COVID-19 Update 8th June 2020
Amersham Hill Dental Clinic - Dental Emergencies Only

As from the 8th June 2020 the Surgery will be open in a limited capacity. We are currently seeing Emergency patients for Assessments and Advice only. Ensuring the safety of our patients and staff is our priority and of upmost importance. We have been working hard over the last few weeks preparing for re-opening the practice, however due to lack of available PPE we will be operating in a limited capacity until we have a good reliable supply of these essential items. We would like to inform you of the changes we need to implement to reduce the risk to patients, their families and to our staff. Due to recent guidelines the appointment times will be extended and therefore we will be seeing fewer patients per day, so please be patient with us. Staff will also be wearing masks, face shields and a disposable gown or apron (PPE) depending on the procedure you are having.

If you have a dental emergency, please phone

01494 526392

We want to reassure our patients the health and safety of our patients and staff at Amersham Hill Dental Clinic is our top priority.

We are closely monitoring the Coronavirus (COVID-19) following Government and Public Health England guidelines. More information and advice can be found on the following NHS website

Care at the clinic

Amersham Hill Dental Clinic provides dental care under:

Excellence in Dentistry

We use all the latest digital technology and materials in private treatment options where each treatment plan is bespoke and carefully structured to offer the very best of 21st Century Dentistry with 'time to care'. Please discuss option this with your dental surgeon.

For more general care there are three choices:

Independent Dentistry

This is then name we give to our services for patients who want an improved range of treatment with the comfort and flexibility that independent contract offers. We are of the opinion that our independent dentistry offers the best 'value for money' dental service in the High Wycombe area.

Denplan

With Denplan you normally pay a monthly fee and have all your treatment covered. The only exception to this is where any lab work is necessary. The cost of the laboratory work is paid by the patient. To become a Denplan patient, we normally carry out an assessment to inform you of the fee scale you will join. The normal cost of this is £38. If you wish to join the scheme please contact our reception team and we will organise the rest.

Dental Care Plan

This is an in-house capitation scheme that offers similar benefits to Denplan. For some patients this may be more cost effective. The assessment fee for this is £38.00 and you will then be advised regarding the best way forwards.
