About Us

The Crescent Dental Practice was established in 1997. During planning and building, patient safety and comfort was paramount. The ergonomics incorporated into the design means that the practice is light, open, comfortable, relaxing and safe.

The whole practice is at ground floor level allowing easy access for all.

Over the years there has been a substantial investment for the benefit of our patients. The practice boasts air conditioning, full computerisation, intra-oral camera and digital photography, digital x-rays, and many other state of the art items of health equipment.

Our digital x-ray system significantly reduces the diagnostic dose level compared to the conventional x-ray film method.

We are lucky to have local artist Stephen Baker exhibit his outstanding paintings on our walls. If you want to know more about this accomplished artist and see his work visit http://www.bakergraphis.com

We have achieved the British Dental Association Good Practice Scheme Award for each consecutive year from 2011 to 2022, proving that we are one of the top dental practices in the UK.
