No Obligation Invitation

It is a really difficult decision to choose a new dentist and we want to make that decision easier. We invite you to come for a free no obligation dental examination worth £85

A thorough examination including x-rays if required will be carried out. We will discuss any treatment needs and costs with you. After your examination there is no obligation to join the practice but if you would like to, then we would love to have you as a new patient.

Patient Services

We take time to understand what you want and we try to explain treatment options and costs in plain English. We provide dental care for the whole family with our philosophy based on prevention.

We offer the following cosmetic dental treatments- tooth whitening, composite bonding, bridges, crowns and veneers. We offer treatment and support for gum disease.

Auckland Dental Practice exceeds the current basic compliance requirements by being a Denplan Excel accredited practice.

We have pay as you go or Denplan payment options available.


 We use DEPPA (Denplan Previsor Patient Assessment) which is an innovative patient assessment tool. Our patients receive a colour coded oral health report  highlighting areas of greatest concern regarding current oral health status and future disease risk. With professional support and advice we can guide you to help improve your oral health. It’s a bit like having a dental health MOT!

People Say

“I feel very fortunate that my dental health is in Alison’s care as the trust I have in her is implicit. Regardless of whether my appointment is for a check -up or treatment I am confident that I am receiving the best possible care. This has helped quell any anxieties previously felt on approaching visits to the dentist. Alison explains everything so I am assured that any decisions made are done with the utmost consideration for my welfare.’’

Mrs S. Thomas

“My wife and I have been patients at Auckland Dental Practice since moving to the area 7 years ago.  We cannot praise them highly enough for the care and treatment received there.  We would not hesitate recommending them to anyone for dental care.”

Mr J Neve -Smith

“I have been a patient in excess of 20 years; staff are always pleasant and professional and appointments are made at short notice when in pain. On a personal note, my teeth/mouth have had many problems that some dentists would have given up on and dentures would have been prescribed.  Mr Greenwell has always found a solution for me to retain my own teeth. He has treated me, my children and grandchildren. He is  especially patient with my brother who is handicapped and now has no fear of dental visits, due to the manner of Mr Greenwell’s personal involvement. I  cannot recommend this practice enough.”

Mrs N Renwick

“I have been a patient at Auckland Dental Practice for nearly 7 years, during this time I have found the staff to be friendly, courteous but above all professional. Mr Brown is always helpful, knowledgeable and current about the treatments and advice offered. The practice is flexible with regard to appointment times. Tracy and her team are welcoming and always on hand with appointment reminders and appointments at short notice when needed.”

Mrs J Cooper

I use Auckland Dental Practice because from the time you walk in the door till the time you leave you are well looked after. The ease and flexibility of the appointment system is good with evening appointments. A great bonus for people who find it hard for daytime appointments. All the staff make the visit to the dentist less daunting .”

Mr L Ebdon

Just to say thank you for the excellent treatment I always receive on every visit. Auckland Dental Practice is, by far, the best practice I have used in terms of treatment, support and patient welfare. I feel that the staff go above and beyond to ensure the best possible service in every aspect.  Many thanks.

Mr S Heritage

Needed some urgent treatment this morning – Tracy managed to get me seen to in less than two hours which was great – then Alison did what she does and the result is excellent – top class professional in every way – she makes it all look so easy which, of course, it isn’t – I feel so much better for the treatment. Thank you.
