Dedicated to our existing patients

We are no longer taking new patients. In order to be able to care for and treat our existing patients in a timely manner, we have made the decision not to further expand our patient base. 

However, an exception is made for immediate family (children under 18/partner) of existing patients. 

One of our dentists, Dr David Finnegan, does currently have space in his book at our sister practice Airport Dental

My first impression was the friendly atmosphere, I was so at ease from the first appointment, I felt like I was the only one! Going to the dentist was always a big deal to me and getting a brace was a huge life changing decision. I enjoyed my visits and the friendly staff made me feel so welcome and shared in my excitement of my teeth moving into place from the braces.

Thrilled to bits with my teeth and so grateful to all the team at Elmwood to make this dream come true for me.

So glad my friend Patsy introduced me to Elwood Dental – Patsy is also working there and the professionalism was second to none. I can’t stop smiling, thank you team Elmwood.
