About Us 

We are a small family practice that caters primarily for very nervous people. We provide a professional, caring service in a very relaxed and informal setting. We provide a range of services including dental implants, we also work with carefully selected local specialists to provide specialist services not available from us. 

Old Forge House has been set up as an independent clinic since 2005. Our main aim is to provide the best service we can to those who really do not like going to see their dentist. Our practice is cosy and warm with all the latest gadgets and equipment. We are very much a family dentist doing only the things we can do very well. We work in collaboration with a few carefully selected local surgeries who provide specialist services and clients can always be assured that these people will look after them in the same way we would do if we were to provide the service.

We have made many friends over the years and established a very loyal base of clients and we always manage to have a good laugh during the visit. Many of them are still nervous but they know that they are in good hands and that I will do my best and that I understand how they feel.

Meet The Team 

Your Dentist
Eldridge Cunningham 


Hello and thank you for visiting our site. I graduated from the University of the Western Cape in Cape Town South Africa in 1997. I set up this surgery in 2005 and have made many friends since then.

If you are nervous then I am the dentist you need because I care, I'm gentle and I'm kind. I value the privilege to be a dentist and the trust you place in me.

I promise to do my best at all times, to be friendly at all times and to always greet you with a smile.

Above all, I promise to always have your best interest as my only priority.
