Here we would like to share with you some of the kind words left by our patients on our Facebook & Google pages.
Such a fantastic practice! Shane, the dentist, and the team are so friendly and welcoming. I've always been really nervous of needles and the dentist (passed out at my last dentist!) but I had a filling here with absolutely no problems at all. It's definitely the best dental experience I've had and... would 100% recommend.read more
As someone who’s always hated going to the dentist, it was somewhat daunting when I decided I wanted braces in my late 20s. However, I can truly say that Shane and the team at Village Dental have been excellent every step of the way, very professional and also very friendly - they really do put you... at ease and make going to the dentist a less horrifying prospect. Having had the braces taken off about 2 months ago, the results are brilliant, better than I really expected - I’ve spent that time getting used to smiling without deliberately hiding my teeth.The timescale given for treatment was pretty much bang on, and despite the crowding in my mouth, I only needed 1 tooth removed (another dentist who had given me a braces consultation said he’d take 4 out).I haven’t got a single negative word to say about the Village Dental Centre. I’m so happy with my smile now. Thank you guys so much.p.s. Sorry I took so long to write this review 🙂read more
By far the best dentist I have been too! I really don't like going to the dentist, however all staff make you feel at ease and talk you though everything and the dentist himself is SO lovely, I honestly can't sing him enough praise for making me feel so relaxed. I'm yet to have any treatment, the... prices have been fully explained, the process and I'm not so scared anymore due to this. 10/10 would recommend!!read more
Already a very nervous patient, I was even more nervous with Covid about but went to see Danny for hygienist appointment, felt really safe. Danny, as always took the utmost care & time to constantly reassure me . Thoroughly recommend this surgery , thank you to the whole team
I have an extremely bad phobia of registry, having had bad experiences in the past. I had very bad tooth ache and needed to have it sorted out quickly, of which I was very nervous. My biggest fear was the pain of having a tooth extracted, in my head I thought it would be hell and I would pass... out!When I arrived I was made to feel at ease, very quickly. The receptionists where very friendly and informative. The dentist that I saw was Shane, and was by far the best dentist I had visited. I was made so relax and confident in his abilities, that I chose to have the tooth extracted, amaziling I didn't feel to afraid as I was informed what was going on the whole time and best of all it did not hurt at all.If you have a dental phobia I deffently recommend visiting the village dental centre.read more
I would not hesitate to recommend Village Dental Centre! I’ve had such a positive experience over the year I have been having my treatment.I had been to several consultations enquiring about cosmetic braces in varying practices around Brighton, however this practice stood out- from the clean calm... (And stylish!) waiting room to the amount of time and attention to detail I received in my FREE consultation.Throughout my treatment Shane and Heidi have been amazing! Making me feel comfortable, answering all my questions and delivering a 5* service. I’m so pleased with the end product, I now have a new sense of confidence!! And I must admit I’m going to miss my monthly appointments!A huge thanks to Shane, Heidi and the rest of the team!!read more
A fabulous experience of customer service and professionalism. My straightening and whitening went without a hitch and I am very happy with the result, also the warmth and friendly service of an excellent dental practice.
