required to prioritise access to treatment on the basis of clinical need and to provide
treatment to urgent and high priority patients.
When check-up appointments become available, your dentist will

continue to be limited while current cross infection and social distancing protocols
remain in place, although practices with sufficient capacity may be able to start

Please be patient. We hope the public will be understanding of the current
