Please do not attend for an appointment if you have symptoms of Covid 19. We would ask you to continue to wear a mask in the practice until you are seated in the dental chair

We aim to reduce numbers of people moving through the practice and to observe social distancing within the premises as much as possible. Therefore, if you feel it necessary, one parent can attend the practice with the patient .

Thank you for your patience and understanding at this time.
