Penny Wiles – Best Dental Clinic in Norwich was established in 1979 and our continuing aim is to provide the personal friendly atmosphere of a small family practice with the highest possible standard of dental care for our patients tailored to their individual needs. We aim to promote current preventative oral health messages and treatment, treating our patients with respect for any limitations they may have. Our objectives are to achieve this in a safe environment through teamwork, training, knowledge of current thinking, materials and techniques.
We want to help you prevent problems and keep your teeth healthy and attractive for life.
We do all we can to provide a kind, hygienic, clean, safe, pleasant, caring, sympathetic, understanding environment for your dental care.
If you have a disability that may hinder dental care or have particular access requirements please let us know.
The practice is well equipped. It has air conditioning, digital radiography, dedicated disinfection/sterilisation facilities and a small laboratory. We are computerised to manage radiographic and photographic images only. We take protection of people’s data seriously and, in line with GDPR and the Data Protection Act 2018, have procedures in place and regular staff training and to ensure confidentiality at all times. Please read our Privacy notice here.
We believe prevention of cross-infection is important and have clear practice policies and staff training to ensure everyone’s safety. The practice is designed around the concept of six handed dentistry and Penny works with two nurses, an operating/chairside nurse in close support and a further nurse who passes instruments and materials into the procedure but stays ‘clean’. This allows time for thorough surgery cleaning between patients appointments.
Bottom line, we work in the real world and try hard to do a good job.
