Treatment was professionally done and with as little hassle as possible

5 50 Dentist Consultation

Staff very welcoming, friendly, and accommodating. Treatment was professionally done and with as little hassle as possible. Smooth radio was the perfect soundtrack! Service is always second to none, would definitely recommend.

His understanding and experience help me to overcome a condition

5 50 Denturist Consultation

I am still undergoing a very complicated teeth reconstruction by Arshad Ali. His understanding and experience help me to overcome a condition that would when not treated lead to paralysis. I was referred to him by a local dentist after the NHS refused treatment because of the pain it was going to involve.

I felt that the precautions were thorough for me and the staff

5 50 Cosmetic Dentist Consultation

Although in difficult circumstances I was impressed at the arrangements at this difficult time. I felt that the precautions were thorough for me and the staff. I was particularly impressed with the procedure for sanitising and handling the payment card machine.

A superb dental practice, I would highly recommend

5 50 Hygienist Session • Paid: £90

I was very pleased with the excellent results following my recent hygiene appointment as I had been neglecting my oral hygiene. The hygiene clinician gave me advice on what oral hygiene products to use and how to use them to achieve effective results myself at home. She was friendly and made me feel at ease and I felt safe within the practice during these uncertain times. A superb dental practice, I would highly recommend.

Made to feel welcome

5 50 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.
