Welcome to Hartley Dental
You’ll spend the first half an hour of your appointment with our Treatment Coordinator (one of our qualified and experienced Dental Nurses), who will take that time to complete your medical history and ask questions to find out what you want to achieve and desire from your Dental Care journey. They will then outline some of the services and treatments that may best suit you before accompanying you to your appointment with Dr. Charlie Fox, which consists of:
24 Point Oral Health Check
The 24 Point Oral Health Check where Charlie will take X-Rays, perform an Oral Cancer Screen, take clinical photographs of your teeth and various other key checks on your head, neck, mouth, teeth and gums. Charlie will also take the time to find out what YOU want from your journey with Hartley, making us totally patient led.The Treatment Coordinator will accompany you through this process to help make you feel at ease during your time in the Dentist’s chair and to enable them to complete part 3 of the process:
Identifying Your Options
This is a second half an hour with the Treatment Coordinator, who will help explain what was discussed during the Oral Health Assessment and decipher any jargon used by the Dentist into easy to understand language. This will help ensure you’re fully aware of what options are available to you and comfortable with what has been said so far. We want you to ask questions – don’t be shy – it’s about what’s best for you!
Full Treatment Plan
Dr Fox will formulate a full treatment plan for you, examples of which you can see below.
This will include a detailed analysis of your mouth and teeth as well as explaining what work is required, why it’s needed and how much it will cost. Check out an example treatment plan.
You’ll get all of this expert care and advice, for just £100 and there’s no obligation on your part to take up any treatment from Hartley Dental.
Our main goal is to improve your health and make you feel good about your smile – it’s a simple as that.
Why choose Hartley Dental Practice?
So what sets Hartley Dental apart from all the other Private Dentists in the Plymouth area? Well we think quite a lot actually, a few quick pointers below, which we think mean we really do offer a premium service:
An outstanding dentist
Dr Charlie Fox has worked at Hartley for over ten years, buying the practice in 2003. Charles believes in patient led care, offering advice and information at all stages of treatment. Not only is he an amazing dentist but he genuinely cares about all his patients.
Dedicated Treatment Coordinators
Our Treatment Coordinator (TC) is there specifically to assist our patients through their treatment – and we don’t mean a Dental Nurse who moonlights as a TC between appointments or for only a few hours a week – we mean a full time and DEDICATED role, which is tailored to fit YOUR needs.
Nicky is a highly experienced and knowledgeable nurse, who can competently advise and support you through what for many is a daunting process – we realise this and do everything possible to make the journey easy for you.
Luxury is not often a word you’d associate with a dentist but it’s one that sits at the heart of what we do. Our waiting area is (simply put) luxurious, with top quality furniture and a selection of sports magazines, lifestyle magazines, shipping magazines, military editions and even private eye, which are all refreshed on a monthly basis. We also have a daily Delivery of the Western Morning News and ‘i’ newspapers for your pleasure.
We offer free Nespresso coffee to all our visitors – something to help calm the nerves perhaps!?
We have free Wifi in the waiting room – helping you check work emails or keep abreast of events on your social media while you wait.
A lovely garden area, where in the summer you can sit in the sun and wait for your appointment.

“It all started as I’m getting married in November and I was concerned my wedding photos wouldn’t show in my face how happy I am.
From the minute I plucked up the courage to make that phone call and take the first step to put a smile back on my face, i was made to feel at ease, every member of the team was so professional and friendly that it gave me the confidence to go ahead with the treatment I so longed for.
If you’re considering dental treatment I would highly recommend to just go for it; the dentist, in my eyes, is no longer a dreaded place. Dr Charles made me feel relaxed at all times and it was worth every penny.
My experience has certainly put a smile on my face and I can put behind me my awful experiences as a child growing up. It’s hard to put into words how I feel right now; I’m so happy now looking forward to our wedding!”
