See What Our Clients Say

As well as being friendly, funny and welcoming, Gareth is a great dentist and he is the BEST at giving painless injections. He offers treatment choices, he is not just about the most expensive option and he takes genuine pride in work well done.


-A Wilson

I am delighted to endorse the service I have received from all the staff at Welcome Bay Dental Care. As a patient of the 1960’s school dental nurse scheme I had developed a fear of all dental work which led to years of neglect. After working through a treatment plan, Gareth built my confidence and I now maintain a regular dental appointment schedule for preventative maintenance rather than more severe remedial work. I have no hesitation in recommending Welcome Bay Dental Care.
