I had a great experience with Olivia today at my dental check up. It had been a while since I’d been in to the practice but she was so warm and welcoming that I quickly felt at ease. She worked in a way that was gentle and non invasive, and she explained everything to me along the way. She even showed me my X-rays and explained what we were looking at on the screen. Olivia also spent time answering my questions in a way that was both comprehensive and understandable.A person-centred approach to dentistry! Thank you Olivia 🤓👍read more

Thoroughly recommend Olivia and her team. I am quite terrified of needles and when she said that the injection would be painless, it was so! I just couldn’t believe it.Olivia first talked me through the process, offered music to help me relax, numbed the area with some gel and then very slowly got the anaesthesia in, I only knew it was done because I was told! If only more dentists would learn to do things this way, no-one would ever be afraid of coming to the dentist!! 5*read more

I had been following the practice on socials for a while, as I had been thinking about going private. I had been pushed into making a decision lately due to cracking one of my back teeth ,and the old filling that I had there coming away completely. What was still there was extremely sharp. Tried to get an appointment with my own nhs dentist and told it would be at least 4 months wait and I knew I couldn’t wait that long. I phoned the queens drive to see if they could help and who I spoke to couldn’t have been more my lovely. She fitted me in on an emergency appointment within two weeks. I was running late for the appointment and would have understood if I needed to reschedule, again the receptionist couldn’t have been more understanding and helpful. Thankfully Olivia could still see me and was absolutely amazing. She sorted out my problem for now and clearly explained what might have to happen to fix it permanently. The tech that was used to show me what she could see was so helpful and then to be shown my X-ray and pointed out the issues with my tooth was brilliant!I felt extremely comfortable within the practice and I’m actually looking forward to my next appointment in 2 weeks! Olivia, her dental nurse and the receptionist provided an all round great service and a lovely atmosphereread more

Highly recommend the pain free approach. Can’t thank John Paul enough for helping me choose a smile makeover and doing the work. Felt covid safe throughout and couldn’t believe how pain free the work was. I’m usually a nervous patient at the dentist but ended up sitting in the chair laughing whilst hanging work done! So pleased with the results too and smiling with confidence again.read more

I contacted queens drive dentist as I had seen them advertising on Facebook about pain free dentistry, which to me sounded excellent. I've always had really bad anxiety at even the thought of visiting the dentist, so bad I hadn't visited a dentist in around 5 years. On my first visit to queen's drive I was greeted by very friendly reception staff, once there I had a consultation with Amber who broke everything down for me and gave me the full treatment plan, I went away and thought about it, I then returned and had a check up with the dentist olivia and she confirmed for me everything that was required to correct my teeth. I had various teeth removed, couple of fillings, composite bonding and finally had a plate made with 4 teeth on it to finally give me a smile I had waited years on. Olivia was very patient with me during these treatments and always made sure it was "PAIN FREE". I would 100% recommend coming here for your dental treatment, you will be made to feel relaxed and assured you can have a break whenever you require during your treatment. I can't thank olivia enough for giving me my smile back.read more

Its true pain free filling! Had to have an old filling replaced; not had one in years, my, how things have moved on. Utterly professional team at QP. Didn't feel a thing from the local anaesthetic injection all through the drilling and filling (although the sound of the drill brings back memories!). Completely relaxed. Walked away and completed the rest of my day, forgetting I'd ever been to the dentist. No strange 'bite', no sensitivity, no pain. Wonderful. Thanks Pamela & Ellie and all the team for an excellent job.read more
