Dr Emma Kateb
Our new dentist, Emma Kateb is working on Fridays and will see patients on a private or Denplan basis. Emma grew up in South Devon and trained to be a dentist in Plymouth winning several awards whilst training.

BDA Good Practice Scheme
We have been awarded the British Dental Association (BDA) Good Practice Scheme for the second time.  This means that we have been assessed by the association and we have shown we meet the necessary standards of excellence  to qualify for the scheme.

We work very hard at the practice to ensure that the practice is well run, that we comply with all the necessary regulations and that we provide  excellent service and care to our valued patients. We will continue to work in accordance with the scheme in the future. We hope that you appreciate the benefits of belonging to a practice that values the merits of working to a high standard recognised by our national association.
