Covid-19 Update – Following Government Announcement.
1st March 2021
Horbury Dental Care continues to remain open. We are working to restricted capacity and following nationally published guidelines to keep all patients and staff safe.
If you have an appointment and haven’t seen us since the start of the pandemic, please read our downloadable guidance Horbury Dental Care- What To Expect to familiarise yourself with our new protocols.
Inevitably things are a little different and we hope that the information will explain what we are doing to adhere to social distancing requirements and deliver a safe experience at the dentist.
I think we are enthused by the Prime Ministers timetable to start lifting restrictions and we hope the road to the 21st June is a smooth one. Everyone would like to see a return to normal.
But in the meantime we are still awaiting guidance from Public Health England, NHS England, The British Dental Association and the Chief Dental Officer for England to understand how the easing of restrictions will affect the way we can deliver dentistry.
At the present time we are still working to a hugely reduced capacity (45% of normal) This does mean a degree of prioritising appointments and we are very sorry if we have had to reschedule a routine appointment for you. We hope you will understand why this is necessary.
We are aware that there is a large group of patients who have not been seen for a routine ‘check up’ now for around 18 months. A few patients will be even longer than this.
We have information from our database of all patients who had appointments cancelled from the start of the pandemic enforced restrictions – back to March 2020.
We will be starting to contact patients and inviting them to arrange a check up appointment. We hope that those cancelled last March, will be seen this March. April cancellation will be offered an appointment in April 2021. And so on for each month. Please bear in mind we have a backlog of around 3000 appointments and this will take time to work through especially whilst working under present restrictions. We hope that as the restrictions are eased we can open more surgeries and return to pre-pandemic capacity levels very quickly.
If you have been wondering about your dental check up – we hope this explains the situation. Please don’t hesitate to contact us if you have any urgent dental problem requiring emergency advice and /or treatment. If you have a general enquiry, please call us and our team will be happy to help and advise. Or feel free to email us- firstname.lastname@example.org and we will aim to respond within one working day.
I will continue to update this page as more information becomes available to us on the lifting of restrictions in dentistry Our goal is to continue to keep everyone safe and well as restrictions are lifted and we will return to a ‘normal service’ when guidelines permit.
We We can assure all patients that we are committed to improving oral health. We are as anxious as you will be to limit further delays to your dental acre. We want all patients to be able to access all our services as soon as practicably possible.
Thank you for your patience and understanding

What Our Patients Say
Absolutely fabulous service from all the staff. Warm, friendly, courteous & very professional. As for Nick….what can I say? I would recommend him to anyone. My implant has really made a difference to my life and it has been worth every penny. Very happy – thank you!
I am delighted with the result of the work you have done on my front teeth. As you know I was extremely nervous about the procedure and want to say thank you for your patience and for the wonderful final effect you achieved, they look so natural. Now I finally have the perfect smile! Really glad I came to you, I would recommend you to anyone who is thinking of having dental implants! Wishing you all the best.
I would Just like to say a big thank you to Nick Lane and his team at Horbury Dental clinic.I lost front teeth after an assault and went to see Nick. Nick talked me through the different options and told me about the implant procedure and re assured me he would keep me out of pain.
I started my treatment and soon found out Nick had a very calm manner that put me at ease from the start. All the way through my implant procedure I was never in any pain. Nick fitted me some temporary teeth and to be honest I would not have been dissatisfied if he said they were my permanent ones, they were that nice.
On Nick putting my permanent set in they felt like my own teeth straight away. I cannot thank Nick and his team enough for what they have done for me. The receptionists are particularly nice and helpful when you first arrive. Anybody who wants nice teeth should call Horbury dental clinic.
To Mark and all the staff, I had 6 implants in my lower jaw in 2009. I have now had 4 more in my upper jaw. What more could be said for such expertise work and care from you all. I would not hesitate in advising anyone to have implants put in, many thanks, you are a great team.
Dear James, my grateful thanks to yourself and the staff at Horbury Implant Clinic. Your patience and kindness during my treatment was much appreciated and also the ongoing care. I am delighted with the results of the implant surgery, they look part of me! Unless I choose to tell, no-one is aware I have several ‘false’ teeth. It is wonderful to be able to smile for a photograph again. Something I have avoided doing for far too long. Your skill and professionalism is excellent and to be recommended.
Dear Nick, just a brief note to say thank you, the amazing results with my recent implants were well worth it. The results are better than I could have hoped for. Damage done by my school dentist 50 years ago is now sorted out. No more faulty bridge or dodgy dentures. A smile with confidence! Many thanks and best wishes.
