At Chantry House we offer first class dental care in a relaxed and family-friendly environment. Our downstairs surgery is large and airy with views over the gardens and is easily accessible, particularly for any elderly or disabled patients. Upstairs we have a very active hygiene program where our hygienists will help you fight the battle against plaque build up and decay. Outside we have ample free parking right at the front door.
The practice, which has been established for over 16 years, features the latest in dental technology including intra-oral cameras and chair side computer screens so we can show you a detailed picture of the treatment required. We will also listen to requests as to what music you would like to hear when in the surgery so just sit back and let us take care of things.
