I have never had such efficient and high-quality dental care

5 50 Root Canals, Zirconia Crown

I had an upper premolar repaired with what I understand is a Zirconium Porcelain crown. This involved root canal work which was totally painless (after the initial injection). The crown itself is totally perfect; indistinguishable from a natural tooth in every aspect.

I also had a filling replaced that had been done by a previous dentist. I'd never been happy with this filling before. It always felt rough and unfinished - but Dr Lesti is a perfectionist and after replacing the filling he refinished it so carefully that you can't tell it's there.

I went privately, so I won't pretend it's not costly, but I wanted the best and I think it was worth it.

I've been a bit phobic of dentists and have tended to avoid dental visits because I've had some bad experiences. I did a lot of research before choosing this clinic, I think that paid off because I have never had such efficient and high-quality dental care.

There aren't enough superlatives to describe how I feel about this clinic and I'm delighted to have finally found one that I can trust. I'm going back soon to have another filling replaced.

Before I agreed to anything, she made sure I was fully aware of what the procedure would entail

5 50 Lingual Braces

A friend of mine recommended this dental practice, so I chose them for my lingual braces. I’ve already had the braces fitted and it was worth the price. I actually ended up paying less here than I would have at my regular dentist. There were no additional costs after we agreed on the final package.

Cathedral Dental was very good. The facilities were clean and well-run. My dentist was also really nice and she explained it all. Before I agreed to anything, she made sure I was fully aware of what the procedure would entail (which was reassuring). I still go back for follow-ups these days, and everything’s going well.

Dear Rebecca, Thank you for your kind review. We're happy to hear that you are pleased with the service you received at Cathedral Dental Clinic. We look forward to seeing you again soon.

My tooth was carefully repaired by the nice dentist

5 50 Fillings

One of my old fillings had fallen off and the dentist here was kind enough to schedule an appointment on the same day. He carefully checked my teeth and then squeezed me in for a slot that suited my busy day. The price I paid was not exactly what I found online, but this is because he found some other problems that needed fixing. I think the dentist did fillings for another tooth as well. So I didn’t pay the cost displayed on the website, but this is not because they changed the prices, but rather because I had a slightly different treatment when I arrived.

I felt very comfortable during my visit. The toilets were clean and the people who greeted me at the reception were rather friendly. My tooth was carefully repaired by the nice dentist. I didn’t need any follow-up visits and experienced no negative effects afterward.

Thank you very much for your review. We are are pleased to hear you enjoyed your first visit to the clinic and we look forward to welcoming you back again. Thank you again from all at Cathedral Dental Clinic.

Efficient and clearly explained treatment

5 50 Wisdom Tooth Extraction

I had booked an appointment at Cathedral Dental Clinic after waiting months to have my wisdom tooth removed on the NHS and with increasing pain in the tooth. Dr. Lesti was able to see me within a few days and after the initial appointment, I returned the next day to have my tooth removed. Everything was explained clearly and the extraction only took a few minutes. I recommend the clinic for efficient and clearly explained treatment!

The clinic is welcoming and professional. Waiting time for appointments is days (rather than weeks as I have experienced in the past). I have had three appointments so far and each has been on time. Dr. Lesti clearly explained every stage of the treatment I required and set out a plan for future treatment that I can book when it suits me. I will be moving the whole family over to this clinic!

The dentist was professional and informative

4 50 Dentist Consultation, Panoramic Dental X-Ray • Paid: £80

My first visit to discuss the possibility of flexible dentures. My allocated dentist Dr. Lesti was thorough, professional and informative. I will be going ahead with the suggested treatment plan. The price I quoted is for the consultation and panoramic X-ray that is part of my treatment plan cost.

it is a pleasure being a client

5 50 Extractions, Dentures, Hygienist Session

I am a teeth grinder , even in daytime. It had got to the point (I had split a tooth vertically at one time ) that I had lost most of the teeth on my left side and had a very loose tooth awaiting extraction – I was nervous( I have a small mouth opening – it can be painful to have treatment for me if I have to keep my mouth open for a long time and difficult for the dentist to gain access )
Dr Lesti is wonderful – He explained every procedure, gave me several options ( my choice with no judgement) and ALWAYS checked/made sure I had a signal if I found a procedure painful( I didn’t) or difficult( again he took his time with breaks inbetween) I had an extraction and subsequently had a partial denture .I cannot tell you how happy I am with the result – I feel normal( I dont mean to sound dramatic but it has made me more confident in smiling , helped me eat better – I dont bite my cheek )Thank you so much xxx
Also I have attended for Dental Hygiene and all other Hygienist seem to rush and do the minimum but Samantha was fab – she took her time and I felt at the end that she had really made a difference Thank you xxx The reception and Assistance staff were all so friendly and reassuring – it is a pleasure being a client xxxxThank you all

Would recommend them

5 50 New Patient Dental Examination, Teeth Whitening, Dental Bonding • Paid: £1150

New patient check up, provision of upper false teeth, teeth whitening and cosmetic bonding done on bottom teeth

Absolutely brilliant dental practice. We agreed a plan and price which was later changed at my request to include extra work.

Staff are superb with nervous patients of which I am one and nothing is too much trouble. Their attitude to the customer is first class and the dental work similarly first class. Would recommend them to anybody looking for a dentist especially if you are nervous.

Definitely the best dentist I have ever

5 50 Restorative Dentist Consultation • Paid: £3000

Restorative work

Sadly, I have to confess I had neglected my teeth for five years and they were in a very bad state. I'm a very, very nervous dental patient having suffered at the hands of my family dentist in the 60's and 70's, but eventually I was in such discomfort, I could put off a visit no longer.

This practice is incredibly professional, they answered my initial email almost instantly and I was immediately reassured the minute I met Dr Kolahi. She was not critical or judgemental of my appalling dental care, and has worked out a programme of treatment for me which suits me. I've had two appointments now - today I had a wisdom tooth extracted, a crown fitted and a filling, and it was all fine. She listens to you and stops if you want.
Definitely the best dentist I have ever been to.

Excellent

4.6 50 Wisdom Tooth Extraction • Paid: £235

Wisdom Tooth Extraction and 3 hygienist sessions

The price paid was quoted. The service was excellent, they diagnosed the problem, the dentist and hygienist were both very professional and explained clearly throughout the process what was needed and what the x-ray results revealed as well as the options available.

Excellent

5 50 Cosmetic Dentist Consultation • Paid: £3000

Various remedial & cosmetic

Having recently completed a course of treatment at Cathedral Dental Clinic, I wanted to take a few moments to write a recommendation for them. I first attended the clinic to commence my treatment some 18mths ago, like many I summise having developed a general reluctance towards dentists as a result of previous experiences many years back. I found the staff there most courteous & helpful from the outset. The prices are reasonable, patient care is genuinely second to none, there's no waiting around, the atmosphere is calming, attention to detail considerable, and time is taken to consult with you in order to both explain the need for treatment & the various options available. Myself, my wife & children have relocated since commencing our treatment plans with the guys at Cathedral Dental Clinic, and now travel a considerable distance to ensure we experience after-care there also. The dentist (Vida) who helped me was exceptional. A first class service at reasonable prices for sure. I have no hesitation in recommending their service to anyone who appreciates being taken care of. Excellent stuff guys.
