Overcoming Patient’s Fears

As someone who used to read through the posts on dental fear forums because I was scared to go to the dentist, I can now say hands down Andy and his team are the best. I was an NHS patient for many years but decided to bite the bullet and go private after a particularly…
I am a big baby when it comes to the dentist, after a terrible experience when I was just 18, then again not so many years ago with a NHS dentist in Garstang, I want to thank Andy for giving me my smile back after years of neglecting my teeth due to fear of the dentist, and also thanks Jonathan for the pain free removal of teeth, just a few more visits and my smile will be perfect, thank you soooooo much. I certainly will not be going any where but Holly Dental practice from now on and highly recommend to everyone xx

I was recommended to Holly Dental by a friend of mine & after my first consultation knew that this was right for not just myself but my wife & 2 children & we are all now signed up. The work done was of a standard far above what any NHS dentist has ever done & the results are remarkable. The service, treatment & practice facilities are top drawer & the attention to detail is exemplary
Thanks again to all of you at Holly Dental ,for helping me through all my treatment,I'm finally getting my smile back xxxx

Just a few words to give a massive thank you to Andy and Jonathan for given me my smile back. Last February, my tooth cap came off and I was quiet unhappy about it. I spoke to Andy and he suggested a few options to improve my smile. I opted for an implant since Mr. Holly didn't have much of my natural tooth left. It took a bit longer than I expected until I had my tooth fitted but I can say with confidence that it is great now. I can't stop smiling! Both, Jonathan and Andy have been very professional, gentle and caring. I never noticed anything when Jonathan took my tooth out or when fitting my implant. I highly recommend these two great professionals! Thank you ever so much!

I've been going to the dentist since I was 5 years old and always went quite happily. A setback a few years ago at another dentist caused facial pain and tooth ache and nerve discomfort that went on for years. After hospital appointments at the Maxiofacial department I was referred back to my dentist. Andy has worked his magic and the pain has all gone. He is very good with nervous patients which is what I turned into. Today a 6 month check revealed no work needed and teeth in superb condition. The last year I have been happy and pain free and that's down to Andy and the team. Great work guys X

I would give a higher rating if I were able. My family and I have been with Holly Dental since it was first established but have been seeing Andrew Holly since 2008. After returning from the U.S. and needing a dentist to be reliable, trustworthy and excellent as well as offering services on the surgical side I trusted Andy from the word go with my family's health. My children are not worried at all about dental visits and are put at ease by a professional and friendly team. Thank you!

I set up a corporate dental scheme with Holly dental to take care of myself and my team at HR Partner. The dental care we have received since joining the practice has been second to none :-) Andy and his team are highly skilled, very professional, welcoming, and put even the most nervous of patients completely at ease. Having gone through what I wanted, Andy came up with a plan and I can honestly say I have never been happier with my smile, and have not experienced a single moment discomfort or pain. They have also started to look after my children who love it there and have absolutely no qualms about visiting the dentist any longer. I recommend the practice all the time to my clients and to anyone reading this review

Love the place. I have to attend every 3 months for Botox like you do when you are the wrong side of 40and unfortunately I have to bring the kids. All the staff have the patience of a saint and the girls do a great job of entertaining them whilst Andy gets on with the job in hand. He is very knowledgeable about the products used as I'm always quizzing and questioning him on the ins and outs. Would recommend to anyone and they even set me up a monthly payment plan so I can budget for the cost. Carry on the good work guys x

A huge, huge thank you to Andy and Michelle

A huge, huge thank you to Andy and Michelle at Holly Dental for all their hard work over the last few months and giving me the most amazing smile for my wedding day!! I had a real fear of dentists before visiting Andy but he put me at ease from the minute I met him.…
Beautiful surgery, friendly staff and Andrew is a brilliant dentist who explains exactly what each appointment entails. Highly recommend.

