Sarah was absolutely fantastic I’m very nervous person, but because Sarah was so understanding we got there. Everyone is so friendly, now I have my new teeth .


I am a very nervous patient with several ongoing issues. The practice as a whole has gone above and beyond trying to reassure me and calm my nerves.

After previous awful hygienist experiences with another practice, I was extremely anxious. I needn’t have worried! I was treated considerately and gently and I left the appointment very happy.
