Coronavirus (COVID-19) Notice

The Government recently announced that dentists could reopen from 8th June. For the majority of practices, including ours, this was unreasonably short notice. We reopened to patients from 1 July but are only able to do the most simple treatments at present.

At first, we need to prioritise appointments for people who have been having problems over the last few months as our first priority, and those with outstanding treatment from before lockdown. If you have a scheduled check-up in the near future, it is likely that we will cancel this to free up time for more urgent cases and we hope that you will contact us again in a few months time to reschedule that appointment. You can find more information in this article.

If you have an urgent problem, please call 01784 253140 to speak to our reception staff so that we can offer advice or an appointment as necessary.

Updated 7 July 2020

April 2015 update

Today is the start of the new NHS year and as always there are some changes to advise our patients. Firstly for any courses of treatment starting from today, new NHS charges will apply. These are

Band 1
Band 2
Band 3

Also today, we see the introduction of a new feedback system called the Friends and Family Test. At the end of a course of treatment, patients will be asked to fill in a card asking: “How likely are you to recommend our dental practice to friends and family if they needed similar care or treatment?” All responses are anonymous.

Results will be collected by the practice and reported to the NHS monthly and we will be given a score.
