Murray Dental Back Open and Buzzing
Murray Dental Back and Buzzing!!

Lockdown is now over and I am pleased to report that a new look Murray Dental is now up and running again and treating patients as efficiently as the “new normal” allows us to. Like many of you we have survived three months with no income, managed our emergencies and now the telephone won’t stop ringing.

We are working our way through the substantial backlog of referred patients we have on file and have already seen many of your lovely patients thank you.

We would like to reassure our referrers that the safety of your patients and our staff are our top priority. In addition to appropriate PPE we have also looked at the relevant protocols to ensure we operate in the safest manner possible against Covid-19.

Andy doing his bit for dentistry during Covid-19

Over the lockdown period I chose to volunteer in an Urgent Dental Care centre in Milton Keynes. These were designated dental practices that had the protocols and PPE in place to see patients with severe dental emergencies at the time that other practices had been instructed to close. If dentists were unable to manage patients’ problems by remote triaging over the phone, then they would be referred to the Urgent Care centre. We were in an especially privileged position in that our centre was set up to provide aerosol generating procedures, such as drilling, so we could help patients in more ways than simply extracting teeth.

I chose to volunteer because I felt frustrated and idle not being able to help people in desperate situations, and I thought my partner Nicki would probably appreciate me getting out from under her feet for a bit while she tried to work from home. I had also run out of DIY projects, and I’m sure even the cat was longing for a return to the peace and quiet he was used to.

In addition to this, I thought it would be an invaluable opportunity to experience what dentistry is likely to look like for the short-term future. It was useful to learn from the COVID-19 protocols and processes they had perfected though weeks of trial-and-error to help shape those needed at Murray Dental when it was allowed to reopen. It gave me a high dose of job satisfaction to treat patients who were incredibly grateful to be seen.

The Murray dental team keeps growing, say hello to Siobhan

Last week we welcomed Siobhan to the Murray Dental team. We normally like to ease our new nurses in slowly but unfortunately due several members of the nursing team off due to illness, we set her to work straight away.  Siobhan was an absolute star and got stuck right into her nursing duties, working with our hygienist. 

Siobhan enjoys all aspects of nursing  and is always seen with a smile on her face.  She is looking at developing her skill within dental implants and  would like to enroll on radiography course next year.

We all wish Siobhan well  and hope she enjoys working here at the practice for many years to come.
