    "Both my daughter and myself use this dentist, although we have different practitioners. I can honestly say that they go above and beyond what you would expect. On my last appointment my dentist corrected a crack in my tooth that had made me self conscious for many years, I literally smile all the time now. My daughter went today. It was the dentists first day, she was totally professional and so friendly, my daughter was put totally at ease. What a great team. Well done."

    "I am very nervous when it comes to the dentist but the ladies on reception were great and put me at ease as soon as I walked through the door, they were very friendly. The dentist was attentive and understood that I was nervous but went through the treatment plan thoroughly and explained all my options, I attended the practice the following week for my treatment and released there was absolutely nothing to worry about all along. Will definitely be returning here for my regular check ups :)"
