COVID-19 & Your Dental Treatment: Update

1 COVID-19 Update: AGPs1

As you'll know, the practice re-opened after lockdown on 10th June 2020, for emergencies only. As COVID-19 shows no signs of going away, in this post we'll look at what's been happening at Plumfield since and what you can expect in the near future.

What's Next?

  • These treatments are known as Aerosol Generating Procedures (AGPs), as they require the use of high speed instruments which generate a high volume of spray, or 'aerosol' during treatment. This aerosol carries viruses and bacteria from the mouth, such as COVID-19. The aerosol can hang in the air, before settling on surfaces. 

  • Look out for our next post in this series - all about the safety measures we'll be taking for this type of work to limit spread of COVID-19 in the community and what that means for you.

We'd like to thank you all for your continued support of the practice and your commitment to working with us, for better dental health. Once again, we're giving priority to those in pain, patients who were mid-treatment before lockdown, Plan members and the vulnerable.
