COVID-19 Information

Emergency advice is available

7 days a week

During the COVID-19 pandemic situation all dental practices are unable to provide any treatments.

We are still able to advise on your best course of action, and can write prescriptions.

Latest update: A decision by the government on 28th May means that we are able to re-open and provide dental treatment safely from the 8th June. We will be initially focussing on emergency patients, and will be open for routine dental treatment as soon as possible. There will be some changes to how dental appointments will be managed in order to ensure maximum safety for patients and staff. We will update this page with more information soon.

Dear Friends,

 

We wanted to write to you all at this difficult time to explain our current position and how we are trying to ensure we can provide the best care possible for our patients.

 

With the COVID-19 outbreak, the world has been turned upside down for all of us, and we are now facing huge challenges in order to make it through this unprecedented international crisis.

 

It has always been our priority to offer excellent dental care in a friendly and empathic environment, but at the moment this is sadly not possible. The decision has been made by the British Dental Association, Local Dental Committee and the government’s Chief Dental Officer that provision of dental care in dental practices must be suspended until further notice.

During this period, we will provide a telephone service only. We can offer advice and issue prescriptions and if necessary, refer you for emergency treatment in a local Urgent Dental Care Centre.

 

By following this advice, we can better protect our patients and staff, reduce the spread of coronavirus, and help reduce the enormous pressures on the health service. By doing this and working together, we can help to save thousands of lives.

 

Please bear with us and understand how frustrating the current situation is for us.

Be assured we are doing all that we can to prioritise the care for our patients at this time and will strive to return to normal service as soon as possible.

 

We are keeping abreast of the latest information and we will update this newsfeed regularly with any new advice.

 

Please take care of yourselves and your families and do please follow all the government guidelines to help reduce the spread of this virus.

 

Yours sincerely,

 

 

Matthew Sica and Hannah Pepper,
