Lockdown 3.0 Update (04/01/2021)

Dear patients,

Please rest assured that we will be staying open through out the third lock down (4 Jan 2021) and there will be no change to our service. If you have an appointment, please still attend the clinic.

The Chief Dental Officer of England has instructed dental practices to remain open. Dentistry is considered an essential service by the government. 

We already have very detailed safety procedures in place to ensure your safety and we thank you for your support during the last few months.   

If you have been asked to "shield" because you are considered extremely clinically vulnerable by your GP, then please contact the practice before you attend for a face to face appointment.  

For all other patients, if you have any concerns please contact us and we will be happy to answer your questions.
