10+ Years Caring for our Community

We've made a few changes please read our updated letter for patients

Newquay Dental Centre is open for business. We will continue to prioritize urgent care and vulnerable patients; we have also started to contact patients who had treatment cancelled during the first lockdown in the order of when they were cancelled.

At Newquay Dental Centre, we always follow the 9 GDC principles:

Treatment Options

We provide an excellent standard of dental care for both adults and children.

Our dental hygiene therapists are trained in all aspects of gum care, restorative treatment, and promotion of oral health. We also offer preventative and cosmetic dentistry. To request services as a patient, please contact us.

For many people, dental implants can last a life time, providing welcome relief from the noticeable signs of ageing that premature tooth loss can hasten. They will blend naturally with your remaining teeth, without damaging them. In fact, dental implants can preserve the adjacent bone and gum tissue that is often worn down with conventional dentures and bridgework. Dental implants can provide our patients with the self-confidence that a complete smile can bring.

Invisalign is the “near invisible” way to straighten your teeth without wearing conventional metal braces. Invisalign uses a series of clear, removable custom-made aligners to move your teeth. Because you remove your aligners before you eat and drink, there are no food restrictions or problems with flossing or brushing.

We are experienced in the latest tooth-whitening techniques and would be pleased to discuss this option with you.

Cosmetic cleaning is gentle and effective. It helps to prevent gum disease and gets rid of unsightly stains.

We are particularly concerned to work with you to help prevent problems in the first place. We will ask you details about your health and lifestyle which will help us to give you the best advice with regard to diet and fluoride and the best oral healthcare techniques for you. 

We can replace missing teeth with plastic or metal-based dentures. Partial dentures can have increased retention with clasps around remaining teeth and we can even make these out of injection formed tooth-coloured resin to make them inconspicuous.

We frequently see patients of all ages who have suffered fractured or loose teeth as a result of a sporting accident. In almost every case the damage could have been prevented or reduced with the use of a custom fitted mouth guard. We can take a special impression so these can be made in a wide range of colours including multi-coloured stripes and special effects. With a custom made mouth guard it is individually shaped for the wearer’s mouth, and a uniform thickness to ensure you can tolerate the mouth guard and play hard!

In addition to metal alloy based crowns we can offer you various types of all-ceramic and composite material crowns which are specially bonded to your tooth. Without an opaque metal core they offer significant cosmetic advantages as they allow light transmission just like a natural tooth, and do not have the dark neck often seen with metal based crowns.

Depending upon circumstances missing teeth can be replaced by bridges supported on ‘wings’ bonded onto the back of adjacent teeth or on ‘crowns’ fitted to the adjacent teeth after preparation.

Please read this letter carefully as it gives details of important changes regarding your future dental care.

For many years we have been fully committed to providing patients with the highest level of NHS patient care and it continues to be a pleasure to treat all of our patients.

Over the last few months, we have become increasingly busy, and it has become apparent that we now need to make some changes to the way we practise, given the demands on our time. Our main priority is to continuously strive to improve the dental care we can offer to our patients. We want to be able to spend more time with you and offer you a wider choice of treatments in a more relaxed environment, and also reduce the appointment waiting times.

We have seen major changes in dentistry and the wider world in recent years. Real terms funding cuts plus recruitment and retention challenges have put a strain on us providing routine NHS care for patients. All of this has led us to reflect on what we can offer as a dental practice and how we can make best use of the resources we have available.

For more information on NHS dentistry, including funding and charges please click here.

The quality of care we offer our patients is of utmost importance to us, so we have been working hard behind the scenes making important decisions and changes in the strive to improve.

What is changing?

Therefore, after much deliberation, as of 1st October 2023, we will only be seeing patients on an independent basis. In order to assist with this change, we would like to introduce our membership package for the practice.

As a parent/guardian registered on one of our dental membership plans, we will continue to see your children up to the age of 5 years old free of charge for their routine dental health examinations.

Our patient membership plan helps you keep your teeth and gums healthy by allowing you to budget monthly for your dental care so that you can attend on a basis that’s right for you. Through regular examinations and hygiene appointments we can spot issues early, potentially saving you from more invasive treatment in the future, and it is cheaper than paying as you go. Full details of our membership plans and your options are available here.


For those of you who do not wish to join the plan, we will still be able to offer you a full range of treatments on a private pay-as-you go basis, however please note, you will not benefit from the discounts off treatments or other member benefits.

If you want to stay with us on this basis, please speak to a member of our team to reserve your place on our lists, and book or confirm your next appointment if you do not have one already.

What happens next?

If you have an NHS appointment booked with Newquay Dental Centre prior to 1st October 2023, please attend this as normal. We will be seeing you for this and any subsequent treatment you may require under the current NHS arrangements. At this appointment we will be able to discuss what we feel would be the best option for you to maintain your dental health, then you will need to decide if you want to continue with us as your dentist on an independent basis or should you wish to access another NHS dental practice, you can visit the NHS website https://www.nhs.uk to find a local dental practice that is currently accepting patients or telephone the NHS Waiting list on 0333 006 3300.

If you need help, please just ask! If you require any more information about becoming a member of our scheme, any of the changes outlined in this letter or would like to discuss the options available to you before your next appointment, our reception team will be more than happy to discuss this with you in person, or by phone on 01637 879207.

Finally, we would like to let all our patients know that we have thoroughly enjoyed looking after you and those of you that cannot remain with us, for whatever reason, will be sadly missed.

Kindest regards,

Stuart Williams & Maria Gonzalo
