An Isle of Wight dental practice is on the move to 'state-of-the-art' facilities after it lost its home in Ryde.

Tower House Dental Clinic, on Rink Road, Ryde, has announced its significant milestone' of moving to Wootton, in the former Bathroom Showroom on the High Street.

It was based in the same building as the Tower House GP surgery but needed to move as the doctors were looking to expand, taking over the space formerly held by the dentists.

The clinic has been temporarily closed in August while the move to Wootton High Street was taking place and was unable to complete appointments, postponing them to a later date.

A spokesperson for the dental clinic said the first priority would be to complete outstanding treatments who have been waiting and those that need emergency appointments.

Routine appointments would then continue as normal.

The spokesperson said: "We look forward to regaining some normality and welcoming back our patients.

"We are really thankful for and appreciate everyone's understanding and patience during this challenging period."

The dental clinic said its new facilities will enable it to offer patients an enhanced service and advanced technology.

It will open again next week, on August 29 and patients will receive an email updating them.
