When I first went for an appointment at Rochester Lodge, I made sure that the dentist knew that I hated dentists and all the procedures! Nearly 12 years later, I can honestly say I have no qualms about my visits - whether check-ups or procedures. There is a really nice, friendly, professional atmosphere from the moment you step inside the door; the receptionists are delightful and helpful; and, apart from when the dentist is doing something inside my mouth (and he approaches my mouth really considerately!) I enjoy the friendly chats that evolve during the time in 'the chair'. In fact, I look forward to going!!
