Statement of Purpose

    Distinctly Dental (formerly Village Dental Care) provides private general dental care for all the family. We welcome all members of the community and are happy to accept new patients for routine and emergency dental treatments. In addition, we are a referral practice for dental implants and Invisalign orthodontic appliances.

    Operating since 1994, we have a state of the art dental surgery and a separate comfortable waiting area. Our patients will always be given that personal touch by Dr Karen Andrews and her team.

    Our practice focuses on providing a welcoming environment where the safety and comfort for both patients and staff alike is considered a priority. We are constantly looking to improve the premises and service we provide through patient feedback/surveys to facilitate continued improvement.

    The team at Distinctly Dental pride ourselves on giving patients control over the kinds of treatments they choose, from emergency dental care, routine dentistry, cosmetic solutions, through to full comprehensive dental care and advice. Traditionally, most dentistry is focused on fixing one tooth at a time, however we have learnt that to achieve the best long-term results, a more comprehensive approach is required.

    Our practice has a caring ethos and we excel at helping those who are anxious when visiting the dentist, hence the line ‘we cater for cowards’ (quoted from a satisfied patient who said that we had administered the most painless injections).

    The practice owner, Dr Karen Andrews ensures that she leads by example and is a mentor to the team. Our team are all qualified in their respective fields and are registered with the General Dental Council. We provide Continuing Professional Development for all staff to ensure that we keep abreast of changes and developments in the dental field.

    Our Aim:

    We are committed to providing our patients with exceptional care in the same warm, caring, and professional manner we would extend to members of our own family. Embracing their individuality, Respecting their choices, Delivering beyond their expectations.
