“Very friendly orthodontist. Rang to sort out my permanent retainer which had started to wear out after about 10 years, saw me as a new patient 2 hours later. Really don't like getting work done on my teeth but he made me feel very relaxed. Overall a much better experience than what I had with my previous orthodontist. Would definitely recommend.”
