Welcome to Carl Godfrey & Associates. We are a family practice based in the North Nottinghamshire market town of Retford.

We aim to offer the best possible standard of dentistry, to look after you as an individual and help you achieve a healthy mouth and confident smile.

We understand that choosing a new dentist can be a big decision. We are delighted to say that very many of our patients come to us by way of personal recommendation from their friends or family.

Regular Dental Care

Once we are happy that you have reached a good level of dental health, we encourage you to visit us regularly for dental examinations and advice. We believe the key to keeping your teeth for life is to give you the skills and knowledge for good dental care at home.

Your dental visit will often involve seeing one of our Hygiene Therapists dedicated to looking after your long term dental health. We aim to prevent any problems and maintain your teeth to the highest standards. Because we work as a team, you will have access to the skills of all our Dental Professionals depending on what is appropriate to your individual needs.


If you need to reschedule an appointment please give us at least 24 hours’ notice. This helps us run the appointment diary as efficiently as possible so that we can keep waiting times to a minimum. Failure to cancel without adequate notice may result in a charge or losing your NHS place.

For your convenience we operate a text reminder system for appointments. Please make sure we have your mobile phone number if you would like to receive these reminders.
