Latest Clinical News re COVID-19:
Monday 8th June update:
Beech House is now re-opening, providing a restricted range of dental treatments. If you have called with problems over the last couple of months, you will be contacted in the coming weeks to arrange an appointment. Due to the ongoing pandemic, a number of extra measures have been put in place (see video below). There are also links to several video links on this page which go through how best to look after your oral health during the COVID-19 pandemic, especially whilst access to the dentist is not as easy as before.
Friday 05 June 2020
We are back on Monday! We have to begin slowly & this is for safety so please work with us & trust us. Dr Bromiley and Dr Hoggins will be contacting patients on Monday to schedule appointments for this week. We will be contacting those with urgent need and pain. We need to carry out telephone triage with you before we can invite you in to make sure we create as safe an environment as we can for yourselves & our staff.
If you are shielded or vulnerable please consider the risk - we are happy to discuss this with you & try & plan to help.We have installed an online form completions package allowing you to fill in your medical history forms from home - this helps as it reduces your time in the practice & the need to chat (it makes a difference to risk!) Please help us by doing this.
Drs Hussain, Adams, White, Kaur and Zafar will also be in touch - we need to integrate return to service in a controlled way for safety.
See our Coronavirus page for our Information for our Patients Leaflet - it will provide lots of useful information for you.
We look forward to being backThe Team at Beech House Dental
Thursday 4th June 2020 Update
We have received guidance from the Chief Dental Officer with an updated Standard Operating Protocol. We are reviewing this as we write. As we have been a Hub for the area we already have the systems in place so need to check & verify them for your safety.
Tuesday 2nd June 2020 Update
Today we have received guidance from the British Dental Association & we are cross-checking our compliance however we are still, waiting for the important guidance from the Chief Dental Officer. We have drafted an updated information sheet for patients who do visit our practice as this is where most of the changes will be.

Monday's Update 1 June 2020
Good morning, we hope you are well. As some of you may be aware we have been the nominated 'DENTAL HUB' practice for the Ripon area seeing urgent patients so are staff are already trained in most areas and we made the required changes in April. Our staff have been working throughout the outbreak.
We are awaiting 2 sets of further guidance about the resumption of dentistry from 08 June; one we have received and one we are still waiting for. As soon as we do we will update our policies, check them and then be in a situation to start allocating appointments. We are working hard to make sure the practice is as safe as can be for yourselves and our staff.
There are patients with treatments outstanding and patients who have conditions requiring treatment. We will do our best to be fair and see you as soon as we can.
If you have any questions please ring or drop us an email.
In the interim, if you have problems please call by telephone on 01765 604200.
