Coronavirus (COVID-19)

We would like to inform you that due to the COVID-19 outbreak we are currently unable to work as normal following the latest government guidelines.

This is not a decision we have taken lightly but we feel it is our responsibility to protect you, our valued patients, our team and our families. We have taken the difficult decision to cancel all routine exams, treatments and hygiene appointments.

Please do not arrive at the practice unannounced.

We will be maintaining a telephone service for advice and booking emergency appointments. Dental emergencies include:

  • Severe pain for over 48 hours
  • Facial Swelling
  • Trauma or uncontrolled bleeding

We understand this is inconvenient and it may mean the treatment timelines are extended. We will be able to reconvene normal service once it is safe to do so. If your appointment needs to be postponed, one of the team will be in touch.
