Village Dental Practice was established in 1993 by Dr Elizabeth Stringer, and has been providing dental care for families in Knebworth and the surrounding areas ever since.

In 2015 the practice was taken over by Dr Sachin Shah. He hopes to grow the practice by extending the opening hours of the surgery to five days per week, as well as offering a wider range of treatments in the future.

We have a team of long-standing members of staff with a wealth of experience.

The practice is located in the centre of the village on Station Road, just a few minutes walk from Knebworth Railway Station. There is plenty of parking available on Station Road and Pondcroft Road,  just outside the practice.

The practice is at ground floor level and so we are easily accessible.
