What our patients say

I recently invested in laser tooth whitening and I am delighted with the results. The procedure was clearly explained and executed and wasn’t at all uncomfortable. I would definitely recommend this treatment.

October 2022

Since I have returned to the dental surgery, I have been visiting my dentist Dr Victoria Lawrence and the hygienist Dr Christopher Hammond. The quality of service is excellent and the standard of care is very high. Victoria is so friendly, knowledgeable and an excellent dentist. The staff put me at ease and make me feel as a patient very looked after. I am extremely pleased with the surgery.

November 2022

I have always received outstanding care at H Williams & Associates, from booking through to treatment. My two most recent trips were no exception and have been fantastic experiences. Victoria and the nurse Becca instantly put me at ease and I experienced a pain-free treatment with an exceptional result. Victoria had such a lovely manner and was an excellent, professional dentist, she explained clearly what she was doing and answered all of my questions – the technology she used to show me my teeth was extraordinary (I’m so pleased this level of detail is being recorded so we can compare each time I visit).

I also had a great recent experience with Christopher Hammond – Hygienist. He used the Airflow machine, which I requested as I hadn’t tried it before. It was a great hygienist experience and I left with my teeth feeling extra clean and healthy!
