Whatever your negative dental experiences, with our help you can leave your fears where they belong: in the past. With refined care and expertise we’ve been helping patients throughout Sturminster Newton manage their fear of the dentist for many years - we can do it for you too.
It’s important that you look after your oral health. Your lifestyle, psychological well-being and dental health depend on it. If you continue to avoid the dentist, this can lead to severe, perhaps irreversible, damage.
So, take the first step. Work with us. Tell us everything. In detail. We understand the panic. The sweaty palms. The rumbling tum. The unsteady legs. The tears. We also know how to ease these symptoms. As your confidence grows, they will disappear for good.

My wife and I made our first visit as new patients. First impressions were very favourable on both the dental and admin side
Absolutely amazing dentist. Every single member of staff is wonderful, sweet and kind. Highly recommend. 10/10!
I have been going to Sturminster Dental Care for years , it’s amazing. Always get a warm welcome and Ian & Helen are Brilliant looking after my teeth . Wouldn’t go anywhere else and recommend them highly
Absolutely first class dental care from an extremely courteous and professional team. A trip to the dentist isn’t exactly everyone’s ideal place to visit, but all the staff here will make you feel totally at ease, and for me, have completely taken the fear factor away from the occasion. I’ve visited a few dental surgeries over the years, and this is the best by quite some distance. Top class service from a top class team. Thank you!
I have not relaxed in a dental chair for years . I was always apprehensive and anxious. Brian has a great bed side manner and for the first time in years I relaxed . It was almost pleasant ! Thank you for ‘putting me back together again’ Tim

Very good care from Olga
I don't think I have ever had such a comfortable and friendly dental experience. Ian took the time to explain all my options and treatments and made me feel fairly optimistic about the outcome. The reception staff were very welcoming and helpful
It was great to be fitted in so quickly, as I had indicated that I was in pain, and the receptionist worked hard to find a slot for me. Overall, an efficient service, with friendly, accommodating staff. The dentist worked quickly to identify the problem and begin treatment.
Always time to talk 'teeth' and never feeling rushed
Excellent service - friendly team
