"I was very nervous before my first visit to Sophie as my teeth were so sensitive. Sophie put me at ease straight away, she was professional and gentle.
One month later and I can't believe the difference in my teeth and gums. I can now smile with confidence. I wish I'd seen her years ago.
Thanks Sophie. Fantastic!"

"Since visiting Sophie my teeth have improved ten fold. The service is 5*. Sophie has shown me excellent customer relations and made me feel very comfortable and at ease. Always informative and works with a smile. The nurse is always helpful and polite. Hope my treatment remains with Sophie."

"My first appointment with the hygienist was in January. Jeremy suggested an appointment following my check-up and it proved to be totally necessary and revealing! I had always thought that I looked after my teeth – how wrong I was. But after my first appointment with the hygienist I learnt many lessons on how to clean and protect my teeth and gums. The hygienist was exceptionally professional and explained in detail the problems and how they could be rectified. I felt comfortable and her manner was delightful. I would highly recommend this service and I know that without it I was destined to have serious problems with my teeth and gums. I left with a 'goody' bag containing oral hygiene equipment and I haven't looked back. Thank You!"

Anne-Marie Curtis

"Since commencing my hygiene treatment with Sophie I have experienced excellent care and good progress with each visit. I have never experienced such intensive cleansing with former dental hygienists and wish I had met Sophie ten years ago. Her caring manner and attention is second to none."
