We believe that good oral health is very important and although you may not realise it, the condition of your gums can contribute to your overall general health. Research over recent years points towards an association between severe gum disease and serious health conditions, such as heart disease and diabetes.

Our dental hygienists, Judy and Taranvir can help equip you with the tools and knowledge to help you maintain a healthier mouth which can then lead you to a healthier heart and a healthier lifestyle.

Judy Eden RDH (London) 1974 GDC No. 1109

We aim to make your trip to the practice as pleasant, relaxed and comfortable as possible, and do our best to ensure that you are well supported during your course of treatment.



Bidford Dental Practice also works closely with a wider team of specialists using their skills and expertise to enhance and compliment the treatment we carry out here.

Implants may be the answer for replacing missing teeth.  We have referred many satisfied patients to Neil Wilson at The Central England Referral Centre

Root Canal Therapy is a very successful treatment to save a tooth and we may, in some cases, refer to an Endodontist, Andy McRobert at Albert Road Dental Practice who can offer specialist treatment.

Orthodontic Treatment is often needed for some of our younger patients but also some older patients would like teeth straightened or re-aligned.  We send many patients to George Simpson at Stratford Orthodontics and work together with him to improve appearance and functionality.
