    "I cannot praise this dentist enough! I have been in agony with my tooth for the last week and had been seen by dental line. The pain returned today and I couldn’t cope! I spoke to a lovely lady on reception who told me to come down at 2.30pm...10 minutes later and I’m stood in reception a crying wreck with my baby in my arms...I don’t know how or what they did but I was seen and treated within 10 minutes! I cannot thank or praise the receptionist, the dentist Mr.Adrian Lesnyak or the lady who looked after my baby for me so I could have my tooth removed! Thank you so much! Highly recommend! I am also a very nervous and anxious patient and moved dentists due to a horrific past experience; I was made to feel completely at ease today and had all aspects of the treatment explained to me. I received adequate aftercare including leaflets and gauze for my tooth. Again; THANK YOU!! you have no idea how much I appreciated your help and understanding today and I am so grateful to you all for allowing me to be seen x"

The result is amazing and they take care of you so well. I'm a very anxious patient and I felt at ease the whole way through. Thank you!"
