Coronavirus (COVID-19) information

Thursday 15th July 2021

Safe opening continuing for healthcare

Although COVID restrictions are changing for many this month, for healthcare they are not.

We will continue to follow our high standards in infection control - you must still call first for an appointment and will be brought in after the usual checks and hand hygiene.

You will still need to wear a mask while at the practice.

We are working through our backlog of check-ups from last year, and we are gradually contacting patients as we work through all the appointments delayed by COVID.

Please note: we are not yet taking on new NHS patients. This will follow once we clear our backlog of existing patients.

If you are worried about your appointment please contact us to discuss your concerns and we can always postpone your treatment till a later date.

** Please do not come to the practice without an appointment. **

How do I see my dentist now ?

Please respectfully note that we are operating strictly by appointment only. We will not allow walk-ins due to social distancing measures.

You will need to contact the practice and go through our routine triage procedure. We can be reached by phone, email, or via our website.

When you arrive

Please do not come into the practice until called. Let us know you have arrived by calling, or signal through the window.

You will need to wear a mask at all times while inside the dental practice and only remove your mask at the request of the dental professional.

We will check your temperature and if this is above 37.8C, you will be advised to rebook your treatment and to follow government guidelines. Please do not arrive more than 5 minutes early for an appointment due to social distancing guidelines.

I am due a checkup, will I be deregistered ?

No. If you do not come to the practice for several years, then we will consider deregistering. Nobody who is unable to attend due to the current situation will be deregistered.

 

We apologise for any inconvenience but measures introduced by the UK government and health regulators will result in fewer serious health issues than we would otherwise see. We thank you in advance for your understanding.

Dental Check By One

We support the Dental Check by One initiative which recommends that you register your baby and bring them to their first checkup before their first birthday. This helps get them off to the best start and gets them used to seeing the dentist regularly.

Good morning
You have set up the surgery perfectly. I wasn't worried about coming in and the amount of protection and system in place worked really well. No complaints from me just praise. Thank you.
