There has been a dental practice at Southlands for over 30 years.
In 1988 the practice was taken over by Mr. Andrew Furniss who was the sole practice owner until the Autumn of 2002.
Mrs. Ann Wren (nee Stamp) joined the practice in 1994.
Mr. Richard Bentley joined the practice in Autumn 2001, closely followed by Mrs. Cathy Bentley in the Spring of 2002. Mr. Bentley offers evening surgeries on Mondays and Tuesdays.
Since October 2002 the practice has been jointly owned and run by the two principals, Mr. Furniss and Mr. Bentley.
All of our surgeries are located on the ground floor of the practice, which makes access much easier.
The practice also employs a Dental Therapist, Mrs. Claire Shearer. She is particularly skilled at promoting a preventative approach to dental care to improve the oral health of our patients. Claire has a particular interest in encouraging good oral health for the children who attend the practice. Her advice on toothbrushing and the "tooth care packs" for children continue to be very popular!