Village Dental Centre is *by far* the most wonderful dental centre I've ever been to in all respects. I honestly cannot thank enough all the staff for being so caring, considerate, explanatory and helpful, I feel really really grateful.Every time I have visited Village Dental Centre I've had the... best of services amd it's thanks to this magnificent team that I am no longer intimidated of dental appointments!I would like to thank Dr Shane, Heidi, Mr Danny and every single person who has helped me, as well as Magda and Kassandra, both individually and as a team, I apologize for not remembering all the names and mentioning but a few, everyone deserves so much credit!It is such a positive, embracing and lovely environment, I'm always really satisfied with the feedback and advice I receive.Excellent, high quality professionalism combined with super amazing welcoming attitude.Thank you all so so much <3read more
I would like to share my experience with Village dental centre and thank Shane and Heidi for the amazing job they did for me. When I decided to choose a dentist to fix my dental problems my priority was to find professionals who are the best at what they do and also who can make me feel comfortable... and fully taken care of. Shane and Heidi made me feel more than just comfortable, they went the extra mile and gave me so much support throughout the whole process by answering all my questions, assuaging all of my concerns, even holding my hand during some of the more difficult procedures!After a year of extensive treatment I finally have my confidence back. This is thanks to Shane and Heidi - they are true professionals with the most caring attitude towards their clients.I would also like to thank Chloe and the whole Village Dental centre team for such a brilliant job! I cannot recommend the Village Dental Centre highly enough!read more

Hadn't been to the Dentist for 15 years plus.Found the Village Dental Centre based on Google reviews as my teeth were stopping me smiling as I was scared stiff of going.Met Shane Heidi and Chloe who since I met them have been nothing but AMAZING .There quality of service . Empathy and general... downright caring attitude made the whole experience brilliantI was sedated by an amazing guy called David. Had 3 plus hours of treatment and then scale polish and airflow treatment by the superb hygiene ladies ,I can honestly say for anyone who is scared of dentists . Shane and his brilliant team will make sure it goes well. Thankyou Guysread more
Absolutely the best dental practice i've had. Am an extremely nervous patient but the kindness and patience of all the staff cant be faulted. They are all amazing and are a great team. The procedures and costs are all carefully explained - and explained again if you are so anxious that you couldnt... take it in the first time! The dentists make you feel that there is no shame in having sedation. Their whole approach is to make you feel at ease and listened to. Thank you every one of you there.read more
"Amazing!" I chose village dental because the reviews were excellent and im pleased to be able to give my own 5 star review.I went in to have alot of work done to all my upper front teeth and nigel did an absolutly amazing job.Absolutly no pain whatsoever, and i couldnt be any more pleased with... the outcome.Nigel is a very friendly, helpful and all out proffesional and i couldnt be more thankfull for the amazing job he has done.read more
Really good people, from the receptionists to the dentists. I had clear braces and they included teeth whitening free of charge (would highly recommend this to everyone). Extremely professional and quick from initial consultation to having straight white teeth. 🙂
Fantastic dentist and thanks to them after 35 years I am no longer fearful of the dentist. All the staff are so friendly and you can have a laugh with them. They don't jab your teeth with metal utensils after you tell them your teeth are sensitive like all the other places I've been. Shane... explained everything he was going to do and he made a plan. Today I was feeling a little nervous and we was sat in the car outside and david the sedationist and Shane both came out with my pre sedation drink and as we was laughing it made me feel so much more at ease. Can honestly say ive never been to such a calming stress free dentist it's such a shame I didn't find them sooner. First class serviceread more
I have recently received treatment from Nigel and Lina.I was so embrassed by the state on my lower teeth and had resigned my self to the fact there was very little that could be done. After visiting Nigel and Lina they made me feel really comfortable they sorted a treatment plan for me and today... after just under 6 months I finally got my end results. I can’t believe how good my teeth now look. I can’t thank Nigel enough for his work I plan to go back in the new year for some work on my upper teeth but thankfully they are not as bad as my lowers.I can’t recommend Nigel and Lina enough they are friendly and kind and throughout all the work I had (which was a lot) I never felt any pain whatsoever great dentist and once again thank Nigel for making me feel confident enough to smile again.read more
Very happy with my treatment from this practice. I received fixed clear braces, followed by Invisaligns and then teeth whitening. I'm very pleased with the end result and now smile very proudly compared to before. Shane and Heidi were very patient and friendly throughout the process and always... listened to my concerns and tried to answer and help as best they could. They were great at explaining every process very clearly along the way during my visits. I will be recommending them to anyone wishing to receive a teeth straightening service. A big thank you to everyone involved!read more
I am utterly delighted with the results Shane has achieved for me. Having had a complex about my front teeth for so many years, that has been completely removed and I can now smile with confidence. Shane and Heidi have been amazing through the whole process and I would not hesitate to recommend... them. Thank You 🙂read more
After 30yrs I finally have a perfect smile and all credit goes to Shane and Heidi! Thanks for being super professional and super friendly turning my dental horror into an amazing experience.

