Sharrow Dental Surgery have been serving the local community in the Chelmsford area since 1964 and have been under current management since 1982. Our professional and friendly team are dedicated to delivering high quality dental care and driven by a desire to achieve clinical excellence with every visit. People will regularly say that the team of dentists, nurses and receptionists at Sharrow Dental are willing to go the extra mile and that is a core part of our practice ethos.

Our commitment to excellence in NHS and private dentistry has made Sharrow Dental a pillar of the community for well over a quarter of a century. We offer a broad spectrum of dental treatments, ranging from paediatric services, periodontal treatment and simple restorative dentistry to more complex anxiety management, cosmetic and implant dentistry.

We aim to provide the highest level of care and treatment from start to finish. We are an NHS dental practice but our sustained investment in cutting edge technology and workforce training means that we are able to provide comprehensive end-to-end treatment to accommodate the vast majority of our patients needs in-house. This includes, but is not limited to, implant dentistry, orthodontic treatment, intravenous sedation and complex surgical and trauma rehabilitation.

We treat each person as an individual and promise to involve you in every decision made about the health and appearance of your smile. We make sure that patients fully understand the treatment process before they make a decision, in order to make an informed, knowledgeable and personal choice.

Practice History and Philosophy

When Dr Clough took over Sharrow Dental Practice in 1982, it started out as a small three-chair NHS practice in the Old Moulsham area with a dental laboratory on site. As the population of Chelmsford has increased and the good reputation of the practice has grown over the years, the site has been expanded and revamped to produce the high-spec and clean, comfortable healthcare setting that our patients and staff enjoy today. Sharrow Dental now serves up to 15,000 patients in Chelmsford and the surrounding areas.

The practice is open 7 days a week to offer patients access to dental treatment when they need it, for both scheduled and urgent care.

Clinicians and patients of the practice enjoy access to the most advanced technologies in the field of dentistry including:

  • Cone Beam Computed Tomography (CBCT) 3D imaging for the purposes of diagnosis or oral and maxillofacial conditions and surgical planning;
  • Intraoral scanners for restorative and orthodontic planning;
  • CAD-CAM software and precision milling units for producing restorations at the chairside;
  • State-of-the-art Straumann dental implant systems;
  • Intravenous sedation;
  • ‘Warm vertical condensation’ endodontic obturation apparatus and bioceramic endodontic materials;
  • Paper-free electronic patient registration and check-in.

This means that our highly skilled team are able to offer a broad range of treatments to meet the precise and personal needs of each and every one of our patients.


Through the years we have sought to ensure that Sharrow Dental benefits the community far beyond those who attend as patients. Mr Clough and his team have strong connections with various organisations, schools and sports clubs including:

  • The International Olympic Committee
  • The British Boxing Federation
  • Essex University
  • The Local Dental Committee
  • The British Dental Association
  • Cedd’s School
  • Chelmsford Hockey Club
  • Chelmsford Rugby Club
  • The International Association of Dental Traumatology
