Welcome to the David Neal Dental Practice

Dedicated to your dental care

Based in the heart of Hastings, our family-owned dental practice is just a five minute walk from Hastings mainline rail station.

At David Neal Dental, formerly Total Dentalcare Hastings, we offer a wide range of dental services and solutions to the local Hastings community, and across East Sussex. Whatever your oral care needs, and whatever your age, we are dedicated to bringing the very best in dental care to every member of the family. David Neal Dental welcomes both private and NHS patients.

Our team is made up of caring dentists, dental nurses, hygienists and auxillary staff who are all committed to bringing healthier mouths and teeth – and more beautiful smiles – to their patients. We always aim to make your visit as relaxed and comfortable as possible.

So, whether you need restorative dental care such as root canal treatment or dentures, require tooth replacement with crowns, bridges or dental implants, want dental veneers or teeth whitening for a brighter, straighter smile in time for your wedding, have decided to replace your old amalgam fillings with white fillings – or if it’s simply time for a routine dental check-up – the David Neal Team will be delighted to help you.

COVID-19 Update

Dear Patients,

We’d like to thank you for your patience and understanding during this extremely challenging time in our profession.

The team have been busy putting processes in place and have built on our current infection control procedures to ensure the environment you return to is safe and provides the highest protection against COVID-19, both for our patients and our staff.

We are now able to carry out treatment which is deemed an ‘Aerosol Generating Procedure.’ This includes permanent fillings, teeth cleaning and all other treatments which require the use of the dental drill. We are currently working through our list of patients who contacted us during the lockdown period. Due to the process for Aerosol Generating Treatments, we are unable to offer appointments on Tuesdays or Wednesdays for these treatments and it may take us longer than usual to see you. Please bear with us during this period.

We have made some changes to our patient journey to assist with reducing transmission of the virus and maintaining social distancing as far as reasonably practicable. When making an appointment, the Reception Team will discuss our new processes and procedures for attending the practice and answer any questions you may have.

We are still be able to offer telephone consultations to anyone who requires dental advice. Please call the number above to speak to a member of our Reception Team who will be happy to assist you.

Best wishes,

The David Neal Dental Team
