***Please be aware that Dentistry in Wales has been put on RED ALERT***
The Welsh Government has put in place the following measures to protect the public and the dental workforce from COVID-19. From IMMEDIATE EFFECT:
In response to the coronavirus pandemic, dental services have been reduced in line with Welsh Government guidance.
As a result we are no longer carrying out routine examinations and procedures. Most dental procedures generate an aerosol which can potentially spread COVID-19 across the room.
If you have an urgent dental problem between 9am to 5pm Monday to Friday you can still contact us and we will still be able to give professional advice. Please use the Livechat box to send us a message and we will be able to intercept it immediately from home. We will then contact you as soon as possible. For evenings, weekends or bank holidays and the problem cannot wait, please ring Out of Hours helpline 02920444500.
You will be assessed by our dedicated professionals and we may offer limited treatment in certain appropriate cases. We are currently on a daily rota with 5 other local practices in Cardiff West for emergency treatment. We can also remotely prescribe antibiotics if we judge it appropriate.
It should be noted that a genuine dental emergency involves either spreading infection, severe toothache that is not responsive to painkillers, severe dental trauma or uncontrollable bleeding from the mouth. Unfortunately some toothaches or broken teeth will regrettably have to be managed with painkillers only - unless you accept an extraction and it is clear that it would be uncomplicated. In severe cases a referral to the University Dental Hospital may be appropriate.
We thank you for your patience and cooperation in reducing pressure on other services that will be under extreme pressure in these testing times.
The practice was established by Tim's parents, Rob & Sheila Phillips, who have since retired from dentistry. In 2008 Tim came to Fairwater Green to take over the running of the practice and over the years has developed it into the four surgeries.
Extensive refurbishments were carried out to establish two additional new dental surgeries with the latest equipment and disabled access.
