"Yet again I have been blown away by Smile Cliniq. After my filling fell out on Sunday night, I was distraught. But I phoned the Cliniq in the morning and got an appointment for the same morning. Dr Kaher put me at ease, even though I was very anxious, and did an amazing job on my..." - Robyn B

"The service was so good at Smile Cliniq by Dr Sarita Kotecha, I recommended my wife to change dentist. We've been looking for a good dentist since moving to London 2 and 1/2 years ago and the quality we had received from our previous dentist was sub-standard. That all changed at ..." - Greg Jones

"I have a hereditary tendency to get dental cavities, ensuing painful dental treatments, which left me scared of visiting dentists. Now, in my early thirties, I did everything to avoid dental checks. I also gave up on having cavity-free teeth. Two years ago, I was forced to find a..." - Rukmini

"My wife needed to see a dentist on an emergency basis on a Saturday after a bad fall the evening before. We called on Saturday morning and they were able to take us that afternoon. The quality of care, both technically and inter-personally, could not have been better. If we lived..." - Hal N.

At Smile Cliniq, London’s Local Dentist, we are committed to maintaining the highest levels of hygiene and infection control in order to ensure the safety of our patients, team and the wider community. We are adhering to guidelines from FGDP, NHS and the Chief Dental Officer.  We would like to inform you of all that we are doing in order to stay safe during this pandemic:

  1. Appointment booking can be completed online or via telephone
  2. More video consultations are being offered, with a virtual smile webpage so teeth can be looked at more closely.
  3. Medical history, comfort menu, consent & payment, can be completed online where possible
  4. Keeping number of people inside the building as low as possible in order adhere to social distancing rules (patients may be asked to wait until their appointment time before being called into building)
  5. A full COVID risk assessment will be carried out, including telephone triage, before seeing anyone face-to-face
  6. New perspex barriers at reception for staff and patient protection
  7. On entry to the clinic everybody, including patients and staff will be asked to wash their hands and take their temperature
  8. Patients will be asked to rinse with an antiviral mouthwash at the start of each appointment
  9. Our PPE has been upgraded according to guidelines
  10. New Air decontaminating/purifying devices have been installed. (Click the link for test results & literature review)
  11. Zoning our diaries so that exams and other non Aerosol Generating Procedures (non-AGPs) can be carried out at a separate time to Aerosol Generating Procedures (AGPs) in order to minimise risk of transmission.

 

 

Fees

  1. Sadly there has been a hundredfold increase in the cost of PPE, we have tried to absorb as much of the costs as possible, but have still had to increase the cost of certain treatments in line with every other dental practice across the country.

 

The cost increase is not just the PPE but the “fallow time,” where we have been asked to keep the surgery empty for upto an hour to allow air changes.  We have ordered Air purifiers to reduce this.

We have introduced an AGP fee which we are hoping to reduce and hopefully eliminate as the guidelines and risk levels change.  This is only for Aerosol Generating Procedures i.e. anything that needs a dental turbine (drill), ultrasonic scaler.

PPE will include: virus proof gowns, aprons, upgraded virus proof fitted masks (FFP2/3), visors, air purifiers and rubber dams.

AGP fee is currently £40 as we have Air purifiers in the practice (less fallow time is needed) and will be reduced to nothing as the alert levels reduces.
