Skin and Smiles at Whippendell Dental Clinic

01923 603684 18 Whippendell Road, Watford, WD18 7LU
Rating from 7 Reviews Highly recommendRobert, UK, 01 Aug 13

Full implants After visiting so many clinics for consultations for full implants, including the possibility of flying to Budapest to have all the work done (which they wanted cash), don't advise this! Visiting 2 Harley St clinics, Whippendell Dental Clinic was local and by far the most honest and realistic advise I had had! Dr Murgai was very reassuring and accommodating , I had work over 6 months every evening after my treatment I had a call to check how I was, the sessions were not rushed and overall am very happy , now my wife has decided to have some implants done as she saw how well the whole treatment went, thanks I will highly recommend the clinic for any dental procedures.

Aesthetique Dental Care

0113 320 3159 21 Wharf Street, The Calls, Leeds, LS2 7eq
Rating from 26 Reviews Very good value but mostly an amazing team, amazing results and I now look forward to visitingGail, UK, 04 Nov 16

Having spent many an unhappy time as an nhs patient with constant cancellation of appointments and very poor service I became extremely anxious patient and avoided seeking another dentist. I eventually plucked up the courage knowing full well I needed desperate treatment. After a visit to a cosmetic dentist I became under the impression that they were only interested in their pocket and not you as a person. I had given up hope but came across Aesthetique Dental Care. After further research I took the plunge. My treatment resulted in an implant, veneers, bridges and tooth whitening. Very good value but mostly an amazing team, amazing results and I now look forward to visiting 'friends'. Ferakh and his team are truly the best. I was an extremely nervous and a scared patient but they make you feel so comfortable. His lovely dental nurses have always held my hand when I have been extremely nervous. If anyone considers cosmetic dentistry I would not consider anywhere else. Ferakh and his team have transformed my life. They know you as a person and not a number and I can no longer consider them as my dentist but as friends. I have now confirmed myself as a lifelong member of aesthetique

Rating from 5 Reviews best dental experiences I have ever hadBrigitte, UK, 14 Feb 17

Sore gums and aching tooth on left side - had a miserable sleepless night. I was inflamed and in some pain and did not want anybody to go near me but Dr Leslie managed to inject the affected area without me feeling a thing - was so relieved and impressed. He has a really lovely manner and was one of the best dental experiences I have ever had.

Riverside Dental Spa

Rating from 2 Reviews I will continue my treatment here because I trust them.Sandra, UK, 15 Nov 16

I had my wisdom teeth pulled and have some other problems. I was scared to go to the dentist but based on some other reviews I decided would give this place a try. The people are so kind and caring. My dentist explained what was happening with my teeth and gave me options. She also treated the immediate pain issue which helped so much until the day they would pull the wisdom teeth. The extraction was not painful at all and it was quick. I've also seen the hygienist there for cleaning and she is very gentle and always checking to make sure I was okay. I will continue my treatment here because I trust them. The clinic is very clean. The staff are professional, caring and respective of their patients. Even the receptionist checks on your well being. They made me feel at ease and I would recommend them to anyone.

Dental Solutions

01925 321856 9 Henry Street, Lymm, WA13 0LS
Rating from 18 Reviews Utterly professional and completely pain freeBarbara, UK, 07 Feb 17

I was advised to go to Gavin at Dental Solutions following the loss of bridge work carried out elsewhere several years ago. I needed a four tooth implant and felt very apprehensive. I needn't have worried. The whole procedure was utterly professional and completely pain free. I am delighted with the result and would recommend Gavin and his colleagues to anyone considering implant dental surgery. My dentist recommended Gavin to me although there were other implant dental surgeons nearer to my home. I later discovered that a friend had been to him and couldn't speak highly enough. That convinced me and it was a decision, I am very pleased I made. The staff were extremely friendly and nothing was too much trouble.
