About us

Welcome to The Lodge Dental

The Lodge Dental is a well established friendly dental practice located in Clayton, Manchester.

We have cared for the local community and surrounding areas since 1942.

We have a dedicated and experienced team that provide excellent dental care in comfortable and relaxed surroundings. All our team are passionate about their work and attend regular continuing professional development courses to keep our skills and knowledge up to date so that we work safely under the General Dental Councils guidelines.

Our Therapists provide high quality care and endeavour to always maintain a high standard when treating patients.

The Lodge Dental plays an important part in our community by being part of a ‘Buddy Practice’ scheme it allows us to access to the four local schools to identify children that require dental treatment and also to encourage regular dental visits. All children attending these schools have direct access to our dental practice. We also work alongside midwifes and health visitors when projects such as ‘Baby teeth do matter’ are targeted.

Overall the Lodge Dental looks after patients and their needs in the best way possible. We aim to provide a service so that patients are satisfied and return to us in the future.

The Lodge Dental provides NHS and independent dental treatment.
