New NHS dental practice to open in Rhiwbina this November

September 01, 2016 at 3:22 PM

A new NHS dental practice will open on Maes-y-Coed Road in Rhiwbina in November serving Birchgrove, Llanishen and Rhiwbina.

The new practice will offer NHS dental services in place of the now private Rhiwbina Dental Surgery. It will open following a tendering process conducted by Cardiff and Vale University Health Board to replace the dental contract which was previously covered by Rhiwbina Dental Surgery.

Priority access will be given to patients who accessed treatment with Rhiwbina Dental Surgery who will receive letters in early September to notify them of how to sign up to the practice.  Following this the practice will then be able to accept new patients.

The new purpose-built practice to be called Gwena Dental Care will be owned and run by Drs Osian and Anna Davies who both trained at the School of Dentistry in Cardiff.

The new facility will have lift access to the first floor and parking available on site. Specialised treatment chairs will be available to facilitate dental treatment for intermediate bariatric patients.

Dr Osian Davies said; “We have wanted to be able to set up our own dental practice for some time, to put into practice everything we have learnt over the years of training and working in other practices in the city.  We want patients to feel at ease and receive the highest standards of dental care possible along with all of the support they need to live a healthy lifestyle.”

Cardiff and Vale University Health Board's primary care support manager, David Oliver, said; “The commitment to high-quality, caring dentistry, alongside a strong understanding of the need for preventative advice and information, means patients who choose to be part of the practice will receive the highest standards of care.”
