A big hello from our practice manager, Julia Board
We offer a wide range of dental services under one roof, and our goal is to take the stress out of going to the dentist.
We offer a broad range of advanced and restorative dentistry and can handle complex cases. We offer dental implants, root canal therapy, cosmetic dentistry, teeth whitening, smile makeovers and teeth straightening (orthodontics) options including Invisalign aligners. We believe in consistency, so once you’re happy with your dentist, you get to keep them!
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.
Comfortable, relaxing surroundings
You can’t miss our lovely rounded white building with its bright blue awnings, just off Sidwell Street. We’ve made sure it’s a nice place to come: when you arrive, our friendly receptionists will welcome you and take your coat. While you wait, you can sink into a comfy sofa with a cup of coffee and pick up a glossy magazine. Music and fresh flowers make this seem like anywhere but a dental surgery.
We get a lot of dentist referrals
We welcome referrals from general practice dentists across Exeter and the whole of the South West.
If you’re interested in knowing more about our range of facial aesthetics treatments, please just ask.
