Coronavirus - COVID-19

We are Open!

We are delighted to say that we are now open again for emergency care and face to face consultations and hygiene care. We will be prioritising patient appointments according to urgency and how long they have been waiting, but we are working to catch up as soon as possible.

IMPORTANT – how to book

If you need an appointment, please don’t attend the practice to book as we can only allow people with appointments into the building at present. Contact us via phone or email and we will be able to help.

Video Consultations

We are pleased to say that we have now signed up to a video consultation platform on which we will be able to offer face to face advice from the comfort and safety of your own home. If you would like to take advantage of this service, please let us know.


We can deliver essential dental care products to regular patients living locally who are self isolating; please email the practice if you would like this service. There is no delivery charge payable.

Please follow our Instagram and Facebook pages for regular updates, advice on dental care and fun facts.

New Dentist, New Knowledge!

Celia Burns By Celia Burns on 4th October 2013

Hello everyone. I think Celia has mentioned me before but I am Ella the new dentist and have now started working at Nothing but the Tooth on Fridays. I am really enjoying it and find everyone here really does their utmost to put patients at their ease. I’ve never seen so many cups of tea be made for patients! (We also have juice, coffee, and a vast selection of teas that would probably put Starbucks to shame!) On Fridays I work with the wonderful dental nurse Rita and despite our surgery radio station preferences we get on like a house on fire and have already introduced our dogs to one another! If you haven’t already why not check out our ‘team’ section on our website to find out more about us all.

We recently had our medical emergencies update which was a really enjoyable day. We were really lucky to have a real life paramedic educating us for the day; a lovely lady called Rachel who spent all day with us and then had to go on a night shift afterwards! We definitely learned a lot, including how to do to CPR, use a defibrillator and administer lifesaving drugs at the surgery if needed. Be assured you are in safe hands. Although of course we hope that we never have to use these skills in the surgery, we are all confident in how to help anyone in distress and ensure they receive medical intervention as quickly as possible.

I hope to keep you up to date again soon and meet some more of you very shortly!

My first love isn’t teeth; it’s people. That’s why I love being a dentist. It’s the best feeling in the world to be able to help an anxious patient, who has possibly avoided going to the dentist for many years, build their trust in me, and I get a real thrill from helping someone achieve the confidence in their smile that they want.
