  • I found Dr Patel very kind and caring and he kept asking if I was ok. His nurse was also very nice. I found the whole experience very positive.

    Verified patient
  • Very friendly, explained everything he was doing, not at all like the old school dentists that instilled fear in me!

    Verified patient
  • This was my first visit to this surgery and I found the staff very helpful and friendly. I saw Dr Sagar Patel who took the time to listen to my concerns, I had a check up and clean which I found him to be very gentle and considerate. I did not have any treatment as the pain in my gums was related to a virus not my teeth. I would most certainly recommend this dentist and I have booked my next check up.
