Patient Testimonials

Whether you are a new or existing member thank you, for choosing our practice. It is our aim to provide the highest quality dental care in a relaxed friendly environment.

Our fundamental philosophy is that everything we do within the practice is centered entirely around what is best for you as an individual.

That’s why we value what our patients have to say – after all, it’s our patients that make our practice what it is.

Here are a few reviews and comments from our patients:

  • I attended yesterday for my appointment and I want to say a big thank to everyone on the team  for making the experience professional, relaxed, caring, informative and dare I say humorous and fun.  The Scottish lady on telephone reception was the first point of contact and was informative, knowledgeable and caring, and immediately allayed my concerns by her knowledgeable answers that if not for her intervention would have escalated for 4 hours prior to my appointment.  The second point of contact was the receptionist at Park rd who was also caring and attentive on my arrival.  Then the ‘main act came on stage’, Geoff and nurse … fantastic …for the first time in 62 years, dentists don’t scare me.  Every step of the procedure explained as it happened , in an easy chatty professional style that opens up  the world of dentistry as being very interesting and not a threat to my mental and physical well being.   On a very serious note the whole process of the lead up to the dental procedure and the recovery is made far less traumatic and far easier to recover from when you can have 100% faith in the dentist and his support staff.   That’s all I as a patient can ask for, just being able to rely on a team of professionals that give you their best efforts day in day out so again a big thank you to you all.  Please feel free to use my email to encourage other patients who are fearful of the dentist that they don’t need to be.

  • I’ve recently finished my Invisalign treatment and quite literally can not stop smiling at the results! Matthew and the team at Ivory Dental have been incredible and really do create such a friendly environment and I couldn’t be happier with how my teeth look now. Thank you so much! Eloise Downes 01/02/19
  • Big Thanks to Geoff and his staff  for their professionalism, humour and first class service tonight … all of  ‘the team’ made me feel valued, cared for and very very relaxed from the moment I walked in to the surgery .  The ‘implant team’ displayed an energy, cohesion and passion for their professional duties which gave me so much confidence … they also kept me informed on their duties and the ‘next step’ throughout the surgical process .  The professional interaction between the members of the team as they conducted the surgery was absolutely fascinating and actually made me forget my fears and become part of ‘the team’ rather than just being ‘the patient’.  Thank you again.

  • I have been using this wonderful dental practice for years and cannot fault them. My two young children are also patients here too, and have always gone along happily, they’re never scared or nervous, and are always made to feel completely welcome and comfortable by all the staff. Would happily recommend.  Samantha Wells 08/10/18
  • I have been with Ivory for many years now. Fantastic customer service, always welcomed by reception with a kind friendly smile. The practice is always very clean and modern. Any emergency issues are seen to very quickly and the children actually love going to the dentist because they feel at ease and reassured.  Anonymous 05/10/18
  • I hadn’t been to the dentist in over 4 years as I had an extremely off putting painful experience at my previous practice. I finally plucked up courage to try out Ivory Dental as I’d heard only good reviews, and I’m so glad I did! So far I’ve been back twice for two separate treatments and I’ve felt completely at ease and NO PAIN whatsoever at both appointments. Matthew did an amazing job and I’ve finally gotten over my fear of dentists. Can’t recommend this practice enough. Anonymous 26/09/18
  • It was my first visit ever to a dental therapist today as usually I would refuse to go and Ruth would undertake the therapy instead.  I attended my appointment with Claire today and just wanted to say what a positive experience I had and how reassuring and caring she was. Anonymous 21/09/18
  • Great personal service from these guys. Like one big family at ivory dental care.. nothing is too much trouble . Excellent professional service and I’m very happy with my results.  Anonymous 20/06/18
  • Have had a fear of dentists as I am sure others do , visited today and received first class treatment in a fantastic environment thank you to you all.  Stephen Singleton 07/02/18
  • This place is a diamond in Blackpool dentistry and close to my heart for so many reasons (about 30 of them!�) I forgot how amazing they can be and was reminded when I had to undergo an unpleasant procedure. Georgina and Icky were absolutely incredible. They will give you all the information you need (but not too much if you’re squeamish!� just enough), reassure you and make you at ease and even hold your hand when you’re scared! I almost wish I could have it again (not really God forbid!! but it was a very positive experience after all and I was dreading it). Money well spent.  Anonymous 21/11/17
  • Just completed a course of treatment for a root canal problem at Ivory Dental Care, & if you are at all worried about pain let me reassure you that I experienced nothing more than a slight discomfort. I would like to thank Scott Singleton, & all the staff at both surgeries in Blackpool for the excellent treatment I had. No-one needs to be afraid of seeing a dentist anywhere, but especially at Ivory Dental, Blackpool. See you for my check-up in the Spring! Many thanks to you all. Anonymous 31/10/17
  • Massive thank you to Geoff for once again, making a very nervous patient feel at ease! A wisdom tooth filling for a phobic patient is more than terrifying but as always, the staff at Ivory make you feel completely comfortable! Thank you! Anonymous 31/10/17

