Would like to say a HUGE thank you

Would like to say a HUGE thank you to Gordon, had to have two front teeth removed which I had hung on to for ages and was so nervous to have done, He treated me with respect and gentleness and has given me back a smile I am happy with. Put my complete trust in this man and would recommend him and the surgery to any nervous patient.

What a difference an implant makes!

I only had them yesterday but have already noticed how much better I can chew. I wish I’d have had them a long time ago. Each stage along the way was explained to me and in a way that I could understand I was constantly reassured as I was quite anxious as to how I would react to the treatment. I am now planning to have another implant in the near future.

My thanks to Imran and also his right hand, Sammy for doing such a great job. They make an excellent team.

Kind, caring, compassionate dentist you can trust

Having had horrible experiences at dentists as a child I have always been terrified of going to the dentist and avoided it at all costs. But when I had awful dental pain I made an appointment to visit St James Dental practice after my daughters recommended them as being good with anxious patients. The dentist is kind, compassionate, caring and provides information to help you fully understand options for treatment and exactly what is entailed and cost. I was not rushed, and treatment progressed in each appointment at a pace I could cope with. After a few appointment I had had my sore tooth treated, a root canal filling and a cap and had my other crumbling teeth repaired. The dentist was not judgemental of my lack of dentist visits over the years in fact I felt they understood me and my fears. Today I finished all the work needed and found myself asking about cosmetic work on chipped teeth, something I never thought I would consider having done. I think at the age of 57 I can say that so long as I go to my dentist at St James Dental I am not anxious, no more crying with tears running into my ears as dentist drills my teeth. I trust them to help me manage any concerns, and anxieties, listen to me and make me proud of finally having healthy teeth. As well as the dentist the nurses are gentle and professional. Also the reception staff are friendly and helpful. I highly recommend this dental practice and intend to now go regularly for the first time in my life.

My front right tooth had twisted outward and the thought of having adult braces to fix it was daunting. Nicola explained every step of the treatment to me and all costs involved were outlined at the start.

I found the whole experience easy, efficient and I am extremely pleased with the results.

I am so happy I decided to go through with the treatment and would thoroughly recommend Nicola Steel and the St James Dental Practice.

May I take this opportunity of writing to express my gratitude for the exceptional care, support and professional expertise I recently received whilst under your care for the extraction of a wisdom tooth. In the weeks prior to this appointment, I suffered with debilitating anxiety, but your calm and positive reassurance both before and during the procedure helped to alleviate my fears enormously, which was very much appreciated. It is wonderful to be free of pain!

With my sincere and grateful thanks for your care and support. and also thanks to your very helpful reception staff.

For many years I dithered about having my teeth straightened and I was over 60 when I finally took the plunge. I talked it through with Nicki Steel at St James Dental and found her explanations very clear & reassuring. The financial side was also clearly explained, and there were no money surprises or extras later.

When it came to the mould-making and fitting of braces, I can’t speak highly enough of Nicki’s care. 60+ is a bit of an odd age to go for braces, and could have been trickier than with someone younger, but the care I had made it very easy.

I am now very pleased with the results and, for the first time ever, my teeth look straight. If anyone past the first flush of youth is considering orthodontic treatment, my advice is to go for it, and I don’t think you’ll find anyone better than Nicki to provide it.Andy N

I have been visiting St.James Dental for many pleasant years now, and have enjoyed every visit with David and his dental staff. They are all perfection at its best. The staff who organise the visits are superb and very friendly to all patients including young children with parents. This perfectionism is maintained throughout all of my visits over the many years. I am now a member of Denplan, which works very well.

Now that David has retired, I am looked after by the very charming Simi Robbins and her dental assistant. The dental hygienist Ewa is also excellent. Many Congratulations to you all. Keep the hard work going for many years to come.

