How Often Should You Replace Your Toothbrush?

Of all of the items in our bathroom cabinet that we don’t give a second thought to, there is one that can lead to more health problems than any of the others. I am talking about, your toothbrush, of course. And, while you should replace your razor more often than you do, an old, worn…

COVID-19 Guidance


PRACTICE UPDATE To all our lovely patients. Thank you so much for all your patience and understanding since we were told to close our practice. It has been a difficult time for all, and we hope you and your loved ones are safe and well. We have been available during our normal opening hours for emergency advice and triaging throughout. We were pleased to hear the recent Government announcement that dental practices can reopen from the 8th of June. We have been working very hard to get as close to this date as possible. As we look ahead SAFETY will be the most important element. We will be using the first week to train our staff and update our policies and protocols, as well as continuously sourcing the necessary personal protective equipment. We hope we can open on the 15th of June for emergency assessments for patients who are in Pain, and provide a limited range of treatments.

As the restrictions start to ease we plan to prioritise our patients that had appointments canceled or problems during the lockdown period. It will be a slow transition to routine care and full range of services. You will notice your patient journey will be somewhat different to what you have been used to. We will be using our website, social media and emails to communicate these changes. Please lookout for these updates! Please do not come to the practice without a pre booked appointment.

We very much look forward to seeing you all soon, and getting back to the ‘new norm’
