Arundel Lodge Dental Surgery principal Dr. Downey qualified from Guys Hospital, London and has been a dentist in Dorking for 26 years. Dr Downey suffered toothache as a child & from then on decided he wanted to help others who were also in pain. He had always enjoyed making intricate models & was told from an early age that he would be well suited to skilled work with his hands. Dr Downey, took the opportunity to become the practice owner in 2005 to ensure that all aspects of patient care were within his control.
Since then tArundel Lodge Dental Surgery has grown thanks to Dr Downey’s expertise, excellent reputation in the area, and his caring and honest approach. Similarly, the rest of the dental team are also welcoming, competent, supportive and understanding, ensuring that each and every patient has a positive experience with us.
“Becoming a practice owner was a very important personal milestone– as a result of owning my practice I can guarantee that all aspects of patient care & treatment are within my control & if a very complex treatment is beyond my capability and it is in our patient’s best interest we can refer to a local specialist team.”-James Downey.
Whilst we are a general private practice, we do have an interest & reputation for helping nervous patients, along with improving our patients’ smiles. We are closely aligned with a specialist practice in Dorking for any necessary patient referrals for complex endodontic and periodontal problems.
