Why Choose Us?
Comfortable, gentle dentistry to keep your smile healthy & last a lifetime.
Our new, modern dental practice has been designed to make your visit a much more pleasurable, gentle experience. We are aware that some people are anxious and nervous about attending the dentist and strife to make their visit a more relaxed, pleasurable one.
Our goal is to keep your mouth healthy and maintain your teeth throughout your entire life. We know that regular visits will help keep you healthy and help prevent future problems. By identifying problems early we can prevent them from developing into more serious, costly problems and in some cases we can even reverse the damage caused.

Clean, sterilised equipment
We have a purpose built sterilisation room where we follow strict protocols to ensure instruments are sterilised correctly and safely. Our staff are trained and attend courses regularly to keep up to date with infection control procedures.
A large amount of our practice fees are dedicated to buying sterilisation materials, disposable gloves, masks, suction tips etc., all of which are used to protect you from any possibility of infection and contamination whilst in the practice. This does not include our sterilisation equipment which is used more often than any other piece of equipment in the practice. Your safety is our priority!
We have invested in new equipment such as ‘The Wand’ to make any treatment easier and more comfortable. ‘The Wand’ is used instead of a traditional syringe injection for numbing up to give painless injections.
It is excellent for nervous patients and children or those who simply would like a more gentle dental experience.
