OUR PRIVATE DENTISTS
Our private dentists are carefully selected for both their extensive skills in dentistry and for their attention to detail. Our first priority is your comfort and safety.
WHY CHOOSE US
The highest standards of clinical care and skill are taken as read at VIDA; what we look for in our dentists is so much more. Our dentists have been chosen for their personal qualities as much as their clinical expertise. Each dentist has a caring manner, time to spend with their patients, and the support team and facilities which allow them to do their job to the very best of their abilities.
Each VIDA dentist has at least one area of particular interest to ensure the team covers all areas of dentistry under one roof. The team are here for you 6 days a week so you can fit your dental care around busy lives.
