My husband, Haydon, has been a patient at Goldsworth Road Dental Centre Practice since he was a child and when I wanted a second opinion about a problem I was having, he recommended them to me.
My NHS dentist had said I needed root canal treatment on one of my front teeth but I was unsure. You get to know your own mouth and this tooth had been a problem since I was about 10 years old. I used to have a great NHS dentist but she went on maternity leave and never returned, so every six months I would see a different dentist.
Goldsworth Road Dental Centre Practice is lovely and bright, airy, clean and well run by nice people. You see the same dentist and hygienist every time you visit and they know you and your mouth. You can build a relationship and they get to know you personally.
My dentist took one look, took x-rays and said that I didn’t need a root canal but that the problem could be managed with good dental hygiene. All my other teeth are fine but there’s just this one tooth that is a problem.
I would strongly recommend getting a second opinion if something doesn’t feel right because you just don’t know. You get what you pay for with private dentistry – but this practice actually saved me money!
I had never really had a proper hygiene appointment before. I have been seeing Karen the hygienist regularly for a couple of years now and she has taught me how to properly maintain my teeth. Karen has made me see just how important dental hygiene is. Her advice is very clear and she says I am managing to keep up well with my oral hygiene at home.
With all the excellent dentistry and advice from the Goldsworth Road team I haven’t had to undergo any expensive procedures and still haven’t had to spend lots of money, so that’s great!
