I've visited Dr John Kane at Village Dental practice twice now - in February 2021 as an emergency dental appointment and then just yesterday as another emergency dental appointment. I'm a very nervous patient (despite having had plenty of dental work done over the years as a child to reduce overcrowding, etc) and both the receptionist on the phone at time of booking and arriving at the clinic, as well as the lovely dental nurses on both occasions and of course Dr John Kane, put me more at ease and were all very understanding of how I was feeling.
Dr Kane took the time to explain the checks he was going to do, was very gentle and took his time about completing them and explained the X Ray thoroughly. Granted, I didn't have to have any work done on either occasion (sinus issues causing discomfort and pain in lower fully erupted wisdom tooth), but I know if I have to book a further appointment at any point in the future, it'll be Dr Kane that I'll be returning to.
The chat at the end of the appointment about his own experience as a nervous patient before starting his training, was reassuring and the clinic appearance and smell etc was definitely more updated and comfortable than my childhood memories. I just need to rebook now for a scale and polish and get comfortable with returning to him on a regular basis!! Would definitely recommend Village Dental Clinic, especially for nervous patients that need that extra reassurance!
