We are a very busy, mainly NHS dental practice located in the centre of Lancaster, a university city half way between Manchester and the Lake District. There are six modern surgeries, all with networked computers and high levels of equipment, including fibre optics and X-ray machines in each surgery and a digital X-ray system. Our networked computer system facilitates easy and clear patient records, treatment planning and fee estimates as well as the benefits of digital imaging and patient education.
In July 2005 we had a major expansion and refurbishment, further improving our modern facilities, adding a fourth surgery and providing a larger and re-fitted surgery. A further expansion, providing a new fifth surgery was completed in July 2007. We have a dedicated modern decontamination room and system and are achieving best practice. A further expansion in 2016 added another downstairs surgery, improved store rooms, sterilisation equipment and staff facilities, and we appointed an additional dentist to our team.
We work mainly within the NHS but can offer private work, particularly in the field of aesthetic dentistry.
There is a relaxed, friendly working atmosphere at the practice and all dentists are given full clinical freedom. We are very lucky to attract reliable, hardworking, friendly staff and we maintain informal, excellent working relationships. Our staff are encouraged to attend courses and our dental nurses are all registered with the GDC. We also have two trainee dental nurses currently attending the NVQ3 Dental Nursing course.