Fantastic team +5⭐️highly recommend them to make your dream smile come true 😬🙌🏼read more
This was my first visit all I can say the receptionists dentist and assistant where fantastic,I’ve been to several dentist before being a senior citizen I cannot rate them high enough
Nigel & Lina...I feel so blessed to have found these two...I have never liked going to the dentist ever until now...I am so at ease sitting in the chair and having my teeth checked and worked on by Nigel as he is so so gentle and having lovely Lina around always gives me that feeling of ease and... reassurance that everything will be fine and it always is. Everything I am to have done is always explained to me fully beforehand... They are two truly caring, skilled people...Nigel & Lina you Rock!!!Thank you for making every visit for me pleasant, easy and pain free.xread more
Very positive first visit to the practice, friendly pleasant staff and a very helpful dentist. And a free first consulation to boot! Marvelous. I shall certainly return for my dentistry needs.
Shane and his team are first rate, very helpful and accommodating. Initially went for teeth straightening and whitening. Was so impressed they are now my regular dental surgery. Would thoroughly recommend.
Brilliant experience at Village Dental Centre. Exactly how a dental surgery should be. Nigel Kennedy and the whole team are the best. Highly recommend
Shane is the most caring and considerate Dentist I have ever seen. Putting me at ease, explaining everything before, during and after the treatment. Heidi is a star* dental nurse who is also very friendly, kind and welcoming. All the reception team are very polite and friendly too.I am almost a... little sad that my various treatment plans have finished (for now!) I have been going to the Village Dental Practice for just over a year and my 'going to the dentist fears' have completely gone. I would highly recommend anyone going to see them.read more
I have struggled with going to the dentist for many years, I’ve even been unable to phone to make an appointment but after going to Village Dental Centre for extensive treatment I am pain free for the first time in years!Everyone has been amazing, listened to my fears and last Friday I had a... tooth out in the chair without sedation, which has amazed people who know me.I urge anyone who has problems with visiting the dentist to give them a call and see what can be done.I know I will have problems with my teeth in the future but I now feel I will be able to deal with anything they throw at me.Thank you so much,read more
I have been really well looked after by Nigel and the team at Village Dental Centre, I recently had a lot of work done and it was pain-free with GREAT service.I would highly recommend this practice.
I never had any pain or discomfort at this Dentist. I didn't even have tooth pain hours later! Toothache is a distant memory now!Shane and Heidi always explained all that was happening too and was able to show me my teeth close up on film to explain how they were damaged!In fact I always looked... forward to visiting the Dentist! (Always a plus as they have great looking Receptionists too!)read more
After some very poor treatment at an NHS dentist I became very nervous of having any more dental treatment. So going to see Shane as a private patient has been amazing. I am very happy with the treatment and procedures I've had. Shane explains everything he does and constantly reassures you... throughout the appointment as does Heidi. All the team at the village dental practice are friendly and I would highly recommend them.read more
I have been going to the Village Dental Centre for nearly 20 years. When I first went I was to say the least a very nervous patient and hated going to the dentist and would only go as a last resort. When I started with Nigel I had lots of problems with my teeth but he sorted everything out and also... cured my phobia of going to the dentist to the point where I even had some cosmetic procedures which where amazing. I was a bit nervous when Shane started as I had been with Nigel for so long but as soon as I met him he put me at ease and has been fantastic. Shane and Nigel are not only amazing dentists but also really nice guys and the support teams are really good especially Heidi and Nicki. I recently moved to Bexhill but have stayed with Shane and Nigel as I know I will not find a better dentist in Bexhill. They are 100% honest and transparent about the work needed so if you are looking for a good dental practice then look no further.read more
I have not been to a dentist since last December and I have been having problems with my teeth since then, I decided to go and see Shane and I have to say I have never been made so welcome, the receptionists were wonderful and Hiedie his dental nurse was so caring, Shane took me through all the... dental treatment that I was going to have to go through, and I can honestly say he was a man of his word, I never felt no pain and felt very relaxed in his company. I have had to have all my teeth removed and new dentures put in I will always recommend him and his team to other people once again Shane thank you very muchread more
Shane is very welcoming and I felt absolutely no discomfort during my fillings with him. Very gentle, patient and explains everything. Would really recommend this dental centre if you are a bit nervous about the dentist as they are all really lovely.
