Serving the community for the past 30 years, our team of experienced clinicians deliver exceptional standards of clinical care.

Understanding NHS Services

We aim to provide the highest quality of care and patient experience for all our patients, regardless of the method of funding.


Unfortunately, the NHS dental system has finite resources and all dental practices must deliver NHS care within prescribed limits. There may be times when the NHS services are restricted due to funding limitations, you will always be kept informed of such times.



Official NHS Treatment Hours

This Practice is contracted to provide NHS treatment from 10.30am-1pm and 2pm-4pm (Mon– Fri). We are unable to guarantee treatment at other times.



Needs Versus Wants

Due to limited resources the NHS can only offer treatments with ‘clinical needs’. Modern Dentistry offers many treatment option, not all treatment options are therefore available on the NHS.

Limited Capacity

All NHS Dental practices are funded by local Primary Care Trusts to provide a certain ‘level of activity’, which defines the amount of NHS services available in any one financial year. All practices are therefore, only able to provide NHS services within their capacity.


The existing NHS contract imposes limitations on the number of NHS treatments we can provide in any one financial year. We regret that, at times when capacity has been breached, it may not be possible to provide you with NHS treatment (irrespective of whether you are an existing or new patient, or attending for an emergency). You may be directed to the ‘NHS Direct, Find a Dentist scheme’.


This does not affect your ability to obtain treatment here, under Private contract, only NHS care.
