COVID-19 Surcharge

When you next visit our practice you will notice a number of changes in how we work in line with the Government Guidance to ensure the safety of you and the dental team.

As a result of the additional PPE that is now required for the team and yourself to wear, it has unfortunately become necessary for us to make a separate charge for this, known as a COVID-19 surcharge.

By way of an example the cost of fluid repellent masks has increased by over 700% compared to the price paid previously.  We can assure you that once we have used our stock and when the prices reduce for PPE this surcharge will decrease in line with the costs.

What you will notice when you next visit:

  • Additional Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) e.g. gowns, FF2 masks, fit testing, visors
  • COVID-19 questions asked of you (to ensure safety of everyone)
  • Temperature taken
  • Hand sanitising
  • Patient Face Masks
  • Reception screens
  • Additional cleaning of the surgery and practice between each patient

We are also implementing a number of ways to make your visit to the practice as “contactless” as possible, which includes completing many of the forms required e.g Medical History Form, Consent Form in the comfort of your own home via email, they will be compatible with all mobile phones  tablets, and pc/laptops.

Non Aerosol Procedures a charge of £8 per appointment

Aerosol Generating procedures charge of £36 (if 2 nurses required charge will be £51.50) per appointment

We would like to Thank You for your understanding of the need to pass on this surcharge.

The health and safety of you and the dental team are of the highest priority.
