"Kirklees Locala Dentistry Service"

About: Locala Community Partnerships CIC / Dental services

(as the patient),

I was referred to the Locala Dentistry Service as I have a dental phobia as I am sure do many other. I was referred to Simon Mavi who listened to my story and referred me to Amanda Tyman who is a Dental Therapist.

Amanda has been absolutely brilliant. Whilst I havent conquered my fear 100% I am able to walk into the surgery with confidence when I see Amanda as I know that she takes my fears seriously whilst she has to do what she has to do. She allows me to fully control the procedures that she has carried out she stops when I need her to, she fully explains everything that she is going to do before she does it.

She has done such a terrific job that I have even managed to have 2 fillings without the need for a local! if someone had said that I would have been doing that 18 months ago I would have said never in a million years.

If you live in the Kirklees area and you are referred to Simon and Amanda you can rest assured that you will be well taken care of. They genuinely care about their patients and allow plenty of time for every appointment.

Many thanks for your time and patience
