Following the announcement on the 4th January 2021 of a national lockdown, we can confirm that both our Stroud and Bishop’s Cleeve clinics remain open to serve you.

It has been confirmed by Government and The Chief Dental Officer for England that “Dentistry is an essential medical service” and that “Patients are entitled to travel for medical appointments, including dental”.

In the March lockdown we spoke to over 200 patients who had dental emergencies, so we are delighted that the Government have recognised the importance of dentistry and oral health has within general health.

Your Confident Dental & Implant Clinics – Stroud and Cleevelands, Bishop’s Cleeve near Cheltenham will still be open. There are no restrictions with regards to medical treatment and you are actively encouraged to keep your appointments. At Confident Dental & Implant Clinics – Stroud & Cleevelands, Bishop’s Cleeve, we have all the necessary Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) and will continue to follow our high standards in cross infection control.

What next?
Please continue to attend your appointments. It is important to avoid a deterioration in your oral health. We have excellent infection control procedures along with a robust triaging policy to ensure the safety of both patients and staff.

If you are worried about your attendance, please contact us to discuss your concerns and we can always postpone your treatment till a later date.

We continue to recommend that patients in the high-risk category delay non-essential treatment until further guidance has been given by the relevant authorities.

When you arrive:
We advise that you wear a mask at all times while inside the dental practice and only remove your mask at the request of the dental professional.

Please do not arrive more than 5 minutes early for an appointment due to social distancing guidelines.

As you enter the building you will need to use the alcohol disinfectant rub to disinfectant your hands.

The treatment rooms will be prepared prior to your appointment with all surfaces disinfected after each patient. Our disinfection fogging procedures will continue to be used throughout the day in each surgery. We have sourced PPE and unlike the start of the Pandemic (March 2020 in the UK), there is no shortage.

Please do not be concerned as we continue to maintain high standards of cross infection control.

Stay safe and please contact us 01453 764287 or if you have any questions.

Best wishes,

Your team at Confident Dental & Implant Clinics – Stroud and Cleevelands, Bishop’s Cleeve.
