from 1 verified review Patient Reviews of Lightwood Dental Care

5 50Reviewed 13 May 2016 Review verified by phone and email.
Treatment Received: Teeth Cleaning,Dental Crowns,Fillings
The great appeal of this clinic is the - near-obsession - with preventative dental treatment. Enormous attention given to promoting oral hygiene and so lessening the danger of problems. It works: I am in my seventies, have been attending the clinic for over 20 years and have very few fillings and have had no extractions. When there is a problem - a tooth needed crowing - it was done quickly with minimum discomfort. (Dr Cowan is a competent, likeable techie who has excellent state-of-the-art kit). Not cheap, but you get what you pay for.

My wife was recommended by a friend shortly after Dr. Cowan opened up in Buxton. She was nervous but found him friendly with an excellent "bedside manner." Above all she described him as someone who would look totally at home, "using a Black & Decker" - This isn't an insult! - Dentistry requires manipulative, dexterity skills and he has this in full measure.

Treatment Received: Dental Implants,Dentures,Dental Checkup
Were you pleased with the treatment? I am ashamed to say that my last visit to a dentist was in 1979. My wife has been a patient for years and she persuaded me to viisit Lightwood dental care, I was nervous, no terrified, but I found the staff excellent and very understanding, I had implants and dentures as well as a thorough dental check up and treatment, I am now having regular dental check ups and feel much better for it.
Would you recommend the clinic? Thoroughly
Would you return for further treatment? Yes and do so as and when necessary
