Update 1st November 2020:
LLOC stays open for patients in November lockdown
A new lockdown has been announced for England starting from Thursday November 5 but we remain open and will continue to provide treatment using the same precautions that have been in place since June.
We have always maintained high standards of cross infection control and the measures that we introduced in June provide an additional layer to ensure optimum safety. These precautions will be strictly maintained for the foreseeable future.
Update 29 May 2020:
We are reopening on June 8th! 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 has felt very strange.
We are now 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 is being 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. From June 8th, 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 (firstname.lastname@example.org) and he will respond to you and organise a time to speak, either on the phone, or via FaceTime or Skype.
We look forward to welcoming you back to The London Lingual Orthodontic Clinic.
