COVID 19 Arrangements

← Return to Blog
As you may be aware, dentists are now advised to restrict treatments in general practice to emergency only.
 
We will be taking calls to triage emergencies and give advice MONDAY to SUNDAY 9am-12pm on 02886762200. Those who require treatment will be seen that afternoon.
 
Acute Dental emergencies are classified as:
 
SEVERE DENTAL PAIN
SWELLING
DENTAL TRAUMA
UNCONTROLLED BLEEDING
 
We will not be able to accept walk-ins and unfortunately are advised not to treat patients who do not meet the above criteria.
 
If you have a raised temperature or new, continuous cough you must follow government guidance and remain at home and call NHS 111 for advice.
 
We understand and are sorry that this is not the normal level of access you are used to but we all must play our part in stopping the spread of the virus.
 
Stay safe, stay home
