Principal Dentist Liz Bolton says, “looking after the individual needs of my patients has always been my number one priority. I set up Calder House Dental Care so that I could provide the best possible preventative, patient-centred dental care.
Here at Calder House we have a team of skilled and dedicated professionals, offering you the best in dentistry.”
“As an established private dental practice we are always looking at ways to continuously improve our service and care to patients. In particular, we believe that a friendly, caring and open approach to our patients is a crucial part of our service. Putting new and nervous patients at ease is a high priority.
“The financial impact of dentistry is also something we take very seriously and we have also recently introduced dental payment plans arranged by Denplan to help patients spread the cost of their dental care.”
