Dear patients

We are now over 2 months into lockdown and the whole team hopes you are keeping healthy and well and managing to stay in touch with your loved ones regularly. We are still here at TLC 4 Smiles and are looking forward to seeing you all soon.

We are still being advised by our regulatory bodies to remain closed and await further guidance on when we might be able to reopen our doors. We have been working hard over the past few weeks to ensure that the practice is as safe as it can be when we do open up again. We have been sourcing the personal protective equipment (PPE) that we feel will be needed in order to keep both you and our team safe when we resume oral health checks and dental treatment again.

The practice will need to operate slightly differently (and we may look slightly different in our PPE!) when we return, but we are the same team you have come to know at TLC 4 Smiles. We will be in touch again shortly with what you can expect on your first visit back to the practice.

If you have dental problems please click on the link to our advice booklet on managing dental care at home. We are also creating a ‘waiting list’ and would ask any patients who are currently experiencing any dental problems to contact us by emailing, We can then add you to this list to ensure you are seen promptly upon our return.

We will of course keep you updated if when we can resume services.

Please remember, we are still here for you! If you have any concerns about your dental health, please do not suffer in silence. You can reach us easily by telephone on (01335 348694) Monday to Friday 9-5 and we’ll be happy to offer any advice.

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

All the very best from your 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.
