We have a committed dental team with both clinical and reception staff dedicated to provide you with quality clinical care but great customer relations too. Our Principal Dentist Serena Rochford, Practice Manager Shirley Pouchly and Senior Dental Nurse Deb Willey manage a team of 6 qualified dental nurses,  3 trainee dental nurses, 9 dentists, 1 Hygienist, and 4 receptionists. All our dental professionals take part in Continuing Professional Development, by attending courses which are in our patients’ best interests and meeting the General Dental Council requirements. We aim to keep up to date with current thinking and training.

At the practice we base our advice for patients on the “Delivering Better Oral Health” evidence based toolkit, dentists use this toolkit to provide patients of all ages with the best prevention and oral care advice. We do this by offering tooth brushing/oral hygiene instruction, fluoride application and diet advice. This can vary from an informal chat on your examination visit to a demonstration and advice session by one of our trained clinical team.

Patient Feedback 

Feb 2013 – “This surgery has always been friendly and helpful especially when it comes to emergency appointments. I see an excellent dentist who always puts the patient’s needs first.”

Oct 2013 – “Having not had any dental work done for a while, and having to find a new dentist as my dentist retired, I was quite nervous! My fears were unfounded, I received polite, painless and even enjoyable treatment! The dentist was fantastic, and what a lovely assistant! Very, very happy.”

Oct 2013 – ” I have had a very good experience with this practise. Considering myself very lucky to have them as my dentist. Had the fear of going to dentist all my life due to unbearable pain in a dentist chair and due to bad experiences. They sorted my teeth nicely and most importantly nearly pain free. And after all, the dentist charged me fairly. Would recommend to anyone.”

Feb 2014 – ” I am very pleased with my dentist. She was very polite and professional throughout my treatment and involved me in all the decisions. I would thoroughly recommend her to my family and friends”
