Octagonal glazed dome behind doorcase. Projecting wings have 24-pane floor-length sashes and flanking walls have brick piers but original urns were missing at time of survey. Waiting room to right hand side has canted bay. Later C20 flat-roofed extension to rear. L-shaped extension to north in matching style is not of special interest as it is not shown in the original plans and was added probably in mid C20. Purpose-built dental practices of this date are thought to be rare and this is the only example Baillie Scott designed. O Kornwolf "M H Baillie Scott and the Arts and Crafts Movement" 1972 p555.
