I had been in a lot of discomfort from a back tooth while on holiday. I found the Clinic Price on a search. I was given an appointment on a Saturday morning. Dr Bettencourt was extremely friendly and very competent. I should be able to judge as I'm a Dentist!! He carried out the necessary treatment very effectively and efficiently. If the toothache is spoiling your holiday, ring Dr Bettencourt!!
