Covid Safety Tariff

The global pandemic caused by the COVID-19 virus has had a huge impact on all of our lives and dentistry has changed quite dramatically over the past few months. We have always operated to the highest standards to ensure the safety of our patients and prevent cross-infection. However, we are now required to adopt enhanced levels of Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) and have limitations imposed upon us when we undertake aerosol-generating procedures (AGPs), which are such a prominent part of modern dentistry. These new restrictions have been introduced by our Regulatory Bodies to enhance protection for our staff and our patients and minimise the risk of transmission of infection. In order to fulfill these requirements, we are faced with exceptional costs and in order to survive as a business, we will have to introduce a Covid Safety Tariff of £25 for each private dentistry AGP treatment appointment. This is a temporary charge that will only be applied over the period when we are required to operate AGPs with enhanced PPE. However, it will have to applied to every private patient undergoing an AGP treatment; this includes patients on our Denplan and Privilege Plan schemes. This is a necessary step to ensure we are able to continue to provide the most personalised care possible in a comfortable, caring, and safe environment.
