About the

Team at Ice Dental & Implant Centre

Wonderfully different

Ice Dental was set up in Blyth, Worksop in 2006 with one clear concept - to offer superior levels of service normally reserved for 5 star hotels in surroundings more often found in a luxury spa.

Our aim is to provide you with the very best dental care and treatment, getting to understand your particular needs and making you feel truly cared for.

We're conscious that many people don't like attending the dentist, so we always make a concerted effort to ensure you feel as relaxed as possible during your visit. Since the practice opened we've managed to turn many nervous patients into happy, regular visitors!

We are extremely proud of our team - everyone is strongly committed to the ice dental concept, and this shines through in everything we do.
