Following the statement made by the Government about the resumption of dental services from 8th June, we have received many calls from patients requesting appointments. We at Leeming Dental Clinic, along with the rest of the profession are waiting for further guidance from the Chief Dental Officer to ensure that when we resume services it is in a manner in which our patients and staff are safe.
Whilst we work through the detail surrounding opening our practice to our patients we are unable to perform any dental procedures which involve the spread of an aerosol. Thus we kindly request that you only contact the practice in order to access the existing triage service in the event of a significant dental emergency.
We will be maintaining a telephone service for advice and for onward referral of emergencies as required.
Dental emergencies include:
– Severe pain for over 48 hours
– Facial Swelling
– Trauma or uncontrolled bleeding
Now is a challenging time for all of us, and we want to reassure you that we are taking all the necessary steps to protect your safety, your family’s safety and the safety of our practice team.
Based on the advice given by our Prime Minister announcement, we regret to inform you that the dental practice will be opening an emergency only policy.
We will endeavour to resume normal service week beginning 13th April 2020, although this may also be subject to change depending on how the situation unfolds.
If you already have an appointment scheduled upto the 11th April, a member of our team will be in touch to rearrange it.
Should you require treatment for dental pain or discomfort we have a dental team on site operating normal practice hours.
All routine treatment is to be postponed.We look forward to the day when normality can return and we can welcome you bank into the practice.

We would like to take this opportunity to thank you for your continued loyalty and support throughout these uncertain times and look forward to seeing you again soon.
With our best wishes,
The Team at Leeming Dental Clinic
