This is a difficult and testing time for all of us and we understand there is a lot of uncertainty out there and we wish to assure you and our community that as we transition to Covid-19 alert level 4 our teams at the Dentists are here for you if you should need us.

As an essential service we will remain open and we have staff available for emergencies, however it is necessary and a government requirement that we suspend all non-essential dental services and this means all non- urgent scheduled appointments have had to been postponed.

We understand this is a stressful time and we are happy to consult with you and answer any of your questions over the phone. Don’t hesitate to call us. We care for you and if you have any concerns about your oral health and well being please give us a call. Our phone lines will be manned and answered by people who care.

As always, we are dedicated to keeping everyone, our patients and our staff, safe. We will continue to maintain our high standards of health and safety along with additional precautions that we have put in place in accordance with the guidelines outlined by the MOH.

Please take care and stay safe. Look after each other and help where you can.
