Corona Virus Outbreak
***Update of 25/06/20
We thank all of our patients for your support and co-operation through this very difficult time.
Since June 8th, when we were allowed to reopen, we have been treating the priority cases that arose during the lock down period. There are still restrictions on how we practice and we have to limit patient numbers in the building. We are currently in the process of rescheduling appointments in the diary to allow for additional procedures, we hope to speak to you personally very soon. We understand these are worrying times for everyone. Please be assured we are working hard behind the scenes to ensure we continue to provide high levels of care for our patients.
Thank you again for your patience and loyal support
***Update of 03/06/20
NHS England has issued a directive allowing practices to open from 8/6/20 but throughout June we will be running a limited service. We will be contacting patients who we have triaged over recent weeks and will treat priority cases ﬁrst. If you have an existing appointment booked up to the 30th of June please assume that it has been cancelled. We are working our way through the diary to contact you personally. If you have severe pain, swelling, uncontrolled bleeding or serious trauma to the mouth, please phone our emergency number of 01270 767573 . Please follow the instructions on that answerphone and one of our three dentists will return your call. Our reception will not be open during normal working hours, but if you have a dental issue that is not classed as an emergency then please leave a message for the practice, by calling the normal practice number of 01270 765771 and pressing 1 and a member of our team will contact you. Until 8/6/20 only telephone advice and the prescription of painkillers or antibiotics will be available. We can refer on to a Local Urgent Dental Care service where enhanced cross infection and personal protection equipment is available. There is still a very significant limit on what we can do. We would like to thank you for your continued patience at this time.
Until we receive further advice from the Chief Dental Officer, we are unable to open the practice.
If you have a non-urgent dental issue and have not contacted us using our emergency number, please could you email us with your personal details and a description of your problem.
This will enable us to triage you, and as soon as we are open, we will contact you with an appointment.
