Emergency Dental Care

Disabled Access Information

Our service during the Covid-19 pandemic

  • We have a closed-door policy. In other words we have the inner front door locked and you will only be allowed to enter the building immediately before an appointment you have previously booked. All appointments have to be made and confirmed remotely by email, telephone etc.

  • Enhanced cross-infection protection is in place. There is the, now familiar, plastic screen at the reception desk. Our waiting room will be limited to 4 patients (and their carers) and you will have to sit in the area assigned to you. You will be asked to attend on your own if possible and to bring only essential items with you.

  • You may well notice us wearing higher grades of PPE, especially if you have any treatment which involves generating an aerosol (which is created during most treatment we provide). We currently make a PPE charge of £5 for low aerosol treatments (check-ups, fitting crowns etc.) and £30 for high aerosol treatments (fillings, crown preparation, hygienist appointments, extractions etc).

  • We will be offering fewer appointments until the Covid alert Level drops to 2 and we should then be able to remove the PPE charges noted above.

  • There will be more forms and paperwork than you are used to so that we can keep everyone safe.


Before coming to the practice

  • You must make an appointment before coming to the practice.
  • Make sure we have your current mobile phone number and that you bring your phone with you and it is switched on. We may need to contact you to change your appointment time.

  • Attend on your own or with one carer or parent/guardian.

  • Do not bring unnecessary items with you. You may not be able to take them into the surgery and cannot leave them for safety with the receptionist.

  • If you have any symptoms of Covid-19 you must let us know immediately so that we can rearrange your appointment.

  • You will not be able to come into the practice well before you appointment time and will not be able to stay in the waiting area afterwards. Please make appropriate arrangements for lifts, taxis etc. Our receptionist will be able to help organising this

  • Ensure that you can pay using a card or other contact-less method rather than cash or cheque if possible.

  • Please update your medical history, and complete the Pre-appointment Screening Form.



Welcome to the Catherine Street Dental Practice in Salisbury.

Michael Newman and new patient consultation

We are a small, friendly, family dental practice based in Salisbury's medieval city centre.

Michael Newman established the Estcourt Road Dental Practice in 1988 and in 2011 this amalgamated with the Catherine Street Dental Practice at 9a Catherine Street.

We offer easily understood advice and a wide range of sensibly priced treatment options. Treatment is carried out in a friendly, professional atmosphere and to the highest standards.

The dental practice has many longstanding members of staff and our patients appreciate seeing the same faces everytime they visit us.

Our dentist is Michael Newman who qualified at University College London in 1981. He regularly keeps up to date by attending further training courses.

David Bevan of Southern Smiles Ltd works closely with us as a Clinical Dental Technician providing our patients with full and partial dentures of all types.
