Welcome to Tiptree Dental Surgery
The practice was founded in 1966, and was joined by Clive Bainbridge in 1974, Kate Ranson joined in 2002 and Alex Champelovier in 2003. The team was completed by Mimi Booth in 2012.
The move to our present address was accomplished in 1982, with a new purpose built extension added in 1999 to cope with increasing patient numbers. In early 2008 a further extension was provided in order to facilitate a dedicated disinfection and sterilisation room to cope with present and future rationale. This also gives full disabled access to our downstairs surgery, along with an equipped toilet facility.
All three surgeries are fully equipped and furnished with the most modern and up-to-date equipment in order to manage with the amount of data needed, the entire practice is computerised and is in daily contact with the NHS Business Service Authority so that any questions as regards treatment proposal are dealt with expeditiously.
We are also fortunate to have a fully digitalised whole mouth X-ray machine to give virtually instant diagnosis of possible problems.
As well as four dentists, we have the services of our two hygienists to complement the practice, Becky and Alison.
The practice is managed by Bev, and our secretarial work is carried out by Kirstie, all our dental nurses - Jan (2) (RDN CDR), Kirstie (RDN CDR) Lyn (RDN CDR), Hayley (RDN CDR), Eve, Hannah (RDN), Ellie (RDN) and Leanne (RDN) and House Keeping Jan(1), make up the team, either in surgery or on reception.
All our staff are fully registered with the appropriate bodies.
Unfortunately we are working at full capacity and are unable to guarantee appointments at the practice. At present this situation is monitored every month and usually spare appointments will be offered, please register your interest to join our waiting list.
At present all out of hours emergencies are dealt with by phoning the practice answerphone for an advice line, however please be aware this may be advice only.
The BDA Good Practice Scheme is a quality assurance programme for UK dental practices. Members of the Scheme demonstrate a visible commitment to providing quality dental care to nationally recognised best practice standards.
There are private alternatives to the other forms of treatment available, some require increased laboratory time using a master technician, or using superior quality materials. Your requirements in any of the test procedures are personal and, due to the complexity of the fees structure, an indication of what can be achieved and the cost involved can only be give after consultation.
Tiptree Dental Surgery is proud of the service we offer and the skill of our staff.
