A wide range of services

We do general dentistry, dental implants, clear aligners, crowns, bridges, , wisdom teeth, gum care and treatment, root-canal treatement, removable dentures, minor orthodontics and cosmetic dentistry.

We refer complex orthodontics, complex oral surgery, and all cases that require specialist level care.  If we can do it well we will.  But if you need a specialist we have a great team of specialists that work with us and we can make sure you have the option to see the right person at the right time.

Individual patient approach

We respect the indivdual wishes and needs of every patient.  We work with you (and not “on” you).  There is beauty in simplicity – and if you don’t want it – we won’t try to sell it.

We recognise that there are many individuals who for vaious reasons need access to general anaesthetic or sedation for treatment.  We have regular operating lists in local hospitals where we treat children and adults.

We also provide oral sedation and gas sedation (happy gas).

Safe and quality treatment

We have invested in great equipment and aim to exceed best practice.  You are welcome to check out our equipment and our protocols.  We track all critical instruments and have implemented the latest instrument management system. We’d like to think that our core value of excellence affects everything we do and who we are.
