Our fully private dental practice is situated in Cardiff city centre with a small car park to the rear and is close to Queen Street train station as well as multiple bus stops.

We have a remarkable team including our two dedicated hygienists Alison and Carly, and our multi-talented Kate, Lucy, Kim and Jo, who are our committed dental nurses, administrative team and treatment coordinators. They are happy to offer one-to-one advice on all of our treatments by phone or in person. We will endeavour to accommodate you in every way we can and your dental health and smile is as important to us as it is to you.

He has invested a lot of time and energy into using and understanding this state-of-the-art orthodontic system which is a comfortable and discreet alternative to fixed metal braces.
