It can be hard to find the right dentist. So to help you decide, here are some customer reviews written by our patients. Now you can see for yourself why they choose hygeia dental care.

Jo has completely changed the way I feel about going to the dentist. Her fantastic treatments got my rather ‘shabby mouth’ renewed with white fillings and looking so much better. As I was getting married she suggested I might like to improve on my smile with whitening my teeth for the big day. I wouldn’t have thought about it myself but I was so glad she asked. The results were amazing and it was very simple to do. It gave me an extra confidence boost on the day, for my honeymoon, photos and the bonus is I still have fab teeth now long after the day! Put it on your “must do before the wedding” list – it made a big difference for me.

Anne Marie Horton, Stoke Gabriel, Devon

Brilliant: friendly; incredibly helpful; good advice. It’s fantastic that I can have treatment without painkillers as Jo is so gentle. I am so happy to have this practice and really appreciate you. Thank you so much.

Fiona Howard, Blackawton, Devon

Jo is amazing – I have complete confidence in her. Everything that is going to happen is discussed and all different options explained. I feel comfortable asking anything I need to know. Everyone is kind and friendly and welcoming and go out of their way to give you what you want.

Pamela Kassabian, Dartington, Devon

This practice has challenged my assumptions about what dental treatment can be. I’m not sure that I can quite say I look forward to the dentist, but this is as close as it can get! Caring, professional, humane and human. There is a warmth to the entire practice – the decor, staff and dental care is both confidence-giving and enlightening. I’m treated with dignity and respect but also friendliness and compassion. The entire experience, from planning treatment, the superb waiting room which offers intelligent and elegant facilities and the care offered in the surgery has been not just respectful of me as a person but as a valued individual.

Alden Rodwell, Bovey Tracey, Devon

Louise is the perfect “front of house”. Jo explains everything and shows you what is being done via photos.

Lynn Whetlor, Paignton, Devon

Wonderful. Friendly, welcoming, kind, thoughtful arrangements for patients to wait – and relax! – before their appointments. The practice staff clearly see me – and all their patients – as people to be recognised as people first, and you put patients at their ease.

Leaf Lovejoy, Stoke Gabriel, Devon

Best dentist I have ever had. Actually cares about their clients and the state of their teeth!

Karen Sahraian-Jahromi, South Brent, Devon

The wonderful Jo and her team have restored my faith in dentistry, and believe me, I have had some horrible experiences in the past. Appointments at Hygeia hold no fear or dread for me whatever, I know I am always in safe hands, and have found there only kindness and excellent care.

Di Cater, Totnes, Devon

Excellent – Everyone is so friendly and will help you with anything.

Claire Blagdon, Brixham, Devon

I think it is not like going to the dentist! And that is a huge compliment. Highly professional and warm, friendly, welcoming and reassuring. Totally respectful and the commitment to prevention and painless treatment is superbly carried out in practice on every visit. You are an example to the good ole fear-driven time-pressured NHS. A shining example, in fact. All combined with warmth and a feeling of being unique and supported. And it feels genuine. That’s because it is.

Carolyn Butt, South Brent, Devon

I’d happily recommend Jo to anyone! She is the most considerate and gentle dentist I’ve ever had.

Trudy Turrel, Dartington, Devon

I would not consider going anywhere else. It is an outstanding practice.

Tim Bowler, Broadhempston, Devon

I’ve always been treated with sensitivity and caring. It’s the best dental practice I’ve ever visited!

Sarah Paice, Totnes, Devon

Always a very friendly and professional service which I recommend to other people.

Colin Brooking, Paignton, Devon

Welcoming, friendly, professional service, nice atmosphere, lovely staff.

Larraine Sargerson, Torquay, Devon

I think that the whole experience is excellent and inspires confidence in the way [the practice] is managed from day to day.

I choose to come to Hygeia because of your reputation for caring excellence.

Excellent. I have full confidence in the procedures and attention to detail.  That is why I prefer to come to Hygeia.

Dr Barbara Allmark, Broadhempston, Devon

It feels like your living room, not a clinical dentist practice.


You are not being processed through an office.

You are a credit to your profession… we think you are a brilliant dentist!

You’re made comfortable – set at ease – constantly told what is being done.
