Lastest Updates and COVID-19 Guidance 

The practice is open for a full level of service, but we are working through a large backlog. We are currently able to see all patients with a dental problem or pain, and we can now book routine examinations.

Due to the huge backlog, the changes to our NHS contract and the recall guidelines, if you are an NHS patient it is unlikely you will receive more than 1 NHS examination and course of treatment per year - unless you are high risk of disease progression.

A scale & polish is no longer an NHS treatment item. It can be provided on the NHS but only if you require it for health reasons, such as removal of deep tartar that increases risk of diseases of the gums. Superficial scaling and stain removal can be provided on a private basis.

We are screening patients before entrance into the surgery. If you answer 'Yes' to any of the screening questions (such as testing positive for Covid-19, or waiting for a test result, or been a close contact) then your appointment will need to be resceduled unless you are suffering with a dental emergency, i.e. uncontrollable bleeding, spreading facial swelling or severe dental trauma.

Most other restrictions have now been lifted, but in Wales you are still advised to wear a face covering in health care settings.

If you require out-of-hours emergency dental treatment, please call CAV 24/7 on 03001020247


We are very happy to inform you that the practice has recently completed the BDA Good Practice "Return to face-to-face assessment" course.

This has helped us comply with the new requirements that are needed to ensure everything is in place for the practice to be safe for patients and staff during the Covid pandemic.


Our Story

The practice was established by Tim's parents, Rob & Sheila Phillips, who have since retired from dentistry. In 2008 Tim came to Fairwater Green to take over the running of the practice and over the years has developed it into the four surgeries.

Extensive refurbishments were carried out to establish two additional new dental surgeries with the latest equipment and disabled access.

Our practice is a member of the British Dental Association’s Good Practice Scheme - the leading quality assurance framework for UK dental practices. 


This means that our practice is committed to keeping up to date with and providing quality dental care to nationally agreed standards of good practice in order to provide the best care for you – our patients.

As part of the Good Practice Scheme all members of our dental team have made this commitment:


  • We involve our patients in all aspects of their care and ensure that their needs and preferences are considered and that they can take informed decisions

  • We ensure a safe environment by undertaking risk assessments and managing potential hazards within the practice. We follow current guidelines for preventing cross-infection

  • We recruit staff that are competent to undertake the duties associated with their role and provide training where required. We encourage on-going professional development for all members of our team

  • We monitor the quality of the service we provide and seek the views of our patients to identify opportunities for improvement.


We provide a high standard of dental treatment for you & your family.
We believe in honest and ethical treatments so you can trust us to look after your teeth.
We use composite (white) fillings as material of choice for all patients.
