I recently had Invisalign treatment by Will Aspinall and am extremely happy with the results. From the outset, Will thoroughly explained the whole process and expected results - which are amazing. Will is very friendly and helpful and put me at ease throughout the whole process - I no longer have a fear of dentists! I highly recommend Will and all at Elbow Lane Dental Care and can't thank them enough for their care and support.
Very accommodating practice to unusual times, the place was extremely clean and had clear instruction/routine in place. Having not been the dentist for quite a long time, my nerves were settled by Will who was polite and professional from start to finish during my treatment. Will proceeded to go above and beyond, offering recommendations and giving me a clear picture to my dental health. He explained everything along the way. I would highly recommend the practice as a whole due to the friendliness, cleanliness and welcoming professionalism - and hopefully you're met with Will.
I rang this morning at 9 am regarding a dental abscess. By 10 am I had been seen, treated, collected a prescription from the pharmacy and was back at work. The staff were very friendly as always. Extremely grateful for the swift care today and would highly recommend this dental surgery.
Would give it more stars if I could. The service is professional from making the appointment to seeing the dentist and aftercare. Have been three times so far and each time its the same great service. The last visit I took my daughter who was extremely nervous. The dentist was great, took his time and was so friendly. My daughter got herself upset after hearing she needed a filling at a later date, they kindly gave us a private room to calm her down before she went out into the reception, a lovely gesture and very much appreciated thank you!
I just felt the need to say what an amazing dental practice they are. I have always been greeted and treated with the utmost care and attention.
My recent visit was very last minute, however they accommodated me for a dental and hygienist appointment the very next day for personal reasons. I can't thank Jude, Dan, Julian and the rest of the team for looking after me at the drop of a hat. 10 out of 10 at this difficult time. Thank you everyone.
Excellent practice can highly recommend been here for many years thank you Julian and Julie for looking after me , great service from all the team.
Great dental practice, always feel at ease during every visit. Friendly and helpful service tailored to meet my needs. Highly recommended!
Been coming here for years... Julian only dentist I let near my teeth lol;-)... still travel there even though I moved to Cheshire! I'm now living in Australia for a couple years it's still my dentist!!
Fabulous friendly staff too!!
I can't recommend this Dental practice highly enough. I have been a patient here for many years; even though I moved out of the local some years ago ( I now live 25 miles away), I have continued to attend this practice as the quality is second to none ! The Practice Manager & Reception staff are so friendly and helpful. Whenever I have had any minor problems requiring prompt intervention (eg. lost filling, crown) staff have always offered me an appointment really promptly. The dental care is excellent – care from my Dentist (Mr. Powell) , Hygienist and support staff has all have been fantastic. The practice has a real friendly / personal feel to it .Treatments and prices are always explained and discussed clearly. The practice is clean, modern and in very pleasant surroundings. Designated parking at the front of the practice provides ease of access for drivers. I would not hesitate in recommending this dental practice to others.
I'd been a very nervous dentist patient for a long time, after a bad experience with another dentist some time ago, and had let my teeth get in a bad condition. Thankfully, I joined Elbow Lane quite some years ago now and haven't looked back since. Julian and his team did their best for my teeth for many years, dental work including several crowns and a bridge but gradually over the years the roots underneath my top set of teeth gave way and it was becoming more difficult to keep them in! This caused problems and I had to be careful eating things like steak and French bread – apples were a complete no go! Eventually Julian advised that the roots were damaged beyond repair and I had a choice to make – either wear dentures for the rest of my life or invest in having a dental implant. I did attempt a plate for a while without success so I opted for dental implants instead.
This was a fantastic decision!! The work took several months to complete and involved the removal firstly of the remaining teeth/roots and allowing some time for the sockets to settle down. I did have a temporary denture made up but I opted not to wear it. Once the sockets had healed I had six implants installed into my top jaw on a Saturday morning. This was the only difficult part of the process for me, the patient, but Julian and his team were very supportive, even providing me with a personal mobile number to call should I encounter any excessive pain over that weekend after the implants were installed. I'm very pleased to report that this wasn't required and with the exception of a small amount of pain once the anaesthetic had worn off I was fine. Once the implants had settled down some very accurate measurements were taken to enable the framework for the teeth to be made up so they could fit the implants precisely.
When the time came for the framework and teeth to be fitted I was delighted that they were an exact fit with only some minor adjustments to be made to get my 'bite' correct. This was very straightforward. I've had my implants now for just over a year and what a difference it has made – I can eat apples, French bread and steak, for examples, without worrying about a crown falling out. More importantly I can smile with confidence again and anyone who doesn't know I have implants would never know – even the colour match is perfect for my remaining teeth in my lower jaw (I was worried that they'd be bright white and obviously implants!) I would urge anyone who can to opt for dental implants – Julian and his team were marvellous throughout the whole process, letting me know exactly what would be happening and what to expect
I think of Dan as the 'Kenny Dalglish' of dentistry. If anyone can, Dan can.
