We are proud to have obtained so many positive reviews from patients on Google. All our reviews are displayed below to give you a better indication of how real patients view their dental experience at Clifton.
There are not many people of whom you could say: "This man/woman changed my life." As I think back to the person I was and compare her to the person I now am, it is clear that Dr. Gerrard has changed my life. And, thankfully, very much for the better.I used to be terribly self-conscious about my teeth and was ashamed to smile. My teeth were discoloured and jumbled. My gum was uneven and looked unhealthy, other teeth varied wildly in colour and shape. My smile was horrible even though I had spent a lot of time in the chairs of other dentists. Every day when I looked in the mirror I felt dreadful.Dr Gerrard took nearly a year to fix all my teeth and, now that the work is complete, all my anxieties and self-doubt have disappeared along with the ugly jumble.If all that Dr. Gerrard did was fix the teeth,I wouldn't have bothered to write this review. To be sure, he is a careful and capable craftsman, proficient with the tools of his profession and justly proud of his artisanal handwork. But Dr. Gerrard is far, far more than a craftsman. He is an artist! My overriding concern was that I should not end up with an 'American smile', too perfectly regular with a white that is too bright and shiny. In my opinion, it looks phony. To be human is to be a tad short of perfection. And that is where Dr. Gerrard's eye and aesthetic judgment came into play. He shaped each tooth so that it was individually just a mite different from its neighbors. The teeth are regular, very regular but not too regular. They look genuine, authentic and human, not at all the product of artifice. Similarly their color is white but not too white, shiny and bright. They look like the teeth of a woman of my age who has maintained her teeth scrupulously and with diligence. They don't look like I went to a dentist to get my smile fixed. And that is why I can say in full appreciation of Dr Gerrard's professionalism: he is far more than a merely competent dentist; he is a true virtuoso.I cannot finish my review without mention of the support staff at the clinic. Each and every one was efficient, professional and attended me with unfailing courtesy and civility not to mention a ready smile. To them, one and all, a big thank you.read more
Wow! A truly lovely team of patient centred care. Always welcomed by the happy and lovely Julie & Siobhan. Rory is my dentist and would always take the time to explain and go over my treatment. Warm and friendly dental nurses every time which makes the whole experience relaxed... this is the way dental care should be! ~ Highly Recommend and a massive thank you to everyone in the team at Clifton Dental Studio. I finally have my perfect smile!read more
I’ve been visiting Clifton Dental Studio for over 10 years now and cannot recommend their services enough. From amazing emergency care, to ongoing aftercare and check ups - all the staff are friendly faces that help make you smile that little bit more confidently!I originally went to Clifton Dental Studio in need of an implant for my front tooth - after being messed around by another dentist I had developed an infection in my jaw and ended up needing a bone graft alongside the implant. All my options were explained clearly and I felt well informed on the progress I could expect to see. I ended up opting for sedation for one of the larger operations which made the experience much smoother sailing and would recommend for anyone on the nervous side because I don’t remember a thing!The final result was a perfect match in terms of colour and size which has made such a difference to my confidence.I’ve since moved away from the area but still visit the clinic for regular hygiene appointments and check ups as I trust Neil and the team more than any other dentist. If I could give move than 5 stars I would!read more
Best dentist studio in Bristol! I phoned up on Monday morning because of a swollen gum and mild pain. Julie the receptionist was super helpful and I felt like she really listened to my problem and escalated it the clinician team. She phoned me back within an hour and got me booked in for an emergency appointment the following morning as from my symptoms they were worried it might have been something quite serious, which turned out to be.Rory the dentist quickly diagnosed the problem and offered me a solution on the same day! I was very scared but he made me feel at ease and answered all the questions that I had which really helped in accepting the treatment. In every step both him and nurse Jessica made me feel at ease and safe. I really felt taken care of from beginning to end. They delivered on their promise of pain free dental treatment and saved me from what could have easily evolved into a very nasty systemic infection. I felt so grateful for their help. I highly recommend this fantastic studio, they’ve got a great team who delivers great results!read more

Thank you very much, great team! I have been registered at the Clifton Dental Studio for a while now. The care I receive at this practice can only be described as outstanding, the world class. I recently completed a multi-stage treatment for the multiple implants, and I cannot be happier with the results, from the point of view of both functionality and aesthetics. At all stages of my treatment, I observed, and experienced, the unparalleled professionalism of the whole team. The receptionists, nurses, hygienists, and dentists – all deserve only the highest praise. As for the work of Dr Neil Gerrard, I am grateful every time that after the thorough research, I have chosen his practice. The treatment I required was complex due to the complexity of my problems, and frankly speaking, I cannot imagine a better care or a better outcome. My smile is restored, and even my quality of life is significantly improved as a result. I would happily recommend Dr Neil Gerrard’s practice.read more

Have had nothing but excellent service since coming to Clifton Dental Studio. From having my braces fitted to my hygienist appointments. Everything has been pain free and the customer care is second to none! So glad I found this place.
