Principal Dentist Dr John Joyce has built a team of skilled clinicians and efficient support staff, dedicated to delivering exceptional dental care and life-enhancing cosmetic and restorative dentistry.

Although we deliver our services within an ultra-modern setting, using advanced equipment and the very latest techniques, we have managed to retain a wonderfully friendly and welcoming atmosphere – and it’s been that way for over 50 years!

Our aim is to continue to offer great dentistry, with added comfort and friendliness, for many years to come.

Our dedicated team of clinicians and staff have worked tirelessly throughout the period of the pandemic to deliver essential dental services. HDS is a Covid-secure environment and the Practice has certified BDA approval for our Coronavirus safety protocols.

Happily, our full range of dental services are now available. We have greatly improved access to services by re-arranging our diaries and extending opening hours to allow early morning and evening appointments as well as throughout the whole day. This ensures excellent choice for appointments as well as keeping the density of people in the building at any time to a minimum.

We are very grateful to all our patients who have shown great understanding and support. This has been very rewarding and helped enormously with our team morale. We have been prioritising dental health issues for patients and are keen to resume any treatments with the dentist or hygienists that have been delayed. We also welcome new patient enquiries for any of our comprehensive range of treatments.

Do not hesitate to contact us whether you are an existing patient, former patient or new to HDS.

We are well-known for high quality dentistry and hygienist treatments including a wide range of services such as cosmetic dentistry, veneers, whitening, implants, Invisalign and teeth replacement.

All of our familiar faces are here to welcome you as well as some new additions to our team. We are particularly excited to introduce Sam Anthony, our new dentist. Sam has several years’ experience in General Dental Practice and Hospital dentistry. He is friendly and kind and is already proving very popular with the patients he has met so far.

We look forward to seeing you soon. Please be assured there is no reason for you to delay getting in touch. We wish you all good health and happiness in the coming months.

- Team at HDS.
