Reducing the risk of Covid-19 transmission

We continue to see patients for all treatments, routine appointments and urgent dental care. Those who are clinically vulnerable, shielding, or who for medical reasons are unable to have the Covid-19 vaccination will be offered shielded appointments.

Please do not come to the practice if you or a member of your household have any cold or flu type symptoms. We’ll be happy to reschedule any appointments – do contact us as soon as you can.

Patient screening

At least 48 hours before your appointment, we need to receive your completed online health screening form and your medical history form. The link for both of these will have been sent you by email. Even if there has been no change since you last completed a medical history form for us, we must have an updated version as a legal requirement. If you have any difficulties in seeing to this, please contact our team who will be happy to assist. At the practice you will be asked to sign any treatment or consent forms as usual, and invited to book your next appointment.

Coming to the practice

Please arrive no more than five minutes before your appointment to avoid there being too many patients in the reception area at once. One adult only can attend with a child – we ask you not to bring in additional family members.

Your safety

In everything we do, health and safety is our priority. We use an environmentally safe surface disinfectant, proven to be effective against coronavirus. Clinical and common areas, including door handles and surfaces, are disinfected between patients, and we have introduced the ViruskillerTM technology air purification system throughout the practice. The ViruskillerTM neutralises airborne viruses and bacteria from the air before they are inhaled. We have installed VK401 Radic8 units from a leading name in clean air technology, and members of our clinical team wear masks, gowns, visors, aprons and special high-filtration masks.

Our policies are continually reviewed and updated. If you have any questions, please contact us on care@improveyoursmile.co.uk. We look forward to welcoming you at Woodford House – as always.
