About the Dental Practice
The Dental Practice is situated in Tangmere near Chichester just off the A27. This makes us easily accessible from Arundel, Bognor Regis, Emsworth and Portsmouth as well. The practice is in a peaceful rural location overlooking playing fields and is adjoined to the village centre with which we share a large free car park including disabled spaces.
All facilities are ground floor and so are disabled friendly, with most treatment rooms being wheelchair accessible.
Being away from busy public places the practice is accessible with privacy and dignity when leaving or arriving for treatment.
We are proud to be a family run independent practice with a low turnover of staff so you get continuity of care seeing the same clinician year-in-year-out.
Established in 1988 originally in a combined Medical & Dental Centre. The entire building was acquired by the dental practice and refurbishment commenced in 2010. The treatment rooms are modern with all the latest facilities to enable us to provide the most up to date treatments in a comfortable environment. The practice has invested in several items of specialised equipment so most advanced treatments can be completed on site.
We undergo regular third-party validation to achieve Denplan Excel accreditation and our recent Care Quality Commission inspection gave an excellent report. See report here.
Large Free Car Park
The practice has a separate decontamination and sterilisation facility.
All dental practices will need to comply with new regulations in instrument decontamination and storage to further reduce the risk of cross-infection and increase safety. We have a fully installed and operational unit that processes and stores all equipment used in your mouth in sterile instrument packs achieving Gold Standard and best practice. We also make maximum use of completely disposable items and covers.
We also employ computerised barcode tracking procedures so that instruments can be traced back to validated decontamination and sterilisation processes.
We have been published in the Dental Press for our Groundbreaking facility, the first in the UK.
Clinic’s 1 & 3 have easy wheelchair access. Normally used by the Dentists, but there are sessions on a weekly basis where the Dental Therapists will use these rooms giving disabled patients full access to all the services the practice offers.
Clinic 2 has limited wheelchair access. A patient would need to be able to stand and move a couple of steps to access this room.
All surgeries have access to state of the art equipment including video screens for treatment diagnosis and education. These display relaxing images during treatment to make this pass more easily.
Clinic’s 1 & 2 have high weight capacity chairs able to lift patient up to 33 stone. Clinic 3 is limited to 22 stone (please advise if required).
