CoVid-19 Update – August 2020

We know the Covid pandemic is a worrying time for all of us (even with Summer sun the restrictions brought about by 3 months of lockdown have not helped in lifting the spirits of the nation) – However, to put a positive spin on things, we at Bancroft Dentistry have now been back to work for the last 2 months and have put in place various measures to make your visit as safe and comfortable as possible.

Our whole team is now back in and have gotten to grips with the increased PPE that dental treatment now brings and these added measures you might or might not notice:

  • Bespoke desk to ceiling reception screens
  • Antiseptic fogging between patient treatments of each surgery with hypochlorous acid (a weak acid known to kill 99.9% of all viruses and bacteria on contact)
  • Automatic hand gel dispenser on entering reception
  • Air purification after each dental treatment with HEPA filtration to keep surgery air as clean as possible

We want you to know that whilst 2020 may not be a year to remember for a whole host of reasons, I still remain positive that our team here is as upbeat as ever and that we remain as committed to looking after your dental health as we always have been.


We look forward to continuing to do so and look forward to seeing you soon!


Best wishes,

the Bancroft way . . . putting patients first
