About Us

Your local Teddington Dentists

Welcome to Church Road Dental Care Centre. We are a long established, friendly practice that has served generations of families for over 70 years in Teddington and the surrounding community.

Good oral health for you & your family

​At Church Road Dental Care Centre we offer first class care and are proud to be your local dentists in Teddington. We aim to achieve good oral health for you and your family through preventative dentistry and long term dental maintenance. 


Over the last decade we have increased the scope of the treatments we can offer to our patients. This includes surgical treatments, Dental implants, Periodontal treatments, orthodontics and full mouth rehabilitation. And now we are providing high quality Facial Aesthetics in Teddington. 


​We are a highly professional, experienced team, with up to date knowledge and technology based in the heart of Teddington. 


For many years we have restoring teeth with same day Cerec porcelain restorations. Now we can also offer Trios 3-shape digital intra-oral scanning to avoid the use of wet impressions for many other treatments. ​

We are happy to see all adult patients on a private basis, and child patients can be seen by our team on the NHS. Learn more about our children's NHS dental service.

We really look forward to meeting you and your family at our surgery.
