COVID-19 Update 

02/06/2020


Last week, the Chief Dental Officer released guidance with a change in circumstances, which will now allow us to open our doors to our patients from next week onwards. This is good news.  We understand a great number of patients have been eagerly awaiting dental care. With that said, the risk posed by COVID-19 has still not disappeared, and so we have been working hard to put procedures in place to ensure that we can deliver the safest care possible to our patients.


To allow for social distancing, fewer people will be allowed to enter the practice at any one time. There will also be longer times in between procedures to allow for thorough decontamination to take place. This may mean a reduced volume of appointments with us, but rest assured we shall try and see you as soon as possible. Please be aware that there are certain higher risk procedures, that we will not be carrying out at present, and that this may limit the range of treatment options we have available. We will however do the best we can to manage your dental problems.


In line with government guidance we will be prioritising bookings for those in most need i.e. those in severe dental pain or those with acute dental infection, and we shall move onto more routine care as time goes on. We have had several calls from patients over the last few months regarding dental emergencies. Please be assured that we will be contacting you in the near future, to see if you require an appointment.


If you do need to get in touch with us, please phone or email us, rather than attending in person.


Finally, we would like to extend a hearty thank you to all our patients for your patience during this difficult time. We are very much looking forward to seeing you soon.

Welcome to the Village Dental Practice.


We are a family dental practice located in the heart of Knebworth and we have been providing general dental care to the local community for over 20 years.

 

Our aim is to provide the highest standards of dentistry to all of our patients. We use the latest techniques and materials, and all staff undertake regular Continuous Professional Education to keep up-to-date with recent developments.


We understand that many patients can feel anxious about visiting the dentist and so we endeavour to provide care in a relaxed, comfortable and friendly environment.

 

Our practice offers both NHS and Private dental care, and many patients opt for a combination of both.

 

We place a strong emphasis on preventing dental disease, and offer plenty of advice to enable you to maintain your teeth and gums in a healthy state.


We like patients to be involved in decisions regarding their dental care. Once we have completed our examination, we always spend time explaining our findings to our patients, and discussing all available treatment options.
