Why choose us
Our Dentists are backed up by four dental hygienists and a team of qualified and experienced nurses, all working towards ensuring your experience of the practice is as pleasant and stress-free as possible.
We consider Cross infection control and patient safety as a top priority. We do not undertake sterilisation procedures within the treatment areas preferring instead to utilise dedicated decontamination and sterilisation suites at each location.
We endeavour to attend to significant dental problems on the day of contact within our regular hours. You do not need to be registered with us to receive emergency treatment and we would welcome your call. The practice also operates an emergency service outside normal surgery hours where appropriate.
We offer orthodontics under the NHS and privately. We are happy to see patients from other dental practices limiting care to orthodontics only. Simple front tooth alignment is becoming increasingly popular with adults and this can often be achieved in a relatively short space of time, negating the need for destructive tooth removal for veneers.
The practice is Denplan Excel Accredited, a quality assurance programme designed as an ongoing exercise of practice and professional development. This helps to ensure that we operate in line with current thinking and comply with good practice recommendations and legislation.
We are fortunate to care for families who have three or four generations entrusting their dental well being with us. We understand the needs of each age group implicitly.
Cosmetic dentistry is a means of improving your smile or dental appearance and is available to everyone. It may address concerns as simple as a single tooth imperfection through to a full smile makeover. The most common treatment is tooth whitening which, when carried our professionally by a dentist can give superb results. Our orthodontic capabilities can help eliminate the need for thick veneer preparations in poorly aligned teeth.
We have worked closely with Dr Steve Byfield at the Raglan clinic in Harrogate for a number of years which results in a balanced and caring approach to implants combined with implant best practice. Our patients may discuss matters relating to implants without pressure to pursue this route. Whilst the surgical phase is carried out by Dr Byfield, the crown or bridgework phase is carried out by us.
Ready access to our four hygienists is a cornerstone of our preventive philosophy. This is included within Denplan care.
If you need to see a Dentist in York or the surrounding area but are unable to visit the surgery,special arrangements can be made to provide home visits for patients who are disabled, sick or housebound.
With Denplan care, you can spread the cost of routine treatment so you don’t receive any unexpected dental bills. It includes dental injury and dental emergency cover and is available also for children. There are discounts available for more than one person registering from one ‘family’.
The practices are both located in villages just outside York. There is easy (free) parking and both locations are served by a good bus service. The surgeries are accessible by wheelchair.
We understand modern lifestyles create difficulties in attending, so we are open 6 days, including Saturday mornings, and offer one late evening each week.
Payment is accepted by cash, cheque, switch or credit card. Most patients however prefer a small monthly payment through Denplan
