We want you all to know that we hope that each and every one of you is keeping safe in these uncertain times.
As each day goes by, guidance in relation to dentistry is changing quickly in response to the COVID-19 pandemic.
On May 28th it was announced that dentists could open from June 8th.
We would like to open the practice as soon as possible. However patient and staff safety is our priority and as a result many changes need to be made to the way in which we provide our care.
As a result the re-opening will be a phased return, as we risk manage how we can best treat our patients.
Our priority will be to see those patients with urgent needs and then follow with getting all patients back in to routine care.
We know you are concerned about your treatment - please be assured that it is our concern too.
We will contacting you over the next few weeks when we are ready for your appointment.
In addition we will updating our website advising you of what to expect when you attend the practice.

Specialist versus General Dentist
All orthodontists are dentists, but only 5% of dentists are orthodontists.
Both dentists and specialist orthodontists can provide orthodontic treatment, but a general dentist usually has less formal training and may not be as experienced as our dedicated Specialists.
You can be rest assured that our Specialist Orthodontists are highly qualified and their levels of expertise will ensure that you will get the best end result - that perfect smile.
Providing NHS Treatment
We have provided high quality NHS orthodontics care to children over the last 23 years. We are committed to the continuation of this service so that the children in our community have the opportunity to benefit from lovely straight teeth and a beautiful smile.
All of our patients receive the same high quality treatment and end result however they are funded. See if you or your family could qualify for NHS treatment.
