Welcome to Killingworth Dental Surgery Dentist located in Newcastle upon Tyne


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

I saw Aqsa Burkeli (sorry if I'm not spelling it right) today and honestly can say hands down she is the best dentist I have had in 26 years. I had a wisdom tooth removal and it was done quickly and easily and I was comforted throughout. I will have absolutely no hesitation in visiting more regularly now thanks to Aqsa!"
