Alternatively, please contact the practice on 01258 473397, where a member of the reception team will be happy to reschedule your appointments.

We want to reassure you that the whole team at Sturminster Dental Care are committed to your safety; we have always maintained the highest standards of infection control, and we have implemented all of the mandatory additional infection control requirements to protect you during your visit.
