We have been established for over 60 years and serve patients from the whole of Bognor Regis and Chichester, as well as their surrounding villages. We are conveniently situated in Felpham village with free car park and bus stop only 5 minutes’ walk away.

As a fully private practice, we offer a choice of ‘pay as you go’ for your dental treatment or Denplan to help spread the cost. In-house payment plans are also available to make treatments affordable.

Our highly experienced dentists and their team will do their best to ensure your dental care meets your individual needs and will discuss the proposed treatment and treatment options with you, giving you time to ask questions and consider the alternatives.

Our wide range of treatments covers all aspects of dentistry from preventative care and direct access to hygienist services through to advance restorative treatments such as crowns, veneers and replacing missing teeth with bridges, dental implants and dentures. Amalgam-free dentistry and cosmetic treatments such as tooth whitening, smile makeovers and facial aesthetics are also available.

We understand that some people may feel frightened of the dentist and suffer from anxiety but whether this is due to a bad experience from the past, a fear of needles or a genuine phobia of dental treatment, we are here to help.

“One patient said, ‘I have been coming here for years and I cannot praise it highly enough. The dentist is superb, communication is good, and the dental nurse and reception staff are excellent…’
