Client Testimonials

  • What I liked i would highly recommend this dental practice. The dentist is an exceptional dentist, taking the time to explain and to put you at ease which is not always easy bearing in mind that most people are dental phobics! The surgery is very clean and the staff are all very well presented, friendly and efficient. i would give this practice 10/10 and have not hesitated in referring my family and friends. What could have been improved i cannot think of any improvements they could make. Any other comments i did not realise that extended hours were offered but i am pleased to see this as i will be able to book my future appointments without having to use up holiday time at work which is greatly appreciated.

  • What I liked Moving to a new area can be a nightmare in terms of sorting out those last little bits like registering with a dentist. And this, in turn, becomes a major problem when you are in agony and don't have a dentist to go to. I was given the Dental Centre Practice telephone number via NHS direct after being in so much pain and needing a root canal. I was booked in later that day as an emergency appointment, was treated exceptionally well and so relieved to have had my pain dealt with. I completed my treatment within a month and was slightly worried that I would then have to go and find yet another dentist, as I had only been treated as an emergency... thankfully I stayed on as a regular patient and have been visiting them for over 3 years now. I am very happy with the service provided, my daughter is also registered with them and I would recommend Dental Centre to anyone looking for an NHS dentist in the Bournemouth area. The lovely Receptionist also calls to remind you of your appointment the day before – if you are a little absent minded, this is a real help. Conveniently located at The Triangle in Bournemouth, easy to park nearby and a clean and pleasant atmosphere.

  • What I liked This was my first visit to the Dentist in more years than I care to disclose due to being slightly phobic about dental treatment. The Dentist I saw was exceptionally good at putting me at ease through explanation and engaging me in the whole process of the examination and discussion about what treatment may be necessary. I was so surprised and reassured by such a positive experience and would have no hesitation in reccommending this practice. What could have been improved I don't feel there is anything that could be improved on. My experience was very positive Any other comments All staff that I have come into contact with at this surgery have been very sensitive to individual needs

  • I hate dentists but I've got to say this practice has changed my views. They've been patient with my children and taken time to ease my anxieties. I particularly like the way they use technology to explain what they are going to do and what they have done. I don't feel i'm being ripped of because they show me what the problems are and how they are going to fix it. They are open about the different levels of treatment and I feel like they let me make the decisions - even when its wrong. They told me I should fill a tooth. I put off the treatment and it cracked.

  • I chose this Dental Centre based on the excellent reviews I had seen on this website, and I can now confirm that all this high praise is for good reason! I had not visited a dentist for many years, with the exception of an emergency visit to have a decaying wisdom tooth removed during my final year at uni. Well the wisdom tooth on the other side went the same way over Christmas and I decided that it was time to bite the bullet and sign up with a dentist again (even though I hadn't much liked dentists in the past) . Within a week or so of completing the registration from the practise called and booked me in for my first appointment the following week. I saw a dentist and I can honestly say they were by far the best dentist I have encountered. Extremely professional and competent yet informal enough to make you feel at ease, they took the time to explain everything clearly and concisely and involved me in the decision process throughout. Also I didn't receive any of the condesending lectures I had previously associated with dentists, so right from the start the experience was excellent. It turned out I needed 2 fillings as well as the wisdom tooth extracting. I was able to have the fillings done right there and then during my first appointment and once again I was talked through the options excellently and not forced into anything. The fillings took minutes, no pain, no discomfort, infanct the whole experience was less invasive than some checkups I remember from my teenage years! Once the fillings were complete the dentist reduced the price slightly as they had required less "filling" than originally thought and performed a full clean up on the rest of my teeth, eradicating all traces of the tea/tobacco stains I'd acquired through all those years of not visiting a dentist. After all this I had no doubt at all that I wanted this dentist to perform the wisdom tooth extraction and they were able to book me in the following week. I am now writing this review only a couple of hours after having the extraction and can confirm once again that the standard of work was exceptional. Everything was clearly explained to me, extra care was taken to ensure I was completely numb and comfortable and I was reassuringly talked through every stage as it was happening. I thought my previous wisdom tooth extraction was relatively painless but this one today was in another league. No pain, no discomfort and not even much in the way of odd noises (previous extraction sounded like my skull had shattered), the whole thing seemed to be over in no time. I walked out thinking I needn't have taken the afternoon of work! Far, far better than waiting months for a hospital appointment and being knocked out for the day, I am so glad I had it done here. I am now booked in for another checkup in 6 months and look forward to regular visits. A big thank you to my dentist and their colleagues for the friendly and professional work they do. If you need a great dentist look no further.

  • As long as the treatment stays at the level I have experienced at this practice, I will be a very happy person.

  • First time in about 20years (I'm 27) I haven't had a meltdown. The dentist has a calm method/approach & has given me a glimmer of hope that I could maybe overcome my issues! Highly recommended!!

  • For years I have not been to the Dentist due to extreme fear. Unfortunately last November my front tooth fell out and after much nagging by my family I eventually plucked up the courage and booked appointment at Dental Centre. I researched them first and can honestly say it was the best days work I had ever done. My dentist was so professional and really reassuring. They completed all my work in three sessions (and I had a terrific amount of work done). I can honestly say I am no longer afraid of the dentist and in fact have registered my whole family with them. First class service . Thank you

  • Due to moving into the area I had to find a new dentist. Like any right minded person going to the dentist was not something I ever looked forward to. After checking out the nhs website I was really pleased to find a dental practice which had received such good reviews. The dentist I saw was brilliant. The dentist had a very reassuring manner and discussed everything with me before carrying out the treatment. I feel very lucky to have found such a good dentist straightaway. Also I must mention the receptionist who was lovely.

  • Friendly dentist, know what they are doing. I had lots of work done since a young age (hate dentist) and they make me feel comfortable (all happy now!). Best bit is they are in the town centre next to a car park, I don't have to worry about transporting to and from the practices.

  • First visit to dentist in 5 years. Friendly staff who took time to explain treatment and understand my fears of dentistry. Great with the children answering all their questions.

  • In my 60s I have seen lots of dentists but this practice is the best by far. I have been attending for 3 years. My wife is a patient too. Without exception, the staff are efficient, kind and caring from the friendly charming receptionist to the dentist. You are listened to. Then given a full explanation of the problem and the recommended treatment which is carried out efficiently and painlessly in a relaxed but professional atmosphere. I cannot recommend it too highly. Whether it's a check up or a more complex issue , it will be dealt with to the highest standard. I have absolute confidence in them

    Terry,

  • After having been to some awful dentists in Bristol. I was recommended this dentist by an elderly man from Westbourne and I am so pleased. The anaesthetic injection did not even hurt and neither did the root canal work.

    Alyce T,

  • My wife and I recently moved to the area and had to find a new dentist. Having read glowing reviews we decided to to try this practice. We were both very impressed with all aspects of the service from the friendly receptionist to the excellent treatment we received from the dentist and nurse. I wish I had gone there years ago. I would recommend this dentist to anyone.Excellent.

The dentist made me relaxed all the time, explained procedures very clealry and made me comfortable during the treatment. From receptionist to the dentist and nurse, I highly recommend this practice. Will definitely recommend to my family and friends too.
