Since we opened up on 1 June we have been working hard to make the patient journey as safe as possible. The close down of the practice 10 weeks earlier came at a strange time. We have increased our staff by 50% in the last 18 months. We were joined by Dr Devesh Shellat in June and by Georgina in August 2020. Dr Dev is a #Specialist Orthodontist who has fitted in with our practice ethos of striving to do the best work for our patients. He is offering #Invisalign, #Fixed appliance treatments, #Lingual #Orthodontics. He has a passion for working with your specific needs.
Our expansion means that we can start treatment very quickly. Our private waiting time has come down from 6 weeks to around a week.
We are now entering a phase of updating the practice and will be putting doorways between the two buildings. The external of the building is to be re-rendered. We will landscape the outside to improve the car parking. One of our surgeries downstairs will be updated, as well as the reception and hallway areas. This is part of an overall strategy to improve the level of our offering. We are developing new technologies as they become useful in the future.
For the last 18 months we have been developing the digital technologies and now have the facility to do some rather innovative things with our 3d printer. We are able to do #smile predications, virtual set ups to communicate with our laboratory locally, as well as in Germany, Italy and the US.
Although we are striving to improve the building that we are working in, we understand that there might be some disruptions at some stage. We are working with teams who are able to restore buildings which are functioning, so we will let you know if there are any changes that are important to know about.
The Team at One Devonshire Place.
