The situation around COVID-19 has developed rapidly and there is now a nationwide order from the Chief Dental Officer for England instructing the closure of all primary care dental practices.
All but the most urgent dental treatment has now been stopped to halt the spread of the virus and protect both patients and dental staff.
Urgent dental care for genuine emergencies will be organised from special centres set up in Leicestershire with the correct Personal Protective Equipment in order to deliver care safely.
If you are a registered patient of the practice, in the first instance, please do call us to discuss any dental problem you may have. You can call 0116 2593386 between 9am-5pm for further advice on accessing emergency services.
Speaking to us first will help alleviate the huge pressure on the NHS at present.
Please see below for our home care advice guide – “with thanks to Dr. Becky Davies, Dr Nilesh Parmar and Shaz Memon”.
Dentists and dental teams are medically trained and may be redeployed by the government in the coming weeks to work within the NHS and help the overburdened doctors and nurses working hard in our hospitals. Some of our team have already volunteered their time for this and consequently we may be stretched in terms of our frontline service to you, our patients.
We are all witnessing an unprecedented level of effort to fight this pandemic and would ask for your help and patience with our efforts to help you through any dental emergency you may have during this enforced closure.
We will re-open as soon as we are instructed that we may do so and will keep you updated as events unfold.
Please continue to check the website https://www.glendental.co.uk/ and our Facebook and Twitter pages for further and ongoing updates and do not hesitate to call or email us should you have any questions.
