Temporary Practice Closure …


To all of the patients and friends of The Riley Dental Studio

In light of the escalation of the COVID-19 outbreak and with the increasing restriction measures and guidance from our governing bodies, we feel that we have a social and moral obligation to play our part in reducing the risk of increasing the spread of COVID-19 and therefore we must act immediately in the best interests of our patients and staff.

It is with very heavy hearts that we have decided that a temporary closure of the practice is needed with immediate effect. We will be monitoring the situation on a daily basis and we will inform you as soon as it is safe to re-open the practice; please visit our Facebook Page or our Website for regular updates.

Our absolute priority is to offer a lifeline should you have a dental emergency so we have a telephone consultation service in place for any of our registered patients who have unbearable pain or facial swelling during this period of temporary closure. If you need urgent assistance please call either Gareth Riley on 07949 097509, Manoj Popat on 07973 267737 or e-mail

Rest assured Team Riley are doing everything possible to stay fit and well so we can return to work as soon as we are able to. We apologise for any inconvenience this will cause and would like to take this opportunity to thank you for your support, loyalty and for your understanding at this difficult time. We look forward to things returning to normal in a timely manner so that we can get back to providing the level of service that you expect from us.

In the meantime, please keep yourself, your families and everyone else safe. We will keep you updated as much as we can and please do not hesitate to contact us if you wish to discuss this or any other matter.


Daily life for everyone around the world has changed dramatically in a short space of time. As things begin to normalise it is important that we reflect and try to adapt to ensure that we take control and change the things we know will keep us safe.  Your oral health continues to be very important and although we should be more cautious going forward, we should not let recent events cause us to neglect this.

We are slowly starting to open and as your safety and comfort is the most important aspect for us at The Riley Dental Studio we have introduced many new measures to keep you safe whilst at the practice. Please have a look at our short video put together by Team Riley to illustrate your patient journey for the foreseeable future.

We have missed you all and we are so looking forward to seeing you back at The Riley Dental Studio.

Team Riley will be doing everything possible to accommodate your requirements moving forwards. If you are experiencing any dental problems or emergencies the best way to contact us is via the normal main practice number – 01782 374330.
