    "I was lucky enough to win a competition ran through the practice and I was so pleased with the results. Fraser and his fantastic team were so kind and professional from the start. They really took the time to explain how the whitening treatment would work and what the products were etc. I used Phillips zoom nite wite at home whitening gel and could see results immediately. My teeth were a couple of shades noticeably brighter and stains were successfully removed. I'd definitely recommend this to others if you're after an easy, quick whitening kit to use at home. I even was offered follow up appointments to check how everything had gone. They really went above and beyond. I'd return in future definitely! Thank you again!"

    "My grandson bumped into the stage at School and the impact caused his from teeth to become loose. There was lots of blood and a very very upset little boy and a distressed mum in a panic. I rang the dentist and they said to take him to the practice straight away. He was seen by two dentists who saw him quite quickly and managed to put him at ease. They gave Mum and Dad advice and support and booked Little One in for a follow up appointment to see if the teeth settled or if any treatment would be needed. They had a really good manner and thankfully our little one came away feeling really good about being at the dentist and with an experience we are going to add to his proud cloud at school. Thank you Dean Road Dental Practice."
