Reopening our practices, covered by BBC Breakfast
Last week, Together Dental received the welcome news that our practices could reopen from today, Monday 8th June. As a company, we have invested heavily in the personal protective equipment and have been busy developing new workflows and processes to maintain social distancing and keep everyone safe.
As we are sure you can appreciate, things might look a bit different in our practices when you next visit us. This morning, our South Benfleet practice had an exciting visit from BBC Breakfast.
BBC Breakfasts’ Dan Johnson dropped by to share with viewers what patients can expect from their dental care and asked us about our back to work strategy.
Dan explained to viewers the level of detail our practices have gone to, to ensure a safe opening. Giving us a tour of the practice, he talked through how each treatment room plays an important role in new process, bumping into our very own talented surgeon, Pola Reza head-to-toe in new PPE gear.
We then heard from Together Dental’s CEO, Sanjay Shah. Sanjay explained that “tons and tons of work went into implementing new policies, new standards and new protocol”. Although we are back in practice, it’s not business as usual yet. Patients will need to bear with us as we establish new and safe ways of working.

As we start to open practices, we are operating a closed-door policy, by appointment only. We will be prioritising those with most urgent dental needs first. Please bear with us. For more information on reopening our practices, please click here.
Thank you to our dental care team in South Benfleet.
