Phases of Return
The latest announcement on 30/07/2020 from the Scottish Government is that we are to remain in phase 3 on the routemap out of this pandemic. Dentists in Scotland can see NHS registered patients for routine dental care as well as emergency dental care, which does not involved the use of an Aerosol Generating Procedure (AGP). NHS patients in need of AGP would still need to be referred to one of the Urgent Dental Care Centres. Our appointment is scheduled strictly over the phone only, 3-4 days in advance. Things are still a long way off the normalilty described in Phase 4. Please refer to the SG websites for more information. We at Springfield Dental Care are following the Scottish CDO’s routemap of 4-phase resumption of normal dental care. If you need to be referred to an urgent treatment centre, your dentist will find the nearest UDCC (Edinburgh or Livinston) which is convenient to you. You may not be seen by the UDCC on the same day, as the demand for the service is high. We hope that all the information provided is helpful to our patients, and to be informed of the CDO’s routemap for the resumption of normal dental care. Springfield Dental Care. 30 July 2020.
