“I had a great check up with Neal today, it had been a long time, and he knows I am a nervous patient. I felt at ease straight away and he has given me a plan on my dental care going forward, easy to follow without being told off! I look forward to regular check-ups going forward and the other staff were very helpful and happy. Thank you so much!”

Neil is a fantastic dentist and has treated me for many years. I always leave with a smile after any treatment he has given me. Please keep up the good work!! Five Star Rating!!”
For those needing some additional support, we recommend relaxation techniques to help ease dental anxiety. Deep breathing exercises, guided imagery and mindfulness practices can be very effective tools in promoting calmness and relaxation before and during your appointment. Our team is happy to work with you to find the technique that suits you best!
“Raj and the team have been amazing. Managed to get me over my deep fears of seeing a dentist which had been with me for 48 years. I had been in terrible pain for years and no dentist would even take me on. I was scared to smile because of revealing broken off teeth and their colours. Less than 4 months later I can smile with confidence showing beautiful white teeth. Thank you so much!”
