It’s Taken 30 Years To Get My Mum Over Her Dentist Phobia

Dr Malhi is the greatest dentist in the world, not just because he’s good at his job but because he’s a nice person too. It’s taken 30 years to get my mum over her dentist phobia and he’s done it in 4 appointments.

All of the staff here are wonderful, nothing is ever rushed and there’s always time for you. I would absolutely recommend anyone with a phobia of dentists go here. I had braces here I was told at a previous orthodontists that it would take 7 years. 1 year and 2 months later my braces are off and everyone’s getting sick of my toothy selfies!!

Anyone looking to get braces or any dental cosmetics for that matter, DO IT!! Thank you Cavendish!! You’re all amazing!!

I Would Recommend This Dentist To Other

Final part of my treatment today was a wisdom tooth filling. The dentist was very professional and did their work explaining all through. As usual not much in the way of pain and the whole thing was complete in about 20 minutes. Highly recommended. 

I previously wrote a review about this dentistry , headlining that they were uninformative and unclean. Since writing that review I have constantly seen cleaners in the practice, and have spoken to my dentist about the mixed communication with my filling. Yes my filling was uncomfortable but after a long discussion this was inevitable.

I really do appreciate that i was given enough time to have this explained to me and this reassuring me enabling me to understand that after all I received the best possible care. In this practice feedback is welcome, taken on board and acted upon. Dentists genuinely have your best interest at heart and the practice manager goes above and beyond to meet customer satisfaction.

I would recommend this dentist to others.

Nicola Really Put Me At Ease

I had brilliant experience at Cavendish dental practice today, after a terrible experience at another dentist I have an extreme phobia but the therapist Nicola really put me at ease!

She was fantastic, explained everything, allowed the treatment to go at my pace and generally made me feel calm and less frightened.

Clean friendly environment with lovely staff. I’m almost not worried about returning in three weeks, well done Cavendish dental!

Kelly Grogan

Always So Gentle And Caring

I recently had two crowns which had to be prepared for in my upper jaw. Mr Malhi and David are always so gentle and caring.

During the long two hours of treatment and lying very still, I felt so relaxed and calm I’m afraid I fell asleep for a few moments on three or four occasions!, much to their amusement!

In all my 60 odd years this is, without doubt, the best dentist practice I’ve ever visited and I feel so lucky. Reception, nurses, therapist, everyone is so cheerful, friendly, well organised and positive. Keep up the excellent work everyone and thank you!

Mr Philip Harrison

The Result Immediately Boosted My Confidence

I’m returning to professional acting (after a break to build my own business) and have a few auditions approaching. My teeth had deteriorated and it was a massive issue for me (not least because I needed new photographs etc).

After attending several appointments to stabilise the poor condition of my teeth and to prevent future damage, I asked Dr Malhi if he could help to improve the appearance of a front tooth with an obvious hole and damage due to smoking.

He was very sympathetic and booked an appointment for me in time for the photo session. I was absolutely delighted with the result, but more importantly, it immediately boosted my confidence.

So now I only have to worry about my acting ability and not my teeth! All members of staff have been very friendly, caring and polite. Thank you so much.

Brendan Christopher

Sedation Was The Best Course Of Action

I recently had I.V Sedation for an extraction as I am a really nervous patient when it comes to getting any dental procedure, even getting in the dentist’s chair is a task in itself.

I have to say Dr Malhi and Clare were both fantastic with me, they both have the patience of a saint. I.V Sedation was definitely the best course of action for myself.

I don’t remember a thing about the procedure. I would highly recommend I.V Sedation. I wouldn’t hesitate to have it again.

Miss J Woolley

I Can Actually Smile Now With Confidence

I would just like to take this opportunity to thank you very much for the dental work you carried out for me. I was never happy with my smile and had considered various options over the years.

You advised me to have the Invisalign treatment and fully explained how it would work and the possible results.

I was a little apprehensive in the beginning but agreed to have the treatment. On occasions when I was worried or concerned about anything I came to see you and you put my mind at rest. I must say I was so impressed with the way my teeth had re-aligned. I am really pleased with the outcome.

I can actually smile now with confidence, especially after having the whitening kit too. Many people have commented on my teeth and how good they look which is all down to the treatment I had.

Excellent value for money and worth every penny. I would recommend Dr Malhi every time.

Mr K Rowbottom

You Have Changed My View About Going To The Dentist

I have recently joined with the Cavendish Dental and to my surprise I think it’s the best decision I have made in a long time. Just to give you a bit of a background information about my history with dental practices it used to be very painful and unprofessional for me 95% of my visits.

I used to hate going to the dentist and am sure I’m not on my own with that experience. My wife recommended the dentist she uses at Cavendish and so I thought I would give it one last try not expecting great expectations due to previous experiences.

I can honestly say that the Cavendish dentist has won me round and has changed my way of thinking when ever I have a pain in my tooth I will pick up that phone and make an appointment not like before we’re I used to have painkillers instead of going to the dentist. I would like to start off by saying that my experience with Cavendish is a great one due to the fact that the staff are very approachable and knowledgeable.

When you go to your appointment you are met with a smile and made to feel welcome. When you go into the rooms your dentist treats you like a human being with dignity and respect which is very important for the patient because it puts them at ease and gives them confidence. Everything is explained fully to the patient and the final outcome is based on patient and dentist decision which is a good bond to have.

