About us

We are a vibrant, independently owned dental practice group, big enough to offer to support you but small enough to not be a corporate!

BDA Good Practice and  Denplan Excel members

The NHS contract

You will work a minimum of four days a week within normal working hours (Monday - Friday 9.00am – 5.00pm) in our Ashington practice.

You will be expected to provide around 500-600 UDAs per month, though there may be opportunity to increase this should that be mutually beneficial. We anticipate this will take four to five days per week depending on your pace of work and experience.

Private treatment

The associate’s position is primarily to see NHS patients though there is always potential for private treatment.

Your Fees

Good UDA rate + 50% of your private fees + a Welcome Bonus of up to £3,000.00.

We have six associate dentists who have a range of experience and areas of interest and encourage intra-practice referrals and a fantastic team of well-established support staff. Our nurses hold many post qualification certificates including cross infection, fluoride application, implantology, radiography, sedation, oral health education.

We have a great relationship with our labs. Mick and Paul are always willing to discuss that awkward case on the phone or even come out to meet up with you and your patient for a truly integrated approach.


We are a fully air conditioned computerised, paperless practice. We have digital x-rays, intra and extra oral photography, the Wand, fibre optics, endosonics, implants, electrosurgery, rotary endo etc. We offer private IV sedation which you can carry out yourself or refer to other dentists in the practice. We have a surgical microscope, which will be available for you to use for private endodontic cases.

Opening hours

The surgery is available for you to see NHS patients from 9.00 am – 5.00pm Monday to Friday. The surgery could be made available on Saturdays for either dental or non-dental treatments by separate arrangement.


Alistair Bartlett currently sees patients on a private (mostly Denplan) basis. This list could be transferred to the right person in three or four years. If you would like to get involved in the treatment of patients having implants this may also be possible once you have a proven track record with us.

Alistair is always available for joint cases of a more complex nature. Whether you just want to chat over a treatment plan or share in your patient’s care please just ask.

We provide free access to 32 hours of verifiable CPD each year, but over and above that our clinical lead dentist is happy to help you with your appraisal and PDP development and provide mentoring and support at a mutually agreed level.


You must have an NHS England performer number.
