Admiral House Dental Practice is a local Berkhamsted dental practice in Hertfordshire, offering a full range of high-quality private dental care for the whole family. Our dental practice has been in business for over forty years providing results-driven dental treatments with patient comfort and confidence as our priority.
As in all walks of life, dentistry is constantly changing. Our staff undertake various continual professional development programmes to ensure that patients benefit from the latest techniques so are able to offer the most current methods and technology in our dental treatments.
YOUR FIRST VISIT
We appreciate visiting the dentist is seldom a favourite activity, but we want you to be at ease during your dental appointment so you are as comfortable as possible. Your initial visit will often begin with an informal chat to discuss any concerns you have about your teeth and overall oral health.
Once you are comfortable, we will then carry out a comprehensive 12-point check including inspection of your teeth, gums, and soft tissues.
The appointment includes any necessary digital X-rays to see what is happening below the surface of your teeth and do a quick routine oral cancer check. We often use a high-resolution oral camera to show you around your mouth and point out any areas of concern. We can then present this information to you, indicating any immediate needs and ongoing maintenance, with a tailored treatment plan over a timescale that suits you.
Please click here for a confidential medical questionnaire for you to complete before your first visit – you can bring this along or return by email if you prefer.
Fees and Payments
Our team will discuss any fees with you before proceeding with treatment. You can also refer to our fee schedule general costs. Payment is usually due at the end of each appointment. For dental treatments requiring multiple visits, a payment plan can be arranged with your dentist where a portion of the total cost gets paid at each appointment instead of a lump sum at the end of the treatment. We accept cash, most debit and credit cards, and cheques. We can also offer payment schemes.
Missed appointments waste time and resources. Cancelling your appointment with less than 48 hours notice will incur a charge. We will, of course, consider special circumstances before charging your account.
Patient and Staff Safety
Patients who are violent or abusive to practice personnel, other patients, or anyone else on the practice premises will be refused treatment and reported to the appropriate authorities.
Good communication with our patients is very important to us. In proposing treatment, we take account of your preferences and concerns. We explain all treatment options, where appropriate, and costs, so that you can make an informed choice. We also discuss any risks associated with the proposed treatment, so you are equipped with all the information you need to make the best decision.
We always explain what we are doing and why we are doing it. As a patient of the practice, you will receive recalls at agreed intervals as part of ongoing care. Please inform us of any changes in name or contact details so we keep accurate information on file.
As always I was made to feel very welcome and more importantly, very safe. All the staff were wearing full PPE. Dr Tandon is very professional and explains what is happening throughout the treatment. I highly recommend Admiral House.
I have a huge fear of the dentist! However, since moving to here, I have always felt so relaxed and comfortable when getting my teeth checked. Great place!
Just had my first check up at this dentist and would 100% recommend it. Very friendly welcome, professional and clean establishment. Also being able to book a Saturday appointment was appreciated.

Cannot praise Admiral House enough for sorting my tooth! Great urgent service and even a follow up call to see how my tooth was! Both me and my wife have switched to this practice. This is how dentistry should be done.
