Excellent and highly skilled dentist (i see Dr Opperman, my wife sees Dr Thinus Oelofse) My family and i have been receiving dental care from Hockerill Dental for several years. Both the skill and the care delivered are exceptional. As I'm over 65 I've now had fillings, crowns, and dental implants and not only do they all "work" flawlessly, but, whilst not a controlled experiment, my experience appears to have been much less painful and less fraught than my friends having similar work done.

Earlier this week, I needed an emergency appointment and they managed to see me straightaway. As soon as I walked in, I was greeted by the friendly reception staff. I was really nervous about this appointment but the dentist Dr Shiv really helped to calm my nerves by taking the time to explain to me what the problem was and how it would be resolved. He was patient throughout the procedure and constantly checking that I was feeling ok. All the dental work I had done was to a high standard with no pain at all. Dr Shiv is a credit to the practice and I cannot thank him enough. I highly recommend this dental practice to everybody!
