I called these guys last night in severe pain at 8pm, just to enquire about prices. I was booked in for 9pm and back home by 10pm (even with a 20 minute drive!).
The cost of the out of hours extraction was £150, which i didn't think was too bad considering it was to remove a possessed molar that seemed to be rooted deep into my soul!!
I am not a big fan of the dentist, but the gentleman that dealt with me was polite, professional and friendly. He explained everything from start to finish and answered any questions that I had.
I would definitely use this company again in an emergency! - Thank youread more
Called in agony and desperation following days and nights of pain! Called at 7.15, got an appointment for 9.30 and was pain free and minus a nasty infected tooth by 10.30. Really friendly and reassuring, my faith in dentists has been restored!read more
Really great service here and very clean facilities. The dentist is very polite, explains everything he is doing and answers all questions. Last year, I was getting married and he really went above and beyond for me on my wedding week. Highly recommend.read more
Coupled with a childhood phobia of the dentist I was extremely apprehensive visiting the practice knowing I potentially required a molar tooth extraction.
Dr Rikki Dhody and his team acted in an extremely professional and calming manor. Rikki planned the procedure and has also organised a structure of follow up appointments to rectify additional dental issues. Thank-you so much Rikki; I will look forward to seeing you again soon.
I simply do not have any negative criticism to add to my review.read more
I went there this evening for a dental implant tightening, the dentist was professional polite and friendly. His wife is so lovely to talk too and a great team you can tell they want to help. Reasonable price for out of hours.read more
This review is on behalf of my mum, who has been using this dentist for the past six months. However I myself have had a filling and hygienist appointment here, and couldn't recommend them enough. I'm usually an anxious patient, but Dr Rikki and his staff have made me feel at ease!
"I started looking for a new dentist when I realised that my previous one was careless, as I got a root infection and a broken tooth shortly after visiting her. I asked around my friends for a good dentist, and they recommended The Dentist. I was told that this place charges more, but is very much worth it because they save teeth other dentists would rather pull.
The doctor did a thorough check up on my teeth and started the treatment. I've received a root canal and a tooth extraction of my broken tooth. I have decided to go ahead and get two tooth implants put in- one to replace the newly removed tooth, and the second to fill a gap from a tooth I had pulled 21 years ago.
So far I've had a bone graft and one of the implants fully carried out. I've also had a crown put in, and I'm currently due to have the second one put in soon.
I would highly recommend this dentist because they work to a high professional standard, carry out their work fast and thoroughly, with jewellery-like precision. Most importantly I feel like I have their complete attention and care, which is something I found my past dentists to be lacking, as they often seemed to be distracted.
Even if you have a poor understanding of English, they do a great job of explaining everything. I've not had any complications during my treatment, and I am very happy. The doctor and the nurse are brilliant. I would highly recommend using this practice."
Out of hours response was excellent. Not only was the tooth problem dealt with but an excellent explanation was given. More time was spent explaining the situation with advice than was spent on the tooth. I was very grateful for this.
As an aside, I am a psychotherapist who treats phobias - would definitely suggest this practice for anyone with excessive fear of dentistry. Incidentally, my tooth was extracted with almost zero pain or discomfort.
Sooo nice to be pain free! I am not the best when it comes to going to the dentist and get very nervous and anxious but this man was great. Thank you so so much. Brilliant service and lovely peopleread more
I had a wisdom tooth that had been causing me severe mouth pain for the last 4-5 days. After calling around 6 other practices I found The Dentist and managed to get an appointment within the hour (I called at 9:10 and had an appointment at 9:40).
Turns out my wisdom tooth had no room to come through any further so was impacting on my back molar, causing swelling and horrible pressure pain.
This was my first ever ‘proper’ dental procedure. As someone that’s always had pretty good teeth and never needed work done, the thought of having a tooth extracted was petrifying!
Rikki was AMAZING; super friendly and understanding, he explained everything and had the tooth out in minutes (once the anaesthesia had kicked in). The injections themselves were a breeze too and he was really careful to hide any scary instruments before he used them, which I thought was a brilliantly thoughtful touch!
