So good to have a caring and attentive dentist at last. All staff very friendly and helpful.

Mrs KMc - Lochthorn Dental Clinic

“Met Carissa the new dentist today and can honestly say she has a great bed side manner. Felt so relaxed with her. My dentist Allan was off so saw Carissa as an emergency. Could not fault this dentist surgery and now I am in good hands with Allan or Carissa after bad experiences at other dentist surgeries.”

Miss LH - Lochthorn Dental Clinic

“Both my partner and I were really impressed with the care we received from all the staff we came into contact with at Lochthorn Dental Clinic. I honestly can’t recommend them highly enough, they were thorough, sensitive and seemed incredibly passionate about the work they do. Thanks so much!”

Mr. LD - Lochthorn Dental Clinic

“Alan and his staff are brilliant, friendly, informative and extremely welcoming, excellent in their chosen profession and would recommend them to all.”

Miss JK - Lochthorn Dental Clinic

“Absolutely wonderful young man and his staff. It makes it a pleasure to visit the dentist!! Long may it continue.”

Mrs JH - Lochthorn Dental Clinic

“When you have a phobia of going to the dentist it makes it so much easier when the dentist (Allan Matthews) takes time to show proper professionalism and exceptional patient care that helps ease that stress and can even get a smile from you. His dental nurse is such a bubbly and friendly personality makes your visit so much easier thanks guys I would recommend this dental practice to anyone especially those with a phobia as they say ‘laughter is the perfect medicine’ keep up the good work and thanks for being patient with me.”

Ms A - Lochthorn Dental Clinic

“Had my first appointment with Carissa and Holly this morning and as a (slightly) nervous dental patient, I couldn’t be happier with the friendly and approachable serviceable service I received. Both are a credit to the team. Thanks for making my dental appointment so pleasant. Happily (and have) recommended.”
