About The Practice

Dental practice

The Practice was established in 1880 by Mr Eric Bradley.  Eric was succeeded by two of his three sons, Peter and Alan (the third becoming an architect) Peter and Alan also spent their entire careers at Bradley’s. 

We have come a long way since then!  The practice is located in a fine Regency building set in its own grounds.  We have a large number of dentists and hygienists working out of 10 fully equipped operating rooms and we are a continuously growing clinic – welcoming new patients, offering novel and advanced treatment options, and taking referrals for complex work from local dentists.

Our philosophy is to provide outstanding care to all of our patients, care with empathy and understanding, and to provide that care as painlessly as possible.  We offer treatment privately and under the Denplan care contract.

The Practice Facilities

Our surgeries are maintained to the highest standards.  We have digital radiography throughout and that enables clear imaging and reduced dosages to patients. 

Our clinic is equipped with a Central Sterilization Room ensuring that we take hygiene and the protection of our patients very seriously.   Upstairs, is a dedicated implant suite fitted to the highest standards and with the latest equipment.    

We also have an on-site laboratory that makes the teeth we fit into your mouth!  Three dental technicians expertly craft dentures, crowns and bridges, and teeth that are attached to dental implants. 

By having an on-site production facility we are able to establish a 3-way conversation between our patient, dental technician and dentist – ensuring that your new teeth are exactly how you wanted them!
