Meet Our Team

Our team of dentists have a wealth of experience in general dental practices.

We also have two dental therapists who have brought a fresh, youthful approach to our practice, as well as a hygienist who has been with us since 1995.

Our nine fully qualified dental nurses round out our team and the majority of them also have further accreditations in radiography and oral health education.
