This guidline will be updated periodically in line with the change of guidelines from the department of health and our regulatory organisations.
Throughout the pandemic, we have strived to ensure that Caspian Bespoke Dentistry is as safe as possible for all patients, staff, and visitors.
Currently, everyone within the practice will be asked to wear a face covering (unless exempt), everyone will still be asked to socially distance, and staff will still wear appropriate personal protective equipment. This will also mean that we will continue to restrict the number of patients within the waiting area; whilst we appreciate that this can become frustrating, we feel that it is safest to maintain these small precautions for the good of all within the practice.
Keeping you safe
Your health and wellbeing is our first priority. In visiting our practice, you can rest assured that you will be greeted with our spotlessly clean surgeries and stringent decontamination processes, which have been in place for years. Due to Covid-19, we have put extra measures in place. Here is some useful information about visiting the practice during this time.

A Note about Chaperones
We politely ask that a chaperone attend with a patient, only if absolutely necessary. We do appreciate that some patients may require a chaperone (for example a child attending with their parent or carer, or an individual with a physical or leaning disability). As far as possible, a chaperone should be from the same household as the patient. If appropriate to do so, chaperones will be asked to leave and wait outside the surgery whilst all procedures are carried out. We understand that this may not always be possible (for example where the patient is a young child or where the patient would be distressed to be left alone). In such cases, team members will pay particular attention to the Faculty of General Practice’s guidance, which advises that ‘there should be an individual case by case risk assessment of whether parents/carers or guardians should be present in the surgery during treatment and make sure that this is done as safely as possible where this is deemed essential.
Please note, chaperones will be required to complete the same COVID-19 screening questionnaire as the attending patient.