  • I would like to thank Geoff Readshaw and the staff at Ivory Dental Care for your highly professional and reassuring manner throughout my treatment for dental implants. I have no hesitation for recommending your services to others. Ps I can finally bite an apple! Paul Bell 06/09/17
  • Richard Baines, you are the best dentist I’ve ever had,  you are so nice, thank you for being so patient & understanding, The same goes to all the staff too, Ivory is the best dental practice I’ve ever been too, thanks again. Anonymous 01/08/17
  •  Many thanks for the excellent service provided by Richard Baines and his assistant for the hundred percent care and attention received. I am more than satisfied with the result of the work that they have carried out on my behalf. I would certainly recommend their services to anyone. Ian Muir 28/06/17
  • I have not visited a dentist for 10 years I have a real phobia of dentists but it got to the stage where I was in desperate need to see a dentist. I first telephoned and spoke to a receptionist who was very understanding and made me an appointment to see Mr Richard Baines on arrival at the practice they were aware of my apprehension and was very kind and understanding and stayed with me while I waited to be seen.  I cannot thank Mr Baines enough he spent time with me just talking so he could understand my fears. I have since been back for two appointments 12th & 19th of April I had the sedation both times I was so well looked after by Mr Hunter who administered the sedation and all of the team in the room.   Thank you once again Richard and to all the staff that work there.  Denise Cochrane 21/04/17
  • A delightful experience, Dentist was genuinely passionate about teeth, a nice change from the previous practice I attended. Warm welcome and my appointment was right on time. Great service from the staff, I will look forward to going back! Anonymous 06/02/17
  • I have been a patient with this practice for many years.Unfortunately a very nervous one. Recently diagnosed with severe anxiety. As you can imagine a visit to the dentist is a really big deal for me. However, the staff are all so caring and compassionate always explaining what they are going to do, which helps me to feel at ease. Nothing is too much trouble for them. I would happily recommend this practice to anyone. Anonymous 16/01/17
  • I would just like to praise your team on such a friendly professional service again.  I have been a patient for years and have always had a great experience. Ruth is such an asset to your practice. She is so calming professional and friendly.  I have lived all over the country due to relocating with my job. So therefore had many practices and dentists. Many people get anxious when visiting the dentist and I was one if those patients. Not any more  Well done Ivory Dental Care. And especially thank you Ruth and the  friendly reception team. I understand how important feedback is these days and teams attitude and behavior is so important to building a business reputation. Great practice. Graham Dickinson 08/09/16
  • The whole experience has been very positive, a very reliable service.  All staff were helpful and very understanding of my mum who was anxious during all treatment. Staff were welcoming, kind and treated my mum with respect throughout all her treatment and visits to the practice.  All appointments went as planned with a phone call as a reminder which is very useful. Overall a very good and positive experience and my mum is pleased with the outcome and would recommend the practice to friends and family. Christine Ryan on behalf of Eileen Ryan 25/01/16
  • Great dentist and staff, really look after you. I have had very bad gagging for many years and not been able to visit a dentist until I visited Ivory dentist. Thanks to Ivory I have been having sedative dentistry. Special thanks to “Icky” Miss Abrol for taking time to help me. Karl Greenwood 10/11/15
  • Just had my second treatment for closing my gaps in my teeth with bonding. All I can say is I wish I had it done years ago! Love my new smile! Looking forward to having some finishing touches done but I’m already more than happy! Lovely dentist was Scott, would recommend him and his team to anyone – Laura Earnshaw 09/10/15
  • So glad I chose to come to Ivory. Icky and Julie are brilliant and I’ve never felt so comfortable going to a dentist before. The receptionists are always lovely too! Thank you for being so patient with me and helping to alleviate my fears 🙂 – Gemma Louise Fallon 24/09/15
  • I am a 39 yr old, independent, single mum to 2 fantastic boys and to say I was/am scared of the dentist would be an understatement. However, almost a year ago, after constant dental pain and much research I decided to face my demons and called Ivory Dental Care. After an initial chat on the phone, with a very reassuring lady, I was booked in to see Ektaa Abrol. From the very first minute I arrived irrationally crying, shaking, snotty and petrified – both Ikky and Julie (my dental nurse) went out of their way to help me. Even sitting in the chair was a huge step for me, but they let me go at my own pace, and supported me through every single step of the process.  From the very bottom of my heart I couldn’t recommend these 2 wonderful ladies anymore.   Thank you x – Lisa Law 27/07/15
