Welcome to {my}dentist, Marina Terrace, Whitburn Dentist located in Tyne and Wear

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

    "I found the booking process relatively straightforward with helpful reception staff who were able to offer appointments that I could fit into . They have always been very helpful in getting me in. The dentist was professional and I was very pleased with the treatment . I had been having toothache for a while and visited the dentist who put me at ease and explained what the issue was and the treatment was done with explanations along the way. He was able to answer all the questions I had and I felt reassured along the whole process . I am now pain free and was advised on good ways of looking after my teeth that would stop me getting fillings in the future. 10/10 for the girls at reception and 10/10 to my dentist"

    "I have been a patient for over 10 years and recently had to have a bit more work done than normal. My dentist is a very friendly guy who explained all the options available to me. With me not having to have much work done before, I was a little nervous but was soon put at ease and reassured by his positive attitude and high level of expertise. It is a very busy practice but this is unsurprising. I wouldn’t hesitate to wait my turn and would highly recommend this practice."

In 2016 Caroline was delighted to be offered a place to study at Newcastle University. In 2019 she graduated and qualified with a BSc (Hons) in Oral and Dental Health Sciences.
