Meet the team

Malt House Specialist Dental Centre is proud of its reputation for providing high-quality patient care. Every member of our team plays an important role in achieving and continuing this reputation.

As our name suggests, we boast onsite GDC registered specialists in two specific areas; Endodontics (Root Canal) & Periodontics (gum disease). Alongside these specialists, we have clinicians who are dedicated to helping our patients get the smile they desire, as we offer cosmetic treatments; full mouth rehabilitation, teeth straightening and whitening.

Our team of hygienists & therapists support our clinicians with their skill set surrounding scale & polish, periodontal treatment & maintenance & stain removal with modern technology. We also have an excellent front of house and nursing team to ensure our patients receive all the care and attention they need from the minute they make an appointment; right through to completion of treatment and aftercare advice. The day to day running of the practice is overseen by the Practice Manager, who herself comes from a clinical background. She is on hand to guide the team and support the clinicians as they all work together to provide our patients with a high-quality service.
