Dental Surgeries

Aquae Sulis Dental

Station Court, Ashley Avenue, Bath BA1 3DS, UK – 01225 339767

I had an accident about 14 months ago which killed off one of my front teeth and damaged three others. I'd seen my regular dentist who wanted to go completely over the top with my repair work - repairs, implants, gum re-shaping and even botox. All of which seemed unnecessary and terrifying for me not to mention it would have cost me a small fortune. I live in Basingstoke, but have family on the outskirts of Bath so decided to do some research and found Ian/Aquae Sulis Dental after an online search and got in contact. Ian assured me that he would do restorative dentistry instead of what had been offered elsewhere. He whitened my dead tooth from the inside to help with the colour (which I think I'll need to have done again soon but it's made a massive difference with just one treatment!), brought the shade of my other teeth up up a great standard before fixing the four teeth with composite fillings to match in. I have my natural smile back - it's just what I wanted and has hardly been intrusive on the teeth at all. The colours match, and he's shaped them really nicely too! Plus point? I'm terrified of injections - and this was by far the best experience I've every had. Barely felt a thing and was completely at ease. Thanks Ian for everything you've done! Also, thanks to the whole team - everyone is so friendly whenever you go in :)

I have never written a review for any service I have received or purchase made – ever!! Having been to Aquae Sulis for over 12 months of extremely intensive/extensive treatment I feel compelled to share my experience. I am a mature lady who, over the years has experienced some horrendous and detrimental dental treatment, all of which I endured for the sake of vanity!! I was becoming increasingly concerned about the condition and appearance of my teeth and my dentist, at the time, recommended a full set of implants as the solution. I was horrified. A dear friend recommended Dr Ian Bellamy at Aquae Sulis in Bath. I live in South Devon so had obvious reservations about the time and distance involved. I had a lengthy telephone consultation with Ian and my fears were allayed. I am one appointment away from completion of my treatment. There are only two back teeth that Ian was unable to salvage and replaced with implants. The rest of my teeth and gums are healthy, look absolutely brilliant and I couldn’t be more delighted. Ian and his team are totally professional, experienced, friendly and caring. Having spent years of feeling physically sick prior to a dental appointment I can honestly say (and I do know this sounds a bit mental!!) I actually look forward to the 250 mile round trip to see them all. 5 stars and couldn’t be more highly recommend by me. What price a SMILE?

Edgar Buildings Dental & Implant Clinic

7, Edgar Buildings, George St, Bath BA1 2EE, UK – 01225 466086

I have recently received root canal surgery performed by Dr.Ray Bellamy,and I am also in the process of having a single implant procedure with Philip Pettemerides. I would highly recommend these two very skilled practitioners, if you are going to undertake specialist dental treatment. Also the practitioners assistants and receptionists have made my experience of intensive dental treatment a calm time. I would highly recommend them.

I have had extensive treatment over the last eighteen months at Edgar Buildings from Ray Bellamy and Philip Pettemerides. In addition to being fine dentists, experts in their particular fields, they are unfailingly courteous, reassuring and considerate. I have complete confidence in both dentists.

mydentist, Walwyn Close, Twerton

Walwyn Cl, Twerton, Bath BA2 1ER, UK – 01225 339882

The best dentist I have ever been to,you feel comfortable as soon as you go in,which is a big plus if you are as nervous as myself. Very pleasant staff and Michael the dentist that has done all my treatment is so thorough and gentle, I am at total ease. Amazing practice.

Have visited this dentist several times, most recently today for an emergency appointment. They are absolutely fantastic - the receptionist, dentist, dentist's assistant... all made me feel so at ease despite my nerves and provided me with the best treatment possible. Highly recommended!

Rush Hill Surgery

20 Rush Hill, Bath BA2 2QH, UK – 01225 446087

Excellent surgery. Always found the receptionists kind, polite and helpful especially given how busy they must be. Never had a problem getting an appointment when one of the family has needed one.

Been with this surgery for 18 years and only had good experiences. One former receptionist was quite abrupt, but otherwise all good.

The Pulteney Practice

35 Great Pulteney St, Bath BA2 4BY, UK – 01225 464187

All I can say is its doctors practice very helpful and friendly

First to implement new system of getting a doctor's appointment. To begin this process one must tell the receptionist why you want to see a doctor. If you can satisfy the receptionist that you really do need to see a doctor a doctor will ring you back within an hour and give you an appointment. Not very popular.

Monmouth Surgery

8 Monmouth Pl, Bath BA1 2AU, UK – 01225 334618

The whole team have always been absolutely incredible to my family and myself. Cannot fault. Personal and caring in an extremely busy surgery having patients with chronic and complex health ,social and life style issues.Thank you.

NHS Direct is now NHS 24. Just dial 111 to speak to a professional or click the link below for there self help website. Lots of really useful info but keep clear of heart surgery! If in doubt ask your GP or call 111. Good luck.

St Martin's Hospital

Midford Road, Bath BA2 5RP, UK – 01225 831500

I've been trying to move an appointment on 4 separate occasions and unable to get through. I'm actually quite shocked at the disgusting manner in which I have just been spoken to by the receptionist / switchboard woman today on 16th April 17:32. I've never come across someone so curt and rude in my life, and then hanging up on me too, especially when I had been more than polite! I can only think that I had pronounced 'dieticians' incorrectly - if that could be considered a reason?! Aside from this, the dietician I have seen has been more than compassionate and very kind in her approach. I would thoroughly recommend her.

Car park can fill up quite easily on a weekday other than Friday.

CAU Steak Restaurant - Bath

1-2 Milsom St, Bath BA1 1BZ, UK – 01225 316158

I've been coming here for quite a while now. I also send my clients here when they ask me for recommendations and I'm yet to have a customer come back to me who didn't love it as much as I do. Steaks cooked to perfection every time, delicious sauces and sides and waiting staff are naturally great hosts. Brought my family here for my 21st and they catered very well to a range of needs and made the day extra special. I was also informed the burgers are made from cuts of left over steak and I must admit they were brilliant burgers. Cocktails are awesome and we have taken wine recommendations from staff each time and they have yet to fail us for a good pairing! Never a bad experience here and we will be coming back for a long time. Thank you to the CAU team! Our waiter (Anthony) was excellent!

Excellent steak cooked exactly to my liking, nice selection of Malbec wine to accompany the meal. Apple pie cheese cake is also worth a try..never thought candy floss would give it the edge. Friendly staff and great service
