Advice on attending for an urgent dental appointment

To reduce the risk to yourself and others, please follow the instructions below

  1. When attending, please park up and wait in your car until you are called by phone
  2. Please do not touch any door handles or shake hands - someone will open the door for you
  3. You will be asked to wear a surgical mask on your way in which we will provide and also use hand gel to rub on your hands
  4. We will only be accepting payment by contactless card payments
  5. Please provide an email address so we can forward a discharge letter to you following your visit
  6. A member of staff will take your temperature when you arrive as this practice is a covid cold site and patients with covid symptoms will be directed to other sites
  7. Consent to treatment will be requested verbally only to avoid unnecessary contact
  8. Please make sure you use the toilet before you attend as we will not be able to provide the facility at the practice
  9. If an interpreter is required, you must book this prior to your appointment. Please email or call us to advise which language you require.
  10. Please attend alone if possible

Our practices will be open for Dental Care from the 8th June 2020.

We will be prioritising vulnerable patients and dental emergencies but will soon be available for routine examinations.

Please call our practice in the morning to book your emergency. We will have limited availability if you call in the afternoon. To comply with infection control requirements during this difficult time, we have limited appointments available due to extended appointment times. Please be patient with us in providing you with a safe service.

Routine treatment, including scale and polishes will not be provided during Covid-19. Please be patient with us in providing a safe service and treatments may need to be booked in for additional appointments rather than being done on the same day.

Please keep checking this site and our answerphone message to keep you up to date with any closures or changes in our service
