North Street Dental staff group

About us

A patient once asked me what makes North Street Dental and Implant Clinic so successful. My answer was simple: You do.

Everything that has been developed at this independent, family-friendly dental practice is the sum total of our patients’ wishes. Early on we determined that whoever came through our doors they should leave having had a good experience with us.

We are about permanence and seeing the same dentist; we’re about high-end quality; and about achieving happy clinical outcomes for our patients. We are also about getting to know those for whom we are privileged to care and about patients knowing our clinicians.

We’re about consistency – we’re not going anywhere – and we’re about re-imagining the experience of going to the dentist.

Our commitment is to offer a caring, intelligent analysis of your dental aspirations and do all we can to make them happen.

The core ethos of our clinic is a direct result of listening and responding.

Our patients wanted a secure, off-road car park and now we have ample, safe parking on the premises; they asked for easy wheelchair access, and a level entry point – the steep steps at the front are no longer used, and we have a drop-off point directly by our reception area at the rear of the building; they wanted airy, light, ground-floor surgeries and we now have two as well as another couple on the first floor; and they wanted to know we care – we certainly do, and we undertake to engage with our patients at every stage of their treatment journey.

My team is enthusiastic about the dentistry we provide – for me the ultimate creative fusion of science and art – and we are continually driven by the synergy of its life-changing potential.

Want to know more? Why not call the clinic or drop in to see what we can do for you.
