NEW PATIENTS ARE
As one of Northern Ireland’s leading dental practices we offer the latest techniques as standard. We also take the time to listen to your individual needs. By matching our best procedures to your high expectations, together we will create the best treatment for you. The success of our practice is based on this philosophy and has been for more than 50 years.
Going to the dentist isn’t on most people’s list of favourite things to do. We understand that and it’s precisely why we do everything we can to make your visit as pleasant as possible. It’s also why people of Newtownabbey and beyond have trusted us to be their family dentist since 1966.
We’ve built our dental practice on generation of families, both locally and throughout the UK and Ireland, and we have done so by taking the time to not only provide the best possible treatment and results, but by making our patients feel relaxed and comfortable.
Any time of life is the perfect time to start a healthy dental routine and we encourage people of all ages to visit us for a consultation- whether it’s your first time or the first time in awhile.
Not only are we experts in all aspects of modern dentistry, we also take the time to carefully assess your individual needs and offer bespoke advice about the care of your teeth and gums. Our unique approach to Preventative Dentistry can actually reduce your need for certain treatments as well as give you a better understanding of the link between oral health and the rest of your body.

When you visit our practice for the first time the first thing you may notice is our comfortable and professional environment. You will be greeted by a member of our friendly reception team who will be happy to answer any questions you might have.
We also ask that you arrive a few minutes early if possible to give yourself plenty of time to fill out any necessary paperwork such as our Medical Questionnaire and Smile Check (available for download here).
Next, our team member will talk to you about our maintenance plan. Though having a plan isn’t necessary, the majority of our independent patients do sign up for it as it gives you access to many discounted prices on our most common procedures. Dental and oral health is more than just a pretty smile- it affects your overall well-being. We will help create your own Personalised Dental Plan, which includes regular visits to our practice, to help ensure any future problems are spotted early, thereby requiring potentially less complex procedures.
Finally, you will be taken to one of our treatment rooms for a private consultation with your new dental team. We’ll ask you a few questions about your expectations or any issues you may have, perform a thorough dental examination and then work with you to create a personalised dental plan.
Then we’ll give you a full written quotation and organise a time for your follow-up appointment at a time that best suits you.
