COVID-19 Update May 2020

COVID-19 Update – The Story So Far

We always do our best to keep our valued patients updated with what’s happening at Glendair Dental Practice. Most of you will have been following the regular COVID-19 updates on our Facebook page, which you can see here. For those of you that may not be on social media, or would just like to read a complete update – you’re in the right place.

In this post we will be recounting the past few months of the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic and what this has meant for Glendair Dental, including the facial aesthetics side

When the news of the COVID-19 outbreak started circulating, Glendair began to continuously monitor the ever-changing guidelines. Our strict hygiene and cleaning protocols were reinforced on a daily basis to keep the practice clean and disinfected to the highest standards possible.

This was nothing new for us. We already adhere to the best practice guidelines at all times. We follow strict protocols to sterilise all dental instruments used during treatment. In addition, all our team members are trained in cross-infection and routine hand washing.

At this uncertain time, we thanked the continued loyalty and trust of our patients. It was time to put into place an action plan to assure patients still wanting to visit the practice. For anyone over the age of 70 or medically compromised, we put in place measures for out of hours appointments. We put in procedures to ask every patient entering the building if they had any symptoms or had been in contact with anyone who had been abroad. We also posted out dental care products with guidance on how to look after your oral health for those that were self-isolating. 

During this time, we also put out a letter to our patients:

Our patients are not just patients, they’re part of the Glendair family and families have to pull together during difficult and uncertain times.

So if any of our patients who are age 70 and over need any assistance with shopping, collecting prescriptions or posting letters, we will do our very best to help.

UK Goes into Lockdown

On the 23rd March, it was time for change. The UK was put into lockdown. With confirmation from the Chief Dental Officer, we reduced our service to telephone and email for emergencies only. It was not a decision we took took lightly. It was our responsibility to protect our patients, our team and our families from COVID-19.

Weeks turned into months. Principal dentist Matthew Lamb worked diligently to ensure patients in pain received the highest level of patient care despite the circumstances. This meant offering advice, prescribing pain relief or antibiotics and delivering temporary filling or crown re-fixing kits. Matt also referred to the Urgent Dental Care Centres when necessary.

We donated our unused hand sanitiser and other personal protective equipment to care homes and hospices. Our oxygen supply went to the NHS. 

Meanwhile, the Glendair Team got their fundraising hats on. They created lots of different challenges to raise money for frontline NHS workers! 

In April, we introduced Virtual Consultations for dental treatments and facial aesthetics treatments. For registered or new patients, this allows you to discover the ways we can help, all from the comfort of your own home. We’ve also set up VIP priority lists to organise patients who need or wish to be seen as soon as possible. 

we offer video chats

May 2020 Update

As the COVID-19 government advice started to change again, the dental team went to the practice one by one to be fitted with respirator face masks on the 7th May. 

Our dentist Cate kindly filmed a video to show you to expect the team to look like during your appointment when it is finally safe for us to reopen.

This is just one of the steps we are undertaking to protect our team and patients. Practice managers Bev and Ruth have been working tirelessly with Matt, putting together new operating procedures. We have to adapt the practice to ensure it’s as safe as possible by reducing the risk of infection. We have invested in various anti-viral equipment for the reception area and surgeries, which we will introduce you to as and when it’s set up.

To be notified of the updates as they are happening, stay in touch with us on social media. As the guidance may vary for different treatments, we advise you follow our Dental Facebook page and our Facial Aesthetics Facebook page. We are hoping to see you all again very soon now in person. 

As a final message for now, we want to let you know that Glendair has and always will have your safety at the heart of everything we do. If you have any concerns or questions, please let us know.

What’s happening at Glendair?

Glendair renovations

As you have probably seen from the numerous photos posted on our Facebook page, there has been a lot going on at Glendair Dental Practice

But what exactly has been happening lately? Have we had an extension? These are the questions we’ve been asked a lot, so we’ll be revealing all right here in this blog post! 

(Ps. Get ready for A LOT of before and after photos!)

The story begins with Matthew. As many of you are probably aware, Mat is the principal dentist here at Glendair. 

Matthew Lamb

For the past seven years, Mat has been busy gaining advanced qualifications in both dental implant placement and complex dentistry. At the same time, he has continued to deliver the high standards of care that you have come to expect at Glendair. 

As you can imagine, this has become a bit of a juggling act for Mat! It has resulted in him working longer hours whilst trying to balance this complex work around his normal working day.

After a while (and after much thought and deliberation), Mat decided to devote all of his time to this rapidly developing area of complex dentistry. With that came the decision to build a brand new surgery, creating an implant referral centre at our practice.

So after a lot of planning and preparation, work finally began bright and early on Monday 12th September 2016.

Instead of extending the practice, the plan was to renovate the current space we had, so the first job was to say goodbye to our staff room and clear EVERYTHING out.

Who needs a removal company when you have the Glendair team!?

After that, the fabulous builders with DB Dental arrived to get started!

We captured the whole journey in photographs so you can see exactly how the hallway and staff room were transformed.

Here we go!

With everything removed, the builders began to rip everything out.

Once this was complete, the wall that separated the staff room from the corridor was knocked down, to create a larger space.

The bricks and rubble were then cleared away.

A new wall was then put up to create the patient consultation room!

Here’s Mat and his dental nurse Sophie taking a look at the progress half way through the renovations…

Exactly one month later, it was time to say to farewell to the builders who had been brilliant throughout the whole process! Pleasant, professional, immaculate… they were a joy to have around!

Thank you to the DB Dental builders!

With just a week to go before the first patients were booked in, the painter and decorators then arrived to add the finishing touches.

As for the consultation room, we are just waiting for the final items to arrive, so stay tuned to see our final implant referral centre… exciting times ahead! 

South Normanton Colts are Champions!

South Normanton Colts U15s Win League

Here at Glendair Dental Practice in Alfreton, Derbyshire we love getting involved with the local community. For the past 6 years, we have been sponsoring South Normanton Colts football club.

The under 15s have recently been celebrating becoming champions after winning the Division 1 title. It has been a great season for all of the team, especially as they won the Division 2 title last year, and also came runners up in the cup final! This is an amazing achievement, so we would just like to say a massive congratulations from everyone here at Glendair.

It has been amazing supporting South Normanton Colts over the years, so we’re sad to see that the team will be coming to an end. It is however, brilliant to know that they are going out on a high as champions.
