 Crowns are shaped like natural teeth and fit like a cap over your own teeth. Private prices depend on materials used and time taken.

How nice the people are and how professional they are.

They were very considerate and patient with me as I can honestly say visiting the dentist is my room 101. From the receptionist to the dentist and dental nurse I was shown nothing but kindness. My dentist even made me laugh as he pulled out a tooth! Great place to get over your dental fears.

Two comments: The estimates say that "The cost of the treatment would be £xxx", when in fact it "... is £xxx". As monthly payers, we should have a discount on treatment beyond normal checkups. It would be good to see this itemised

Friendly professional Dentist and Staff and the reassuring confidence that they know what they are doing and will always do their best for me and my treatment.

Efficiency, caring and then helpfulness

Everyone is incredibly friendly. Appointment times are available if needed at short notice. I've been delighted with all dental procedures I've had.

Everyone is so friendly

Positive: It's close to home. Negative: I had a bad experience with a tooth infection so I was not too happy. Treatment is expensive.

The approachability of all staff. The cheerful atmosphere. The fact that I feel able to discuss my treatment with the dentist in such a way as to help me understand what the options are and make my own informed decision.
