Attendance Information

Although there has been a relaxing of Covid safety rules in other areas, healthcare settings follow different regulations. Here is a summary of our routine.

Pre-Attendance

This will be emailed to you, so please check your inbox and spam/junk folder if it has not been received

If you have any difficulty with the e-form, please call us and we will be happy to assist and help you.

These forms are secure and encrypted and returned directly to our secure computer patient notes. We would ask that anyone feeling unwell. with a heavy cold or cough or upper respiratory tract infection re-arrange any routine appointments. Please contact us though if you do have a dental emergency.
