A big hello from our practice manager, Julia Board

Our luxurious, private dental practice in Exeter City Centre offers a wide range of dental services under one roof, and our goal is to take the stress out of going to the dentist. We believe in consistency, so once you’re happy with your dentist, you’ll see them every time you visit us.

We’ve made sure our practice is a relaxing place to come to. When you arrive, our friendly receptionists will welcome you and take your coat. While you wait, you can sink into one of our comfy chairs with a cup of coffee and a glossy magazine.

Dental treatments and services

We offer a broad range of advanced and restorative dentistry and can handle complex cases. We offer general dental services, including private check-ups and hygiene appointments, as well as cosmetic services such as teeth whitening and full smile makeovers.

Teeth straightening is also available, including discreet Invisalign treatment to help straighten your smile using near-invisible aligners.

We’re experienced in placing dental implants. Find out more about our implant services.

We welcome referrals from general dentists across Exeter and the whole of the South West. Get in touch to learn more about our referral services or refer a patient.

Nervous patients

We understand how tough it can be if you’re anxious or even phobic about going to the dentist. Lots of nervous patients come to us because we really do get it. We believe in ‘gentle dentistry’ and may be able to offer conscious sedation during treatment. In reception, adult colouring books and stress balls can help take your mind off things.

How to find us

You can’t miss our lovely rounded white building with its bright blue awnings, just off Sidwell Street. There’s nearby pay-and-display parking in the car park by John Lewis or in Howell Road.

Exeter station is just a six-minute walk from us and all the local bus routes go through the city centre. If you’re cycling to us, there’s a bike rack just outside 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.
