We would like to update you of a temporary change of service due to the current lockdown situation in response to the Covid-19 pandemic.
In line with Government guidance all dental practices have now been instructed to temporarily cease the assessment and treatment of patients on a face-to-face basis. We therefore have no choice other than to operate a limited service providing emergency advice and prescriptions where appropriate. If you have severe pain, swelling or trauma then please contact the practice on 01454 412053 and follow the recorded message. The message will provide details of how to access the emergency advice. If you are an orthodontic patient, you can also visit the British Orthodontic Society website on https://www.bos.org.uk/ for advice.
The government are currently setting up dental emergency treatment centres which will be specifically geared to deal with dental emergencies in view of the COVID-19 crisis. We will provide details of your nearest treatment centre should you require further investigation and/or treatment.
We are, in line with government guidance, aiming to resume a normal service as soon as practicably possible. We are striving to ensure that no patient is disadvantaged in these unprecedented times. When possible, the practice will be running extra clinics / sessions to fulfil any outstanding exam, treatment and hygiene appointments and deal with the undoubted increased demand.
We would appreciate your support and patience during these difficult times. If you are on the dental plan this will continue to run as normal during this temporary closure. On resuming normal service, we will be working extremely hard to get things back on track. We will endeavour to keep you updated with the ever-changing situation we are all facing. Please refer to our website for further updates.
Please look after yourself and your family, stay safe, we look forward to seeing you soon.
Bank Cottage Dental Team
As a person with a fear of dentists who had not visited one in 8 years I can honestly say Dentist Tim Lindop and Nurse Lisa made me feel at ease. They were friendly and professional and I cannot recommend them highly enough. Tim took the time to thoroughly explain to me what he was going to do before beginning which took a lot of my anxiety away. After explaining my concerns Tim was very patient and understanding and the injections I received were very gentle. Excellent dental practice with exceptional staff, I won't be going anywhere else in future.
