Mission and Vision

Our Practice Charter

Larkfield Dental Practice is a small family friendly practice established by Theo van Diepen in October 1999.

At Larkfield Dental Practice, our aim is to deliver a high level of care by attending to your individual needs. We recognise that every person is an individual and has different dental concerns and requirements.

At your initial consultation your dentist will sit down and discuss your dental concerns. Our goal is to find out about your concerns and problems from the start and help improve your overall oral health in a caring and professional manner.

Your care and wellbeing is of the highest priority to us. Our team consists of two dentists, a periodontist/implant specialist, hygienist, three dental nurses, Practice manager and receptionist. We are a very close team and proud of our ability to communicate with ease, this assists in our endeavour to offer a friendly, relaxed and professional experience for all our patients.

A large percentage of our new business is via existing patient recommendations, giving us belief in our existing approach to our patient care.

We recognise that our patients deserve the best dental healthcare available, that’s why we are proud to be a member of the Denplan Accreditation Excel Programme. The programme is approved by the Patients Association and is an assurance of the quality service that you can expect.

What We Do

Our focus at Larkfield Dental Practice is on preventive dentistry. Preventive dentistry helps you to keep your teeth and means that over time you need to have less dental treatment. The two main causes of tooth loss are decay and gum disease. The better you prevent or deal with these two problems, the more chance you will have of keeping your teeth for life. By working together, we can help to reduce the need for treatment and ensure that your smile is as healthy as possible for as long as possible.
