A great many of our new patients come to us as following a recommendation from an existing patient. If you don't know any of our patients you may be interested to hear what our patients say about us. Here are some examples.

Helpful and friendly service, I'm now back with regular visits after many years to a dentist. Joined the silver plan, monthly cost all taken care of. Perfect

October 2019

Professional,attention to detail,explained everything well, caring manner.

October 2019

I first went to Croft Dental Centre as a very nervous patient. I had a broken back molar cutting into my cheek for a year before I finally admitted I needed treatment after recurrent mouth infections. I asked on a local Facebook group - Camberley Chat - for people to recommend a kind and understanding dentist, so many recommended Croft. My dentist, Shamilla was so patient with me, allowed me extra time, completely put me at ease. She sorted out my problem - pain free! I decided to join the monthly scheme realising if I do not take regular care of my teeth it will lead to bigger problems in the future. I have since had more extensive work done, including needles, all of which were completely pain free due to the skill and expertise of Shamilla. I can honestly say I now have zero anxiety about going to the dentist and even though I have moved out of area, I still come to Croft for my dental plan as I trust them completely. Highly recommended!

Staff are friendly and kind. Both Rodica and Nick are gentle and patient. Very happy with the hygienists too. Been coming here for 15 years and the friendly culture has stayed the same.

August 2019
Rajpal is most certainly the best dentist I have ever been seen by. Never had a dentist ever made me feel so comfortable and at ease. He explained everything to me in depth which no dentist ever has. Thank you.

July 2019
Very happy polite and extremely accommodating reception staff, made X-ray requests and moving up appointments to be more timely for myself, highly recommend this dental practice. Special shout out to the delightful Natalie she is Simply “The Best” Thanks Nat

July 2019
Excellent + Kind staff and Nick is very professional in his work and customer service.

As a very nervous patient it was helpful to have clear explanations as to procedure re treatment progress and care of my fears - It gave me a greater sense of confidence in the dentists abilities and was evidenced in her quiet manner and awareness of her patients needs more useful your review will be.

May 2019
I am so pleased with all the professionalism of the staff as usual. And I'm So very happy with my Hygienist Joanna. She gave me a lot of advice and encourage to do more better with my gums and teeth. And I would like to say Thanks to all of u.

May 2019
My family and visited the practice for our usual 6 month check up. We’ve been coming here for quite a while. They always arrange for us to be seen after work which is very convenient for my husband. The waiting time was only around 5 min if that. Our teeth were checked thoroughly and we were given tips how to care for them even better. My husband had some concerns and our lovely dentist took her time to explain everything to him. I have to say I myself am usually not the biggest fan of going to the dentist, I’m probably one of their more anxious patients, but she made it a very pleasant experience. No one was rushed and we certainly did feel like we were being listened to. All in all I have to say I feel like all 3 of us are in very good hands and I’m glad to have found such a great dentist so local to us.

May 2019
The team at Croft have been great from the moment I started with them some 4 years ago, they are communicative and aware of people’s fear with dentists. They have reassured me though my dental works and always communicate well. Having had a fear of the dentist since running out of one as a child, the team have really helped me overcome my fears and be prepared to smile again. Thank you.

April 2019
Great Communication, Staff + Great with my kids, especially the smallest !

April 2019
Literally can't say anything negative about Croft, staff are really friendly and helpful, reasonable prices and I've been very happy with all the dental work I've received. Thank you Croft and I will continue to be a patient of yours for years to come!

April 2019
Because we love Nick ! He has a great way with kids+we trust him.

Always Friendly dentist and reception. Always get a text or call a day before appointment. Have been coming here for about 18 years.

February 2019
Friendly professional staff. Accommodating when booking appointments. Clean and tidy practice. Would 100% recommend 🙂

February 2019
My experience with Croft Centre has been great. I have no complaint to made.

February 2019
I have a long history of bad teeth, my own neglect and an extremely varied quality of treatment. Without any technical knowledge, I nevertheless describe the work done on me by the present experts, together with their guidance and explanations, and the great kindness and understanding, as the object of sincere recommendation.

October 2018
Always so helpful especially Dr Nic. I love coming here.

October 2018
The dentist Rekha Nathen was very througher with my teeth being I haven't been to a dentist for at least 2 years. Glad I picked this dentist for me and highly recommend

September 2018
Rajpal is a great dentist. He gave me all the options about a complicated filling and I felt no pressure to go private at all so opted for NHS. He even gave me a temporary filling and it's better than the actual filling another dentist gave me!!

September 2018
I’ve had a long Invisalign treatment and really don’t like the dentist, but the whole process has really helped. Staff are great and every appointment was easy and I’m now almost at the end and pleased with the result.

