"Kingswalk Dental Implant Practice fixed my smile after my teeth were damaged playing Rubgy for the University team. It was no mean feat as I have a huge fear of needles but they treated me well and I will be using them again and again."

"Having lost my trust in dentistry after some difficult years, with poor dental health and severe jaw pain, I doubted that anyone could help me and I was very unhappy.
However, from my very first visit to KDIP my fears were dispelled by Lesley and everyone working there. They all put me at my ease with their friendly and professional manner. Lesley is a most skilled practitioner, and her positive and empathic approach instills confidence.
I was also impressed by the high standards of hygiene throughout the practice, the quality of the equipment in the surgery and the competent use of technology.
After many months of complex root canal work, crowns, a bridge and work to correct my bite, I am free of pain and able to smile again. I can honestly say I felt relaxed throughout my treatments knowing that every procedure was restoring my health and wellbeing.
Many friends and family have commented on the improvement in my appearance and I have unreservedly recommended KDIP to them all.
Grateful thanks to you all."
"I have long thought that the best recommendation is from someone you know who has used services like dentistry and is very happy with the treatment and care - and willing to pass that satisfaction on to others so they may benefit. That is how I came to "The Kingswalk Dental Practice" nine years ago. The friend who recommended me is still a patient.
When I first attended I was very impressed with the high tech equipment used. Kingswalk Dental Practice are still at the cutting edge of advanced equipment used and technological awareness: an example is the appointment reminder service via your mobile phone, it is brilliant. These are areas which make me feel very happy with the total care I receive.
All of the staff at "Kingswalk" care, from the warm smile of the receptionist to the dentist and dental assistants treating you - you feel special. They are so professional and capable in what they do.
I have had many types of treatment over nine years as a patient and in all cases I was aware of what was to happen and all completed to my satisfaction.
The Kingswalk Dental practice meets all of my user needs appertaining to dentistry.
Although I no longer live in Newcastle I happily travel back for treatment, it is a social occasion meeting all of the long serving staff and having a chat.
I do, and will continue to, recommend them as a dental practice with the highest standards of treatment and after care. Using the latest equipment to maintain the very highest standard of treatment."

"I have had problems with my teeth for the whole of my adult life. All my teeth are crowned and I have had several painful infections in the past. When I lost two teeth to the front of my mouth I was devastated. I could not tolerate the thought of an upper denture for the rest of my life. My own dentist referred me to the Kingswalk Dental Implant Practice. For the price of a good holiday I now have what looks like two perfect teeth in that space.
The greatest satisfaction comes from the completely natural look of the implants and the bonus that there will be limited reduction in the gum level which is so much better than that experienced with a crown and of course the knowledge that unless there is some catastrophe the implants are for life.
The actual operation was maybe slightly unpleasant but certainly not painful and no effort was spared to ensure that I was as comfortable as possible throughout. The procedure was very well explained and Lesley went to great lengths to ensure I understood every part of the procedure and what could be expected. It was also made so easy by the approachable manner and the professionalism of Lesley Cave who emanated confidence in the procedure, something you definitely want when undergoing treatment of which you have no previous experience.
Having had so many problems with the crowns which the implant replaced the end result is marvelous and I would have no hesitation in going through the whole procedure again if and when other crowns fail. If I win the lottery I would have a full set of implants with out a moments hesitation."
"I have been with the Kingswalk Dental Practice for over ten years and I am very pleased with the professional and friendly service that they provide. Several years ago I had to get several dental implants done, and the treatment sounded rather scary to me in the beginning. I am glad to say that after discussions and consultations with the team, I felt very confident that everything would be all right, and the surgery did go very smoothly indeed. They also provide excellent aftercare to make sure that the implants are trouble-free. Among others, I visit the hygienist regularly and I have check-ups every six months. These treatments help me a lot to maintain a healthy oral hygiene. I also enjoy the friendly chit-chat I have with the staff whenever I visit the practice. From my experience, I wholeheartedly recommend the Kingswalk Dental Practice to anyone who is looking for a great dentist in general, and in particular to anyone who is thinking about getting some implants done."
"...thank you so much for your patience and manner with me and making hat tooth extraction, which is something I have put off for many years, a easy and painless procedure. I am really very very thankful."
This has been my dental practice for over 20 years. The highest standards of patient care and treatment have been maintained throughout this time. All of the staff are professional and show genuine interest in patient well being. They respond to routine and emergency needs with compassion and professional integrity.
My most recent visit, which has prompted me to write my review, has been for root canal treatment. Although I am never terrified of dental treatment, the prospect of this complicated procedure did make me nervous. I had had any potential complications explained to me at the first appointment, and worried that this could be a long and stressful treatment. The initial appointment has been lengthy; however the calm, reassuring atmosphere of the treatment room, the way in which staff contacted me to offer an early appointment as soon as a cancellation occurred and the way in which I have been informed about each stage of the procedure meant that the whole experience has been relatively relaxing, very reassuring and (so far) uncomplicated. I feel very fortunate to have such a high quality NHS resource available to me.
