Welcome to The Old Church Dental Practice

Welcome to the Old Church Dental Practice In Halifax.

Located just 9 miles outside Leeds City Centre, and a mere 3 miles from Halifax, you’ll find the charming Yorkshire village of Lightcliffe, home to this state-of-the-art dental and implant clinic, quite unlike any you’ve visited before.

Our exclusive practice is housed in a Grade I listed church building with beautiful original stone-work, stained glass windows and antique furnishings. Our experienced team take great pride in making you feel relaxed and comfortable, no matter how nervous you may be.

At the Old Church we cater for everyone, with treatments ranging from simple dental examinations, to complex full mouth rehabilitation, using the latest scanning and implant technology. Finance options are also available to make your treatment more affordable.

Why not call us today and see how we can help make you smile?

It’s amazing the difference one day can make!

One of our most sought after treatments is denture stabilisation, or denture replacement, for people wishing to be rid of troublesome, ill-fitting dentures. Doctor Nigel Hargreaves, our resident Implant Surgeon at The Old Church, regularly replaces dentures with full-arch bridges on implants. This is the closest thing to getting your natural teeth back. The procedure can be completed in one day, and you can eat on your new teeth immediately.

Dental Implants

We often hear that having dentures, or missing teeth, means that you struggle to eat certain foods, lack the confidence to smile, or are reluctant to socialise for fear of being judged by the appearance of your teeth.

We can solve many of these issues by restoring your smile using dental implants.
The benefits of dental implants has been proven time and again as the best way of replacing missing teeth, or getting rid of your dentures. Dental implants can be used to replace one missing tooth, or an entire jaw of missing teeth and they will look, feel and behave just like your natural teeth. Implants also work to preserve the natural bone structure and tone of the facial muscles to avoid wrinkling and premature ageing.


No one is born with a perfect smile. However, everyone can benefit from QuickStraightTeeth™, one of the the quickest and gentlest ways to straighten teeth. All you need to achieve a movie star smile, without the movie star price tag.

Our adult braces look beautiful and discreet. ‘Train tracks’ are not the look we go for! The QuickStraightTeeth™ invisible braces system uses only top quality branded clear brackets and tooth coloured wires, making your braces virtually invisible. Most people won’t know you are wearing braces and treatments can take as little as 6 months to complete. With an option to suit everyone, QuickStraightTeeth™ can boost your confidence, raise your self-esteem and give you a winning smile.


We offer a range of cosmetic treatments to include veneers, tooth whitening, cosmetic bonding and the treatment of gummy smiles.

Veneers are extremely versatile, and can be used to quickly disguise a number of imperfections, which is why they are often used for smile makeovers. Tooth whitening is another popular cosmetic treatment. We offer a tooth whitening treatment you can do in the comfort of your own home. Cosmetic bonding can be used in many situations, such as repairing chipped teeth, improving the appearance of discoloured teeth, close gaps or even change the shape of the tooth. Some people feel self-conscious because of the excessive amounts of gum they show when smiling. This is known as a gummy smile and can be treated with gum contouring.


One solution for missing teeth is Cosmetic Dentures. This is a relatively cost-effective solution to the problem of eventual tooth loss and should be considered as a viable option if this problem starts to affect your life. We understand the impact that losing teeth can have on the quality of life and we know it can affect your confidence, alter your facial appearance and interfere with eating.

At The Old Church, we routinely use dental implants to secure loose dentures, and we can even replace your dentures completely with a full mouth of teeth, fixed in place that look, behave and function just like your natural teeth – even you would struggle to know they were not your own teeth! This allows you to regain a beautiful smile and eat whatever you wish.
