Dentists in Newcastle, taking care of your smile!
Here at Simpson and Nisbet in Jesmond, our goal is to ensure that you achieve optimal dental and oral health and that we give you the knowledge to be able to maintain this.
On welcoming you to our Dental Centre on Osborne Road, we will take the time to discuss any of your concerns in the privacy of our treatment rooms. This can include your past dental experiences and anything we need to learn from that in relation to your future care.
We will also take the time to evaluate any issues arising from your Smile Check questionnaire (see below).
After a thorough dental health check of your teeth and gums including a soft tissue and oral cancer screen, we may take digital x-rays and digital images to help us to develop both short and longer term treatment plans where appropriate.
If the plan is acceptable, we will be able to provide you with a clear, itemised estimate and arrange further suitable appointments for any treatment to begin.

Helping you maintain a healthy smile
A beautiful smile should be based on healthy teeth and gums. Under the instruction of our experienced hygienists and therapists, the quality of hygiene service at Simpson and Nisbet is exemplary. Our hygiene appointments ensure preventative clinical treatment including hand and ultra sonic scaling, prophylactic jet stain removal, dietary and cleaning advice, as well as periodontal management, advice and recommendations. We have a team of four highly qualified dental hygienists and dental therapists to assist you with this aim.
We will work with you to develop a customised dental plan that incorporates a regular dental examination, periodontal (gum) treatment by a trained dental hygienist or therapist and X-rays in order to uncover or treat problems as early as possible. We will also recommend a hygiene plan in order to keep your mouth in optimum health and minimise the risk of gum disease and future dental problems.
If this is your first visit to us at our Dental Centre on Osborne Road you may also want to consider, once you are dentally fit, whether you wish to become a member of Denplan within our practice as your easy payment option for future visits with all the benefits that Denplan provides. You will be assured to know that we have also been awarded a Denplan Excel accreditation due to our high standards of clinical care, something which we as a professional team of dentists, dental hygienists and therapists, dental nurses and reception staff are extremely proud of. Alternatively, you also have the option of paying for the treatments you require. You will be happy to know that we can offer flexible payment options to suit your budget.
