Minor Oral Surgery - Patients
At the Dental Tree we have been providing Minor Oral Surgery since 2006.
In 2013 we added an anxiety management service whereby we can treat nervous patients, for example by sedation.
Clinics are held at our Exeter Close site on Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday and Friday.
Our professional team are highly trained and experienced in oral surgery, and will do their best to put you at ease and make your visit as stress free as possible.
