Dr Chris Wood opens Audley Dental Solutions in Oxfordshire
Audley Dental Solutions was officially opened last week by Dr Chris Wood in Stratton Audley, near Bicester, Oxfordshire. Dr Wood has converted a barn in Stratton Audley into a modern dental surgery “to offer patients a broader service”.
He says: “I have also invested in the latest technology and kitted out my new practice with state-of-the-art equipment, including a CT scanner which delivers 3D x-ray imagining in conjunction with advanced CAD technology.”
After 16 years trading as Chris Wood Dental Implant Solutions in Buckinghamshire, Dr Wood re-branded and moved to Oxfordshire. The new surgery marked its opening with a special event for dental professionals to showcase the new service offering.
Dr Wood said: “Our company culture has always been to provide high levels of expertise and service, with compassion and care. But our vision was to keeping growing as a business and bring more specialists into the team to enable us to provide a better service to our patients. We are delighted to have moved into Oxfordshire and look forward to serving many patients in the county.”
Audley Dental Solutions offers a wide range of dental services such as dental implants (including same day dental implants), prosthodontics, endodontics and periodontics. Dr Wood has recruited endo specialist Dr Amar Mehta, periodontist specialist Dr Pritesh Raval, prosthodontic specialist Dr Preeyan Patel, and dental hygienist Kate Barker.
The new specialists join Dr Wood and dental implant surgeon Dr Martina Pirklova. With more than 30-years experience in dentistry Dr Wood, a Fellow of the Royal College of Surgeons, has placed more than 2,500 dental implants.
Dr Wood continued: “Since starting, we’ve been passionate about giving people their smiles back. Now we have the facilities and expertise available to provide a broader range of dental solutions, giving even more people their dream smile, and allowing us to support a wider number of dental practitioners.
“I opened my new surgery in Oxfordshire due to a growing demand for specialist dental services. We did some market research and established that a lot of dentists needed more specialists to refer their patients to. So, we decided to create a hub of dental experts in one place that is outside the city and easy for people to visit.
“To have the variety of skills we offer in a rural setting is quite unique. By moving to our beautiful barn conversion, we not only created the space to expand our team, but we have also built an exceptional surgery that is very high-spec and modern. Renovating an old barn gave us a unique opportunity to design a very modern surgery, with the patient and our services in mind from the beginning and we’re very pleased with the result.”
He added: “We have created a surgery where, from the moment a patient enters, they feel respected, safe, comfortable and valued. Our investment in the best technology on the market will also help us provide the best possible service to our patients. Implants really do change the quality of peoples’ lives.”
