Are you looking for a dentist in Orpington?

As a well-established dentist in Orpington with over five decades of service to the local community, we have established ourselves as a dental practice that cares for our patients and provides a consistent service that they can rely on. At Cray Dental Care, we regard every patient of ours as a member of our extended family, and we treat all with the same respect and care that we would our immediate family. Caring for your teeth is more than just pulling and filling; today's dentistry is far more about building a relationship and understanding that we can make the physical and mental experience of sitting in the dental chair less stressful. Our staff, from front-of-house to dentist, are all here to help you understand the importance of taking good, regular care of your teeth.

Preventive dentistry


Being a responsible dentist in Orpington, we are great believers in preventive dentistry because we know that if you take good care of your teeth, they should serve you well for a lifetime. We now experience regular six-monthly checkup patients who visited us as children and have now grown up into adults. They have maintained a proper dental regime as we showed them when they were younger and are now reaping the rewards of practising that regular maintenance.


We encourage you to bring your child to us from as young as one year old so that they can experience the environment of our dental practice. We want them to become familiar with the sights, sounds and smells of our practice. Over time and as they start to be examined themselves, they will find that visiting the dental practice is just a normal event and will hold no trepidation for them. Introducing them to our dental practice will probably be the best gift you can give them as the result will be a healthy mouth, teeth and gums. This will mean fewer dental problems requiring extractions or fillings.


Technology is moving so fast


It is necessary as a dentist in Orpington to be aware of technological advances not only in dentistry but in the wider context. Mobile phone technology has made people more aware of their aesthetic appearance. Fortunately, dental science and technology have kept pace with these advances, and we regularly attend training and seminars on new equipment and techniques that allow us to give you the treatment you expect from a modern dentist.


Treatment for all conditions


We are proud to offer you a full range of dental treatments so that you do not have to suffer from misaligned or missing teeth. The techniques in use today are also more patient-friendly, and an enormous emphasis is placed on sympathetic patient treatment. The dental industry is striving to make dental procedures as comfortable as possible for patients. Dental braces are now far more comfortable and effective, and the introduction of aligners has made the treatment of crooked or gapped teeth less conspicuous. Replacing lost teeth can now be done by a more permanent procedure; this is based on the way that your natural tooth is rooted to your jawbone.


Smiles: the best reward


To us, being able to provide a patient with relief from stress, pain and dental discomfort is our greatest gift. We take pride and pleasure in seeing patients leave with a radiant and confident smile.
