About Us

At Kensington Dental the primary focus is the comfort, care and wellbeing of our clients.

We understand that a visit to the Dentist or Hygienist can cause some anxiety.

We strive to provide the best, most up to date dentistry possible. The clinicians are keen students of their profession, and attend national and international courses, seminars and presentations in their field, ensuring the skills they practice are of higher quality.

We take special care to ensure our clients are relaxed and comfortable and have a good comprehension of their treatment options. We are passionate about oral health and strive to achieve the best individual results possible - aesthetically, structurally and financially.

We realise that a lot of our clients are busy working people who cannot afford to take time off work to attend appointments.  For this reason our surgery is open from 7am most mornings and we have a late night til 7pm on Thursdays.

NB: PSA members receive a 15% discount on treatment upon presentation of their membership card.
