Devon Dental, formerly Croydon House Dental Implant Centre, was first established in 1928 by Arthur Trustcott, making it the most established dental practice in Ashburton.
The practice has recently completed a major refurbishment and extension, which has created a light and tranquil environment for patients and staff all on the ground floor with wheelchair access. We currently have 4 dentists, 2 surgical specialists and 2 hygienists treating private patients.
