The BSPD’s Executive Committee is aware of the uncertainty and worry that the Novel Coronavirus outbreak is causing everyone. We also know that we are all working hard to protect patients, colleagues, family members and friends both in the care we deliver to our patients, and by playing our part in minimising the spread of the virus. Keeping abreast of information is challenging; advice changes on a daily basis and the ever-increasing volume of information means it can be difficult to discern fact from fiction. We’ve put together a small list of reliable resources for the dental team, and our patients and their families, which we hope are useful.

Please don’t hesitate to get in touch if we can help. Any contact should be through our administrator Neil Sutcliffe at
