1st June 2020 Re-Opening Soon Letter to Patients We have been keeping a close watch on the situation with respects to the Coronavirus pandemic and making week by week assessments on the safety of dentistry and the guidance and regulations that come from various dental bodies (see below) Whilst we have been temporarily closed there have been a few Urgent Dental Care Centres that the NHS has provided for emergency dental care. Fortunately, we have only had a handful of emergencies at our practice and all these patients have been managed with Advice, Analgesics, and Antibiotics where necessary. Whilst we make plans to re-open, we must still put the interests and safety of staff and patients as a top priority. We will need to screen patients, and assess the urgency of the dental treatment. We also need to ensure that we have appropriate stock levels of good quality PPE (Personal Protective Equipment). Due to the proximity...

Celebrations! 2018 marked the 20th anniversary of a long working relationship between Chris, Leigh and Julie and to celebrate the team had their Christmas dinner with the stars. Chris , Leigh and Julie began working together back in 1998 in Boscombe, then continued over to Highcliffe when Chris joined his father also a dentist until finally settling into Ringwood 3 years ago. Christmas dinner was served on the top floor of Portsmouth's Spinnaker Tower, to the dismay of our receptionist Julie, who has a fear of heights. But with the support of her team she withstood the 21 secs lift ride to the top and enjoyed the spectacular views across the Solent. After a touching speech by the boss we proceeded downstairs where we all danced the night away.                Fun was had by all, with some standard dressing up involved!!             ...
