Like many of you, we found out through the media that dental practices will be allowed to resume face to face dental care from 8th June 2020. We very much welcome this news and look forward to seeing you.
To ensure social distancing guidelines are met, only those with booked appointments are able to enter the building during this phase of the pandemic. Therefore, please do not attend the practice unless you have a confirmed appointment. You can contact us by telephone or email with any queries you may have.

On behalf of the whole St Peters Dental Practice team, we would like to say a big thank you to all of our patient’s for your understanding, patience and best wishes at this challenging time. In particular to those of you who have been suffering with dental problems that didn’t meet the strict criteria to be seen face to face. As soon as we are able to see you safely, we will contact you to arrange an appointment. It will take a little while to see you all. If you have a dental issue that we don’t know about, or if your problem has become more severe, please contact us.If you are due or overdue routine care, please bear with us a little while longer so that we can see those who have dental problems first. This, together with the current social distancing and increased infection control requirements, does mean that appointments already in the diary in the coming weeks may need to be rearranged. We will contact those affected.
We are putting together some information for you to show you how appointments will work when we reopen. There will be changes from previous procedures, to ensure safe care during the pandemic. We will publish the measures that we are taking to keep you safe on Facebook, email newsletter and on our website.
In the meantime we are continuing to offer an emergency advice and prescription service for registered patients between 9am and 9pm 7 days a week, so if you have a dental emergency please give us a call on 01905 764 997 and listen to the message for instructions, or email us at email@example.comIt is helpful to us if we are able to carry out video consultations via Skype, Zoom or Facetime so please advise us if you have these available.
If it is not possible to treat your condition remotely it may be necessary to refer you to one of a number of urgent treatment centres that have been set up around the region.If you do have a dental emergency please contact us first and not NHS 111 or other emergency service so that we can advise you as to the appropriate course of action as these services are likely to be in high demand.We are looking forward to seeing you soon!
