I called Dan my dentist as I broke one of my front teeth. He saw me quickly, took a x ray and made a plan to fix it. I asked if he could just round off the sharp bits as I was having an operation the next day. He said in that case let's sort it out now and worked through his dinner hour to do so. The result was amazing, I am an ex dental technician used to making teeth and for a dentist to make one as good as this in his surgery is super skillful. Thanks to Dan, Izzy and your great team.
First visited Gentle Dentistry a few months back in August 2019 following approximately 15 years without a dentist and with a huge phobia! Now end of November 2019 I’ve undergone extractions, root canal and a few smaller clinics. My fear has gone! Becky is and continued to be phenomenal at her job and her assistants Maya and Zoe have been incredible! Izzy is so welcoming and supportive from the moment you first visit. All consistent with their approach and service. I visited a Hygieniest for the first time ever and Jayne explained the entire process and having heard many myths, this was painless and I feel like I have new teeth.
This has truly been money will spent and I am well on my way to achieving my next milestones and a perfect smile. They are gentle, patient and most importantly work with YOU in your dental journey! At the end of phase one Gentle Dentistry have gifted me an electronic toothbrush absolutely FREE to congratulate me on my journey! This dental surgery put the patient FIRST and care so much about how you feel and helping you lose your fears and phobias! I can not recommend this surgery enough!!!!!!
In 2011 the team at Gentle Dentistry put the most beautiful smile back on my face after years of being embarrassed and self-conscious of my teeth - and it's been there ever since. They are all so kind and patient while being highly professional, effective and greatly skilled in their work. I am no longer anxious about going to the dentist and I smile broadly with confidence. Thank you all so much and for the continuing care I receive. Gentle Dentistry does exactly what it says "on the tin". Superb & highly recommended.
I can't recommend this dental practice highly enough. I found the reception staff to be most welcoming, approachable, and professional. The dentist, Dan Cattell and his team work well together and you feel instantly at ease with them. The level of care is appreciated.
I have neglected dental treatment regularly due to previous bad experiences. I used to dread, even fear going to the dentist. However I now genuinely look forward to it. I didn't think a dentist visit could be enjoyable or even comfortable. My advice is don't put it off, get it sorted today. I'm now more confident going forward with my dental health thanks to Gentle Dentistry.
I honestly cannot fault the team at Gentle Dentistry. With some traumatic experiences as a teenager with another dentist, I plucked up the courage to go for a check up after a few years. I was very nervous but Dan and the girls are extremely reassuring and put your every need before theirs. I cannot thank them enough for showing me that dentists aren't that bad after all. They even gave me a blanket when I was chilly!
