Broadway Dental Surgery, is a family dental practice, established over 50 years ago in Woodhall spa.
Smile............you're in good hands At Broadway dental surgery, because from the moment you step through our door to the moment you leave, you should expect nothing less than the highest standard of care from our friendly and welcoming team.
We make it our mission to ensure every patient has a relaxed, calm and positive experience at our practice. We offer a warm welcome to all patients even before they step through the door. When you call to make your appointment, our friendly reception team will help arrange a suitable appointment time and deal with any queries.
When you arrive, you’ll be greeted by pleasant, compassionate staff and an environment that’s calm and relaxing.
You will be given a medical questionnaire to fill out, have an opportunity to amend personal details on your file. You will be examined by one of our dentists, which may include digital x-rays, along with questions about your lifestyle, general health and oral hygiene habits. If a dental problem is identified, this will be discussed fully.
If you require further treatment, a plan will be drawn up that details clearly everything you can expect from our service, and the costs involved. You will have as much time as you need to ask questions and consider your options – including private, Denplan options. You will also be advised of the aftercare you can expect, and if you will need to take any time off to recover from treatment. Once you have confirmed you’re happy with your treatment plan, treatment can proceed – in some instances during the same appointment, more so if the dentist needs to eliminate pain. In other cases, you will be invited to return for a future appointment at a convenient time.

Andrew James Towlerton
Andrew was born in 1969, in Newark, Nottinghamshire. Having inherited a talent for medicine from his father and the artistic flare of his mother, a career in Dentistry beckoned. His graduation from Birmingham Dental School in 1991, was followed by 2 years of General Practice in Nottinghamshire.
A desire for adventure and broader horizons was fulfilled in 1993 as Andrew joined the Royal Air Force Dental Branch. He was rewarded with postings to Germany, the Falkland Islands, and even Norfolk! In 2002 after 9 years service, Squadron Leader Towlerton returned to civilian life, “with more than enough stories to bore the socks off anyone who showed a passing interest”.
Having honed his skills in an environment of clinical excellence, Andrew is proud to maintain those high standards in civilian general practice. However, he hasn’t been resting on his laurels since leaving the RAF. Whilst working in private practice, he has completed the Diploma in Restorative Dental Practice, at the Eastman Dental Institute in London, alongside his initial training in dental implant at Sheffield Dental Hospital in 2008. Due to his training in sports dentistry, he was selected to be one of the chosen few to attend the London 2012 Olympics, providing emergency trauma cover at the Basketball arena. Andrew been placing dental implants since 2008 and more recently has spent the last two years updating his knowledge and skill set at the Royal College of Surgeons on the FGDP implant Diploma program.
Andrew is very pleased to be spending time in Woodhall Spa, not just because of it’s historic connections to the RAF, but because this is where he got married to his wife Jemma.
