From the moment I entered, to the moment I left, everything was smoothCarole, South Africa, 18 06 18

I visited this dentist after my front tooth had broken off. By the time of my appointment, my teeth were in quite a bad shape due to grinding and the dentist provided me with information on what to do. He made a clip that could fit over my teeth (both upper and lower). This felt like the best clinic to help me with my problem. I didn’t need any aftercare, but I will be going back to them for further treatment as soon as I’m ready. From the moment I entered, to the moment I left, everything was smooth. They made good on their promises and delivered superb service. There’s nothing I can fault them on and I’ll definitely be using them in the future. As soon as I have the money, I’ll be getting some implants done. I’m very happy with the clip - I feel it was an investment. I’ve always had a fear of the dentist, but I trust them completely. Dr. Khan was fantastic. I’ll go back for drilling, fillings and full implants. I have faith in these people.

I’m very happy with the work they doLeann, South Africa, 29 08 18

Big Red Tooth Dental has been my family dentist for around 7 years now. I’ve had root canals, fillings as well as cleanings done at this clinic. There’s nothing pleasant about a visit to the dentist, but they are quite good. I’ve been recommending them to others. I’m very happy with the work they do. Not sure what my emergency dentist appointment cost, because the medical aid covered everything. Even though they are good, I don’t give anyone a 5/5. There’s always room for improvement.
