Many of our patients may already be aware, but for those of you who haven’t heard yet after over 40 years at our current address and following months of preparations and hard work, Nickolas Burnett & Associates are moving to new premises!
The Reasons for Relocating
Although our current location has served us all well many of you will realise that we have run out of the space required to improve the facilities and treatment options. Fortunately our new premises are very nearby, in fact it is only 0.4 miles away.
Dental treatment is becoming more and more complex with increasing treatment options and the new equipment and upgrades to our computer systems demand more space.
As a practice the team are keen to provide a high level of service to all our patient base and unfortunately a new location was the only way to achieve our goal of excellent patient care.
We were fortunate to find a building very nearby which we felt was important to our patients as it meant a very minimal disruption in patient journeys to the practice.
Our new site is larger and offers opportunities to provide better surgeries, sterilizing rooms, a more comfortable waiting room and reception area. There will also be private consultation areas which will improve patient confidentiality.
The project has taken about 20 months of planning and by completely refurbishing the old premises everyone is looking forward to our new working environment which is modern and bright. Your patient experience will be enhanced and we look forward to having the facilities to improve patient satisfaction!
From Monday 17th July, we will be operating from the new location and the address to make a note of is:
20 Newmarket Road
Our telephone number (01223 351260) and e-mail address (firstname.lastname@example.org) will remain the same.
Practice opening hours
These will remain the same at present. For private appointments and for our Denplan patients, we already offer extra time slots, early on Tuesdays (from 7.30am) and Saturday mornings. For details, please contact us.
Our main entrance will be on Napier Street (not Newmarket Road!) and one of the main upgrades, in terms of patient experience, is that we will be able to provide a much higher standard of access and facilities to patients with special requirements.
The location of the new premises will actually be nearer the public car parks (the nearest ones being the Grafton West and East Car Parks) and there is also a short term Pay and Display Car Park at Sun Street. Full details of these car parks may be found on Cambridge City Council’s website details of which are below.
Many of our existing patients will find that we are no further from public transport bus stops than our current location.
Unfortunately, as is the case at our current site and due to our central city location, on-site parking will still not be possible, however blue badge holders can park outside on Napier Street and other side streets nearby so access for you should be less restrictive and hopefully easier.
Before your next appointment, please check our website or call the reception team for the latest information or any queries you might have about getting directions to the new practice.
So truly exciting times for us all and we’re sure you’re going to love the new practice! Everyone hopes that our new site with its modern facilities will enhance your patient experience at your next visit and for many years to come.
