Our staff currently comprises of 6 friendly and professional dental nurses who are dedicated in providing quality care and treatment at the highest standard and are committed to the latest cross infection control guidelines.
The Practice: Staveley Dental Care is a purpose built practice which was first established in 2010. Initially having 3 modern surgeries, a designated sterilisation room in accordance with the latest guidelines, a large staff room complete with kitchen, two waiting areas, a store room and multiple toilet facilities, all with full disabled access. In 2018 the practice was extended to produce a fully equipped 4th surgery and a larger reception and waiting area for our growing patient base.
Each of the surgeries is equipped with state of the art equipment including an intra- oral digital x-ray machine in each room. Other equipment available to use at the practice includes; a WaveOne rotary endodontic system, OPT facilities and all the latest in dental materials. The practice is fully computerised using Software of Excellence and we continually strive towards becoming fully digital, CliniPads are currently used for patients to sign documentation to reduce the need for paper.
The practice is proud to be an iMOS provider, meaning we accept MOS referrals from other GDPs in the area through a digital referral system. This provides an excellent opportunity for an FD with an interest in this area to shadow a specialist surgeon on sessions that include the provision of IV sedation. Additional opportunities linked to the practice include gaining an understanding about working in the Community service and going out on domiciliary visits.
The team here at Staveley Dental Care are laid back and friendly and occasionally organise social events to improve team building and solidify relationships. We organise regular peer- review meetings, combining education with socialising amongst colleagues.

There are already over 5000 patients registered with the practice from all walks of life, giving a variety of treatment requirements and filling a much-needed gap in NHS dental care in the region. The patient base is mainly NHS, but we also offer a wide range of private treatment in all aspects of Restorative and Cosmetic Dentistry including dental implants and fixed orthodontics.
