First Dental, Grove Park NHS

Welcome to First Dental. Please browse through our pages for information.
If you have any questions, contact us on 020 8857 8892


Following the latest Government guidance, we are pleased to begin planning our return to practice.

We are committed to prioritising the safety of all patients and of our team, and as such there may be differences to how you are able to access dental services for the time being. Patients requiring an appointment or dental advice will need to first telephone the practice. Our triage dentist will assess your problem by phone and offer advice or if it falls into the strict emergency criteria, we will offer you an emergency slot.

Please note: The practice will look different as it observes social distancing and hygiene rules. The dental team may also be wearing different protective equipment to what you are used to seeing.
