To all our valued patients,

We have some news on the COVID-19 front. You may be aware of the recent changes to our restrictions that have been passed down this week regarding Dental Practices. As of Friday the 8th of May we will be operating at LEVEL 1 COVID-19 restrictions. All dental procedures are eligible at this level.
Additional screening and infection control procedures will still be in place including the use of hand sanitiser, pre-procedural mouth rinses and social distancing. We will explain this on an individual basis prior to your attendance at our surgery.
