The experience we have had with our dentist has been fantastic. When we first came to Hucknall Dental Clinic my daughter wouldn't even sit in the dentist chair, she was so scared. The dentist has helped her overcome this fear with amazing patience and kindness that would not and was not being received from our current dentist. One year ago I was so worried as a parent about how my daughter would cope with her fear and was worried about how to get her to have her filling, it seemed impossible. My daughter was brave today and got through her filling and now has good healthy teeth and this would not have happened if it wasn't for the care and patience of our wonderful dentist. Thank you so much, this service has been so valuable to us.

Thankyou for taking the time to share your experience of having treatment at Hucknall.I am pleased to see that your daughter is now more comfortable with having treatment. I hope this will continue to become easier for her as she builds her confidence with the dental team at Hucknall. I will ensure that this is fed back to the team.
