The Practice: The practice is part of the corporate Mydentist, (previously IDH). We also have 2 hygienists and supporting dental care professionals. The practice is an Advanced Oral Health Centre and offers a wide range of treatments including orthodontics, minor oral surgery, prosthetics, endodontics, implants and cosmetic procedures. We have OPG and CBCT scanning facilities to meet up to these advanced procedures.
The surgeries have computerised records for appointments and administration. We have an online booking system for patients, and are currently setting up 2 surgeries to provide mentoring services for the placing of implants. All surgeries are equipped with digital radiography
We have a cross infection control centre which processes all the equipment, and all surgeries have the latest safety syringes.
Team members participate in CPD, audit, peer review and appraisal. We have regular practice meetings.
The property has grown over the years, with the main building (1860) housing the surgeries and C.I.C. Centre, and the purpose built extension (1996) the entrance, reception waiting facilities, staff rooms and changing facilities.
