Reasons to choose Apollo Dental for your private dental care in Southend-on-Sea

  • At Apollo we aim to provide you with the highest standard of dental care appropriate to your circumstances.
  • We provide dental care on a private basis, so we are not providing treatment according to a target quota as dictated by a care commissioning body - you receive recommendations for the care that you need and the treatment that is in your best interests.
  • Our team members are friendly, caring, and approachable and will be sensitive to any anxieties you may have.
  • You will be treated in a clean and safe environment.
  • All our Dentists, Hygienists, and Dental Nurses are registered with, and regulated by, the General Dental Council.
