    "Hi, had my dental appointment on friday 28th June 2019 @ 10:45 @ mydentist, Plains... My dentist is Miss Parsons. She is excellent. Very sensitive & gentle with any numbing injections should I need one for any fillings. First of all my area is numbed with a special solution on saturated cotton wool. Then when I have my injection done its gentle & I do not feel a thing. Great - I used to be petrified by the needle!! No longer now. This time had my crown flitted & out within 12min. Excellent. Efficient and sorted. Thank you Miss Parsons."

    "Just a quick summary of how thoroughly impressed I was by the service I received throughout the entire practice. Whether the dentist herself and her nurse I felt very at ease with them and they made my time thoroughly enjoyable. I must admit however the highlight was when I walked into the reception and I felt welcomed from the moment I stepped into the practice thanks to one member of the practice team in particular. A lovely receptionist was very polite, friendly and just an overall delight, must say as someone who works in customer service I really appreciate when someone gives such a great service. I will most defiantly recommend the practice to my friends."

    "This is an excellent dental practice. I was seen quickly, my treatment was explained to me along with any options available to me. A filling between my two front teeth had come out, so it was decided to refill it. I was offered a pain killing injection, but decided to go without it. I had the option to stop the drill if it started to hurt, and then continue again after having an injection. However, In the event, there was no pain, and the treatment was brought to a satisfactory close. My tooth was filled, and it was all finished."
