What our patients say

  • Google 5 out of 5

    "After losing my confidence and smile regarding my front teeth and failed work from my previous dentist i (by chance) made a appointment to see Johnathan at this practice, he was friendly, honest and positive. Johnathan gave me the confidence to change the way I cleaned my teeth and gums ready to prepare my treatment. I now have a beautiful smile and perfect crowns on my front teeth, I can’t thank Johnathan and his fantastic assistant enough, I truly believe that perfection is as important to him as it was to me."

    "HIGHLY RECOMMEND! I attended my appointment with Jonathan and his assistant Katie after a nightmare toothache whilst on holiday, due to this experience I was very apprehensive but straight away I was put at ease. They got me out of pain immediately and explained everything they were doing really well. I felt so relaxed the full time and the treatment was completely pain free. They got me back in really quickly to finish the rest of the treatment and I have gone from being terrified of the dentist to actually looking forward to future appointments!"

I’ve just finished treatment with Johnathan and I honestly can’t thank him enough, he just been so nice and he’s just a perfectionist and really cared that I was happy with the results. My teeth have turned amazing and so much better than I could ever have imagined.
