Excellent service all round. The reception is warm and welcoming and the team provided me with all possible information. I called at short notice with a painful failed extraction from a previous dentist some years ago. I'm nervous but the whole procedure was virtually without discomfort. I will be a regular for my dental needs ongoing. No pressure selling to rebook. Yes this is a private service but in my opinion they are notably a cut above the rest. Worth every penny.
