Dental Excellence for All the Family

Every smile is important to us.

From the youngest member of your family to the oldest, dental concerns exist at every stage of life. We’re here to help you and your family maintain the best standard of dental health by providing you with exceptional care.

Our friendly team works hard to help everyone feel at ease. Whether helping a very young child with their first appointment, a teenager, or an adult, we’re keen to educate and preserve the health of teeth and gums both in the short term—and for life.

A lifetime of good oral health starts at birth, and we’re here to support you as you help your children first learn how to care for their teeth. We believe that prevention is always better than cure. With this in mind, our care is centred on helping you create healthy habits to keep your teeth looking great.


Preventative Dental Checkups

Caring for your smile means maintaining good oral hygiene, enjoying a healthy lifestyle, and visiting us regularly for a checkup.

Although you may not feel any pain or discomfort in your teeth or gums now, that’s not to say that you won’t in the future. With a routine checkup, we can spot the early warning signs of dental problems, while they’re still reversible—before the unwelcome toothache.

Once tooth decay creates a cavity, all we can do is repair it. The damaged enamel won’t grow back. However, if we spot an area of your tooth where decay could soon strike, we can help you stop the damage while strengthening your teeth.

Dental checkups are one of the best ways to defend against cavities, gum disease, and a range of other health concerns, including oral cancer. If you’ve previously received treatment or experienced changes in your dentition, we can monitor these during a routine appointment to ensure your teeth and gums are as healthy as possible.


What to Expect at Your Dental Checkup

During your routine visit to Hale Dental, you can expect us to ask you a few questions about your dental and general health. This is an opportunity to let us know if there have been any changes or if you have any worries about your oral health.

We’ll physically examine your teeth individually. During this visual inspection, we’ll look for early signs of decay, such as weakened enamel. Your gum health is also important, so we’ll also look for indications of gingivitis.

We may take x-rays of your teeth and jaws. This helps us get a clearer picture of your oral health and helps us spot any reduction in bone mass.

If we see any issues, we’ll discuss them with you and provide you with all the facts and cost so you can make an informed treatment decision.


Treating Tooth Decay and Gum Disease

When decay and gum disease strike, you may feel inclined to ignore any dental discomfort in the hope it will go away. Toothache and sore or bleeding gums are signs that you need treatment. Without intervention, your dental issues could get worse.

If you have a cavity, we recommend treatment as soon as possible. Typically, this will involve placing a filling into the affected area of the tooth to repair the damage and prevent infection.

Fillings are a quick and simple procedure. Before placing your filling, we’ll give you a local anaesthetic to help numb around the treatment site. We often use tooth-coloured fillings in visible areas of your smile.

What Patients Say

It’s totally worth it!

After an accident, poor repair work with bridges left Phil facing difficulties with speech and low on confidence. So how does he rate implants from the Hale Dental team? He says they’re better than the real thing!

Just go for it!

Guy discovered Hale Dental following a recommendation from his dentist. He says implants from Hale Dental have restored his confidence and put a spring back in his step. And the procedure turned out to be much more comfortable than expected.

Can’t help but smile!

Years of dental neglect left Adrienne’s teeth in a poor state, but she didn’t like the idea of living with dentures. She says implants from Hale Dental were worth every penny—and meeting Dr Richard Brookshaw definitely made an impression!


Our 5* Reviews

Really happy with the service provided, special thank you to Nina, who was really patient with me (I am a very nervous customer). This is not the first time I attend Hale Dental, considering it is quite far from where I live, I will still be using their services. Highly recommend.”
“Never previously used but was put in contact via my dentist due to a problematic implant that was unable to be fixed. Despite being the week before Christmas, they fitted me in at very short notice, everyone was extremely pleasant and professional, from Megan who called to arrange the appointment and welcomed me on site to Richard, the implantologist who explained everything clearly and succinctly. The icing on the cake was that he solved my problem despite the implant system being one he had never encountered previously. Delighted to recommend to any prospective clients. The surgery is very clean, professional and welcoming.”
Tony Wood
“Super professional friendly and Covid safe environment. All staff makes me feel welcome and treats me like vip patient. Booking procedure smooth and reminder email/ text of my appointments, “ never a problem” attitude to changes or re-schedule appointment. A special mention to Bernadette, Nina, Sophie, Richard and the ladies assisting during treatment. If you visit Hale Dental , you never fear going to the dentist again.”
Valeria Palladi
“Nothing but praises for the professionals at Hale Dental Clinic. My case was a bit complicated – had to get dental implants. The thought of it sent shivers down my spine. But the team, my goodness, they made the whole experience practically painless. From the first consultation to the aftercare, everything was just spot-on. They took their time to explain every step, answering all my questions, putting my fears to rest. The environment was calming, and the staff, incredibly welcoming. For anyone who’s been putting off getting their dental issues sorted due to fear, Hale Dental Clinic is the place to go.”
Rasla Mero
“My first visit to the clinic was very positive. I am extremely anxious at dental appointments but they were so patient with me. Everything was done to minimise my anxiety. I feel confident going ahead now, with a full programme of implant work in the next few months. This is a huge step for me and I have full confidence in the team I met at the clinic who explained the whole procedure to me. Thank you! This dentophobe is actually looking forward to starting treatment.”
Diana Lorenz
“Such good care at Hale Dental. Everyone there is so kind and efficient- I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend- and I have done!”
Dawn McStravick
“I would highly recommend Hale Dental and Implant Clinic to everyone. They are not just professional but extremely kind, helpful and sensitive at what can be a very nervous time. From Hayley on reception who was so friendly and took time out to explain there were road works and it may delay my journey, to Donna, my care coordinator, who was so positive and reassuring to Jonny my dentist who is the most understanding and patient practitioner I have come across in all my time visiting the dentist. I would not go any where else. Thank you to all of you.”
Lisa Darlington
“Going to the dentist can be a stressful experience, but every time I go to Hale Dental it’s a dream! Everyone is so lovely and inviting that it makes the experience as pleasant as it can be! Highly recommended!”
Albena Ivanova
“Great service overall, pre-surgery appointments, the surgery day itself and post-surgery care. Very well handled by Richard, Jonny and team.”
