I had huge filling to do, and I got Tristan to do that, he was super professional and super friendly, he really made me feel confident and relaxed, and the whole atmosphere was great. Great job and great team! Thank you

I'm normally reticent about giving reviews, and am super fussy about dentists - I tried five different ones on two continents before discovering Tristan, Karen, Jas and Mel. Tristan has just replaced a dead bottom incisor for me and although it has been a long process I'm totally happy with the result. Throughout he was thorough but deft and quick so that I didn't have to experience any more than the minimum discomfort. Like all the other five star reviewers on here I have nothing but praise for the whole team - highly recommended!
