Good question - here is a recent testimonial:
Dear Josef and team at Cathedral Dental Practice,
I came to you for treatment for a wisdom tooth and abscess on July 26th and must thank you all for the superb work done, so carefully and expertly, and quietly. Set at ease as ever by Caroline in Reception and by the kind dental nurse I felt very comfortable. I did appreciate the nurse warning me of potential noise of instruments being used and also noticing that the injections were wearing off.
I was well looked after throughout. I felt very little when the wisdom tooth came out and the left stitching was incredible, all in quite a small mouth at a difficult angle.
Thank you also to Katalin for spotting the potential problem in the crown of the wisdom tooth. I am just very grateful that there are such wonderful dentists and staff at Cathedral Dental Practice.
