"As a former professional model, I understand the need to look one’s best and that first impressions count. Nothing is more important than that ‘white smile’. I was introduced to Stephanie at Cheshire Dental Centre through a mutual friend who recommended her highly. The forty-five minute procedure was completely painless and produced amazing results which have lasted. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend Cheshire Dental Centre to anybody."

"The surgery is a breath of fresh air. Light and modern surroundings with the Friendly and professional staff that don’t breathe last night’s garlic in your face whilst giving your teeth that all important check and double check. It’s so refreshing to not have a dentist who doesn’t think ‘don’t worry this won’t hurt me one bit, might you, but not me. All that latest technology, procedures and professionally trained dentists mean I am happy to go out of my way in preference of their practice and the cherry on the top is they have parking !"

Nancy Pemberton

"When I was first referred to The Cheshire Dental Centre. I was very apprehensive about the whole process of having a dental implant. However, I cannot stress how pleasantly surprised I was about the whole experience. The dentist immediately reassured me and although, the process was going to be long and complex, the various stages of the procedure were explained to me very clearly and I was encouraged to ask questions if I was unsure of anything. I felt confident that I was in the best hands from day one. I am delighted with the finished result which is a perfect match and looks just like a normal tooth. The after-care treatment was also exemplary. Throughout the whole process I was always confident that I was in very safe hands. It was probably the best money I have ever spent."

Karen Simpson

"I visited Cheshire Dental Centre with extreme toothache and was seen as an emergency patient. I was very nervous but was dealt with in a caring and professional manner by all the staff and re-assured that my treatment wouldsolve the problem as quickly as possible. I am delighted with the result and would recommend Cheshire Dental Centre."

Sakina Smedley

"Having suffered for a long time with ill-fitting dentures I was reluctant to visit the dentist due to my age and health problems but the team were wonderful and discussed my treatment plan fully reassuring me that I would get the best result possible. I had several extractions which all happened painlessly and once my new dentures were fitted I was delighted and can’t thank the Cheshire Dental Centre Team enough."

Peter Jones

"I received treatment at the practice and am very happy with the service that I received"

Covid-19 and your care

We have now received clear guidance as to what dental procedures we can safely carry out and at what stages during the pandemic.

Below is a summary of the guidance as we understand it, although this may modify over the next few days as some small inconsistencies are clarified.

The government has set five different risk levels for the pandemic 1-5 (low to high), although this changes on a daily basis.

The treatments that we can carry out safely in dental practice will change with the risk level.

Treatments are significantly limited at level 4.

During the next few weeks, we will attempt to contact each patient that has contacted us with a significant dental problem during lockdown, and we hope to book an assessment appointment for those patients in the week commencing 8th June.

Practice doors will be locked at level 3, 4 and 5. Entry to the practice will be limited to pre-booked appointments.

There will be very clear criteria provided in due course as what is required before arriving at the practice, and what the procedure will be upon arrival. We will endeavour to ensure that each person knows exactly what to expect at their visit as this will be quite different to what you have been used to.

The appointment diary will be structured to take into consideration those patients who are shielding, may have underlying medical issues and so on.

The first week is expected to be a slow start as we ensure that the new protocols are working effectively for everyone’s safety. These protocols will be audited and modified until required.

At level 4 we should be able to carry out the following:

Dental assessment (initially restricted to patients who have current urgent need, or did and contacted us during lockdown).

X rays but only for patients who tolerate them well.

TEMPORARY re cementation of crowns. (We cannot dry the tooth effectively enough to cement a crown permanently with the restrictions we face).

Fabrication or repair of removable dentures.

Simple dental extractions. If a tooth breaks, it is probable we will have to leave the roots in place until we are at a lower level of risk. Naturally, we will assess the risk very carefully prior to treatment.

Tightening of loose dental implants if possible, without using a high-speed handpiece (drill).

Temporary fillings.

Draining of a swelling/abscess.

Provision of antibiotics.

Trimming of sharp orthodontic wires (not reliable re cementation of loose brackets, or replacement of missing brackets).

Treatment is only to be offered after careful assessment.

Cosmetic orthodontics

Cheshire Dental Centre provide many of these treatments. We may now be able to progress some of our Quick Straight Teeth cases. We will be in touch with each patient shortly, but please allow us to contact you; we hope that it is understandable that we will be prioritising patients with urgent dental need.

The PPE (personal protective equipment) requirements for the above are not too onerous, and we will not look too different to normal. As you are aware, the cross-infection control at Cheshire Dental Centre has always been exemplary and one of our top priorities.

Although we have been organised with the new PPE guidelines well in advance there may be the occasional time where we are awaiting stock. All practices are attempting to source the necessary PPE we need to keep you and us safe, but supplies are scarce and consequently very expensive.
