Welcome to Arnica Dental Care

We are a private practice situated in Leckhampton in South Cheltenham. Established for almost 20 years, our friendly team of dentists, hygienists and dental nurses offer a wide range of dental treatment and care to local, regional and national patients.

For patients who are nervous, anxious or dental phobic, we pride ourselves on minimising discomfort and anxiety using a combination of gentle dentistry and dental sedation. In the Private Dentistry Awards in 2017 and 2018 we achieved Runner Up for Best Treatment of Nervous Patients.

Treatments for the whole family

We provide general dental care for the whole family, cosmetic dentistry treatments, and restorative dentistry including single, multiple and all-on-4 dental implant procedures. We also offer emergency appointments to existing patients and non-patients if they choose to join the practice.

Branded treatments and services

Whitening can be an important part of a smile makeover. We always check the suitability of your teeth, as it may not be recommended for some patients with high sensitivity. It’s important to know that we may not be able to treat all of your teeth: whitening can’t alter the colour of fillings, crowns, veneers, for example. Your dentist can explain and suggest any options open to you.

We do understand that some people really struggle with dental treatment. But we have lots of ways to help put you at ease. Please just tell us how you feel and what worries you, and then we can work together to decide on the right approach.

Generally we recommend twice yearly check-ups every six months. However, this varies on a case by case basis. Your Bupa Dental Care dentist will talk to you about when and how often we need to see you.

No, Bupa Dental Care practices are open to everyone. If you do have Bupa dental insurance, at selected practices we can guide you through your claim.

First, please check that our practice offers the services you’re looking for, then simply use the referral form on our contact page. Do feel free to give us a call and tell us what you’re looking for.
