Loved the ambient music, the fresh blooms, Buddha as our second dental nurse, & that comfy sponge - soft blue bomb of a dentist chair made my first dentist visit with you a breeze!"

  • "I took my 5 year old daughter to Dr Nish to have her tooth extracted. He was extremely gentle, patient and reassuring. He made her do breathing exercises and gave her an injection without her even realising it. A huge thank you to you and your Assistant for the amazing service that we received. I will definitely be back and will bring the rest of my family to see you."
