Covid-19 Update
All of our patients are part of our family at Berry Lane Dental Surgery. And, just like you, keeping our family safe and healthy during this challenging time is our first concern. In order to protect your overall health as well as your oral health, we have taken the following measures.

Postponing appointments
Having assessed all the governmental and professional advice regarding Covid 19 and having listened to and heeded the advice of the Prime Minister, on March 23rd , the practice is currently closed.
Don’t worry, if you had an appointment coming up soon you can expect a phone call from your dentist, to check on you and to rearrange it for a later date.
When it’s safe for us to operate normally again, we will contact you and we will see you as soon as you need.

We’re still here to help
In the event of an emergency you can still receive advice from one of the dentists, and this advice can be gained in the first instance by contacting the Practice on 01772 782066
We can’t stress any more how important you are to us, not just as a business but personally.
Please take care of yourselves and your families at this difficult time, we’re hoping that we can look after all our families too.
Don’t take unnecessary risks and for the moment stay indoors wherever possible.
We can’t wait to see you again and have the chance to talk under better circumstances.

Yours sincerely,
Fiona Richardson, Ben Chatburn, Nicholas Richardson

Update from Fiona, Ben and Nick.

We are working very hard behind the scenes to make sure that our practice is as safe as possible when you next come to see us; in order to protect you, the wider community and our Dental Team.

We hope to be open providing Urgent Dental Care soon.

Things will be different when we next see you. Some of the measures that are now in place are Perspex screens on reception, a one-way system in and out of the building to minimise social contact, spaced waiting areas with protective shields, a staggered appointment system, hand sanitizing stations on entering and leaving the practice, a new designated PPE store and new staff uniforms. We have also been redecorating. We know and really do appreciate that you, as our patients, have all been very tolerant and we are very grateful for the trust you have placed in us. We have spoken to many of you over the past few weeks and had some lovely feedback about our current advice service.

Please ring the surgery in the event of a Dental Emergency and we will be happy to advise you.

Take care,
Fiona, Ben and Nick.

Dental Surgery, Longridge, Preston

State of the art dental surgery based in the rural picturesque village of Longridge, Preston.

We are proud to announce that on 6 June 2008 our Dental Surgery was given Denplan Excel Accreditation, as part of the higher Denplan Quality Assurance programme; this is a universally acknowledged benchmark for quality dental care in the UK, that now has UKAS recognition. We have successfully maintained this prestigious accreditation at every assessment since, six times in succession.

The location on Berry Lane in Longridge has been very popular with all patients, as there is ample on & off street parking; and bus stops within yards of the surgery, direct from Preston Bus Station. Dr Nicholas Richardson was pleased to be joined in July 2008 by his younger daughter, Dr Fiona Richardson. “Fiona is a third generation dentist. Like me, she has lived and breathed dental care all her life from birth! She had been working in Lytham St. Annes immediately after qualification, but was keen to develop the family practice here on Berry Lane . Over 3 generations of dentistry in one family, and in one dental practice for many patients, some of whom have continuous dental care in the practice since the early 1950s!
