Following the easing of restrictions on 19th July we are updating our guide to how dental visits will operate. Take a moment to read this information and if you have any questions about your visit then please do contact us through the website or by phone and we will be happy to answer them.

Please do note that face coverings are still required in healthcare settings after July 19th.

If you or anyone in your household has any of the symptoms of Covid-19/Coronavirus or has had them in the last 14 days, please let us know as soon as you can; do not attend your appointment and follow the government guidelines around self-isolation.

Your Dental Visit

  • You will receive a reminder in the run-up to your appointment. Please contact us if you need to rearrange; this is no problem as long as you let us know!
  • Please update your medical history in the 24 hours leading up to your visit using the link to our website form.
  • Although our reception and waiting room are open, space is restricted and social distancing may not always be possible.
  • Therefore wherever possible we would appreciate it if you could continue to arrive alone or only with an essential carer; only at the time of your appointment. We’d also be grateful if you could continue to wait outside or in your car if you can and phone reception to let them know you have arrived.
  • Face coverings remain a requirement within healthcare settings. Please remember to bring one with you. You will still need to wear a face covering in public areas unless exempt.
  • We are able to offer the full range of dental treatments.
  • Regulations around additional PPE and extended surgery cleaning times remains in place, which reduces the number of appointments we can provide each day. Our team are working incredibly hard to reduce the impact of these restrictions, but you may still find that choice of appointments is reduced and waits for appointments are increased a little as a result.
