Lydd Dental Care is open and safe
Lydd Dental Care will still be open during this third national lockdown. We’d like you to keep your appointments if you have one and want to reassure you that our practice is a safe place to be.
We have excellent infection control procedures along with a robust triaging policy to ensure the safety of both patients and staff. Our dedicated team are very familiar with the infection control procedures being used to manage the virus as they are much the same as those that have been applied by our practice for many years. (Our team has been training in infection control procedures for decades).
We have all the necessary personal protective equipment (PPE) and will continue to follow national guidelines and standards.
If you are worried about your attendance, please contact us to discuss your concerns and we can always postpone your treatment till a later date.
We continue to recommend that patients in the high-risk category for COVID-19 delay non-essential treatment until further guidance has been given by the relevant authorities.
If you call to make an appointment, you will be asked some screening questions. You’ll be asked those same questions again at your appointment.
When you arrive:
We advise that you wear a mask at all times while inside the dental practice and only remove your mask at the request of one of our team.
Please do not arrive more than 5 minutes early for an appointment due to social distancing guidelines.
Appointments will be managed to allow for social distancing between patients. That might mean that you’re offered fewer options for scheduling your appointment.
As you enter the building you will need to use the alcohol disinfectant rub to disinfectant your hands.
The treatment rooms will be prepared prior to your appointment with all surfaces disinfected after each patient. We have sourced PPE and unlike the start of the Pandemic (March 2020 in the UK), there is no shortage.
We can assure you that we will continue to maintain high standards of cross infection control.
Stay safe and please contact us if you have any questions.
Lydd Dental Care has been established for 30+ years and has recently been taken over by new management committed t0 providing high quality of care to both NHS patients as well as emergency dental care.
We are a committed team of dentists and dental nurses dedicated to providing high quality dental care to our patients.
Whether you are looking for a simple check-up or to improve your smile, we are here to help you. We also offer treatments that are not available under the NHS including cosmetic treatments, for example tooth whitening, stain removal and tooth polishing, sedation for nervous patients and treatment for fine lines and wrinkles.
Our dental team provide comprehensive preventative care together with a wide range of dental treatments. Your oral health is of paramount importance to us and we strive to ensure all our patients know exactly how best to look after their teeth and gums. Dental treatment can make some people anxious, but with us you are in safe hands.
Dental Hygienists provide scale and polish treatments to ensure your teeth are thoroughly clean. If appropriate they can apply preventative treatments to help keep your teeth strong. Some of the treatments available include the following:

Applying preventative treatments to help keep your teeth strong
Treatment of gum disease
Your dentist may recommend replacing part of a tooth that has been lost through wear and tear or decay with a filling. Fillings are made from a number of materials, and your dentist will discuss your options with you before starting treatment.
You may require a partial denture to replace gaps in your teeth or a full denture to replace all of your original teeth. If you have missing teeth, your dentist will discuss all the options in detail with you.
When a cavity is large and extends into the inner part of the tooth containing the nerves, your dentist may recommend a root canal treatment (referred to as endodontic treatment).
Tooth whitening is a treatment option to brighten teeth
It is not suitable for everyone. Your dentist is best placed to advise whether the treatment is right for you and the results you can expect.
When it comes to your smile, precision and predictability are crucial for a comfortable and efficient experience. Invisalign clear aligners are made of Smart Track material which provides greater than 75% improvement in overall tooth movement predictability.
Each aligner change is a small step towards your big transformation, moving your teeth comfortably and efficiently towards their final position.
Dental implants provide an alternative to dentures and conventional bridgework. They are used to replace missing teeth leaving adjacent healthy teeth unaffected. A cylinder of titanium is placed in the position of the lost tooth root. An implant can support a new crown, be linked to other implants to replace multiple teeth, or provide extra stability for a denture. We are highly experienced and respected providers of this treatment.
