About Us

Grayes Dental Care was established by Richard and Jennifer Graye almost 30 years ago with a mission to provide the highest levels of service and dental care in a friendly, supportive environment.

At Graye’s Dental Care we provide complete dental service, from simple treatments and sound advice through to more complex dentistry. Our practice has grown from humble beginnings in 1991 through the personal recommendations of our patients and we are immensely proud of that fact.
