Our Core Values

Family owned for 37 years.  We are incredibly proud of the fact that we have been delivering smiles here in Wetherby since 1980. This is a family run business which has been upholding our core values for decades. We continue to nurture and grow our business not just to honour the past and present, but also to embrace the future of dentistry.

Genuine care.  ‘Care’ is a word which has become common currency and one to which lots of organisations pay lip-service. Here at Hopkinson Dental we believe that care is what happens when we treat you as we would a family member, putting your needs first and giving 110% effort. This is why we have so many patients who have been coming to see us for decades, they start as patients and become friends for life.

Creating confident patients.  Your whole outlook and experience of life can be affected, for better or for worse, by the condition of your mouth. We believe that a clean, comfortable and functional mouth is a right for everyone and every smile can be beautiful. With our care you can enjoy eating, speaking and socialising without the discomfort and inhibition that poor oral health can bring. If you are worried about how your smile looks we can offer gentle aesthetic solutions that will not damage your teeth.

Relationships based on trust.  Our business has stood the test of time because of the value we place on the relationships we have with our patients. We believe that building this relationship is a two-way process and we work hard to earn your trust. We take the time to explain every element of your care and make sure you are involved in all decisions about your treatment. Fees and timescales are always explained in advance and we promise to only give you treatment that is appropriate and affordable.

Innovation in clinical care.  Although we are proud of our tradition we are also avid scientists who love to innovate. We enthusiastically develop ourselves professionally and put our learning into practice. We embrace what technology can do for our patients and are continually moving with the times to keep our dentistry fresh and modern.

If there is ever a time when we don’t live up to these values please speak to us.

We always adhere to the General Dental Council’s principles and standards which you can see here.
