COVID-19: NOTICE TO ALL PATIENTS

Dear All,

As you will have heard, dental practices in the UK are allowed to re-open from the 8th June. The health and safety of our patients and staff are paramount, and we will therefore be making a number of changes to our service in line with the latest COVID-19 policies. We therefore ask you to kindly bear with us as we will initially be running a reduced by-appointment-only service dealing with dental emergencies, urgent open courses of treatment and filtering through any backlog as a result of the lockdown. We will be contacting patients that have open courses of treatments and rearranging their appointments.

There have been numerous changes in our guidelines necessary to maintain patient safety during the COVID-19 pandemic, as a result our service is limited for the foreseeable future, we will be slowly increasing our availability for routine care to normalise our services. In the meantime we are open and providing urgent care, if you have a dental emergency please call us on 0208 303 4077 or NHS 111 out of hours.

We would also like to ask that you kindly pay attention to the following changes:

  1. Please only arrive at the practice if you have an appointment. If you do not have an appointment and wish to speak to someone please contact us via telephone or email:reception@bexleyheathdental.co.uk.
  2. Please arrive a few minutes before your appointment and a member of staff will greet you. You will be provided with an alcohol hand rub and escorted to your treatment surgery.
  3. Please maintain social distancing of 2 metres while on-site. We kindly ask you not to bring any other members of your family or friends with you to your appointment. If your child is attending the practice for an appointment, then we ask for only one escorting adult to attend with them.
  4. To avoid large queues at the desk and build-up of traffic within the practice, for your safety we ask that you call back to book any follow-up appointments. Please bring your own pen to fill out any necessary forms.
  5. We would also like to ask that all payments aremade by card where possible for cross-infection reasons.
  6. If you are a patient classed as at risk or shielding, please advise the receptionist when making an appointment.
  7. If you have any COVID-19 symptoms, you should not attend the practice

For orthodontic patients, please note that we will contact you on Thursday 4th June in order to rebook your appointments. Again we kindly ask for your patience and flexibility when re-booking appointments, as the lockdown has inadvertently lengthened treatment times and we will endeavour to do our best to get everyone's treatment back on track.

Thank you for your understanding and we are looking forward to welcoming you once again into the practice.

Your Facial Aesthetic Options

Anti Wrinkle Injections

Anti-Wrinkle Injections

Muscle relaxing injections are used to soften the appearance of forehead, frown lines and crows' feet. They can be used to treat migraines and clenching. It is a popular and safe treatment that achieves a refreshed, younger look. Results last between 3 to 6 months.

Nose Shaping Fillers

Nose Shaping Fillers

The shape of the nose can be improved using dermal fillers: these are hyaluronic acid gels which are placed into the nose to straighten it, make it look narrower or correct the tip. This is ideal for those who don't wish to undergo rhinoplasty (nose) surgery but desire a subtle change. Results last between 6 to 12 months.

Face Thread Lift

Face Thread Lift

This procedure involves placing threads within your face to improve the appearance of sagging cheeks, jowls and neck. Threads stimulate production of new collagen which leads to a natural face lift. It is less invasive than a surgical face lift and has quicker recovery times. Results last between 2 to 3 years.

Lip Injections

Lip & Cheek Fillers

Dermal fillers are gels made of hyaluronic acid (HA) which naturally occurs in our body and is responsible for maintaining plump and firm skin. With age, we gradually lose the hyaluronic acid in our skin which leads to formation of lines, folds and sagging skin. Dermal fillers are used to replace the lost HA and by doing so restores the plumpness of the face. Lip enhancement means placing non-permanent dermal fillers to increase volume of the lips in order to achieve a luscious, alluring appearance of the lips. Results last between 6 to 12 months.

Acid Face Peel

Acid Face Peel

Face peels can produce younger and healthier looking skin. They improve tone and texture of the skin by brightening it, removing age spots, reducing hyperpigmentation and acne scarring. They act as an anti-ageing tool by softening lines and wrinkles.

Vampire Facial

PRP Vampire Facial

Platelet rich plasma (PRP therapy) reverses the ageing process by placing growth factors into the skin to repair and rejuvenate. PRP is used to give skin a more youthful and radiant appearance. Growth factors are harvested from a small amount of your own blood and placed into the desired areas. Treatment is repeated every 3 months and later once or twice a year.
