"Made to feel welcome"
5 50Reviewed 07 Jul 2017 Verified user. Review confirmed by email.
Treatment Received: Dentist Consultation
Very professional from the moment I entered the building. Made to feel welcome. The staff was helpful and polite. Felt reassured during and after consultation.

It was 1st class. I have three more appointments which I am happy with. Mr Ali explained my treatment that I have yet to receive during my consultant. I would recommend this clinic to be the best.