I have nothing but praise for the amazing staff here. Being an INCREDIBLY nervous patient I have never been rushed during any appointment and their empathy is amazing. Danny and Shane and their trusted assistants have really been life changing. Can’t recommend this practice enough, particularly if... you have any fears about visiting the dentist.read more
I can sincerely recommend The Village Dental Care to anyone who wishes to listen. The staff and practitioners and courteous and professional. Patients are kept fully aware of the procedures which are planned. AND - there is no shock when the bill arrives:)
My treatment program was the CFast Braces with whitening at the end of the treatment. A little bit of background about me. I have Caribbean parents and on my dads side of the family, they all have small spaces between their teeth. Usually between the two front teeth. My father has small spaces... between all his upper set. I inherited the same. I’ve never been really bothered by the gaps, in fact I thought they were quite cute. However, entering my 40s, I noticed the gaps were getting wider and the teeth were no longer straight.I became more aware of my teeth when meeting new people, I felt their eyes wonder momentarily to my mouth before quickly reverting back to eye contact. Inevitably, my confidence was slowly being affected. I suddenly realised that when I was socialising I would cover my mouth when I smiled or laugh. This was going on for a few years as the gaps became wider.I couldn’t take being embarrassed by my teeth anymore. I considered going overseas to Hungary or Thailand to get the treatment done but I realised the treatment required regular visits to the orthodontist to make adjustments. So although the cost of treatment was extremely cheap, but the inconvenience and risk was too great.I don’t know why I didn’t think about my dentist Shane doing the treatment. I just thought of him as dentist and no pain fillings. I didn’t think of him as an orthodontist. At my regular dental check up, I mentioned my concerns about my train tunnel gaps. Shane said he could do the treatment and created a treatment plan for me. Yes, my eyes watered when I saw the cost, but I’m a person who complains about the cost of everything medical.I went home and thought about it and what the treatment actually meant to me. My confidence was broken, I didn’t like meeting new people because I felt a prejudgment of me was made. I didn’t like talking in public and I felt ugly. Vanity always wins. Americans always laugh at British people because of the state of our teeth. And as I sat watching tv that evening, I saw so many British actors with teeth that were dreadful. I went to work and I saw terrible shaped teeth everywhere. But I saw no one with gaps like mine. I decided to get the treatment. My treatment took longer than expected because my gaps were extensive and my teeth were bloody stubborn. Throughout the treatment both Shane and Heidi treated me with respect, professionally and with warmth. I’m sure they must have wondered several times when are my teeth going to move. But then suddenly, my teeth started to move and shift. January this year, my braces came off and I burst into tears. I had normal looking teeth. I asked to have a little gap left because it is a family trait. I now have beautiful natural looking straight teeth. No more covering my mouth with embarrassment. It’s now bold bright colour lipsticks that draw the eyes to my beautiful teeth. I haven’t stopped grinning since January. I’m now developing laughter lines. I wonder if Shane can treat those!!😁. I thoroughly recommend this CFast treanent from the Village Dental Centre. They listen to you and provide the treatment that is right for you. I can now approach my 50s with a great big confident smile.read more
We have four generations of our family that are patients and from the oldest (88) to the youngest (2.5) we have been looked after with expert care. One child has special needs and the practice understanding and kindness is wonderful. Both Shane and Nigel have their patients welfare and care at the... heart of the expertise.read more
Just been for my routine hygienist appointment and my dental check-up with Nigel. He's been our dentist for 30 years. Always feel in good hands. Never fearful of any treatment - except possibly once a wisdom tooth extraction, but even that wasn't too traumatic.
