Preventive dentistry is our real passion

Preventive dentistry is our real passion

HERE at Wood Lane Dentistry, despite all our qualifications and the hi-tech dentistry we are known for, our real passion is in preventive dentistry.

“So what is preventive dentistry?”

Preventive dentistry is a discipline or philosophy that many private practices have adopted, especially those closely linked with Denplan.

We believe it is the modern way to practise dentistry, because sometimes no dentistry is the best dentistry! It certainly means less to be nervous about.

Preventive dentists and their hygiene team work together with you to catch decay and gum disease before it happens, or as it starts, and then use a variety of methods to prevent problems. Common examples of this are:

1. The use of fluoride pastes to “harden up” early areas of decay or fissure sealant.

2. Fissure sealants. These are plastic coatings that can be placed on to the grooves of back teeth and stop bacteria from being able to attack these difficult-to-clean areas. There is a decade of research that shows they really work!

3. Regular hygienist appointments to help keep plaque and tartar away and reduce your chances of developing gum disease.

“But I have lots of fillings already. It’s too late for me.”

It is never too late! If you have lots of fillings already you are probably at a higher risk of developing new decay and so preventive dentistry is even more important for you.

By getting you checked once or twice a year we can help reduce the chance of your old fillings failing and new decay starting.

“Private dentistry is expensive, right?”

It doesn’t need to be. That is the beauty of preventive private dentistry — to prevent future expensive treatment.

You can join a preventive plan here at Wood Lane for as little as £10.30 per month.

For more information, call us on 0118 972 2626 or visit

We will even waive our usual new patient examination fee if you sign up on the day to one of these maintenance plans.

About us

Wood Lane is a friendly family dental practice situated in Sonning Common not far from both Henley and Caversham.

We have our own car park at the rear of the building and are very happy to see children of our adult patients for free.

They are the lifeblood of our work here in the community. Ninety-five per cent of the children we see here at the practice will reach adulthood without a single filling.

This approach made us finalists at the natonal dental awards for practice of the year!

So, if you want to be part of our success story, give us a ring and book an appointment.
