While fixing some broken links, I came across the following post from 2015, which was made by our very own @drhirst (aka Lincoln):

"I can recommend Samir Jivraj of Charminster House Dental Practice in Bournemouth.

Samir worked for me for many years before taking over this practice with his wife Saffina. He is skilled, compassionate, caring and very honest. I have no doubt he will be able to help you."
