Patient Testimonials


I was and still am very impressed by the level of professionalism and the courteous service I received by Barry and his team.

After many months and much deliberation I decided to go ahead and have implants to retain my dentures. That done then I embarked on the arduous task of actually finding someone to carry out this procedure. Ashton Dental Practice - what a stroke of luck!

We Care For Your Smile

Thank you to Barry for providing that “we care for your smile” is true.

Thank you for restoring my smile over a difficult period for me. Thank you also to your team, for friendly professional attention.

To Mr Patel

I should like to say how pleased I am with my recent implant surgery. I was treated in a very professional manner and everything was explained to me in detail at every stage of the procedure.

I would certainly have the work done again, and would have no hesitation in recommending Mr Patel to anyone thinking of implant surgery.

Oral Cancer Screening

I have been a patient of Barry’s for over twenty years and have always had excellent treatment from him and all his staff.

During a recent course of treatment he told me that a lump on my forehead was a ‘rodent ulcer’, a form of skin cancer. He referred me to a specialist who confirmed his diagnosis and it has now been treated.


Thanks for all of your help and assistance over the last two years.

During a course of Invisalign treatment extending over two years, I have been fortunate to have been treated by Dr Waris Patel. My particular case was somewhat complex, pushing up against the limits of what could be achieved without surgery


I would like to thank you for the work you have done on my teeth and the advice that you gave me about considering veneer work.

After having the veneer work done I am very pleased with the result and this has made me more confident and comfortable with the way I look and feel. I have had numerous compliments about how my teeth look and I have recommended you to everyone who has commented and passed on your details.


Due to my embarrassment about my teeth I had walked past Ashton Dental Practice for several years but couldn't pluck up the courage to go in. I eventually sent an email and when the receptionist called me she was very reassuring, calm and professional. By the end I had booked in for a consultation.

I was very nervous about meeting my dentist, Mr Waris Patel, but he made me feel at ease and fully explained everything - by the end of the consultation I had agreed to try some treatments without sedation. Small treatments were done without sedation and my confidence and ability to relax improved. More extensive treatment was done under sedation. Thank you for giving me back my smile!


From the very start I was put at ease by Waris' expertise and his focus was always ensuring the best outcome for myself.

At every stage Waris & I discussed my case in detail and Waris often consulted with Invisalign to ensure my bite and alignment were the best they could possible be. I was very impressed with his attention to detail and would highly recommend him as an Invisalign provider. I am really please with the outcome.

Plasma Rich Growth Factor (PRGF)

I would not hesitate to recommend this excellent treatment given to me during the extraction of my tooth by Waris Patel & have already done so to family & friends.

At my previous dentist following extractions I suffered painfully with dry sockets & infections afterwards. This time with PRGF I didn't need any pain relief and everything healed quickly.
Thank you. AS - March 2017

Sleep Apnoea

I cannot thank Barry enough as without his help my daughter would still be struggling in her day-to-day life!

Straight away Barry recognised that my daughter was suffering with sleep apnoea as well as enlarged tonsils & adenoids.
She was referred to the hospital where they agrees and that she needed an operation. Since the operation my daughter has no problems sleeping, can eat her food and play around like any other child. VD (March 2017)

His attention to detail went beyond all my expectations!

Professional & courteous throughout my treatment, I have nothing but respect for Dr Waris Patel.

His confidence & ability inspired me to expect the best, he did not disappoint me.
Praise for him, all the dental nurses involved in my treatment & not forgetting the welcoming receptionists of Ashton Dental Practice.
