Welcome to 121 Dental Centre

121 Dental Centre is a family practice which has been in its current location since 1935. We currently have 5 full time Dentists and a Hygienist. Although this list is not exhaustive we offer:

  • All routine restorations
  • Advanced restorations including various crowns, bridges and veneers
  • Periodontal treatment (treatment of gum problems)
  • Denture provision
  • A wide range of cosmetic dentistry including tooth whitening
  • Restoration of dental implants with crowns, bridges or dentures
  • Preventative dentistry including fissure sealants and mouthguards

We know that prevention is key. By giving you and your family regular dental advice we can limit interventions and help you take care of your teeth and gums. Although we carry out most dental treatments we also work closely with colleagues who provide Orthodontics, Dental Implants and other specialist treatments.

New Patients

Please Note: At this time we are not taking any new NHS patients.

We are a mixed NHS and Private practice treating both adults and children. With changing treatment options and advancing technology, not all treatment options are available on the NHS.

All options will be discussed and estimated costs given. Please contact reception to register. We will take your details and ask you to fill in a confidential medical questionnaire. If you feel anxious about visiting the dentist please let us know and we will do all that we can to assist you. In all cases where there are charges, we ask that fees are settled on the day of treatment. If you are entitledto a full or partial exemption from charges on the NHS please bring evidence to support this.


Any treatment offered (either NHS or Private) will be estimated, discussed and agreed with you in advance. We ask that this is paid by your last appointment. We accept Debit and credit cards, cheques and cash.
Some of our Dentists offer Denplan for Private patients, helping to spread the cost of private treatment. If this is something you would like to enquire about we have leaflets in the waiting areas or ask your dentist.
NHS charges for common procedures are as follows (guidelines only);

XRAYS - FROM £3.76
