Market Place Dental Practice is a long established, modern private dental practice in the heart of the Cotswolds. We offer comprehensive, state of the art dental care for the whole family in a friendly and relaxed environment.
Our five modern, high-tech air-conditioned surgeries enable us to offer the latest techniques using the highest quality materials under stringent cross-infection control.
We follow strict recommended guidelines with regard to the sterilisation of instruments and use disposable items wherever possible.
Preventive Dentistry - Maintain Your Smile
The main emphasis at the practice is to encourage long term oral health, this means attending the practice on a regular basis for examinations and hygiene sessions.
We take great pride in the quality of our care and aim to make your visits as relaxed and pleasant as possible. With a preventive approach, we will work with you to keep your mouth healthy and reduce the need for future treatment.
Your dentist will advise you about the various options available and will always provide you with a written treatment plan and estimate of costs before proceeding with any treatment.
All the Dentists at our practice routinely use magnifying loupes to aid diagnosis and treatment. The mouth is essentially a very small, dark environment to work in. We know that without magnification it is very difficult to provide a consistently high level of fine detail required for long lasting modern restorative and preventative treatment.
