Meet the Staff and Associates of Celtic Dental Practice

Deintyddfa Celtic Dental Practice has been a dental surgery for 20 years. Prior to being converted the building served as a public house for many years .

Set in the heart of the beautiful Carmarthenshire countryside, our modern practice offers a range of services from routine dental treatment to facial aesthetics treatments. Our team is welcoming, caring and dedicated to providing first-class dental treatments at an affordable price.

We offer a range of plans to suit all circumstances and budgets, all with added peace of mind of being able to access out-of-hours emergency treatment.

About us

At Celtic Dental our focus is the individual. We understand that everyone is unique and that individuals will have different priorities with regards to their dental care.

We believe, in so far as is possible, that good dentistry should be:

  • pain free
  • minimally invasive
  • durable and long lasting
  • affordable

Our highly qualified team offer a range of dental and aesthetic treatments in a modern, caring environment.
