Dedicated to you

Our core values are care, trust and respect.


We treat our patients as we ourselves would like to be treated and our team is dedicated to doing the very best for our patients.

Our philosophy

Our practice philosophy is centred on wellbeing and providing a calm, re-assuring service to all of our patients. We are passionate about community and ensure that everybody has a chance to contribute to our practice vision.

Our team are here to do their very best for you. We are made up of a diverse team of nurses, hygienists, dentists and managerial staff to support the well running of the practice. All of our staff bring a range of varied experience to Chapel Street, including military backgrounds, advanced post graduated study, corporate care and parenting child care skills.

Our staff turnover is low because we prioritise the care of our staff and their happiness and wellbeing. This is reflected in the care you will receive here from our happy team.
