St Helen's Dental Practice

We are very grateful to all our patients for continued patience and support during this very testing time. In line with government and professional guidelines, all dental practices have limited face-to-face contact with patients. The priority remains to keep our community safe by reducing close contact and thereby reducing the overall coronavirus risk. Now that the coronavirus transmission rate is decreasing, dentists hope to be given a date to treat our patients within days or weeks. 

We wish to reassure you that we remain here to help you. The dentists are available to answer the phone and talk to every day, offering advice to patients. If you need any dental health care products please let us know by phone or email and we can post these out to you. We are also taking the opportunity to further enhance the practice and to make sure everything is ready to welcome you back safely and quickly.

We are expecting there to be a gradual phased return to normal dental care with priority initially given to our patients with dental emergencies. We have been keeping good records of everyone that has had a dental visit postponed, and those who have contacted us with urgent dental problem.As the coronavirus risk eases within our community, we plan to offer extra sessions to help everyone  get back on track with their dental care.

COVID-19 is a novel virus and there is still much to learn. In the UK we are pleased that the dental authorities are taking a cautious approach to keep our patients and teams safe. The expert advice driving these decisions is the independent Scientific Advisory Group for Emergencies (SAGE). The restriction allows us to gain knowledge from other countries where dentists have either worked throughout the pandemic or have implemented measures to return to work after the virus transmission has passed a peak.  The whole team at St Helens Dental has been  working tirelessly to gain this knowledge and be certain that we will surpass all recommended safety levels.

Your patient journey with us is likely to be slightly different for a while and you will notice some changes. We have invested in the Radic8 system for clean air in each surgery. These were developed in South Korea after the first Sars outbreak in 2002 and are used extensively in the Far East to remove bacteria and viruses from clinical areas. There is a lot of  extra Personal Protective Equipment (PPE), non-contact infrared thermometers, and we will be encouraging remote payment and video consultation software. These measures will give you and our team extra confidence as we return in the coming weeks. Dentistry does have a great safety record and we will adapt to additional measures easily. The same friendly faces will be here to help and guide you through the ‘new normal’.

We really look forward to being able to see everyone again in the near future!

Headaches, temporomandibular joint disfunction (TMD). In some cases, headaches can be of dental origin. All our dentists have completed an advanced course on Occlusal Equilibration. This looks at how your teeth bite together – if there is a problem with how your teeth meet you can get pain, clicking, headaches or tooth wear. If you suffer from any of these symptoms we can help. About a quarter of headaches may be caused by teeth that don’t meet together properly.
