A private dental clinic
Located just nine miles outside Leeds City Centre, and three miles from Halifax, you’ll find the charming Yorkshire village of Lightcliffe, home to this state-of-the-art dental and implant clinic, quite unlike any you’ve visited before. We’re situated in a listed church with outstanding original features, tastefully redesigned into the modern clinic you see today.
Here at The Old Church Dental Practice, we offer private general dentistry, including check-ups and hygiene appointments as well as a wide range of specialist treatments. And we offer emergency appointments.
Our dentists are experienced in placing dental implants, including All-on-4 implant-retained dentures. And we offer a range of treatments to improve your smile. With our clear and invisible orthodontic treatments, including Invisalign, Cfast and Inman Aligners, we can straighten your teeth to help you achieve a more confident smile. We also offer smile makeovers and cosmetic bonding.
The ambience for our patients is very important, so we offer our dental treatments within a visually stunning, yet relaxed and personalised environment. The interior of the church is bright and airy and the sun that catches the beautiful stained-glass window in the late afternoon is wonderful. Our patients always comment on how relaxed and calm the Practice is and how beautiful a practice we have.
