I have had an extreme phobia of the dentists for many years, to the point I have lost most of my teeth. I hated looking in the mirror and holding my hand to my mouth because of the missing teeth an I decided enough was enough. I googled dental phobias and I found Yasmin. I plucked up the courage and sent an email and before I knew it I had an appointment. This was the most stressful and traumatic time for me, I got to there and managed to actually get into the premises and then I fell to pieces. I was terrified and the tears flowed. I met Yasmin and went into her room, I was still terrified shaking crying. I felt so silly but the was wonderful, she didn't judge me, didn't make me feel like I was being a big baby as dentists in the past have made me feel. She spoke to me calmly and explained all the options to me and that we would progress at a pace that I felt comfortable at. To cut a long story short, my last visit she was bale to build up my front teeth, I actually let her work on my teeth without any anaesthetic. Yasmin is amazing, she has managed to make my visits bearable. I have started my treatment and I am looking forward to working with her over however long it takes to give me my smile back. Without her I am sure that it would be a totally different story. Thank you from the bottom of my heart. Philippa

Jay & Pavleen We recently moved back to the UK from Canada, where our 12 year old son had a negative experience whilst undergoing routine dental treatment. Since this experience and whenever we have tried to book an appointment, he becomes nervous and has a anxiety attack. We then discovered Yasmin, and mentioned our son's experience and our concern to her and after assessing him, she decided to begin Orthodontic treatment. Over several visits, Yasmin's sympathetic patience and sheer dedication built a relationship of trust between her and our son. Her calm, friendly yet firm approach gave our son the confidence he needed and when he required two extractions, she used the wand as a local anaesthetic and he didn't even realise that his teeth were already out! We are very grateful to Yasmin for all her support, especially in making our son overcome his fear of visiting the clinic over such a short period of time. Recently, our son's brace wire somehow popped out of place and as soon as Yasmin was informed, she arranged an immediate appointment for him to go see her and we were grateful for her recommendations. At every visit she has takes her time to explain to our son of all the stages involved and only moves on to the next stage once she is assured that he is happy and comfortable with it. Her assisting staff have always been conscientious and friendly. We would highly recommend Yasmin for her specialist work and for the fact that she uses the latest technology available. We wish we had know about her sooner! Should you wish to contact us regarding our experience with her, please obtain our contact details from her and we would be happy to chat. Thank you Yasmin for making this a turning point for our son and also a memorable and comfortable journey for him.

I was given a strong personal recommendation to see Yasmin George. For more years than I will admit I have suffered severe dental health problems. Unable to cope with phobia (despite many attempts,) I suffered bouts of infection, chronic pain, and worry over health, particularly when travelling. This had begun to seriously affect my life. The introduction to Yasmin has been a significant turning point, and I hope this testimonial will provide the same for others who, like me, have severe dental phobia. Previously, I could not pass a dental surgery without crossing the road, speak with anyone about dentistry, or even in my professional healthcare-related life feel comfortable in the company of a dentist. Arranging to attend the clinic was difficult the first time, but as soon as I met Yasmin and the team who support her, and later, Dr Will Botha, I felt comfortable and at ease. This was six weeks ago, since when I have undergone a significant programme of work, (multiple extractions and fillings) willingly and without concern. I attend the clinic on my own and with confidence. Yasmin has an exceptional approach, a complete sincerity and understanding of my fears, and an enthusiasm to restore my dental health. My reluctance to even be assessed (an otherwise meticulous person, I was very ashamed of my own neglect) was carefully and sensitively managed, and the utter relief of putting myself in Yasmin's expert care was overwhelming. I now feel that Yasmin is a friend who is sharing and steering my journey to achieving good health and who will absolutely ensure I get there. I have chosen to take intravenous sedation for the work. This is superb, there is simply nothing to fear. The effect is of sleeping and waking up not knowing a thing other than that you are in better health. I am now well on the road to achieving dental health, I know I can continue this programme, and am looking forward to enjoying the benefits it will bring. Already there has been a very significant positive impact on quality of life and health. There is no looking back! My thanks go to Yasmin George for her ability to encourage me to take this huge step, where all others have failed, and for meticulously choosing the right team to care for me. Thanks also to Dr Will Botha, my sedationist, equally caring and in whom I place complete trust.

