Even under the current restrictions, they're still delivering quality service. Despite finding out I required root... treatment the young dentist couldn't have been more helpful and informative. Patched me up with a temporary filling then sent me on my way. So....still the root treatment to look forward to, but most importantly (for now) no pain! My next appointment can't come soon enough. When this will be is a bit of a lottery however, as there's a backlog which is understandable. I'm sure I will be in their compotent hands once again, in the near future.read more
