We believe it is important for all children to attend the dentist at an early age, even babies! With that in mind, we wish to encourage all parents to register their children from birth. This not only helps to instil good dental health habits from an early age, it can also prevent feelings of fear or worry developing around visiting the dentist.
As a registered Childsmile practice, we promote this programme for all eligible children. As well as preventive care and advice, fluoride varnish is applied twice yearly to children aged two and above to help protect their teeth.
Emergency dental care
As art of our commitment to you, we make every effort to see registered emergency patients on the same day. If you have a dental emergency, please try to call before 10am and we will try to fit you in as soon as possible. If you are not registered with us, and we have appointments available, we will try to see you, however priority must be given to registered patients.
If you have a severe emergency outside of surgery hours that cannot wait until the next day advice is available on NHS 24, just call 111.
We welcome new patients
We are fully committed to both NHS and private dentistry, and are currently able to take on new patients. Patients wishing to register with the practice can telephone 01475 785005; our dentists, hygienists and nursing team look forward to providing your dental care.
