We Are Now Open!!

June 27, 2020
We are now open and seeing emergency patients!

Here are some of our team in our “enhanced” PPE - can you recognise who we are?
We will be contacting you to let you know when you can be seen and we are still available for advice on home help for your braces throughout this period. Remember, email is the best way to contact us - info@theorthodonticclinic.co.uk
If you are a new patient to the practice and are interested in treatment or want to know more, please do also contact us, we’re happy to help and carry out virtual consultations.
Welcome back to TOC !

Opening After Lockdown

June 20, 2020
The Orthodontic Clinic - opening after lockdown
With the recent announcement from Nicola Sturgeon, dental practices in Scotland are now allowed to reopen for urgent cases ‪on Monday 22nd June‬.
We're delighted to be able to open on Monday, but during this initial phase, we have been given very strict restrictions by the government on the number of patients that we will be allowed to see.
This has been capped at 10 patients per day for each practice until further notice. We are also only allowed to see emergency cases for now - “those patients that have broken or damaged appliances causing pain that cannot be managed by advice alone” (British Orthodontic Society).
As we return to work, please be understanding of the fact that there is a large backlog of patients that we need to catch up with.
Throughout lockdown, we have recorded all patients that have had their appointments cancelled as well as those that have contacted with orthodontic emergencies. Emergency patients have been placed on our priority list and they will be the first patients that we will be contacting when we are open, taking into account the type (urgency and risk) of the problem as well as respecting the date order in which these problems have been reported to us.
When we are eventually allowed to, (and after emergency cases have been seen), we will see less urgent cases and then, finally, patients requiring routine care.
We will try our best to see all our patients, as best we can, given the restrictions imposed on us. Thank you for your kind understanding and patience.
We will be contacting all our patients in due course so please simply await an email or text message. We will only have skeleton staff working so our phone lines will not be manned regularly and email remains the best form of contact for now. If you need to speak to us, please email us, leaving your number and one of our team will call you back.
Thank you and we look forward to seeing you back at TOC!

Re-opening Schedule

June 16, 2020
Hello friends and family of TOC! Hope you are all doing well?!
In terms of us re-opening, we are eagerly waiting and fully prepared to go when we are given the green light. Dental practices in England were allowed to reopen from Monday, 8 June, but in Scotland, we are still awaiting guidance from our Chief Dental Officer - it seems likely that this could be very soon.
We'll know more at the end of this week and we will certainly let you know.
Please do make sure that we have up to date contact details for you so that we can contact you easily to schedule your new appointments.
The ways we will likely do this is via email or SMS text. Email us at info@theorthodonticclinic.co.uk to let us know your contact details, most importantly include your mobile phone number. In this way we can keep you fully updated.
We are also awaiting clarification on the type of procedures that we will be able to carry out and on the number of patients that we will be allowed to see when we re-open; please rest reassured that we are checking the updates daily on this.
We will try our best to see all our patients in a timely fashion, as best we can. Please be understanding that there is a large backlog of patients to see and we will need to start with the emergency cases first as priority before the routine ones. We are so appreciative of your kind patience with this.
Can't wait to give you all some good news soon and see you all hopefully soon too!
Thank you so much and watch this space!

Protective Screens

May 19, 2020
We're sharing a few photos with you during this lockdown time to let you know that a few members of our team are still working hard in the clinic (respecting social distancing!), making sure our practice is doing everything we can to protect and look after our patients and team.
Amongst other things, we have ordered protective screens for our reception area, we’re now receiving new PPE - here we are trying it out!
We're also busy looking at our appointment book and triaging our patients to try and schedule you in for when we can re-open.
We miss you!
Please stay safe and keep well.

PPE Protocols

May 19, 2020
Dear patient,
We have been busy preparing our clinic, getting our decontamination and PPE protocols ready so that you can feel confident that you will be returning to a safe environment when we can eventually open back up again.
Our deliveries of new PPE arrived today! We’re making looking after the safety of our team and our patients a priority.
Stay safe!

Better Things Are Coming Our Way

Dear Patients, families and friend!
Our team have joined in a message of togetherness, hope, positivity and to give tremendous thanks to those special people working to keep us safe and keep our country running.

