Byron Elliot“Honesty Dental Practice was recommended to me at a time when I needed an expert dentist and I was referred to Dr Mittal.

I had been unable to manage the pain from some bridge work which my regular dentist had done several months ago. I had attended many consultations regarding this, and seen three different dentists. I had been advised that long term medication for nerve pain was my best option. I was feeling very demoralised, and very unsure how to express myself, but still thought there had to be a better outcome.

From my very first telephone enquiry, and throughout the whole of the treatment which followed I felt everyone at this practice was committed to doing their very best. Dr Mittal’s professionalism is delivered in a friendly relaxed manner. It is important to him that I understand what, why and how things are going to be done, including the possible risks. This part is never rushed and I always feel that there is time for me to fully understand everything and ask as many questions as I need to do. The information he gives is always very clear, and it is illustrated by explaining the diagnostic images. I find this really helps me prepare for the treatment.

Dr Mittal always works in a focused and considered way and at the same time is able to maintain a relaxed and friendly interaction. I have never had to tolerate any pain and I can take as many rest moments as I require. His reassurance is genuine and timely, this has an amazing psychological effect of instilling calm and confidence. His judgement and skill are remarkable. He has achieved results which other dentist did not think were likely. He has redone the work which caused me pain and this time the healing has been successful. I am pain free, happier and as a bonus have a nice glossy smile.

I have now had many appointments and always experienced VIP treatment. Thank you Dr Mittal from the bottom of my heart, and thank you all the team for making me feel so welcome and cared for.” Gillian Warin

“As a patient I am writing to commend Honesty Dental Care for the highest possible all-round treatment and care they offer their patients.

I have needed some extensive dental work which is been carried out by the practice and in all my sixty years I have never been more satisfied with the treatment I have received. The patient liaison co-ordinator and Practice Manager, Carole Denny is very capable, highly efficient and personable. She has had the foresight to employ staff who not only work together exceedingly well as a team but are very professional, caring and attentive to the patients’ needs.

The front of house team, Elaine, Gillian and Lauren are key players in the organisation and nothing is ever too much trouble, be it arranging appointments or offering help and reassurance to the patients’ should it be required. Dr Denny takes a keen interest in all the patients who attend his practice whether he is directly treating them or they are patients of his colleagues. He sets the highest standards which are mirrored in the work of his staff.

The dental nurses, therapists and hygienists are also key people in the practice and I have been so impressed by not only the level of care I have received but their keen interest in the overall welfare of the patients.

Dr Denny and his team seem to have thought of everything to ensure they offer the very best to their patients. Opening hours are such that they take into account the busy lives people lead and the practice opens from 8am to 8pm Monday to Friday, they even open Saturdays. A patient never feels rushed and the technology they have invested in is of a very high quality indeed.

In conclusion, I would just like to say I, and so many others think the practice is amazing and I feel they deserve recognition for this. They are a shining example for others to follow.” Elaine Richardson

“I have been a patient at Honesty for over a year now. I decided to join the practice after speaking to Gillian about some dental problems I was experiencing, from a serious road traffic accident many years ago.

The entire team at Honesty are professional, efficient, kind and very accommodating and understanding. Gillian and Elaine immediately put you at ease when you walk through the door. Nothing is too much trouble and they always manage to accommodate my needs. They are both very kind, caring and considerate. I am always well informed about all aspects of my care at Honesty, again this is due to the amazing team work the staff display.

Lucy and Katherine have been my main nurses. They are outstanding and show so much care in their work. I felt very safe with them looking after me, reassuring me and they are always happy to see you again and explain anything you are not sure about. I also received outstanding after care after all my procedures and again nothing was too much trouble for Lucy and Katherine to make me feel more comfortable and relaxed.

My dentist throughout my treatment has been Shubham. He is a fantastic dentist. All my procedures and treatment were very carefully explained by Shubham. Then to check he knows you have understood and are happy he asks you to tell him what he is going to do. Shubham also uses the most up to date techniques and equipment so you know you are receiving the best treatment.

Thank you to the Honesty team for all your hard work helping me over the last year. I really would not have got through it all without the help, support and encouragement from each and every one of you” Nicola Marsh

“I would like to thank Dr Richard Denny and his team for their help and support. I live in Preston but travelled to Shipley because I’d heard of the Cerec system.

My fear of having a dental impression and the ‘gagging’ this caused had prevented me from having the two crowns fitted. Carole had explained the procedure over the phone but I could not believe it would be so straightforward. It turned out to be the answer to a prayer!

Richard was so kind and understanding which gave me such confidence. I had no gagging whatsoever and sailed through the whole process. I am delighted with the two crowns – which look and feel perfect. I will have no hesitation in recommending this practice and it is such a comfort to me to know that this option is available.

With my grateful thanks for a truly exceptional service.”
Susan Mayor

“I recently needed some dental work myself and had to decide who to see.

