East Street Dental Surgery is an independent, non-corporate, family-friendly practice, passionate about providing our patients with modern dental solutions.

At East Street Dental Surgery our core values are to act in the best interest of our patients, putting the patients’ needs first, and to build an ongoing relationship.

Our Dental Surgery has been a part of the local community for over 30 years. We value our patients’ well-being, and treat every client like a member of our extended family.

Our welcoming ambience and caring healthcare professionals have helped our practice maintain a family atmosphere and steady popularity over the years.

East Street’s very spacious, modern waiting room and clinical areas offer natural light with large windows and skylights, making your dental experience as comfortable and stress-free as possible.

In 2016, as part of our ongoing modernisation, we re-purposed our holdings into a two-surgery practice, and we have recently added a new third surgery to accommodate the increased demand for our services.

Our dedication to continuous modernisation and using the most up-to-date treatments and techniques ensure you receive the best care available.
