Products & Services

General Dentistry is routine care provided for you and your family and involves regular maintenance and prevention, appropriate intervention and onward referral if necessary.

We believe that “prevention is better than cure” and we therefore try to guide you with appropriate instruction to allow you to better care for your own oral health. This means showing you how to care for your teeth and gums and offering dietary advice.


Dentistry is no longer just about fillings and extractions! More and more we see “Makeover” television programmes and magazine articles, which promote changes to your teeth to enhance and improve smile aesthetics. There are lots of exciting new developments in the world of dentistry that make it possible to improve the appearance of your smile. These can involve the replacement of old amalgam fillings with tooth coloured alternatives to provide a more aesthetically pleasing restoration.

Before cosmetic dentistry can be considered a thorough examination is required to ensure the gums and teeth are in a healthy state.


Dental implants are a permanent and fixed solution to missing teeth. They have been around for about thirty years and are basically titanium screws that are fixed in the jawbones to mimic teeth. They have the advantage that they can replace a lost tooth without having to involve the adjacent teeth. They are, in fact, one of the most successful treatment options in dentistry today.


At your routine examinations our dental team examine the position of the teeth in the jaws to determine if there is enough space for the teeth to grow into a pleasing smile with a perfect bite.

Orthodontics is becoming much more common in adult patients as a treatment option on its own or to assist in more complex restorative treatment plans.

Customer Testimonials

Absolutely fantastic - totally over the moon with my new front veneer - work of the highest standard from Josephine and Fergus. Totally painless and a perfect job from start to finish. Can't thank you enough!


Best experience i've ever had at a dentist and i am completely scared of going and could not stop shaking, however Jennifer Reid was absolutely fantastic!!! Kept me calm and was very patient and understanding and kept checking i was ok while having a tooth extraction - have to go back in a few weeks for more treatment and while i will still be nervous i feel much calmer knowing that she will be doing it - for a dentist it also has a nice atmosphere, is very modern and the girls on reception are lovely. Have just registered here but safe to say you have a patient for life!


An excellent new start for well established local firm. I have been a patient of this practice for many years and have had nothing but first class care from all of the team. It is fantastic to see the same great service continuing in their new state of art premises. Well done.


Fantastic for nervous patients, thank you Jennifer Reid for the care you gave me today.