I truly am very nervous of the Dentist, but having been recommended by friends to try Village dental centre, I now find going to the Dentist is not a problem. I have had crowns, replacement fillings etc. I am so pleased with the results I would definitely recommend Shane & the team to everyone... looking for great dentistry & it truly is pain free.read more
Always friendly and helpful staff on reception. Waiting room is relaxing and other patients often pass the time of day. There is a drinking water machine easily accessible. My dentist is Shane and he is always willing to spend time explaining procedures and showing pictures of tooth damage so I... fully understand why procedures are recommended. His nurse is also very kind and encouraging. I have had extractions and fillings and have felt no pain apart from the numbing injection prior to treatment and that's to be expected. From being a reluctant patient who only visited the surgery when something was wrong and then needing something to get me in the door of a dentist's surgery I am now confident and back to 6 monthly checkups. Expensive but worth it to know how encouraging, knowledgeable and friendly every one is. Feel really safe in their hands.read more
had my free consultation yesterday with Nigel...he was very understanding and took his time to explain various treatments for my dental problems...he instilled confidence in me that I have never felt with any other dentist. I will be moving my family to this practice.feeling relieved and very... grateful.read more
Everything about this dental centre is absolutely top notch. Really nice welcoming staff and excellent customer care by all concerned. A great experience
I attended the Village Dental Centre yesterday for a hygienist appointment. Everything about my visit was first class and I would highly recommend this dental centre.I’m usually quite nervous at the dentist, but was immediately put at ease by the friendly staff at reception, especially the... practice manager, who was absolutely wonderful.The hygienist himself was amazing and very gentle with the cleaning but at the same time did a really great job. He was very reassuring. I felt relaxed and comfortable throughout.I would recommend this dental centre to anybody!read more
After deciding I would get teeth realignment, a friend who had braces fitted by Nigel at Village Dental gave a high recommendation. After seeing Nigel for a few years now, I'm very happy with the service I've been provided. You're always greeted by a friendly face and the work Nigel has done has... been amazing. Getting the braces fitted and regularly examined and adjusted by Nigel was a much more pleasant experience than I expected and my only regret is that I didn't do it sooner. I'm ecstatic with the results and would recommend anyone thinking about teeth realignment to go here. I would also recommend their hygienist service.read more
What a relief a dentist who listened and understood my phodia, I've not been to a dentist for over 15years until I plucked up the courage to visit Village Dental & met Shane who was fantastic I was very nervous and he put me at ease & was so understanding of my predicament.I had some work done... under sedation by Shane and their was no pain, no discomfort and I came out with healthy, super clean teeth :-)If you do have a phobia or just want to find a great dentist go to Village Dental you will not be disappointed.Thanks to Shane and Heidi & everyone at Village Dental.All the best,Paul Turnockread more
Very good service, from initial greeting to leaving. Comfortable waiting environment, friendly support personnel and excellent dental surgeons and hygienists.
