Updated Wednesday 27 May 2020:
It’s difficult to describe how much we look forward to welcoming you back here. During 15 years the clinic hasn’t closed for more than a few days at a time. Two months of closure is feeling very strange. We can only imagine what it’s like for you.
We are still closed this week as we await guidance on when we are permitted to re-open. In the meantime, we are busy preparing for the clinic to reopen. As you will appreciate, it’s not possible to carry out treatment and follow social distancing guidelines so everything has to be carefully thought through to guarantee maximum possible safety.
Dentistry is categorised as a high risk profession due to the water involved in some procedures which creates a spray, or aerosol. In orthodontics, the majority of appointments are not high risk but when we place and remove braces dentistry, we use water and an aerosol is created. We already carry out strict cross infection control procedures here to keep our patients safe. Post pandemic, we will go further. Please note some of the changes that we are planning:
Meanwhile, Dr Chatoo continues to be available to existing patients and to anyone interested in future treatment. If you need to speak to him, please email him directly (email@example.com) and he will respond to you and organise a time to speak, either on the phone, or via FaceTime or Skype.
We hope to write soon and let you know when we can open our doors. We look forward to welcoming you back to The London Lingual Orthodontic Clinic.
