Dental care and coronavirus

December 15 2020

The effects of dental care and coronavirus has hit the industry hard. And recent statistics show over 7 in 10 practices are now operating at less than half their pre-pandemic capacity. Not only this, but patients are also at risk of developing serious problems if left untreated due to lockdown. Dentists have urged patients not to let their check-ups lapse as early detection and awareness are key. The BDA (British Dental Association) has reported more than 19 million missed courses of treatment due to the restrictions of covid19. In response, the government has pushed the mantra ‘build back better’, but now it’s time to apply the same logic to dental services. However, for many private dental practices, adapting to these changes has driven a more efficient, and futureproof way of working.

The way forward for dentistry

Covid19 has not only changed the course of history, but it’s also changed the way we live our every day lives. For the most part it’s been extremely challenging, but there have been some positive outcomes. Within the world of dentistry, private practices have overcome challenges by using state of the art technology and increased patient interaction. Firstly, there is the selfie upload. Here, you can simply upload a few photos of your teeth and receive your dental report without even leaving your home. In addition to this, video consultations are also on the rise. Our cosmetic dentists can now offer complementary video consultations from the comfort of your own home, without any financial commitment.

Award winning dentists

There’s no doubt dental care and coronavirus has had a huge effect on the dentistry industry. However, here at Newmarket Road Dental Clinic we are taking all the necessary precautions to keep all our patients safe. We are committed to providing the highest quality dental care from award winning dentists. Our team of professionals ensure our patients receive a exceptional dental experience whenever they step through our doors.
