I have received excellent treatment careMichelle, UK, 25 04 17

My daughter has just had an upper wisdom tooth removed as it was causing pain and discomfort on her lower gum. She's 19 years old and never had a filling or tooth extraction before today. NIgel Hammond put her at ease, explained everything he was doing before and during the procedure and gave advice on aftercare. My daughters treatment was not rushed and was pain free Excellent treatment by experienced staff. Would recommend this dental practice.
