Home is where the heart is. We put our heart and soul into our patient care.
Offering NHS and Private Dentistry in Liverpool
Our Mission Statement
We called ourselves ‘The Dental House’ because we want our patients to feel at ‘Home’. From the environment that we create to the way in which clients are spoken to, we want people to feel comfortable when they visit our practice. We are passionate about making all appointments as stress-free and pleasant as possible.
Prevention is key to our mind-set and we endeavour to inform and support the people that we take care of so that they are able to take care of their own oral health in a way that prevents major dental issues from developing.
Community spirit is important to us. We are proud of our location and the patients that we serve and we strive to spread positive messages regarding oral health to those around us.
We want to make our patients happy. Whether through dealing with dental problems on a functional level, or helping people to achieve a great-looking set of teeth, we want clients to be pleased about their treatment and proud of their smile.
The Dental House is committed to keeping up-to-date with the progression of dentistry. We are passionate about the continuous learning and professional development of our staff so that we may pass on all the benefits of the most modern dentistry and techniques to our patients.
