Update published by Cabinet Office: “National Lockdown: Stay at Home” (Published 4 January 2021)
Dentistry is an essential medical service, Kimberley Park Dental Practice will remain open and continue to provide urgent and non-urgent services during the current lockdown. Changes have been made at the practice to ensure we can continue to provide essential care safely for you and our dental team.
We are having to prioritise people with the most urgent need, however we can now offer our patients check ups and hygienist appointments if you are a registered patient. If you need dental care, please contact the practice either by phone or email to seek help. You will be given advice or offered an appointment . The range of treatments available may differ to what was offered previously.
Please DO NOT enter the practice unless you have been advised to, this will ensure the practice can continue to provide essential care safely.
We thank you for your continued support at this time .

New NHS patients
Due to reduced budget and increased demand. Unfortunately, Kimberley Park Dental Practice is currently unable to register new NHS patients.
For the NHS dental waiting list, please call: 0333 405 0290
Existing NHS patients
We are currently experiencing a high demand for appointments so routine non-urgent care is still being delayed. Those already requiring treatment will be contacted with appointments as soon as they become available.
Practice Plan / Denplan Patients
For the moment, routine dental appointments should be postponed unless completely necessary. When it is appropriate for us to return to routine dentistry, we will contact you to organise an appointment.
We anticipate an increase in dental disease as many patient diets and behaviours have changed during lockdown. When we are able to fully resume normal dentistry, we expect that most patients will require additional treatment to become stable again.
We recommend that you continue to pay into your dental plan as any corrective dental treatment needed following covid-19 will be covered.
As valued plan members, we have compensated for any annual membership fee increases, we are able to guarantee this price freeze until April 2021.
If you decide to cancel your membership, you will lose access to your dental cover. We are happy to continue to see you as a private patient, however, any treatment needed will be charged as fee per item.
Any outstanding treatment will need to be completed before you are able to restart your plan membership.
Please note, membership fees are calculated based on the amount of previous dental treatment at the time of joining (e.g. number of current fillings etc.) If you have received treatment after your plan membership started, when the new cover is calculated, your plan category and monthly membership could increase and it is not possible for us to offer you, your pre-cancelation membership rate.
Kimberley Park Dental Practice will freeze all membership fee increases and guarantee current prices until January 2022.
