We wanted to update you on the current situation and our plans around being able to see patients again.
Firstly, we would like to thank you for your patience through this difficult time and unforeseen closure. We have been busy working to try to ensure a safe way to resume treatment.
Staged re-opening from 15th June
You may have heard that dental practices can now begin to re-open from Monday 8th June.
Our practice will be opening on 15th June.
However, it’s important that we let you know that at this stage, it will not be business as usual:
- We will continue to advise and triage patients remotely.
- We will risk-assess emergencies and treat you if possible or refer you to an urgent dental care centre.
- We will not yet be able to see any patients for routine examinations.
- We will not be able to carry out any aerosol-producing procedures – this includes treatments that involve the use of a drill or scaler.
To contact us, please call 020 8348 1480 and follow the instructions on the recorded message. For out-of-hours dental emergencies, please call 111.
Introducing extended opening hours on Mondays and Wednesdays.
We know it can be tricky to attend dental appointments during normal working hours, so we’ve introduced early (7.30am – 9am) and late (5.30pm – 8pm) opening on Mondays and Wednesdays for private appointments.
We have recently started seeing hygiene patients on Monday and Tuesday evenings.
The last appointments on those days are at 7.30pm.
We know it’s hard finding the time to visit a dentist, especially when you’re working in Town full-time.
That’s why we’re open on Saturdays and till 8pm for private appointments on Tuesdays.
We were delighted to welcome the inspiring children of the Watoto Children’s Choir to our Crouch End practice recently for free checkups and dental treatment.
Twenty-two children, aged between six and twelve, came to see us, all of whom have suffered the loss of their parents through war or disease in Africa.
The choir have performed for audiences all over the world including heads of state. This year, they sang at the Queen’s Diamond Jubilee Pageant.
Unfortunately we didn’t manage to bring home the spoils at the 2013 Dental Awards.
Although disappointed, we’re still thrilled that we were named as a finalist for an award at this prestigious event, supported by the UK’s leading dental magazines.
We’re delighted to announce that the Watoto Children’s Choir will be visiting Middle Lane Dental on 13th July 2013.
They’ll be popping in for a free dental check-up while taking a break from their current UK tour.
Watoto Children’s Choirs have travelled internationally since 1994 as advocates for the estimated 50 million children in Africa orphaned as a result of HIV/AIDS, war, poverty and disease. Each of the children in the choir have themselves suffered the loss of their parents, either through war or disease.
We’re delighted to say that Middle Lane Dental has been named as a finalist for an award at the prestigious 2013 Dental Awards.
These awards recognise excellence in UK dentistry and are supported by the UK’s leading dental magazines.
The winners will be announced on 19th April at the Lancaster Hotel. We’ll let you know how we get on.
If you’re reading this then you hopefully will have noticed that we have a brand spanking new website!
We hope you like it and find it useful. If there’s any information that you think is missing or you have any suggestions for things you’d like to see on here, then please do let us know.
We’d love to hear what you think.
We’ve recently had our regular inspection by the Care Quality Commission – the independent regulator that checks on standards of care. We’re delighted to report that we passed with flying colours in every category. And we thought we’d share what they said our lovely patients told them…
