I am an anxious dental patient but I have to say that Mrs Patel and her Dental Nurse make a fantastic team. The quality of work is outstanding, communication with the patient is calm, comprehensive and reassuring at all times and the atmosphere in the surgery is peaceful and professional. Ten out of ten and many many thanks.

Ian and Ruth Scott

We both have nothing but praise for the Oakthorpe Dental Practice. We have been with the practice for many years and would never consider going anywhere else.

We find the environment calm and professional. The waiting areas are pleasant and comfortable.

Staff at the reception desk and the chairside assistants are always friendly and helpful. Our dentist, Seetal, is charming, friendly and always totally professional. We feel we are in very safe hands as her patients. It’s a pleasure to see her.

We certainly would recommend the practice to our friends (and have done so.)


Oakthorpe Practice is exceptional and the best I’ve ever had in every way, from the environment to the quality of service, simultaneously both highly professional and friendly, making one feel completely at ease and well taken care of. I have already referred family members.


I would just like to record my appreciation of the great work of my hygienist, Doina, today. She exhibited an extremely high degree of professionalism, care and empathy as she went about her work. Much appreciated!


I have been a nervous and reluctant patient for many years, due to poor dentistry as a child.

The care and patience received from Seetal has been outstanding. Her calm, gentle manner immediately puts you at ease, and everything is explained with clarity and confidence.

I cannot recommend Seetal and her team highly enough.

Thank you!

Michael Bourdeaux

As a long-standng client of this practice and its predecessors, I'm delighted to state that, in my view, all the high standards are being well maintained and I certainly do recommend it when the occasion arises,

Catherine Sandford

I find the practice environment at Oakthorpe professional, uncluttered, scrupulously clean, yet reassuringly comfortable. I have received high quality service on my three visits. I feel there has been consistently careful listening from staff who embody a sense of calm professionalism. At no time have I felt pressured or rushed during an appointment, there is plenty of time to discuss treatments or voice concerns. All staff team members whom I’ve met seem to feel valued and exude a quiet self-confidence.
Lastly, I would have no hesitation in recommending Oakthorpe to family and friends.

Jeremy Noble

I find the environment at Oakthorpe Dental Practice relaxed, welcoming and efficient. The quality of service is excellent and all members of staff have a delightful manner. I would be very happy to recommend the practice to friends and family and indeed have done this very recently.

Derek Roebuck

I am always more than happy with the service you provide. Everyone is efficient, helpful and friendly. I would certainly recommend Oakthorpe to anyone.

Julie Duffield

I would like to say that I have always found the surgery very clean and comfortable with a pleasant atmosphere and good service. Although it is bit of a trek for me to come to Oakthorpe and there is a dentist in my village,I would still rather keep coming as the level of care is excellent and I have a great deal of trust in my dentist, she is very thorough and such a nice lady who puts me at ease. I would definitely recommend you to family and friends.

Rose Montgomery

The practice environment was clean, friendly and efficient. The quality of service was very good, efficient and clear. The Manner of team members was again friendly, helpful and efficient.

John West

The surgery is clean and spacious; there is plenty of light and the waiting areas are comfortable. I have been a number of times in the past few months and have always been seen promptly and greeted in a friendly way at reception. My dentist (Seetal) is quick, with a light touch. Seetal is clear and decisive, and has a good sense of humour. Other staff I have met have been cheerful and efficient. Though I am a relatively new patient, I would happily recommend Oakthorpe Dental to others.


I always find reception staff welcoming, friendly and very helpful indeed. Agis, my dentist is sensitive, caring and very competent. I especially appreciate how Agis carefully and patiently explains any dental problems and options for addressing them. I thoroughly recommend Oakthorpe Dental.

Robin Cohen

I've always been treated in a friendly, courteous and professional way by everyone at the practice.

Sally Hope

Superb practice. Dr Patel is thoughtful and careful and investigated each tooth thoroughly. Very pleasant Dental nurse and receptionists. Thank you

Jeremy Cunningham

I am very happy with the quality of service, friendliness of the reception, and the overall environment. I would be happy to recommend anyone to the practice.

