For over 20 years, Dr Jillian M Geaney has practised in the Suffolk town of Stowmarket, England. Today Jill has a team of friendly dentists, dental hygienist, and support staff all striving to meet the needs of our customers. Thank you for your custom, we sincerely hope to continue our great work and improve where you see necessary.
Since the 1st of April 2020 we have attended the practice each day to provide advice, analgesia or antimicrobials where appropriate in line with NHS prescribing guidelines (AAA), but remained closed due to Covid-19. We hope that you remained safe and well.
The statement given out by the government that dentists in England will re-open on the 8th June 2020 misled the public: we could only re-open with adequate safety measures and PPE in place. Today there is still a national shortage of PPE meaning that some staff will be prevented from performing certain treatments. Please be patient with our reception staff who have lots of Covid-19 related questions to ask.
Patients of all ages are cared for; existing National Health Service (NHS) customers and customers independent of NHS (private) dentistry.
Please see the NHS Advice on Coronavirus. If you have symptoms of Coronavirus (Covid-19) or are self-isolating because your household is in self-isolation, do not attend your appointment. Call the practice on 01449 771700 to rebook for a later date.
If you have no Covid-19 symptoms and are not in self-isolation, should you require emergency advice, please phone the reception team on 01449 771 700 between 8.30am and 4.45pm. Please would patients registered at other practices seek help from their own dentist. If you are unregistered, we can still offer advice over the phone.
Please be aware that our dental practice can only carry out aerosol generating procedures (AGP, drilling/ultrasonic cleaning) in line with Chief Dental Officer recommendations. Treatments generating AGP require complex, expensive Personal Protective Equipment (PPE).
We have switched off our SMS text reminders at present but will ask you for an email address if one is not registered on your notes to so that keeping you informed will be easier.
Failure to rebook (within 2 years) or failure to attend a booked appointment may result in your removal from our patient list.
