At the end of 2020 we looked back thinking what a roller coaster of a year it was and I’m sure for many 2021 has been no different.
The fact that we were able to stay open in lockdown 2.0 meant a huge amount to us and we were so grateful to those who were happy to work around the restrictions and juggling of appointments.
With everyone starting to adapt to the new norm we could slowly start to see that there was light at the end of the tunnel. This was such important news as it meant we could begin to welcome back more patients to the practice.
The days were becoming longer and with summer on the horizon the vaccine roll out was in full swing. Overall, the outlook was positive. Trips were starting to be planned, whether abroad or everyone’s new favourite term, on a ‘staycation’. One of the more encouraging outcomes of this pandemic I feel has been that people are wanting to explore our own beautiful country more than ever and I think that we now want less ‘stuff’ and more experiences and time with loved ones.
I, myself managed to go and discover some of Scotland’s idyllic scenery back in June. We climbed mountains, went kayaking and experienced the city life in Edinburgh. This is something that certainly wouldn’t have been top of my list had the travelling restrictions not been in place but turned out to be one of my best trips to date.
I think I can speak for many of us that we have used these odd times to reflect on what paths we want to take. Here are Moreton Dental we have had a slight change of guard with some older faces leaving but a whole new reception team in myself, Laura and Simon and our new apprentice nurse Lily who has come to us straight from school. You can read all of our bio’s on the website.
So sadly, as we head towards the end of 2021 familiar terms are starting to appear again in the media. With the new variant on the loose we can certainly sense that everyone is being more cautious and quite rightly so. We want to continue to reassure you all that the Moreton Team are here for you and taking every precaution to keep you and our wider community as safe as we possibly can.
On that note we would like to wish you all a very happy and safe Christmas and New Year and look forward to seeing you all in what we can all only hope is a slightly less chaotic 2022.