Andrew Trotman

I am very happy to give some feedback about Oakthorpe Dental Practice.

I first became a patient in 1975 when I was a student and the practice was in St John Street, first with Mr English and then Mr Davies. He and I also knew each other through rugby football.

I continued with the practice when it moved to Summertown and I was working in Radley and then in Abingdon. I decided not to change to a local dentist.

I moved to Edinburgh in 1991 and then York, returning in 2006 to work around the corner as Warden (Head )of St Edward’s. We rejoined the practice. When we moved to near Stratford Upon Avon in 2011, we stayed with the practice: why change when the service was perfect.

Seetal is conscientious and extremely capable and has a warm and welcoming manner. Her nurses and reception staff are similarly caring and cheerful. The hygienists are all extremely professional too.

The surgery, reception and waiting areas are always clean and warm with a good range of magazines: my only opportunity twice a year to read

We could easily switch to local dentists, but we have a sense of loyalty as well as customer satisfaction with the Oakthorpe Practice.


Clean, calm and reassuring. I like the new grey colour scheme and seating. Very high and responsive quality all around. High quality dental work from both hygienists, dentists and assistants. The detail and attention of the work is excellent and I never feel trepidation or pain at the prospect of dental work. Relaxed, clear and friendly. Everything is explained clearly and calmly to me. I have already recommended my wife, who is now a patient.

RJ Freeman

The environment is good and relaxing. The service is excellent. The manner of the practice is very good. I would definitely recommend to others. Ms Patel is without doubt the best dentist I have encountered in my seventy plus years.

Diana Pemberton-Pigott

My appointment was made over the phone by a pleasant & helpful receptionist. I was to see Sarah Lloyd-Jones the hygienist first, followed by a check up by Seetal Patel which was very convenient.

The reception area has been updated with smart grey furniture & a good selection of magazines to read, although I did not have to wait long.

Sarah dealt with my 'tricky teeth' professionally and well. She has given me good advice over the years and my dental health has improved. She is friendly and the experience was good

Seetal checked my teeth and fortunately, there was no work to be done. She is an excellent dentist and I trust her judgement. She is both friendly and professional.

I would recommend Oakthorpe Dental to anyone.

Walter Bodmer

I am writing to say that I am very happy with the care I get from Oakthorpe Dental. The practice environment is very friendly and the quality of service excellent. I would unhesitatingly recommend Oakthorpe Dental to relatives and friends.


With sincere thanks for much speed and kindness when greatly needed.


Every area of service was outstanding and I have no hesitation in recommending the practice to anyone who has dental problems.


I have always found all the staff and treatments of the highest standard at Oakthorpe Dental practice. Being a child of the fifties, I have never liked going to the dentist but the care and consideration at this surgery is second to none!


I do tell friends about this practice if they ask for a recommendation. I have always found it a lovely peaceful place to visit, and staff are friendly and professional, and so far as I can judge, highly competent. The magazines are good, and current, though you seldom wait long enough to do more than glance at them. It does seem expensive, but then I suppose any high-tech dentist would cost as much (I haven't looked into this because at present I can afford the needs of my teeth, and I like going there...)


Really lovely and long reception start and really nice and relaxed environment. My dentist is always so lovely and helpful

Natasha Regisford-Reimmer

Thanks for a very smooth, efficient and friendly service regarding my recent tooth issues. The practice environment is clean, peaceful and homely. I was offered an appointment within 48 hours of my call on both occasions. The receptionist (Min) was informative, friendly and patient. The dentist (Seetal) and her assistant on both occasions were warm, professional and efficient. Even Agis said hello and asked after my children whilst I waited in the waiting room. I cannot fault the service and would definitely recommend to family and friends.


Thank you - I had a very good experience at my last two visits - good timing courteous welcome and efficient and accurate explanations for the management of my dental treatment.


