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. 

The dental profession is well trained in the highest cross infection measures and we have robust covid-19 prevention.  All waiting areas observe strict social distancing, and all staff are screened before work for Covid symptoms and staff temperatures are checked. All patients are screened the day before their appointment and upon arrival for covid symptoms or contact. We are commencing daily lateral flow covid tests for all staff members. We have invested in medical grade HEPA 14 air filtration units, negative treatment room air pressure, hypochlorous disinfection measures and are certified face fit testers for our various, FFP3 and P3 respirators. After a filling, treatment rooms are thoroughly disinfected with hypochlorous and other viricidal cleaning agents. The worktops, doors, floor, dental and X-ray unit are cleaned. Disposable sterile covers are placed on all points of contact and all instruments sterile. 

If you have an appointment we shall send you an email the day before your appointment. Please look out for the link to a Covid screening questionnaire to complete.  If you do not receive an email within one day before your appointment, please contact us by phone.
