Following the latest published guidelines, all medical & dental procedures have been divided into two main categories; non-aerosol generating vs. aerosol generating procedures. We have therefore listed the most common procedures at College Street Dental Centre for each category in the table below.
Due to the huge rise in costs of normal & enhanced PPE, additional implemented safety measures and no funding from the government, we have no choice but to levy a temporary charge for these items. These new charges will apply while UK Corona Alert Level remains between 2-5. However, it would not apply to patients who were mid-treatment prior to the lockdown. Additionally, our Denplan patients would benefit from a lower charge.
The charges have been based on the comparison table below, which gives an overview of some of the added measures and costs involved in implementing them.
