About Whickham Dental Practice

 

Whickham Dental Practice has been established in Whickham, Newcastle upon Tyne for over 50 years. Our award winning team of professionals are fully committed to your dental health. With over 120 years combined experience, our 5 dentists will be able to provide you with a full range of services from regular dental checkups and comprehensive care plans, to cosmetic dental treatments such as teeth whitening, teeth straightening and implants. We aim to provide a relaxed atmosphere from the moment that you step through the door, and with our calm and gentle approach, ensure that even the most nervous patient will feel comfortable and at ease. Within our practice we have also created our WOW Club, where our patients can benefit from various facial rejuvenation treatments, all carried out by our experienced facial rejuvenation team. We also believe in giving back to the community. We are actively involved in charity fundraising and have raised money for many good causes such as Gibside School in Whickham,  Grace House Children’s Hospice and the Children’s Heart Foundation at the Freeman Hospital.
