One said "I would recommend this practice without hesitation", another said that "I get very clear explanation of my treatment here, and I trust the dentist's decisions". Feedback from surveys carried out by the practice also indicated a high level of satisfaction from people.

Each new patient had a check of their medical history and a discussion with the dentist before treatment. At the initial consultation, the dentist explained the different treatment options, their risks and their benefits, and the cost.