Highly recommend for any nervous patients living in the Aldridge/Walsall area.read more
Dirty and unprofessional!instruments unsterilised,table for instruments with gross stains of coffee!was told tooth infection as dentist not capable to differentiate from apical resection!obviously no antibio prescribed as there was no infection!my tooth was recemented in a wrong position which now looks very weird! When told they wanted to drill it as oclusion is wrong now as well!please avoid at all cost, very bad medicine practiced there!will do an official complaint as well as this should not happen in this century!do not let yourself fooled by good reviews, if you read them all most of them are for extractions...read more
I ended up here last night after having excruciating tooth ache for 2-3 days and not being able to get an immediate appointment with my usual dentist. I drove all the way from Redditch to go here after the pain became unbearable. After speaking with 111, desperately trying to source a dentist, and them failing to help, my partner sourced this place by chance. I called up feeling deflated and in agony, and the lovely receptionist gave me an appointment within the hour. It was totally worth the drive! I was made to feel at total ease, the dentist was calm and professional, and explained the procedure in great detail. A totally refreshing experience, after having such an extensive procedure such as a root canal, (first time) I wasn’t in any pain or discomfort throughout or after the procedure. I have woken up today slightly sore (which was already advised �) but the terrible tooth ache has totally gone. I honestly must say if you wasn’t such a distance, I would be more than happy for this place to be my regular dentist’s. thanks for restoring my confidence in dentists! The service provided was second to none. I have no hesitation In recommending this place to anyone. Thank you again for your speedy, professional and caring service.read more

Would highly recommend. rang this dentist after being in pain all night and was so pleased when they could fit me in so quickly. receptionist and dentist very helpful and tooth extraction was pain free. thank youread more
Rhikki, his nurse and the receptionist are very friendly and welcoming. I only ever go when I am in pain ( fear of dentist....please don't take it personally) and everytime he takes the time to explain fully what the problem is and my options. Instead of sending me away with antibiotics and come back in a week he starts the treatment straight away if I wish. Top class service and I feel at ease....after plenty of anaesthetic.....� very pleased with his recent work. I will definitely be keeping on top of my check ups thank you!! � xread more
Upon finding my wisdom tooth had erupted Dr Riki removed my tooth for me the same day. Although sceptical at first, this was very helpful as it prevented me being nervous before hand and I feel more at ease about going to the dentist now. I had to go back for further check ups during the healing of the tooth and given treatment to prevent infection. I did have a bit of a struggle with the first lady answering the phone. But I rang again and one of the receptionists Ellie was very helpful and friendly. Overall I found this surgery to be professional, fairly quick at getting me booked into appointments and more friendly than others I have been to in the past. The dentist also wrote a note for me as I had to cancel a flight which was a big help. I would recommend!read more
Got me in same day as a new client and extracted my tooth (First time having one taken out - I was really worried) They were all lovely. The receptionist is great and really calming and accommodating, The dentist was really nice, and literally took my tooth out within 45 seconds of the pliers going into my mouth? I imagined knees on my chest and heaving n pulling of the tooth, not at all, simple wiggle and out it came. I'm actually going back next week for a normal dentist check up, I NEVER DO THAT. I highly recommend them.read more
Had rct done here last year and a crown to which nothing but hassle since he was quick enough having nearly £600 plus off me, I'm no dentist but I'm also not thick I kept saying it was not right and now it's affected the tooth next to it constant abscess to which I've got to start all over again in 2 weeks, his wife is so rude it's untrue One way to reuin a business have her on reception, my partner has also had major trouble there with a plate that cost over £500 to which again it will "adjust" he went private not told us Cost £67 for a filling told my partner as he was doing it, couldn't make one app due to work commitments so rang to cancel to which they tried to charge him for but it was ok for them to ring him when he would be on his way to an appointment any they would say can we rearrange he's behind blah blah. Don't know how u sleep at night wripping people off �read more

Took my hubby here a couple of weeks ago. He was in agony as his filling had come out. A xray showed an abscess on the root. Hubby opted to have the tooth taken out.
