Why choose Braces & Faces

What patients are saying about Braces & Faces

Wonderful treatment

Wonderful treatment and fantastic new tooth on my plate, thank you to my dentist Tania and the lovely helpful receptionists.


Never experienced better dental treatment

I have never experienced better dental treatment that is not only fully explained in simple terms but delivered with an enthusiasm that encourages me to also do my best.

Michael Derek Price

Very kind and understanding

I was terrified to visit the dentist after 12 years. I was treated with kindness and empathy and supported through my treatment, staff are very kind and understanding. I had to cancel some appointments due to work but they were quickly rearranged without problem, highly recommend.

Gail Hall

Friendly welcoming staff

Friendly welcoming staff. The Dental Surgeon made my 5yr olds first ever visit very comfortable, and an enjoyable experience.


I can not thank you all enough

I’m a very nervous patient to the point I can pass out on the way to appointments. I’ve had 2 appointments here with Rakesh and I’m so greatful for the professionalism, the calming manner I have been shown, I cannot thank you all enough. I can now walk myself to the practice without passing out and am so grateful. Everyone at the company have been amazing with me. Very highly recommended.
