Important notice regarding our resumption of face to face care.
We are thankfully returning to clinical activities but must limit our services to emergency only for the foreseeable future.
This is because our priority is your safety and well being, and that of our wonderful team.
We would therefore ask you to:-
Not to just turn up at the practice. Please telephone 0191 2675910 first.
All routine, non urgent appointments are cancelled.
Please telephone for further information if you already have a routine appointment, if we have not already contacted you.
If you are having problems and think you need emergency treatment:-
If you have a fever and/or persistent cough in the last week, or if any member of your household has these symptoms in the last 2 weeks please telephone NHS 111 and specify that you need to self isolate and require dental treatment. Do not attend the practice as we cannot see you if you have COVID symptoms.
If you feel you need urgent treatment please telephone the practice to arrange an appointment. Please do not just turn up as we are operating in smaller teams and our capacity is limited. Do not come with anyone else if possible and do not bring any bags or packages into the surgery. Types of treatment are limited due to risk of virus spread. You will be given clear instructions over the phone about what to expect and what we need you to do.
We all need to think very carefully about how we interact – this is crucial to avoid further spread of the virus. Times have been very difficult for us all and we look forward to providing our normal level of service as soon as it is safe to do so.
Stay safe and well – best wishes from all at Newburn Dental!

Sue is from Huddersfield and studied dentistry in Sheffield, qualifying in 1984. From there she took her first post in general practice in Hull and in 1988 joined Mike in the North East, initially working in Hebburn. In 1991 she took ownership of the practice in Newburn, in partnership with Mike. Since then, alongside bringing up three children, Sue has enjoyed many areas of general dentistry, particularly the challenge of putting nervous patients at ease. During relaxation hours, family comes first and she loves catching up with them, if that also takes in travel, walking and food, all the better!
