Latest update November 2020
Following the government’s lockdown announcement of 31st October 2020, the practice remains open for all patients.
Please attend for your appointment as usual, unless you hear from us.
Your health is our priority and we are taking all measures to protect you and our staff.

But here are a few new things we want you to know about before you come and see us

  • Please attend only if you have an appointment
  • You will be phoned by your dentist on the day of your appointment to check you are well
  • With the exception of children and patients in need of support or supervision, please come into the practice alone
  • Please arrive for your appointment at the appointed time and come straight into the practice
  • Please wear a face covering whilst in the reception area
  • Please try to bring as few items as possible with you
  • On entering the practice, you will be asked to sanitise your hands and your temperature will be taken using a contactless thermometer
  • We will look quite different wearing our PPE (Personal Protective Equipment) and will not be able to shake your hand – but we will still be as friendly!
  • Once back in reception, a distance of at least 2 metres must be observed. Payment should preferably be by card and you will be asked to sanitise your hands before using the card machine
  • Following the appointment, if you develop COVID symptoms in the next 14 days, please ring and inform our receptionist

We are taking these measures to improve your safety and ours

Thank you for your co-operation and we look forward to seeing you

Welcome to the Oaks Dental Practice

The Oaks Dental Practice is a small, family run private dental practice. We provide a place where you can feel comfortable, be listened to with respect, and given time to discuss all aspects of your dental needs. We pride ourselves on our relaxed and friendly atmosphere, offering quality and professional dentistry in our modern facilities.

Our convenient location in Eldwick has plenty of free parking, in a purpose built complex with a pharmacy, GP surgery, and a coffee shop, all in one place. Within the practice there is also a podiatrist / chiropodist (Nufeet) providing a convenient service to our patients.

Click here to meet our friendly and dedicated team.

The Oaks Dental Practice opened in January 2012, in response to the people of Eldwick and Gilstead’s desire to have more medical facilities in the village.

Most of our team has been at the Oaks from the beginning and there is always a friendly face to meet you on arrival.

Our purpose-built facility meets all the high specifications required by the General Dental Council and the Care Quality Commission.
