Welcome to Letchworth Dental Surgery

Coronavirus COVID-19 Update

Latest announcement by the government in the news that dentist can open on the 8th June 2020.

Throughout the pandemic, we have been clear that our first priority is the wellbeing of our patients and staff and this continues to be the case. As a result, the practice will only be reopening once we are satisfied that we have all of the necessary processes and personal protective equipment in place to ensure everyone’s safety.

Dentists were not given any notice of our reopening date and the information was only received via the daily briefing.  We are working around the clock to get protocols and procedures in place based on the latest guidance made available.

We will contact patient via email with more information about when the practice will reopen and will also be updating the website. In the meantime, please do not attempt to make a new appointment or attend the practice in person for any reason unless you are asked to do so. If you need advice, or if you are in need of urgent dental treatment, you should continue to call the practice and leave a voicemail. One of the dentists will return your call and be able to help.

We are determined to support patients who need care as quickly as possible and will be opening the practice to provide further treatments as soon as we are safely able to do so. We will keep you fully informed throughout this process

Testimonials

Made to feel very comfortable and at ease

 

I have been visiting this dentist for many years and the new practice is still excellent. One member of staff is very nice on reception and the dentist and his assistant were excellent and explained each step of the procedure

Fantastic surgery, early appointment great for me

 

I highly recommend this practice and my dentist. Great that i can get an appointment at 8.30am and usually don't have to wait longer than a week to secure this time slot. The dentist was lovely and calming as well when she found out I was nervous about visiting a new practice after moving towns and a dentist I finally trusted after not visiting any practice for 5 years. Many thanks!

Excellent first impressions

 

The reception was warm and pleasant. I was sent a number of reminder emails and a telephone call prior to my appointment which I found useful. Whenever I spoke to reception over the telephone they were very polite and easy to deal with. The dentist I visited was friendly, informative and efficient. Unfortunately I required a filling but was offered to have the treatment carried out immediately rather than booking another appointment which I found very helpful.
