After years of avoiding visiting the dentist because of bad experiences, my fear was huge. I found Harwood dental practice on line and read all the reviews. I then felt i could trust this dentist. I have just recently had some work done and i opted for sedation. From the moment i arrived everyone was so kind and caring, from reception staff through. I was terrified. Now i can honestly say that i was given top quality treatment and care. All the staff are fantastic. I will continue to go regularly from now and no longer with a sense of utter dread. Thank you to the whole team you have restored my confidence and i look forward to my smile times.

I attended some appointments at Harwood Dental Care earlier on this year and I am so impressed at the amazing care and treatment I received. I'd recently moved to the area and was partway through treatment with my last dentist when I left. I still needed a filling and a crown and was a bit anxious about going to see someone new as I'd been with my last dentist for many years. I needn't have worried at all. I saw Dipesh and he put me at ease straight away with his relaxed and friendly approach. He did an examination and x-rays initially and talked me through everything I needed, giving me various options for the types of filling and crown I could have. He explained everything clearly in a way I could understand and gave me quotes for different types of treatment. When I came to have the treatment I explained I wasn't too good with needles. Amazingly, Dipesh was able to make my teeth numb using a state of the art "wand" device, which meant no needles! I wish I'd known about this years ago! All I felt was a small scratch and pushing feeling on the gum right next to the tooth - nothing like the feeling of a needle. As soon as he'd finished, my tooth was numb - but without that horrible "fat face" feeling you get with normal injections. The treatment itself was completely painless - I even found myself dozing off part way through! After he had done the filling and prepared my tooth for the crown, Dipesh spent a long time and a lot of care in making me a temporary crown. It looked absolutely amazing, just like a natural tooth - better than my own tooth looked beforehand and even better than proper crowns I'd had made in the past! A week or so later, I had the permanent crown cemented in place. It looks and feels perfectly natural and my work colleagues have even complemented me on it! Some of them have signed up as patients there as well, based on my recommendation. I am so grateful to have found this dental practice. I would award more than five stars if I could! I honestly would recommend it to anyone and everyone. I know they do sedation there too, so nervous patients are well catered for and the wand device is great for people like me who don't like needles. Thank you to Dipesh and his team. I will definitely be coming again!
