“Snoring was becoming a real problem, not only for me, but for my husband as well. Sleepless nights were causing tiredness, irritation and frustration.

“I had tried numerous gadgets and ideas to stop the snoring: throat sprays, breathing strips, etc. but was finding the necessity to sleep in the spare room more and more common.

“Who would have ever imagined that a routine visit to Llanishen Dental Centre would change my sleeping patterns and without exaggeration, my quality of life!

“After a brief examination and having completed a questionnaire, I was informed that I would be suitable for the fitting of an oral device similar to a full gum shield.

“Impressions were taken and I had the device fitted which was to be worn at night. It only took me a couple of nights to get used to wearing the device, but the effect on my snoring was immediate. I stopped! I cannot believe how effective this device is.

“I would thoroughly recommend this course of treatment. It has certainly helped to change my life for the better.”


Nervous patient

“As a nervous patient care is always taken to keep me calm and reassured. I would recommend this practice as the equipment always seems to be state of the art, the waiting room is comfortable and attractive, hygienist appointments are a bonus and the receptionists are professional and efficient.”


“I have been attending the practice for nearly 40 years when it was sited over a shop in the village! I have always had extremely good treatment over the years. Although I no longer live in Cardiff I am happy to drive the 17 miles each way.

“Having had some bad experiences with the NHS I transferred to Richard on the recommendation of a friend. The care received is excellent and if needed prompt, friendly efficient staff. I feel confident that this practice will be able to keep my natural teeth going for as long as possible.

“The atmosphere in the practice is relaxing and the staff are very friendly. It’s important to me to have a dentist you are comfortable with and feel that you can trust in the decisions made – in Mr Hicks I feel I have that.. Plus it’s usually not difficult to get an appointment that suits me.

“I have always found the staff here are absolutely superb. I have had many visits recently of an emergency nature and I have been seen immediately every single time.”
