Triage Helpline 07846 897596 — Monday to Friday between 10am and 4.30pm
We would like to address the announcement made by the government about the re-opening of dental practices from the 8th of June.
The overall health and safety of our patients and staff remains of paramount importance to us at the University Dental Centre. We are also very mindful that many patients require dental care.
Currently practices in England have not been given clear guidance (Standard Operating Procedures) of how to resume dental care, but we expect this to be confirmed in the coming week.
From the 9th of June, we expect to be running a limited emergency service, which will be by appointment only. However, we will not be able to give out appointments until we are provided with Standard Operating Procedures.
We hope to be able to give out appointments from June 4th, for patients to attend from June 9th, for emergency care. We are hopeful that, soon afterwards, we will be able to expand the scope of our service and aim towards providing a fully comprehensive service.
In the meantime, patients of the practice with emergencies can call on 07846 897596 during our usual working hours for triage and advice (10am - 4.30pm). If we are not able to deal with emergency problems through telephone advice, we will arrange a referral to a local Urgent Dental Care Centre.
Please be assured that we are working hard to deliver a clear and effective plan for resuming services to ensure the safest possible environment in which to deliver dental care. We thank you for your patience and cooperation and urge you to regularly check our website for updates.
