Rating from 10 Reviews Extremely professional during Dentist ConsultationAkshay, UK, 01 Sep 16

Had a problem with few of my teeth- acute onset. Got an appointment within 48 hours. Had a thorough consultation done by Dr Ketan Shah and all treatment options explained in details. Follow up appointment arranged and treatment completed in 2 sittings. Magic wand treatment for the anaesthesia worked a treat. Extremely professional. Very kind and helpful nursing and reception staff. The reminder service really was useful to ensure I did not forget appointment(which I usually an good at!)

Rating from 26 Reviews they want to do the right thing for you not their profit marginDiane, UK, 16 Apr 16

I wanted dental bonding as I used to grind my teeth, I didn't get the treatment I wanted because the dentist couldn't guarantee the work, he knew I was willing to take the risk and I had the cash to pay straight away, but he wouldn't take it. That's a level of integrity I didn't expect, he could have taken £1500 off me in a second, I want a nice smile so badly but he knew it wasn't right for me. I went away upset but pleased with the service, they are great, they want to do the right thing for you not their profit margin, I may not have got the smile I wanted but they were caring, professional and were not willing to take my money when they knew it wasn't right for me.
