About Us


Our team at Blakehurst Dental understand that there is no one-size-fits-all approach to dentistry. We offer personalised dental care and customised treatment plans to suit the unique needs of our patients.

We’ll take the time to listen to you, ensuring you feel completely comfortable with your dental treatment. Our dentists will explain the treatment in detail, as we believe that informed consent is central to what we do.

From young children through to our loyal, long-term patients, we promise you’ll always feel confident and at ease when you visit our caring team at Blakehurst Dental.