I was very pleased with my first appointment at your practice. The environment was clean and well maintained and my treatment plan was clearly explained with reasonable prices. I have already booked two further appointments for a filling and a dental hygienist. I have also transferred my children to the practice and recommended you to friends.

Hameed Razaghi

I have always found the environment particularly clean, tidy and organised. The staff are genuinely polite and helpful with a first class and excellent service. I would/have happily recommended the practice and individual to my friends and family.

JB Lewis

I can say that all is fine and very professional. I routinely recommend you to my friends and acquaintances.

Liz Rosney/Kershaw

I would recommend the practice - service is great, ambiance excellent, I trust the advice of the practitioners. I would like the practice to offer students in full time education an NHS service or astudent discount. Overall I am impressed with the practice.

J Revell

I find the ladies at the desk to be very friendly and helpful, the practice extremely clean, bright and welcoming. Seetal is a very gentle dentist who immediately puts me at ease and explains each step if treatment is needed. The same goes for her team members. I would happily recommend your practice to family and friends.

Bryony Bethell

It's a pleasure to recommend Oakthorpe Dental. I have been with the practice for over a decades and have recommended it to family and friends who have been similarly impressed. My father, aged 87, feels that Mrs Patel is the finest dentist he has ever encountered. Skillful, gentle, upbeat and strong on explanation. I wholeheartedly agree. The practice premises are clean, bright and airy and the patient parking is a plus. Staff are friendly helpful and efficient. Charging policy and pricing is fair and clear. With best wishes and thanks for a first rate dental service.


I have said farewell to my dentures and hello to my new teeth (5 implants in total). My grateful thanks to Agis and team for their care and kindness. Each and every procedure was fully explained to me, I never felt at any time excluded.


Further to my recent appointment to both the hygienist and the dentist, I would like to advise that I was very happy with the service. The environment was very bright, clean and welcoming. The service was brilliant and the staff were all friendly and made you feel very welcome and put you at ease. I would have no problem with referring you to both family and friends.

Ian Saunders

Very good quality of service in all regards. Very helpful and welcoming team. Would definitely consider referring family and friends should the opportunity arise.

Colin Gay

I became a patient in 1981, and over the years I have received a consistency of high quality treatment, care and attention which has allowed me to recommend the practice to friends and family. Over the years, people have changed, the practice has changed and adapted to meet current requirements, but the quality of treatment and friendly care and attention has always been there. I am pleased to have been a patient for so long and look forward to being a patient for the foreseeable future.

Robin Mason

Whilst I was, of course, apprehensive about having an implant I found the whole experience to be very positive. The Oakthorpe Dental team were very professional and friendly, keeping me well informed as I went through this painless procedure - creating the perfect fit!


I was very happy with the service, the environment was very bright, clean and welcoming. The service was brilliant and the staff were all friendly and made you feel very welcome and put you at ease. I would have no problem with referring you to both family and friends.

David Cranston

Superb and Seetal is the most gentle dentist I have had

Soto Secada Family

We are very pleased after our first appointment, the environment was peaceful and the team was gentle and efficient. Our 4 year old daughter was very kindly treated and she would happily go back to your practice. We would greatly recommend your service.

Michael Winterbottom

As always, I was impressed by the treatment I received and by the kindness and friendliness of everybody in the practice

Mandy Vanstone

The dental treatment I received at Oakthorpe Dental was exceptionally good. A clear explanation along every step of my treatment meant that any anxieties I had, I was reassured that everything was going smoothly. I have been a patient at the practice for over 30 years now, albeit with the previous owner/dentist.I would not go anywhere else!

Tricia Patrick

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. Mel and Min at the desk always knowledgeable and helpful. Ican’t fault any member of the team. They are always friendly, welcoming and interested in us.They feel like friends.

Peter Espe (aged 85), Oxford

Recently I was advised to have a bridge construct to replace a tooth which was unable to be anchored permanently and kept falling out.I was quite apprehensive about this but Seetal Patel gently and efficiently carried this out with minimal discomfort over three visits.

Dawn Wyllie

The treatment I received was excellent I cannot praise the practice and staff enough for the service I received.