After damaging my front tooth many years ago (in my early twenties) I had it crowned at an NHS dentist. This dental work lasted some time until an infection in the jaw bone required an apicoectomy. This procedure resolved the problem and saved the crown. I had this procedure done a couple of times over the years until the infection refused to clear. I was faced with yet another procedure to try and save the tooth but as the crown's quality was deteriorating and the surrounding teeth were no longer matching the original work, I decided to do some research and found Dr Gerrard at Clifton Dental Studio. Following an in-depth review and history I was advised to have the tooth removed and consider an implant, advice which I was confident with and followed. The tooth was removed and I was given a temporary denture to use while the infection was clearing and the gum was healing. I received bone graft surgery to enable an effective and secure implant site – whilst this treatment was unpleasant, I didn't suffer any pain or discomfort (apart from the expected recovery process). The procedure was explained and my questions were answered fully, instilling me with confidence at the quality of care I was receiving. From extraction to the final implant, the treatment lasted approximately 15 months. Throughout the whole time and all the various recovery stages, the quality of treatment and care I received was exemplary, I cannot fault it. I even turned up on a number of occasions, fearful during some of the recovering stages and I was instantly seen to and reassured. In my view, the results are outstanding – my confidence in my smile has been restored. I have looked back at old photos and cannot believe I didn't look to do this sooner. I have since had further treatment on other teeth - treatment which I would have left had I not found a dentist that I had such confidence with. I would not hesitate to recommend Dr Gerrard and his team at Clifton Dental Studioread more

I have been putting off going to the dentist for years because I have been so petrified! I saw Charlotte and she was absolutely brilliant and so patient with me. It really was pain free with how patient and kind she was - this has totally transformed the way I view dentists! Thank you Clifton Dental!read more
The whole team are wonderful: friendly and very helpful. I originally came for a new denture, which is brilliant and makes me smile. I now return regularly to see Heather who must be the kindest hygienist in the world.
