Update from Sara Hurley, Chief Dental Officer England:
The government's guidance states that "a number of public services will also stay open and you will be able to leave home to visit them. These include [...] the NHS and medical services like GPs".
I can confirm that this includes NHS dental services. Therefore, during the period of tighter restrictions practices should remain open to treat patients in line with the standard operating procedure and with regard to the recently updated national infection prevention control dental appendix. Detail on both of these were shared in last week's update and are repeated below.
