As  part of the ongoing Quality Management of Education and Training, we feel proud to be chosen as a FD training practice for 2015-2016.

Our practice is situated in a large village on the outskirts of Doncaster. Edlington is easily reached from the M18 and A1 motorways; it is within easy commuting distance of both Sheffield and Leeds – less than 30 minutes by car, there are also regular bus services from the centre of Doncaster.

Edlington has numerous local amenities including several supermarkets, banks and cash machines, cafes and shops. Doncaster has many attractions including shopping centres, leisure centres, a racecourse, numerous bars and restaurants, golf courses and cinemas. Leeds and Sheffield offer great night life and Meadowhall shopping centre is close by.

Our Dental practice is situated in a purpose built multidisciplinary health centre built in 2008, which also includes Doctors, Social workers, District Nurses, a library and Pharmacy.

The practice is very modern and has been designed to fulfil compliance with current legislation. We have three surgeries all arranged around a central decontamination room.

All surgeries have climate control, modern Kavo chairs, handpieces, internet access computerised clinical records using the Kodak R4 system and intraoral x-ray facilities. We also have a panoramic radiograph machine and intraoral camera.

The practice is wheelchair friendly and we have a loop system fitted on reception.

We have a free staff car park and canteen area with fridge, water cooler, microwaves and seating areas, there is also an outdoor seating area which can be use in the summer.

We currently have three Dental Surgeons working at our practice and a part time hygienist. There are four registered Dental nurses, a full time receptionist and practice manager.

Two of our nurses have radiography qualifications and we actively encourage our staff in their personal development.

Being a General Dental Practice with a strong emphasis on NHS treatment we offer a wide range of NHS treatments and some cosmetic treatments on a private basis. We use a wide variety of different materials depending on personal preference.

We have a strong emphasis on prevention and are always looking for ways to improve this.

We have a large well established patient base, with many patients having visited us for a number of years; we also take on new patients when we have the capacity to do so, and also accept patients from Community Dental Services.

We are proud to be part of the Edlington Hilltop Centre Community Health Initiative and to work in partnership with the Patient Participation Group.
