Our Focus? It’s You!

Here at The Keith Dental Practice, our main focus is on our patients’ needs. We also realise we have a responsibility to continually innovate and educate in order to provide the highest possible of professional dental care.

We work hard together as a team with our monthly staff/dentist meetings. We work hard individually on our postgraduate education to make sure our skills are the very best. We work to the highest clinical governance standard for general practice.

Our Dental Team is regulated by the General Dental Council. A link to their website can be found here.