We truly hope that “better things are coming our way”.
Much love, The Orthodontic Clinic

We Remain Closed

May 9, 2020
Dear Patients,
We remain closed at the moment following news of the lockdown extension. You will understand that given the current situation, we are not currently offer face-to-face appointments for either new or our existing patients.
We want you to know however that we are still busy working from home and providing a range of online services including remote consultations and advice via emails using video and photos taken by you on your mobile phones.
For tips on how to take and send great images to us, the British Orthodontic Society has produced a video which is really helpful.
Here’s the link:-
How to take photos / videos for your Orthodontist
If you have any other questions, or are experiencing any problems with your brace, please don't hesitate to contact us and you can do that best by emailing our clinic email address, info@theorthodonticclinic.co.uk
Please know that we are still here for you, even if we can’t see you in person.
Much love to you all and most importantly, we wish you to stay safe and healthy, from the team at The Orthodontic Clinic

Donate £1000 to Care Homes in Aberdeen

May 7, 2020
We have tried unsuccessfully to contact our other 2 winners of our recent competition, Catherine Black and Helen Elphinstone, to hear which charities they would like to choose for our clinic to donate to.
Rather than delay valuable contributions to those who need help now, we have chosen to donate the £1000 to care homes in Aberdeen.
We recognise that these homes have some of the most vulnerable people during this pandemic and we truly hope this can help.
Please stay safe and keep well.

Thank You to Charlene McConnachie

May 2, 2020
Thank you to Charlene McConnachie for giving us the details of the 2 wonderful charities she wanted our clinic to donate to!
She chose Friends of Anchor and Royal Aberdeen Childrens Hospital and we are so happy to be donating £250 to each of these charities.
She was one of 3 people who won our Easter competition, but unfortunately we haven’t managed to get any replies from our other 2 winners despite contacting them.
We have now decided to select another 2 people instead so that we do not delay valuable contributions to charities who need help now but can start giving as soon as possible.
- Catherine Black
- Helen Elphinstone
Kindly let us know which charities they wish our clinic us to make further donations to and soon, £500 will be heading their way to each of these charities to be put to good use.
Thank you all for showing your support!
Please stay safe and keep well!

Easter Egg Charity

April 22, 2020
Thank you for all your likes and shares on our Easter egg charity post! We so appreciate it.
The 3 people we have chosen are:-

Charlene McConnachie
Margaret Coull
Richard Pye
We will donate £500 to each of their chosen charities which will go to those who really need help at this time. Thank you again for your kind support!
Let's be kind and grateful to each other
Thank you so much.

COVID-19 Lockdown

April 19, 2020
Dear Patients,
Our practice remains closed following further guidance from the government with the extension of the lockdown due to COVID-19.
Please continue to stay safe and keep well. We miss you all and whilst we need to keep our distance just now, we’re hoping we can get together again soon!
Kind wishes to you and your families, from The Orthodontic Clinic family.

Easter Wishes

April 12, 2020
These are uncertain times for us all. Our TOC family want to send you Easter wishes and hope that you and your families are keeping safe and well.
We have been making Easter eggs at home to make them look like ourselves - each has been hand drawn and decorated by our team.
Thank you to all of those who are still carrying on working to help us get through this period - workers from the NHS, care homes, police, supermarkets, post office, government sector, accountant firms, volunteers, and all the other key workers.
We appreciate all you do. Thank you to everyone else who is also playing their part by staying at home.
THANK YOU!
In these difficult times, we’re all going through challenges, but there are some groups and families that are facing even harder struggles. Our clinic would like to try and help them through this pandemic.
Let's be kind and grateful to each other.
We will select 3 people at random to choose what local cause/ charity you feel needs help right now so that we can donate £500 to each of these. (This will run till next Sunday)

Rainbows in Challenging Times

March 29, 2020
Dear friends and family!
Pictures of rainbows have been appearing in windows across the country as people try to stay positive while locked in their homes during the coronavirus outbreak.
Many of the posters have been drawn or painted by children, while other messages of support for the NHS have also appeared.
Rainbows in these challenging times are a reminder that storms don’t last forever and act as a symbol of peace and hope for us all.
They serve to remind us that there is hope and light to follow even after dark times.
Thank you again to all the people out there still working to keep the country going, especially helping affected people, the key workers. These are the doctors and nurses, and all who have jobs that help everyone stay safe and able to stock their homes - like police men and women or supermarket workers, bin men, posties, delivery drivers and so on.
Thank you from the bottom of our hearts.
Stay safe, be kind and keep well everyone!

Thank You

March 28, 2020
We want to acknowledge and say a massive thank you to all the people who are still out working to help tackle coronavirus.
They're helping people out in all sorts of ways.
There are doctors, nurses, teachers, volunteers, and delivery drivers, all working hard to make sure people are looked after, vital supplies are delivered to shops, and things can run smoothly for everyone doing their bit by staying at home.
THANK YOU!
Let’s be kind and grateful to each other.
Thank you so much.

