Success Stories


Mrs C. Blazsk
Delighted with the result and would recommend Quick Straight Teeth.
The treatment experience was straightforward with no pain and very little discomfort and very efficiently carried out.
Ms. K.Charters
I would thoroughly recommend Quick Straight teeth.
The experience as a whole was made easy by Greg's professionalism and care throughout. I am extremely happy with my result and would encourage anyone thinking about the treatment to go ahead!

Mrs J Pinkerton

Mr Greg Canning explained everything in good understandable detail. It was a bit daunting at first when braces were put on, however they were easy to get used to.

The treatment was very good - always happy to help and given time to do any work - never rushed.

I wish I had done this years ago!

I recommend anyone with squint/sticky out teeth to consider this.

Thank you for giving me my smile back!


Ms D. Stevold


My experience with Sanjana Dandin and her colleague Jenny has been fantastic. I was so worried about going to the dentist. I had crown work done by another dentist which we found was extremely unacceptable.

Right from the moment I walked through the doors Sanjana and Jenny were kind and caring,shinning confidents that instantly made me feel calm and in good hands.

The crowns Sanjana uses are beautiful. The material looks great and mimics real tooth. I really like Sanjana's manners . She appears caring making you feel safe and less anxious. She listens and communicates with you. Her work is professional and looks fantastic. Next time I am happy to say, I will be looking forward to going to the dentist and smiling with my new crowns.
