Birchfield Dental Practice

Rating from 1 Review They understood how I felt and were absolutely superb with meSusan, UK, 22 Dec 16

I am petrified of the dentist and needed a tooth out, I searched the internet and this clinic was the only clinic that could see me straight away. It took me three months to pluck up the courage to ring to make an appointment. I arrived at the clinic and went straight into the room, I just pointed at the tooth I needed removing, the clinic took it out straight away. There was no chit chat, I was in and out. They understood how I felt and were absolutely superb with me. If you have a fear of dentists and are looking fr somewhere to come where they understand your situation, here is the place.
