Your Safety is Our Number One Priority
Our Comprehensive COVID-19 Protection Measures
At Bliss Dental, we have spent months reviewing everything we do in great detail. We want to assure our patients that dental treatment at our practice will be carried out with the safety of all of our patients and team members as our most important priority.
Dr Jeremy Bliss is a founding member and director of a group of independent dentists called Pandora Dental, which has working tirelessly to research and implement global referencing on safe standards of procedure. We are proud to have created a “gold standard” of safety and patient care to be effective against Covid-19.
These are some of the important changes you will see when you visit us for dental care:
Clean Air Systems
We have invested in high quality, modern clean air technology in every room – this will ensure there is clean and purified air in our practice. The machines remove 99.99% of respiratory viruses including Coronavirus.
Health & Wellbeing Check
We will ask you a few questions about your experience with Covid-19, how you feel and if your family members have been well. We want to provide dental care for our patients when it is safe to do so. However, with careful diary management, we are prepared for everyone; including the elderly and those with more a complex medical history.
Social distancing is important. We will help you with appointments, consents, and financial matters from the comfort of your home.
We can do new patient video consultations so that we can answer many of your questions even before you visit us.
We will ask you to let us know you have arrived; then please remain in your car (if that is how you will be travelling to us). In this way, there will be fewer people within the practice – another attempt at making social distancing work effectively.
After extensive research, we have chosen Salvesen (www.aqualution.co.uk) as our surface disinfectant. It is proven to kill all germs by 99.99% within minutes. It is effective against Coronavirus and it is environmentally safe.
We have purchased suitable masks, gowns, visors, goggles, hats, shoe covers, handwashing soaps, etc. We will be well prepared for your dental treatment.
This is colloquially known as a ‘tooth raincoat’. It is a sheet of rubber which can isolate a tooth or group of teeth – we will use this whenever possible. In this way, there will be minimal aerosol generation during dental procedures. This will make treatment safe and comfortable.
We want to provide high-quality dentistry, with long-lasting results. This takes more time. In addition, we will spend longer cleaning the treatment room between patients for your complete peace of mind.
Screens and Hand Sanitisers
We will have screens at our reception desks, and we will provide sanitisers and masks to our staff and patients. Please feel free to use these products.
Our environment will be even more clutter-free. Our staff and cleaners will, therefore, be able to keep surfaces clean and disinfected.
We are taking our approach to the Covid-19 health situation extremely seriously, however, we maintain our customary friendly, professional and relaxed approach to patient care. We know it is a big deal to go to the dentist in the first place and you may be feeling more anxious, however, Covid-19 should not be a worry for you at Bliss Dental.
