I am very happy with this practice. I transferred with my dentist Chameera Fernando to continue treatment at this surgery and the professionalism and treatment I have received is first class. The surgery is very welcoming and any nerves are left at the door. I would strongly recommend this surgery if you would like first class treatment. Harriet the dental nurse with Dr Fernando is so helpful and extremely professional. Very contented patient.
