 DORSET dentists are struggling with a backlog of patients, built up over the past three months.

Dental practices have been closed since the lockdown in late March and were only recently given clearance to reopen on June 8.

The three-month period of closure built up a backlog of patients whose issues were not severe enough to warrant referral to an urgent dental centre.

Dental services are reopening under strict safety guidelines to ensure the safety of both staff and patients.

The standard operating procedure was released by the Chief Dental Officer just days before reopening, so only those who had already taken the risk of ordering PPE were prepared to open on time.

Dianna Dumitriu, owner of Park Street Dental Practice in Weymouth, said: "There is a huge backlog of patients from the last three months, with all sorts of problems.

"We were unsure about when we were going to be able to reopen. It's been difficult to fit people in as we've had so many calls.

"There a lot of rules at the moment, we need to wear the protective equipment and need to make sure the rooms are thoroughly cleaned in between patients. It's all quite complicated.”


Some of the safety measures being taken include, dentists and assistants wearing a significant amount of PPE, reducing the amount of people in the premises at one time, having protective screens and testing patients’ temperature on arrival.

Mrs Dumitriu continued: "There was a lot of guesswork before opening, luckily we had already begun to prepare before we were able to reopen so we was ready quite quickly. Those of us who took a chance to stock protective equipment before we knew exactly what we needed we able to open quickly but others weren't. We weren’t given much notice.

"I've had to prioritise my own patients, unfortunately I wasn't able to accept any new patients. We have also prioritised the most urgent cases, if they were in a lot of pain we would try to see them as quickly as possible.

"We are trying to arrange the appointments as best we can, sometimes we even have to rearrange the day before but people have been very understanding and helpful."










Our clinic functions with Covid-19 standard operating procedure and personal protection equipment in accordance with Public Health England standards.We can provide full range of treatments.

COVID-19 Safety measures in our practice. If you'd like an appointment please call 01305783961 rather than coming in as we try to restrict the number of people in the premises at one time.



UPDATE 22/05/2020





The staff have been fit tested with the highly protective FFP3 masks in preparation for the reopening.






We are looking forward to be able to reopen soon  for routine treatment under the new


coronavirus standard operating procedure.



We are operating a triage and advice over the phone service only at the moment. If you have an urgent dental condition , please call 01305783961 weekdays from 9:00 to 17:00


COVID-19 is a flu like condition that affects the lungs in particular and can have serious or fatal consequences. It caused by a newly emerged virus called CORONAVIRUS.


The authorities have recognised the COVID-19 epidemic as a serious crisis in our society and have imposed strict rules.


CORONAVIRUS spreads easily from person to person in close contact by saliva droplets and also by contaminated objects.

Having dental treatment poses a great risk of transmission between pacient and dentist and dental nurse  due to close proximity but also because drilling inside your mouth creates aerosols which help the virus spread even faster and easier.

Therefore it has emerged that special protection measures are necessary to prevent transmission.

There is a real shortage of adequate personal protection equipment, so the really severe cases are prioritised for treatment.


We are sorry to dissapoint some of you but we feel it is important to do the very best we can ,under the light of guidance available , to keep everyone safe.


We hope it will not be long before things go back to normal and we can welcome all of you back! 


It is important to keep social distancing for the time beeing to slow the spread of the coronavirus.
