Customer Testimonials

I would 100% recommend this dentist! So happy I chose to do my treatment with them!

I personally would highly recommend the Invisalign treatment. I found them easy to wear and was happy with the fact that they are clear and relatively unnoticeable compared to other types or braces. I didn’t come across any major problems during my treatment. I am very happy with the finished results and think it was money well spent.

I wanted straight teeth but was always fearful of the dentist so had put it off for years! That was until i required a root canal- eek! However the care and compassion of Dr Avi around my fears gave me the confidence to enquire and now over a year later and straight teeth I couldn't be happier! The support I've received (even when I've been non-compliant in wearing my retainers) has been fantastic. I'm so pleased I chose the Invisalign option; they're easy to wear, they're durable and you cannot hardly notice they're there- they have minimal to no impact on everyday life but more than that, I'm pleased I chose gentle dental care to help me!

Had so much work needed in my mouth and i could not smile anymore as i was so embarassed, came to gentle dental who looked after me throughout my treatment, they where very friendly and polite and helped me through having 7 implants plus more surgical work done...great team and would highly recomend gentle dental to all. can now smile and eat properly with no fuss

So happy with my amazing teeth! Nam and Avi have been so supportive and flexible around my busy work schedule. All the staff are always friendly and happy to help. I get so many compliments on my teeth now. Georgina is always welcoming with a friendly face to book my appointments. The dream team!

My oral cavity used to be a dental grave-yard, broken teeth, fallen-out crowns...fear of dentists cause me to neglect my teeth for years. I finally had to do something about it or I would have to live on soup! I researched many sources and felt Gentle Dental seemed to "tick the boxes".
It was a relief: They listen to me, explained in detail, were kind and never rushed me.
Now...oh, I can laugh with an open mouth...I can eat crunchy apples...and I feel calm when I have an appointment coming up. I didn't think that could have been possible in the past. Thank you

I could not thank Gentle Dental enough for the absolutely SUPERB, genuine and quality care that they have provided me with since the moment I stepped through the door almost 2.5 years ago. I used to hate going to the dentist (which was why I ended up needing numerous fillings, a crown, a veneer and a dental implant) but the team at GDC made me feel completely relaxed as I knew they were always working in my best interest. They are the best in the business and I will never stop recommending them!

Very good. The staff are nice and friendly and they make sure your ok. You can watch tv whilst you have your teeth done, which distract you from whats going on.

Absolutely incredible. Service is above and beyond the call of duty. A 20 year phobia of dentists cured in one visit, to the point that I actually fell asleep during a root canal filling! I went in last wk totally distraught with a broken front tooth and I left 3 hrs later with a perfect tooth. Cannot recommend this dental practice highly enough

I had 3 teeth out (including a Wisdom tooth) and it was so painless the first I knew they had come out was when I was told. Back tomorrow for 2 more to come out and although I cannot say I am looking forward to it, I am certainly not worried or concerned about it. Many thanks to all the help and advice from the team

I am very happy with my local Gentle Dental Care Practice, and feel at ease when i go to appointments
They have been very helpful in arranging quick appointments when necessary
I would recommend highly

Brilliant just brilliant. This is the place to come, relaxed atmosphere, quiet, welcoming, and really take pride in caring for their patients. They work hard to solve a problem and to make you as comfortable as possible.

From Our Website

Our core philosophy ismaking the dental experience gentle and more comfortable for everyone. More specifically, we have great people working together as a'dream team'. With this approach we can deliver comprehensive care with integrity, leading to success as a group practice. New team members have a comprehensive induction and training with a member of our team that understands how we deliver our standard of care prior to taking on independent responsibilities. We work hard as a team and help each other out especially if we see one of our own struggling.

Routine dental hygiene visits are essential - after all, the leading cause of tooth loss is poor gum health and not tooth decay. Maintaining gum health by visiting our highly skilled hygienists will lead to improving the longevity of your teeth. Many people who come to us have suffered the consequences of bad oral hygiene and need teeth taken out - don't let that be you! By coming to us early we can stop the disease process from starting and even if you have gum disease, don't delay as we can always help.

Although dental implants are the best option to replace missing teeth, they are not always appropriate. If you still want a fixed option then dental bridges may be the next best alternative. This is where teeth on either side of the gap are crowned, and the teeth are all joined together. The good thing about this option is that these types of bridges generally last for a long time and they are fixed in place. You will need to have some work carried out on the adjacent teeth, which will often need grinding down in order secure the bridge.

Dental crowns are a natural-looking way to improve the appearance of cracked or chipped teeth. They can provide a more aesthetically pleasing alternative to white fillings, or they can be used to improve the overall look of damaged teeth. They might also be used to protect your teeth, especially after a root canal treatment when a filling might not be sufficient. If your teeth are heavily filled or chipped, you have the option of either restoring them with a white filling or having a crown. A crown can be a better option as it will look great, is extremely well polished, and is stronger, meaning the longevity is much better.

Veneers enable you to improve the look of your teeth, helping to change their appearance naturally and ensure you end up with a smile that you love. They can be used to correct small, isolated alignment issues, or to make all the teeth in your mouth look whiter and straighter. Veneers can help you rediscover your smile and feel more confident in the way you look. Improve your smile with ultra-thin, beautifully handcrafted veneers that are made to last a lifetime. All our veneers are designed with your input, guaranteeing you'll have the smile that you've always wanted.
