Welcome to the Spalding Crescent Dental Practice

[01/06/2020]

Dear Patient, please read our Covid-19 Update:

It was announced that dental practices can open to routine care from Monday 8 June 2020.

Our practice will be opening but we just wanted to be clear that this may not be business as usual. The treatments you are offered may be different to those you received before, depending on staff and equipment available. It will take some time before services return to what you previously experienced as normal. Please be patient.

Our community has been through a lot over the last few months, and all of us are looking forward to resuming our normal habits and routines. While many things have changed, one thing has remained the same: our commitment to your safety.

Infection control has always been a top priority for our practice and you may have seen this during your visits to our surgery. Our infection control processes are made so that when you receive care, it’s both safe and comfortable. We want to tell you about the infection control procedures we follow in our practice to keep patients and staff safe.

Our practice follows infection control guidelines made by the governing bodies. We are up-to-date on new guidance that has been issued. We do this to make sure that our infection control procedures are current and adhere to recommendations.

You may see some changes when it is time for your next appointment. We made these changes to help protect our patients and staff. For example:

  • Our practice will communicate with you beforehand to ask some screening questions. You’ll be asked those same questions again at your appointment
  • We have hand sanitiser that we will ask you to use when you enter the practice. You will also find some in the reception area and other places in the practice for you to use as needed.
  • We no longer offer magazines, children’s toys and so forth, since those items are difficult to clean and disinfect
  • Appointments will be managed to allow for social distancing between patients. That might mean that you’re offered fewer options for scheduling your appointment.

We will do our best to allow greater time between patients to reduce waiting times for you, as well as to reduce the number of patients in the reception area at any one time.

How you can help:

  • With the exception of children and patients with carers, patients should come alone
  • A distance of at least 2 metres must be observed if another patient is present in the dental practice
  • Payment should be made by card where possible
  • Staff will not shake your hand
  • If you show symptoms following appointment booking, you should contact the practice by phone
  • Please do not arrive early to the practice. If necessary, you should wait outside the practice in your car
  • Please do not arrive without an appointment
  • Patients should come wearing a mask if possible or be prepared to wear one.

Sincerely,

The team at the Crescent Dental Practice.

Whitening

 Unhappy with the colour of your teeth? We treat many teeth   whitening cases where we have achieve up to three clinical shades   lighter than the starting shade. Ask your dentist about tooth whitening   and a consultation will be arranged.  

Implants

Missing teeth? Loose Dentures?

The best available treatment for both of these problems is standard implants and mini implants.

Treatments from £500 and payment plasns available

Preventative Dentistry:

Preventative dentistry is about maintaining good oral health. Tooth decay may or may not cause discomfort and pain but either way this means the tooth is deteriorating. Regular visits help cut down on dental problems and unexpected bills.

Maintaining your oral health also means keeping on top of any associated costs. We offer a dental payment plan – Denplan Essentials - with Denplan the UK’s leading dental payment plan specialist - see above. This allows you to spread the cost of your dental care on a monthly basis. For a fixed monthly sum of £10.95 (for children this is lower) you benefit from what is shown above.

We are currently taking on new patients!

 

Our preventative team are:

DR B KHAN (Principal Dentist)

DR S KHAN (Associate Dentist)

MRS I KAREIVE (Dental Hygienist/Assistant)

MISS A SZCZYGIEL (Receptionist)


All members of staff undertake continuing professional development.
