"Impressed with Dental care"
Posted by SLOJE (as ),
I was referred by my own dentist to Stobhill Dental with a fractured tooth that I have been managing myself during the pandemic. I received a call from the dentist at the hospital who did a quick but concise interview over the phone and offered me a same day appointment taking into account my own personal circumstances.
On attending the hospital, I observed excellent infection control practises from the front door right up to the dental unit where physical distancing had clearly been planned carefully. The very friendly receptionist offered me a mask on my arrival and went on to demonstrate patience and empathy whilst answering phone calls from frustrated patients. I was called by the nurse into the room and asked to clean my hands with alcohol gel before sitting down. My consultation was quick and I felt very safe. I was very impressed with the service I received and just how well healthcare workers are managing the risk and working to keep patients safe.
