COVID-19 update

Covid-19 update

Our nurses and dentists have been working hard against a very difficult back drop trying to get the surgery ready to start seeing patients again. The current position has been made very difficult by many circumstances beyond our control.

We have actually been open all of this time and we never actually closed or stopped helping patients. This has included those that have never seen us before as well as our regular patients. The only thing that has been different is the way that we work and operate.

Assessing a dental emergency at home…

Following guidance from the Chief Dental Officer (England), we are currently unable to offer face-to-face appointments, including emergency appointments. However, during this time, we are committed to ensuring that you have access to as much information as possible. This guide should help you from home until you can be seen by a dentist. Please remember that whilst our doors may be closed, we are answering our telephones for advice, so please do contact us if you are unsure. We may choose to refer you to a local hub if we feel you need to be seen by a dentist.

Stay safe

I hope everyone is keeping safe.
Don’t forget if you have any dental related issues please ring the practice for advice. We are available 7 days a week, between 8.30am and 8.30pm. We will make a decision, based on your symptoms, whether we need to refer you for treatment at a local Hub.

We are still available for telephone advice…

Happy Easter…

The team at Sharrow Vale Dental Care want to remind you that although our practice is currently closed for appointments following the COVID-19 guidelines our dental service phone line is still open for emergency advice between 8.30am – 5pm. Please call 0114 2686076.

Coronavirus update 25th March 2020

To all our loyal and wonderful patients,

You may be aware I had to take the decision to close the practice for routine treatment yesterday. This is because of the guidance and recommendations we as a profession have had from the Government, and the British Dental Association.