Amazing!!!!This feedback is a message to anyone who suffers acute or chronic anxiety visiting the dentist.After some seriously horrendous experiences as a child in the dentist’s chair, I was desperately looking for a dental practice that would not only be able to offer sedation and pain free... dentistry but we’re able to show care and empathy toward someone who had seriously grave fears going to the dentist.The village dental centre are truly amazing. From reception to consultation, their professional and gentle empathic approach are second to none.I have now had four sedation treatments involving some rather unpleasant procedures.I did NOT feel a thing. The sedation in essence knocks you out. I could not feel or hear a thing!No sooner have you been given the sedative, your awake again and everything is over.Truly incredible stuff!Shane (my dentist) is a delight and David (sedation) is truly caring and sensitive.Four treatments here is testament to how good Village Dental Centre is.I now visit Shane with no fears or trepidation and would without question thoroughly recommend Shane and his team toANYONE who has a chronic fear of dentists.Thank you to a wonderful team.Richardread more
As always I was treated well both by reception, Kat hygienist, and Nigel, who has been my dentist for probably over 40 years!! I do not like having anything done to my teeth, but as Nigel knows my mouth so well, it is never a problem. I have no problem with always recommending The Village Dental... Centre to friends and family.
Thank you everyone!read more
I have been a patient at this practice since I was a young child. Everyone is very friendly and offer honest and excellent advice. I have always felt at ease when visiting. All the staff do a fantastic job and I would recommend them to anyone who is a bit worried about visits to the dentist. No... pain and they make you feel relaxed.read more
Really friendly, was put at ease from the start, Extremely knowledgeable and happy to work with the patient towards a suitable treatment plan, very relaxed.
Thank goodness I found Shane a few years ago. I am probably in the top 10% of extremely nervous and frightened patients. Shane even met me in the café next door the first time. Now I can actually go into his room and sit in the chair! He is kind and very patient and offers the best sedation. I know... I'll probably never be able to have treatment without sedation but he has built up a trust in me that I would go to no other dentist, even though I have travelled for over an hour and a half to get there. Thank you Shane and Heidiread more
I have been seeing Nigel for the past 10 years & can’t rate him highly enough.Other than routine appointments, most of the work I’ve had done has been cosmetic in preparation for my wedding.Nigel & the team have helped me every step of the way to achieve the perfect, pain free, white smile.A... huge thank you to all the team!read more
I've been seeing Shane for a few years now. In the past I was terrified of visiting the dentist yet Shane's relaxing, re-assuring manner really puts me at ease. If you're scared, try this place. Best dentist I've ever used.Danny, their new hygienist is excellent - very gentle and... professional.Service is first class with regular reminders by e-mail and text and all the support staff (receptionists/assistants) are so friendly.read more
I have been a patient at Village Dental Surgery for a little over a year now and have always received first class treatment and attention from caring and friendly staff.My last appointment was fairly complex due to the awkward location of a required filling, however the procedure was quickly and... easily accomplished by Shane who certainly lived up to his alias "No Pain Shane"!I would highly recommend this practice.read more
no pain at all from the dentist.prices explained clearly and very happy with service.Receptionists also very welcoming which from the start made me comfortable.
I have been going to this practice for almost 4 years now. I had only good experiences. I found everyone very friendly and professional.I love the reminder notifications. I got a consultation for retainers, without a hard sell. I decided not to do it but kept coming back since for hygene treatment... when I had a wisdom tooth playing up and some nerve problem. I had a horrible treatment as an NHS patient so since then I decided to take a dental plan out through my company so I can't really comment on the prices but I am certainly very happy with the treatments I had so far. I have less fear now than before to go to the dentist.read more
My experience with the practice falls under three categories:- Checkup: my teeth are generally in good shape but of the two small issues that I have had, they were both addressed on the day and haven't re-occured- Hygenist: completely thorough (always squeaky clean afterwards)- Special : my... partner and I have undergone one of the tooth whitening therapies; very affordable (and we are not well-off); her teeth came out five shades whiter and mine improved by four shadesI literally can't think of a thing wrong with this service. Five stars.read more
I will never go anywhere else. I have to come from Eastbourne but it is so worth it. Gone are the stressful days and sleepless nights leading up to an appointment, they said painfree and it was totalypain free, l had drilling, old fillings out, white ones in, extensive cleaning on extremely... sensitive teeth and gums, hours and hours of work, a bridge and crowns, plus whitening.Had someone told me l would happily go through all that l would have said "No Way Never" l highly recommend this practice. I thank you Shane & Heidi and all the team, (l got to listen to my favourite radio station too)and of course their technical team in Hove, they all work together for the very best results.It is the best money l have ever spent l had lost my smile l now am me again thank you for being kind & caring see you soon xread more
I could not recommend this practice anymore if I tried. Amazing service from everyone who works there!
