My daughter Isis has had treatment with Brian. I cannot recommend this practice enough, from the initial phone call to the treatment she received, absolutely brilliant. Brian is patient, caring and very sympathetic to the situation with my daughter having a huge fear of dentists, panic attacks and phobias. Everything was fully explained and felt at ease the moment we walked in. Without a doubt I will return should either of my children require any further treatment. 10 out of 10.

I had been putting off getting my teeth sorted for some many years and the longer I left it the more scared I became about the whole thing I got but luckily for me I met Brian and now I’ve been living pain free all thanks to this top notch fellow! Highly recommended

My 7 year old Sam has real anxiety when going to the dentist but Brian has built an amazing relationship with him. He’s funny, kind and talks through everything with him (and me!). Sam had sedation to remove a tooth and he left the dentist smiling! He couldn’t feel any pain or discomfort during the procedure and was relaxed and happy throughout. Brian and his team are true legends. I highly recommend anyone with a phobia or anxiety to use him!

Brian and his team are amazing! Brian is so kind and calm a and explains things so clearly. I am so grateful to him for helping me with my fears. I have had lots of bad experiences so having to have teeth out terrified me but I could not of been better looked after. He really cares, I just wish I had had him as my dentist much much sooner.!thank you so much Brian and team you really are brilliant

I am 72 years old. I am also a true dentalphobe, having suffered greatly all my life at the hands of conventional dentists in the UK and abroad. I therefore thanked my lucky stars (and Google) when I discovered Dr Brian Needham (at Wadebridge Dental Practice) specialised in treating phobic patients like me. During the appointments I was treated with kindness, humour and understanding, for the first time in my life. Brian's easy-going, jokey patter quickly put me at ease and the final treatment, with I.V. sedation was actually a pleasant experience! I came away relieved and happy with my new, small denture. Thank you, Brian and team. I cannot recommend Wadebridge Dental Practice highly enough.

Previously had horrible experience with dentists, Brian was recommended by my daughter, I had to have a lot of work done, Brian and his team made me feel at ease and we’re very caring and supportive, I had sedation and the work done all was excellent and the aftercare, I can’t recommend enough Thankyou everyone xxx

I have always had a phobia about going to the dentist and it took my previous dentist over 30 years to put me at ease. However I moved out his area and moved to Cornwall and had Ben here just over a year when I had terrific toothache and made a decision to try and find a dentist here as to far over 300 miles to travel now. After searching for reviews I came across Dr Brian Needham at Wadebridge Dental and made an appointment to see him and although a little nervous he made me feel like a person not another patient which really assured me of his care. The tooth was badly infected and so he gave me antiobics and agreed to see him in a few days. We discussed sedation and I thought this was the best action as he would probably peel me off ceiling. I came out of the practice feeling uplifted. On the day of sedation again Dr Needham was terrific and put me at ease. His care and the 2 nurses and all the staff were great and would not have any hesitation to recommend him and the practice if they like me have a phobia about dentists which for me stemmed from bad treatment when I was younger on more than one occasion which put me off for a very long time but not not Dr Needham is now my go to dentist.
