We hope you are all keeping well and safe during the recent months.
We continue to work in our ‘new normal’ routine and we are still limited in how many patients we can see at the practice due to the time in which a surgery must be left following certain procedures, where our clinicians use anything that generates an aerosol.
We must also adhere to social distancing in the practice and we have adopted a safe patient flow throughout the practice in order to help avoid patients passing one another.
Strict PPE is still extremely important in dentistry and although we understand that communication is not always as easy, we must continue in line with our standard operating procedure and government advice.
We are pleased to receive such fantastic feedback on our new patient portal, which allows you to complete your medical history and documentation at home or before arriving for your appointment. This again helps with reducing contact within the practice, helping keep our staff and yourselves safe.
We are now seeing routine examinations and hygiene visits where possible.
As a practice, we have prioritised children and those with greater needs in the first instance, and we ask if you have yet to be contacted following a postponed appointment, to contact the practice.
You may benefit from a video consultation with a clinician and this is something that we are pleased we can now offer. These calls will be carried out through the secure platform Doctorlink, where the dentist will simply send you a link to begin the video consultation.
Our commitment to seeing anyone with an emergency is still the same and we urge you to contact the practice to book an appointment with one of our dentists. We should add that this may not be your usual dentist at this time.
We are still asking patients not to come to the practice unless they have an appointment and of course if you have any COVID-19 symptoms you should stay away and seek advice through NHS 111 online.
We stand by “prevention is better than cure” and understand the importance of routine appointments, but during these times, you can help by playing a good part in the prevention by maintaining good oral hygiene and keeping to a good diet.
We take pride in looking after the dental healthcare of our patients. We believe in building trust, listening to what is important to them and delivering their care with a team that share the same values.
We provide where required a range of extensive treatments in one accessible location where patients are never judged.
The Maltings Dental Practice is situated in Grantham, Lincolnshire. As a former brewery, our building was converted to a Dental Practice in 1979. We are one of the largest Dental Practices in the area and continue to grow to this day. We have a long established and excellent local reputation.
Our location is convenient and our dental treatments are financially accessible.
