Dr David Geddes, Head of Primary Care Commissioning for NHS England, officially opened the newest Alpha Dental Studio in the summer 2013.

The practice provides improved access to NHS dentistry in the area and is accepting new patients.

Dr Geddes said, “It was an honour to officially open the Alpha Dental Practice on behalf of NHS England. Access to good quality dental services, including regular check-ups, is vital for maintaining good oral health and it’s important that we make this as easy as possible by ensuring NHS dental care is available wherever it is needed. This practice will certainly help that and really benefit people in Chester-le-Street.”

Neeraj Diddee, Dentist and partner of the Alpha Dental Group said: “We’ve been providing high quality dental care in North Yorkshire and Teesside for years, and this practice in Chester le Street allows us to bring our expertise to the people of County Durham for the first time.

“Our practice in Gibside offers a mixture of early and late appointments, has ample free parking and all surgeries are on the ground floor for easy access.

“We are taking on new NHS patients at the practice, and would encourage anyone to get in touch who is looking for a dentist in the Chester-le-Street area.”

New patients can register with the practice by either downloading a registration form from  Registration forms are also available at the practice, completing an online booking form or emailing (Please state ‘chester le street’ in the subject field of your email)
