Wednesday 14th July 2021
Throughout the pandemic we have done everything possible to protect our staff and patients ensuring the practice is COVID safe whilst still providing the best care and service possible with all Government guidelines followed.
However with the current covid situation in Torbay and the nature of dentistry and the service we provide, we feel it is not the right time to ease our safety procedures on 19th July.
On Monday we will continue to follow our current procedures and feel at this time this is the best and safest option for staff, patients and our community.
Thank you for understanding and supporting us through this difficult time.
Monday 6th July 2021
We cant believe that we have been back in the practice for just over a year after the initial March 2020 lockdown. We have been working really hard to ensure the practice is Covid safe whilst still providing as close to a normal patient friendly service as the regulations allow. We will continue to carefully monitor the information and will of course share any changes with our patients. We would like to thank everyone for following the regulations and enabling us to keep providing care to our patients.
Wednesday 6th January 2021 – WE ARE OPEN
The Government has specified that all routine and urgent medical and dental appointments should go ahead during the current lockdown. Your routine dental appointment is important for your health.
Please call the Practice to book your appointment if you are due or if you have any dental worries.
The practice operates very strict covid secure procedures to keep all our patients and staff safe.

We have updated our procedures, we are wearing lots of PPE and have a new appointment system but it’s still the same great team providing the very best dental care.
Please do not attend the surgery unless you have been given a new appointment and have been pre-assessed. We are dealing with all our emergencies and outstanding work but will be in touch with you all very soon to re-arrange all appointments.

8th June – Update
29th May – Reopening Announced
We are very pleased to hear that Dental Practices can begin to reopen from 8th June.
We have spent time over the last 10 weeks to prepare for our reopening. However it will not be a straight ‘back to normal’ return.
We have always taken the safety of our patients and staff as paramount importance and will be adopting all new procedures and PPE to ensure that this continues. Due to social distancing and new guidelines our initial capacity to see patients will be reduced. Please be patient as we prioritise your care.
PPE continues to be in short supply, and at the beginning of lockdown we donated our surplus to Torbay Hospital and Marie Curie Nurses. We have procured some PPE but we are waiting for back orders of more stock to arrive.
We are very aware that many patients have been in pain and discomfort and we will be in touch with you to offer you appointments at the end of next week. We will also be commencing our much needed routine work as soon as we possibly can.
Please only call the surgery this week if you are experiencing pain, swelling, bleeding or trauma.
Please do not attend the surgery unless you have an appointment.
We hope to see you all very soon.
Rob & the Team
