Following the Prime Minister’s recent announcement, you will be pleased to know, we will remain open!

There are no restrictions with regards to medical /dental treatment and you are actively encouraged to keep your appointments.

Just to reiterate when you arrive at the Practice:

·      We advise that you always wear a mask while inside the dental practice and only remove your mask at the request of the dental professional.

·      Please do not arrive more than 5 minutes early for an appointment due to social distancing guidelines.

·      As you enter the building you will need to use the alcohol disinfectant rub to disinfect your hands.

In the meantime, please stay safe and contact us if you have any questions

NHS appointments are in very high demand and we may be unable to offer appointments for non urgent treatment and waiting times for NHS treatments may be several weeks.

We are one of the founding member practices of MOS Hertfordshire.  MOS Hertfordshire has been selected by the PCT to provide NHS Minor Oral Surgery under LA for Hertfordshire patients.

We have three service locations which will provide the Minor Oral Surgery under LA and we are able to cover nearly all of the geographical area of Hertfordshire from our service locations resulting in easy access for your patients to the service

MOS Hertfordshire Oral surgeons Bikram Bal, Lena Vakhil and Meenal Karania have a combined 50 years experience of providing Oral Surgery both in the Primary and Secondary care setting. The oral surgeons are on the Oral Surgery Specialist list with the GDC. Many of you may already know and have referred to Bikram Bal who has provided private oral surgery services in Hertfordshire for the last 15 years.

We would request that you send referrals indicating which service location your patient would like to be seen at on the referral form. 

Please see attached below patient information leaflets to supply to your patients so they can obtain information about the service locations and the Oral Surgeons prior to their visit.

You can either send referrals to us by post using the freepost envelopes or email your referral to our NHS email address. We can only accept email referrals from another NHS email account to ensure security of patient’s data. If you have digital X-rays we would prefer the referral to be emailed so we have a good quality X-ray. The individual service locations emails  addresses are:-

ashwelldentalref.herts@nhs.net

hoddesdondentalref.hoddesdon@nhs.net

victoriadentalref.stalbans@nhs.net

We aim to provide a quality service for your patients. We would welcome any feedback you have regarding the service.

We look forward to receiving your referrals and if you have any queries we will be more than happy to discuss them. If you require any more Patient information leafletsor freepost envelopes please contact us and we would be happy to supply them.
