A dentist in Ely has had to cancel some patient’s appointments due to a ‘shortage of dentists’.

My Dentist, based in St Mary’s Street, say that they are prioritising appointments due to the situation.

In a letter sent to patients this week, it reads:

“I am writing to advise you that we are currently experiencing a shortage of dentists.

“The consequence of this is that we have unfortunately had to cancel patient appointments until this situation has been resolved.

“During this period if you have a dental emergency please contact the practice on 01353662159.”
