Covid-19 update - Monday 10th August
We have been open for 2 months now and have settled into our new operating procedures with strict hygiene and patient flow measures to keep our staff and patients safe.
We are still only able to offer appointments to a fraction of the number of people that we would normally see. Our priority is patients with urgent needs but we are also working our way slowly through the backlog of those not seen during lockdown.
Because of this we still need to defer routine visits (check ups and hygienist) for about 3 months and we are currently sending out letters with new appointments.
If you are having any problems then please do not hesitate to contact us by telephone or by email at email@example.com. We will then triage you and arrange a suitable time and date for you to come in.
Thank you for your patience and understanding during this challenging time.
WE ARE SORRY BUT WE ARE NOT ACCEPTING ANY NEW PATIENTS AT PRESENT
OUR PHONE LINES ARE VERY BUSY AT THE MOMENT. IF YOU CAN’T GET THROUGH PLEASE EMAIL US AND WE WILL GET BACK TO YOU.
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.
