If accepted for NHS treatment, this will mean that any essential care needed to maintain a good standard of oral health will partly be covered by the NHS. The NHS provides all the treatment you need to keep your mouth, teeth and gums healthy at only a fraction of the price. The care available includes dental examinations/x-rays, fillings, root canal treatment, extractions, bridges and crowns etc. For more details please visit the NHS website or come in and say hello at our practice, where we will be happy to explain more about the treatments and answer any other questions.
It’s very easy to sign up and register at our practice. All we require before a consultation is for you to complete a Registration Form, which will ask for details of your medical history. The registration form can be picked up from our practice.
All of our dentists and staff recognise the importance of creating a relaxed and pleasant environment for our patients, as a visit to the dentist can be unnerving at the best of times. With attentive care and an approachable method we strive to create a family dental practice, which patients will not only feel confident on entrance, but will also feel confident introducing the practice to other family members.

I have a special interest in cosmetic dental procedures and facial aesthetics such as Dermer Filler, lip augmentation and anti wrinkle treatment. I enjoy making patients feel good about their smile.
