I am an extremely nervous patient and they treat me with kid gloves and also offer sedation if i really need it. All the staff have been very welcoming and nothing seems too much trouble. I am now set up on denplan which encourages me to go and keep the visits regular. I am happy to recommend this dentist.
This is an excellent dental practice with high standards of care. All the staff are great.By far the best one I have been to. Would recommend.
Very positive attitude from everyone working there.
This is the best dentist I have visited out of the 4 I have used. The dentist is always pleasent, fully explains any treatment, advises of the cost of any treatment beforehand and of all the available options. When receiving treatment, the dentist has always sought to reduce any discomfort - even fillings are pretty painless. Both the treatment and aftercare are exemplary - after treatment, the dentist has even had the courtesy to phone me later in the day to see if I am alright. I would recommend this practice to anyone who hatea visiting the dentist.
Very satisfied with the quality of care provided. All the staff are very professional in their approach. I have one comment about the way Denplan operates in this practice (which differs from the experience of other family members with other dentists). With the Christchurch practice, the monthly fees just pay for routine check-ups and the hygeinist. Elsewhere they cover basic treatment too (like fillings). The consequence is that the monthly fees at the Christchurch practice are quite expensive for the limited amount they cover.
Always friendly staff and I very seldom have to wait any more than 5 minutes for my appointment. I like being able to combine the hygienist with my check-up to save coming on two days.
I have just completed a course of Invisalign treatment and am delighted with the result. The course required a number of visits to the Practice for new aligners and adjustments. These visits were always pleasant due to the friendliness and efficiency of Dr van Staden and his staff who always made me feel very welcome. I would highly recommend this Practice.
It's always a pleasure to visit the practice. Every one of the staff is always friendly, courteous and helpful. Standards of treatment, needless to say are second to none and everything is thoroughly explained beforehand.
Very quick and easy visit today.
Very friendly and curtious practice, good advice, punctual with literally no wait to be seen. Would highly recommend!
