Covid 19 is affecting all our lives in a way we could not have contemplated even 2 weeks ago. We have delayed writing to you in relation to any change in arrangements at the Practice simply because things are changing daily, and at times hourly.
As of today, Thursday 26th March 2020 (Last Updated), we are moving to see patients for Emergency treatment only. If there are any further changes, we will update this web page accordingly.
We’re currently operating a limited diary from 10am to 1pm, Monday to Friday and Emergency Dentist Appointments will be triaged via a Telephone Consultation only. Please Call 01908 506199.
PLEASE DO NOT ATTEND THE PRACTICE IF YOU HAVE OR HAVE HAD SYMPTOMS OF COVID 19. If you do, you will be asked to leave immediately
NHS Commissioners, our regulator and the Chief Dental Officer still only advise a reduction in the number of patients we see and to not provide certain treatments. However our Professional body, the British Dental Association (BDA) backs the position we are adopting, especially due to the shortage of personal protective equipment (PPE) we are currently experiencing.
We hope you can understand our decision as we support social distancing for our teams and our patients.
All appointments are now cancelled until further notice.
Please contact the practice by TELEPHONE ONLY if:-
- You require emergency treatment
- You need advice or reassurance
- You need a treatment completing such as a crown or denture fit – your original appointment will be cancelled but we will try to accommodate completing your treatment by arrangement depending on the level of urgency.
- Separate arrangements are being made on a case by case basis for Orthodontic and Implant patients and you will be contacted directly by the practice.
Our senior dental team will be available to give telephone advice if your query cannot be managed by our reception team – you will be called back as soon as possible.
In the interests of safety, OUR DOOR WILL BE LOCKED and our ONLINE BOOKING SERVICE HAS BEEN DEACTIVATED – PLEASE RING THE PRACTICE ON 01908 506199 FOR ADVICE OR AN APPOINTMENT – Alternatively, please Request A Call Back using the following form:
We are working to keep our team together and will do all we can to continue your treatment when this situation is over.
In the meantime please follow Government advice on social distancing and for more information, please visit the Government Coronavirus web page.
Do stay safe and our very best wishes to you and your family in these difficult times.
