We're Getting Back To Work!

Covid-19 Update


DELIGHTED TO ANNOUNCE....@ ERRIGAL DENTAL - WE’RE GETTING BACK TO WORK!

Throughout the Covid-19 restrictions Errigal Dental continues to provide our patients access to emergency treatment. For details, please see our previous posts here....  We hope to return to a full working week on Tuesday, June 2nd 2020

Team members will be available for appointment bookings from Thursday May 21st 2020.  Phone 0749176500.

As Covid-19 restrictions are still in place, it’s important we maintain a safe environment for our patients and staff. Therefore, we’ll continue to follow Government Advice and Guidelines for a safe and phased return to work.

When you call us to book an appointment Derval & Amanda will ask you a series of questions;

  • Are you over 70 years old?
  • Do you have any condition or illness whereby your immunity might be compromised (cancer, diabetes etc)?
  • Does anyone you live with, or have regular contact with, have an illness whereby their immunity might be compromised (cancer, diabetes etc)?
  • Have you tested positive for Covid-19 in the last 14 days?

If you answer “Yes” to any of these questions, you may be asked to delay your appointment and come into the practice when the risk of Covid-19 infection to you is less. Virus infection is potentially more severe & dangerous for you; so try to stay at home for now.

You will then be asked:

  • Have you tested positive for Covid-19 in the last 14 days?
  • Have you had a fever (>37.3°C), cold, dry cough, shortness of breath, muscle pain or headache in the last 14 days?
  • Have you been in contact with someone with these symptoms in the last 14 days?
  • Have you visited a high-risk area or quarantine zones in the last 14 days?
  • Have you been in contact with anyone with confirmed Covid-19/ Coronavirus?
  • Have you been in close contact with people with a severe respiratory condition in the last 14 days?

If the answer to any of these is “Yes”, you will be advised to stay away from the practice. You may have the virus and are potentially a risk to staff and other patients in the practice.
When your answer is “No”, you may return in safely for treatment.

When you actually arrive at the practice:

  • You’ll be asked to maintain social distancing & stay 2 meters from the desk. 
  • Patients are requested to wear a protective face mask into and leaving the practice. It will be removed for treatment. 
  • Having checked in, you’ll be directed to a Waiting Area within the practice, or asked to return to your car and await a call or text to notify your dentist is ready to see you.
  • You’re required to hand wash before you enter the surgery (After removing your face mask)
  • You’re advised to hand wash before leaving the practice (After replacing your face mask). 
  • Hand sanitizer is also available throughout the practice. 
  • Take care not to touch surfaces once hand sanitiser has been used.
  • Only those receiving treatment should enter the practice. 
    ​Family/friends should remain outside. Exceptions will only be considered in the case of minors or those in need of assistance. 
  • Cashless Payment for treatment is Requested, Contactless if possible.

When you next meet us
We’ll be wearing additional Personal Protective Equipment (PPE), in the form of masks, visors, gowns or aprons etc. 
We may look a little weird & appear a little intimidating, but don’t worry.....it’s still us under there & it’s just for your and our protection. 

We look forward to seeing you all soon.
Best wishes,

The Errigal Dental Team.

Smile of the Month:

The Patient:
A young man of 18 had taken a knock to his upper front teeth about a year ago. The upper left central incisor had discolored markedly in recent months. Although it wasn’t causing him any pain, he was very disappointed with the colour of the tooth. We discovered the nerve in the tooth had died.  

The Treatment:
We agreed with the patient that we would perform a root canal treatment on the upper left central incisor, to remove the dead nerve that was causing the discoloration. We then carried out a course of whitening; we did our Boutique Whitening on all the patient’s teeth. In the case of the upper left central incisor we also did internal & external whitening, before completing a composite ‘filling’ of the access chamber in the back of the tooth. The result was a dramatic improvement in shade & appearance. The patient was delighted.

Cost:
Root Canal UL1; €425
External/Internal Whitening; €300
Final Composite Restoration UL1; €100
Total; €825
