Wrington Dental Centre is a two-surgery private dental practice situated in the village of Wrington, North Somerset.

The village sits in the beautiful Yeo Valley at northern edge of the Mendips. It is approximately 3 miles South-East of Bristol Airport.

Wrington Dental Centre was established by John O’Brien, and opened in January 1995 at premises on Station Road, Wrington. In August 1998 the practice expanded as a second surgery was opened.

In December 2005 the practice moved to its current premises in Westward Court. The surgeries and decontamination room were replaced and updated in the summer of 2018.
