Most people recognise the need to visit their Dental Practice regularily - but how often ?


Every six months used to be the advice, the problem is that some dental disease creeps up, causing no pain and is not easily noticed or even sensed.

We advise that the best way to prevent dental disease is for you to come to see us as frequency as advised by your Dentist.

Three monthly or six monthly or annually or for a few Patients, two yearly, might be enough. Sometimes, the less frequently people attend, the easier it is to forget to make an appointment and thereby lose the benefits of regular visits.

Coronavirus Phase 2 - Dental Emergencies

From Tuesday 23rd June

Dental Practices in England were given Permission to re-open for certain emergency procedures, from the 8th June 2020. In Scotland, we heard from the Chief Dental Officer for Scotland on 18th June 2020 that the re-opening of Dental Practices could happen the following week – for Dental Emergencies.

It should be noted that Dental Practices will only be allowed to open ONE surgery, with one Dentist, and only see patients with a pre-arranged appointment, to examine them. We have still been limited to providing Advice, Antibiotics, Analgesics.

The crucial difference from Phase 1 is that we can now actually see our own patients for emergency appointments.
