The BBC announced that English dental practices would re-open on the 8th June 2020.
The government forgot to tell dentists before telling journalists!!!
We are actually beginning the process of training our teams and adapting our practice to allow a safe return to dentistry.
We will not be seeing routine dental 'check-ups' and hygienist visits for a long-time. We will unfortunately need to still cancel your routine appointments for the foreseeable future.
Please avoid ringing reception unless you have a dental problem that needs triaging by a dentist.
'NORMAL' DENTISTRY, will not resume until coronavirus has left the UK. Routine treatment of non-painful teeth and restoration of function, is unlikely to happen in 2020!
The Government released protected PPE stocks for dental practices to purchase on Friday 5th June 2020. Our first order will be delivered when stocks are available, we do not have a date for this.
WE ARE STILL HERE TO HELP
ALL ROUTINE DENTISTRY IS POSTPONED UNTIL FURTHER NOTICE
Contact 320775 if you have a dental problem, between 0900 - 1700, Monday to Friday, we will explain the options for treatment at the present time.
Do not call 111, during normal opening hours, this service is dealing with an enormous volume of calls.
A&E are there for life-threatening emergencies which include: swelling of the face and neck affecting breathing, swallowing & eye movement and serious facial trauma.
