Not knowing what arrangements are in place with the pandemic I had a problem with a loose tooth and some infection... that, although not causing discomfort, was only going to get worse. I rang for advice and was given an appointment within 24 hours. The precautions taken were very friendly and efficient and the treatment excellent. Never felt a thing and now one wisdom tooth less without any problems. I know it's a strange thing to say but I enjoyed the experience. Highly recommended (but only when necessary!).read more

I had my first appointment with Claire and her assistant Sandra. Part way in there was a power outage. For many... places that would have ended tge appointment requiring a reschedule - but not here. I had a very pleasant chat with Claire until the power came back on and they resumed the treatment. They took this in stride making it easy for me to do so as well. It is true that it is easy to evaluate something when everything goes right, but the best measure of performance is what happens that is out of the ordinary.All of the staff are friendly, warm and welcoming- a terrific asset for a Dental Practice as you are immediately put at ease.Claire is superb and I am sure that the remaining treatment will rise to the bar she set.No need to look elsewhere, if you are a patient at Dollar Dental then you are already in the right place. If not, then make your appointment more

I have been visiting this dentist for 31 years and I have a real fear of attending. Both myself and my daughter have... just received a scale and polish treatment from Tashfeen, the dental hygienist and she made me feel more relaxed. She was gentle and talked me through each step. At the end of the appointment she gave me a lot of advice around my condition and brushing in general and in all honesty I have never had that degree of help in the past. Very knowledgable thanks so more
