"The dentist is approachable, considerate and clearly likes his profession"
100%Reviewed 15 Nov 2017 Review verified by phone.
Treatment Received: Dentist Consultation
I attended Dove Dental care for a routine checkup.

I have attended this dental clinic for many years. I am always impressed by how warm and engaged the staff on reception are to every person, this experience leaves a lasting impression. The dentist I see is Amit, he is approachable and considerate and clearly likes his profession which makes for a good experience. He is assisted by Lucy who is also calm and caring. I think that the ethos at Dove dental care is centered on giving everyone who receives the service, the best professional care. In this, they have succeeded.

"It was priceless"
100%Reviewed 20 Jun 2017 Review verified by phone and email.
Treatment Received: Dentist Consultation
I just had a tooth filled as an old filling fell out. I am not keen on needles so I was dreading the thought of having a jam for the filling. My dentist is called Margaret and she is very gentle, I was so pleased when she said that she may be able to do the filling without any injection but it was up to me, I agreed to the filling without the injection. I was given a ceramic filling, even with all the drilling I never felt a thing.

Was it good value, to me it was priceless no numb mouth, no injection and no pain.

We joined this clinic about 9 years ago when we moved to Derby, it was the closest NHS to take new customers. Our first impressions were that it is very clean and tidy, they always send you a reminder just before your appointment. The staff on the front desk are polite and friendly and you are seen to quickly.

Miss Lorna McAloon responded to this review:

Dear Gary, Thank you very much for taking the time to leave us such a positive review about your own personal experience with Dove Dental Care. Margaret is very well thought of by all of her patients and staff alike. We aim to treat all of our patients with great care and dignity from the moment they contact us and people often comment on how helpful and friendly our reception team are. There are so many people out there with a genuine fear of the dentist, usually the result of a painful past experience. We hope that other people reading your review will realize that the dentist should not be a painful experience and that we are here to listen, support and help, not hurt. We will pass along your comments to Margaret and the rest of the team. We look forward to seeing you again at your next visit. Best wishes, Dove Dental Care.

"Treatment and all was completely painless"
100%Reviewed 01 Jun 2017 Review verified by email.
Treatment Received: Dentist Consultation
Replacement of an old broken filling found on a routine inspection.

Everything went to plan. The appointment was made to suit me and on the day they were on time. They dentist was very kind and explained the procedure in an easy to understand way. He took his time with the treatment and all was completely painless even though the old filling was quite large. Well recommended.

"I would thoroughly recommend this practice"
100%Reviewed 13 Dec 2016 Verified user. Review confirmed by phone.
Treatment Received: Orthodontic Retainer
I needed a replacement plastic retainer as the one I had when the braces came off 10 years ago finally broke

I was contacted by phone and email following my email request and an appointment made within 24 hours. The retainer was ready within 3 days. The reception team and clinicians were friendly and professional. The building was clean, modern and felt like somewhere you would feel completely safe to be treated in. A very professional, friendly and financially reasonable service. I would thoroughly recommend this practice.

"No one had ever done this with me before"
100%Reviewed 09 Dec 2013 Review verified by email.
Treatment Received: Dental X-Ray, Dental Checkup
Today was my first appointment at Dove Dental Care. I was met with a smile which was reassuring as I am nervous of the dentist. The receptionist introduced me to Karen, the patient care coordinator. She spent time with me discussing any issues I had and completed the paperwork with me. I saw the dentist who gave my teeth a good check up and took X-rays of my teeth and explained what he was looking at. No one had ever done this with me before. Felt like the staff at Dove Dental Care really cared. I don't normally write reviews but felt like this kind of service should be shared with others.

"New patient check plus xray"
100%Reviewed 16 May 2013 Review verified by email.
Treatment Received: New Patient Dental Examination, Dental X-Ray
New patient check plus xray

Dove Care was the first clinic to respond to my enquiry for new patient registration and their prices appeared reasonable compared to others advertised on the Internet so I thought I would give them a try.

The clinic was clean and tidy, it was easy to get an appointment and I was seen almost immediately. Staff were knowledgeable and helpful.

Only downside appears to be no parking but there is no shortage of pay and display nearby. The website makes this clear so I came equipped with a few £1s in change.

I was a new patient having not seen a dentist in some years. There were no expensive surprises and no pushy sales pitches for insurance products or monthly payment plans. In fact no sales pitches at all.

Gets my recommendation.
