“I firmly believe in a holistic approach to dentistry, treating the person not the tooth or gums. For example, an x-ray is a 2D image of a 3D anatomical structure and does not always tell the full story so should be viewed with one eye on the accompanying patients symptoms and if they do not tally up, then something else, however unlikely is going on. A 30 year background in martial arts has recently led me to doing my yoga teacher training and has impaired on me a disciplined approach to life, a determination not to be defeated by whatever life throws at me, a desire to be the best version of me that I can an unwavering belief in and compassion for my fellow human beings. We hope to provide an empathetic, non-judgemental approach to our clients, enabling and empowering people to enjoy their smiles with confidence ALWAYS.”

Our environmental conscious philosophy has also lead to us trying as far as possible to eliminate paper waste at the practice, soon to be adopting more and more paperwork via tablet entry and email receipts etc, storing our data securely on the cloud.

Meet Jacqui our Practice Manager

Hi, I’m Jacqui the Practice Manager of City Dental Liverpool. I began my career in dentistry in 1982 – I signed up for a Youth Training Scheme (YTS) for six months; developed a passion for it and never left! Throughout my career, I have gained various dental nurse qualifications including: Dental Health Education and Fluoride Varnish Application. However, for the past 8 years I have focused on the strategic and fundamental issues of running a dental practice. I completed a Level 3 Certificate in Management in 2013 and a Level 5 Business and Management qualification in 2018. I strongly believe in providing excellent ‘customer care’ and strive to ensure this is paramount at every visit to the practice.

Patient, City Dental Liverpool

I have been a client of City Dental for 40 years. The current practice led by Darren Wright is completely professinal, the staff are courteous, obliging and welcoming and have always made me feel at ease. I would recommend Darren to all family and friends without reservation. Long may the practice continue. 

Neil Cunningham

Patient, City Dental Liverpool

I recently had my teeth straightened at city dental using 6 months smiles.  I had a severe open bite
with very crowded teeth which made cleaning difficult. I was fully prepared to need veneers and
was anticipating this when I went for my first appointment as my teeth were so out of shape, I
never believed that they could look “normal” just by having a brace alone.

Darren put me at ease immediately and sensed my phobia of the dentist! He explained everything and was confident that what I wanted was achievable without the need for veneers.  My brace was only on about 4 months and at every appointment Darren was knowledgeable and skilled which put me at ease, I could see changes almost daily.

Also, most of my appointments were fitted in during my lunch breaks which meant as a busy working mum I didn’t have to arrange childcare. Having my teeth fixed has improved my confidence in ways I never imagined. I no longer feel the need to cover my mouth when I smile. Thanks to the team at city dental, I still rave about you all
and would recommend this dentist 100%
