We’ve put in place a range of safety protocols to give peace of mind and keep you COVID safe during your treatment at Audley Dental Solutions.
Prior to your appointment with us we will contact you to discuss your current health status. We will ask you if you are exhibiting any symptoms of COVID 19. Symptoms include:
a high temperature – this means you feel hot to touch on your chest or back (you do not need to measure your temperature)
a new, continuous cough – this means coughing a lot for more than an hour, or 3 or more coughing episodes in 24 hours (if you usually have a cough, it may be worse than usual)
a loss or change to your sense of smell or taste – this means you've noticed you cannot smell or taste anything, or things smell or taste different to normal
You will be asked to complete a medical history form online via our secure Portal. This is to reduce the risk of contamination through paper transmission.
On arrival at the practice, you will be asked to park in one of our designated parking spaces. We would ask you to wait in your car. When the Dentist is ready to see you one of our reception team will collect you and invite you into the practice.
We will take your temperature, again ask you if you are fit and well. Ask you to sanitise your hands and provide you with a face mask.
In house we have invested in additional air exchange units and Virus killers to ensure the flow of air meets national recommendations and have dedicated hand sanitising stations.
Our staff have received their Covid vaccinations and go through regular daily checks to ensure they are healthy.
We have strict cross infection control procedures which involve Fallow time.
Our staff wear enhanced PPE for aerosol generating procedures.
Your safety and that of our team are of paramount importance to us and we constantly strive to ensure your visit is both a pleasant but ultimately a safe one.
