Last update: 19th August
We would like to thank all our patients for being so understanding during the last couple of months. We have
worked hard to put measures in place to keep everyone safe at the practice.
Having initially opened on Monday 8th June 2020 for urgent and outstanding treatment. We are now following
up patients who are due their appointments. If you are due an appointment and have not yet been contacted
please help us by ringing 01522 567755 to ensure you are booked in if it is safe for you to do so.
If you have a dental problem or issue, please do not delay contacting us, this will only risk making dental treatments
more complex. Our ethos is the same as it has always been… prevention and minimal
treatment at the first available opportunity.
During the current coronavirus risk level (3), we will continue to adopt a “closed doors” policy. This means that
the practice will only be open to patients who have pre-booked appointments.
Please do not attend the practice unless you have a pre-booked appointment.
This policy will need to be in place until the government reduces the risk level.
The provision of dental treatments continues to occupy increased surgery time, however, we have increased
active surgery hours per week, to help accommodate this. At the current risk level (3) our hygienist services are
operating as non-aerosol generating (i.e. not using the water ultrasonic scaler and other equipment),
however, it remains an important service for our patients.
Please be aware and rest assured that strict PPE and patient pathway measures will be implemented during
your visit. Patients who are required to attend the surgery will be notified of these measures in advance.
We thank you for your patience and understanding.
