Our Dental Practice in West Moors near Ferndown and Bournemouth in Dorset, has been established since 1962. It has grown from being a single handed practice to have 3 Dentists and 2 Hygienist Therapists. We provide comprehensive dental care and are able to provide advanced treatments, such as orthodontics and replacing missing teeth or stabilising dentures via dental implants.
Ours is a ground floor practice, making access easy for pushchairs, elderly and disabled patients, including those in wheelchairs. There is also a reserved parking space in our car park for disabled patients. For other patients there is ample parking close by in Moorlands Road. Please respect our neighbours and ensure that you do not block their access when you park.
We believe in working as a team with all members of our staff and our patients, which gives our practice a friendly and relaxed atmosphere, reducing the stresses and anxieties which are often associated with dental treatment. Prevention is better than cure, and our aim is to help you look after your teeth and gums at home, as well as within the practice.
Our practice is mainly for private and Denplan patients. We do have a small NHS list for children, which is almost full. Please contact us if you would like to book your family with our practice.

He is able to provide most of the orthodontic care within the practice. He is a member of the British Dental Association, Faculty of General Dental Practice of the Royal College of Surgeons, British Orthodontic Society and also the Association of Dental Implantology.

John qualified from the University of Bristol in 2003 and started his first job in Swanage in the same year. Having spent two enjoyable years working there and learning about life in general practice he then took up a job as a Senior House Officer in Oral and Maxillofacial surgery at Southampton Hospital. This job involved carrying out oral surgery on a day-to-day basis as well as looking after in-patients on the ward. It gave an excellent grounding in surgical technique and enabled him to sit the exams to become a Member of the Faculty of Dental Surgeons of the Royal College of Surgeons (England).
John is trained in using the Cfast cosmetic orthodontic system. This a discreet system for use in adults which can improve the appearance of crowded or crooked teeth for a more even smile.
After the time spent working in hospital John wanted to return to general practice and settled into a private clinic in Shaftesbury. He enjoys being able to provide good quality dental care and though able to provide general dental services he is particularly interested in root-fillings and aesthetic restorative solutions. Through clear communication and a gentle approach patients feel at ease and involved in their care at all times.
Away from dentistry John enjoys getting away with his young family and exploring in their campervan. When time allows you may find him hacking through the undergrowth on a local golf course or cycling through the lanes.
