Just come back from Penryn Dental in Cornwall. I can't recommend them highly enough. Donal O'Halloran is wonderful. Talked to me before the check-up and totally put me at ease. Also offers IV if you need it.

Even better he asked if I wanted to lie back and he would sit behind me or if i wanted to be more upright and he could stand. He listened to my fears and was wonderful. i can't recommend him and his team highly enough.

I dont need much work done. Just a cleaning but i would have felt comfortable with anything. Seemingly he doesnt overdiagnose to get more money. Wonderful
