or call NHS 111 for further advice.

We hope you and your families have been keeping well through these difficult times.
As you will have seen, the government have announced that from June 8th 2020, the restrictions on dentists seeing patients face-to-face will be lifted. This news is greatly welcomed by us and our colleagues across the country, as this will allow us to get back to caring for our patients in our practices, where we have only been able to provide telephone triage until this point.
However, we must be aware that we will not be able to return and continue as before; there will be new guidance and procedures in place to ensure the safety and wellbeing of our patients and dental teams. We are still awaiting clarification on these as we need to be fully prepared with the required PPE (personal protective equipment) and a full understanding of all new systems and operational procedures, which will allow us to continue to meet our consistently high standards of infection prevention and control.
As a result of these changes, our capacity will be reduced in terms of the number of patients we will be able to see per day. We are expecting that we will initially be treating patients with emergencies and pain, as so many have had to hold off during lockdown and closures.
We are incredibly grateful for all of the support and understanding you have shown – we just ask you to be patient a little longer. As part of our commitment to safety and delivering optimal care, we cannot reopen until we are completely ready to do so. We aim for this to be on or as close to June 8th as possible.
This statement is under constant review; new guidelines are being released hourly at this point and we will keep you updated as and when developments arise.
We look forward to welcoming you back soon!
