Marsh Dental Care was established in 2003 to provide good quality private dental care with a personal touch.
In 2021, principal dentist Preetpal took ownership of the business, with the aim of continuing to provide and improve on the high-quality care and treatment that patients expect from Marsh Dental Care.
Our client base is deliberately small, which ensures that we are able to give our time and attention to each individual patient.
We believe in the importance of helping patients to maintain their dental health each and every day. Early detection and prevention of gum and teeth problems means that patients can keep their own teeth for longer, whether or not they are filled.
A laid-back, tranquil atmosphere has been created at Marsh Dental Care.. Our team is currently entirely female, made up of individuals who have a gentle, caring manner. Time has been taken to ensure the whole experience of visiting the practice is as relaxing as possible. The restful colour scheme and soothing scent of the patient lounge create a calm ambience for patients whilst waiting to receive their dental care.1
