Patient Notice - Revised Safety Procedures:
Public Health England have informed all dental practices that the additional precautionary measures we have been following during the COVID-19 pandemic must remain in place:
Our first priority is always the health and safety of our patients and colleagues and we have endeavoured to keep everyone as safe as possible during these unprecedented times and we would like to take this opportunity to provide an update on our current level of service provision.
- Face coverings are still mandatory in health-care settings and we ask you wear your face covering whilst in the practice to protect one another as much as possible.
- We kindly ask all patients and visitors to disinfect their hands on arrival and departure of the practice to help prevent the spread of Coronavirus and other viruses
- Where possible, please check in at reception using the self check-in screen.
- Social distancing is still in place in all areas around the practice. Please continue to be understanding of those around you.
Booking your appointment: You can make your appointment by telephoning or emailing the practice. Online booking will be available soon.
Attending for your appointment: Please do not arrive more than 5 minutes before your appointment. On arrival for your appointment please enter through the front entrance (when clear of other patients) use the hand sanitiser located on the reception desk before checking in using the self-check-in screen located in the reception area.
PPE: Practice staff may be wearing protective equipment that you are not used to. Please don’t be alarmed, this is normal practice to ensure your safety and that of our staff.
Additional precautions in the practice:
- Air extraction systems in all surgeries.

Late Cancellations and Missed Appointments
We kindly request that if you need to cancel or rebook an appointment you give us at least 24 hours notice. Late cancellations and missed appointments do not allow us time to offer the appointment to other patients who may be in pain.
Missed appointments increase the running costs of the practice and can not be supported leading to increased charges overall. There will be a fee charged in the event of a late cancellation or missed appointment.
