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

    "It was my first visit to a Dentist in many years and I can't speak highly enough of this Dental Practice. The Dentist (Mr Gheorghe), Hygienist (Ms More) and staff were professional and personable at all times, explaining everything from start to finish. Thank you."

    "My appointment ran smoothly. I only had a few minutes wait before my dentist called me in. I then received professional and successful treatment by my very pleasant dentist, Mr. Ahmed Amer. The only slightly negative point which, being retired, hasn't so far been a big issue for me, is that my appointment has been postponed more than once. However, this could possibly cause greater inconvenience to the working community whose time is much more constricted."

    "My dentist was unable to see me at short notice but I was offered another appointment with another dentist within a couple of days, Lovely policeand caring staff, both on reception and dentist."

  • NHS Choices 4 out of 5

    "The lack of dentists, three currently, creates some difficulties but the treatment has always been effective efficient and pain-free for an NHS patient of 30 years at the same venue.. I was quoted around £4,000 for new dentures which rose to around £7,000 after a £65.00 scan consultation, non-refundable, and the prospect of a £300+ 3Dscan which seemed to only be available in South Molton! Accuracy comes at a price."

    "There seems to be a chronic shortage of dentists at the practice. This results in very long waits for appointments. Unfortunately it's the only practice in the area. The service from the receptionists and dentists(when you can get to see one) is good."
