Keeping You Safe

We’re transforming the dental journey to give you
the best dental care and ensure your safety

Here are some of the ways we are making your visit safer

Virtual Consultations

Whether it’s for cosmetic treatment or an emergency, we can give you the answers you need before we meet in person. Book online or call us, and we can arrange a discussion with a dentist at a time that suits you.

Health checks in advance

We’ll send you an online medical form which screens for COVID-19 symptoms ahead of your appointment. Please fill this in and let us know if you’re feeling unwell - we can reschedule your appointment if needed.

Spaced visits

We’ll only have 2 patients in the practice at one time and avoid contact between you

Less waiting time 

We’re minimising the amount of time you spend at the practice by asking you to
- fill in necessary forms online before your appointment
- arrive on time and not too early - wait outside and we'll bring you in when the practice is ready for you (limited waiting capacity available for special circumstances)


We’ll be wearing masks, gloves, aprons, goggles and where necessary, respirators. You won't see our full faces but know that we're smiling and happy to see you! 

Surface disinfection and sterilisation 

We're continuing to uphold the gold standard of disinfecting all surfaces including door handles between each patients. As always, we only use rigorously sterilised or disposable instruments.

Safe check-in

When you arrive at the practice, we’ll check your temperature and give you hand sanitiser. Before a dentist examines your mouth, we’ll give you an antimicrobial mouthwash.

Air purification system

Our modern air purification system maintains optimal air quality by removing more than 99.97% of respiratory viruses including coronavirus.

Shielding Patients

Please let us know if you are shielding - we can arrange for you to be seen at a time dedicated for your care.

Domiciliary visits

We may be able to provide emergency dental care in full PPE from the comfort of your own home, if you are elderly or unable to travel to the practice. Please get in touch and we'll see how we can best meet your needs.