COVID-19 Update: 23/3/20

March 23, 2020
Following urgent and clear government direction to reduce the spread of this virus, our clinic is now closed.
All scheduled orthodontic appointments have been cancelled and no patients are being seen until further notice.
We will be available to offer advice for any orthodontic emergencies via email at info@theorthodonticclinic.co.uk.
One of our team will respond within 24-48 hours.
Please do not call our phone lines for advice as the lines will be unmanned and your message will not be picked up.
Do keep checking our website and Facebook page for any updates and please share this post. Thank you.
Stay safe, stay at home.

COVID-19 Important Information

March 23, 2020
After advice from the BDA (British Dental Association) last week on restricting aerosol generating procedures in dentistry, we had taken steps to scale back many of the orthodontic procedures that we carry out.
In their most recent update regarding COVID-19, the BDA and BOS (British Orthodontic Society) consider that at the present time, the risk to health of patients and the whole orthodontic team when carrying out routine orthodontic treatment is great and therefore all orthodontic practices should be closed to all patients unless they require emergency help with their orthodontic appliance(s).
The health and safety of our patients and team is our top priority.
We are taking this advice very seriously and are acting with extreme caution to protect the health of our patients, staff and our clinic.
We have taken the decision to close our practice to any routine patients and at this time are only seeing patients for orthodontic emergencies.
If your orthodontic problem is not causing any pain or discomfort, then we would discourage you from coming into our clinic and do your best to deal with a sharp wire/ bracket with orthodontic wax where possible.
If your brace has broken and you are unsure what to do, you may seek advice from our clinical team via email at info@theorthodonticclinic.co.uk or have a look at our website under FAQs and Troubleshooting for how to deal with common orthodontic problems.
Thank you for your understanding in these difficult times. Let’s stay positive and stay safe together.
Dr Lisa Currie and all the team at The Orthodontic Clinic

COVID-19 Important Information

March 19, 2020
Dear TOC Patients and Friends,
We have important information regarding COVID-19.
Patients in the 'at risk' groups as previously described, including over 70s, pregnant women or anyone with serious health conditions should not attend our clinic.
Please do not attend also if you have any cold or flu symptoms such as a cough or fever or live with anyone who has these symptoms.
NHS Scotland and the British Dental Association have now advised that in an effort to reduce the spread of COVID-19, dentists should not use drills or scalers unless in the event of a dental emergency as these produce aerosols which put dental teams and patients at risk.
This means unfortunately that we are unable to see any patients for brace removal or fixed retainer removal. We understand how disappointing this will be for you (and us) but we of course must follow these guidelines and take the advice being given.
Please also realise that updates are happening very quickly in a rapidly changing situation so these recommendations will change in time.
We are still carrying out orthodontic examinations for new patients and fitting braces and replacement plastic retainers but some other treatments may not be carried out at this time.
We are having to cancel a number of appointments in accordance with these guidelines. Some of you will already have been contacted by us to inform of cancellations of your upcoming appointments and we are sorry for that.
We hope to reschedule your appointments as soon as we can but this will depend on when the restrictions on dentists’ activity has been lifted by the government and ultimately the situation with Coronavirus.
If you are unsure whether to attend the clinic and wish to check whether to cancel/ reschedule your appointment, please do contact us - the best way to this is is via email to info@theorthodonticclinic.co.uk as our phone lines~* at this time*~ are extremely busy at this time.
Thank you for your patience and understanding and here’s hoping this difficult time will pass soon. Meanwhile, take care everyone and stay safe.
Dr Lisa Currie and all the team at The Orthodontic Clinic
Please share this information. Many thanks!

COVID-19

March 14, 2020
Dear TOC Patients and friends,
In these uncertain times, we wanted to you update you on the steps The Orthodontic Clinic are taking to help minimise the spread of COVID-19.
We are continuing to follow and monitor official guidance from the UK Government and Health Protection Scotland carefully.
The safety of our patients and team members remains our highest priority. We take pride in maintaining high standards of cleanliness and hygiene. In response to the coronavirus, we have taken additional measures to make our cleaning and hygiene protocols even more rigorous:
-Our clinical and cleaning teams are receiving ongoing briefings on prevention and enhanced cleaning protocols with the emphasis on hand hygiene and surface decontamination.
- We have increased the frequency of cleaning of high contact point areas (including reception area and waiting room, door handles, toilets, etc.) and have continued the use of hospital-grade disinfectant.
- Providing antibacterial hand sanitisers to patients.
- Working together with the British Dental Association and NHS Grampian regarding evolving local health protocols for dentistry.
We ask anybody attending our clinic to consider carefully any potential risk to others and DO NOT ATTEND OUR CLINIC if you:-
- have a fever, cough and/ or difficulty breathing
- have come into contact with anyone who has been diagnosed as having COVID-19 or who has these symptoms, or who has been advised to self-isolate
If the answer to any of these questions is YES, please call the clinic on 01224 611633 or email info@theorthodonticclinic.co.uk to reschedule your appointment. Please understand that at this time, there may be unusually long wait times on our phone lines, so please be patient.
Our emails will be acknowledged usually within 1-2 working days at this time. Also during this period and for any late cancellations due to limiting the spread of Coronavirus, there will be no late cancellation fees applied (our normal policy of giving 2 working days’ notice will be waived).
Thank you in helping us to combat the spread of COVID-19.

