"I have been a patient here for around 15 years, and have noticed some really great improvements over the last few years. The surgery seems more professional, and the overall atmosphere is fantastic compared to how it used to be. The staff on the front desk are always so polite and friendly, and always happy to help. The dentists and nurses themselves always make me feel relaxed, which I'm grateful for as I'm someone who always feels nervous going for a check up/hygienist appointment. I'm more than satisfied with the service provided and would 100% recommend them!" - Luke Rose
