"I’ve been going to Dr Patel for many years. He takes so much care in treating me. Even for someone like me who couldn’t think of anything worse than a dental appointment, he makes it all smooth and comfortable and before you know you are out of there with shiny new teeth! I also love that he has never tried to oversell a treatment, whatever he suggests always feels so genuine and much needed that I trust him fully. The hygienist was so pleasant too, as were all the other staff at his new practice."

"I had quite a few issues with my teeth. Incorrect leaking veneers and damage due to acid reflex. After a recommendation to see Dr Patel he put a plan in place for me for veneers and some crowns. The experience was always prompt and painless and well explained. My smile is always commented on and I have my confidence back. It was so good that my husband also went to see Dr Patel for his perfect smile. Veneers where needed and whitening for stained teeth. Superb dentist I won't go anywhere else now."
