CORONA VIRUS (COVID-19) UPDATE
We have now received updated guidance from the Chief Dental Officer and we are requested to no longer see patients face to face.
Unfortunately this now includes dental emergencies even for asymptomatic patients.
If you do have a dental emergency or would like any dental advice then please contact us and leave a message either on our answer phone or via email and a member of staff will get back to you during normal working hours. Please do not go to any emergency department or contact your GP. They are really busy, can not help you and you have a greater risk of catching the corona virus in these areas.
There will be hubs opening where patients with certain dental emergencies will be able to attend As yet we have no details how patients will access these services.
However a dental emergency will only be classed as the following,trauma,bleeding from a recent extraction socket ,swelling and feeling systemically unwell, and severe pain that can not be controlled with the usual painkillers.
Please be aware broken dentures, lost fillings, lost crowns are no longer considered emergencies. However we can give advice.
We apologise for this disruption and wish all our patients well. We ask you all to look after yourselves and stay safe by following government advice at www.gov.uk or at www.nhs.uk.
