Patient Reviews of Viva Dental

"Highly recommend."
100%Reviewed 09 Nov 2015 We were unable to verify the reviewer.
Treatment Received: Dentist Consultation
As someone who actively avoids going to a dentist I was made to feel that my fear was unnecessary. Dr Sabeti is the most gentlest dentist ever. No pain. She took her time to explain what a root filling and kept talking about what was happening in each stage that I felt so relaxed.
The practice doesn't look, smell or feel like a dental practice. The staff are so friendly. No queues, relaxing atmosphere. Made to feel welcome. They explained everything and everything was as they had explained or better. Highly recommend.