August 2018
I joined Croft about 18 months ago and have been a very regular visitor ever since! My 'goals' were to have my problem wisdom teeth removed and to have straighter, healthier teeth. Everyone has been brilliant, helpful and friendly. Priya and Rajpal in particular have been amazing and considering all the work I have had done I always look forward to coming in. Communication is fantastic, I always feel well informed and accommodated. I recommend them to anyone looking for a new dentist in the area.

August 2018
Great dental practice with very friendly and knowledgeable staff. Priya is my dentist and she is very good with the whole family including my 5 year old daughter!! Jackie is my hygienist and she is a very nice lady and brilliant at her job. Highly recommended

July 2018
(Marguerite Kelly) restored my confidence in hygienist treatment - Excellent.

June 2018
Marvellous people! I have been a patient for years, a nervous one to begin with, but The Croft staff have helped me overcome this. At every appointment time is spent explaining what options there are and what is likely to happen. During any procedure I am always asked if I am ok. Recently I had a problem with a toothache and the practice manager bent over backwards to get me seen. Friendly staff that treat you like a human being, not just a patient. From the moment the phone is answered by the very competent receptionist to the time I leave I feel valued and cared for ! I truly recommend The Croft ! Restored my faith in dentists!! Thank you for everything

June 2018
I'm not good with dental work (phobia!!!!) I was 100% anxious on the run up to my appointment and also in the waiting room, explained this to the nurse and the dentist too (can't recall their names, sorry) On entering the treatment room, he explained what he would be doing, what I may feel and we agreed a stop signal if the treatment became unbearable. There was a little bit of discomfort having the injections and my heart was racing, nurse and dentist were both very calming and put me at ease, he was talking about the way they do things and how it was progressing, before I knew it the tooth was out. I chose this dental practice based on the reviews and I can confirm they were accurate. If you have any doubts or worries about dental work, then come here and talk to them, they have restored my faith in dentists and I would recommend them to anyone.

May 2018
Rodica by far is the best dentist ! Always so kind and considerate when looking after my girl's teeth !! Always having their best interest at heart.

May 2018
I had previously signed up with another dentist who incorrectly diagnosed what needed to be and would have cost me an additional £1000. Glad I chose to sign up at Croft as I feel I'm in far better hand now. I was dealt with professionally and with understanding.

May 2018
Great Service for my Emergency Dental appointment : This morning I chipped my front tooth and was in a lot of pain and distress. Within the hour The Croft dental practice was able to see me for an emergency appointment. Straight away they put me at ease, treated the tooth, prescribed correct medication and booked me in for a follow up appointment. I was so impressed at the genuine concern for their clients and the flexibility to get me seen straight away. I would definitely recommend this practice to friends and family as I feel that they have been so accommodating and caring. Thanks again!

April 2018
I am always made to feel very comfortable. Rodica is brilliant with my anxiety.

April 2018
Exceptionally good experience.

March 2018
Treatment Received: Invisalign - My teeth had started to move due to my age. My friend recommended me to CDC and they have been great. I am now having Invisalign treatment which is proving to be successful but painless. The treatment is still ongoing and the staff are all very nice. Recommendation. All staff excellent.

March 2018
Very Good service to nervous patient.

February 2018
Went into appointment on time. Friendly staff, Good quality check up.

February 2018
Excellent as always. Myself and my wife went together, appointments were on time and straight forward enough. Reception staff are very polite and our dentist is excellent. She spends the right amount of time explaining everything with you and she is always friendly and positive. She was also great with our 2 year old boy who we took for the first time to experience the environment , letting him sit in the seat etc. All round very good dentists

February 2018
Treatment Received: Cosmetic Dentist Consultation. I did a great deal of research before I approached Sharmilla to help with my dental problems. I had complete confidence in her, from the beginning she put me at ease with her kind, easy manner. I now have a first class smile and would highly recommend her. First rate service and treatment.

January 2018
Accommodating, friendly and professional staff - as always. Initially seen very quickly, after tooth damage occurred. Subsequent assessment appointment followed shortly after, when treatment options and associated costs were well described. Absolutely painless injection prior to crown preparation - thank you.

January 2018
Marvellous! At all points the treatment and the plans are discussed. As a patient this makes me feel involved and in control of my own care. Options are given and explained fully. The fact I am a nervous patient is taken into account and catered for. My dentist always makes sure I am comfortable with what is going on and explains what he is doing. The Dentist has a lovely sense of humour, happy to have a giggle which means patients relax more ( well I do anyway!) but at the same time remains focussed and professional. Fantastic reception staff that go over and above to make sure appointments are made. Always friendly and professional. Dental nurses are lovely. Also professional and accommodating. If they are running late, staff let you know and keep you informed rather than just leave patients guessing. Just all round lovely people who enjoy what they do! Thoroughly recommend!!