Moved to this dentist after a very bad experience at previous practice. I was very nervous but Simi has made me feel very relaxed Lucy Y

Please can Helen be given a big thank you for her excellent work and care during my visits – Many thanks, RE (patient of Dr. Helen Willis)

In collaboration with Oliver Stew, we planned work to repair 30 your of damage using new techniques and the minimum of drilling! Although it needed many sessions the end result is a natural and comfortable ‘new’ set of teeth I am confident will last for a long time. There was plenty of communication throughout the whole process, so I always knew what was going on and what to expect – Thank you. DJ -patient of Dr Oliver Stew

The best dental practice I have been to. GL

Thanks to Karen (hygienist) and Helen once again for a very pleasant visit – like seeing ‘old friends’. Always a pleasure DC – patient of Dr Helen Willis

As a child I had really bad experiences with the “school dentist”, because of this I have been terrified of any dental visits. Oliver and Karen are exceptional; they have helped me through my fears. LH – patient of Dr Oliver Stew

Excellent consultation by Gordon. Explains the options and costs but doesn’t push – allows discussion and time to consider. Sets out the options for the future. DS – patient of Dr Gordon Carey

Nicki (orthodontist) had completely transformed by smile. She is extremely dedicated and has a wonderfully calming and compassionate attitude. Highly recommended – thank you. HP – patient of Dr Nicky Steel

At nearly 30 I was a little apprehensive about braces but Nicki talked me through my options and put me completely at ease. My treatment was pain-free and people didn’t even notice the brace! I’m so thrilled with the result. I love my smile now and would not hesitate to recommend her to anyone. KP – patient of Dr Nicky Steel

It’s a miracle; I have worn the device every night since I had it fitted. My wife and I now get a brilliant night’s sleep, it was worth every penny. Somnowell (snoring device) patient of Dr. Gordon Carey

Gordon has been my dentist for many years, can’t fault him, always exceptional service. Don’t ever leave the practice Gordon. Josie Hawkins

I have been a patient for many years and travel across from Cheltenham. An amazing surgery who are polite, professional and Gordon is a brilliant dentist who has saved several of my teeth! Highly recommended! Catherine Gardiner

My daughter had a dental emergency today. Alix kindly saw her and with much patient managed to work on her tooth. She was brilliant with my daughter and very patient – Thank you SD – patient of Dr Alix Mathewson

Dr Imran Nasser is highly skilled, efficient, personable with a sense of humour and kind. SH – patient of Dr Imran Nasser

I can say now, in all honesty, that my teeth have never looked better, and no-one would every guess that my two front teeth are not my original teeth. I have Dr. Imran Nasser to thank for this and I am enormously grateful that I was able to benefit from his outstanding skills. Throughout my many visits, he never lost sight of the importance to me of my appearance, and his attention to detail was tremendously reassuring to me. The end result is fabulous. MB – implant patient of Dr Imran Nasser

Imran and his assistants are a conscientious and talented team. The procedure was completely pain-free and was done with utmost care. RD -implant patient of Dr Imran Nasser

I attended St James Dental for teeth whitening and two front veneers. I couldn’t be happier with the outcome and can feel good about smiling again. It has really boosted my confidence. SJ – patient of Dr Oliver Stew

The whole process was great with Simi at St James, from my first consultation through to my actual treatment. Simi was very kind and patient; she talked me through each stage to ensure I was relaxed and happy to go ahead with the treatment. Sedation patient of Dr. Simi Robbins

Simi gave me the confidence to book and come back for my second treatment. I would go as far as saying I was almost looking forward to it as it was such a relief to know I was in such good hands. sedation patient of Dr. Simi Robbins

Has resulted in persistently better night’s sleep for me and my partner. Somnowell patient of Dr Gordon Carey

Having lived with a horrible set of teeth all my life, I was finally spurred into action when I received an email from St.James Dental. I would usually ignore these but thank goodness I didn’t. I’d also spent the first half of my life being terrified of dentists but when I’d got over that, I kept asking if technology had got to the stage of straightening my teeth without me looking like Jaws from James Bond. Until I got that email, no-one was able to offer me a solution. Right from the start, Nicola made the whole experience so easy and pleasant. She instilled such confidence and it all felt so safe and was certainly completely painfree. My only regret is that I would love to have done this years ago – 55 years of not smiling properly is a hard habit to break but I’m getting used to laughing out loud and baring a huge smile. Thank you so much Nicola. Patient of Nicola.

I couldn’t recommend Nicola highly enough she really does her utmost best for you.
Nicola is a lovely, softly spoken, understanding person. Very thorough in her explanation of the treatment/plan. You can ask her anything and she will reassure you. I have very sensitive teeth and Nicola went the extra mile to ensure I was never in any discomfort from the start of my treatment, right until my braces were removed.
You can’t fault her after care either always at the end of the phone for any worries or quick appointment.  I couldn’t recommend Nicola high enough she really does her utmost best for you.