I am positively petrified of dentists and have a VERY low pain threshold! the thought of having a tooth removed filled me with fear. A couple of years ago I had a tooth removed under sedation my fear was that great!Dr Gerrard/Rory at Clifton Dental fitted my brace a few months ago and I was made aware at that stage two teeth would need to be removed in time to get the desired result. I dreaded this appointment and when the day came I nearly cancelled I was so nervous.Rory and the girls were AMAZING. They were all so kind and patient, Laura even held my hand! Rory was super gentle, didn't rush and explained everything.When Clifton Dental promise 'pain free' they really DO mean it! I didn't think it was possible but I really didn't feel a thing.I have another 19 months under the care of Rory & the Clifton Dental team, I can honestly say I look forward to my appointments.Incredibly professional, very caring and always a joy to visit.read more
This is a very long overdue review for the treatment I received at Clifton Dental Studio. A few months ago I finished the treatment of having braces fitted to re-align my teeth . Initially I was a little unsure as to whether it was worth the money and effort as my teeth weren't that bad, but after speaking to the team and then feeling confident to go ahead with the treatment, I can easily say it was the best decision I've made for a long time! The results are amazing and I can now smile with my mouth open and actually had to re-learn how to smile!As for the service I received from the team at Clifton Dental Studio it was second to none. From the minute I walked in there, to the end of my treatment two and half years later everyone was AMAZING. The team are highly professional, very friendly and always make the experience as relaxed and comfortable as it could be at any stage of the process. I cannot recommend Clifton Dental Studio enough and my only negative is that since finishing my treatment I don't get to see the team often enough! Neil you have an amazing team that are a true credit to your practice. Thanks guys and see you all again soon. Nick xread more
I was recommended Clifton Dental Studio by my housemate and I can see why. The service they provide is second to none! From friendly greetings at reception, to carefully thought out treatment and clear, personalised advice. The whole team are fantastic. Particular thanks to Charlotte for taking a clear attentiveness to my own teeth and providing such excellent service!Would highly recommend.read more
Hello, I had a sideways bottom front tooth, so my lower teeth were very crowded. I never had braces as a youngster but decided to get something done in my late 20s. I was apprehensive about it but received an excellent service from Clifton Dental Studio and can't believe how well the treatment works. The people there are always professional and friendly. Straight teeth are so much easier to care for as you get older, and now that I'm a mum and time is ever more precious, its great that I never worry about being easily able to keep my teeth clean!read more
From start to finish the team were honest about my options, welcoming every time i stepped through the door and courteous making sure i was comfortable. Having had braces for 2 and a half years as a teenager, i wasnt't excited by the idea of having them again as an adult. But Rory was able to give me realistic timelines, amazing advice on how to get the most out of my braces and work with me in order to get the results i wanted. I honestly wouldnt go anywhere else now, braces, check ups or otherwise.Thank you team 🙂read more
I visited Clifton Dental Studio to enquire about having a brace to straighten my teeth which were something that I was very self conscious about. The practice was highly recommended by a few friends so I thought I would give it a try. From the moment I walked in I felt so welcome and comfortable, the reception staff are brilliant. After looking over the options that would work well for me I decided to go ahead with the treatment. This wouldn’t have been possible without using the studios finance options which the process was extremely easy and straightforward. I started my treatment with Rory who has always made me feel at ease and comfortable. The treatment has been pain free and I have been well looked after. I am due to have my brace off next week and already I am overwhelmed with the result. As I have a big event Rory and the team have gone above and beyond to try and make it possible for me to have the brace off in time, even by making room in the diary to make my whitening trays to ensure I can have a few whitening sessions also. The customer service has been amazing. Thank you so much Clifton Dental Studio, I have already recommended friends and family to the practise. Kateread more
I have used Clifton Dental Studio for four years now, and have always found the service to be very professional and efficient. The staff are friendly and caring and I am very pleased with the dental treatment I have received.
"Neil and all of his team are totally amazing. I've been so very unhappy with my teeth for many years & my smile went. My treatment is getting closer to the end now and I've found my smile again. Thank you all!"
Great practice. I went to Clifton dental studio before getting married to get the smile I always wanted for my wedding pictures Now, three years later I am still just as happy with the results. Also fantastic whitening and the end of my treatment. I can’t recommend enough.

I've been having treatment at the Clifton Dental Studio for almost 2 years, and at every visit I am treated with patience, kindness and respect. I am a particularly anxious patient, so much so, that prior to coming for treatment here, I had purposefully not booked a dental appointment in almost 2 years. Joining the Clifton Dental Studio has helped me get my dental health and hygiene back on track, and has eased my anxieties around going to the dentist. My regular appointment is with Sam who is always so friendly, funny and approachable, along with a variety of super friendly dental nurses. They are always patient and considerate of my individual needs and check in on me regularly throughout the appointment to see if i'm okay or need a break. I have to admit there's been tears in the appointments, but only due to me being scared! Sam and the Team are very empathetic and never make me feel embarrassed or silly. I am never rushed or made to feel like I can't stop when needed. As a nervous patient this is so important to me. Thank you to everyone at Clifton Dental Studio for your support and helping me face my fears and to be healthy in a pain-free way!read more
I am writing this on behalf of my cousin June who has only recently started treatment at the clinic. June is in her 80s and suffers from mental health problems. She has been treated with such kindness and professionalism from all the staff.

