• Dental Practice @ Number 24

We provide NHS service to all our patients. As well as carrying out NHS Dental Treatment we offer Private cosmetic treatment which your dentist will be happy to discuss with you.

At this practice, we have a Dental Hygienist, who as well as cleaning your teeth will offer you guidance and information on how to maintain or improve good oral hygiene.

For patients interested in orthodontics we offer clear braces in the form of Invisalign as well as C-Fast to help you create the perfect smile, just ask our Reception team and we will be happy to book you in for a free consultation.

We also offer dental implants – this is an effective way of replacing missing teeth without having dentures. You can spread the costs to make it manageable and we now offer 0% Dental finance. For more information on North Shields Dental finance please contact our practice.

Additionally, Enlighten Professional Teeth Whitening is available at North Shields, as well as Sleep Well Anti-snore devices – ask us for more information.

We offer our patients emergency appointments within 48 hours of contacting the practice. Payments are able to be made using cash or credit/debit cards. All information about patients at this practice is confidential.

We’d be delighted to hear from you!
