Urgent Endodontic Clinic

DURING THE COVID 19 PANDEMIC

 

We are delighted to announce that from the 8th June 2020 we are able to see and treat patients for endodontic care on an emergency basis. We are anticipating a return to our routine referral service as soon as government enforced restrictions on non-urgent dentistry are lifted.

We will operate in a similar fashion to the Urgent Dental Centres (UDC) in the hospital service, but with enhanced cross-infection control policies and a strong bias towards saving teeth rather than extracting them, wherever possible. This will be achieved using the advanced diagnostic and treatment protocols that we are known for. Our aim will be to effectively deal with your pain/swelling dental issue and stabilise the situation for 3 to 6 months, after which time you can hopefully complete treatment in a more usual environment.

All patients will be thoroughly assessed by our clinicians before we can offer an appointment. We mainly treat patients who have been referred to us by their dentists, but for this service you can self-refer and we will discuss your dental issues. We will try to see everyone except those patients with suspected or confirmed Covid-19, patients who have been advised to self-isolate or those experiencing viral symptoms. 

Of paramount importance is the safety of patients and staff and we have taken the following steps to ensure the highest standard of cross infection control:

  • We will use one surgery for consultation at Level 2 Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) and the second surgery for aerosol generating procedures at Level 3 PPE including FFP3 respirators.

  • We have adopted and improved upon the current gold standard hospital UDC standard operating protocol (SOP), adding additional layers of patient and staff protection.

  • We have deep cleaned the practice and coated all surfaces with a Si-Quot anti-bacterial and anti-viral compound, providing long lasting active protection against SARS CoV-2. We will be carrying out ongoing surface treatments together with microbial sampling to ensure the highest levels of infection control.

The fees for this clinic are charged at £400 an hour and will include all x-rays, CBCT scan, materials, and enhanced PPE. We will provide you and your dentist with a report of the appointment. Consultations alone can last between 30-45 minutes, with added emergency treatment 75-90 minutes. A CBCT scan alone with reports will be charged at the usual £195.

Please contact us on 0207-224-1999 or email joanne@endodontics.co.uk if you wish to be assessed for an appointment.

As our service requires special conditions it is only available Monday to Friday from 8am to 7pm. Out of these hours please leave a message on our answerphone or email joanne@endodontics.co.uk.


The Process -

  1. We will provide you with a link to register for the clinic. The form will include Pain History and Medical History forms.

  2. Once we have received your registration, your forms will be assessed by us.

  3. We will call within 1-2 hours during working hours (Mon-Fri, 8am to 7pm). Out of hours we will try and reply as soon as possible.

  4. Our preference will always be to avoid a face-to-face appointment, but if analgesia or antibiotics are not suitable, we will arrange an appropriate appointment.

  5. The appointment will be confirmed by email and we will take your credit card details as there will be no reception facilities at the practice. Payment will be processed after the appointment. Please note that a cancellation fee of £250/hour will be charged for cancellations made less than 48 hours in advance of your appointment. 

  6. We will maintain contact with you prior to the appointment so that no waiting occurs within the practice environment.

  7. A diagnosis will be reached based on the history of your problem and an external scan using our in-house CBCT scanner. Further mouth examination and tests may be necessary. Level 2 PPE will be used during this stage.

  8. If dental treatment is deemed necessary, we will discuss the plan with you and go through the consent procedure.

  9. Any treatment carried out will be done in our AGP surgery using Level 3 PPE.

  10. We will endeavour to deal with the inflammatory or infective issue and place a temporary filling/restoration, which should last for 3 to 6 months, stabilising the problem

  11. A report will be generated and emailed to you detailing the diagnosis and treatment carried out, together with any future recommendation. Links will be provided to download of any images, x-rays or scans taken.
