So far I can only praise Dr Hartshorne for his work so far. This is a journey for me. I have been treated by him for about 8 months for 3 dental implants and the experience so far is great. I know this is expensive, however, I have trust in Dr Hartshorne ability and work. Happy with service so far.

I am very touched by her/their kindness and the dental work is excellentNicole, South Africa, 09 08 21

Amazing staff. I went in with badly damaged/ broken teeth, from ongoing stress and grinding, and on a really tight budget. I was also pretty traumatised after a difficult life challenge and the staff were were gentle, kind, supportive and helpful. Dr Parker also gave me a discount and squeezed an additional bit of work on a broken front tooth, which was causing me some embarrassment, because in her words, "She wanted me to feel better." I am very touched by her/their kindness and the dental work is excellent! Thank you to all at Kromboom Dental Center.
