Your choice

As individuals we have to make more and more provision for our own health needs. We believe it is important for all patients to have a choice of how they wish to fund their dental care, namely:

  • Payment on a fee-per-item basis: Written estimates of treatment costs provided after examination. All major credit/debit cards accepted.
  • DENPLAN payment plans: Part or full cost of future dental care covered by a monthly premium incorporating accident and emergency insurance.


As a caring practice, we take all necessary precautions to safeguard both patients and staff from infections such as AIDS and Hepatitis. We follow recommended guidelines with regard to sterilisation of instruments by modern autoclaves and the use of single use disposable items.

Facilities for the disabled

All facilities in and around the centre are disabled friendly. There is a lift to the Dental Centre from the ground floor reception area. Dedicated parking spaces are outside the main entrance from the car park at the rear of the building.

Special services

In addition to routine treatments we offer:

  • Fissure sealants for our younger patients to prevent tooth decay
  • Sport mouth guards - essential for those of you actively involved in contact sports
  • Cosmetic dentistry and tooth whitening by Zoom™
