About Us

Established, training and remaining current - our practices promise.

There has been a dental practice at 12 Ripon Road for over half a century, so we have a long history of providing quality dental care to the people of Harrogate and surrounding areas. Richard Frost took over the practice in 2000, welcoming Nick Ranns as an associate in 2005. Nick became a joint partner of the practice in 2012.


Experience and Expertise

Richard and Nick are both highly skilled, competent clinicians with years of experience behind them in both the NHS and Private sectors. They both have a passion for providing an excellent level of service throughout the patient journey.

Lifelong Learning

They are both committed to ‘lifelong’ learning and continually update their knowledge and skills on professional courses. This enables them to provide you with treatment using the most recent knowledge, skills and materials.

Both Richard and Nick regularly undertake ‘continual professional development’ to keep up to date, in line with the General Dental Council’s regulations. They both have membership by examination to the Faculty of General Dental Practice, Royal College of Surgeons of England.

Our Philosophy

Four key areas underpin our treatment philosophy at RF Dental Care. They make sure we provide you with quality dental care at all times in a safe and positive environment. They are;

• High standards in our care
• Prevention of disease
• Uncompromising safety
• Positive experience

We want you to leave the surgery feeling confident that you’ve made the right choice in coming to RF Dental Care and you can trust us with the dental care of you and your family.
