I was very impressed with the treatment I received here. As I visited the clinic on an emergency appointment and in a lot of pain, it was hugely reassuring to find such a friendly, caring and calming practise. The staff were exceptionally kind and I'm so relieved to have found a good practise. I would highly recommend, especially for nervous patients.


" Being total dental phobic i had melt down today before having a filling. The dentist and dental nurse were so kind and patient with me and didnt rush me into getting on with the treatment. I felt no pain through my procedure and im hoping this positive expereince will build my confidence."

" Although i've had a morbid fear of dentists most of my life and tried a handful of them to try and bypass this uncomfortability - none have ever been as friendly, reassuring and welcome as the team at Quayside Dental. From the receptionists, to the dentists and the hygienists - all are warm, friendly and knowledgeable - it makes visiting them an absolute breeze. Thank you!"

" Very enjoyable experience"

Wendy Pyper

"An extremely friendly and bubbly practise. I'm a very very nervous dental patient and they were very reassuring, considerate and understanding about my 10 zillion questions and apprehensions.

A quirky premise ideally located and staffed by some very friendly and giggly staff which puts you at ease. Very polite and courteous and seeing as I was awake half the night before worrying about my treatment I am now wondering what I was fussing about.

The treatment was carried out professionally and not rushed at all, going at the patient's pace and comfort. Not that I'll be looking forward to visiting the dentists again but I certainly won't be worrying about it!"

By Pete

"The reception staff at the surgery are always very friendly, efficient and will go the extra mile for you by asking the dentists advice and phoning you back if you have any queries or concerns.

My dentist is fantastic, really polite and friendly and puts you at ease. They recently removed my wisdom tooth and I was amazed at how quickly and pain they made it for me!

I would definitely recommend this dentist surgery, I have had a lot of dental work done in the past and from now on I would not want to go anywhere else."

"I have been with surgery for 20 years .It was always a helpful and friendly efficient dental practise. But it has become, recently, a very clean spotless and tidy, peaceful place to visit and that makes it much easier. I was very impressed

"I have been a patient at this practice for many years and have found all staff to be unfailingly pleasant and helpful. I have always been very pleased with the advice given and the treatment I've received.Impressive modernisation of an originally dark and creaky listed building has resulted in a light, airy and pleasant environment, and new technology and techniques have greatly improved the speed and efficiency of treatments. Like many people I tend to be rather anxious about visits to the dentist this is as good as it gets!"

I would recommend whole heartedly this dental practice and dentist. I was wary and lacking in confidence about having NHS treatment, as previously had been on Denplan or paid privately. My circumstances changed and chose NHS treatment. This dentist was wonderful; professional, personable and totally competent. My fears about the age of my dentist were also dispelled when they skilfully removed two teeth without any fuss or problem in about a minute! A huge thank you to North Hill Dental.

“Some years ago, having avoided dentists for some time due to fear, I realised I needed to seek professional help for my teeth and gums and was given a leaflet about the practice at the railway station. Since then, my dentist has treated and repaired all areas of my mouth such that I no longer suffer bleeding gums, am confident to smile and can eat more or less anything without difficulty. At all times along the path, I have been consulted about the potential treatment, had extensive written information outlining the pluses and minuses of each aspect of treatment and been very clear about the costs involved. I have always been able to get an appointment quickly with my dentist or one of their colleagues. My dentist is meticulous in all aspects of work a perfectionist who is keen to ensure that their work is of a high standard. I have never ever encountered such a good dentist."

Avril Wright

"An excellent surgery, friendly, helpful and always informative. Recent building works have improved the physical set up, reminders are sent in advance, and all staff are helpful.”

"I have been with this practice since I was a toddler in the 1970s, and the dentist is so friendly and has that warm personal touch that is lacking in modern medicine. I just had my 6 month check-up along with my daughter and thankfully no problems were found. All my family are with this practice and we cannot speak highly enough of all the staff.” 

 Richard Hughes 

“I have been extremely petrified of the dentist for years after many problems and poor work. It had been at least 4 years since my last trip to the dentist and with a lot of work that needed to be completed I was even more scared than ever. The staff at North Hill Dental were extremely good with me and even managed to calm me down. With a few appointments and a lot of work I now have fantastic teeth again.I would highly recommend this dentists and will always be coming back again!!”

“Couldn't be more impressed with the service offered, the procedure was explained extremely well. The ambience of the surgery is very calming coupled with the very helpful staff, this dental surgery has the winning combination.”

"There have been big changes at the North Hill Dental Surgery. For one thing, the previously rather grotty reception area has been given a major facelift and is now stylish and welcoming, and the waiting room has been spruced up as well. Gone is the awful TV in the corner; now you can sit and wait in peace. Everyone is very nice, and they really listen. All of your questions are courteously and honestly answered. And best of all, you're consulted about your treatment at every stage, and the treatment is good. In the last couple of months, I've discovered two things about my teeth that I'd had no idea about before, and both are being expertly dealt with, with my full understanding of the procedures involved and also of the cost.So although going to the dentist isn't something most people look forward to, this surgery makes it all as pleasant as possible."
