Dental Practices in England had been given the go ahead to re-open from Monday 8th June 2020, in line with the latest measures to release lockdown announced by the Government.
During Lockdown JDRM Dental Care had been providing NHS Urgent Dental Care from our ‘Hubs’. Four of JDRM Dental Care’s seven practices were delighted to be selected by NHS England to be the Hubs for Leicester, Leicestershire, and Rutland.
We have been providing the only Face to Face dentistry available to you throughout the Lockdown and will continue to do so.
As we resume NHS dental care, we must do so in Covid secure way. Therefore, JDRM Dental Care are following NHS guidance and are resuming dental care for our patients in phases, in line with the Covid threat level, which currently sits at Level 3. Therefore, the service is currently providing:
Pre-assessment by Phone/Video Consultation with a dentist for: Urgent dental care (No charge) Face to Face dental services with focus on alleviation of pain at a JDRM Dental Care practice. If your consultation results in the need for face to face care, your dentist will refer you for an appointment. Our dental team will then contract you to book this in. This face to face appointment may be at your usual practice, or it may be at another of the JDRM Dental Care practices, with your permission. (Usual NHS charges)
When the threat level reduces to 2, JDRM Dental Care will be able to move towards the provision of more routine care, this will include:
Prevention Treatment for low risk groups like children Completing any treatment that was unfinished in March 2020, due to lockdown
JDRM Dental Care will then be able to safely move towards dental examinations and more routine and cosmetic dental care you have previously enjoyed.
While we appreciate you may be keen to return to your routine dental care in the way it was delivered before Covid-19, we have had to make changes to way we deliver your care to ensure we care for you in the safest way.
There is no need to contact the practice at this time for your routine dental care unless you have an emergency. We will call you in due course to book you in for your routine care as the Covid threat level reduces.
We appreciate your patience during this transitional period as we all do our best to get us back safely.
