Hesslewood Lodge Dental Practice - over 28 years

The Practice originated in 1988, when we opened in Anlaby, Hull. Initially we were an NHS practice, but within three years it was apparent that the way we wanted to do dentistry was incompatible with the NHS and in 1991 our adult patients converted to the practice scheme, Denplan.

Eventually we elected to move our Practice Scheme to DPAS. DPAS was set up by three of the four original Directors of Denplan - they had the same mindset as us and we've had a very happy relationship with them for many years now.

We rapidly outgrew the premises we were in but we were tied into a lease up to the end of 1999. We were amazed to find our present site unoccupied and grasping the first opportunity, we moved the two and a half miles to our present site in Hessle.

It's no accident that we're here. We researched the site in detail before electing to move here. Transport links are exceptional - we're perfectly placed for travel in any direction. Even Leeds is just an hour away with a very easy M62 drive. It's no coincidence that we're here. The travel links are superb.

Our building is a little stunner, but it's surprisingly large inside. Built in 1840, it was originally the gatehouse to Hesslewood Hall - hence the name of the practice. Hesslewood Hall was the home of the Pease family, a well known family on the east coast. It's of sufficient importance to be included in Nikolaus Pevsner's architectural guides as a particularly fine example of a gate house and is a Grade II listed building.

Our child patients converted to private contract in 2001, making us a 100% private practice. We were then joined by Penny Joseph who had been practicing in Elloughton and her chief nurse Angie. Penny worked with us until her retirement in 2007.