I was absolutely petrified of the dentist and refused to go before I knew about this place and my fear has completely vanished and I actually look forward to it!
I've got everyone... going and every person I speak to says the same thing!read more
A totally stress free experience with a fantastic result in transforming my appearance ,from one of the friendliest teams you are ever likely to meet ,Many thanks Shane for all your skill and effort.A very happy Kevin!
After years of ongoing dental failures, I finally found the Dentist who I felt comfortable with. I have always wanted to have the perfect smile, and lacked confidence to get the work done. All questions spring to mind.The...What if it goes wrong? Should I take a chance and have it done? But when I... first walked into the Village Dental Surgery I knew I had found the right place to proceed with my treatment.The whole team were so very friendly and helpful. When I met Shane and Heidi I knew I could trust them from the onset. I was reassured that they could do the treatment over a period of 3 to 6 months. I had no doubt at all in my mind about letting Shane do the work. I had several trips back and forth. My biggest fear factor is always the needles and the pain. But I had a pain free experience throughout. I am so overly happy with the work done. I now have my perfect smile. Thank you all for everything.read more
I cannot over emphasise the difference that Shane, Heidi and the team at Village Dental Centre have made to my life. After a series of poor experiences as a child I had developed a high anxiety about visiting the dentist and as a result had several loose and stained teeth in adulthood. I was very... self conscious about my teeth and rarely smiled in photographs - on those rare occasions that i did I always ensured I kept my mouth closed. I avoided eating certain foods because I was worried about about my teeth and gums - I don't think a day went past when I was not thinking about how bad my teeth had become . To say that it had become the focal point of my like was an understatement.Eventually I plucked up the courage to book an appointment at the Village Dental Centre - all I can say is that i wish I had met Shane and the team earlier. Everyone was fantastic - really understanding, non judgmental, friendly and supportive. Although I underwent some quite extensive treatment, I did not experience any pain or discomfort. They definitely are the home of pain free dentistry!And the result? I am no longer self conscious about my teeth, I have the confidence to smile again in photographs, I can eat the food I enjoy and I no longer spend hours a day anxious about my appearance. But more importantly, my anxiety about visiting the dentist has gone, thanks to the professionalism and support given by everyone at the practice.If you have anxiety or concerns about visiting the dentist, please give Shane and the team a call. It's never too late to make a huge difference to your confidence and your life!read more
I am a Dentist at the Village Dental Centre and as a practice we have always strived to provide 'pain free dental care ' . When I broke my tooth at the weekend it was my chance to be subjected /treated to some remedial dentistry !! Shane numbed me ....felt nil/nothing/nada , had filling done... felt nothing at all ! It was a tooth that showed so it required some artistic building up and a good eye for detail ...especially as my wife would inspect it when I got home . She said which one did he do , wasn't it your left you broke a tooth on ? It was the right but Shane did such a perfect cosmetic job it was as good as new , in fact better . Of course you could say I am biased BUT this is in fact an honest account of top dental care provided totally painlessly .read more
Excellent friendly service . They always go out of there way to make you feel more relaxed . I have a lot of fear and anxiety around many aspects of dental work but Shane and his team have helped me so much . They are so supportive and understanding .
I was (still am a bit) a very nervous patient and
I used to sit in reception dreading what's going to happen to me with white knuckles and panicking but now I'm quite at ease.
I hadn't been to any DENTIST for 10 years or so because of my fear of Dentists and now going here I've kept every... appointment and getting major work done.
