Welcome to {my}dentist, Woodhorn Road, Ashington Dentist located in Ashington


Open as normal

Patient information

Our practices are open for NHS and private dental treatments and we are continuing to see patients in order of their need to see a dentist. Should you have a new dental problem please call us as we are speaking to patients on the phone first to offer help and advice, and book in appointments if the dentist needs to see you face-to-face. There are still fewer appointments available due to the protective measures in place, so we apologise if you need to wait to see a dentist. Please do not attend the practice in person unless we ask you to do so.

Protective measures in practice

Our first priority is always the wellbeing of our patients and colleagues. Please make sure to wear a face covering if attending an appointment at one of our dental practices, attend alone where possible, and arrive on time for your appointment. Do not attend if you or anyone you live with has any symptoms of Covid-19, has tested positive for Covid-19 or has been asked to self-isolate by NHS Track & Trace or your school.

Please make sure to read our safety information ahead of your next visit

    "Excellent practice with friendly and professional staff. I had left the practice when my previous dentist left and after using another local dentist quickly came back as the level of care here was far superior. I would highly recommend this practice."

    "I called into the practice on behalf of my 84 year old uncle who had toothache and not been to a dentist in over 40 years. I was told to phone at 9 am in the morning and someone would see him. Phoned next day and got an appointment at 11 am. His tooth had to be removed. First class and professional service from start to finish. From the reception staff to the dentist himself putting my uncle as ease. The dentist explained everything he would be doing which made the procedure so much more relaxing. This is how businesses should be run. 5 star all the way. Thank you to you all."

    "I needed emergency dental treatment whilst on holiday in Northumberland. After visiting five dentists requesting emergency treatment without success, I found 'My Dentist' in Ashington (21 miles away). The receptionist were really helpful and offered a 'sit and wait service' until a dentist became available. Within two hours I received expert dental treatment for an infected tooth with an abscess which resulted in a tooth extraction. I can't express suffiently how grateful I am for the excellent service I received. It saved our holiday, a further ten days at Embleton. I was about to curtail our holiday and return home to get emergency treatment at my home dental practice. Thank you so much for providing such a thoughtful and caring dental service."

    "My husband and myself have recently needed to locate to a different dentist. Without hesitation we were admitted to this practice. We're both extremely happy with the service that we have received. Both reception and the dentist have been polite and very professional. We will continue to use this practice as the service is superb. We highly recommend this practice."
