I hadn’t been to the dentist in a few years and was nervous to go. My mum recommended Parkfield to me and they have been amazing! They made me feel incredibly comfortable and at ease, despite having to wear a lot of PPE and talked me through any procedures I needed doing.

Chrissie Knight
My partner has been seeing Jo and Gill for years as she had a lot of nervousness about dentists but thinks they are great. I'd not been to a dentist in 10 years but she persuaded me, I saw Dr Shah for a filling and was very happy with his professionalism and manner. I now go regularly like a good patient and would recommend them.
William Davies
I have been seeing Jo for approximately 3 years now. She is very calming and trusting as she works and as someone who is a little nervous at the dentist this is extremely comforting. She has been great with my girls (3 and 5), they in fact LOVE going to the dentist. Her magic wand and chair have them mesmerised!
Beckie Lowe

I had my first consultation today with Dr Shah. He did a very thorough examination and explained his findings and treatment plan clearly with the aid of photographs and x-ray pictures. Given the quality of the service the fees are very reasonable. Highly recommended.

Based in Didsbury, south Manchester, at Parkfield Dental Practice it’s high on our priorities that patients feel relaxed and happy inside the clinic.

We’re very proud of our clinic. From the comfy seating to the stylish decor, we put a lot of thought into how we could create a dental clinic that sets itself apart from others. The atmosphere is important, both in the waiting room and the treatment rooms. Not every dental practice makes an effort to create a relaxing environment for patients, but we see it as an absolute must.

Yes. The truth is that just because you don’t have any pain, that doesn’t mean that you don’t have dental problems. Both tooth decay and gum disease can become very advanced indeed before they cause any pain. If you’re waiting to feel pain before seeing the dentist, the likelihood is that the treatment will be more difficult, expensive and time-consuming.

We always recommend regular checkups with your dentist here at Parkfield. In a routine check-up, we’ll assess your teeth and gums and advise you about your own dental care and hygiene. The best way to avoid dental problems is to take preventative measures and maintain excellent oral hygiene.

A lot of people feel nervous about coming to the dentist – especially a new dentist! Sometimes this dental fear or phobia is so bad that it stops people from making an appointment unless they have a serious problem. Here at Parkfield Dental, we do whatever we can to help you.
