Dundrum Orthodontics have made the decision to temporarily close our clinic due to the risk of covid-19 and do our part to help slow down the spread of the infection. This decision was made to protect patients, staff and families. Below are some questions you might have about your treatment:
Will this delay my treatment?
An important part of successful orthodontic treatment is keeping your appointments. Under the present circumstances, this is not an option. However, our temporary closure should not have too much impact on your overall treatment plan as we will work hard to get your treatment back on track when we reopen. You can help by following some simple directions.
If you have trouble during this time, such as pain, injury or breakage, please contact the practice at 01-296-3638 or 083-896-9996 and we will determine the best course of action for your situation.
Remote consultations for existing patients
Please click into our ‘Remote Consultation’ link on the top of our homepage which will show you how to send a photograph of the problem area. This will allow us to get back to you with the best advice on what to do for you.
You can keep in touch with us by following our Facebook and Instagram accounts. When we have a firm date for resuming, we will contact you with a new appointment.
We look forward to seeing you back in our clinic soon. If you have any concerns, please contact us on the numbers above, or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
Use a mouthguard. If you don’t have one, see if there is one available to purchase in a pharmacy or online and use the remoulding/boiling technique as per instructions on the packaging.
This should be worn evenings/nights until we re-open and new retainers can be made.
