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 thank you for all your help that I feel very grateful of you all. But it was mainly on the price of the products you've got for me to use. That I find too expensive. Plus I measured the wire of the Airfloss too short. So I'll have to make it a stand, with a piece of hard wood, unless you have a longer wire for it. Otherwise I'll bring it back & buy the electric toothbrush, bcz I still have not charged it"
