Elm House Ethos

checking tooth related problems

The Elm House ethos

At Elm House, we firmly believe that prevention is better than cure and our aim is to minimise or even prevent treatments by educating patients on the best ways to achieve optimum oral health and by regular check-ups. We are a private practice and will be happy to treat patients and children on the NHS.

Our philosophy of prevention

Elm House offers our patients a wide range of dental treatments based on our philosophy of prevention. We are aware that some patients are more comfortable about visiting their dentist than others and we will happily discuss any anxiety you may have and explain the treatment in plain English and with patience. In particular, we aim to make the practice environment as friendly and welcoming as possible for children in order to give them the confidence to attend regularly.
