"I had a traffic accident which resulted in me needing emergency work done over a weekend(teeth bonding to replace 2 broken teeth). The staff were very understanding and helpful and within a few hours of my accident I had my smile back again! Really happy with the work and as previously mentioned the staff were really nice and helpful which to me was another big plus!"
