A specialist private clinic for dental referrals

Colchester Dental Specialist Centre provides a wide range of advanced services on behalf of general practice dentists who refer their patients to us. We offer our high-level skills, extensive experience and specialist equipment for the management of complex cases across East Anglia including North Essex, Suffolk, Cambridge and Ipswich.

Our specialists and surgeons are all very highly qualified and are well-respected in their fields. Most have been or continue to be involved in research, teaching and examining. Many have treated patients at prestigious university teaching hospitals in the UK, Europe or North America.

The ambience for our patients is very important, so we offer our advanced dental treatments within a more exclusive, relaxed and personalised environment.

Patients are referred to us by their dentists. This means we can’t take appointments made by patients (except for hygienist sessions, which can be booked direct).

Our dental referral services

We’re a multi-disciplinary centre offering advanced treatment in periodontics, endodontics, oral surgery, implants, and restorative and aesthetic dentistry. We perform full-mouth restorations, recreating the bite where teeth have been worn down. We take a conservative approach and will always try to save a tooth where possible.

Our facilities and equipment

We have five surgeries (four clinical and one for hygienist sessions) and have invested in specialist equipment to support precision diagnostics, planning and treatment. These include two high-powered microscopes for endodontic work and a low-dose CBCT scanner for 3D imaging. We’re more than happy to provide imaging-only services to dentists in general practice.

How to find us

Turn off The Crescent where you see a low-level green sign marked ‘800-896’. Continue until you see the navy blue sign ‘841-847 The Crescent’, and we’re in the corner. Please use the free parking bays for 841. For more detailed directions, do contact us.

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.
