About Us

A team of four experienced dentists allows us to offer a wide range of dental treatments.

We use the latest technology and techniques.

We concentrate on preventative measures to ensure your teeth have a long life.

Holistic care is central to our philosophy. It means we always treat your dental problems in the context of your overall systemic health.

Sometimes, we use homeopathic and naturopathic remedies as an adjunct to more traditional treatments.

We always care for the individual and we seek to offer the highest standards at all times.

Meet the team responsible for delivering that care.
