“I approached Widcombe Dental Practice after seeing an advertisement for Invisalign Braces. I had been unhappy about the way my teeth looked for years and would often cover my mouth when laughing or smiling. After an initial consultation, where the treatment was explained in full, I was given time to think it over before I made any commitment. Once I decided to go ahead I’ve never looked back. It has changed my life and I should have gone for the treatment sooner.
I give many thanks to the Widcombe Dental Practice for giving me the confidence to trust Invisalign which gave me the smile I’ve always wanted.”
“I required 21 braces (42 weeks) and the weeks flew by. The results were almost immediate. There was little discomfort and once in the habit of wearing them I almost forgot I had them in. My oral hygiene improved as I was flossing and rinsing more often. Most people didn’t even realize I had braces. The whole process was an amazing transformation, even including a whitening treatment at the end. Dr. Vivian and his staff were always friendly and and happy to answer any queries along the way. Its definitely given me more confidence and I smile much more. My only regret was not doing it much sooner. Thank you so much.”
“I have been a patient at Widcombe Dental Practice for a couple of years now and whilst I have always been impressed with Paul’s calm, professional and reassuring manner on this occasion I needed root canal treatment. I developed a rampant toothache and the appointment diagnosis was quickly made, Paul explained the entire process to save the tooth, he removed the offending nerve, cleaned and applied a temporary filling. My toothache immediately went. I mentioned my treatment to a couple of friends who (as helpful friends are) warned me the procedure was far from over and that they wouldn’t want to be in my shoes recalling their personal horror stories! Well, at the follow-up appointment I hid my apprehension as Paul again reassuringly explained what needed to be done, how and what the inside of the tooth would be filled with etc. I need not of worried. The entire procedure was undertaken with care and professionalism, Paul worked efficiently with his dental nurse and ensured that I was comfortable throughout and used the latest equipment and techniques. The procedure was over with minimum discomfort, a final x-ray was taken and Paul showed me the before and after images. I am writing this only an hour after treatment and have already joked with one of my ‘helpful friends’ that he too should make his way to Widcombe Dental Practice if he wants to enjoy the benefit of the best dental treatment and care in Bath. I am overjoyed with the result. Thank you, Paul and the team!”
“A lovely modern practice with friendly and helpful staff. Very impressed with my recent treatment. Paul got me out of pain and made my tooth look perfect again. Can’t thank them enough.”
“I have just finished my Invisalign treatment at Widcombe Dental Practice and I’m so happy with the result. The process was friendly, professional and more straightforward then I thought it was going to be. Highly recommended!”
“I love this dental practice. Everyone is very welcoming and friendly. It is clean and very modern. Dr Paul is very talented and professional. His equipment is state of the art. I recently had my crown made using the 3d scanner and it’s perfect. I thoroughly recommend this practice to anyone looking for top end dentistry and facial aesthetics.”
“I recently went to the Widcombe Dental Practice after winning a free express HydraFacial, the staff are so friendly and lovely! A very welcoming and cosy practice, I walked out feeling amazing afterwards. Thank you so much!”
“I felt compelled to write a review as I have had such a positive experience with all aspects of my care here. The reception staff are efficient while the Dental care is professional with time always taken to make you feel comfortable. I recently had a tooth extraction at the surgery and while I don’t think anyone would describe this as a particularly pleasant experience, it really was fine! Again, the procedure was quick and painless and the whole process was explained to me which meant that I was genuinely relaxed throughout. Good advice was also provided about aftercare and I was reassured that I could contact the dentist at any time should I have problems (although I barely had any discomfort or bleeding).
I would certainly recommend this practice, I have already booked to have further dental work here and feel very confident in the quality of care I will receive.”
“I just wanted to say to you and the nurse thank you for a pleasant experience and for removing the stains at the end of the appointment.”
“The ultimate dental experience. First-rate in every way. A brilliant team. I highly recommend Widcombe Dental Practice – you will be in good hands and come out with a big smile!”
A lovely dental practice offering a very friendly, personal and professional service. If only I’d found them years ago I’d have been able to avoid lots of repair work on my teeth. Even though I could claim free treatment during pregnancy/ maternity, I chose to continue to pay here because of the trust I have the dental team and the great experience they offer.
“I had been considering having Botox for some time as I knew it would help with softening crows feet around my eye area. I like to look natural and was concerned that people would notice that I had the procedure done. Taking the plunge and not looking back, everyone keeps telling me how well I look but nobody has mentioned the B word, a few people have also taken the plunge after being impressed with my new younger, relaxed look. Paul is a true professional he takes photos and discusses in detail how you would like to look and always likes to see you two weeks later to make sure you are happy with your results.”
“I had braces when I was a teenager and didn’t wear my retainers for long enough, resulting in most of my teeth going out of line, most noticeably my top front tooth. It was only when my partner and I got engaged that I decided I needed to do something about my teeth. For years I’d been smiling with my mouth closed in photographs and I wanted a natural smile for our wedding day photos.
I went in for a free consultation where Paul talked me through the options available and I decided to go with six-month smiles on both top and bottom teeth. I was scheduled with the hygienist before fixing the braces – she is one of the most gentle, calming and brilliant hygienists I’ve ever had. She’s very conscious of your comfort during a generally uncomfortable procedure which makes a massive difference. Paul and his team of great assistants fixed my braces and advised me on foods I should avoid – Paul was extremely conscientious, even calling me that evening to check all was okay with my first day of braces.
It was easier for me having experienced braces before so I felt used to the tightness fairly quickly. The braces are clear and some people didn’t even notice I had them until we’d been speaking for a while. A shop assistant even remarked on how discreet they were, which was really important to me as I didn’t feel overly conscious of them. I also loved that Paul didn’t judge that I hadn’t worn retainers as a teen. In fact, he completely understood and I was hugely relieved. Each visit to have the braces tightened was fine, with the reception team being super friendly and welcoming asking for updates on the wedding. Paul was always a calming presence when in the dreaded dentist chair, and within six months my problem top tooth had straightened out wonderfully. My bottom teeth were a bit more stubborn and Paul tweaked the braces in various ways over appointments to get the results until it was time for them to finally come off! Impressions were taken, and I have a lower fixed retainer, a final visit with the wonderful hygienist, and finally, my retainers arrived. Paul showed me how to put the whitening agent into them and advised on the length of wear and what to do if I lose or break them. The whole team is really amazing, Paul and especially the receptionists are so accommodating with appointments and I felt so at ease every visit. I’ve had my braces off for a month or so now and I’m so so happy that when I take photos with friends I can give a big wide smile and no have to worry. I can’t wait for my wedding and the photos now! I’d recommend the practice and team to anyone- thanks to all of you and I’ll send you some pics after the wedding!”
