Practice Spotlight - Darlington

An introduction to Bupa Dental Care Darlington

Purpose-built, this eight surgery practice offers plenty of room in the clinical areas and around the practice, with each surgery housing large windows offering plenty of natural light. Each surgery has extraction ventilation, sensor X-Rays, a Belmont chair, and the best layout for infection control.

This practice boasts capability and space for the extremely high turnover we have of both NHS and private patients. We have exceptionally skilled nurses, most have post-graduate qualifications (radiography, OHE, and sedation training) and all are incredibly motivated within their roles.

The practice team

We have a well-established practice team at Darlington – with 13 Nurses, 11 Clinicians (including therapist support), three Receptionists, two Oral Surgeons, and a Practice Manager.

You can also expect full clinical support from the Principle Dentist in practice who also works with dentists in a range of surrounding Bupa Dental Care practices.

"We all take pride in our day to day and take ownership over bringing solutions to the table."

Lauren Scaife - Practice Manager Darlington

“The team bar none is one of the hardest-working teams I’ve encountered. We all take pride in our day to day and take ownership over bringing solutions to the table – I also enjoy having an up to date modern and spacious practice.”

A few words from Practice Manager, Lauren

I joined the practice as it was renowned for excellence in terms of patient care, infection control and had excellent opportunities to grow, with a few disciplines under one roof so it was ideal. The team bar to none is one of the hardest-working teams I’ve encountered. We all take pride in our day to day and take ownership of bringing solutions to the table.

The practice is central to town but far enough to get great parking. Darlington itself has a range of excellent facilities, such as a lovely town centre with lots of places to eat and any errands can be done within 5 minutes nearby – plus the beach is just 30 minutes away!

My advice: To people new to the profession, do not be daunted by our big practice. You will have an endless amount of support available to you and you’ll always know where to find us and will always have someone to ask as there are currently 36 of us here!

We have trained almost all of our nurses at the practice from joining to qualification, and all have stayed with us to continue their careers. We will give you the time you need and will invest in you if you do choose to stay with us.

Our practice culture

Our culture is centered around going above and beyond for patients. Whether you’re working with patients directly or indirectly, you’ll be based within an empowering environment to give your all to create positive experiences and broad smiles.

Our caring approach extends to our employees too. It’s why we’re so big on training, development, and progression. It’s also why our practices are such friendly, collaborative places – people quickly become friends as well as colleagues.

Why we're different

As the only corporate dental provider in the UK not backed by private equity, we’re in a unique position. We’re committed to the UK dental industry for the long-term – both private and NHS – and are ready to treat not just today’s patients, but generations to come.

Furthermore, Bupa has no shareholders, so we’re able to focus 100% on delivering the best service for customers. We are run commercially to ensure we remain competitive, but we reinvest 100% of our profits to help provide better care for patients across the world.
