Dentist in Alton
What I liked: My first visit to the practice, Receptionist welcoming, Nik came into reception and introduced himself. Very thorough examination explaining what may be needed to be done in the future. Very happy.10/1/19
Dr Sukhdev Bhalla and Tina Christmas looked after my elderly mother with care and attention. I cannot fault them. Thank you
Friendly and clean practice
I like the friendly and efficient ways in this Practice and the ready availability of dentists at short notice.
Polite and respectful and kept me informed of what was going on and always discusses options for treatment. Always gentle and considerate. Punctual and very efficient.
My wife and I have been with a dental practice at this address since we moved to the area in 1984, under a series of very good, reasonable and absolutely awful individual dentists. We were seriously considering seeking another practice when Dr. Safri and team took over, and the difference was immediate, significant and substantially better; in short, we decided to remain with the practice, and we couldn't be more pleased with the excellent standard of service we have received at every appointment. I can recommend this practice without a shadow of hesitation.
Dr. Safri's team need no note of improving their service; as far as I'm concerned, their service in all respects is excellent.
I come from a generation which experienced "foot in the chest" dentistry, which made most of my generation very wary indeed about even contemplating a visit to the dentist. Fortunately, this former very nervous visitor to any dental practice is now very relaxed and no longer anticipates the rigours of past experiences, and it's practitioners such as Dr. Safri who has set my mind to rest in this respect.
The reception staff at Alton Dental Centre are always friendly and helpful. The consultants are professional and instill confidence. In particular, I have had a couple of molars that have proved to be problematic, but Dr Hardeep Singh Safri is so professional, self assured and has such a calming influence that inspires confidence; hence, the treatment has never been as distressing as it might have sounded. A professional, friendly team with a focus on people.
Great dental treatments for my entire family. Suk is great at making you feel relaxed and gives you clear explanations as to work is required or what will be carried out throughout a treatment.
Diamond service and treatments every visit.

Absolutely brilliant! Everyone was so friendly and welcoming. I'm a nervous patient and I was really reassured by the care given
All staff is proffessional,very friendly and kind like their leader (Dr Safri)
I liked their caring manner and understanding of my needs as a patient. Being a nervous patient I have appreciated their kindness and understanding in making me feel at ease.
Calm, Caring, understanding best dentist practice in Hampshire.
I am a very nervous patient even though I am nearly fifty I still have my husband hold my hand. I have not visited a dentist for a number of years. When I have felt brave enough (2 occasions) I have felt that the dentist has not taken my fears seriously. So coming to Alton Dental was a huge step and one I am pleased that I have taken.
I have made to feel at ease from the lovely ladies at the desk to Nikul and Jo. Nikul takes time to explain everything he is going to do. He will not do anything that I do not feel comfortable with. I really did not think I could have any work done without sedation but pleased to say with Nikul's encouragement I have had a tooth removed without sedation.
Nikul and Jo never make me feel that I am taking up too much time or that I am being a nuisance. I could not recommend them highly enough.
Being a very nervous patient, I was put at ease instantly by the friendliness of every member of staff. Today I had Nick and he done a root canal, I was extremely apprehensive and didn't know what to expect from the treatment.
He and his colleague were fantastic and very caring and considerate of my fear throughout the procedure. I cannot thank them enough, and I'm certainly not worried to return for further treatment.
All of my family are patients at Alton dental and have said that it's a totally different experience from our previous practice. Thank you to all of the staff members.
A big thank you to Brigitte and the team. Everyone has been very caring and efficient.
I am very pleased with my treatment in this dental practice. Everyone is really helpful and the care I receive gives me confidence in the outcome. Also, the practice is well run with calls to patients to remind them when their appointments are done.
I required some emergency treatment. I no longer live in Alton. Everyone was most helpful and accommodating and friendly.
Excellent service. Thank you.
Jo & Brigitte are lovely and take good care of a very nervous patient (me:-)).
The work very well together.
Comprehensive advice about dental care and clearly explained dental treatment carried out. Very professional approach by all staff to client care and concerns. After real problems with our previous dentist, it was really refreshing to find a practice whose priority was dental care not financial gain. Cary is a true professional and his nurse in attendance at my visit showed caring and professionalism rarely found these days -long may it continue and many thanks.
Overall rating for this dentist : I would recommend this practice to a friend

Dr Safri has been the best dentist my daughter (Marie Langthorne) has seen My dentist (Bridget) & her assistant are wonderful too.
CQC Inspector's comments after the visit:
We spoke with seven people who had received dental treatment during the week of our visit. Everyone we spoke with was complimentary about their experiences of care and treatment, providing comments such as "My dentist and dental nurse are wonderful" and "[They] provide a really good service". One person said "I wouldn't want to go to any other practice" saying that staff were professional and conscientious.
Those who were anxious about dental appointments said they were reassured and helped to relax by the staff at the practice. People whose children received care at this practice said, "All the staff are friendly" and "They are great with the children.
Just back from another visit to Bridget and Jo (a filling this time), and wanted to say what a pleasure it is to come to your practice.
I'm a very nervous patient - a lifetime of poor dental experiences, until now - and these ladies always make me feel comfortable and at ease. Bridget is considerate and gentle (a huge change from the rough treatment I got at Lenten Street), and Jo must be the very best dental nurse I've ever known. Her 'chair-side manner' and wholly appropriate tactile nature is very much welcomed and appreciated.
Please pass on my thanks to them both, and tell them I'm now actually looking forward to seeing them again on June 18th.
Many thanks. You have a practice that outclasses your competition.
