Coronavirus COVID-19 Update
Latest announcement by the government in the news that dentist can open on the 8th June 2020.
Throughout the pandemic, we have been clear that our first priority is the wellbeing of our patients and staff and this continues to be the case. As a result, the practice will only be reopening once we are satisfied that we have all of the necessary processes and personal protective equipment in place to ensure everyone’s safety.
Dentists were not given any notice of our reopening date and the information was only received via the daily briefing. We are working around the clock to get protocols and procedures in place based on the latest guidance made available.
We will contact patient via email with more information about when the practice will reopen and will also be updating the website. In the meantime, please do not attempt to make a new appointment or attend the practice in person for any reason unless you are asked to do so. If you need advice, or if you are in need of urgent dental treatment, you should continue to call the practice and leave a voicemail. One of the dentists will return your call and be able to help.
We are determined to support patients who need care as quickly as possible and will be opening the practice to provide further treatments as soon as we are safely able to do so. We will keep you fully informed throughout this process

Ashwell Dental Surgery has been in Ashwell village for the last 50 years and has been at the present site since 1990, when it took over half the current site from the previous doctor’s surgery.
Husband and wife team, Mr Dipen Shah and Dr Bindi Shah took over the practice in October 2004. Right from the onset they had a dream to create an environment where patients would enjoy the experience of going to the dentist. Ashwell Dental Surgery is devoted to treating patients of all ages with exquisite care and attention.
In June 2006 the Surgery also acquired the Moderns Dental Practice and integrated the patients and staff at the current site. At the same time, together with the support of the staff and patients, Ashwell Dental Surgery under took the mammoth task of refurbishing the existing and the adjoining premises to provide modern state of the art facilities for all stakeholders.
Ashwell Dental Surgery has built a reputation for providing the highest quality of care and service for the area in our family friendly facilities.
