Coronavirus/Covid -19 update

Update 04/2022

We are immensely proud of our staff for their hard work and dedication over the last two years of the pandemic. The world of dentistry has changed and our staff have taken these changes in their stride. The regulations and guidelines that we work under have not changed much from those issued in October 2020 and we are waiting to see if there is an update for Healthcare Settings from the Scottish Government on 21 March 2022.

Please be advised that the safety of our patients and staff is our priority and that any restrictions that are in place are as a result of Scottish Government regulations.

Update 19/07/2021

As of today, Monday 19 July, all of Scotland will be in level 0 for Covid restrictions. There has been little change in the restrictions and regulations in which we work and take this opportunity to remind you that patients and staff must continue to wear face coverings in healthcare settings, including dental practices.

Please help us by following national guidance on Covid regulations and also by using the portal link that is sent to you to complete all forms prior to attendance.
We are proud that we have been able to provide routine dental care to all our patients since October 2020 due to the fantastic efforts of all our staff.

If you want to book your next appointment , please give us a call on 0141 942 6523.

See you soon!

Look after your teeth at Christmas

Christmas is almost upon us, as we eagerly anticipate the arrival of the big day it is important that we remember to look after ourselves and those dependent upon us. It can be all too easy to neglect our oral hygiene at this time of year so please remember that here at Chartwell we are always on hand to offer advice and help to keep your mouth nice and healthy throughout the year. In the meantime here are some top tips to keep on top of your oral hygiene over the festive period.

  1. With Xmas parties and late nights in the offing, it’s important that we do not forget to brush and floss before we get our head down. We find brushing along to our favourite Xmas song helps us brush for the required 2 minutes.
  2. Stuck for a present for your nearest and dearest why not treat them to an electric toothbrush, whilst it’s not the most exciting present you can rest easy in the knowledge the here at Chartwell we recommend an electric toothbrush over a manual one and we also stock them at reception so pop in and ask.
  3. We are not ogres here at Chartwell and enjoy a sweetie as much as anyone but please remember it’s the number of times you eat sweets during the day rather than how much you eat so try to limit your treats to just after mealtimes.
  4. Remember that avoiding sweet treats and replacing them with savoury alternatives is healthier for your teeth, cheese and breadsticks are great replacements and turkey is tooth friendly so long as you avoid the bones.

Finally, everyone at Chartwell would like to thank you for being such great patients throughout the year and wish you a very merry Xmas and happy new year.
