Corona Virus pandemic - Thursday 1st October 2020

At Horbury Dental Care we are open for business and are safely running a restricted service.

We are following the advice and guidance described by NHS England, The Chief Dental Officer, the British Dental Association and various standard setting organisations including the Faculty for General Dental Practice. The guidance is being updated on a regular basis; we are alert to this and responding as necessary in order to keep all our staff, patients and visitors safe.

The effect of new national guidelines is that we can only run a very restricted service and are presently working to a capacity of around 30% of normal. The guidance also dictates that we must work in a slightly different way.

Please read our protocol on re-opening:

CORONA VIRUS INFORMATION on what to expect when you come to the practice.

In summary:

  • In order to keep everybody safe we are having to reduce the number of patients visiting the practice and we are therefore only able to open five of our ten surgeries simultaneously.
  • All appointment times are extended, and we are very much trying to keep to our appointment times so as not to run late.
  • Between each appointment we need to observe fallow periods where the surgery is not in use and undertake a very deep clean not only of the surgery, but all communal areas.

Naturally, this does very much restrict the number of patients that we can see and ultimately therefore we are having to prioritise who can access our services. This has been done using a nationally published pathway and criteria for urgency. It also does mean that unfortunately that much of our routine work has had to be postponed including hygiene treatments and routine check-ups.

Not all these appointments are cancelled so if you do have a forthcoming appointment arranged with either the hygienist or your dentist for a check-up and have not heard from us to postpone or cancel the appointment, you should keep this as arranged or call us for further advice.

We will continue to review all of our policies and procedures and will keep updating our advice on our website.

One final important point is that we request you should only visit the practice in person if you have an appointment and you should attend your appointment alone.

If you have any questions, need to arrange an appointment or are a new patient and would like to register with the practice please call us or email us and we will be very happy to help you.

  • 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.
    Thank you.

  • 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.

    L. Redfearn
  • 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.
