A letter from Angus Walls to All patients receiving NHS Dental Care in the Lothians

You will be aware that the Scottish Government moved the population of Edinburgh and the
Lothians to level zero in terms of their Coronavirus Protection Levels on the 19th July. This
has resulted in further easing of restrictions in both private and public settings, and I am
writing to you about dental care in this context.

The change to level zero has had no effect in terms of the current infection prevention and
control measures that dentists are required to take when delivering dental treatment. These
preventative measures are designed to protect both the public and the dental team from
proliferation of the virus as a result of dental treatment. When dentists work in your mouth
they often create fine sprays or aerosols of water and saliva which can carry the virus and
potentially support its spread from one person to another (in the same way a cough or
sneeze can). As a result dental teams continue to work under very strict protocol to prevent
viral transmission that in turn mean that the dentist can see fewer people in a given time
period.

Scottish Government has tasked all NHS dentists with prioritising the care they can deliver in
this situation to ensure that people are not experiencing pain and discomfort first, and also
to prioritise those people for care for whom a dental infection might make another health
condition worse. Any remaining capacity can then be used to address more general patient
needs.

This will mean that some of the routine care you were used to prior to the pandemic may
not be available from your practice at present, or may occur with reduced frequency, so for
example a dental check which you used to have every 6 months may now take place at 12 or
more monthly intervals unless you are experiencing pain or discomfort.

Please be assured that your dentist and their team are doing their best to see as many
people as they can and resolve as many problems as they can while working in very difficult
conditions.

Our staff are available over the telephone on 0131 669 3333 weekdays between 9-5. We are here to help if you have any Dental issues.Please do not hesitate to contact us if you would like advice or guidance.

Due to the current restrictions within the NHS we are currently seeing patients but we are limited to the amount of patients we can see daily and we are continuing to prioritise pain or urgent care. We are keeping up to date with all the information and recommendations as it becomes available. If you are in need of treatment but it is not classed as priority you will be added to a waiting list for treatment.

Currently we are unable to see patients for Exams / Scale and Polish but we are hoping this changes soon.

As always the health and well being of our patients and staff is of great importance. We would like to take this opportunity to thank you all for your patience in these unknown times and we wish you and your family all the very best . We look forward to seeing you all in the future.

Kindest regards from all the staff at Dental Express.
