Welcome to the team at Ashbury Dental Care and Ashbury Referrals.

 We’re a friendly team of dentists located just outside Exeter working in a spectacular, purpose built dental practice overlooking the Otter Estuary in Budleigh Salterton. We are situated around 15 minutes form Junction 30 of the M5 at Exeter and have free and easy on-site parking as well as spectacular views. Relax in the lounge with a coffee in front of the log fire during the winter or sit in the garden with a cold drink listening to the birds and watching the wildlife during the summer.

Our team of dentists, hygienists and dental therapists have all be chosen for their outstanding clinical skills, but more importantly they are all friendly and approachable. They are backed up by a fantastic nursing and admin team who support them every step of the way and have helped Ashbury Dental Care to grow largely through word of mouth recommendations.

Our team is here to help you make visiting the dentist a great experience.
We are friendly, honest and above all we are here to give you the smile that you always dreamed of.
