A message from your dentist concerning Covid-19 and our practice operating procedure - 24th Mar 2020

Welcome to Kirkburton Dental Care

Kirkburton Dental Care is a well established village dental practice. We are dedicated to providing preventive dentistry, our aim as a dental team is to give you a personal and professional dental experience. We are proud to offer individually tailored dental advice and guidance to help you care for your teeth and gums and smile for life.

CORONAVIRUS ( Covid-19 ) – IMPORTANT UPDATE  

The practice is closed due to the Covid-19 pandemic.

Dental check-ups and treatments involve close contact between the dentist and patient and so should not take place. Also, dentists and their teams have to avoid using tools like drills and the ones used for scales and polishes. This is to prevent them from catching the virus from an infected patient and passing it on to other patients.

Drills and other high-speed tools create a lot of ‘spray’ from patients’ mouths so dentists need to use protective clothing and equipment.

COVID-19 has a seven-day period before symptoms show, where someone wouldn’t know they had it and could pass it on to others. If an unsuspecting patient had a filling, the spray from doing that procedure would likely infect the dentist and the nurse.

The personal protective equipment dentists wear when using high-speed tools is currently required by hospitals treating coronavirus patients. Without this equipment dentists, hygienists, therapists and nurses are not safe to treat patients as normal.

What if I have a dental emergency?

A dental emergency would be classed as:

  • Dental infection causing swelling or fever
  • Severe dental or facial pain

Assuming you have not got COVID-19 related symptoms, you should call us here on 01484 605812. You may have to leave a message and we will call you back. We will be able to help you decide what your options are.  If you believe or know you have COVID-19 and have a dental emergency, please phone NHS 111.
