At Poundswick Lane Dental Practice we normally provide NHS or cosmetic dental treatment to both adults and children.
Following the advice from NHS England and the Department of Health we are currently unable to provide any routine dental care. Please see our Covid page for updates.
Our practice is accessible for disabled patients. We have wheelchair access to our reception area, toilets and three of our surgeries. It may be helpful to request a downstairs surgery when you phone to book an appointment.
NHS dental treatment includes all treatment necessary to secure and maintain your oral health.
Healthy teeth begin with healthy gums, so if you have noticed bleeding, bad breath, or teeth that seem to have moved, it may be time to take a closer look at your gums.
Please book in for an examination with your dentist, we can look at your concerns related to your gums and can offer you advice and treatments with our hygienist to help maintain healthy gums in the future.
We have a dedicated hygienist for the practice and is a valued member of our dental team and with over 23 years experience, successfully treating and guiding her patients with periodontal diseases back to health.

We have 4 specially trained nurses who run an oral health clinic. They offer up to 20 minutes of dedicated surgery time to adults and children who need more direction with their oral hygiene care.
