Improve Your Smile at Woodford House Dental Practice

Improve Your Smile at the Woodford House Dental Practice on Woodford High Road opposite Tesco Express has been in business since 1986 and if we haven’t yet welcomed you as a patient we would love to! At the moment we have a special offer of an hour’s Oral Health Consultation for £50 instead of £100. It will be the most thorough dental examination you have ever had including x-rays, oral cancer screening, blood pressure test and a full written report and treatment plan. Our patients have trusted us to look after their oral health for over 30 years. We provide excellent general dentistry ensuring our patients enjoy a lifetime of good dental health. However, if it is advice on cosmetic dentistry you are after or maybe you are finding eating the foods you love a struggle due to failing teeth, then please do give us a call so that we may help you. We offer free consultations for cosmetic dentistry, implants, teeth whitening, adult orthodontics and facial cosmetics. Please visit our website www.improveyoursmile.co.uk or Facebook page – Improve Your Smile at Woodford Dental Practice - for more information. Or simply give us a call on 020 8504 2704 to book in that new patient appointment!
