In line with Government guidelines, we’re pleased to say that our practices are open again to care for you and your smiles.
May we ask that you don’t visit your local practice in-person without a pre-arranged appointment first – it’s for everyone’s safety.
If you’re after some help and advice, we’ve created a series of guides on how to look after your oral health during COVID-19 which you can find in the Our COVID-19 Safety Charter.
Take care and stay safe.
