Real patient testimonials

David Jessop
“My whole experience of St. Peter’s Place Dental Practice has been excellent, and I can honestly say that my 7 implants and new dentures have changed my life. I can now eat anything with confidence, and am no longer embarrassed when I smile.

Chris, Cath and Suzy all made me more than welcome and guided me through the whole journey with care and attention, and always explained thoroughly exactly what was happening.

My only regret is that I didn’t do this years ago, but I am only too willing to pass on my experience at St. Peter’s Dental Practice to anyone.”David Jessop
“I had thought about having dental implants for some time and eventually decided to make enquiries about the procedure. I was recommended to see Chris Whitehead at St Peter’s Place Dental Centre who explained the procedure in detail.

Following the consultation I decided to proceed with the implant treatment. On the day of my appointment I was reassured and treated with the upmost courtesy and professionalism from Chris and his very caring staff.

Three years on and I can honestly say that having dental implants has been a life-changing event for me.”Susan Clowes
“The quality of care I have received here over the years has been very good. The treatment has ranged from the usual checkups, to fillings and implants.

The friendliness of the staff and the comfortable waiting room puts me at my ease. The treatment has been of high quality and always explained when asked for. The hygiene and cleanliness of the surgery is excellent.

I have no hesitation in recommending this practice to anyone seeking private dentistry.”Ann Shadbolt
“I was with my previous dentist for 20 years, but it was taken over by a franchise group. Following this takeover my dental care suffered and as a result things took a turn for the worse.

I’ve have had almost all treatments Chris Whitehead has to offer and it feels it has been money well spent. Good quality dental care is not cheap, but until you face the possibility of tooth loss you can’t imagine the overall impact it has on day-to-day life.

Anyone considering treatment or consultation should go and see Chris. He gives honest, caring and highly experienced advice.”Anon
“My gums were receding, my teeth were loose and I had gum disease. After going through the various options of treatment with Chris we decided that I would have my top teeth removed and four titanium implants placed into my upper jaw. It doesn’t sound pleasant, but I honestly can’t remember any pain. Then a set of plastic teeth were made to clip onto the implants and although easy to remove, you don’t get any movement when they are fitted in. Now I feel more confident when smiling or talking etc. and eating is much easier.

For me it was money and time well spent because I was constantly having trouble with my teeth and regularly visiting the dentist. Now I have no problems and just see Chris twice a year for a checkup.

Anybody considering treatment should go and have a chat with Chris and the girls. It doesn’t feel like you’re at the dentist. Chris makes it very easy to answer any problems or worries you have. He will give you his honest opinion and also when doing the treatments he is constantly checking with you that everything is feeling alright; if not he will stop and make sure you are comfortable again.”Ged Wilson
“Three generations of our family have received regular dental treatment at St Peter’s Place Dental Centre over a period of almost 30 years. We can definitely say that our dental health and hygiene have improved as a result.

Chris and his team have always provided sympathetic solutions to any problems which may arise, and they are always helpful when it comes to arranging appointments, either urgent or otherwise.”Harold Blythe
“ The patient care is 100%. The team all make sure that I am well looked after, as they know I suffer from dental phobia and do everything to put me at ease. The practice is so clean and hygienic. The staff cannot do enough for you and they are so polite and helpful. They can take your mind off being there, which is more than helpful to me. They have a brilliant sense of humour. I could not ask for anything more from my practice.

P.S. The magazines are excellent.”Martin Hayhurst
“When I relocated to the Fylde Coast nine years ago I needed to find a new dental surgeon. Quite some years ago I was involved in a serious car accident and sustained facial fractures and considerable damage to my teeth. My existing crowns were no longer sustainable and I was in considerable pain. I was recommended to Chris Whitehead by a local dental technician.

After an in-depth consultation and given literature to read about the procedure, I opted to have top and bottom implants. That was eight years ago and have since been completely pain-free. It has been a very good investment for my health and appearance. I would advise anyone contemplating implants to talk to patients who have had the procedure.”Mary Evans
“I used to be quite frightened of the dentist. Now it doesn’t bother me at all. Chris and all his team have looked after me with lots of kindness and care.

When my dad died I had a lot of trouble with my teeth and I was regularly on the phone to the practice. Chris saw me every time I called and he treated me with lots and lots of patience and really did his best to help me.

So if you want a kind, caring dentist go and see Chris and all his lovely team and you will never be frightened again. Plus I have been with the practice for well over 20 years and I am a very grateful client.”Maureen Priestly
