"Care at its best"
"I cannot give enough stars to this practice. I have always been a nervous patient, but the competence and professionalism of the staff at this practice are outstanding, which has enabled me to relax and not fear to go to the dentist as much as I previously did. Patients are treated with dignity and respect as soon as they walk in the door, from receptionist through to dentist and hygienist. If all practices took the same approach as Prettygate dental, everyone would be smiling. :-)"

"I've never felt more comfortable at a dentist before"
"Before I came to this practice I had always had trouble feeling nervous at the dentist. As soon as I walked through the door at Prettygate the staff was wonderfully helpful and calming. The Dentist I had as well was very supporting when I told them I may be nervous and made me feel at home within minutes. I'll definitely be returning."

"Very nice people"
"After finding out I needed a root canal treatment I was devastated, as my previous dentist told me it would cost over 1000 pounds, fortunately, my son googled the treatment and local dentists, Prettygate popped up and at a third of the price! After an initial consult I was sold, the dentist was fantastic and very caring, I would absolutely recommend, still can't believe how much cheaper they are!"
