    "Dr. Haleema Yakub has given me my smile back. After years of being terrified of going to the dentist due to past experiences (not here) and my teeth crumbling and falling out due to medications I now have had all teeth removed and dentures fitted. Haleema is fantastic, I trusted her straight away which is unusual for me and explained all the treatments and procedures I needed in such a calm, polite way. Not once did I feel she was rushing the appointment. I just cannot thank her enough for what she has done for me I just wish I had plucked up the courage to go here years ago. As for the rest of the staff, polite and friendly, absolutely no negatives. Thank you team and keep up the good work xx Rowan Monk xx"

    "I am truly truly the happiest customer ever! That is because it is all thanks to the amazing hygienist! I have had a fear of the dentist ever since I was a teenager and I've never looked back to going but due to the condition of my teeth I had no option but to visit the dentist. I was very nervous and scared but as soon as I saw the hygienist she made me feel so easy and calm. I told her about me being scared. She was so lovely she treated me gently and was amazing! She has a constant beautiful smile on her face and is brilliant at her job. Not only did she get rid of my phobia but also completely blew me away with the outcome of the treatment!! I soo recommend her! 5/5 stars!!"

    "Needed to have a tooth out. I have a serious neck problem so was pretty concerned about aggravating that. Needn't have been. The practice is very friendly with a relaxed atmosphere and I was soon put at ease. The dentist kept me fully informed from the moment I went in. X ray then injection, keeping me informed are every step. Then the tooth was out with no problems. Lots of information on aftercare and where to get out of hours help should i need it. Highly recommended. ."

    "Very pleased with my visit. Very efficient, I was provided with an excellent service from both the dentist and nurse. Sabah (I think I recall her name) explained everything very clear and I was aware of what treatment and what the exact cost of my treatment was. Not many nurses do that as previously I have been seen there and none of them have done that before. Also very friendly and always smiling. Very very pleased. Being explained things makes your visit 100x simpler."
