I wish I'd found Dr. Crowther years ago. I had my first filling just over a year ago with absolutely no pain but more importantly, the procedure was carried out in a very calming and caring way. I've since had a few more visits but for the first time in decades, I haven't needed Diazepam in order to be seen by a dentist. My teeth are important to me and thanks to Dr. Crowther and his team I can now look forward to having them looked after properly with no more stress or anxiety. If you're a nervous patient (or not) I can thoroughly recommend you visit. It's life-changing.
