Dear patients, we have kept our emergency services open as long as possible but unfortunately due to the government’s request in the increasing severity of the situation, we are now closing our emergency services in-clinic from today until further notice, due to the COVID-19 virus pandemic. Our main priority now is to keep our team, patients and their families safe.

Please be assured we are here for you and will continue to stay in contact throughout.

1. We will remain available to you for telephone advice on 07473162937, 10 am to 5 pm and via text at all other times.

2. New Acute Dental Pain Centres are being set up – contact details to be seen in person at King’s College are T. 0203 299 5608 for Adults and T. 0203 299 3052 for children.

Our thoughts go out to all those who have been affected by the COVID-19 pandemic.
