19/03/2020 – Practice COVID-19 Update

In line with the government and health authority guidelines, for the foreseeable future we will only be seeing emergency patients at the practice in light of the need to avoid social contact where possible to reduce the spread of the COVID-19 virus.

If you need to contact the practice because you have a dental emergency or for any other reason, please do so by telephone 0161 4455459 or email admin@didsburydentalhealth.com

We appreciate that some of you will be on payment plans and we recognise that some of you may have your routine examinations and clean appointments delayed for a few weeks. We are looking at how we can accommodate this for you going forward but we would like to advise those patients on plans that you are also covered for any emergency treatment which would otherwise cost you £70 for a visit plus treatment on top, if you needed to be seen outside of your plan. Anybody wishing to speak to us about this further is welcome to telephone and speak to the Practice Managers: Sue or Alison or to one of the receptionists, thank you.

We hope that this situation will resolve very quickly and we appreciate that for some, it will be a very stressful time. We do hope that it will only be for a short time and we look forward to seeing you all very soon and continuing as normal and we hope that you will all stay well.
