Exciting News!! – We are pleased to announce we are coming back, and can begin to see our patients face to face again from the 8th of June.
Urgent Care – patients who have had dental emergencies during lockdown, and who may be part way through treatment
A member of the team will contact you shortly to discuss and arrange where necessary a follow up visit where we can provide any further temporary treatment required. Please be aware at this stage we are unable to provide permanent treatment.
Postponed routine appointments -examinations & hygienist appointments
We will be working hard to ensure our team contact you as soon as they can, to reschedule overdue appointments. We will be extending our hours temporarily to allow us not only to catch-up but to ensure we limit patient and staff numbers within the building adhering to social distancing guidelines.
Sian will be able to review and continue with her existing orthodontic patients resuming active treatment, and we will be in contact with you to arrange an appointment.
Will resume hopefully towards the end of June beginning of July.
There are restrictions to some of the treatment we can provide but our priority is to ensure that patient and staff safety is not compromised meaning you will find we have implemented changes to how the practice is usually run.
