About us

Torrington Dental Practice was established in 1997 by principal dentist Ian Mills as a single surgery practice offering NHS and private dental care for the population of Great Torrington and the surrounding area.

In 2003 we moved to our current premises in Haldon Terrace to accommodate new patients and partners, and in 2019 the practice underwent major expansion and refurbishment as part of our ongoing commitment to extend access to outstanding dental care across Devon.

Today, our NHS and private patients benefit from access to eight state-of-the-art surgeries, an Oral Health Education Suite, bright and welcoming reception and waiting areas, and enhanced disability access. We are also home to Devon Dental Implant Centre which regularly receives implant and complex dentistry referrals from more than 70 regional practices across Devon and the south-west.

We offer a wide range of services including preventative dentistry, restorative dentistry, aesthetic treatments, and oral hygiene therapy. We also provide a sedation clinic for anxious patients, home visits for those who are unable to attend the practice, and an oral health community outreach programme for local schools and care homes.

Torrington Dental Practice is led by Ian Mills, Zena Brenchley and Rhys Gabe, the partners of the practice, and supported by a skilled team of clinicians, dental nurses, and administrative staff.

We pride ourselves on staying one step ahead by continuing our studies across a wide spectrum of clinical fields.


Mr Mills was kind, pleasant and reassuring, and explained everything to me, so that I knew what was going on every inch of the way. I can’t recommend him and his implant team highly enough.
Super helpful, friendly, clean, efficient and brilliant at informing us of procedures & treatment. We never feel rushed or have to wait too long. They have made the dentist experience a positive one for our children – who are always excited to go!
I would rate this dentist 1000 stars if I could! Everyone there is so friendly and smiley! I had my teeth done by John Cato and Paula and what can I say. Both of them made me feel so relaxed even though I normally hate the dentist they have made this all change! I couldn’t thank them both enough.

It’s nearly two months since my treatment for an implanted bridge concluded and I could not be more pleased. The treatment was excellent, the care by Ian Mills and his team was superb and the teeth look fantastic.
Rhys Gabe is an incredible guy. After 30 odd years of avoiding the dentist through fear I actually now enjoy going thanks to this man. I cannot recommend him highly enough to nervous and anxious patients.
