Did Not Bring (DNB)

If you have been sent an SMS with a link to this page, this is because according to our records, the child or young person in your care was not brought for their dental appointment.

We have tried to contact you by telephone to rearrange the appointment, but have been unable to reach you. Please contact the practice to make a further appointment.

You may also want to let us know if there was a special reason why your child was not brought to their appointment


Regular dental care is important for your child. It helps prevent problems so your child can avoid dental pain and infection.

If we do not hear from you we will not send any further appointments in accordance with our policy. Health proffessionals are required to share information about missed appointments and repeated cancellations for the benefit and safeguarding of children. People we may inform of any concerns include the childs family doctor (GP), shchool nurse, health visitor, social worker and/or the dentist (or other professional) who referred you to us.

We hope you will arrange a further appointment for your child at your earliest convenience.

If you did not know about the appointment missed, please ensure your contact details are up to date, as per the practice policies, as we will not be aware and will be sending appointment information to the details we hold on file for you.
