Covid 19 update July 19th 2021
To all our patients and visitors, Weston Orthodontic Centre would like to thank you for your continued support at this time.
The safety of patients, visitors and staff is of paramount importance to us. From the 19th of July we will be following guidance and advice from Public Health England and the British Dental Association which means although wider Covid restrictions will end in many settings they will remain in place in health care settings in order to protect both patients and staff.
What does this mean?
* All patients will continue to be triaged when they arrive at the practice.
*All of our staff will continue to wear masks and personal protective equipment at all times and we request anyone entering the building wears a mask/face covering.
*To assist with social distancing and to limit the number people coming into the practice at one time we are asking where possible patients come in on their own.
*At present our waiting areas remain closed so when attending an appointment please wait at the entrance of the building until a member of staff comes to greet you.
*If you have been asked to self isolate remember you cannot attend your appointment, please phone us to rearrange.
Thank you again for your co operation.
We currently have a vacancy for a part time qualified dental nurse ideally with radiography. This position is for maternity cover. Please email email@example.com if you are interested.
COVID 19 January Lockdown Update
Following yesterdays announcement we can confirm that we remain open as normal for all appointments.
If you have any questions please call us on 01934 429052.
COVID-19 and Lockdown Update 2nd November
The safety of both our patients and staff is of paramount importance to us and has been during this pandemic. We would like to thank all our patients and visitors for their patience during this difficult time.
We are continuing to see and treat our patients under strict guidance. Check here or our Facebook page for updates.
If you do attend the clinic, we are asking everyone to respect our social distancing rules.
We are trying to reduce the footfall into the practice and would therefore prefer it if patients come into the building on their own for appointments (unless a parent is needed for consent).
All our patients and visitors are routinely screened and are asked relevant COVID-19 questions when they attend.
Our waiting rooms still remain closed and all patients are asked to wait outside the building until the nurse collects you. You will then be taken to and from the surgery at the time of your appointment. With the colder months on their way we would recommend that you arrive at the time of your appointment as we are unable to have people standing inside.
Unfortunately due to the fact that we are having to run to really strict times due to the social distancing rules, it is very difficult for us to accommodate lateness- therefore if you arrive late you may have to be rebooked.
Our toilets are also out of use at the moment (unless it is an emergency) and there is nowhere for patients to brush their teeth.
We would ask everybody that comes in to wear a face covering and you will be asked to hand sanitise upon arrival. Please bring limited belongings with you.
In the meantime if you have a problem and need some advice please contact us on 01934 429052.

What our patients say
Helpful professional and friendly staff. Many thanks for being patient yesterday with a little anxious lady. Andrew is a true gent, took time out to explain and also listen to my many questions. Much appreciated by myself and my daughter. Looking forward to the future and many happy smiles.
Excellent staff (as always here). Some people say it's a bit pricey but your true smile is worth much more than the braces anyway. Fantastic care and I'm looking forward to seeing the finished results (just had braces fitted today).
Excellent staff, friendly and helpful. My daughter has braces at the moment, from the first time we went there they have put our minds at rest and gave us any information we have needed. My daughter is having a good experience with braces and they have had a big part in that. Thank you.
It's always been something I wanted to have done. I didn't know how good a cosmetic brace could look. I am really pleased.