I don't normally write these types of reviews, but I searched for Holly Dental this morning because I had misplaced the contact number and my wife and I are due for a check up. I then noticed the 1 star review by 'Olivia Leonie' which must be a fake or a set up or something, I've never read such rubbish, and judging by the terminology used it looks a bit fishy. My wife and I first visited Andy and Jonathan about a year ago after seeing a few other local dentists for a consultation, but we came across their advert in a local magazine regarding implants. I knew I was going to lose the few remaining top teeth I had, but the estimates of £20k I had received elsewhere were just out of budget.... I also like my holidays you see! After a joint consultation, which was free by the way as an offer in the magazine, Andy and Jonathan came up with a treatment plan, almost identical to the other two practices, for £7,500 less. Hardly the sign of a practice that 'swindles' or 'rips people off?' I had 5 implants (German/swiss made I believe) with bone grafts after a CT scan, and a fixed porcelain bridge. There is nothing I can't eat, the entire procedure was painless, and they saved me nearly £8,000! On top of all this they also arranged interest free finance for me on all of it! These guys are not here to offer false opinions, rip anyone off and certainly didn't "fail to offer the best option for my teeth." As I said, it was the same outcome of two other respectable dentists in the area, just for a lot less. These types of reviews can be extremely helpful for patients like my wife and I searching for a better solution to our care needs, and false ones like 'Olivia Leonie's' could potentially prevent someone else being saved £8,000. It's just not on...and I'm pretty sure my treatment was a more 'complex case' than yours flower! Keep up the great work gents.... we'll see you soon!

Needs 6 stars!! If you are looking for a friendly, professional dentist that will treat you with the care and attention you deserve in comfortable surroundings, then this the practice for you. I have been a patient of Andy's for a few years now and have always received great treatment from him and his team. Most recently I needed root canal treatment and it was completely painless. Andy explained the process from start to finish which helped put me at ease. I have also had a couple of fillings replaced which were done in white - they look amazing and you can't even tell they are there! Would recommend them to anybody.

I wouldn't go anywhere else after having treatment at Holly Dental. Andy and the team are very professional and absolutely lovely. I have had some awful experiences at previous dentists over the years, but Andy has restored my confidence again! I 100% recommend Andy and the team for your dentist treatments including cosmetic dentistry. He has gone above and beyond my expectations with my cosmetic work, and I cannot recommend him enough to potential patients. Just ask to see his work and it will speak for itself! Not to mention, the surgery is beautiful too, and the team will do their best to help you feel relaxed during your visit.

Andrew Has been My dentist for a very long time, and along with his friendly and highly experienced staff, provide dental care that is second to none. He did some very difficult work on a few of my teeth that saved them from needing to be removed and I can't thank him enough.

I can't stop smiling :D Thank you Andy and Jonathan!

To all at Holly Dental, Just to say thank you! I needed a full span upper bridge replacing due to existing teeth failing. A daunting prospect as implants would have to be considered. After a full consultation with Andy and Mr Kennair at Holly Dental, my mind was put at rest on the dental implant procedures. X-rays confirmed the only way forward for me to replace my existing dental bridge was to have a new one fitted supported on 5 dental implants. I decided to go ahead and have the dental work done. The implant work was done by Mr Kennair with gentle care, completely pain free on one appointment, under local anaesthetic. The new bridge that was designed for me was fitted carefully and with much thought and professionalism by Andy and I am very happy with it, no adjustments have been needed to it. I now have a perfect smile! All the staff at Holly Dental are friendly and are an excellent team, working with new modern equipment to achieve the best results possible. So thanks again Andy and Mr Kennair, I have no worries or fears about being a regular patient with you and your team at Holly Dental. Yours Sincerely, Keith

To the all the Team, I would like to say a big thank you to you all for making my smile complete for the first time in many years. Andy and Michelle; you are a great team in the surgery and you both made me feel at ease right away. Nothing has ever been too much trouble for you, no matter what my teeth have presented for you! I have experienced so many bad dentists since being a child but Andy, I havent felt any pain or undue force being used at all throughout all the procedures you have carried out. This has been a revelation to me. I will definitely recommend you to friends and family. Similarly, Jonathan caused no discomfort with the dental implants work he expertly carried out. Thank you too, to the ladies on reception for the friendly greeting and professional manner. Its not an exaggeration to say that the dental work I have undergone in the last couple of years has been life changing. I can smile with confidence and eat as a normal person would; nothing short of amazing! Kind regards and hopefully not seeing you again too soon!
— Helen Smith
Excellent, professional and pain free treatment. Andy's approach is friendly and explains everything in terms I understood. His assistant (sorry, forgot her name) understood my fear of needles and ensured I was comfortable while reassuring me while having work done. Never again will I be in fear of the dentist.
— Lisa Porter, via facebook
I am so pleased that Holly Dental was recommended to me! Andy and his team are so friendly and down to earth - they really look after you! I've recently had a root canal treatment by Andy that was pain free, and I've just come back home from having what I can only describe as a 'flat' filling (done by my last dentist) extracted and re-done, and now it feels like I have a real tooth again If you want a private dentist who's spotlessly clean, offers affordable plans and ensures you're always comfortable, then please look no further