January 2018
As first time at Dental croft I can be satisfied, I received a good service and the staff was kind and available. I went there to fill out a tooth affected by a carie, the dentist was very polite and professional, after the injunction she filled out the carie and the final result is perfect I even can't remember which tooth she cared for because the intervention was done properly.

December 2017
I have not been to the dentist for quite some time , this was a hard experience for me to do , however the entire operation at the dental center was amazing from the ladies at the front desk to actual dentist , i was blown away by their care and attention , the lady at the desk on my return visit even remembered my partners exams and asked how they went , wow a great service from a great team easily 5 stars

December 2017
I can’t recommend Croft highly enough. An old filling fell out on Thursday and I was in and out with a nice shiny new one the next day. Zero pain even when giving the injection and throughout the treatment. I can’t even tell the filling has been replaced! The dentist was so kind and caring especially as I am a tad nervous . Also the receptionist is brilliant, she had someone on the phone, myself and someone else waiting to pay plus a dentist trying to get her attention. She dealt with it all calmly and efficiently, great service all round!

November 2017
The whole family feels comfortable when visiting this Dental Centre. I personally have concerns when visiting dentists but this Centre makes me feel at ease. Brilliant dentists, hygienists and staff. I would recommends this Centre to anybody.

June 2017
Prompt, efficient and very friendly treatment. I am pleased to recommend this centre to you.

May 2017
My appointment was on Tues 23 May 2017 and I was treated by a dentist. I was seen immediately on arrival and on completion of my treatment the doctor recommended that my dentures required a clean. They arranged for this to happen on the same day. I consider that this was over and above their normal duty and I appreciate their professional attitude.

May 2017
Friendly, Good Feedback, not pushed into treatment.

April 2017.
My family have been using The Croft for several years with no problems. We have found the staff, hygienists and dentists to be friendly, helpful and professional. I personally have issue's visiting dentists but Dr Rodica Pirtea and Marguerite Kelly soon made me feel at ease.

March 2017
Like most people I have never been keen to visit the dentist but must say that the experience with CDC as as good as it gets, nice and friendly team, well organised.

March 2017.
I am having implants fitted which involves the removal of four teeth, the placement of a temporary denture and associated oral surgery, including bone graft. This was conducted last Friday afternoon in a marathon session. Everything had been planned and explained to me, in writing and verbally. Appropriate medication was provided afterwards with clear instructions as to use, along with the opportunity to contact the dental surgeon in the ensuing days. This I did, as I was concerned about the degree of swelling and discomfort. The extent of discomfort , rather than pain, must not be underestimated. This leads to an immediate change in diet, to soft, crushed, tepid, foods and non alcoholic drinks. It is vital to retain ones belief that the long term benefits outweigh the short term discomfort. It is also a good idea to think in terms of giving oneself a few days off work whilst the trauma settles down. I had the weekend, but it was not enough. I cannot fault the treatment and levels of patient attention.

February 2017.
Really impressed. Have just joined the practice and have found everyone to be welcoming and professional. I was worried about the hygienist appointment after painful past experiences but Jackie was excellent.

February 2017.
Having been a patient at Croft Dental Centre for over two years, I can highly recommend the practice for both NHS and private treatment. Nicholaos and Jackie have always been excellent both in standard of work and manner, and private pricing is always fair. All the staff I have dealt with have been very pleasant and polite.

Visited January 2017.
I had two implants a couple of days ago. Sharmilla performed the procedure and I am glad to say that it all went very smoothly. I would recommend this practice without hesitation in the manner of their service and the professionalism displayed.

Visited December 2016.
Absolutely elated to have found this Dental practice. Croft Dental was recommended to me from a friend as I needed to see a Dentist asap. Croft Dental managed to fit me in at short notice for the following day. The whole experience was professional and friendly from the Practice manager to the receptionist. My experience with the Dentist exceeded my expectations right from the start. I felt that I received sound advice and options were discussed after an analysis of my x rays. During my treatment I was constantly updated on progress and to top it off, my treatment was pain free. Always a winner! Thanks again Croft Dental and to my new Dentist, you have a new client!

