Welcome to Steyndent Dental Practice

Steyndent is located in the picturesque village of Steyning, West Sussex.

We offer both NHS and Private dental care, having been an established local dental practice since 1985.

At Steyndent, our aim is to provide patients with excellent quality dental care in conjunction with a full preventative programme, which is all carried out in comfortable and relaxing surroundings.

To ensure safety, patients that register with us will have a concise medical history taken. An initial consultation will include recordings of the condition of teeth and gums along with X-rays if they are considered necessary.

Any treatment that is required will be discussed along with any options that are available and an estimate will be given for every course of action that is necessary to maintain dental fitness.

Zoom tooth whitening

The zoom chair side whitening system is a scientifically advanced tooth whitening procedure.

It's safe,effective and fast.in around an hour your teeth will become dramatically whiter.

Zoom chair side whitening is ideal for anyone looking for immediate results.

The procedure begins with a short preparation to cover your lips and gums, leaving only your teeth exposed. 

The dentist then applies the proprietary zoom whitening gel, which is designed to be used with a special light. 

The zoom gel and light work together to gently penetrate your teeth, breaking up stains and discolouration.

With proper care your smile will sparkle for years.


Dental Implants

Dental implants could make a dramatic difference to the way your mouth feels, looks and functions whether you are missing just one tooth or have no teeth at all, whatever your age.

A dental implant is a precisely anchored artificial replacement for the root portion of your natural tooth and is anchored into your jaw bone to support a crown, bridge or to secure a denture firmly in place.


Implants are considered to be the best treatment for missing teeth in many situations.
