We are committed to preventative dentistry and central to this philosophy are regular examinations at the practice. These examinations will ensure you long term oral health so that you can enjoy your smile for many, many years. When you attend the practice for a full examination of your teeth and gums early detection of any problems can save the need for extensive dental treatment.


We operate in state of the art surgeries and use the latest equipment. This allows us to provide you with the best care possible using the most modern techniques and materials. Including digital radiographs (X-rays), digital intra-oral camera and a Zeiss surgical microscope.


The radiographs (x-rays) systems we use are optimized with the latest digital technology which reduces the radiation exposure by 50% compared to conventional radiographs.

The importance of dental hygiene

A dental hygiene appointment has three main roles:

· Removal of calculus (tartar) from teeth this is done by a technique called scaling and polishing.

· Treating gum disease (also known as ‘gingivitis’ or ‘periodontal disease’) - this is caused by plaque which is a sticky film of bacteria. If left untreated your gums will start to swell and bleed and will ultimately result in tooth loss. Tooth loss is not due to aging—it is due to gum disease.

· Teaching patients good oral hygiene techniques — individually tailored to specific needs.


There is now increasing evidence linking gum disease with heart disease and strokes. It is also the main reason for loss of teeth and we take the treatment of gum disease very seriously.
