Going to the dentist was something I used to dread; but not anymore. I have just had 2 dental implants fitted with the minimum of discomfort by Dr Khanna who works with a steady hand and calm assurance. I didn’t even have to leave the practice to have a CT scan on my jaw.
I have, unfortunately, had to have a lot of dental work over the years but none has been better than the treatment I have received at Church Stretton Dental Practice, to the extent that my dental health has never been as good as it is now. The staff all make the experience as relaxed as possible and I have recommended the Practice to a number of friends.
Having attended many appointments at Church Stretton Dental Practice over the last few years, I have found my children and I are always treated with professionalism and kindness. I feel safe in the knowledge we are getting the very best of care.
In my experience this is an excellent dental practice. I always get a friendly reception from the reception staff, and helpful responses to any enquiries. On most occasions there is little waiting beyond the appointment time.
Polite, helpful staff, very satisfied with my dental treatment, also with the results of my implant surgery.
This is a kind caring up to date practice from reception through to treatment. Dr. Khanna placed a titanium implant in my front upper jaw four years ago. It is still healthy and I am always thankful that l didn’t have to have a dental plate. It was money very well spent.
Our new dentist has proved very efficient and is very good at giving advice on ways of maintaining good dental health. Our dentist is very positive and always takes dental and other health issues into account. It was a good decision to change to this dentist.
I had my regular check up in January and it was found that I needed a filling.The dentist explained the problem,and cost of the treatment clearly and an appointment was made to have it done at a time that suited me.
The treatment has now been completed and an appointment made for my next check up.As usual the who process was handle in a very efficient and professional manner.