I tried to leave some feedback re my treatment at Croft Dental but somehow could not, so I decided to write to you. I had an appointment with Priya last Monday, I was booked to have a tooth extracted. I cannot express in words just how terrified I was leading up to this treatment. I was at our previous dentist 27 years before joining Croft, never once did I ever consider any treatments without sedation, and I was never encouraged to do so without sedation. I was terrified, so much that I do not remember even getting into the dentist chair, it was a blur, but Priya was amazing, she talked me through every stage of the treatment, she is extremely professional, I trusted her and my tooth was extracted before I knew it..65 years old and I can now say my fear of dentists disappeared that morning.I am so grateful. So...if anyone reads this and are nervous about visiting a dentist, Croft Dental is the practice for you!

"This dentist surgery is amazing. For many years, I've felt that as an nhs patient, I have to put up with anything a dentist offers and just be grateful that I have a dentist at all. I have had some really bad dentists and as a result, I have developed a true fear. A friend recommended Croft to me and they have been wonderful, they have taken my fears into account, been kind, patient and allowed me to have an input into all aspects of my treatment. My dentist discusses what they are going to do and offers to stop if I'm getting stressed. So far, they haven't had to. I've just had nasty root canal work done and I can assure you, I've had minor fillings that were more traumatic at other surgeries. I can't speak highly enough of this surgery and I know that keeping up to date with my treatment won't be any hardship. In the past I've dreaded appointments for days in advance, and although my fear is still there, I know I'll be treated with kindness, respect and courtesy and there will be no nasty surprises. At last, getting my teeth treated is no hardship. All the staff are lovely and very professional, the surgery is clean and welcoming and appointment availability is brilliant. "

"I am just at the beginning of Invisalign, with my doctor having been through the treatment her self all appointments so far have been informative and clearly understood. Their dental cover is excellent value for money. I was impressed to receive a personal warming welcome from the practice manager on arrival of my first appointment. All steps have been clearly articulated to me, and the process has been swift. I was so impressed I have now moved all my dental care to this practice."

"Great practice, would highly recommend. After my old dentist retired, being a nervous patient, it took me a long time to pluck up the courage to find someone new. I am so glad I chose The Croft Dental Practice. They called with a cancellation appointment so I was seen quickly. I needed a couple of things doing but the appointments were very close together so I didn't have too long to work myself up! It was totally unnecessary worry as the dentist was wonderful, calm, patient and after my first two replacement filings I was barely bothered about coming back for the last one! Thanks so much for putting me at ease, even booked the 6 month check up appointment on the way out, never done that before! Receptionists are lovely and nothing is too much trouble. Highly, highly recommend The Croft Dental Practice 10/10"

"This really is a 5 star service - I've always been a nervous dental patient and hadn't been to my dentist for sometime when a broken tooth forced me to seek an appointment with my old dental practice. I called them at the beginning of August to be told that the first available appointment with my own dentist was at the beginning of September. As I was in pain I wasn't willing to wait that long and so I booked an appointment at the Croft Dental Practice, having seen their good reviews on the NHS website. They were able to offer me an appointment within a week and I have nothing but praise for the treatment I have received. Both the hygienist and the dentist who treated me were extremely considerate and gentle and I wouldn't hesitate to recommend them. The dentist was particularly patient and administered a literally painless injection prior to my treatment. Overall, a great service and I'll definitely be sticking with Croft in the future."

Visited in August 2015.
"Restored my trust ! - As a very very nervous patient due to past experience I was a absolutely petrified of going to the dentist, so much so I had not been in a long time. I even cried walking into the room but the dentist was amazing. They calmed my nerves, kept me in the loop all the way through the check up and made sure I was aware of all my options. I'm so glad I found this dentist and hope that over time I will feel less and less nervous. Thank you guys so much."

“I called to make an appointment for my daughter who was suffering with toothache. We were registered at a different surgery, but were keen to move as their care historically had been very poor. As soon as I explained to the Croft receptionist they quickly arranged an appointment for my daughter. My daughter was extremely nervous about having an injection, but the dentist was amazingly patient and talked her through the procedure. She had the injection, which she hardly felt and the dentist was able to fill her tooth. I would recommend this surgery in a heart beat. We had more care here in 45 minutes than we have had in the last couple of years in our current surgery. We are now in the process of registering all of our family with the Croft surgery."

"I was a bit sceptical about moving from my NHS-only dentist to this one. The decision was made easier because it was a 15-minute car ride to the previous one, but I can (and do) walk to The Croft.

It was certainly a good decision! Although the previous dentist listened to my requests, The Croft actually asks me things and, I'm sure, would do what is necessary without the cost & aggro of a referral to a private specialist, which cost has been very significant before. I trust their judgement and can't help but think how things that are, on the face of it, the same can be so very different in reality."

I was also shown exactly how to brush my teeth and what equipment I should use and I have been following that the the letter.
