    "I always attend Mydentist at the Westoe Road Surgery and have done since it opened. I couldn't praise the dentists , dental nurses and reception staff enough. If you want to receive 5* dentalcare this is definitely the place to come. I'm disabled and in a wheelchair and cannot walk up or downstairs so the receptionist always makes sure that my appointment is booked in the ground floor surgery. There is nothing the staff cannot do to help to make your visit as pleasant as possible. My dentist Mr Thomas and his dental nurse are a fantastic team; they have a wonderful way of making you feel at ease and in complete control of your treatment. I really like how he explains what the problem is and how he can help to make it better! This is definitely 5* treatment from a 5* Dentistry Team. Thank you to each and everyone of the team. Mrs M L Skelly"