Royal College of Surgeons and Physicians of Glasgow

November 24, 2019
We are so proud of our very own Dr Lisa Currie (Clinical Director of The Orthodontic Clinic) who is now a Fellow of the Royal College of Surgeons and Physicians of Glasgow (RCSP Glasgow).
The graduation ceremony was held on Friday 22nd November at the University of Glasgow. A very proud day indeed...
She is already a Fellow of the Royal College of Surgeons of Edinburgh (Faculty of Dental Surgery) and was awarded this through examination in 2006.
This year, she was honoured to be elected to receive a Fellowship of the Faculty of Dental Surgery (Orthodontics) from the RCPS Glasgow.
Becoming a Fellow is an acknowledgement of an individual's contribution to the dental profession, its standards and practice. It’s truly an honour.
Fellowship of the Faculty of Dental Surgery (FDS) is offered to dental surgeons who, in the opinion of College, have made substantial contributions to their specialty or who are senior members of the dental profession and whose published works and attainments are, in the opinion of the Council, of such distinction as to justify election.

British Dental Association Group of Dundee and Perth

October 3, 2019
Dr Lisa Currie was invited by the Dean of the Royal College of Physicians and Surgeons of Glasgow, Professor Graham Ogden, to speak for the British Dental Association Group of Dundee and Perth last night.
Dundee University is Lisa's alma mater, where she graduated in Dentistry with Honours in 1996. The lecture was given to an audience of both hospital and general dentists and was titled "The management of snoring and mild sleep apnoea - a dental perspective."
Lisa has carried out a Masters research degree in this subject and it is a field of dentistry that she has a special interest in.
She spoke about the role of dentists in screening and managing these types of patients and the various oral appliances that can be used to treat the condition.
Approximately 50 people attended and it was a real honour to be invited to speak at the University of Dundee where she graduated 23 years ago.
The Orthodontic Clinic provides anti-snoring treatment and both Dr Currie and Dr Rodolfino are accredited practitioners for the Somnowell appliance.

Our team attended the Scottish Dental Show at Braehead Arena in Glasgow on Friday 26th August.

We have been named winners again - what an absolute honour!
We have just won the award for Best Team in Scotland at The Dentistry Awards (UK) 2018.
The Dentistry Awards is the profession's biggest celebration and awards ceremony, recognising excellence in UK & Irish dentistry for over a decade.
This is our very first win at these U.K. wide awards which were held at the Athena, Leicester on Friday 23rd November.
Whilst all our team couldn’t make it to the awards ceremony, we were fortunate to have Dr Daria Rodolfino (Specialist Orthodontist) and Alvin Wong (Clinic Administrator) attend the glittering evening, representing our clinic and team.
We were all waiting, anticipating the results back home in Aberdeen and for some of us, across the other side of the world!
When we received the fantastic news that we had won Best Team for Scotland, we were just ecstatic! So, so proud of our team and just delighted with this incredible achievement!
It brings us such joy and we feel so thankful that our clinic’s hard work, team spirit, and collective effort has been recognised once again.

Children 1st Charity

November 24, 2017
We feel it’s very important to give back to our local community and so we looked around for local charities to see what we could get involved in. We came across the charity Children 1st and read about the amazing work they do for vulnerable and abused children in Scotland.
Their vision for the future is a happy, healthy, safe and secure for every child and young person in Scotland. At The Orthodontic Clinic, we see and treat so many children and it really struck a chord with us. After learning more about them and seeing some of the work they do, we felt very inspired and wanted to make a contribution to this very worthwhile cause.
We were honoured to have been invited by the charity to the annual Children 1st charity ball. Our directors attended this wonderful evening on 17th November and met some truly great people who work for and contribute to the charity.
The charity celebrated 30 years this year, so it was an even more special occasion. A evening really highlighted the very important work that they do and ways in which everyone and anyone can help.
(Please Twitter) #GiveTheGift or www.givethegift.org.uk
Please do share this and by doing so, we hope more people can help the Children 1st charity. Thank you.
