Covid-19 update - Tuesday 3rd November
We are pleased to announce that we are able to stay open during the national lockdown which starts on Thursday
You can be assured that we have rigorous procedures in place to make our practice safe for your visit.
We are continuing to allow extra time for all appointments and staggering arrivals so that there is minimal interaction between patients.
Thank you to all of our loyal patients who have been so accommodating in waiting for us to work our way through the backlog from the initial lockdown.
We are still needing to give priority to patients with urgent care needs and apologise if we haven’t managed to see you yet.
In order for everyone to stay safe please do not come to the practice if you or anyone in your household/bubble have any symptoms of COVID-19, if you have been told to isolate by a Test & Trace caller or have received a notification from your app.
We are sorry but we are still unable to accept any new patients.
Please take the time to read our Covid 19 Pre Appointment Information here.
Brush twice a day for 2 minutes. Make sure you spit, rather than rinse. This will help strengthen the enamel.
Clean between teeth daily to remove plaque from areas where the toothbrush can’t reach.
Eat a balanced diet. Limit snacking and keep off the toffees! Choose healthy options to limit tooth decay.
Drink juices through a straw and preferably keep to meal times.
Drink plenty of water and keep hydrated!

WHO ARE WE?
Welcome to our family run dental practice
Established in 1992 by husband and wife team Mark Milnthorpe, and Susan Steer, the White Cottage Dental Practice aims to provide high quality preventative dental care for the whole family. We were joined in 2014 by Ester Mulders who trained in Holland and has been a general dental practitioner in the UK for over 18 years.
We are passionate about teaching our patients how to maintain a healthy mouth, stressing the link with their general health and our Hygienist Heather Lonergan plays a vital role in this.
We are also pleased that Jasvinder Jugdev is available to place implants on-site to avoid the need for our patients to travel to another practice for treatment.
We have modern air conditioned surgeries with digital x-rays and intr-oral cameras. We also have a dedicated decontamination room which conforms to best practice guidelines.
We are committed in our practice to providing our patients with the highest standard of care and want to make your visits a pleasant experience.
Regular visits will help you to keep your mouth healthy, free of pain and infection and can improve your appearance.
