A brand-new independent Epsom dentist marked its official opening with a night of laughter, when comedian Tim Vine visited to cut the ribbon.

The comedian, originally from Cheam, described family-run Alan Wilson Dentistry as the finest thing to come to Epsom since “the one-way system”.

He began his routine by bursting through the doors of the practice, at 55 High Street, brandishing a giant toothbrush – manufactured from garden equipment, as well as a giant set of novelty teeth.

Recently opened, Alan Wilson Dentistry offers a range of dental treatments with multiple visiting specialists who are experts in their own specific field of dentistry.

The aim is that all your dental treatment can be carried out under one roof rather than having to be referred out to different practices.

Alongside general dentistry, they offer implants, teeth whitening, endodontics, children’s dentistry, hygiene services and cosmetic dentistry.

But the Wilsons hope to expand their business in the near-future to include a full range of orthodontics and facial aesthetics services.
