We care about your oral health
IMPORTANT: COVID-19 CORONAVIRUS
In light of the outbreak of COVID-19 Coronavirus, from Monday 30th March 2020, Duston Dental Practice are unable to carry out face-to-face dental procedures for the foreseeable future. Dental procedures using drills and ultrasonics create a large amount of aerosol spray in the environment. With the current virus outbreak, this presents a higher risk of viral transmission to our staff and potentially other patients and therefore non-emergency procedures have been temporarily banned by the Care Quality Commission, NHS England and the General Dental Council. This policy is in line with current advice from the Chief Dental Officer of NHS England.
Routine procedures (lost crowns, chipped fillings, chipped teeth, cosmetic problems), will be rebooked at a later date but please be aware that this may change as we continue to monitor the situation.
During normal weekday working hours, we are holding triage clinics at our St Crispin site in St Crispin Local Centre, Kent Road, NN5 4DR and our Main Road site is closed. Patients who present with dental pain, bleeding from an extracted tooth socket, swellings or trauma should phone the practice on 01604 753312 to be given telephone advice. You will be asked a series of questions including to ascertain your COVID-19 status in order to better direct your treatment pathway. Outside of normal working hours, NHS patients can telephone NHS 111 to access the out of hours care; Our Denplan patients who have an active subscription can also telephone 07506 342530 out of hours to be connected to an on-call dentist.
The NHS in Northamptonshire is creating urgent dental treatment centres and these are envisaged to commence operation from Thursday 9th April. In emergency cases, where dental treatment cannot be avoided, referrals can be made to an urgent dental treatment centre by your dentist.
Please continue to assume that all routine appointments at Duston Dental Practice are cancelled and we will also try to inform you by telephone, SMS or email that your appointment cannot go ahead.
We will update this page in due course when new advice is distributed.
Thank you for your understanding and as our valued patients, we wish you and all of your families well during this difficult time.

Currently, the practice looks after 20,000 patients, employing over 20 members of staff, 9 dentists and 2 hygienists.
