Our community has been through a lot over the last few months and all of us are looking forward to resuming our normal habits and routines. While many things have changed, at Bellissima clinic, one thing has remained the same, our commitment to your safety and comfort.
Our practice fully opened on the 8th June, it will however, take some time before services return to what you previously experienced as normal.
Infection control has always been a top priority for our practice, we have adopted further infection control measures recommended by our governing bodies.
You will see some changes when you next visit the clinic, to help further protect our patients and staff. Regular Covid antibody screening of our team, protective reception screens, routine temperature checks, hand sanitisers at entry points, upgraded PPE.
Our practice will communicate with you beforehand to ask some screening questions. You’ll be asked those same questions again at your appointment.
We will be booking your appointments to ensure that the Practice and waiting areas are not overcrowded. We will do this by leaving suitable gaps between appointments, making sure that you can attend the practice while maintaining a suitable distance from one another in accordance with government guidelines. We would request that you do not arrive early to the practice and do not arrive without an appointment.
We will also be creating clinics for patients who are most vulnerable, to help minimize contact with others for this group whilst they are at the practice
You will be encouraged to fill in all relevant forms, before you enter the practice. This means that you will not have to touch a pen, paper, or any electronic device other than your own when you attend your appointment. This crucial step greatly reduces touch points at the practice.
Between all appointments the dental team will thoroughly disinfect the dental surgery, reducing the risk of patient exposure to anything harmful while they are in the chair.
And finally, as you leave the practice, we will ask that you pay by card, preferably contactless.
If you have any further questions about these measures, or anything else prior to your appointment, please contact us.
We would like to thank you for your patience and understanding during this difficult time and look forward to seeing you again soon.
