After a long and intense discussion with the relevant authorities we have finally been allowed to open again. (Source: CQC – https://www.cqc.org.uk/sub-section/dentists)
Based on scientifically proven protocols and with the experience of over 8,500 patient visits from January until May in our clinic in Germany we have decided start working again on the 01.06.2020.
We have taken all the necessary protective measures to protect both, your health and the health of our employees in the best possible way.
However, please note the following information for your and our safety.
The COVID-19 virus can have different effects on everyone. Most infected people develop mild to moderate symptoms and get well without hospitalisation.
We would like you not to visit our practice if you have one of the following symptoms.
Most common symptoms:
Less common symptoms:
We would like you to call 111 and /or your doctor immediately if you have shown some of the severe symptoms below:
On average, 4-6 days pass from infection with the virus until symptoms appear in one person. However, it can also take up to 14 days.
We would like you not to visit our practice if you have:
Been in contact with a confirmed coronavirus case
been in an area or hotspot where the new coronavirus has spread in the past two weeks
If so, call us first on 020 3745 7455 or email us (firstname.lastname@example.org)
We will then discuss the further procedure with you!
The spread of the new type of corona virus is currently declining in the UK, but we still have to be vigilant. People who are infected with the virus can infect their fellow human beings through sneezing, coughing and maybe through physical contact (handshake).
If you have cold symptoms and have either been in an affected area for the past 14 days or have had contact with (possibly) an infected person, it is necessary to clarify whether you have Covid-19.
Again you can call 111 or us from home and find out more.
If you find out that someone who has been in contact with the corona virus within the past 14 days has infected you, please report it immediately to the relevant authorities – regardless of the symptoms or the telephone number 111.
With your cooperation, you can help prevent the spread of Covid-19.
At this point, we ask for your understanding of the necessary protective measures and wish you that you can get through these difficult times unscathed.
