All the dentists at this Practice accept patients for NHS treatment. The Practice has agreed with NHS England (NHS Commissioning Board), Durham, Darlington and Tees Area Team (AT) to provide NHS services for patients.
We have 7 surgeries which are all disabled friendly. We have disabled toilet facilities - braille signage and hearing loops. The Practice also has a lift.
