The Briars has been a dental practice since 1908 and is today one of the foremost dental surgeries in Newbury, Berkshire and Southern England.
During the 1960's, the Practice became established as one of the premier private practices outside Harley Street and in the 1990's, developed into one of the first "Multi - Discipline" Specialist Dental Practices in the UK. In addition to providing high quality dentistry in Newbury, many of our dentists are active in the field of postgraduate dental education. This involves running courses and lecturing to many dentists across the UK and occasionally, internationally.
