Covid19 - how it affects your dental treatment

OUR PRACTICE WILL REOPEN on the 4th May 2020.

The road ahead

We have always followed a world class infection control protocol at our practice. All our instruments are thoroughly washed and then placed in a cold sterile bath for the recommended period. Heat sterilisation is then carried out afterwards with a top of the range autoclave.

  • All staff will wear PPE at all times.
  • From now onward extra time will be allocated at the end of each appointment to allow for extra stringent infection control implementation.
  • Each staff member will be allocated a designated clinical zone which they are held responsible and accountable for.
  • There will be a designated area for patients to leave their personal belongings during treatment.
  • All communal areas ( door knobs , pay point etc. ) will be regularly disinfected.
  • Hand sanitizer will be available in all surgeries , reception area and bathroom. Please make use of these.
  • Unfortunately we will no longer be able to have magazines in the waiting room - please bring your own.

We would like to wish all our patients good health and peace during these trying times ahead.

From all the staff at Molteno Road Dental Practice.

We as general dentists are in the unique position in that we can orchestrate and manage multidisciplinary cases.

Knowing when to refer to the appropriate specialist and through open and clear communication with our patient , we can be assured of the desired end result.

The case below is a good example of such teamwork..

We always start with the end result in mind, here we carefully planned the smile digitally and did a “dress rehearsal” or mock up to ensure we are on the right track regarding the functionality and aesthetics of our treatment plan.

Once we were happy with this we were ready to commence with the next treatment phase.
Before & After Aesthetic Crown Lengthening ProcedureOur patient was referred to a Periodontist who did a minor procedure to the gum in order to lengthen the appearance of the teeth, it is called an “aesthetic crown” lengthening procedure.
Before & After Ceramic Veneers Bonding After a short healing period we bonded the beautifully crafted ceramic veneers in place.

The dental technician is also a specialist in his own right !
Before & After Maxillofacial Surgeon TreatmentThe last phase of treatment involves the Maxillofacial Surgeon who expertly corrected the jaw relationships and enhances the facial aesthetics even further.
