Excellent care given at short notice- the surgery fitted me in on the day which was a relief. From reception to nursing staff and my dentist I received excellent treatment- really professional. Can’t thank everyone at Crescent dental enough
Karen.A - Feb 2021
I've just moved to this area and found this to be a fantastic dental practice. All the staff are very friendly and welcoming. I've received great care from the Dentist and nurse I saw. Everything was explained to me clearly and they made sure I was happy before proceeding with any treatment.

Much praise and gratitude must go to Mr Lalli and his team for the professional dental care I have recently received. From booking the appointment with Karen, undergoing the treatment administered by Mr Lalli & Brooke to the satisfaction of the end result, yet again I am very appreciative of the high standard of personal care. Thank you so much

Manju.C - March 2021
Don’t know where to start. I honestly can’t thank Mr Lalli enough. He’s given me confidence I’ve never had in my life. After being pushed from pillar to post numerous times, I just accepted that I couldn’t get help. He has fully restored my smile and my happiness. Amazing dentist and truly incredible staff. Can’t thank him and Brooke enough.
Laura.S - March 2021
Absolutely fabulous service, I’m usually a nervous patient but even with Covid I was made to feel relaxed and taken care of. No messing around with booking of appointments, from start to finish Karen at reception explains everything. Her customer service is extremely attentive. No messing about with appointments schedule either, booked straight and by Karen and I was sent a text and email reminder 48 hours before my appointment! Jane, my dentist explained everything and was really reassuring and positive about my future treatment needed. Fab service all round. Thank you
Danielle.B - March 2021
Only been with this practice for about a year, may I say its been amazing. From the receptionist to the dental nurse to the dentist they all make it a very pleasant place to be. They put me totally at ease I'm usually terrified of the dentist but I've been put totally at ease on my last four visits two more to go until treatment is finished.
Lynn.C - March 2021
Today I visited and had to have a tooth removed. I was extremely nervous but was made to feel completely reassured and the whole process wasn't as half as bad as expected. I was checked on all the time and everything was explained in detail. It was actually a pleasant experience. Thank you.

I’ve had excellent service from the practice since they have reopened following Covid closure. All staff, reception and dental assistants are very friendly and helpful. I would particularly like to thank Jane, my dentist. She has taken special care in addressing my dental problems and I feel very comfortable and confident with my treatment. I would highly recommend.

Leanne.E - June 2021
I phoned the dental practice after trying numerous of dental surgeries. I spoke with Karen the practice manager who asked me to send in pictures of the problem with my wisdom tooth. An appointment was booked in and I was given antibiotics and will be returning in 2 weeks for the wisdom tooth to be removed. Overall I was extremely happy with the service.
Sarah.H - June 2021
Suffering from severe contamination OCD, a visit to the dentist is very stressful especially during these times with COVID. I needed to see a dentist so explained my anxieties to the practice manager, Karen. She was very helpful and sensitive to my situation and ensured the dentist knew of my OCD. During my appointment the staff showed me how everything was clean, even a mirror I was handed. I can't thank them enough and would recommend anyone else in my situation to visit this practice.
Ailsa.B - June21
Excellent service from Mr Lalli's team today. After not being able to get an emergency appointment with my own dentist. I contacted Karen and she was brilliant. Very helpful and informative. She was able to give me an appointment this morning which was amazing. Both Mr Lalli and his lovely dental nurse were fantastic too. Thank you for keep checking I was ok and Mr Lalli for "extracting" the problem. I really appreciated your help. Thank you very much for that today, I am out of pain and very happy :-)
Joanne.B - July21
From first ringing the surgery to leaving the surgery after my treatment the very same day, everyone of the staff here could not have been more empathetic, caring and professional - visiting a dentist isn’t a particularly dreamy occasion but this lot make sure it’s as painless and as pleasant as it can possibly be ! Thanks so much !! I hope I don’t need treatment again anytime soon, but if I do I’ll be seeing you !
Stephen.P - July21
Karen the practice manager went over and beyond helping me obtain an appointment when I needed emergency treatment. The full team are extremely patient and caring, they consistently check you are comfortable.
Wendy.W - Aug21
Have been with CD for some years and having been away was really happy they were able to fit me in (privately) the same day to remedy a broken molar. Really pleased that even though we'd dropped off the list they were able to get our son signed back up immediately. Always great staff, friendly and professional, very clean and Covid secure.
Tearlach.D - Sept21
I called the surgery first thing in the morning 30/09/21 as my daughter (4) had damaged her loose tooth. We got seen to the same day after school by Dr Lalli. He took the tooth out as it was very loose anyway with my little one not even knowing he had done it! Stickers followed and plenty gummy smiles. From the minute you enter the surgery to goodbye it is such a warm and personal service. Karen the practice manager has such a lovely way with children and my little one feels at such ease as soon as we enter. Karen is a credit to the practice and we honestly wouldn’t want to go anywhere else. Thank you very much Dr Lalli and the rest of the team for another calm and efficient visit.
Santanna.R - Sept21
Firstly Id like to say that I'm a previous patient from other practises as each time Mr Jaz Ali has moved practises I've followed, The reason for this is because he's so understanding and patient knowing my fears of going to see him. His assistant is also lovely and puts me at ease. I've recently just visited this new practise and was very pleased with the service I received. The practice manager was very polite and attentive as soon as I walked through the door and as always Jaz and his assistant were patient and helped me through my visit. I'm a very nervous patient and literally hate going but I only do this because I know I'm in good hands. If you have any fears whatsoever Mr Ali will be very understanding with you and make you feel most at ease. I will not go anywhere else. Good luck to Jaz on purchasing his very own practise! You deserve it.
Excellent service from Crescent Dental - emergency appointment within a few hours. Professional and friendly welcome from the practice manager Karen, very grateful as I am terrified of the dentist. Clean and covid secure, Mr Lalli and his assistant were professional and kind throughout the consultation. Many thanks to the whole team
Rosalynd.V - Oct 21
I would like to thank Jaz and all the team at Crescent Dental Care for the first class treatment and service we received from the practice. We have been patients of Jaz for the last 10 year and can not recommend his services highly enough. He and the team are the ultimate Professionals making you feel comfortable and confident in what can sometimes be a daunting experience. I would highly recommend anyone to visit Jaz.
