    "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"

I was recommended to have some treatment and I was offered an appointment a few hours later and another one for next week on my day off work. The dentist and the hygienist explained everything fully and the assistants were friendly and helpful too. My relations and friends use this surgery and they seem happy with it."

    "I have always found the dentists and nurses very good at making me feel I am being listened to and never pressured, always felt I'd been given the right treatment. I have always hated getting the yearly deep clean as it was not pleasant but this time I think because of my age I was given pain relief ??. I would like to say Thank you for your your service and respect. B Wilson"
