Coronavirus updated information
A message to our patients
Malpas Dental Care is part of Portman Dental Care, who are committed to doing the right things for the right reasons. With this in mind we have decided that it is in the best interests of our patients, colleagues and clinicians that all Portman Dental Care UK practices will be moving to emergency only treatment during the current phase of the Coronavirus outbreak. This means we will be stopping all non-emergency treatment of all patients for the coming weeks.
We hope this change is short-lived but as always, our commitment to the health and safety of our patients and our people is paramount to us and means we are obliged to take this unprecedented step.
If you have an appointment for a non-emergency procedure, we will be in touch to reschedule this. If we have not been in touch and you are due to attend, please call us directly to check if your treatment counts as emergency treatment and therefore you can attend.
We would also like to remind all our patients who are attending emergency appointments that if you or anyone in your household is experiencing symptoms of Coronavirus, you should adhere to government guidelines on social distancing and cancel your appointment. Emergency appointments for patients with suspected or confirmed Coronavirus will be referred to designated emergency dental centres, which have been set up to care for infected patients.
If you have developed Coronavirus symptoms you should use the 111 online support service for details of what to do. Only call NHS 111 if you are unable to access the online service.
Please contact us if you have any questions or concerns. We are committed to continue serving our community through this challenging time and are here to help. We look forward to seeing you back in practice in the very near future.
