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.
