To help stop the spread of coronavirus, we are advising against all non-urgent dental treatment. 

This includes:  

  • Dental check-ups. 
  • Preventive treatments such as scale and polish and fluoride varnishes. 
  • Examinations and x-rays. 
  • Appointments for braces. 
  • Cosmetic dental treatment of any kind e.g. tooth whitening. 
  • Routine denture treatment. 
  • Treatments on teeth that are not painful e.g. fillings and extractions. 

It is likely that your dental practice will contact you to postpone these appointments. 

If you do not hear from your dental practice, we recommend that you contact them to cancel your appointment and rearrange it for a later date. 

Some dental practices have decided to close during this time, while others are running reduced services. If you have been affected by this, your dental practice should have been in contact with you. 

Whenever possible, stay at home and help stop the spread of coronavirus.  This includes people of all ages – even if you do not have any symptoms or other health conditions. 

Non-necessary dental treatment is not a reason for you to leave the home.
