My family and I have used Ashwell dentist since it first opened, My Dentist has always been amazing, very thorough and puts the children at ease. They love visiting them!


Always a positive experience. Very professional, but polite, friendly and approachable. The whole staff work as an efficient and competent team, respecting each others professionalism in their own field of expertise. I never feel as if I have been hurried, the atmosphere being calm and pleasant. Every area is welcoming, clean and full of light. I didn't ever think I would say this.............it is always a comfortable experience


M Gisby

A really good practice that I would not hesitate to recommend to anyone. The treatment was carried out quickly and without pain, it took less time than I had thought and the dentist was lovely, putting me at ease, explaining everything and they were gentle too.

Nothing could have been improved. This practice always provides a good service and treatment is effective


M Chapman

Knowing that I was somewhat nervous of visiting the dentist, I was immediately put at ease by the care shown by all staff I came into contact with.. Before I underwent any treatment, the whole process of what was about to happen was described in detail to help put my mind at rest. The treatment itself was relatively quick with minimum fuss. I would certainly recommend this practice.

M Hylton

The staff are very friendly and they know me by name as I've been so regularly and I like the waiting room with the magazines and the choice of tv programmes.

It is a lovely practise with lots of friendly people working there.


Receptionists are very friendly and helpful. Nice warm smiley welcome from nurse as shown to surgery. Dentist very efficent, friendly and happy to treat nervous patient. Hygienist don't use the water which is great as I have very sensitive teeth. Building very modern and clean - toilet is like a bathroom!!


All the staff are very helpful and very friendly. Really don't mind coming to see the dentist it all. The whole experience is is very relaxing.

M Bowen

I've been attending this Dentist for a number of years. I've always found the Practice to be extremely professional and aware of my needs. I would have no hesitation in recommending them to friends. The premises are always spotlessly clean & well kept.

D Burt

A quintessential dental service which operates wholly in the interest of the patient. Very professional, caring, and pleasantly approachable staff, inspire complete confidence in their work. The premises are bright, very pleasantly decorated, and always, spotlessly clean throughout. I will continue to give the excellent Ashwell Dental Services my highest recommendation.

M Mawditt

Friendly hygienist and dentist who don't make me feel terribly ashamed about my fillings! One of the dentists is super with the kids too- very kind and gentle. Email reminder system is good idea.
