Dental Treatment and COVID-19

Dear Patients,

On 25th March 2020 Sara Hurley (Chief Dental Officer England) and Matt Neligan (Director of Primary Care and System transformation) released their latest statement on the rapidly developing COVID-19 pandemic.

We would like to update you on how this will affect our service provision at Dentalcare Group. The guidance is clear that all routine, non-urgent dental care, including orthodontic treatments must be deferred until advised otherwise. We are still here to support you and your dental needs through this unprecedented time.

We want to take this opportunity to reassure all our patients that we take the spread of the COVID-19 in the UK very seriously. The health and safety of our patients, staff and visitors to our dental practice is our main priority.

Here at Dentalcare Group we will be providing all our patients with a remote service during normal working hours. Our dentists will perform telephone triaging for: advice; analgesia; and antimicrobials (if appropriate) . We will not be able to see you at the practice.

If it is not possible to manage your symptoms remotely, you will have to be referred to a Local Urgent Dental Care Centre. Details of these are currently being established in our area and we will update you as soon as we have further information.

We will use our best professional judgement in the triaging process and work collaboratively with our Local Urgent Care system, possibly volunteering our expertise where necessary to help meet the demands imposed on this new emergency service.

Stay safe.
Kind Regards,
Dentalcare Group Team

at Langley Dental

Private dentistry available in Langley

Perhaps you need a regular dental check-up? Or you have a specific concern about your teeth? Perhaps you’re looking to make a big change with your teeth? Whatever the reason for your visit, we will be delighted to help.

At Langley Dental we are proud to offer both Private dental services to our patients and you can be assured that you will receive the same exceptional level of care for both.

NHS Dental Patients

We remain committed to the NHS and all that it stands for. We believe that everyone has the right to basic dental care and treatment. We offer NHS dental patients a large range of treatments. Where patients are asked to contribute to cost, we do this in line with the government’s set prices and we make this as transparent as possible. We also offer options to spread dental costs and help wherever we can with patients’ payments.

Private Dental Patients

Cosmetic dental treatments such as teeth whitening, or dental veneers are not eligible under the NHS because they are not considered essential to your dental health. In these cases, you are welcome to remain as an NHS patient and pay privately for the treatment that you want.

Sometimes a patient might not be entitled to NHS registration. For private dental patients, your dental health is still our priority. Our professional team will work with you to provide the best options to form a detailed treatment plan. We operate a transparent pricing policy and you are welcome to compare private pricing along with the national average.

  • Regular Check-Up. This is the most common reason for patients to come and see us. You should be visiting your dentist every 6 to 12 months to ensure that your teeth, gums and mouth are healthy. We work in a preventative way to combat tooth decay and gum disease in the hope that we can prevent the need for costly and complex problems from occurring later 
  • FillingsIf you get a cavity in your tooth it can be painful and will need to be fixed using a filling. The amalgam or silver fillings are available as part of the NHS service. We can also offer white fillings privately which naturally blend in with your other teeth  
  • Root CanalIf the blood or nerve supply to your tooth becomes infected it can be painful. Your dentist can remove the infection from the root canal to prevent it from spreading 
  • Periodontics. This area of dentistry involves looking specifically at diseases and conditions which affect the gums and supporting structures of your teeth. Our periodontal specialist dentists can treat mild cases of gum disease including gingivitis and inflammation of the gums through to periodontitis which is the more severe form of gum disease 
  • EmergenciesDental emergencies are common, affecting 1 in 4 people during their lifetime. Whether you have chipped a tooth, suffer with constant toothache or have a painful abscessthen you can expect to see us for an emergency dental appointment within 24 hours. 
  • Hygienist. You should see your hygienist every 6 to 12 months as this forms an essential part in keeping your teeth and gums healthy. Your hygienist will focus on your oral hygiene and the prevention and treatment for gum disease. 
  • Dental extractions. Whether you have a failing tooth that needs to be removed, or you need to have a tooth extracted as part of  planned treatment for dental implants or orthodontic work, our professional team will expertly remove a tooth carefully and quickly causing you the least amount of pain and fuss.
