CQC regulates Damira Dental Studios to provide care at South Ham Dental Practice. Report published: 21 December 2018 See report


Welcome to Damira Dental Studios, South Ham, where your smile is our passion. We pride ourselves on offering high quality NHS & Private Dentistry to help with your dental wellness. Our friendly, highly qualified and experienced team are here to assist you.

Unfortunately, due to NHS restrictions on the treatment we can provide, we are only able to offer limited routine care. We are however able to service your needs if there is an emergency or you are in pain.

At present you may have seen in the media the NHS are requiring us to provide urgent care to all patients whether they are based at this practice or not. As you can imagine this is putting a strain on the services, we are able to provide as it is extremely busy.

We hope to be able to book routine appointments in for January 2021 but, we may have to rearrange again depending on how the pandemic develops. We do however have private slots available which are in less demand should you choose not to wait for NHS availability.

If you develop pain in the interim, please contact us on the day as we have NHS and private emergency appointments available. We are sorry for any inconvenience this may cause.
