Welcome to a relaxed and friendly practice where patients come first


At Marlborough Dental Centre we take great pride in offering a high standard of treatment to patients of all ages.

Our aim is to make your visit as pleasant as possible by taking a personal approach and getting to know you and your health. 

 

We also pay special attention to our younger patients, putting time aside to teach them how best to care for their smiles.

 

Our treatment rooms are fully equipped with the latest in dental technology, enabling us to offer a full range of high quality dental care and cosmetic treatments. With our experienced, friendly team we are dedicated to providing you with the highest quality service in dental care. 

 

With four modern surgeries, our premises are equipped to create a comfortable and relaxing atmosphere. We have ground floor facilities which are suitable for disabled patients, including those in wheelchairs.

 



Our practice is now open but we just wanted to be clear that this may not be business as

usual. 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. Please be patient.

 

- 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. You will also find some in the reception area and other places in the practice for you to use as needed.
  • We ask you to wear a mask when entering the practice.
  • We will ask you to wait outside the practice until your appointment so please don’t arrive early
  • 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, as well as to reduce the number of patients in the reception area at any one

time.

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.
  • Patients should come wearing a mask if possible or be prepared to wear one.
