As you walk into our clean and pristine Dental Practice you’ll be greeted by our reception staff. Once your dentist has been notified you’ll be directed to a separate waiting area, a calm and relaxing atmosphere where you can read the days newspaper or peruse a magazine in peace. There is plenty of free parking both on the small private side road immediately outside the practice and on the main road.
It’s often difficult to get away to the dentist during the working week, so we offer early morning appointments from 8am on Wednesdays, Thursdays and Fridays. Our private and Denplan patients have a complete out-of hour’s emergency service, this includes weekends and bank holidays.
We have step-free disabled access to all parts of the practice (treatment rooms, reception, waiting room and toilet). Home visits are available for private patients who are incapacitated. We have just proudly installed a brand new decontamination room for the cleansing and sterilisation of all our instruments. Our protocol and equipment go far beyond essential requirements and our shining CQC report reflects this.
History of the Practice
Our practice was founded by Mr G Fleetwood around 1904 at Brook House, South St Midhurst across the road from the Spread Eagle Hotel as a satellite practice of his surgery in South Street Chichester. It is believed that his transport between Chichester and Midhurst was a horse drawn carriage, the Chichester practice had a stable & coachman’s cottage in its rear garden.
Mr Fred Summers who lived locally in Easebourne and then in West Lavington joined the practice after the Second World War and was a partner in the practice until the late 1970’s.
Power cuts in Midhurst were a frequent occurrence in the early years and a Treadle Drill was in use as a backup until the mid-1970s. The practice in Midhurst increased to two full-time surgeries and remained in South Street until December 1982 when it moved to its present location on Bepton Road.
For many years the practice also provided dental treatment for the staff & patients at a surgery in the King Edward V11 hospital.