I have been a patient at E.L.D.C. for some years now and although this means that I travel over 20 miles each way to visit the practice, I would not wish to change practices or dentists. The treatment that I receive is always excellent. Reception staff are always cheerful, efficient &friendly - nothing is too much trouble for them. Refurbishments to the practice have provided a modern, comfortable waiting room with welcome addition of flat screen TV and ample magazines / reading material. Mr Powell immediately puts me at my ease in the dentists chair and I know I will always receive the best dental treatment and clear information explaining this. Hygienist staff always see me promptly, provide friendly efficient service and leave my teeth gleaming and fresh.
If you want to use my name I'm fine with that although if you want to knock 10 years off my age I won't sue...
Also do I get any kind of discount / pressie if you quote me...? LOL
I have been more than happy with the care taken over my teeth by Dan and especially during the last year when you have transformed my top teeth to a most impressive standard- I can smile with confidence- thanks also to the expertise of your technician.
Elbow Lane Dental Care Having been scared of going to the dentist for the past fifteen years,and having to travel from Merseyside to Bolton to go to a dentist that would "knock me out" to do a filling, I thought it was about time to face the fears, go somewhere local and "stay awake". Having your practice recommended by a friend I thought I would give it a go. Jude in reception was excellent, appointment sorted promptly and very approachable. So now, recently having had two fillings done by Julian ( extremely professional) who talked me through the procedure whilst he was doing it, keeping me calm and causing no pain, I am happy to say I would also highly recommend this practice.
Dan is a very professional dentist who strives to achieve the best results. He has a very enthusiastic and friendly manner which made me feel at ease whilst having my treatment. Dan explained exactly what he was going to do so therefore nothing came as a surprise!!.
I have been a patient of Mr Powell's for over 20 years now, and my 3 adult children are also his patients.
I have a great fear of the dentist to the point I take a valium before each visit, but Mr Powell is so understanding, he talks me through everything that he is doing to put me at ease. He has the patience of a Saint as do the hygienists, the whole Dental Surgery work as a great team and are very helpful and friendly. One example New Year's Eve 2010 I broke a back tooth eating a meal, the surgery was closed until Jan 4th but the receptionist fitted me in and Mr Powell repaired my tooth the same day.
How good is that for service.
Julian has been my dentist forever in Formby. The staff also have been there forever which says a lot about the practice manager!
When Julian decided to leave the NHS in favour of Denplan, I was at first sceptical, but how wrong was I! Denplan has proved to be a brilliant scheme and excellent value for money.
The service that's offered at Elbow Lane is fantastic, due to the nature of my work I need appointments at short notice, I have always found the staff extremely helpful and accommodating.Julian is a top class dentist who has made my smile even brighter.
Well done Julian and all at Elbow Lane!
I didn't want to visit the dentist as I was worried that Mr Collins would do drilling on my teeth – but when I sat on the moving chair and met Dan and Mr Sharkey with all his teeth- I was not worried anymore!.
Both my wife and myself have been looked after by Julian and his staff for over 20 years. From the early beginnings at Cropton House to Elbow Lane which has recently been totally refurbished and upgraded. We have enjoyed excellent service in a welcoming environment whether at a prearranged appointment or emergency visit. Having recently had an Implant Procedure I became aware of the vast improvements and innovations available at the practice. On my recommendation as to how easy, (almost enjoyable) and interesting the procedure was Isobel has decided to follow my example. The finished implants are unbelievably secure , comfortable and well able to attack any amount of sugared almonds.
A warm welcome,excellent service and the expertise of all make a visit stress free and well worthwhile, Thank you all for endeavours."
Visits to the practice, despite any discomfort incurred, have always been pleasurable. I have always been treated with professionalism and courtesy by dental and administrative staff and every effort has been made to ensure my comfort.
This practice is forward moving in an ever changing world, making it easy, the patients to look after our teeth.
The dental surgery is welcoming and family orientated and everyone that works there is friendly and professional. The treatment I have received is of a very high standard and I have always felt that I can ask questions and be involved in my own care.
I am so pleased to be rid of my troublesome bridge and the implant is just like a real tooth which I can bite and eat with as normal. The appearance of my teeth has also vastly improved and I know I can smile now with more confidence. Thank you again for the implant procedure and my continued wellbeing at the practice.
I have always had a phobia of having any dental work done until I visited Elbow Lane Dental Practice. The staff there were really good in making me feel at ease and supported me throughout my treatment and aftercare. The end result was fantastic without being duped into having treatment I didn't need. I got the smile I always longed for. I would like to thank you all very much.
It's great here- it's better than Toys 'R' Us.
After a long wait, I decided to go and have a check up, this for me was a brave move as I am petrified of the dentist through a very bad experience. I met Daniel Collins and Beth, I discussed my fears and my hopes as to what I would like to gain.
It started with me needing several fillings and the possibility of a tooth being removed which was quite a shock and very upsetting for me.
The next step was to renew my crowns, which was going to be very distressing for me. Neil did a fantastic job and I am delighted with the outcome.
I would recommend your practice to anybody who has any doubts about visiting the dentist, the team I met were fantastic to me and very patient.
Many thanks to you all,
