We hope you are all well .
The Chief Dental Officer has now announced that dental practices across England will be allowed to begin the process of reopening for all emergency and routine face to face dental care from Monday 8th June.
Throughout the pandemic, we have been clear that our first priority is the wellbeing of our patients and colleagues and this continues to be the case. As a result, Dental Elegance will be reopening on a limited capacity first to deal with emergencies.
It is likely that some treatments will be available before others as there are different PPE requirements for different treatments. We are working through the detail of this as quickly as possible and will be communicating directly with you soon with more information about when we will be open. In the meantime if you need advice, or if you are in need of urgent dental treatment, you should continue to contact the practice for help and advice .
We are determined to support patients who need care as quickly as possible and will be opening Dental Elegance to provide further treatments as soon as we are safely able to do so. We will keep you fully informed throughout this process.
