Southfield Dental Practice opened in 2016 and is a private practice based on the southern side of Ringwood.

The practice was set up by dentist couple Christian and Caroline Gollings, who both have over 20 years of dental experience.


We offer a full range of dental treatments for adults and children. Our staff are experienced and dedicated to giving clients attention to detail in all aspects of the clinical and administrative departments.


We carry out dentistry in a relaxed environment and ensure our patients get the most from our time which we dedicate to achieving high quality dentistry.

We believe in preserving teeth for as long as possible and suitable, and offer treatment options which are less invasive but more predictable.

We also believe in empathetic dentistry, where we assess your individual situation and offer the treatment that is applicable.


Mr Christian Gollings is experienced in more advanced dentistry and has a special interest in Implant Dentistry. He offers dental options for replacement of missing teeth to include crowns, bridges, dentures and implants.

Mrs Caroline Gollings offers treatments for tooth whitening and white fillings. She also provides routine dentistry to include children’s dentistry, cosmetics and also the treatment of more nervous patients.

New Patients

We do everything possible to make your appointments as pleasant as possible. After booking your initial visit we will normally send you either an email, text or call to remind you of your appointment. We ask you to complete a new patient questionnaire which includes medical details. It is helpful if you arrive 10-15 minutes before your first visit to have time to fill this in.
