Temporary PPE Charges
Temporary PPE Charges
Here at Riverside Dental, we believe in complete transparency. We have spent most of the lockdown period ensuring we have all the necessary Personal Protection Equipment (PPE) to ensure we are compliant with all legislation to keep all our patients and team safe.
Due to the cost of it, we have no option but to pass most of it onto our patients, hopefully only temporarily. We have separated it into 2 levels as advised by our regulatory bodies:
- PPE Level 1: For procedures that do not generate any aerosols (non-AGP’s)
- PPE Level 2: For procedures that do generate aerosols (AGP’s)
PPE Level 1: £3 per appointment
Includes: Enhanced fluid repellant surgical mask for clinician and nurse, splash-proof visors, aprons, new anti-viral cleaning products, mask for reception staff, mask for each patient
PPE Level 2: £14 per appointment
As for Level 1 but also includes Filtering Face Piece 2 or 3 (FFP2/3) enhanced mask, surgical gowns, ant-viral misting solution used to clean down surgery after appointment
If, and when, the additional levels of safety are no longer required the charges will be removed.
We thank you for your understanding at this time
Please note the above charges take into consideration both single-use and re-usable items and the VAT that we have to pay (but cannot charge patients for)
Our location - Norwich Dentist
The practice is in a fantastic location in NR1 and benefits from free parking next door and is conveniently situated along Riverside Walk in between Norwich Station and Norwich City Football Club adjacent to the River Wensum. There are numerous buses that serve the practice with a major bus stop in Riverside Retail Park. For our less-abled patients, there is free parking right outside our front door.
"I brought myself to Dr Sawhney after a bad experience elsewhere involving the removal of a conspicuous tooth resulting in practical concerns and a loss of confidence. I was reassured by the quality of care and advice I received and was able to decide upon a dental implant with full knowledge of the costs and process, including the timescale of six months."
“Dr. Sawhney has been excellent at recommending the correct treatments and ensuring I have had the best service possible. I would recommend Riverside Dental to everyone, especially nervous patients, as the staff could not make you feel more relaxed. I am now more confident in my appearance, which makes a hugh difference!”
“Amazing dental practice who I have already highly recommended to all of my family and friends. Not only are all of the staff so helpful and friendly, but they have transformed my smile. I also recommend the Invisalign treatment as well as having bonding work, as Bim did an outstanding job! Thanks again.”
