Claire Critchley

Clinical Lead
GDC No. 83243

Claire is our clinical lead at Dart Vale Dental Care. She offers both private and a very small amount of NHS dentistry in a modern, friendly and comfortable environment offering the highest level of patient care. Claire qualified in 2004 from the University of Manchester, gaining honours in her final examinations. In 2010 Claire and her family relocated to Devon and she started her position at Dart Vale. Claire has always had a love for working in general practice and sets her standards high. She likes to use minimally invasive techniques in line with current theory. This includes teeth whitening and the direct building up and shaping of teeth using the latest materials. Claire’s other passion is the dental care of children. She has three young children of her own and this has helped give her a real ability to make dental visits for children a fun and positive experience. Outside dentistry, Claire’s time is largely spent having fun with her family and raising her three children Emily, Harriet and Edward.
