St Helens Dental Practice Reopens on Monday 8th June

As the country is still trying to control the Corona Virus, it will not be business as usual for at least the next few weeks. The treatments you are offered may be different to those you received before, depending on staff and equipment available. It will take some time before services return to what you previously experienced as normal. Our patients have been amazing and very understanding – we ask now that you bear with us whist we try to catch up on emergencies and learn to operate within enhanced cross infection procedures.

Infection control has been a top priority in Dentistry for many years now and you may have seen this during your visits to our surgery. Our infection control processes are made so that when you receive care, it’s both safe and comfortable. We want to tell you about the infection control procedures we follow in our practice to keep patients and staff safe.

Our practice follows infection control guidelines made by the governing bodies. We are up-to-date on new guidance that has been issued. We do this to make sure that our infection control procedures are current and adhere to recommendations.

You may see some changes when it is time for your next appointment. We made these changes to help protect our patients and staff. For example:

  • Our practice will communicate with you beforehand to ask some screening questions. You’ll be asked those same questions again at your appointment
  • We have hand sanitiser that we will ask you to use when you enter the practice.
  • We no longer offer magazines, children’s toys and so forth, since those items are difficult to clean and disinfect.
  • Appointments will be managed to allow for social distancing between patients. That might mean that you’re offered fewer options for scheduling your appointment.

We will do our best to allow greater time between patients to reduce waiting times for you, in the next few weeks we will not be using the reception area of waiting room but directing patients straight to surgery via external doors. How you can help:

  • With the exception of children and patients with carers, patients should come alone
  • A distance of at least 2 metres must be observed if another patient is present in the dental practice
  • Payment should be made by card where possible
  • Staff will not shake your hand
  • If you show symptoms following appointment booking, you should contact the practice by phone
  •  Please do not arrive early to the practice. If necessary, you should wait outside the practice
  • Please do not arrive without an appointment.

The whole team is looking forward to welcoming you back to the practice very soon, it will be different for a while, but if we all work hard at social distancing, the virus WILL be beaten!

What we offer


We offer the latest in modern dentistry to give you a healthy, happy smile. 

We are able to offer a range of cosmetic dental treatments, whether you want a complete transformation, or would just like to give your smile a lift. With digital smile design technology, a simple photograph is all that is required to be able to show you within minutes what you could look like following a makeover.

Having missing teeth can knock your confidence, and affect the way you eat and speak. Replacing missing teeth can: 

  • Restore your smile
  • Restore the ability to properly chew and speak
  • Maintain the shape of your face
  • Distribute the forces in your bite properly by replacing missing teeth
  • Prevent remaining teeth from drifting out of position

Hygiene therapy
We care about the overall health of your mouth. At each Dental Health Check your dentist will assess the health of your mouth, teeth and gums. If necessary we will refer you to one of our three friendly hygienists. Maintaining a healthy mouth is not only beneficial for your teeth and gums, but can be beneficial to your general health. We want to help you in every way we can.

Oral hygiene instruction
Our dedicated team will take time to give you tailored advice on the best products and techniques to maintain a healthy dentition. This may also include advice about diet and smoking cessation

Headaches, temporomandibular joint disfunction (TMD). In some cases, headaches can be of dental origin. All our dentists have completed an advanced course on Occlusal Equilibration. This looks at how your teeth bite together – if there is a problem with how your teeth meet you can get pain, clicking, headaches or tooth wear. If you suffer from any of these symptoms we can help. About a quarter of headaches may be caused by teeth that don’t meet together properly.
