Standish Street Dental Practice | Cosmetic Dentistry Burnley

Family Care

Caring for the whole family is at the very heart of Standish Street Dental Practice?s ethos. Dr Chris Wood and his team are immensely proud to have been looking after the dental health of families in Burnley for over 25 years. Leading the way in providing preventive and routine care and providing healthy smiles all round.

We adopt a preventative approach to patient care wherever possible and our experience has shown that a regular routine of monitoring by the dentist and oral hygiene care by our dental hygienists and oral health educator is the key to avoiding dental disease. If more intervention is needed we offer a comprehensive range of dental services and pride ourselves on giving outstanding patient care.

Routine Dental Care Especially for Children

We believe it is essential to educate children on the importance of taking care of their teeth from an early age. We are committed to continuing dental education and keeping abreast of changes in modern dentistry. We strive for excellence in oral health care for all our younger patients.

The focus of children''s care


A continuing programme of instruction in dental health tailored to the patient?s age. Preventative treatments such as fluoride varnish application and fissure sealants are provided where necessary.

Education and Encouragement

Patients will readily assume greater responsibility for their own dental health as they become more mature. Targets are set using child friendly oral health score© and wellbeing score© to enable patients to work towards a tangible goal.

Dentist supervision

Giving patients the highest possible standard of clinical expertise.

The Emphasis is on Fun

Learning about teeth can really be made fun; our preventative unit offers excellent learning tools to teach young ones, parents and teenagers all about healthy gums and teeth.

Friendly Environment

With friendly, caring, qualified staff who are all big children at heart, any child will soon feel at home. We also have a play room for any young ones attending the practice with parents and relatives.

Routine Dental Care for Mums and Dads

Dental check-ups

Regular dental examinations are vital for healthy teeth to enable the dentist to spot the development of any potential problems in the earliest stages. Mums and Dads are encouraged to attend for dental check-up?s every 6 ? 12 months.

Hygienist services

We have a dedicated team of hygienists who play a vital role in the delivery of our comprehensive preventive care programme. Our hygienists assess gum health and design individual preventive home care programmes to assist in the maintenance of excellent oral hygiene for life.

Where additional assistance is needed, our hygiene team will deliver dental hygiene treatments to clean the teeth, more extensive periodontal treatments can be undertaken to clean bacteria from gum pockets to assist in stabilisation of gum health. We encourage patients to visit the hygienists regularly for maintenance appointments. We have six hygienists to choose from all of whom have their own personal approach.

Routine treatments

It is inevitable that, from time to time, some patients will require restorative dental treatments. We use the latest technological advances and techniques to provide you with the best possible care. Our light-cured composite restorations are tooth coloured to give an enduring and aesthetic solution to filling cavities. The use of a high-powered microscope enables the dentists to perform complex and precise root canal treatments effectively. We work in combination with the best laboratories in the Northwest to construct crowns, bridges and dentures that our patients will be proud to show off when they smile. Visit the treatment section of this site for more examples of our recently completed cases.

If you prefer to spread the cost of your dental maintenance then Denplan care will help you to avoid the worry of unexpected expense.
