About Us

Tovey Little Dental Centre was originally based on Bond Street, Wakefield, for over 25 years. The practice relocated to the new premises, on Borough Road, Wakefield, in January 2010 and was officially opened on Friday 5th March 2010 by Mary Creagh MP for Wakefield.


The practice is situated in the centre of Wakefield and is within walking distance of the bus station. There are also car parking facilities in the pay and display carpark, which surrounds the practice. The practice is owned by

Mr Peter Little and Mr Colin Tovey. 


We have seven Associate Dentists and two Foundation Dentists, complimented by three Hygienists, a Hygiene Therapist, a Practice Manager, and a dedicated team of Dental Nurses and Receptionists. 

We offer both NHS and private treatments within the practice.
