Aya Crumpler - "Fantastic practice. The staff were all so friendly and happy. My dentist was so nice and took their time with me. Will definitely visit again. Thank you."

I have seen Martin Adeda a few times over two years. The appointments have always been 30min+ late, and when seen by him, I mentioned having some issues and he took a 5 minute look and referred me to the hygienist. I wasn't happy so have been to a different practice and have been told I have chronic gingivitis and need a long term treatment plan as well as some work done, which is what my issue was before. Deeply disappointed and would not recommend at all. Stay away!

This morning I was informed by this dental practice, I am to be excluded from attending any future dental treatment, after missing a handful of appointments. Though I truly understand this can be frustrating and inconvenient, but my situation isn’t that black and white.

Through-out 2017, I spent much of my time In Musgrove Hospital, having kidney surgeries. Which one of these times I ended up in the ICU fighting for my life, after my lungs collapsed.
On the back of these events, I believe to have missed four dental appointments. Which I either called the practice in advance, emailed and on one occasion I arrived at my appointment, but on arrival became immensely sick and informed the receptionist of my situation and later called to re-schedule.

I first attended this dental practice, via the Dental Advice Line to have an emergency tooth out. This was also a negative experience, after nearly passing out in their waiting room. The reception staff member was really vile toward me, and it took the kindness of random, member of the public to prevent me collapsing on the floor in the waiting room, only then did another member of staff intervene to help.

The dentists themselves are brilliant, which is a real shame that it’s so poorly managed by people with zero humanity, nor compassion. That put profit before people.

After speaking to the practice this morning (09/02/18), have concluded the reasoning behind them penalising from this NHS service, boils down to number crunching and completely side-stepping the individual, human means tested situation. In my original review, I stated "The dentists themselves are brilliant" But I take this back, as they appear to be just as toxic as the people whom run this practice. They state I didn't communicate in time, but getting through on the phone in the morning is a challenge, and they rarely reply to emails, maybe they should also take their own advice, when it come to communication. I'd advise anyone needing dental treatment, to look elsewhere with decent humans, that see you as a person and not as a number or a pound sign.

been here 3 times in the last 3 months after being terrified of dentist for many years. Never had a problem with the reception although they are always very busy their always polite.The Dentist has been very patient and friendly and I no longer feel terrified about going to get treatment which I never thought would be the case.

Really unprofessional practice. My partner had work started here and as the dentist left part way through treatment they kept refusing for another dentist to take over....I won't mention that the previous dentist caused damage and severe pain to an otherwise healthy tooth in the process. To get an appointment you usually have to call 10 times as no one ever answers. If you can get an appointment it is not unusual to wait 40 minutes after your alloted time with no apology or communication for the delay. Eventually after arguing with my partner that no dentist in the practice wished to complete the treatment already started by their colleague it was agreed that he could see someone today. The appointment was in the diary and a text was received this morning confirming a completely different time, so after spending ages trying to get through to confirm which appointment time was the correct one the receptionist said that the system is broken and that isn't their fault so he would now be taken off their books for a DNA, which he would have attended if they had answered the phone. Their manner was rude and unprofessional. Avoid this practice. We will be making a formal complaint and also to the CQC

Have attended this dental practice for several years and always found the staff friendly and helpful. Hygienist Karen is knowledgeable and thorough, as well as being quite hilarious! A bonus for any patient.

Cannot get in touch with the practice have been trying all morning. The line is either busy or it rings and then cuts off. I have been trying to book an appointment online and they come up for new members but it says to call the practice for an existing members appointments! This is poor service when it could be an emergency. I understand the dental practise may be busy but cutting someone off the phone line that has taken over 30 mins to get through is not helpful.
