Take that first step to creating the beautiful smile that you deserve

WE ARE NOW OPEN!

Following the Covid-19 outbreak, we are delighted to inform our valued patients that we are now open and able to provide our usual full range of treatments.

The health and well-being of our patients and staff is absolutely paramount and we have introduced new protocols to ensure a save virus-free environment. These include screening patients for Covid-19 symptoms, seeing patients by appointment only, planning appointments to avoid unnecessary contact and avoiding unnecessary waiting before being seen.

All staff will be wearing additional PPE (personal protective equipment), especially for aerosol-generating procedures, and we will have new hygiene measures in place, in addition to our usual operating procedures of sterility and avoidance of cross-infection.

We value the trust and loyalty of our wonderful patients and we will continue to look after everyone to the highest possible standards and in the safest possible environment.

Dental Sedation

Why choose us?

Some people are so frightened of attending a dental practice they allow their dental health and well-being to become an issue before seeking help.

For patients who do find the experience upsetting or very worrying we are able to offer Dental Sedation.

From our experience, patients are usually very surprised at how easy it is to cope with dental treatments after they have chosen dental sedation.

How we can help

We offer intravenous or IV sedation, where an injection is given in the arm or back of the hand. The dose will depend on the amount of treatment needed and the length of time it will take to complete.

You become drowsy and relaxed, and unaware of any treatment but you are still able to co-operate with the dentist. Don't worry - you won't be unconscious! The effects of the medicine can take some time to clear the body and we ask that you are accompanied for this treatment. You won't be able to drink alcohol, drive or work machinery for the rest of the day.

"I feel so relaxed when I come here now. You have all changed my life!"
