A PRIVATE Practice in the heart of Carmarthen Town worked tirelessly alongside the Governing Bodies the Health Inspectorate Wales to enable their opening on the 16th August 2021.
The start of building work, to their opening lasted ten months; which is some achievement. Until their opening of the new practice, they were able to see patients at their sister practice, the West Wales Dental Implant Clinic, where full treatment was able to be carried out.
They are a purpose-built practice with two surgeries. The building is light and airy and has all the latest equipment available. There is disabled access to the building, as well as the possibility of parking for patients attending the practice. Currently, the car park is incomplete and still requires construction.
Dr Oliver Badham who hails from Pembroke is their general dentist who has 15 years of dental experience. He is supported by their registered nurse Svetlana Williams, and trainee nurse Catrin James. The reception is covered by experienced receptionist Pam Jones.
Both the Carmarthen Dental Centre and the West Wales Dental Implant Clinic are managed by Erica Day who is also a fully qualified dental nurse as well as being the registered Practice Manager.
Appointments are available immediately for new patients to register and start any treatment needed.
They offer a number of ways to manage the payments for treatment. You are able to pay-as-you-go, or go through a Practice Plan, whereby a monthly fee can be paid which can offer a discount or cover a majority of costs depending on what plan you choose, with guidance from the dentist.

Carmarthenshire welcomes return of National Urdd Eisteddfod
CARMARTHENSHIRE COUNTY COUNCIL welcomes the National Urdd Eisteddfod next year.
Llandovery has been chosen to stage the 2023 event which celebrates the Welsh language and the culture of Wales.
The Eisteddfod first visited Carmarthenshire in 1935 when the Eisteddfod was held in Carmarthen and the most recent visits include Eisteddfod Sir Gar in 2007 and Eisteddfod Cwm Gwendraeth in 1989.
Thousands of people are expected to turn out for the week-long festival which will be held from May 31 – June 4 next year.
It will be the eighth time the festival has been hosted in Carmarthenshire.
The Urdd National Eisteddfod is one of Europe’s largest youth touring festivals that attracts around 90,000 visitors each year and is held in a different location each year.
It is a competitive festival with over 15,000 children and young people under the age of 25 competing during the Eisteddfod week in various competitions such as singing, dancing and performing. They are the elite few from around 40,000 competitors across Wales who have won their place following local and regional rounds held in the spring months leading up to the Eisteddfod.
Carmarthenshire County Council’s Deputy Leader, Cllr Linda Evans said the event would be an opportunity for people to sample the very best that Wales can offer.
She said: “We are delighted to have been chosen to host this event once again in Carmarthenshire. This event will have huge benefits for the local economy and at the same time will give everyone in Carmarthenshire the chance to experience true Welsh culture whether the visitor speaks the language or not. Hosting this event will also contribute to the vision of our ambitious Welsh Language Strategy and ensure it is heard, spoken and celebrated.”
This year’s festival is currently underway at Denbighshire until Friday June 3.
Carmarthenshire County Council Leader, Cllr Darren Price, said: “We are looking forward to welcoming the National Urdd Eisteddfod here to Carmarthenshire once again. It is the one of Wales’ largest cultural events and a great opportunity to celebrate our commitment to Welsh arts and culture. Not only does it showcase some of the best Welsh talent in music, poetry and dance but it brings huge economic benefits, prestige and publicity.”
The Gallery Yr Oriel presents new body of work by Clare Rose
THIS outstanding new body of work by Clare, is one of her hugely inspiring collections of some 30 years of intermittent painting and study-painting experiences.
Originally a self taught painter, Clare gained a first and distinction in BA and MA Fine Art degrees at Aberystwyth University, where she taught for many years.
The rhythms of the Pembrokeshire seasons, its landscape and coastline, and in particular the arrival of Spring are the inspiration for many of the paintings, sketching ‘en plein air’ whenever possible, then developing the paintings in the studio.
Many of these paintings explore abstract approaches that reflect a deeper, and more ‘felt’ personal experience, and are an invitation to the viewer to share and creatively reinterpret these sensations.
This exhibition is a must see, no pre-booking required, we would love to see you at the launch on Friday 8th April from 5 – 7pm for refreshments, and the show will be running for three weeks.
Paper catalogues are available, and the e-catalogue is available on the website www.thegallery-yroriel/whatson/
We are open Monday to Saturday 10am – 5pm, we look forward to seeing you.
