COVID Measures

WE Have worked hard to ensure a secure and prompt return for our patients in the safest possible environment.  We significantly value your help with any new or adjusted ways of working at the practice. 

How Will My Appointment Differ? 

We have created a leaflet to explain what to do when you attend the surgery.

It is important to read this before attending.

COVID Safety

To ensure the safety for our staff and patients we have implemented a number of procedures.To learn more please read our COVID POLICY. These may be subject to change in line with national and international guidance.

Please note  we have a strict 'by appointment only' policy in place for the time being.  Please only come to the surgery if you have a pre-arranged appointment.  At all other times please contact us by telephone on 01865 880047 or email

Dental Services

We are providing face to face care for existing and new patients.

We provide a full range of clinical services, the treatment our dentists offer is not restricted by the pandemic. 

Our hygienist provides hand scaling rather than ultrasonic treatment. Liz has a preference for this approach which has been clinically proven to be as effective. It is often preferred by the patient who generally find it more comfortable.

We work hard to enable us to see all our patients promptly with no long waiting list or unnecessary delays to treatment. We continue to provide same day emergency appointments.

To allow us to  ensure social distancing and facilitate extra deep cleaning/ air exchange in our surgeries we are currently:

o Suspending our online booking facility

o Working through our list of NHS examinations for our patients under 18

Things will work and look a bit differently but its still us behind the masks! We have prepared a comprehensive patient information pack and leaflet for you. These will be emailed to you when you book an appointment or by request. We have made them available to view through the links above.

For further information including how we achieved such prompt resumption of care, vulnerable patients and looking after our Denplan patients, please see our question and answers section in our news item.

We look forward to seeing you very soon. On behalf of all our team, thank you for your support.
