Appletree Dental Surgery was founded 30 years ago and later taken over by Dr Cerise Harriss in 2018 when she wanted to create a family friendly Dental Practice in the heart of Herne Village. Understanding that, for many people, a visit to the dentist can be daunting, Dr Harriss wanted to ensure that the practise would be relaxed and welcoming.

Now, with a strong, highly skilled multidisciplinary team that she has created an award winning Private Dental Practice. Being a cottage, it has a homely and cosy feel, although modern the practice is housed in a charming building, peppered with history, which immediately puts you at ease.


Dr Harriss has invested and grown the team to provide most aspects of dentistry and a range of highly specialised treatments. This ensures that you receive the best person for the treatment that you require. Whether it’s Root Canal Surgery or Cosmetic Dentistry, such as Invisalign to children’s dentistry – there’s an expert here for you. See the full list of treatments available here.

The staff here are excellently trained and all have a real passion for dentistry and customer service and they even won Best Reception Team in the prestigious National Private Dentistry Awards. Keeping up to date with Dentistry and the latest equipment, the team always maintain a high quality service and professional standards.

Uniquely, they’re a membership based practice, the goal to make Private Dentistry accessible and affordable. Their memberships enable you to manage the cost of your routine dental treatment throughout the year by paying by a monthly direct debit.

Your membership gives you access to regular dental check-ups and hygiene appointments, depending on your membership tier. This not only enables you to budget for your dental care, but also increases your likelihood of attending appointments and requiring minimal treatment. See the membership details here.


The team here pride themselves on their reputation and the friendly, calm and relaxing atmosphere. All patients receive a warm welcome and if you’re slightly apprehensive or perhaps very nervous, they’ll make the time to spend with you to truly give you the treatment that you deserve.
