On Thursday 28th May it was announced dental practices can reopen on 8th June.
At the practice we are all very pleased with this news and relieved that we can now see our patients again, this is long overdue. Despite this, we will need some time to prepare ourselves to ensure the safety of you all and of our staff.
Unfortunately, the entire dental profession had no prior warning of this announcement, with us all first hearing about it on the news as you will have. Due to this we would be grateful for your patience as we prepare ourselves, acquire the relatively scarce appropriate PPE and create the systems to keep everybody safe.
Many of you have contacted us during our enforced closure with dental emergencies, and these will be our first priority to be managed, along with those of you who had treatments outstanding prior to our closure. Once we have organised our clinic diaries we will be in contact with you to arrange your appointment.
If you are having a dental emergency please let us know and we will add you to our list to organise an appointment as soon as possible..
If you have had a routine dental appointment postponed and not rebooked due to our closure please bear with us a little longer as we catch up with our backlog. We have a record of all that have been postponed and once we are able to we will contact you to get these arranged.
If you have any queries please do not hesitate to contact us via email or phone, or through the contact form to the right which comes directly through to our reception team.
We really look forward to seeing you all again soon and thank you for your patience.
