At Synergy Dental, we pride ourselves on being a friendly, welcoming Dental Practice for patients of all ages. We offer general, cosmetic and preventative dentistry, as well as restorations with dental implants.

Our Dental Practice ethos is simple: we treat people, not teeth. We work hard to build long-lasting relationships with all of our patients because we know that trust is vital when providing quality dental treatment. We do not feel like a traditional dental surgery; it is designed to be relaxing and welcoming, and every member of our dental team works hard to produce the feeling of visiting friends every time you come into the Practice.

About us

Patient focused

We're a passionate, professional team of qualified dentists and dental hygiene therapists, here to ensure a happy, healthy mouth. Each and every member of Synergy Dental is dedicated to their patients and their individual personal development; regularly attending courses and training, as well as reviewing the latest 'tried and tested' techniques to ensure the best possible methods.

Synergy Dental dentists adhere to the rules governing the profession under strict guidance from the General Dental Council (GDC) "Standards for Dental Professionals".
