Covid-19 Update 03/04/2020

Dental Provisions During the Corona Outbreak (updated 3.4.2010)

Following government guidelines, we are no longer allowed to have face to face contact with patients.

If you have an urgent dental problem that cannot wait ring the Practice number (01206 391065) and you will be diverted to a member of our staff, who will not be at our premises.

Your call will be screened and triaged. You will be offered advice at first hand, and if necessary a dentist may contact you to:-

  • Advise over the phone
  • Prescribe analgesics (pain killers) if appropriate
  • Prescribe antibiotics if appropriate.

Your prescription(s) will be sent directly to a designated pharmacist and you can pick them up directly from there. You must not pick them up yourself if you are self-isolating or have symptoms of Covid infection (raised temperature and \ or new continual cough), and neither should the person collecting the prescription on your behalf.

Where your dental problem is not resolved using the above measures, we will refer you to the local Urgent Dental Care Centre (UDC), where you will be treated using Standard Operating Procedures.

There are separate UDC’s for patients who have Covid Symptoms or self-isolating, and patients who do not have symptoms.

If your dental condition is an extreme emergency, you may be referred to a designated hospital.

For NHS patients who regularly attend our practice we are able to help during normal surgery hours (between 9am to 5pm) otherwise you will need to contact NHS 111 (these are General Dental Council Guidelines).

For practice plan and private patients you can also ring us during normal surgery hours at the first instance; and if necessary out of hours (including weekends).

Thank you for your understanding during these difficult times.
