Clear, concise on treatment options
I have only seen Mr Gray once as he is new to the practice. I went with a damaged tooth which needs a crown. Mr Gray went through the options and prices in a way that allowed me to make an informed decision about my treatment.

Nothing but praise for Abbey Dental
I transferred to Abbey dental care a few years ago & so glad I did. The reception staff are lovely & helpful & today I met my new dentist. Dr Gray. Don't think I'm going to be as nervous in the future; he was very thorough kind & gentle.(his assistant nurse is lovely too). Thank you.

A thorough dentist
It was Mr Gray's first day at the practice and all the dental health checks he carried out as routine were so thorough, reminded me of when I used to go to a private practice. He instilled me with confidence that he would provide the best care for my teeth. Very kind and reassuring nature. Walked out with a smile on my face.

Extremely friendly service
Extremely friendly service as soon as you walk into reception. Appointments are usually on time. Mr O'Neill always greets his patients in the waiting room and escorts them to surgery and back later after treatment. Explains everything in detail.

Excellent service
I broke a tooth in France and rang for appointment when I returned. Staff, as always, were very helpful. Whilst still in France I was texted with an offer of a quicker appointment which worked out well. The staff are always caring and listen to what you say. I am very happy with the service I have received so far.

First appointment at this practice with Dr Bonner. Previously saw Dr Bonner at his previous dental practice and always trusted him and felt comfortable going to the dentist. He is a lovely, caring, very professional dentist, probably the best I have ever had. Whole practice is professional as well. So pleased to have made the move here.

Good customer service for Denplan
Mr O'Neill is a good professional and engaging dentist who always treats me with care and respect. My only concern is that as a Denplan patient I am treated differently from NHS patients. We get a better waiting room and sometimes staff speak to NHS staff less respectfully than private patients. I am not a better person just because I can afford private treatment. All patients deserve equal treatment and respect

Abbey Dental Care replied on 31st May 2017:
We treat all of our patients with dignity, care and respect.. All of our team have received a high standard of customer service training, and treat everybody equally regardless of how their treatment is funded.. One of our primary aims is to ensure all of our patients receive the highest possible standards of care. If you witnessed a member of staff speaking to a patient in a manner not meeting this goal, we would encourage you to contact the practice directly to discuss your concerns, and allow us to investigate the incident. We are a very busy practice and see lots of patients everyday. As a result we have 3 different waiting areas, and patients are asked to seat in a specific waiting area dependent on which surgery they are bring seen in. We aim to make each waiting area a pleasant environment for our patients to spend time in. Again if you feel any of our waiting areas are not up to standard, we would welcome any feedback you may have.

Extremely caring hygienist
Donna put me totally at ease as I am quite a nervous person. She told me everything she was going to do before she started. She put me totally at ease, what an amazing lady. I would totally recommend her to everyone I know. If going to the dentist could be a pleasure, well my visit to see Donna and her assistant was just that. An absolute pleasure. From a very relaxed, at ease patient, you are both amazing.

Same day crown and implant.
I recently had a crown done at the practice. the great thing is it was all done in one visit. I also have had an implant done at the practice, what I thought was going to be an uncomfortable experience turned out to be the most comfortable treatment I've ever had. the implant feels just like a normal tooth.

Very patient, excellent service
I do not usually enjoy a trip to the dentist especially when a filling is involved. This is the second time I have seen Dr Ramona and she was brilliant. She had time to talk through my treatment and took an additional Xray as I had advised her of a separate issue. Throughout the treatment she was very gentle and precise and worked in tandem with her assistant. I did not feel rushed at any stage.

Calm, considerate
The morning I telephoned I was immediately put at ease by the receptionist. I was in pain and she ensured I was given an appointment that morning. Everyone int he surgery were warm and welcoming and tried to make me feel at ease and that all would be well. The dentist, James Bonne, was very considerate and made sure I knew exactly what was needed to make me well and ensured he did it in a calm and considerate manner, thus making me relax and be as comfortable as possible. The outcome was good and today, a day later, I am in no pain after 2 weeks of suffering.

Good emergency service
On the occasions when myself or family member has required urgent dental attention we have always been seen very quickly and dealt with efficiently.
10th October 2016

Very caring, understanding dentist
I have had several bad experiences with dentists over time and this resulted in me not trusting any of them. This meant that I had not visited a dentist for several years. My teeth were in desperate need of treatment but the dentists I has visited for quotes were only interested in giving me the perfect smile, not looking after my oral health in general and dealing with these problems before starting any kind of treatment on my teeth. Dr O'Neill was not one of these dentists and gave me a full honest brief of what was required and a genuine cost for the treatment. My trust grew on each appointment and the extreme anxiety I had always felt eased. Over 14 appointments Dr O'Neill did give me back the confidence to smile again without being embarrassed.

