We are delighted to announce that we have received our Dementia Friendly accreditation.
Our staff had to discuss how they will work in a dementia friendly way, raise awareness of dementia and meet the seven criteria set by the Alzheimer’s Society. This ensures that our staff understand the challenges faced by people living with dementia and improves the quality of care we deliver to our patients.

It is April and, like many other bodies, the NHS is increasing its charges. We have updated the prices on our Charges section.
Patients with current (open) courses of treatment will still pay last years fees, but those of you who start a course of treatment from now on will need to pay the new ones.
We appreciate these charges do not reflect the current rate of inflation. We can only assure you that the extra fees go to prop up the NHS and do not go to the dentist.
Emma Hayes has started her maternity leave. We are sure that many of her patients will want to join us in wishing her well over the next few months. We hope that all goes well and that Emma can thoroughly enjoy her time as a new mum.
In the meantime, Emma’s patients will be looked after by the other dentists and members of staff. We will do our best to provide continuity and fill her boots!
