Welcoming you to Smiles Better
Situated in the picturesque market town of Abergavenny, our award-winning dental practice has been providing private dental care to the local community for over 20 years. We are proud to be founder and gold members of the BDA Good Practice scheme.
Patient care is our main focus and our state-of-the-art Platinum practice aims to make your time with us as comfortable as possible.
Our clinicians offer a range of treatments including general and cosmetic dentistry, and are well known for placing dental implants. Dr Nigel Jones brings a wealth of implant experience to our practice. He has been at the forefront of advances in dental implant treatment for nearly two decades. And he has pioneered various surgical procedures and techniques which are now widely used by his peers. If you are interested in dental implants, get in touch with us to find out more.
As a specialist practice, we accept referrals for endodontics with Dr Gareth Thomas. He retains a membership in restorative dentistry (MRD) and membership in endodontics (MEndo). Gareth has passed these demanding examinations at both Royal College of Surgeons in London and Edinburgh.
We accept referrals for implants, CBCT scans and complex root canal treatment. We can also provide emergency appointments if you need to be seen quickly.
