To all our wonderful patients: Just to let you know that we are still open during this latest 'lock down'.
We have had the opportunity since last summer to perfect even more stringent cross-infection control measures.
We ask you to arrive on time for your appointments so that only one patient is in the practice at any one time.
We completely change the air in the surgery between patients (so bring a jumper!)
It is very important not to let your dental health go unchecked and allow potential problems to worsen.
Regular dental check-ups include assessment of teeth for decay, gums for periodontal disease and the rest of the mouth to check for signs of oral cancer.
We only accept appointments by phone, and although normally welcome, currently we can't allow casual visits.
We look forward to welcoming you back to the practice.
Apologies for inconvenience

David Burton has been a client of Precision Dental Studio for many years.
David produces dental care of the highest standard.
Working in partnership with Precision Dental Studio we can produce crowns, bridges, and implant cases with precise fit that have a truly natural look.
I would not hesitate to recommend David to anyone who wants the best dental treatment.
All my life a visit to the dentist has been a major source of panic, fear and dread.
A few years ago a friend recommended Dr. David Burton at the Crescent Dental Practice who changed everything.
Now, nearly 80, my fear has gone; I sleep the night before my appointment and I walk into the surgery quite happily with a smile on my face.
Dr. Burton does excellent work, is kind, considerate and causes no pain at all.
The staff are equally pleasant and friendly and the place is run most efficiently. I cannot speak too highly of the Practice and unhesitatingly recommend it to anyone.
I feel honoured to be a patient there and (almost) enjoy my visits!
My family and I have been patients of the Crescent dental practice for many years and in that time have come to expect the highest standard of care – they are efficient and well organised as well as caring and kind.
I can trust David to be honest about work which is required and to give me alternatives, if there are any.
He is genuinely interested in the well being of patients and has a really good rapport with us, which makes visits to the dentist a lot more relaxing and pleasant.
The support staff are just as good and we get a warm welcome at appointments, along with flexibility in fixing up appointments and understanding if we arrive a little late!
It’s a deservedly successful practice and I’m very glad we have it so nearby.
I was in need of a considerable amount of dental treatment when I first consulted Dr Burton, and was feeling quite despondent about the state of my teeth.
Dr Burton soon reassured me and explained my options thoroughly before providing me with a written treatment plan.
The treatment, which included an extraction, an implant, root canal treatment, and the replacement of several crowns as well as some fillings, was carried out over the next eighteen months or so and I can truly say that it was without pain.
I now have a healthy mouth once more and feel that my teeth look better than they have in decades.
I am immensely grateful to Dr Burton and all the staff at Crescent Dental Practice, all of whom were so kind, friendly and professional throughout – I wouldn’t think of going anywhere else for my dental treatment.
Very prompt, very quick and no pain at all. Completely pain free!
Very punctual. One of the better dentist appointments I’ve had. Many thanks.
Very good. I hate injections in the mouth but this didn’t hurt at all. Again, loath dental treatment but this was stress and pain free. Thanks.
Always very punctual and excellent care and attention to ensure pain free.
Quick and easiest filling I have had. David is a brilliant dentist!
Pain free extraction.
Very professional practice and very friendly staff. Always feel looked after.
A very relaxed and friendly atmosphere. Pain free and everything explained.
I came in after a nasty fall with a badly chipped tooth and Mr Burton mended it beautifully. I am absolutely delighted, very careful, caring work and I feel so much better. Thank you.
I was in early. I was really impressed with the technique, no injections or a numb mouth.
I was very nervous about having my root treatment, but was made to feel better by the excellent staff, and able to bring in my own DVD to watch whilst having the treatment done which made me forget about it. Thank you Crescent Dental Practice.
I would definitely recommend Crescent Dental Practice to all my friends. Charming and delightful practice.
Always helpful and friendly.
Prompt professional service.
Everything very good
Fantastic practice, David is very thorough, great attention to detail.

A few months ago, after not visiting Crescent for much longer than I should have, David Burton proposed a course of treatment. Thoroughly discussed at each stage and now completed, the court of treatment has left my teeth and mouth transformed. David's judgement and skills are first class and I would highly recommend his practice.
I was seen today by David Burton and his assistant and I just wanted to say thank you so much for seeing me quickly.
In addition, I am delighted with the work done and furthermore; in particular the trimming my front crown, which is now perfect!
I will definitely use your practice again and would have no hesitation in recommending you to my family and friends.
My wife and I have been patients of David since 1996 throughout which time we have always been warmly welcomed by him and his team to a relaxed friendly atmosphere in an ultramodern equipped surgery, and benefitted from the highest possible professional treatment.
Excessive wear on front of my lower front teeth allowed me to occasionally bite on my lower gums. After discussion as to the best way forward David took several moulds and set up a jig to precisely measure the rebuilding of my six lower teeth and adjustments necessary to my dentures.
The procedure was successfully completed yesterday taking three hours without pain and no ill effects thereafter.
I have no hesitation in recommending David, a highly qualified dental surgeon, and his charming hygienist Francesca, who have always provided the most friendly and efficient treatment that is second to none.
