about us

Ocean dental is a modern friendly practice with an emphasis on quality not quantity. Building a rapport with our patients is very important to us and being a small genuinely caring team enables us to give you an exceptional personal service. Our practice is built on word of mouth alone, with the majority of our patients coming from personal recommendation through existing patients.

We take great pride in everything we do, giving attention to the smallest details. Before opening, the building was renovated to a very high standard to provide an atmosphere that is comfortable, spacious and light. The aim – to make your experience pleasant and relaxed.

One of our natural skills that sets us apart is our ability to listen to you, giving you the individual attention you need and deserve. We always discuss your treatment with you at every stage, giving you a range of options and helping you to make informed choices.

Our philosophy…
                          …we are committed to providing you with the best quality treatment at an affordable price in a relaxed and friendly environment.

We look forward to welcoming you to ocean dental.
