About Briercliffe Road Dental Practice Burnley

Briercliffe Road Dental Practice in Burnley, Lancashire has been established since 1996. We are a very friendly private dental practice, our dentist Mike Powell qualified at Guys Hospital in London in 1983 and has kept up to date since then with courses in the UK, Hong Kong and the USA in both general and cosmetic dentistry. He has also completed an MSc in Dental Implantology. Having just the one dentist means we can quickly build up a rapport with our clients and you are assured of always seeing the same dentist each visit. Mike is supported by a dedicated team of staff including a Hygiene Therapist who are here to look after you. We understand that some people are very nervous about dental visits,  Mike and his team work together to help nervous patients through their treatment gaining great satisfaction from doing so.

We understand that money is maybe tighter for everyone in this economic climate so we ensure that whatever treatment is proposed is explained very carefully, all the different options are offered and various payment options are provided. Please be careful shopping around on price as this often reflects the quality of the materials used and expertise of laboratory technicians. Cheap dental treatment is not good and doesn't last, good dentistry isn't cheap but we can promise that it will last a long time and look great. We are by no means the most expensive dental practice but can assure you that we use only the best materials and a top class dental laboratory.

We offer a Free Dental Consultation where you can get the chance to come and meet us and have a look around. We can discuss your requirements and you can read reviews from some of our existing clients as well as look at lots of before and after pictures if you would like to.

The services we provide are: Cosmetic Dentistry including veneers, crowns, bridges; Dental Implants; Invisalign invisible braces; FastBraces, Teeth Whitening and white fillings as well as caring for all your routine dentistry

"Made every step of the way enjoyable"
Clinic's favourite review
100%Reviewed 04 Mar 2015 Review verified by email.
Treatment Received: Invisalign™
I would highly recommend Mike and his team if you are thinking of invisalign. In the twelve months of treatment I received Mike has put me at ease and made every step of the way enjoyable. Before stepping foot in the practice twelve months ago I was terrified of going to the dentist. Now I enjoy going and I haven't once felt anxious or panicked like I have at other dentists. I wish I had found them years ago!

"I know i am in good hands when i go in"
100%Reviewed 04 Jul 2016 Review verified by email.
Treatment Received: Dentist Consultation, Hygienist Session, Invisalign™
I went in to Briercliffe Road Dental Practice in Burnley to enquire about invisalign. I had the initial check up where everything was explained to me and then referred to their hygienist as my previous dentists had never suggested that I see one. There were some issues like acid wear and my gums were in bad health which were all explained to me and i was given all the advice i needed from measuring me for inter-dental brushes and how to clean my teeth properly. I now have invisalign braces as my teeth and gums are much more healthy; overall, I believe the services they offer are very much worth the money i pay.

The staff are wonderful and always make me feel at home. They are so lovely i actually look forward to going to the dentists and appreciate things being explained to me. e.g. any problems with my teeth or what they are going to do next from scaling to polishing. They always have a smile on their face and i know i am in good hands when i go in :)

Treatment Received: Dental Bonding
Had half a front tooth replaced much faster than I could have expected elsewhere, it's extremely difficult to tell where the original tooth ends and replacement beings. Excellent work in my opinion.

Excellent and professional service delivered very quickly, highly recommended.

Treatment Received: Extractions
WOW, Well what can you say. Mike really knows his stuff and his vast knowledge puts you at ease everytime regarding any treatment you need. I had not been to the dentist for over four years ( I know slap wrist) and needed some dental work doing including an extraction. The whole process from entering the building with a great smile from friendly reception teams, to the actual process which was explained to me all the way through.

We certainly need more dentists like Mike, a true professional in his field!!!! thanks so much

"I would recommend"
100%Reviewed 02 Jun 2014 Review verified by phone and email.
Treatment Received: White Filling
I wish we'd known about Briercliffe years ago. The staff have shown so much kindness & professionalism towards my very lively son & I feel confident that they will give him the dental care he deserves, which previous private & nhs dentists have failed to. However, the icing on the cake was the filling I had today using the 'wand' anaesthetic. Completely & utterly painless with hardly any numbness afterwards. A huge metal filling was removed & replaced with a lovely white one & I felt nothing! Am even considering having the others replaced even though there's no dental need (would just look nice!) and I would never have imagined planning non essential dental care.

I would recommend Mike & his team to anyone, but especially to anyone who finds dental treatment a little bit scary & anyone with a child who can be a bit of a handful at the dentist.

Dr Michael Powell responded to this review:

Hello Barbara. Thank you so much for taking the time to share your experience on What Clinic. I agree, the wand is an amazing advancement in local anaesthetic and is virtually pain free with no numb face afterwards as it just numbs the one tooth. You are a wonderful Mum and your son is a credit to you, I am delighted he feels so comfortable in our care. See you in 6 months or before if you need us, Mike

"Very good dental treatment!"
100%Reviewed 26 Jul 2013 Review verified by email.
Treatment Received: Fillings, Cosmetic Dentist Consultation
cosmetic dentistry and routine care

I have experienced very good dental treatment and care. Now using Denplan to continue preventive support and occasional treatment. The experience has been very positive and has improved my confidence around dental issues. The newest improvement was when I had a filling and a dental wand was used to numb the area. There was no swelling at all and I couldn't even feel the injection.

Reshaping, Whitening & Veneers

Words cannot express how grateful I am for the treatment I received, from the beginning consultation right through to the final appointment I felt I was in the best of hands with Dr Powell and was very confident in his experience and professionalism and having explored a few different routes we settled on one I was happiest with. Helen was great in exploring each treatment possibility beforehand with an amazing visualisation tool that showed what the end result could look like. All the staff were extremely friendly, professional and very supportive. The dental practice is very modern and exactly the type of setting needed to put your mind at ease. My teeth now look perfect and white and my smile is no longer hidden thanks to Briercliffe Dental Practice, thank you so much.
