Here at Burnside Dental Care, we are continuing to provide a safe environment for staff and patients alike. We really appreciate your patience whilst we go through the remobilisation of NHS services in conjunction with Scottish Government guidance.
Please see the attached letter from NHS Lanarkshire which outlines the current situation as of 1st November 2020.
As is highlighted in the letter, it is still NOT BUSINESS AS USUAL!! There will be no availability for routine examination for the foreseeable future. This is because we are dealing with patients that have been undergoing treatment prior to lockdown, or have been in to see us over the last few months and had teeth dressed with temporary fillings. We also are limited to approx 10 patients per day and as such need to prioritise emergency appointments and those currently undergoing treatment.
We have, however, created some spaces in our diaries to provide treatment on a private basis to meet the demand for these services. This will help the practice remain viable over the coming months. We can also accept new private patients and maintenance plan patients.
If you have any concerns or wish to discuss anything, please give us a call/email/facebook message where one of our helpful team will be able to guide you through your options.
For further information please go to NHS inform.
As always stay safe and thank you all for your continued support and understanding.
