Newcastle Dentist



Nov 3, 2012
Just like to recommend Acorn Dental Surgery in West Jesmond. Went today for my 2nd dental appointment in 13 years and I couldn't have made a better choice. I suffer from bad anxiety attacks regarding the dentist but they made me feel so comfortable with everything that was going in, my concerns and fears were addressed before everything started, they made sure I was okay with everything every step of the way. Cannot thank the practice enough.

She said I would only need yearly check-ups now...but if they had asked me to come for a check-up every other week I wouldn't mind at all. Five star experience. Absolutely fantastic. Cannot praise them enough:jump::jump::jump:
