Coronavirus (COVID-19) Notice

The Government has recently advised the public to stay at home, and for dentists to avoid aerosol-generating treatments. In practical terms, this is most of the things that we would do. In view of this, we are cancelling all routine check-up and treatment appointments for the foreseeable future.

We are operating on an emergency-only basis on weekday mornings. Without high-protection PPE, this does put our staff and patients at some degree of risk.

If you have an urgent need for treatment and no-one in your household is symptomatic, please call 01784 253140 as early as possible in the morning for us to triage you and offer advice or an appointment if necessary.

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
£18.80
Band 2
£51.30
Band 3
£222.50

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.