Having placed implants for Richard’s patients over the past 15 years I have seen the very high standard of dentistry he provides for his patients. This encouraged me to ask Richard to take a look at me to see if he could help. He said he could so we arranged a number of appointments.

It is a very strange feeeling being on the receiving end of dentistry rather than being the provider! However I felt very relaxed as Richard worked away in my mouth without causing any discomfort at all.

Richard has all the latest hi-tech dental equipment and was able to provide me with a number of crowns without even needing an impression. This is something which I think will appeal to many patients.

Richard’s staff from reception to chairside are all very caring and thoughtful and make visits a pleasure.

I would thoroughly recommend Richard and all at Honesty for first-class dental care.”

Bridge for Lisa Pendlebury“I’m a singer so my smile is of the utmost importance to me. When I lost my bridge on Boxing Day, I felt lost.

I contacted several dental practices during the festive period, but none could help. In contrast, Honesty Dental Care arranged an emergency appointment for me. The dentist is not a favourite place of mine, but I was immediately placed at ease by Carole on reception and by the dentist Richard Denny.

Richard scanned my teeth and made a new bridge on-site. I know he stayed late to do this, and I cannot speak highly enough of everyone involved. It was a first class service which I would highly recommend.” Lisa Pendlebury

“Thank you so much for your AMAZING customer service. I was petrified and hadn’t seen a dentist for 10 years due to a terrible phobia.

Stephen and Richard helped me through with so much patience and professionalism that I sat on that scary chair and felt comfortable and in very good hands!” Rosa Massimo

Sedation“I would like to say a big thanks to all the team for helping me deal with my oral health issues. I have a serious phobia of dentists and haven’t seen one in 12 years.

I would like to thank Stephen for all his support and his ability to empathise with my situation. The IV sedation was amazing and I feel really good about taking that leap into the unknown. I can’t believe how easy it was.

Even though I was still terrified (and probably always will be), the whole experience has left me feeling able to continue with the rest of my treatment. I have lots of friends with a fear of dentists and have been singing your praises. I would definitely recommend Honesty Dental Practice, especially to those who live with a phobia of dentists.” Rachel Greene

“Due to a mix up, I was unable to have sedation today. For someone who has not been to the dentist for 10 years, this could have been a bad morning and could have put me off going back for another 10 years.

However, the team at Honesty couldn’t have done more for me – I had a tooth removed without any pain and I am now booked to go back to have my fillings done.

I cannot recommend them highly enough. They have gone a long way in restoring my faith in dentists. Also, a quick mention for the lovely nurse who held my hand!” Chris Kemp

“I have been a patient of Richard’s for many years and have had several complex dental procedures, which have always been carried out professionally and with great care towards me. I would certainly recommend him to friends who need similar procedures.” Jan Richards

Byron Elliot“From the moment I spoke to Carole on the phone I knew I was in safe and caring hands. I can honestly say that the whole experience was the most stress and worry-free I have had with any dentist, which is so important when, like me, someone is in pain and afraid of dentistry! Thank you for the amazing customer service and dental care I received, and for seeing me at such short notice and making me pain free.” Byron Elliott

“Hello Honesty Dental Team. I just wanted to say a very big thank you very much for my lovely white teeth and for looking after me so well yesterday. I can’t stop admiring them and everybody else is too! I look forward to seeing you all again very soon.Linda Conway

“I had not attended a dentist for 12 years after a bad experience which led to fear of 
dental practices. I found Richard and Adele to be understanding of my fear – they have gained my trust and rebuilt my confidence so I now see dental work as a treatment rather than a punishment.

The support given and the work that has been done has been outstanding, and has really turned the 
whole feel of my mouth around. Previously I had been scared that I could lose my teeth through 
gum disease, but with the care and advice that I have received, I am no longer worried or ashamed 
to smile.” Karen Beswick

“In my career my teeth are very important to me, and the work that Richard has done has saved them and ultimately enhanced my career. He was honest in his expectations, and the treatment exceeded them. You can always rely on a pleasant welcome from Richard and his team.” Alan Clarke

Rob testimonial“I write to compliment you on the use of ‘The Wand’ for delivering anaesthetic. Previously when I’ve had anaesthetic my jaw, lips and tongue were left numb and uncomfortable. ‘The Wand’ was a much more agreeable form of receiving anaesthetic, direct to the particular tooth that needed the treatment.” Rob Higgie

“I have known Dr Denny for over 30 years both as a friend and colleague. I recently consulted him about a troublesome tooth I’ve had for a while. Richard’s skill and attention to detail is second to none and the work he has carried out for me is absolutely first class. I would wholeheartedly recommend Honesty Dental to anyone.

Finally, if ever you were thinking about having a CEREC restoration… do it! They are absolutely fabulous.” Richard Denton
