    "From the minute we walked into the door we had nothing but fantastic service. After my daughter cracked four front teeth in a accident last night, we popped in on the off chance that they could take a look and advise on the treatment needed. 4 and a half hours later my daughter has 4 brand new looking front teeth, and can go on her holidays tonight with a beaming smile. Thank you so much to the lovely, kind and sympathetic receptionists who were totally wonderful with her as she'd never had any dental treatment before today, she was a little anxious, and to the guys that did the check up and work, I cannot sing your praises highly enough."
