Thank you for sponsoring Emma in the London Marathon this year in aid of Teenage Cancer Trust.

The total raised so far is a fantastic £3,340 (to add to this please visit Virgin Money Giving and search Emma Speechley) Thank you!



We continue to see our lovely patients with new procedures to ensure all our safety. Check-ups are resuming, Please call and book an appointment. We are very busy but open for business.

We are back in action. This is some of the team in PPE.


Please be reassured, it’s still us smiling behind the masks and visors!

We are trying to return to providing a more comprehensive service, however we are still limited on the number of people we can have in the building, and are allowing extra time for cleaning between every patient, so please bear with us if you cannot be seen for a check-up immediately. We are catching up on urgent problems initially, but hope to offer more routine treatment and appointments very soon, as ever safety is our primary concern, and we continue to follow guidelines from Public Health England, The British Dental Association, and other bodies.
Please call if you have any queries, we’d love to hear from you, we’ve missed you!

We are open!

We are pleased to say that we are open again and starting to see our lovely patients.

However we are limited in the short-term ( due to PPE supplies) with which treatments we can provide. Currently we are able to perform consultations, treatment planning, extractions, temporary fillings and denture repairs.

As ever everyone’s safety is our priority, and we have introduced stringent new measures to comply with all the latest advice and guidance.

Please give us a call if you have a problem, we are happy to discuss this over the phone and then arrange an appropriate appointment .

We do have a few appointments available this week, if you need an urgent assessment.

Stay safe,
The Team at Riverside.
