Appointments

Dentist and patient

To book an appointment, please call  0114 2661 335

Alternatively you can come by the surgery to make an appointment.

Our hours for appointments can be found on the Opening Hours page

If you have a preference as to which dentist you wish to see, please express this when booking your appointment.

Once your treatment is complete, we encourage you to come back to the practice for regular examinations. Your next visit can be arranged before you leave the surgery.

Cancellations

As an NHS service School Road Dental Surgery is under pressure to save money and staff time by reducing the number of failed appointments and cancellations made at the last minute.

Each year around 54,000 appointments are missed at dental practices in Sheffield.

We are aware that many patients have genuine difficulties attending for appointments and may find that they cannot always attend on the day of an appointment due to ill health, a carer unavailable to bring them, anxiety or simply a prior engagement.

Our service will always try to allow for these problems but in order to reduce these failed appointments and late cancellations it has been necessary to introduce the following policy:

  • Failure to attend 2 appointments will result in no further appointments at School Road Dental Surgery.
  • Cancellation of 2 appointments less than 24hours before the appointment is due and the patient will be unable to make any further appointments at School Road Dental Surgery.

Please let us know in good time if you are unable to attend an appointment, so that the time can be offered to other patients.

Please also be aware that failing to attend or cancelling a private appointment with less that 24 hours notice is chargeable.

Our staff will always try to be sympathetic when there are genuine reasons for cancellation.

Violence and Abuse

Please note, violence and abuse towards staff members will not be tolerated within this practice. Violent or abusive patients will result in refusal of treatment.

Domiciliary Visits

If you are disabled or are unable to visit the surgery, we will do our best to help. We offer home visits where possible and practical.

Patients requiring dental treatment, who are housebound or live in residential or nursing homes can now be seen promptly.

Residents in local nursing homes are screened for their dental needs and appropriate treatment is arranged.
