Chris, Daga, Emily, Gill, Lauren, and Pam are delighted to announce that Lotus is now able to see our much valued, loved and hugely missed patients.

Many things have changed.

At Lotus we have ALWAYS maintained the highest standards of infection control.

At Lotus under official advice and guidance we MUST implement change to reduce the risk to you, your families and to Lotus team members.

We are advised, the virus is still a threat.

REMEMBER, we have always used universal precautions and we will continue to do so.

Team members will always wear a mask, a face shield and a disposable gown or apron, where appropriate.

We have a large back-log of patients to see.

We MUST prioritise those in most need.

Due to new necessary procedures, and following guidelines, understandably we will be seeing fewer patients per day.

We would ask for your patience, kindness and understanding, in advance.

I am genuinely looking forward to seeing you all, I and all the team have missed you all greatly.

You bring meaning to, and purpose to, as well as brightening our lives.

Thanks for your attention.

“Very friendly orthodontist. Rang to sort out my permanent retainer which had started to wear out after about 10 years, saw me as a new patient 2 hours later. Really don't like getting work done on my teeth but he made me feel very relaxed. Overall a much better experience than what I had with my previous orthodontist. Would definitely recommend.”
