We've had a lot of change happening in the practice over the last 6 months that we thought we'd update people on!

We're very excited to welcome a new dentist Zoe. Zoe has been qualified since 2016 and is very kind and friendly and we can already see patients being totally at ease seeing her. Libby is off at the moment after having a back operation, she is recovering well and hopes to be back to work in the next couple of months,

Sadly, we said goodbye to our long time receptionist Gabriel...

Private and Independent appointments are also available Monday to Thursday.

Independent Dental treatment

Posted by Elizabeth Allen on Thursday, September 24, 2015,
Independent treatment is private treatment designed to mimic the offering and pricing structure of the NHS system. This means if you had a check-up you would be charged £18.80 (the current NHS band 1 charge) and for a filling it would be £51.30 (current NHS band 2).

The work would still have the same guarantee as NHS treatment but unlike the NHS, multiple treatments or returning within 3 months would result in separate charges.

Independent will soon be offered to patients on our waiting list ...

Halloween Vampire fangs!

Posted by Elizabeth Allen on Thursday, October 2, 2014,
If you want to make your fancy dress this Halloween extra special why not get some fangs!
These "subtle" vampire fangs were made by the lab, colour matched to my teeth and they just clip over my teeth. There is no preparation of the teeth and it just needs a short appointment to assess what you want and take the impressions.

I know you can buy a set of vampire teeth in the joke shop for £1.99 but this sort of dental treatment with lab work would normally be more like £199 per tooth! so at the...
