We are now providing almost the full range of our services again with all the necessary precautions and procedures in place.

We are open throughout lockdown subject to government guidance.

We kindly ask all patients NOT to attend the Practice without a pre- booked appointment.

You might find a few of our regular procedures changed due to current circumstances, including your temperature being checked upon arrival by our friendly reception staff member.

On your first contact you will be sent a Medical and COVID-19 questionnaire, we kindly ask that you fill this out and return it to us either via email, in the post or bring it with you on the day of your appointment. Please arrive a few minutes prior to your appointment and wear a face mask at all times until you are in the dental chair. We also ask that you sanitise your hands immediately upon arrival.

Please bring minimal belongings into the Practice, we suggest that you just bring along necessary items that you can fit in your pockets.

We ask that you don’t touch any surfaces unnecessarily whilst in the Practice.

We do have toilet facilities, but kindly ask that you refrain from using them if possible.
