About the

Looking after the dentistry needs of the people of Cramlington since 1972.

The Practice was started in 1972 by Richard Grant in the original Health Centre at a time when Cramlington was expanding rapidly. Within a short time, a second dentist was taken on and demand continued to grow throughout the 70’s and continued ever since.

In 1987 the Practice became a Vocational Training practice. Vocational Training was then a new concept in Dentistry, reflecting experience in general medical practice, every newly qualified dentist was obliged to undergo a further year of training whilst practising. A series of four Trainees each completed a year, in three cases the Trainee staying on after their Training year to continue working as an Associate dentist within the practice.

Currently, the Practice employs three Associates, Rebecca Carter, Tom Conroy, and Ayesha Shahram Khan. We also employ a full-time Hygienist, Emma, and a part-time Therapist (Vanessa).

Over the years, the Practice has expanded and it soon became obvious that the existing premises were inadequate. For these reasons, we took a decision to move to better premises and to this end, we built our own brand new, luxurious Practice building in the old Village. In this, we offer a vastly enlarged range of services in an attractive, state-of-the-art surroundings.

The new building is located in the car park behind the Plough Inn in the old village of Cramlington and is about three hundred yards North East of the town centre.
