What a super experienceByron, Belize, 17 07 23

What a wonderful experience. Dr. Hartshorne treated my situation with honesty, integrity and compassion. He took the time to write me a personal email relating to the specific matter the appointment was for, taking the time to explain to me, in layman's terms, what we were looking at, and where to from here. He was thorough, and although the situation was severe, he allowed my dignity to remain in tact. What a super experience. By the Dr. and the whole team.

I am beyond pleased with my outcomeChristopher, South Africa, 17 01 24

WOW, Dr Jay personally answered my call when i phoned in over festive period looking for a dentist for some relief. He was busy with an emergency procedure but told me to come on through and he will assist. Not even a month later and a tooth that's given me endless problems and i was referred for surgical removement previously has been removed, painlessly i might add. I have had a root canal and the most functional and beautiful bridge was made and fitted for me. The man's a cross between an artist and a master but oh so humble and reassuring every step of the way. I am beyond pleased with my outcome, the timeframe, the advice and explanations as well as the overall service. Thank you, thank you, thank you.
