Dee Shapland Dental Surgery - Smyleee

Dee Shapland Dental Surgery – Best Dental Clinic in Exeter is a 3rd generation private, Denplan Excel accredited family dental practice established over 70 years ago and conveniently located between the city centre and Topsham.

As a team we genuinely care for you and take the time to get to know you as an individual in order to treat your needs. Every appointment is taken at your pace with a sympathetic, kind and gentle approach from highly experienced clinicians. Our ethos is to provide holistic care with an emphasis on prevention of dental disease, helping you to keep your teeth and gums healthy.
The Dee Shapland Dental Surgery was established in 1942 by Arden Dee Shapland who was a well respected dental surgeon and one of the first Dentists in Exeter to take referrals for orthodontic treatment. In 1959 Arden was joined by Michael Dee Shapland – his son, who was highly regarded by contemporaries for not only his high standards of dentistry but his commitment to the dental profession. Both Arden and Michael were strong believers in providing ‘family dentistry’ with a caring ethos. In 1983, the third generation of Dee Shapland Dentists – Nick, joined the practice and continued this belief that patients should be treated as individuals with different needs.
The practice was relocated in Topsham Road in the 1950’s and the new extension was built in 1995 with the practice continuing to modernise with the completion of a decontamination room in 2011. Disabled facilities were included in the refurbishment to ensure patients with disabilities are fully supported in receiving dental care at our practice. We have a wheelchair friendly reception desk, toilet and surgery and we also provide a loop induction system for those with hearing devices.

For your comfort, our waiting area has raised seats for those patients with mobility needs as well as a comfortable sofa to help you to relax. We have a daily newspaper and a range of ‘up to date’ magazines. Should you forget your reading glasses we have a selection at reception and we provide refreshments and cooled water. If it starts to rain as you leave us, we can even let you have an umbrella.

We are a highly professional team with staff chosen for their caring and friendly nature and dedication to providing the highest levels of customer care
