Dental Crowns totally changed my confidence and now I'm able to smile again

5 50 Dental Crowns

Kevin fitted 6 new crowns quite a few years ago for me as my front teeth were badly worn due to me grinding my teeth. He adjusted my bite also which means I no longer grind my teeth. This totally changed my confidence and now I'm able to smile again on photos. I would highly recommend Kevin and wish him every success in his lovely practice.

I have been going to Kevin since before he started his own practice and I can honestly say he is the most gentle, professional dentist.

It was my first appointment at this clinic. The initial treatment was performed in the best way. No pain, and very quickly done. Thank you.

I didn't imagine it could be fixed so simply. Marvelous!

5 50 Dentist Consultation • Paid: £200

I am a relatively new patient to Mr. Winter. I have been phobic about dental treatment all my life. Since starting treatment at his practice, I have been amazed at how much easier it is for me to attend appointments due to the friendliness and professionalism of all the staff, the excellent care, and the lovely environment. His manner is so reassuring that even having extractions was not too awful. He sorted a minor problem out for me today that has troubled me for years which I didn't imagine could be fixed so simply. Marvelous!

Friendly , efficient and effective practice

5 50 Dentist Consultation

I would highly recommend Higgins and Winter. Having responded very quickly to my email contact made on a Sunday they were able to see me for treatment the following day. I was made to feel at ease and confident about the urgent treatment that I required . The attractive new surroundings of the surgery create a restful backdrop for a friendly , efficient and effective practice
