Our Shildon Dental Practice was formed in 1990 by the partnership of Simon Ashby and Steven Atkinson. They both graduated from Newcastle University in 1987 and after a period working in a large Darlington Practice left to start their own. Gareth Fay was welcomed into the group in 2001 and all three have pursued the development of a locally driven preventive practice with an enviable reputation for care.

The practice moved premises in December 2009 to 23/27 Main Street, a site that needed extensive refurbishment but now hosts one of the best facilities for dental care in the region. As well as five dentists and a busy dental hygienist the dental team includes our nurses, oral health educators and coordinators.

The practice is involved with continuing professional development and education and is a Foundation Dentist Teaching site. We are proud to be silver British Dental Association members. Our patients are offered a full range of dental care including premium cosmetic options and NHS treatments. A ground floor surgery is available for those who cannot manage stairs.
