After some time of searching for a dentist, I finally decided on Bob at Jiva Dental mainly because they offer sedation for very nervous patients, but also because Bob made me feel very at ease and talked to me about my plan of treatment making sure I understood every step that would be taken to bring my somewhat neglected teeth back to a healthy state and eradicate all the pain I was having. My experience was very good and I am over the moon with the results and relieved that I now Have a dentist I am not scared to go and see. All the staff at Jiva Dental are very attentive and understanding, which goes along way when your feeling nervous. I highly recommend Jiva Dental and especially to anyone who has the same nervous feelings about dentists that I have.

When my last dental practice closed, they recommended Jiva Dental. I finally decided to take the plunge and put my trust in a new dentist (Bob) and was very impressed.
Bob is thorough,gentle, sensitive, professional and efficient. He explains everything to the nth degree and makes sure you are happy and completely understand the recommended procedure.
I have complete confidence in Bob and his team (who are fabulous) and who are ready to answer any query you may have.

I first went to check JivaDental out to see if would like to make an appointment....was met in reception by the lovely Stella. She was brilliant, and pursueded me to book my initial consultant.
So, the day of the consultation, my legs would barely carry me up the stairs! I was so nervous....Dr Bob was amazing, spent so much time with me, discussing my previous dental treatment, and what made me nervous.
The consultant was very thorough, and Dr Bob took his time in discussing my whole treatment (past and future needed).
Dr Bob and his assistant Jess work amazingly together. I have now had two fillings done, and honestly, it's the best dental treatment I have had done.
These guys rock, and I have no hesitation in reommending them.

Changing dentists is not an easy process and I delayed doing so for a fatal 12 months at least. My previous dentist had gone away suddenly and in my mind would be a hard act to follow.
Every morning as I awake I was aware that my teeth were in need of attention, every day I put off taking the plunge. I had heard good things about the JIVA dental practice and I was inspired by a 70's group named Jiva recorded on George Harrison's Dark Horse Label.
So I bucked up courage in the certain knowledge that there would be work to do. I booked the complimentary consultation and the true about my teeth was revealed.
Doctor Bob has a good couch side manner and is a good communicator. I would need a lot of work. Every filling was leaking or needed replacing; there would be crown work, root canals and extractions.
I would also need to take better care of my teeth and treatment began.
That was in September 2013. My original fillings went back to the 1950's and 60's which had been embedded with history of the fear and dread of drills, injections and jangled nerves of the period. I don’t know how I would face that all over again. Doctor Bob was reassuring and caring. I gained confidence right from the first treatment and was able to relax and breathe calmly through the work. It was a lot of appointments over 20 in all.
The combination of Doctor Bob and Jessica created and environment of safety and healing. The healing of my fears and past traumas that had been with me since childhood. I have no hesitation in making this recommendation. The complete package Stella on reception Doctor Bob and his super efficient assistant Jessica add up to a very professional and user friendly team.

I found Jiva dental after a quick Google search of my local area. I was looking for somewhere close by, well presented and sensitive to nervous patients. I had not been to a dentist in almost half my life but finally needed some work done - despite being dental phobic, I had a very positive experience.
I was very impressed with the practice; very clean, tidy, well decorated, relaxing music and kind and friendly staff which made me far more comfortable immediately. I needed quite a bit of work and was apprehensive but went ahead with treatment under conscious sedation.
The sedation experience was great; I remember bits and pieces of the surgery but was extremely relaxed throughout. I felt no pain during or after my two 2 hour sessions and was awake and (pretty much) back to normal within a few hours of treatment.
If you are a nervous patient, I can highly recommend Jiva Dental's sedation treatment.

Thanks to Bob I no longer fear visiting the Dentist. Growing up I had to be given a mild sedative in order to visit the dentist for any routine work.
Stella and Jess are very welcoming and adept at putting the customer at ease.

Millions of thanks to Bob, Stella & Jess!
Extremely professional, kind & caring.
I was very nervous of dentists having had very bad dentistry over twenty odd years. I had lots of work done & my teeth looked awful. I was very self conscious.
I was looking for a good dentist for my daughter as I didn't want her to go through what I had. Jiva dental welcomed us beautifully, my nervous daughter was looked at & thought they were brilliant & very helpful, those were her own words.
I then plucked up the curage, felt confident with Bob straight away and decided to go through with some work.
I wish I had met Bob twenty years ago. My teeth look natural & beautiful which I thought I would never say. I really want the rest done now.
I cannot thank Bob enough, 100% and more to you !
Thank you for adding your reivew. It has been sent to the Dental Phobia team and will be published shortly.
