About Us

We are delighted you have chosen Long Buckby Dental for the care of your teeth. If you are not yet a patient then we hope you will decide to join us soon.

Our experienced team is led by Dr Sylvia Bentley, who is the owner of the practice. A graduate from Guy’s Hospital with some 17 years work under her belt as a dentist, Dr Bentley lived in Long Buckby for a number of years and has worked in Northamptonshire for all of her working life. When the Long Buckby dental surgery came up for sale, it was the perfect opportunity to combine the dream of running her own practice with working in familiar surroundings.

Dr Bentley is supported by a very able and experienced team. Our associate dentist, Andrew McSweeney, joined the practice in August 2013. Andrea Thompson and Ellie Osborne are our practice nurses and Nikki Payne is our receptionist. They each make a vital contribution to the smooth running of the dentist.

Together, we are committed to providing the best level of care for our patients. We get to know each individual with the aim of developing a personalised treatment plan that focuses on prevention, as well as cure. Each of our patients is asked to complete a medical history allowing us to build an accurate picture of their general health. This helps us to offer the right treatments.

We have two fully equipped surgeries to work from; each of which has been renovated to include the latest dental equipment. Our reception area has been decorated and fitted out with new heaters that are cool to the touch to prevent small hands from getting burned and Nikki, our receptionist, has taken delivery of the latest computer software which will improve efficiency both for the patient and the surgery.