I came to this dentist so anxious at the start of 2016. Each member of the team took the time to make me feel so comfortable and relaxed on my arrrival and throughout my teeth journey. I received clear braces as my teeth were in really bad shape! My orthodontist Alex made me feel so welcome every visit, is informative, always made me laugh whilst remaining professional and most importantly he has done an absolutely outstanding job on my teeth. They are everything I wanted and more! I wouldn’t want to see any other dentist. I can’t thank Clifton Dental Studio enough for their hard work and constantly friendly, welcoming atmosphere which is so rare for a dentist. Thanks again guys!read more
I had a brace with Clifton Dental Studios and I found the whole experience to be really friendly, pain free and professional. I am really happy with the result too. Would definitely recommend.
The Clifton Dental Studio has a great team of professional staff, always friendly and there to help, having been a client for about 6 years now I am very happy with the service I continue to receive, my teeth have never been better! Everyone I recommend to this practice always has a good thing to say after their visit. My wife has always been frightened of the dentist having had some terrible experiences as a child, but since joining the Clifton Dental Studios she has been helped through her fear in a kind and considerate way, and now does not worry about her appointments like she used too!read more

Probably the best dental experience I’ve ever had. As soon as you enter you’re greeted and the staff are always happy to answer any questions, their always super smiley. I was also late for my last appointment by 20 minutes and was still accommodated, which a rate highly considering how busy everyone is. So thanks guys. I had my teeth cleaned which yes is more expensive than elsewhere but they’ve never felt better and it’s worth every single penny!! Samatha (hygienist) is a real credit to the team and so knowledgeable, I can’t fault it and I look forward to coming back for my braces and more cleaning!Also special mention to my smile Advisor Tamsin! So warm and lovely, and has actually given me the confidence to go for braces rather than veneers so putting me before the money.Thanks team xoxoread more
I couldn't thank Clifton Dental Studio enough for how much they have helped me with my Sever dental anxiety and anesthetic allergy complications over the past year! If you had told me a year ago, I would willingly be walking into the dentist on my own to have work done on my teeth, I wouldn't have believed you. Here I am today with almost all the work completed and have signed up to there smile care program as well! Neil and the team are fantastic and so welcoming! Definitely Pain Free Dentistry!read more
I visited Clifton dental studio back in July 2018 and it was a perfect experience. The treatment I received was amazing, pain free and 100% worth every penny. All the staff were fantastic and very friendly, HIGHLY recommend. Thank you 🙂
Exceptional treatment and excellent staff with great attention to detail. Special thanks to Sam, Siobhan, Julie, Leanna, Ashley, Charlotte and Ezra. Would recommend Clifton dental studio and staff to anyone!
I am a fairly new patient at the Clifton Dental Studio. From my first consultation I found them all very pleasant and helpful. They really looked after me and made me feel very welcome.. I had an NHS dentist prior who basically made me feel unhappy almost as if they didn't care a bit. My bottom teeth in particular had bad plaque and tartar from build up of not looking after them as well as I should have been. I have just completed today my second hygiene appointment with Heather assisted by Ashleigh and I felt very comfortable with them. I am looking forward to my next appointment in the new year. My teeth look really great so far and i am very pleased. I highly recommend this dentist. Worth every penny.read more
The most amazing dentist I've ever visited, very friendly service and make you feel extremely comfortable. I was very anxious before coming here and now I love the dentist!
So, so nervous I was and haven’t been for years. Had to go as in so much pain. These guys are absolutely second to none. Dr Gerrard is amazing and really makes you feel confident and comfortable throughout the whole experience and explains everything including the reasons ‘why’ which really helps. The whole set up is awesome from the welcome from all the staff and the constant reassurance and beautiful surroundings. If your nervous or not or if you just want top quality treatment and help then come see these guys. They are just brilliant.read more
