Our Testimonials

I just wanted to pass on comments to Helena and Dilen.  I was afraid of the dentist and hygienist for as long as I can remember.  I had to go as one of my crowns had become loose.  

Right away from calling Slateford Dental I was put at ease from the receptionist.  I met with Helena and she was so patient and understanding.  Helena never made me feel embarrassed at the state of my teeth. Helena put an action plan together for me to work on getting my gums and teeth healthy again.  I so appreciated her understanding.  

Then I met Dilen the hygienist… again I was so nervous and scared of this visit.  Once again I was made to feel ok and Dilen was so understanding.  He was very good and I could not believe how my teeth feel and look  now.  Dilen has explained on how to look after my teeth and showed me products that would help me in getting healthy gums.  I have even booked in my next appointment with Dilen.  I chose your dental clinic from the testimonials on the web and wanted to share my experience. Thanks

The dental work I have received from Helena Johanson has been first class. The experience was actually relaxing which is quite unbelievable considering my initial apprehensions. Helena and Diane are a great team and all the work I have received has been perfect. I can almost say that I look forward to my dental work.

Since joining Slateford Dental Care two years ago I have been extremely happy with the professional expertise given to me by my dentist Dawn Louden and Dental Hygienist Alison. Initially requiring some quite substantial treatments after having not visited a dentist in quite a few years I was carefully guided through the whole process in a professional and sensitive manner. Procedures and costs were explained very clearly and most importantly the work, including root canal and crown treatment were carried out to an excellent standard. Overall my expectations have been met and surpassed and would recommend Slateford Dental care to everyone.

I feel very fortunate to have found Kelda Richardson. Her treatment is always very caring and sensitive and I wholeheartedly recommend her to anyone who feels nervous visiting the dentist. My husband, my father and my two daughters attend Kelda too and they really appreciate her warm and professional manner. Thank you Kelda!

Dawn is brilliant at tooth repair and fillings. She is very gentle but professional.

The treatment and care from Dawn and her Dental Nurse is both professional and friendly. She explains fully the treatment that is needed and does all she can to preserve my teeth and prevent further problems.

Alison has always made me feel at ease, being quite a nervous patient and I have no problems visiting the hygienist. I have very sensitive teeth and Alison always takes this into consideration by using the manual implements for scaling. I would recommend Alison very highly.

M Webster
After many years of fearing the trips to the dentist Stephen has finally helped me to overcome my phobia. I would recommend the surgery (& Stephen!) to anyone - and indeed have. His patience is second to none.

J Brenner
I had not been to the dentist for a number of years and was terrified about coming to get my teeth seen to. Having taken the step to come to Slateford Dental Care Alison and Kelda have guided me through my treatment. They calmed me down and through explaining each step and looking after me have enabled me to overcome my fear, keep my teeth in order and attend regularly. I would never have I would be able to say it but I look forward to my visits thanks to the care attention of both Alison and Kelda.

The dental care I have received from Helena Johanson has been exemplary. She is always very professional and skilled in ensuring that I am relaxed and comfortable. Any procedures to be undertaken are always explained clearly and concisely. She takes great care to make sure that I feel no pain! I know that any concerns I may have will be dealt with promptly and sympathetically. I feel safe in her hands.

As a result of a really traumatic accident whereby I fell backwards into a concrete basement I broke and damaged my two front teeth and the one the left.The teeth were badly traumatised and it took the best part of year to get them to a pain free state. During this time Dawn was so gentle, so reassuring and so professional in delivering the necessary dentistry.

I also received cosmetic work to repair my teeth. To say that the transformation was brilliant is not enough. The results are TRULY AMAZING and they look FANTASTIC! I cannot thank Dawn and the rest of the dedicated team enough. Dawn has given me back the confidence I had before the accident.
I would say to everyone that there is no need to get yourselves to L.A. for dental cosmetics - we are lucky enough to have Slateford Dental Care on our doorstep!

I have never experienced pain and the minimum amount of discomfort and always come away with the feeling of reassurance that everything is ok and absolutely trust that everything has been done exceptionally well.
