Dr Kathryn Charleton is the best dentist I have ever been to. In 46 years visiting numerous dentists, and across various countries, I have never had such a pain-free dentist experience. She numbed my cheek and gum with a local anaesthetic on a cotton wool pad before gently injecting my gum with anaesthetic, and I never even felt the needle go in or anything else for that matter which is highly unusual.
With other dentists, I would feel the needle go in and also the sting when the anaesthetic was injected, which is highly unpleasant to say the least, but with her I felt absolutely nothing. She performed a root canal on a molar with difficult curved canals, which is most people's worst nightmare. However, with Dr Charleton, this was the easiest procedure I have ever had and I can assure anyone who is afraid of dentists (as I usually am), you have absolutely nothing to be anxious about. Her assistant nurse Tara is also a gem. I travelled over 3hrs (round trip) to see Dr Charleton and I am going back again for more treatment, which may give you some indication of what a fantastic dentist she is. The fees are very reasonable, all the staff and receptionists are friendly and very professional.
I would give this practice and Dr Charleton a hundred-star rating if I could, and I am usually very conservative with any praise. So if you are looking for a dentist and practice that really is outstanding, I cannot recommend them highly enough!
