My husband, John, and I could not be more satisfied and delighted with Oakthorpe Dental Practice. The practice environment is very modern and attractive, especially since new furniture was installed recently.Stylish and appropriate and always good magazines to read! The quality of service is superb. We always get a warm welcome on the phone and in person. Somehow there is always an appointment available when needed and the attention whether from Seetal or Emma (our hygienist), is focussed and knowledgeable about our dental history. Seetal is extraordinarily gentle and encouraging and does a marvellous job helping us look our best and preserve our teeth. Emma’s advice has been invaluable about mouth hygiene.