After my initial consultation with Dr. Yasmin about 2 years ago, when she suggested to wear braces to fix my teeth and smile, I knew I was in good hands under her care at The Courtyard Clinic as her caring approach and professionalism are exceptional. The results are truly outstanding. Friends and family are constantly commenting how radiant I look, as I can't stop smiling! Everyone at the Courtyard Clinic is highly professional and makes you feel welcome at all times. I can only recommend the Courtyard Clinic to anyone who needs a good dentist, hygenist, orthodentist and/or teeth whitening.

Needing to find a dentist to sort out my front teeth, I decided to try The Courtyard Clinic. It was the best thing I could have done. The practice exudes calm and tranquility so from the very start I felt totally relaxed. The staff were so tuned in to the problem I had and why I wanted it fixed. After a thorough discussion where all my options were listed and costed, my final decision on what treatment I was going to have was made with the full cooperation and advice from the very understanding staff. The result? I can now smile as often as I can without feeling embarrassed about my teeth. Wonderful!!

Prior to finding the Courtyard Clinic I had not visited a dentist for about 10 years after a bad experience as a teenager, but an ongoing issue forced me to seek treatment. I chose the practice as they specialise it treating nervous patients. I felt reassured after my consultation with Yasmin that there was an alternative to my previous dental experiences, that I would not be judged or rebuked for having had such a long absence from treatment and felt confident that they would be understanding of my anxiety. My initial treatment was root canal, but Yasmin and the team were so patient and compassionate that even such an unpleasant treatment was made so much easier. The experience gave me the confidence to undergo orthodontic work that I had always wanted but never thought possible and I am overjoyed by the transformation. I have the beautiful smile that I always dreamt of and it has given me so much self-confidence. I feel it has helped me to become more outgoing, whereas before I felt very hesitant about talking to people due to my teeth, now I feel free to chat and smile to everyone. A few people have even commented on how lovely my teeth look, which makes me feel really happy! I can say with all honesty that if I were to go through the treatment again I would do so without hesitation. The whole experience has been really good and I am so pleased with the results. I would highly recommend the Courtyard Clinic. They provide such a warm and welcoming atmosphere one is immediately made to feel comfortable, and offer so much reassurance during visits I actually looked forward to my appointments. I am so grateful to Yasmin for providing me with such a beautiful result and to the girls for making my experience such a pleasant one.

It is a great pleasure to visit this high tech Dental Practice, and to feel the confidence that you are going to receive the very best treatment. Every aspect of your Dental care is discussed with you in a manner that you can understand, and a great effort is made to achieve a pleasing result. My teeth are now in excellent health with great thanks to this practice

It was only a broken tooth and living on borrowed time which got me to a dentist just before Christmas after xx years. However as soon as I heard Alison's voice on the phone, I knew I had picked the right dental surgery. Yasmin, Alison and Sue cannot be more professional, calming and reassuring. After extractions and fillings with and without the sedation, I'd say to any nervous patient 'just go and see Yasmin and don't worry about how long it's been since you last saw a dentist'!

Both myself and my partner are terrified of dentists. My partner especially! She finally realised she must see a dentist, and after extensive research chose Yasmin. She has been nothing but phenomenal. Removing teeth with so little pain, that after having wisdom teeth out, and being heavily sedated she was up and about with our baby going to groups with him and getting on with life completely normally! I had a problem with my wisdom tooth recently, and whilst Yasmin couldn't see me for a week due to the fact the dental surgeon not being available until then, off her own back on a Sunday night she rang around for me to get me an appointment somewhere else with no profit to herself at all. I would rather live with the pain for a week and wait to see the Courtyard Clinic than go somewhere else any day!


Lola Martin on 15th January 2012

I developed a fear of going to the dentist and had a filling that needed treatment, which I avoided for a year and it developed into needing root canal treatment. We found Yasmin on the internet and from the begining she and her staff were very understanding and helpful. The work on my tooth needed too be carried out urgently so she recommended sedation. Once the work was completed Yasmin took the time to develop a good relationship with me and help me overcome my fear. The treatment on the tooth was completed and I have been attending this practice for regular check ups without the need for sedation. I now feel much more relaxed about going to the denist.

I am a very nervous patient and I am so glad that I have found such a caring dental clinic and would have no hesitation in recommending anyone that is nervous to make an initial appointment!


Mike Holland on 9th October 2010

Yasmin is so professional and caring that my fear of the dentist disappeared without me even knowing
