At Nicola Taaffe at West Grove, you can be assured – the team is committed to excellence and continuously strives to provide the level of courtesy and comfort for patients that they would expect for themselves. Patient welfare is at the core of the practice, with the highest standard of professionalism and care aimed for at all times.

Nicola achieved her Bachelor of Dental Surgery from Cardiff University in 1988 and moved from her hometown of Bridgend to Cardiff to work in various locations including Morriston, Aberdare, Mountain Ash and Tonypandy.

In 1995, Nicola took over City Road Dental, situated on City Road. Relocating to number 2 West Grove in 2007, since moving to the larger premises, the practice has continued to grow.

Originally just a team of five, they now boast a predominately female team of twelve.

Should you suffer dental trauma or emergency, such as uncontrolled bleeding from the mouth, severe dental pain and facial swelling, emergency appointments are available for registered patients. 

We will try to see you as urgently as possible, although availability can sometimes be limited.

If you are not registered with us but require emergency treatment, please call the
NHS Dental Helpline on 02920 444 500.


Effective communication between our patients and our staff is of vital importance, however, language barriers can cause communication to be compromised. If English is not your first language, we ask that you bring a trusted individual, such as an adult family member or friend, to all of your appointments to translate for you.

If you are not able to do this, 
NHS Wales 111 can provide you with a confidential interpreter. All you need to do is state in English the language you would prefer to use and wait on the line until you are connected to an interpreter. 


We are friendly, caring, professional and efficient - but don't just take our word for it! You can find over 200 Google reviews by clicking the button below. We have no editorial control over these reviews, so you can be assured they are 100% genuine.
