The Practice

Our aim is to provide you and your family with a first class, complete oral health service. The practice has grown and improved a lot since 2011, we have recently expanded the practice to five surgeries. We’re a dedicated team of highly professionals providing general and cosmetic dentistry from an experienced and caring team. The latest cosmetic dental treatments can make a real difference to your appearance and help with a renewed sense of self-confidence. Good oral hygiene is crucial which is why we have three dedicated hygienists.

This website will give general information about some of the services we have available, but in order to have a tailor made treatment plan a consultation should be arranged. This will be purely for diagnosis and reporting and there is no obligation to have treatment that has been recommended carried out.

We provide the best in patient care with a fully computerised system and modern dental equipment. Our diagnosis is aided by state of the art digital X-ray unit that allows for magnification and manipulation of X-rays that is not possible with conventional X-rays whilst only using a fraction of the X-ray dose.

At Brenchley Dental we have the flexibility to vary our opening times by arrangement, if the hours detailed on the left are not convenient for you. We also offer late hours, to provide the maximum choice of appointments.

As Brenchley is in a central location to many villages, we have found it is perfect for patients to access from many surrounding areas. As our building is a converted bungalow, we are also able to offer wheelchair access, widened doorways, and disabled toilet facilities for patient comfort. We are also fortunate to benefit from picturesque views and an idyllic country back drop. It has the benefit of a large free car park, giving ease of access to the practice and you can enjoy a wide variety of up to date magazines.
