Happiness is your dentist

telling you it won't hurt

and then having him

catch his hand in the drill

New patient / irregular attendee

We are always delighted to welcome new patients to our friendly, caring practice.

Your first appointment will have extra time allocated for us to meet and get to know you. There will be time to examine your mouth in detail, including any necessary x-rays or photography, and to discuss how you would like us to help you. Often there are different options to discuss and you will be presented with a written quotation of any proposed treatment.

We will be happy to discuss any special requirements that are personal to you at this appointment, such as times of the day that are most convenient for you and any special worries that you may have.

Once treatment is complete we arrange a reminder appointment for you to maintain and monitor your dental health for the future.

Preventative Dentistry

The Hygienist & Therapist

The practice hygienist and therapist concentrate on emphasising the importance of prevention of dental disease and maintaining a good looking, healthy and comfortable set of teeth.

Prevention and limitation of the damage caused by dental disease is much better and usually cheaper than treating the effects of the disease once it has become established.

Good gum health is our aim as the gums are the foundation upon which the teeth depend.

Hygienist hours

Tuesday 8.30am - 4.30pm

Thursday 8.30am - 4.30pm

Price range : from £45.00 - £68.00 per appointment

Services offered

  • Treatment and prevention of gum disease and dental decay including scaling and polishing of the teeth and preventative lifestyle advice.
  • Preventative fluoride advice and application.
  • Advice on specialist products and brushes, and their use.
  • Plastic coatings on the back teeth to prevent decay in the cracks.
Cosmetic Dentistry

Your smile is important. It is one of of the first things that you notice when you meet someone. A whiter, brighter smile is beautiful; it can help you feel better about yourself and make a better impression.

We feel that appearance is fundamental in dentistry, so please feel free to ask Mr Wells about your particular needs.

To help you achieve your perfect smile, we can offer you an extensive range of cosmetic dental procedures.

Your health and dental care are our highest priorities and we will always consider the general health of your teeth before carrying out any cosmetic procedure.

Whitening for upper & lower teeth
One arch

£300.00

Children

Examinations £21.50

Emphasis is on prevention, to start off life with a mouth free of fillings and to build up confidence in coming to the practise and associate it with fun.

We use a range of badges and toys to welcome your children to the practice.

We also offer preventative treatments such as plastic coatings to prevent decay in back teeth and advice on fluorides to help the teeth resist decay. The majority of children usually need no fillings with the right prevention in our practise.

Your financial investment

After an examination, a treatment plan will be agreed and you will be given a written estimate of the cost of the work to be done.

You may wish to pay by cash, credit card or cheque with bankers card, either as a single payment before the start of treatment or in stages according to the work done on each visit.

Therefore, each time you come please bring some form of payment. Should your treatment involve a laboratory fee then a specified deposit will be requested.
