Coronavirus / COVID -19  Updated 10/05/2022


We remain open for all forms of dentistry.  Please rest assured we have excellent and well practiced Covid-19 protective measures in place to ensure you have a safe visit. We have implemented, and are keeping to, the highest level of Covid safety as recommended by our governing bodies. We are excellent at cross-infection measures and covid safety is our upmost priority. If you have an upcoming appointment we look forward to seeing you as planned. Please contact us should you wish to reschedule. 

In keeping with the current guidelines for healthcare environments we continue to take COVID-19 seriously. We need to do this as we have elderly and immunocompromised patients sharing the same environment. Healthcare guidelines continue to advise the wearing of face mask so we please encourage you to do so when entering the practice.

We operate a 'closed door policy', meaning only patients with an appointment are allowed to enter the building.  

When you approach the practice, our reception team will remotely open the automatic front door for you.

On entering the building, a member of our team will greet you and ask you a few covid related questions.


We will then ask you to use the alcohol hand sanitiser provided or if this is not possible, to wash your hands.



  • Hand shaking will be avoided.

  • Clinical staff and patients will be wearing masks when you arrive and throughout your visit.

  • Visits are appointment only.

  • Please avoid arriving too early at the practice.

  • Please do not brush you teeth on arrival in the wash room.

We look forward to seeing you at your appointment.
