Droitwich Dental Studio

DROITWICH Dental Studio is a busy practice right in the heart of the High Street and its owner AJ and his dentist wife, Neha, are really pleased and humbled that their patients nominated them for an award.

AJ said: “I have had more that 2,000 thank you cards from patients and I am really touched that patients put our name forward.”

Droitwich Dental Studio has all the latest technology available to ensure patients’ teeth and oral health is the best it can possibly be. AJ and Neha, have had the building majorly revamped so it is accessible to absolutely everyone including full disabled access.

There were just two staff working at the previous practice - Droitwich Dental Studio now has 12, creating and attracting many local jobs to the High Street.

The practice does not take NHS patients but instead offers an affordable monthly membership scheme to keep prices to a minimum.

AJ said: “People can tend to worry that if they don’t find an NHS dentist, it won’t be affordable - we prove that’s not the case”.
