About Measham Dental

Quality dentistry is what’s important to the dentists at Measham Dental. That’s why we work to the highest possible standard when providing general dental care. Our focus is always on you, our patient.

Personal Dentistry

Experienced and attentive, our dental team works tirelessly to care for your oral health. Sandra, our principal dentist, opened our purpose-built practice in 2014. Her vision was to offer private treatment in a friendly, affordable, and professional way. Since then, we have grown enormously.


Patient recommendations are what have contributed most to our growth. That’s because we take pride in reassuring our patients in a comforting manner. Every treatment we offer is fully explained for the benefit of our patients, helping you to make informed decisions about your treatments.

Your Visit

Quality care is a priority at Measham Dental. That’s why we give our clients plenty of time, and offer a relaxed, enjoyable service without rushing. Flexible appointment times, including early and late visits, are available, as well as same-day emergency care.


Initial consultations last around 30 minutes. While getting to know you, we’ll perform a thorough examination of your teeth, mouth, and gums. We’ll also check the tissue around your mouth, including lymph nodes and the temporomandibular joint (TMJ). When necessary, we will take x-rays.


A confidential medical history form must be completed when you arrive. It might be useful for you to bring a list of your medication with you, as well as the name and address of your GP. We will discuss your medical history alongside what you are looking for from our dentists.


We’ll answer any dental health questions you may have. At the end of the examination, we’ll fully explain your detailed treatment plan. This will include a breakdown of the cost.

Advanced Dental Technology

The latest intraoral camera technology is used at Measham Dental. These cameras allow you to see what is happening inside your mouth as. That means you’ll be able to see what we are describing, as we describe it.

Children Welcome

Children are welcome at Measham Dental. In fact, we encourage regular visits to the dentist from an early age. This will give us and your child the opportunity to get to know one another, helping them to feel at ease.


Frequent visits will allow us to monitor your child’s dental development and encourage good hygiene at home. The positive attitude we instil will set your child up for life-long dental comfort. The dental plans we offer are suitable for patients of all ages. The child care plan we provide is very affordable.


Children should brush their teeth twice a day for 2 minutes. Sugary snacks and acidic drinks should also be avoided. At Measham Dental, we’ll encourage your child with these messages to make sure their oral health is maintained.