I've had several sedations and it's costing me a fortune but I don't mind.
Thank you Shane and Heidi. Wish I'd found you years ago.

I had not been to a regular dentist for 20 years, due to pregnancy and fear, although I did attend a couple of emergency dental appointments for teeth to be removed 😕However, I was in a car accident 10 years ago which damaged more teeth and roots yet, I still could not bring myself to... contact a dentist.After reading reviews on Village dental in Brighton, I plucked up the courage to attend an appointment.I was seen by Shane and after examination he explained all the work that needed to be done.I proceeded with the work which took 8 months all together.Shane is a fantastic dentist with so much understanding for people with fear and I found him to be very patient too, his dental nurses were great and very reassuring and the reception team were great too.I certainly recommend having any dental work done here.read more
I have been a patient at this practice and I am also proud to say I have worked here in the past. Massively high standards. Excellent patient bedside manner and always honest and insightful advise. One of the very best practices on the south coast.
As a nervous patient I eventually choose Village Dental because they guaranteed Pain free dentistry. I was shaking and felt physically sick when I walked into my 1st appointment.After 5 visits and pain free procedures I no longer have that feeling. I had sedation for my 1st procedure as I was so... nervous. The last procedure was just injections.The team are fantastic, welcoming and friendly. Shane has a very calming way about him. He talks you through what he is going to do step by step putting you we ease.Thank you guys, I love my new teeth and I feel totally confident about laughing and smiling again.Wendyread more
Good to see my dentist Shane, his assistant Heidi and Helen my hygienist this morning and see the refurbishment under way. Thank you for looking after my teeth. I try to go regularly for check ups... �

I hated my teeth before I went to the Village Dental Centre in Brighton. I hated photographs because I didn't want to show my teeth and covering my mouth became a habit. Shane and Heidi have completely turned my life around by giving me the teeth that I've always dreamed of.I should have had... braces fitted when I was a teenager but I had a complete phobia of the dentist and ended up not going at all for 7 years. I eventually realised that I couldn't carry on like that and I should do something about it, so I went to the Village Dental Centre last year and met Shane and Heidi who talked me through my options. We decided together that fitted braces were the best option for me. At the beginning of the process I was terrified because of previous experience at the dentist however within minutes Shane and Heidi made me feel really calm. I had my braces on for a year (I was expecting to need them for at least 2 years) and the entire treatment from start to finish was totally pain free. I wasn't sure that this could be possible until I experienced it myself!Everyone who works here is so polite and welcoming and everything is perfectly organised. As a patient you're never left not knowing what is going on with your treatment/appointments.My confidence has grown a massive amount since I even had the braces fitted and I love my new perfect teeth. I would recommend the Village Dental Centre to anyone and everyone, you'd be mad to go anywhere else! I definitely won't be going to another dentist ever again! I can't thank them enough.read more
I only wish I found this place sooner!! I've always hated going to the dentist, just the thought of it and sitting in the waiting room would raise my pulse and unsettle me. Now I think I could walk in there again felling completely relaxed. I had 4 fillings a crown and a wisdom tooth extraction... which I was dreading the most and so I opted for iv sedation. I was in the room for 2 hours could swear it was only 10mins! Nigel and his team are very professional, friendly and understanding. I would with out a doubt recommend this place to anyone!
Thanks again guys job well done!read more
I have been terrified of going to the dentist ever since I was a child and had a lot of painful and frightening experiences with uncaring dentists. This translated in to only going to the dentists when I absolutely had to as an adult and I knew I had to get over my fear or end up with a mouth full... of rotting teeth. After doing some research I found the Village Dental Centre and can honestly say I have never been so relaxed ( maybe not quite the right word! ) in a dentists chair. Everyone is very friendly and caring and go out of their way to make sure that you are comfortable with what is happening. I have had a lot of work done as a result of my negligence but it is worth every penny and I will make sure now that I keep it up.read more