Brilliant with nervous patients
After a lot of orthodontal work and jaw surgery I was very nervous about having any work done. I was told by a previous dentist I needed fillings but she did not understand that I was nervous and was quite sharp with me. I got referred to hospital for sedation but there was issue after issue. I searched online for a private clinic and found Abbey Dental Care. Dr O'Neill has been nothing but fantastic with me, always patient, always checking that i am alright with any work he does, even if it is just to check my teeth with a mirror. If anyone is nervous to have dental work done I could not recommend this dentist enough.

Welcoming and efficient
The practice is welcoming and efficient. The dentist listened to what I had to say, gave my teeth a thorough assessment and patiently explained the problems to me, and the course of action he could take. The choice was mine but he gave me all the information I needed to make the choice of treatment.

Caring, friendly, informative
A very caring, friendly and informative dentist. The dentist explained everything that was going to happen at my check up, he put me at ease straight away. I am very pleased with my check up, it was very thorough and it was explained what was included in the cost. Also he explained an alternative treatment that I could have to my teeth to deal with some slight staining, I was informed that this would be private treatment but did not try to talk me into it which I find really good.

Emergency appointment
Needed an emergency appointment and was told to come to surgery and sit and wait. I was actually seen within minutes and diagnosed with an abscess. I was asked what I wanted to do when the abscess had healed and felt the decision was mine. As always the dentist was excellent, compassionate, professional. Reception staff are good too.

New dentist
Changing dentist was a great worry to me. I moved from Blackpool over years ago and still returned every six months for check ups. I knew it was time to find a new dentist and looked up Abbey Dental Care on my laptop. From the moment I spoke to the Practice Manager I felt better, she put me at ease. My initial examination went well and when I returned for a filling and scrape and polish I felt at ease. It was all painless and I was clam. This is a great relief to me.

So very nice and gentle
I have been afraid of dentists since my school days. I started going to Abbey Dental Care when I returned to Selby, I was still very afraid even in my 50's, but then my dentist left Dr Ramona came and I am no longer afraid. She always puts you at ease, she talks you through everything she does. I had to have fillings but I was not afraid, she is very nice, all the staff are. My sister and her family have the same dentist as me and they think the same, I find her so very nice and gentle. So now I am happy and I am not afraid anymore and I have perfect teeth.

4th February 2016

An inspired move
After 40 years with the same dental practice in York, I transferred to Abbey Dental Care so that I could continue to be treated by the same dentist who had moved there. I would recommend this practice not only because I think my dentist is very professional and caring, but also the reception staff are competent, friendly and obliging.

Dr Sharma and Kay!
I recently came in to have some work done on my teeth and Dr Sharma and Kay were fantastic! Dr Sharma was so thorough and caring and ensured I was ok throughout the whole procedure. Both Dr Sharma and Kay were very friendly and professional with a great sense of humour which definitely eased my nerves! They were also amazing with my 2 year old son who now keeps asking to go to the dentist(!). They are an asset to the practice! Thank you both for a surprisingly pleasant visit! Katie.

Dentistry at its best
After a wonderful experience today and superb service from Abbey Dental for some years, it is a delight to have a chance to go public with my compliments. Like most in public service these days, dental practices are under pressure yet, with all the pressures, frustrations and stress, every member of staff at Abbey Dental are always pleasant, helpful and courteous. Receptionists always try to meet patient needs and the dentists, without exception, are always willing to discuss treatment and options with patience and professional interest, even when they are running late. I am always happy to accept delay for no urgent treatment but more impressed when the need is urgent as has happened several times. There is a magic at Abbey Dental where, in spite of all the pressures and time limits there is always a slot for an urgent need. Just today, having some discomfort from a broken tooth, I was invited to wait, perhaps for some time, hoping a dentist could see me. Within half an hour I was being treated with the usual interest, advice, helpful comment and treatment for my problem. This is dentistry at its best. My molars are in their eighth decade and enough for my needs have survived, largely thanks to the magic of Abbey Dental. My thanks to them, one and all.

Quick & Pain-Free
Experiencing a lot of pain with a sensitive tooth. Dr. O'Neill from Abbey Dental Care recommended a root filling in order to solve the issue. I was apprehensive about the procedure, but there was nothing to worry about. It was quick, pain-free and honestly the best filling I'v ever had. The was no pain after the numbness wore-off and I was eating and drinking normally just hours after. Amazing!
