Access during COVID-19 pandemic
Our dental team have trained in oral health care but also infection prevention and control too. Dental practices are well-versed in providing safe care and having practised cross-infection control for many years using personal protective equipment. The experience of visiting our practice might be different now, but they remain a safe place to be.
We are continuing to prioritise dental emergencies and deliver care for more urgent dental needs whilst balancing the need to reduce patient contact in the practice by running reduced surgeries along with reduced waiting room capacity. Should you have a dental emergency or require an appointment please contact one of our dental surgeries. We have suspended all routine dental examinations for the time being. We are working our way through the back log of patients that require urgent care, patients at higher risk of oral disease and patients with outstanding treatment.
We are aware that for many of our patients, their dental disease and especially gum health may deteriorate if not controlled and prevented with appropriate care. So, we are trying to manage, control and prevent dental disease as much as we are able to. One of the ways is by having limited hygienist services available, as this offers a direct health benefit. If you wish to book a hygienist appointment please do not hesitate to contact the surgery, the reception team will be happy to help.
As a practice we are continually trying to make the process of attending for face to face appointments as safe as possible and so we have opted for an electronic system for the relevant forms to be filled out. It is important these are filled out ON THE DAY of your appointment and before you attend the surgery.
Please note, we are still open Monday to Thursday 8-5 and Friday 8-4 offering a triage service if you have a dental problem and where necessary a referral to an urgent dental care hub for emergency treatment. 111 is available out of hours but only for emergencies such as swelling, severe pain or persistent bleeding.
Welcome to B & R Dental Care website. We are a family dental practice established over 60 years ago located in the port town of Goole and the nearby market town of Howden.
