Welcome to {my}dentist, High Street, Berkhamsted Dentist located in Berkhamsted

DENTAL CARE DURING COVID-19

Open as normal

Patient information

Our practices are open for NHS and private dental treatments and we are continuing to see patients in order of their need to see a dentist. Should you have a new dental problem please call us as we are speaking to patients on the phone first to offer help and advice, and book in appointments if the dentist needs to see you face-to-face. There are still fewer appointments available due to the protective measures in place, so we apologise if you need to wait to see a dentist. Please do not attend the practice in person unless we ask you to do so.

Protective measures in practice

Our first priority is always the wellbeing of our patients and colleagues. Please make sure to wear a face covering if attending an appointment at one of our dental practices, attend alone where possible, and arrive on time for your appointment. Do not attend if you or anyone you live with has any symptoms of Covid-19, has tested positive for Covid-19 or has been asked to self-isolate by NHS Track & Trace or your school.

Please make sure to read our safety information ahead of your next visit

What our patients say

  • NHS Choices 5 out of 5

    "From the reception staff to my individual dentist I have had nothing but a professional, helpful and quality service. Where reasonably urgent treatment is needed (fractured tooth / loss of a filling) I have always been able to see a dentist within a few hours and treatment provided right away or within a couple of days. Similar satisfaction is echoed by my family"

    "I am always happy with the treatment I receive from my dentist. However, on this occasion she was outstanding. I had fallen in the road, hurrying to catch a train for a day out with friends and damaged both front teeth. I rang My Dentist on the train. Receptionist so kind and sympathetic and gave me appointment for the next day. I expected to just have the rough edges filed down as a temporary measure but half an hour later my teeth had been filed and filled and were as good as new. X ray taken to check the teeth. I was so delighted. I had no idea treatments like this existed on the NHS. . I was imagining crowns and tortuous procedures but this was so simple and I didn’t feel a thing. I am not the bravest of patients and my mouth is so small. Dentist so calm and reassuring. She was amazing. The whole team are."
