• You will be asked questions regarding your health and contact with anyone who may have had COVID-19.

If you cannot get an answer to your phone call, the dental nurse will look for your car in the car park at your allotted appointment time. Sadly, if you are late for your appointment we will not be able to see or treat you.

• If the appointment is for a child then one accompanying will be able to come with the child to the appointment.
