Thank you to Clare the hygienist at Bethcar Dental practice for your amazing care today. Not only did Clare do an amazing job with my teeth (scrape and polish), she also provided excellent education and was genuinely interested in caring for my teeth and gum health. Clare was very warm and friendly but also extremely professional and put me at ease. The receptionists were also extremely welcoming. I would definitely recommend Bethcar Dental Practice

I would not hesitate in recommending Bethcar Dental Practice. The service my family and I have received has been outstanding. The ladies on reception are very helpful and friendly and go above and beyond to provide excellent customer service. Dr Laura Wedge and her assistant are very professional. They have provided excellent dental and aesthetic services. Laura’s calm and patient manner helped to calm my anxiety and gave me the confidence to ahead with procedures, and she always does a wonderful job. I was particularly impressed when I received a reply to a message sent on social media on a Sunday evening to arrange an emergency appointment for my daughter the following morning. Thank you Bethcar Dental!

I have been registered with this practice for a number of years and cannot praise them enough. The receptionists are always polite, helpful and informative and the staff are second to none. I have recently had some extensive work carried out by my Dentist (Laura Wedge) and I cannot fault my experience in any way. Both Laura and her dental nurse (Natalie) are highly competent at what they do and are also fun to be in the company of which actually makes going to the dentist a pleasure. I would highly recommend Bethcar Dental to anyone seeking a dentist as there are none better in my opinion

We have just joined the practice after numerous let downs from our previous dentist. WOW! We were greeted by lovely,smiling receptionists and a friendly environment. When we saw our dentist (Laura Wedge),both her and the nurse were so kind to our children and letting them see everything and explaining it all. They were patient and made it all fun. My husband and I left feeling reassured we were receiving the best dental care and we both had a very clear understanding of what was what. I cannot recommend enough!
