About Us

Dental excellence. Compassionate care.

The Practice

At Martlesham Heath Dental Practice our aim is to promote dental health at all times so that together we can prevent dental disease rather than treat it at a later date. For this reason we recommend regular dental check-ups. 

 

Over the years we have developed experience in all aspects of dental care and are happy to discuss any aspects of your treatment and answer any questions you may have.  We aim to provide the dental care that meets your needs and wishes.

Dental treatment for our adult patients is carried out privately but their children are seen under NHS arrangements, which is free up to the age of 18 (or 19 if in full time education).

Our dental hygienist is able to advise on oral hygiene procedures as well as providing scaling and polishing of your teeth. This will help to ensure that your gums remain healthy which is the basis for good dental and medical health.  A full range of dental hygiene products are available to purchase.

As a caring practice we take all necessary precautions to safeguard both patients and staff against blood-borne infections such as Aids and Hepatitis.  We follow Department of Health guidelines on cross infection control and use disposable single use items whenever possible. All other instruments are cleaned and sterilised in our newly installed decontamination room and our sterilisers undergo regular verification tests.

You can make an appointment by telephoning the practice or calling in during surgery hours.

If you are unable to keep your appointment please let us know as soon as possible, ideally with at least 24 hours notice.  This enables us to make alternative arrangements – perhaps to see someone in pain.  There will be a charge for appointments broken without notice.

If you are in pain during surgery hours please telephone at 9am and every effort will be made to see you as soon as possible. Outside normal surgery hours the practice answerphone message will give details of the emergency service available.

The Team

Our team are here to make your visit as comfortable and straight-forward as possible.  We are committed to continuing training and are all registered with the General Dental Council.
