Our practice is currently unable to provide face to face consultations as we are following government guidance given to all Dental practices in England to help reduce the spread of Covid-19.
If you are registered with us and would like urgent advice during normal working hours, please call 02476451569 and one of our dentists will call you back to triage the problem and offer advice.
At present, our dentists can only offer telephone advice and prescribe analgesics and antibiotics depending on your symptoms. They can also refer you to the community dental services who in turn will triage your symptoms and refer on to a local urgent dental centre operating under enhanced cross infection control measures if this is required.
PLEASE DO NOT COME TO THE PRACTICE
If you have SEVERE PAIN, SWELLING, BLEEDING OR TRAUMA outside of normal hours please call 111.
For non-urgent questions about appointments and other general queries please call 02476451569. Please ensure that you are following all the advice our dentists(therapists, nurses, receptionists) have given you, it is especially important to practice good oral hygiene during the current situation where dental practices are unable to provide routine dental care.
We appreciate that the current situation is difficult and testing for all of us.
We look forward to opening the practice and welcoming everyone back as soon as we are told it is safe to do so.
In the meantime, we hope that you all stay safe and well.

Stay at home to stop coronavirus spreading
Everyone must stay at home to help stop the spread of coronavirus.
You should only leave the house for 1 of 4 reasons:
- shopping for basic necessities, for example, food and medicine, which must be as infrequent as possible
- one form of exercise a day, for example, a run, walk, or cycle – alone or with members of your household
- any medical need, or to provide care or to help a vulnerable person
- travelling to and from work, but only where this absolutely cannot be done from home
Use the 111 online coronavirus service to find out what to do. If you cannot use this service, call 111.
