Dental Treatment and COVID-19 - PLEASE READ

Dear Patients,

On 25th March 2020 Sara Hurley (Chief Dental Officer England) and Matt Neligan (Director of Primary Care and System transformation) released their latest statement on the rapidly developing COVID-19 pandemic.

We would like to update you on how this will affect our service provision at Dentalcare Group. The guidance is clear that all routine, non-urgent dental care, including orthodontic treatments must be deferred until advised otherwise. We are still here to support you and your dental needs through this unprecedented time.

We want to take this opportunity to reassure all our patients that we take the spread of the COVID-19 in the UK very seriously. The health and safety of our patients, staff and visitors to our dental practice is our main priority.

Here at Dentalcare Group we will be providing all our patients with a remote service during normal working hours. Our dentists will perform telephone triaging for: advice; analgesia; and antimicrobials (if appropriate) . We will not be able to see you at the practice.

If it is not possible to manage your symptoms remotely, you will have to be referred to a Local Urgent Dental Care Centre. Details of these are currently being established in our area and we will update you as soon as we have further information.

We will use our best professional judgement in the triaging process and work collaboratively with our Local Urgent Care system, possibly volunteering our expertise where necessary to help meet the demands imposed on this new emergency service.

Stay safe.

Dentalcare Group Team

Orthodontic Reception or Management Jobs

Can you picture yourself in an Orthodontic admin role?

Ever fancied yourself as a receptionist or Orthodontic Patient Coordinator?

Fortunately, we have a variety of positions available here at within the Dentalcare Group that should more than pique your interest.

An exciting and involved role

Our Orthodontic Patient Coordinator role involves the provision of liaison services to new patients entering our practices at Dentalcare Group. You’ll also be responsible for enhancing case acceptance for all services, fostering referrals and enhancing new patient flow through daily activities and specific programmes. Of course, your responsibilities are much more varied than that, but our description should give you a flavour for this exciting and involved role.

Other positions are available, too, including Orthodontic Support Manager, Orthodontic Coordinator, Orthodontic Lead Receptionist, and Orthodontic Nurse. Whether you’re working front of house or behind the scenes, you’ll be responsible for upholding exceptional standards of care across the practice.

Efficient day-to-day management

Orthodontic Nurses can also apply for our Orthodontist Nurse positions, which will see you ensuring the efficient day-to-day management of the surgery to provide the highest quality care to patients. After all, new and existing patients may well be feeling nervous about their appointment, and it falls under your remit to help them feel more at ease.

If the Orthodontic Nurse role isn’t the right position for you, how about a job as an Orthodontist Lead Nurse or Orthodontic Therapist? If you’re the fortunate candidate to take on the Orthodontic Therapist role, you’ll keep the clinical areas and all equipment and instruments clean, tidy and sterile as appropriate – and according to the practice’s health and safety and infection control procedures and manufacturers’ instructions. You’ll take the utmost pride in your work and you’ll be joining a team of experienced orthodontists who will make you feel more than welcome.

In the role, you’ll ensure all nurses are appropriately dressed for the clinical environment, and make sure stock is ordered and dispatched to surgeries on a weekly basis.
