We hope you and your loved ones are keeping safe and well and we want to thank you for your continued support and understanding during these difficult times.
Our promise is to keep in touch with you and keep you updated with our situation during the COVID-19 pandemic.
Latest government statement
As you will already know, our prime minister released a statement on Sunday evening. His statement was to outline the next steps in the approach to manage this pandemic. To remind you, this link is the updated status of physical distancing rules and the pandemic.
Some have been left a little unsure as to what this means for dental practices. Unfortunately, at this time, dental practices must remain closed.
We are governed by our Chief Dental Officer and the Department of Health. Guidance stands that it is still too high risk for dental practices to resume dental treatment. Personal Protective Equipment is in extreme short supply and the priority for such stock is with the hospitals and urgent care centres.
We continue to provide telephone support, video consultations and, where appropriate, arrange referrals to urgent dental centres.
As always, we will keep you updated in our weekly newsletter.
We cannot thank you enough for your support, patients and understanding.
Free dental health report without leaving the house
Given the current global situation we realised that we needed to be doing more to continue to help patients with their dental needs. We are excited to share that we have teamed up with SmileMate and their fantastic facility to enable patients to access accurate dental advice without leaving home.
With SmileMate we are able to provide you with a fully comprehensive dental report without you having to leave the house.
With just a few clicks, and a couple of photos of your teeth, you will receive a detailed report on your oral health, and suggestions where required, all within less than 10 minutes!
“What’s the catch?” you might ask….. None! It is a completely free service that we are providing to you to help you maintain a good oral health during this global pandemic.

If you need us….
We understand, if you suffer a dental problem at home this could be a daunting and distressing experience for you. Especially knowing you cannot just visit us like you normally would. However, we are still here to help! Our phone line is still operational during our opening hours. Currently we are still providing telephone advice for patients who are experiencing dental emergencies. We would ask that patients avoid calling 111 where possible and contact us as normal if they have a query.
Alternatively, we are offering video appointments with Dr Gill. This allows you to see Dr Gill and speak to him regarding any dental problems you may be experiencing.
