How will COVID19 effect treating dentally fearful patients?

Hang in there, @Thephilsblogbar. I know this uncertainty is difficult, but you certainly won't get dentures as a result of one missed cleaning. Hope you will get a new appointment soon.
Got an appointment sorted, 4th July yes it's Saturday and have to go private this time instead of NHS, my mim is having the tooth out which was cracked on Monday

We both had a health questionnaire check about covid19.

I may have switched to 4-6 months cleanings now, certainly not having yearly checkups, a lot can happen to teeth in a year, I know teeth don't rot and decay overnight badly.
