Testimonials for Karen Hobbs HBSc


 Even though the dentist is not my favourite place to visit (!) I always look forward to my checkup and clean at Milford Dentist. Everyone is friendly and professional and Karen Boyd is the best hygienist I have been to. She has a gift of putting people at ease and is very thorough while not taking longer than is needed. I would highly recommend Milford Dentists!

Karen has a lovely calming nature which takes the fear factor out of my dental visits. She always plays great music and is a great conversationalist to someone who can only grunt while their mouth is open! Its no wonder she is the fresh breath consultant she truly is a breath of fresh air. I highly recommend the entire team at Milford Dentists- a friendly bunch of professionals.

Karen & the team at Milford Dentists make going to the dentist a pleasure! Friendly, professional and above all gentle, there is no-one else I could recommend highly enough for dental care. Karen is the best hygienist and is the only person I would go to for taking care of my pearly whites!

As someone previously a little nervous about visiting the dentist I couldn't feel more relaxed after my experience at Milford Dentists. Their friendly team make me feel well looked after, and I actually enjoy seeing Karen for my yearly hygiene appointments. Her warm and caring nature (and cool music) all help for the best dentist experience ever! Highly recommend.