The dental clinic is very clean and hazard free with signs everywhere to where you have to go. I was expecting a lot of pain as I was having a crown on my front tooth and as to my astonishment the pain threshold was a bare minimum which shows good professionalism from the dentist and I was not told any lies.

The dentist had very good all round knowledge as to what they were saying and doing all of the time while I was under their care. I would like to take this opportunity to say a big thank you and keep up the good work. My confidence levels have definitely improved and I trust this dentist and their decision making in reference to my well being.

I was greeted with a smile and left with a smile. In general the staff are all very friendly and professional and the relationship between patient and staff is excellent. I could go on and on with praises for Cavendish dental practice but would like for you to try it out for yourselves and see for yourselves. Once again keep up the excellent all round service and you have changed my view about going to the dentist again thank you.

I will 100% be recommending this practise to my friends and family and work colleagues so they can share the same experience I have had.


Really Appreciate All The Help

To Dr Malhi and all the Team at Cavendish Dental Practice, I would like to thank you all for everything you have done for me.

I really appreciate all the help and extra time that has been spent sorting out my teeth and other problems. Many thanks.

Annika Morris

Felt Very Supported

Truly professional and very caring in the way they handled my treatment. I am always nervous when going to the dentist but everything was explained in a calm a reasonable manner. I was always asked if I was okay during treatment and I felt very supported. The doctors are a credit to their profession. Thoroughly recommend them!!


Kind, Friendly And Reassuring

Megan and her assistant were amazing with my 6 year old today whilst having a tooth out. Kind, friendly and reassuring. Reception are lovely and welcoming too and so are other staff.

Lissa Jones

Dr Malhi And His Wife Are Brilliant

5 stars for someone who used to have panic attacks when going to the dentist. On Friday I walked in alone to an emergency appt. I was seen by Dr Malhi and his assistant.

They were so good and patient with me. Had a big tooth removed all by myself. Both Dr Malhi and his wife are brilliant. You be patient with them and they will be patient with you. Thank you.

Deb Robinson

Very Happy With The Results

Mr Malhi is a good dentist. I had my orthodontic treatment from him also, I’m very happy with the results. The staff at the practice are also excellent and deal with any issues that arise.

I Feel I Can Talk Much More Confidently To People And Smile So Much More

All of the staff at Cavendish were very understanding and supportive throughout my treatment. As a result of Dr Malhi’s work I am a lot more confident and happier.

Finally having this treatment has relinquished all my childhood emotional distress. Throughout my life I had spent so long staying away from all the social gatherings and meeting new people just because of my smile. 

This treatment has changed everything for me.  I feel I can talk much more confidently to people and smile so much more. 

Gradually I feel myself returning. I’m so glad i had this treatment at Cavendish Dental Practice.


A well organised Dental practise overall and Zee my dentist and Dave helping; are a skilled team with nothing being too much trouble to make you feel at ease. Thanks for the improvement in my dental health.

I suffer with chronic anxiety and panic attacks and even with medication I struggle to go out! My visit to Cavendish dentist was difficult but the support and understanding was fabulous. When I started to have a panic attack the receptionist took me to a quiet area giving me her time and care to calm me down. My dentist was also supportive, understanding and so very kind! This level of care is exceptional and I am very lucky to be a patient there.

Debbie Topliss April 6, 2023

I am a patient of Cavendish Dental Practice for quite a few years now. All the staff members of the practice are very welcoming, kind and helpful. A couple of years ago I became a patient of Dr Clarkson and I never looked back. Knowledgeable, gentle, patient. Will always explain everything in detail and take time to put her patient in ease. Thank you for making my visits less stressful!

From the receptionists to the head dentist, they are all exceptionally professional and nice with it. I have been with the practice a number of years, I took my daughter there and now my granddaughter goes there. I have never had an emergency with my teeth, presumably because of the work and attention they get at my appointments mostly with my dental hygienists Nichola, the nearest I have come is pain due to gum disease and I was given a timely appointment to suite the problem. Overall, I travel to the Cavendish to be seen by this wonderful team and they are worth the time and money.

I suffer with quite bad anxiety with the dentist and didn't go for around 10 years. I plucked up the courage to go for a check up after reading reviews online about this dentist. I was greeted with the lovely Nicola and she keeps me attending my appointments, she's everything a dentist needs to be and more! If more dentists had the same attitude as her, I think fewer people would be scared of the dentist.

I have been using the Cavendish dental practice for years now and I can confidently say that Nurse Aneta and Doctor Poonam Chitkara always make sure I’m comfortable during any procedure or check up. As much as I hate needles they always give me a hand to hold and breaks iff anything’s too painful. I never feel worried for my appointments and they always listen and answer to any requests or questions I have, I always leave with a smile on my face knowing the work on my teeth has been done perfectly. Never any issues or complains, Highly recommend. -Victoria :)

I have such a huge phobia of teeth, going to the dentist has always been a struggle, I attended Cavendish and needed a fair bit of work done due to how long I had left going.. however Dr shetwa shetye was amazing alongside Gemma who was working alongside her, both were calm and reassuring. I felt listened too and taken good care of. I am going to try and be less nervous next time. Highly recommend Cavendish dental. Thank you Dr Shetwa and Gemma xxx
