'I just wanted to post back to say I went to Thackerays and it was a very good experience indeed!

...well in comparason to the string of dodgy experiences I've had over the last 2 and a half years.

Although they do not do any sedation I took a valium (and a bit! ) and had 2 local anaesthetics for two large fillings and I can only say it went really well!

I saw Julia Riley there and she was efficient and gentle and it was the first time in a long time that when they say you will feel a small scratch, I barely felt a very small tiny scratch!

If you can manage without sedation, apart from valium, then I can wholeheartedly recommend this place!

Special mention to the practice manager Sam, very welcoming and will make you feel at ease. I'm just sorry I'm of to Australia and wont be able to go back to them for at least a year'
