CORONA VIRUS CRISIS – SERVICE UPDATE 2/4/20
Horbury Dental Care continues to be closed for all face to face contact in line with Government instructions to all dental practices across the country.
We remain open in normal business hours for telephone advice and support only. Please do not attend the practice in person because we are not allowed to see patients face to face.
Please call 01924 211234 to speak to one of our team of dentists who will be happy to help if you have a dental emergency.
In order to support our colleagues in the wider NHS, we are running an emergency service from 8am to 8pm 7 days a week. Outside of business hours, our answer message will give details of a contact number to ring. Please try to avoid calling NHS 111 or your GP for dental problems.
In normal hours, we will arrange a telephone call back appointment from one of our dentists who is able to give advice and recommend self help treatments. Where appropriate prescriptions can be issued for you to collect from the local pharmacy.
Presently there are no services running at any dental practice in the UK to see patients with severe tooth ache. However, NHS England is working hard to open hubs for patients with urgent dental problems without symptoms of COVID 19 to be seen in the local community.
We would like to be one of these hubs and are working closely with NHS England to facilitate this. We had been hoping to give some news on this by today, but unfortunately there has been no progress. This is due to zero availability of Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) and no training for us in the use of said PPE. We also await training on the introduction of totally new standard operating procedures whilst trying to respect social distancing measures.
Please continue to check our website for updates.
In the meantime, we recommend that you follow government advice to undertake essential travel only.
We are keen to help our local community. If you know of anyone having difficulty going to the shops or collecting medicines, please let us know. We will do all that we can to help.
Please stay at home and protect our NHS

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.
