We continue to review the advice provided by the Chief Dental Officer and NHS England. The current status has now changed and we look forward to re-opening on the               8th June 2020.

We are well prepared for this opening, having procured appropriate PPE including 3M FFP2 masks and single use surgical gowns.  We have invested in medical grade HEPA 14 air filtration units and have put in place a robust 

heightened cross-infection protocols in response to coronavirus. We have fit tested all our clinical staff and are ready to go.


Please note we will initially be limited in the dental services we can provide and will prioritise appointments for those with dental emergencies. We expect routine treatments such as dental examinations to resume on 

the 24th June 2020. 


Dental emergencies prior to 8th June 2020.

We are still providing emergency dental advice for registered patients. Examples of a dental emergency include dental trauma, facial swelling, dental infections and severe dental pain. 

Please contact the practice on 01462 434512 if you develop a dental emergency. For out of hours, please phone 111. 

All routine dentistry has stopped and dental emergency care will be provided by 'Urgent Dental Care' centres which are now set-up.  

Our practice is part of the team set up across the East of England to deliver this service.

We are monitoring developments closely and attempting to interpret the advice and to how it will apply. 



We thank you for your continued trust and look forward to seeing you all soon.
