I would give 0 stars if it was possible. After paying £1,500 and one year of weekly 30 mile round trips to Art of... Dentistry I have a set of false teeth that are not fit for purpose and are barely visible. In addition, they sit down to the left and there is no suction on the roof of my mouth so they constantly move about in my mouth which is extremely frustrating. My confidence has been shattered with this whole experience and the response of the dentist to my issues with the teeth has actually been extremely upsetting. His response was he could see the tips of my £1,500 teeth and he can’t make me another set (not that I would want any as couldn’t put myself through this again). He also suggested it’s my fault because I have a ‘narrow ridge’. If I do have a narrow ridge then this should not be news to him as this was something that would have been obvious at the outset and if he felt he couldn’t make teeth to fit with it then he should just have said so at the start and it would have saved all of this upset. I no longer even wish to see this dentist again so will submit my letter of complaint to the practice manager and the Dental Complaints Service to try to reach a resolution.read more

Just had first appointment with Dr Wiseman and dental nurse Amy. I have a severe phobia of dentists and saying it took... a lot to go is an under statement. I cannot believe what an amazing experience I had. I can't believe how easy they made it for me and what lovely professional people they are, also Tricia the Receptionist could not have been nicer to me. I came out feeling a great weight had been lifted. Cannot thank them enoughread more

I cannot rate david and his team enough! I had a really bad experience with another dentist (which cause some major... issues to my teeth). But david worked his magic, I can honestly say his work is incredible, my teeth are looking so much better. He makes you feel at ease from the moment you walk in.The whole team are a total credit, all so lovely and friendly. Even with covid everything is so so safe, the standards are always the highest.I no longer have a fear of going, coming from someone who had to have a sedation to have any work.I am confident in the clinical judgement and trust whatever treatment is needed is the best treatment. I highly recommend couldn't give enough stars for the team they are all incredible 😁read more

“Very pleased with the treatment and outcome. Every care was taken to ensure the treatment was comfortable. My only regret is not having had it done sooner. Can’t compliment David and the staff enough. It is a life changer.”

Janet, Ayrshire

“I can smile showing my teeth for the first time in my life!!! As a very nervous patient, I was immediately at ease with all the staff and the dentist. So relaxed that I looked forward to my return visits. My new teeth are the best and most important thing I have ever done for myself. After much research I attended this practice and have not been let down. My teeth are beautiful and strong and I am confident. Thank you.”
