A bit about us

Stephen Davies established Ainsty Dental as a private York dental practice in 2006. We provide a wide range of treatments including routine dental care, restorative treatments, dental implants and cosmetic dentistry. We offer a choice of payment options such as Denplan, in addition to pay as you go. To help you budget for dental care we offer fixed monthly payments with Denplan dental payments plans.

We aim to see registered patients in discomfort on the same day. Also we have an out of hours service for severe dental emergencies. If you are not a registered patient you are still welcome to attend the practice if suffering from a dental emergency and we will endeavour to see you as soon as possible.

On the 31st of October 2012 the practice had its first inspection by the Care Quality Commission who are the independent regulator of all health and social care services in England. The practice complied fully!
