I first visited the practice in April 2018 when I met with Dr. Tom Crawford-Clark. We discussed a treatment plan and what I wanted to gain from the treatment.
From a young age I’d had overlapping front teeth which always bothered me. I wanted straight teeth and it was important to me to have a natural looking smile and so I decided, with Tom’s advice, that Invisalign was the way to go.
Before the I could start the treatment I needed two attachments fitted to my teeth to hold the aligner in place, which didn’t hurt one bit. I started the treatment at the end of April. I had 14 aligners. The first few aligners I changed every 2 weeks and after my next check up, they were changed every 10 days. By aligner 7 I could really see the difference. As my teeth were responding well to the Invisalign treatment i soon went on to weekly changes. By the end of September my treatment was pretty much finished. Once the attachments were removed from my teeth I decided to have some whitening treatment. I also had a wire fitted to the back of my teeth to prevent movement and I also use a retainer which I wear when I sleep (however, I don’t actually need the retainer but I am so used to it now it feels strange without it). I would recommend a visit to the practice. The service is first class. The team make you feel welcome and Tom and his assistant always put me at ease whenever I have any treatment.

For as long as I can remember I have always hated my front teeth they were an awful colour and had white spots on them. They also tilted backwards slightly. I saw Dr Tom who recommended teeth whitening and composite bonding. I have finished the treatment and I am totally over the moon, I can’t stop smiling I now have beautiful bright healthy looking teeth and an improved smile. Thank you Shrubbery Dental the service has been amazing!

Having been called ‘bugs-bunny’ for most of my childhood, I got braces very early, including a head brace! And more retainers than I could count on both hands. So when my braces came off at 12 it was a huge relief and I was finally happy with my smile. From 12 – 28 a lot can change! And gradually my teeth worsened, other people might not have noticed, but I hated it. After years of pain and patience, I was so upset that I had started hiding from photos and if I was in a photo it had to be on one side and particular angle… which never happened. So despite other people not thinking I needed it, I chose to have Invisalign, and I’m SO glad I did. I shopped around for deals and had various consultations, but Shurbbery were by far the most competitive in their pricing AND go above and beyond to make sure you get EXACTLY what you want. Tom was absolutely amazing, when the course was up after 17 weeks we ordered more trays, twice, so I think it took me around 30 weeks in the end
At 17 they would have looked great but at 30 I was over the moon! Thank you Tom for all your extra hours and for understanding how important it was to me. I’m so grateful and would recommend all the team at Shrubbery and their amazing Invisalign service everyday.

Going to the dentist back in the 70’s used to be something to dread, but since seeing David Howcroft and now Jess at Shrubbery Dental Practice, it has become something I actually look forward to. Their professional manner, courtesy and care are second to none. All the staff are very friendly and always willing to offer advice. I cannot recommend them enough.
Our family have been patients of the Shrubbery Dental Practice for nearly 40 years and we have no intention of going anywhere else. Without exception, the staff are professional and friendly; when we have needed emergency treatment, the service has always been there.
I was very happy with the advice and referral re my dental implant a couple of years ago. I am pleased that we still have the hat stand in place in the waiting room!
