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

Dale Ashworth-Brown
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.
