Emergency dental care
To best protect the safety of our colleagues and patients during the current outbreak of COVID-19, we have taken the decision to suspend all but emergency dental care across our dental practices.

That means if you have a routine appointment at a {my}dentist practice in the coming weeks it will unfortunately need to be cancelled and we will contact you to arrange an alternative date.

If you are experiencing a dental emergency, such as severe dental pain, please call your local practice who will advise you what to do.

Your safety, and that of our team is our top priority, so please do not attend practices in person for any reason unless you are asked to do so.
