Coronavirus Pandemic at BPDS

BPDS offers NHS and private dentistry within Wales and complies with the guidance for both as set out for Wales*. Details of the changes are listed below but current situation summarised

Current situation:- into 2021

BPDS is operating a locked door policy. Patients will only be admitted for a booked appointment. In order to assist in distancing we request phone/email etc contact in the first instance.

As de-escalation progresses we would appreciate if patients assist us to prioritise the treatment need within our guidance by not contacting to book routine care until further notice.

*Please note that English de-escalation plans differ from Wales and we are obliged to apply the Welsh plans.


Next Steps

It is likely that we will soon enter an “enhanced amber” phase. This will allow us to beginning assessing the definitive treatment needs of patients that have had problems over the lock down period as well as completing treatments that were already started –  still within the restrictions of No AGPs. As soon as we have a date we will begin to contact patients, prioritised for those with most need that we feel the current restrictions will allow us to treat.

Please only contact the practice if you have an urgent need. Routine appointments will not be booked until further notice – in line with the All Wales de escalation planning.

“Invisalign – Light. Crooked front teeth that had started to become more noticeable. This, in turn, started to affect my confidence.

The experience at Beaufort Park was excellent throughout. The staff, from the initial consultation, were friendly and professional. The welcoming reception staff through to the excellent dentist (Russell Gidney) have made this an (almost!) pleasurable experience!

I feel so much more confident and happy to smile again in public.

Quintin Bell

“I hated my smile in photos, I looked as though I only had about 4 teeth! 🙁

Treatments have all been explained, the team have been great & I have started to notice my teeth changing & looking good – despite not even being half way through my treatment (Invisalign Aligner 11/23). I am so happy with the progress.

Thank you! 🙂

Super, I would recommend to anyone considering treatment.

“After years of being unhappy with my crooked teeth and avoiding photographers if at all possible.

I decided to seek corrective treatment at the grand old age of 55 in order to be able to smile at my daughters up coming wedding. After a chat with the Beaufort Dental practice I decided on a course of CFast treatment. In a few short months I was thrilled with the result. Straight teeth which were so much easier to care for and which looked 100 per cent more attractive

The cost was manageable too and I paid at intervals during the treatment. I wish I’d done it years ago.


“I did not like my teeth so didn’t smile.

Invisalign – absolutely brilliant! Very professional team, extremely happy with the results!”

Lisa G

“Even though my oral hygiene has always been excellent I have for many years hated my teeth which were discoloured + the crowns rather mismatched.

Dr Russell Gidney was the first dentist I had confidence in to correct my problems. He showed great empathy, kindness + professional skill. He made me feel completely at ease.

His dental nurses + admin staff are all lovely. The outcome is better than I expected, I now have a lovely smile!”

Pamela C

“I recently had cosmetic work on my teeth carried out by Russell at the surgery. he explained everything in detail and I am overjoyed with the results. The difference it has made is amazing and I thoroughly recommend them. The staff are very helpful too!”
