The dental practice has been a thriving business in its current location since 1992. It was formerly owned and managed by Bobby and Patricia Craig. Bobby retired in October 2006 and the practice was bought by Ghyll McCallum. Ghyll has worked hard to modernise the practice since then to accommodate the increase in patient numbers, incorporating a variety of improved and upgraded facilities for both patients and staff.

Recent refurbishments include:

  • a larger waiting room and reception area
  • a dedicated decontamination unit for brand new sterilisation processing of instruments and equipment
  • a fifth surgery
  • a larger staff room
  • a disabled access toilet

Dentist, Hygienist and Staff numbers have also increased. There are currently five dentists and two hygienists working in the practice with an experienced support staff of 8 dental nurses and receptionists.
Levengrove Dental Care is committed to providing high quality dental treatment to all of its patients. We happily accept new NHS patients and carry out private treatment on request. All the dentists are experienced in many aspects of dental treatment and we have an excellent support network of other dental specialists who offer orthodontic, implant and sedation treatment.
