Welcome to Great Shelford 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

A much improved service!

Since the introduction of the new surgery the whole process of booking an appt, attending the surgery and follow up has been much improved.

 

Julie Godfrey

I contacted the practice to book an appointment as a new NHS patient. I was delighted when they said they are taking on patients on the NHS as it is difficult to find a dentist. Very lovely building with friendly helpful staff. The dentist was very kind as I am a nervous patient they were keeping me at ease at all times. Have already recommended this surgery to my friends.

S Skelly

I came in for a regular check up and rate the service given very highly! Everyone was polite and extremely helpful. Feel very comfortable to come here as have always been a little nervous. A very big thank you to everyone who has helped me gain confidence within the practice!

I've been attending this Dentist for a number of years. I've always found the Practice to be extremely professional and aware of my needs. I would have no hesitation in recommending them to friends.
