The Welsh Government has implemented an ‘Amber Dental Alert’ to all dental practices in Wales. This means:

We will contact all patients by telephone prior to their upcoming appointments in order to assess:

– If they, or anyone in their household have any symptoms of Coronavirus

– If they are in self-isolation

– If they are in a vulnerable risk group (see below)

We will be cancelling all routine appointments (non-emergency) for vulnerable risk groups, these are as follows:

– Over 70 years old

– Pregnant Women

– Health Issues

Hygiene appointments are still continuing for patients not in a risk group. However, hygienists will be using hand scalers only

We will be cancelling all routine aerosol generating procedures (i.e. fillings, crowns, root canals etc)

If you have a dental emergency, but have any signs or symptoms of Coronavirus or are self-isolating please call 0845 46 47. Do not come to the practice
