Having not visited the dentists for 20+ years because of my fear particularly of needles. I finally bit the bullet mainly cos my teeth were in such a bad way i was embarrassed to smile and it was having such a negative effect on my appearance. after joining the waiting list for a local NHS practice i was eventually seen. without going into all the details of what happened I can only say that they have little or no empathy with nervous patients and their customer service skills are sadly lacking - AVOID !

Following this I went to XXX where I was seen by Fiona. The whole team there are fantastic particularly Fiona who put me totally at ease with her non judgemental and chatty way. They have the wand and sedation available and I can honestly say that the wand has virtually erased my fear of dentists. I can't believe how painless and simple it is ! I can't recommend The Wand, Fiona and the whole team at XXX enough.:)
