Dear Patients

While there are changes to covid restrictions on the outside we kindly request that when attending the practice that you wear a face mask for your safety and the safety of others. We still ask where possible that appointments are made over the telephone as we are not currently offering a walk in service.

We would like to advise you that appointments for routine care are slightly  longer than normal with a average wait time of 10 weeks

We do not currently have the capacity to see new patients, we do however have a waiting list. For patients who would like to be added please contact our receptionist.

We do offer emergency appointment, however these are limited and we advise to call at 8.30 am to book.

Emergency appointments cover: Pain that cannot be managed by pain killers, facial swelling and bleeding. These appointments are not for routine care.

We do also offer guidance on managing dental care at home, view our booklet here.

Please remember we are still here for you if you have any concerns about your dental health. You can easily reach us on 01335 348694 Monday-Friday 9-5.

If you have a dental emergency outside these hours please call NHS 111

The team at TLC 4 Smiles

Welcome to TLC 4 Smiles

We are an NHS practice offering a traditional service in a modern environment

We take a sympathetic and understanding approach to nervous patients and understand that all people are different and so are their anxieties. It can be difficult to pluck up the courage to call the dentist (especially if you have not been in years). When you call us however, you’ll get a caring and friendly voice and when you come in and see us, we’ll do everything we can to make you feel as comfortable as possible. Although we have a modern outlook and keep up to date with the latest developments, we never lose sight of the traditional professional values that our patients expect. We take great pride in the high standard our practice offers and our patients expect. We are committed to achieving excellent dental health for you and your family in a comfortable and safe environment, helping maintain healthy teeth and gums, and an attractive smile.
