We are delighted to have NHS England as our Partners in the care of our patients.
They have awarded us contracts to deliver dental care from our 12 dedicated Dental Health Centres.
NHS Contract Awards – “passionate about dentistry “and investment in dental care. Read More
Many of our Centres are modern purpose built clinics and are often complimented with medical services benefitting from a medical polyclinic environment.
We have invested over £3 million pounds in premises and in 2015 our newest site in Chilton is a new polyclinic worth a further £1.8 million.
All of our Centres have state of the art digital diagnostic equipment and the newest evidence based techniques to care for our patients.
Because of our expertise we have been awarded NHS contracts from the Department of Health and Justice to provide dental services from an additional 7 dedicated clinics spanning from Northumberland in the North to the West Coast of the lakes!
Our Clinic in Ferryhill is one of the longest running dental postgraduate training practices in the North East – over 25 years old.
We have been awarded 3 recognised postgraduate Dental training contracts and 3 of our clinicians have been appointed Educational supervisors for Health Education North East.
NHS England has awarded us a contract to accept referrals for Patients who need sedation to manage anxiety during Dental treatment.
This is led by an experienced dental Sedationist as well as a Specialist Anaesthetist.
We are proud that 2 of our sites have been selected as “prototype” sites to deliver a new “NHS reformed contract “. This will allow us to be part of the National innovators in what we hope to be a further improved NHS contract for our patients and clinicians.
