Huge thank you to Lucinda! She is fantastically patient and kind. During our visit today she was brilliant with my 12 year old and explained all the equipment and what she was doing. My daughter said on the way home that it made a massive difference to her as she felt more relaxed and less afraid – a huge improvement on our previous dentist! Thank you!
