There are buses to Ossett every 10 mins from Wakefield and Dewsbury with the nearest train station being Wakefield. They do have onsite parking available on a rota basis; however there is a long stay car park within a 1 minute walk of the practice with the lowest rates anywhere in Wakefield.

The client base is NHS with over 70% paying patients, the majority of which have been at this practice over 30 years and have seen their children and grandchildren now attending this practice regularly.  They, like most practices do offer private treatments to our patients and we achieve a steady income from this. Currently they are taking on new patients but this is for a limited period only.

We believe in building for the future - that's why we invest huge amounts of time and money every year into developing our dentists and their surgeries. We've also created an organisation that manages the day-to-day distractions - leaving our dentists free to concentrate on developing their skills and careers.
