I have just completed implant surgery and once again I cannot fault this practice. TC, the owner and my dentist today, is a highly competent professional, who is a perfectionist and someone who his staff say would trust him with their lives, you can’t get better praise than that. On this occasion, even the initial local anaesthetic was pain free.The receptionists are always very professional, friendly and very competent. I cannot praise this practice enough. Highly recommended.

Very disappointed that no time was given for the lidocaine to work before they tried to pull a tooth. Sure that’s not normal practice, staff really nice, good clean practice.

An excellent dental practice with amazing staff. I can’t say enough good things about the practice. If you’re a new patient try and get Dr Amit Patel, he’s my dentist and what a dentist he is and he’s an amazing person he is too.

After not going to the dentist for over 10 years, having had a bad experience, I was extremely nervous and anxious. All the staff are amazing from the reception ladies through to the dentist, they explained and reassured me about everything they are doing. My treatment is on going through the next month and I have no concerns. Definitely recommend
