Established in 1985, Llandeilo Road Dental Surgery has been serving the dental needs of Cross Hands and beyond for over 30 years. We understand that many patients are apprehensive of dental treatment and therefore our aim is to treat patients at ease in a friendly and comfortable environment. Most of our staff members are Welsh speakers. The surgery was taken over by Aled Clement in 2015 and has since embarked on a programme of continuous improvements which has recently seen the provision of a dedicated decontamination room and an upgrade of the radiography equipment. The surgery has recently undergone a partial renovation to one of the surgeries and to the reception area. This represents almost £70,000 of investment in the surgery since 2015! All of our clinical staff are registered with the General Dental Council and Healthcare Inspectorate Wales where required and undertake regular training to keep up to date with current standards of dental care.
