About Us

First class dental treatment from caring, compassionate professionals

Trust your dental care to Upton Dental, and high quality treatment is a given. But what really sets the practice apart is the fact that we combine clinical excellence with a friendly, approachable manner. We always make sure the treatment we offer is carefully tailored to you as an individual – and take care to explain what we’re doing in straightforward way. This means you’ll always know exactly what’s going on, how much it will cost, and why it’s the right choice for you.

This is a dental practice with real personality, where clinical excellence is accompanied by a warm, human approach and genuine respect for everyone who crosses our threshold. The practice owner, Hennie van der Merwe, knows how important it is to take the time to understand people as well as their dental issues. His caring, patient-centred attitude runs through the entire practice.

We know that most people don’t especially look forward to visiting the dentists, but we’ll go out of our way to make your time with us as pleasant as possible. We’re used to dealing with nervous patients and we take your concerns seriously, addressing them with sympathy and compassion. Our staff are good at putting people at their ease and will make your comfort a top priority. This is one of the reasons why we have so many long-standing patients!

The right surroundings to put you at your ease from the start

The practice itself also plays a big part in what makes Upton so different. It’s in a convenient location on Blandford Road on the outskirts of Poole. But more than this, it has a comfortable, welcoming atmosphere to match the attitude of the people you’ll meet here. We think you’ll enjoy the beautiful garden surroundings, too. Hennie loves nature and this certainly comes across in the setting of our practice.

We’ll be happy to make an appointment for you to come and have a chat with us – whether you’re looking for a high quality general dentistry practice, or have a specific issue which you want to sort out effectively at the right price. We’re highly experienced in offering implants, teeth whitening, Inman Aligners and all aspects of cosmetic dentistry – but we get just as much satisfaction from carrying out successful preventative dentistry to save the need for more extensive treatment further down the line.
