Latest Update Regarding Dental Care at Lyndhurst
Good news! We remain open.
We have been successfully looking after patients since the end of June 2020, providing a full range of treatments in a Covid secure environment.
We take the safety of our patients and staff very seriously, undertaking many extra measures such as pre-treatment assessment and social distancing, as well as the appropriate high level of personal protection and other enhanced infection prevention procedures (see below). This has instilled a high level of confidence and extremely positive feedback.
NEW PATIENTS will receive a warm welcome. We ask that all patients refer to the New Advice Letter.

Latest Protocols following change in Covid Restrictions on 19th July 2021
Despite the change in national Covid restrictions on 19th July, there remain many uncertainties and concerns regarding the measures that need to be taken within public buildings.
While these uncertainties remain, as a medical establishment with a constant throughput of patients, we have decided to maintain the ‘Gold Standard’ of measures that we have had in place since reopening in June 2020.
Therefore, all patients, staff and visitors are required to continue to wear a mask within the practice premises.
We have worked hard behind the scenes in preparation, in order to ensure a safe working environment for our patients and staff.
This involves a whole host of measures which include having the correct level of Personal Protection Equipment (PPE) and ensuring a safe patient journey through the practice.
One of the most important measures that we have undertaken is to invest in equipment which will certify Lyndhurst as a ‘Clean Air Facility’.
Latest Technology at Lyndhurst
You will see below the details of two pieces of the latest technology available which ensure a clean air environment for patients and staff.
Firstly, in the waiting room we shall have the Radic8 VK103 – please click on the link for further details – https://radic8.com/products/vk103/
Ajax extra-oral suction system

The care that we offer
PerIodontal (Gum) Care
Root Canal therapy
At Lyndhurst, we have had a strong philosophy of care for many years, which has adapted to include advances in clinical techniques.
This approach is based on two main concepts:-
The Lyndhurst team is dedicated to helping our patients prevent dental deterioration. Whilst the main responsibility for dental care lies with the patient, we approach this together. Our experienced team of specialists and hygienists are integral to this approach, advising and encouraging our patients to maintain healthy mouths on a daily basis.
MINIMALLY INVASIVE DENTISTRY
Our aim is for our patients to keep their teeth for life. Minimally invasive dentistry is the practice of using materials and techniques (particularly techniques using bonded materials) to ensure that we are as kind to teeth as possible, saving as much tooth tissue as possible to achieve the desired result.
Although the expression ‘Minimally Invasive Dentistry’ is relatively recent, this is an approach that we have used at Lyndhurst since the practice was established by Fred Porter in 1975!
