Facilities for the Disabled

We have a ground floor surgery, which is suitable for the disabled. There is however a small step leading to the surgery and therefore it may not be suitable for the severely disabled

Prevention

Children are always welcome however young they are. We aim to prevent dental disease rather than treat it at a later date

Car Parking

The practice has its own car park at the back of the property. Car park is accessed by the first gate on Toddington Road. Some of the car park is slabbed. There is enough room for about 6 cars. There is also a convenient pay and display on Toddington Road. Please feel free to use our car park. The car park is for the patient's use entirely at the car drivers/owners own risk.
