Background

Coronaviruses are a large family of viruses that are common in many different species of animals. Rarely these can infect people and then spread such as with MERS, SARS, and now with COVID-19.

Most often, spread from person-to-person happens with close contact. Person-to-person spread is thought to occur mainly via respiratory droplets produced when an infected person coughs or sneezes, similar to how influenza and other respiratory pathogens spread. These droplets can land in the mouths or noses of people who are nearby or possibly be inhaled into the lungs. It's currently unclear if a person can get 2019-nCoV by touching a surface or object that has the virus on it and then touching their own mouth, nose, or possibly their eyes.

Our Policy

It is our normal daily practice to take cross contamination seriously. The approach towards the spread and potential contamination of Corona Virus is the same as all other potential threats. The Dental Surgery will continue to uphold its exemplary standards of cross infection with the use of personal protective equipment, hand sanitary care and instrument sterilization as well as the use of disposable items where applicable.

Please follow the guidance from NHS Inform:

Otherwise, we hope to continue operating normally and thank you for your understanding.
