Dental Treatment and COVID-19

Dear Patients,

On 25th March 2020 Sara Hurley (Chief Dental Officer England) and Matt Neligan (Director of Primary Care and System transformation) released their latest statement on the rapidly developing COVID-19 pandemic.

We would like to update you on how this will affect our service provision at Dentalcare Group. The guidance is clear that all routine, non-urgent dental care, including orthodontic treatments must be deferred until advised otherwise. We are still here to support you and your dental needs through this unprecedented time.

We want to take this opportunity to reassure all our patients that we take the spread of the COVID-19 in the UK very seriously. The health and safety of our patients, staff and visitors to our dental practice is our main priority.

Here at Dentalcare Group we will be providing all our patients with a remote service during normal working hours. Our dentists will perform telephone triaging for: advice; analgesia; and antimicrobials (if appropriate) . We will not be able to see you at the practice.

If it is not possible to manage your symptoms remotely, you will have to be referred to a Local Urgent Dental Care Centre. Details of these are currently being established in our area and we will update you as soon as we have further information.

We will use our best professional judgement in the triaging process and work collaboratively with our Local Urgent Care system, possibly volunteering our expertise where necessary to help meet the demands imposed on this new emergency service.

Stay safe.
Kind Regards,
Dentalcare Group Team

at Dentalcare Langley

Your local NHS dentist in Langley

At Dentalcare, we are proud to offer NHS dentistry for our local patients. We greatly value the NHS and it is vital that we continue to support it along with providing essential care to our community.

The NHS will provide dental treatment that is needed to keep your teeth and gums healthy. It does not cover any cosmetic treatments such as tooth whitening which is not essential to the health of your teeth.

As an NHS patient, you are of course welcome to pay for cosmetic treatments. We offer a range of flexible finance plans to help spread the cost.

We are also a referral centre for children’s orthodontics; these types of dental braces are free to those patients under the age of 18 who have a clear orthodontic need. Please ask your dentist to make a referral if you are a suitable candidate.
