Back to work from 15th June (2020-06-19 10:12:52)

We are safely back to work offering home appointments and hsopital and care home clinics as of 15th June 2020. We have a  detailed COVID Standard Operating Procedure in place to protect our patients, dental teams and hospital and care home staff and although the range of treatments we can offer is currently restricted, we can still provide a good service within a reasonable time.

Looking forward to welcoming existing patients back and to meeting new patients - if you are having difficulty accessing dental care please give us a call and we will do our best to help.

 

Care Home Clinics - Dental Triage (2020-04-24 11:01:43)

We have written to all  homes participating in our regular dental clinics – first, to say that we send our best wishes and much admiration to all of you during what must be a very challenging time.

Given that we operate to very strict cross-infection protocols and equip our dental teams with all the PPE needed safely to carry out their work, we hope it won’t be too long before we can resume dental clinics.

In the meantime we would like to offer you an anytime telephone triage service for residents experiencing dental pain or other issues. Please feel free to call us on 01304 842995 Monday to Friday between 09.30 and 17.30 and email us on enquiries@themobiledentistcompany.com at weekends and out of hours. We will arrange for one of our dentists to call you back as soon as possible and can also use Skype to view the patient if you have this facility.

All we ask is that a consent form has been completed and sent to us in respect of any patient needing triage. In the case of patients we have not seen before, please email us a completed consent form at the time of enquiry.

The dentist can prescribe antibiotics if required, or appropriate dental products and advise on pain relief or any other actions which may assist the patient until they can be seen. If an urgent appointment is required, it should be possible to refer the patient to the nearest NHS emergency dental care hub.

We hope to support you as much as possible until things get back to normal so please do call us if you need help or advice.

Preventive Care (2013-11-13 12:31:01)

Having regular check-ups and hygiene treatments is the best way to maintain oral and dental health and to stop problems occurring.

When people go into residential care, many stop accessing dental care. At The Mobile Dentist Company we can provide regular preventive care through our Denplan Essentials scheme for just £7 per week, a small proportion of the cost of residential care.
