High Ash Dental Surgery is a well-established dental practice which has been serving the local community for over 40 years. The practice owners Mr Munaf Qayyum and Dr Neema Naik bought the practice in 2002. Over this time, dentistry has evolved with new techniques and patient expectations have dramatically changed. We will take our time and explain all the available treatment options with the risks and benefits enabling you to make an informed decision before any treatment commences.
All our dentists, hygienists and qualified dental nurses are registered with the GDC. They fully participate in continuing professional development extending their knowledge and skills.
We aim to provide high quality dentistry in a gentle, friendly and caring environment.
