At The Essex Dental Clinic, our aim is to provide the highest quality of dental care and to treat each patient how we would wish to be treated.

About The Clinic

The Essex Dental Clinic

The Essex Dental Clinic is a state-of-the-art, family-friendly dental practice situated a few minutes’ drive from the stunning Essex Golf and Country Club. Our brand new building is light, spacious and airy, offering a warm welcome to all our patients.

Our highly experienced dentist, Louise McAllister, says her main focus is ‘always to treat patients as I would like to be treated myself’. With this in mind, she has created a dental practice that offers beautiful surroundings, a welcoming environment for patients of all ages and the very latest dental equipment and techniques. At The Essex Dental Clinic, the patient experience is everything.

We believe that prevention is better than cure and this ethos is evident in all areas of our generalchildren’s and restorative dentistry services. The Essex Dental Clinic is compliant with all of the latest regulations. We accept NHS and private patients, and look forward to welcoming you to our practice.


During lockdown in 2020 the practice has been open and acting as an Urgent Dental Care Centre treating patients with dental emergencies. 

Since 8th June, the practice has re-opened to all of its regular patients. We prioritise those patients with urgent dental needs and patients who are mid-treatment. We are then starting to carry out some routine dentistry. 

During lockdown 2.0 we continue to be open seeing both our regular and emergency patients so please do not hesitate to contact us should you need dental treatment. 

We are following all of the latest guidelines and have put new procedures and equipment in place to keep both you and our staff safe. This includes a new air extraction system which brings fresh air into the surgeries and extracts any aerosol which is created during dental procedures.

Necessary paperwork including Medical History questionnaires and consent forms will be sent to you prior to your appointments via e-mail or text message link, please make sure these are completed by you at home prior to your appointment or we may not be able to see you.  

Please note that the waiting room and patient toilet are currently not available for use.

All the new procedures are explained on a short video on our Facebook & Instagram pages.

Clinic facilities

It is important that you feel comfortable throughout every stage of your treatment. When you arrive at The Essex Dental Clinic, you will be greeted by staff in our large reception and seated in the waiting area. These calm, relaxing surroundings include a TV, disabled access, a hearing loop, disabled WC and baby change facilities.

The Essex Dental Clinic has four dental surgeries, all of which make use of the latest equipment. We have intra-oral cameras so that you can see inside your own mouth and be shown any problem areas you need to target when cleaning your teeth, for example. These cameras also help our dentists to educate patients and explain why a particular course of treatment has been recommended.

We use digital X-rays to reduce the amount of radiation to which a patient is exposed. We also have televisions with wireless headphones above each of our dental chairs, which is often a welcome distraction for nervous patients or children.

At The Essex Dental Clinic, strict procedures are in place to ensure patient wellbeing and the highest possible standards of cleanliness and hygiene.

There is an air conditioning and fresh air ventilation system throughout the building for patient comfort. Ample free parking is available at The Essex Dental Clinic.
