We are a private and NHS family practice situated in Longstanton, Cambridgeshire providing a comprehensive range of general, preventative, restorative and cosmetic dentistry in a modern, safe and friendly environment.
We are currently not accepting New NHS patients. Patients are welcome to join us on our Monthly Denplan Scheme or as a Private Patient. Please contact us for more information on +44(0) 1954 782 181.
Our friendly and experienced team are dedicated to giving all our patients, both children and adults, the highest standards of dental care. Our dentists and hygienist work with our patients to fix any existing dental problems and offer advice on how to care for teeth and gums and prevent dental problems from occurring in the future.
At The Village Dental Practice we provide an array of cosmetic dental treatments including our extremely popular teeth whitening, plus veneers, crowns and white fillings to create a perfect smile makeover. We also offer botox treatment, dermal fillers, laser treatments and chemical face peels to make you look and feel years younger at our sister practice based next door to us here. For more information please go to the website www.cygnetclinic.co.uk.
Here at The Village Dental Practice we understand that it can be difficult to budget for dental care and we don’t want that to be an obstacle to you getting the treatments you require.
We therefore offer two different membership plans, which each represent significant savings over paying each time for your appointments. If you would like more information, please contact us for details.

Every year we lose valuable surgery time because of patients failing to attend their appointments, or cancelling at short notice. This makes it more difficult for us to accommodate our patients in need of urgent treatment, for existing patients to book appointments and for new patients to register here. It also cost the surgery a considerable amount of money.
Under NHS regulations, we are unable to charge NHS patients who fail to attend for their appointments or who cancel at short notice (less than 24hrs notice is insufficient notice). A patient who fails to attend their appointment or cancels at short notice, will be sent a letter, warning them that they will lose their NHS entitlement here, if they fail to attend or cancel at short notice again within a 12 month period. In the event that a further appointment is missed or cancelled at short notice within this 12 month period, we will withdraw the offer of NHS treatment at this practice. Should they wish to remain a patient here, they will need to register here on a private basis.
Discretion may be used if there is a good reason for the appointment being missed.
As with all medical facilities, we aim to see our patients on time but due to the nature of health care, this is not always possible. However, if a patient turns up late for their appointment so that treatment cannot be carried out, this will be regarded as failing to attend.
To cover the surgery running costs a charge of £1 per minute will be made for private treatment appointments that have been missed or cancelled at short notice. (For example, a missed 30 minute appointment will incur a charge of £30.)
This policy does not affect your ability to seek NHS care at another NHS practice.
