Manor Lodge Dental Surgery was first established in the heart of the charming town of Totnes, Devon in 1937. Dr Robert Jenkins, our principal dentist, first began working at the practice in 1990. Robert is passionate about providing top class dentistry and completely committed to achieving great results in his work. In 1996 Robert became the sole owner of the practice, and through hard work and dedication has instilled his passion into the ethos of the team until today, where excellence sits at the core of the business.

Following Robert’s completion of an MSc degree in dental implantology in 2007, we went on to establish the South Hams Implant Centre. Investment in the latest CEREC CAD CAM technology allows precise on-site milling of beautiful inlay, onlay, crowns bridges and veneer restorations during a single visit. This was a big step for the practice and gave the team the opportunity to expand their skill set and develop their professional abilities even further.

We have been awarded the British Dental Association 'Good Practice' award and adhere to all current guidelines as laid out by the British Dental Association (BDA), Care Quality Commission (CQC) and the General Dental Council (GDC). As well as offering routine dental care, we are a referral centre for other professionals for Dental Implants, CBCT scanning and Endodontic procedures. Our CBCT scanner is also used by local hospitals who require a complete 3D x-ray of the jaws. We are proud that many dental colleagues also choose Robert to care for their own mouths.

A visit to Manor Lodge Dental Surgery is so much more than just a visit to the dentist. We work closely with each and every patient to ensure that they receive the best possible quality of care and leave the practice with a smile that they’re proud of.
