About us

The Chequers Dental Practice was set up in 1980 in the heart of Salisbury. The practice has grown from strength to strength, with a team of dentists, specialists and hygienists providing comprehensive dental care to the local community and surrounding areas.

The practice has two main functions in servicing the community. Firstly, Chequers is a general dental practice providing comprehensive dental care for the whole family. Our main focus is on prevention and education to avoid dental problems and treatment. However, when treatment is needed, our highly trained team will provide advanced care to the highest standards. We welcome nervous patients and we have training in the latest relaxation and sedation techniques.

Our second role is to provide a referral service for local dentists to assist in complex cases. These are usually in the fields of:

  • Endodontics (root canal therapy)
  • Periodontics (treatment of gum disease)
  • Prosthodontics (replacement and restoration of teeth)
  • Oral Surgery
  • Implant dentistry
  • Sedation for nervous patients
  • Non-surgical facial aesthetics

Patients are usually referred by their dentist but we do also see self-referred patients.

Chequers prides itself in being at the cutting edge of dental technology. A microscope is used when treatment of the highest precision and accuracy is required. Chequers is one of only a few practices in Salisbury to have a Cone-Beam CT scanner as 3D imaging is becoming increasingly important in diagnosis and treatment planning within implant dentistry, endodontics and orthodontics.

The team at Chequers is committed to continuing professional development and postgraduate education. Our dentists are regularly involved in giving lectures on specialist subjects and teaching colleagues, within the area. They also provide oral health talks at local schools.

We understand that you have busy schedules and therefore provide Saturday appointments for your convenience. Every effort will be made to see patients with a dental emergency on the same day.

If you need to rearrange an appointment, please would you give the practice 24 hours notice so we can give your appointment to another patient.
