Your first visit with us will include one on one discussion time with the clinician.

Following this our unique 21 point (Comprehensive) evaluation of your mouth is carried out.

We will then personalise a treatment that is best for you and discuss your financial options.


For your comfort our treatment is carried in a completely painless & relaxed manner with a friendly, caring & gentle approach.


For your safety, general hand sanitising is available throughout the practice to both patients and staff, we use single-use and disposable instruments wherever possible ensuring no cross contamination. 


All the while ensuring all equipment is sterilised & serviced according to HTM 01-05 Legislation.

Anxious about going to the dentist?

For many of you, we fully understand what a big step coming to the dentist can be, we are experienced in treating anxious patients and we hope to help you overcome this feeling with a ‘look see’ visit of the practice. You are very welcome to have a look around and have a cup of coffee.
