Our business grows primarily through word of mouth recommendations, please take a moment to see what our clients think of our service, by taking a look at our great testimonials below.
Excellent in Every Way!
I called as an emergency patient and was seen the same day. The receptionist was lovely, follow up was really caring, the dentist was a really nice guy and his work was excellent. I had a chipped cosmetic filling replaced, which I’ve had done a few times by a few different dentists, and this time was by far the smoothest procedure and the neatest result. Highly recommend them!
I wish I had been coming here for Years!
I can thoroughly recommend Christchurch Dental. I am a new patient and I have had my initial consultation with Derek, followed by a hygienist appointment with Anna and another appointment with Ash. Everyone I have seen so far has been absolutely amazing – so kind, considerate and caring. They have so much time for their patients, they explain everything in simple terms and I even had a phone call in the evening to ask how I was. I don’t think I will ever be able to say I enjoy going to the dentist, but Derek and the team certainly make it as comfortable as possible. I really wish I had joined them years ago! Thank you.
Nothing but Praise!
I have been a patient at Christchurch Dental for many years. I have recently had root canal treatment with Dr Ash. I cannot praise him and the team enough. He is totally professional, courteous, kind and always taking time to explain. I would highly recommend this practice.
Such a Nice Dental Practice!
As a new patient I was very happy with all the staff and the service provided by Christchurch Dental Practice. My only regret is that I never registered earlier. Everyone is very friendly, helpful and, being very nervous of the dentist, everyone was so understanding and did their best to reassure me. As I hate high-pitched sounds, Derek very kindly put himself out to provide me with headphones and some great music while I needed to see the hygienist for a clean up. Not like a dental surgery at all as everyone is so nice. After only 2 visits, my dental phobia is disappearing fast and my mouth and teeth feel wonderful! Would thoroughly recommend to anyone nervous of the dentist and everyone else too. Couldn’t wish for a better dental surgery. Thank you so much!
First Class Practice, from start to finish!
As an extremely nervous patient who has avoided the Dentist for the last 14 years, Christchurch Dental has been brilliant. From my initial booking to the treatment I have received so far, they have been so accommodating, considerate and patient; ensuring my experience has been as comfortable and stress-free as possible.
Derek has been fantastic. I would highly recommend Christchurch Dental, especially if you are a nervous patient or have had a bad experience in the past. I couldn’t be more pleased & impressed!
Relaxing & Reassuring Dentistry!
I had the best dental experience today (sounds strange I know) but I’ve always been terrified of the dentist and these wonderful people always make me feel at ease. Had a deep filling today and didnt feel a thing I felt so relaxed . So thank you Derek and the team very much.
5 Star Service!
5 star professional service. I recently undertook treatment to have my teeth straightened using Invisalign, and some final cosmetic work to repair some damage to my front teeth. Throughout my treatment Derek and the Team were very supportive, and took the time and care to ensure that I was happy with the final result. Overall, I am extremely happy with the outcome, and would highly recommend Christchurch Dental practice due to the great service I have received.
I wouldn’t go Anywhere Else!
Have been seeing Derek and his team for close to 10 years now (time flies!). A few things make Derek stand out:
– I always know what’s going on. Some people might not want to know but it’s is important that I am not just sitting in the chair with my mouth wide open!
– Professional and courteous
– Latest technologies – you don’t feel like that you are being seen from someone in the dark ages!
– Follow-up care: perhaps one of the most important aspect – I never feel that I am left alone after an important procedure.
My entire family goes to see him. If that’s not a positive testimony I don’t know what is!
I have been a patient at the practice for many years and have watched it expand over the years. Derek and his staff are always attentive and take care to fully explain the procedures they propose and give alternatives where there are any. The expansion of the practice has aided getting emergency appointments when necessary and I look forward to completion of the expanded practice rooms.
The care is exceptional as once when travelling to SE Asia I developed an issue at Dubai and Derek happily responded to an email with a picture of the issue I had and gave advise as to how to deal with the matter until my return.
Confidence Restoring Dentistry
I have been a patient at the practice for a few years now and I must say Derek and the team are very professional and Derek always explain the best treatment possible I have now got my confidence back after years of covering my mouth when I talk but most of all Derek has given me my smile back never been happier
Pain Free Treatment!
Recently started coming to the practice, has improved my overall view on visiting the dentist – they take time & care to explain every step of the way and always happy to answer any questions.
I Had an appointment today with Dr Ash for 2 filling on my front teeth & was pain free and done with photos of every step taken to review the work done after. Highly recommend.
We would thoroughly recommend this excellent practice!
‘My husband and I have been going to the Christchurch Dental Practice since it was established. We have always been treated with care, courtesy and skill by the whole team. Whatever treatment we have needed has been quickly identified, thoroughly explained, including any options.
I recently had old fillings replaced in two adjoining lower front teeth. Dr Ash was extremely patient with me and my teeth as the work was intricate. The process was pain free and the results excellent.
We would thoroughly recommend this excellent practice.’
I’m over the moon!
‘From the bottom of my heart I would like to say a big thank you to Derek and the team for how they have looked after me. I have gone from being an anxious patient to looking forward to my appointments. Since a child I have had some horrendous experiences which left psychological scars.
To say I am happy with the work that I have had done would be an understatement, I am ecstatic. Now I can smile a proper toothy smile without feeling self-conscious.
I can’t recommend Christchurch Dental Practice enough to anyone seeking dental treatment.’
ONLY HAVE POSITIVE THINGS TO SAY
‘Ever since I can remember I have been frightened of going to the dentist and having bad experiences. I have now been a patient at Christchurch dental and only have positive things to say. The whole team are friendly and puts you at ease if feeling nervous. Derek is professional and explains everything that needs to be done in a calming manner.’
MADE TO FEEL AT EASE
‘I would like to say a huge thank you to Derek and the team for the excellent care I have received with them. I was a very nervous patient when I joined, having had some bad experiences in the past. I was always made to feel at ease by Derek, and found myself becoming calmer with each procedure. I am very happy with the work that I have had done, and now feel more confident when I smile! I would highly recommend Christchurch Dental Practice to anyone seeking dental treatment.’
THRILLED WITH THE RESULTS
‘Myself and my family have been clients of Christchurch Dental for several years now and feel we could not be in better hands for our dental care. I first met Derek and his team when I decided to have Invisalign treatment to straighten my teeth. My course of treatment was excellent and I was thrilled with the results, and still am!
Since then, I have continued to visit Christchurch Dental along with my family for all our routine dental care. It is always a pleasure to deal with the friendly team and my children always look forward to their visits. The surgery itself is bright and spotless, with all treatment and advice given in a highly professional manner.’
HIGHLY RECOMMEND TO ANYONE
‘Derek and the team were fantastic with me. I was referred to them with some complicated implant treatment being needed. I’m a very nervous patient and they really helped me through it all. I had every confidence in what they were doing. I would highly recommend them to anyone, especially if you are a slightly nervous patient.’
COLOUR MATCHES PRECISLEY
‘Just back in the office after the completion of a new crown. It colour matches precisely , fitted perfectly and is exactly what was promised. No qualms in recommending the team here for dental work.’
‘Visiting Ipswich, just one day before a holiday to Japan, on a Friday afternoon, I had a dental emergency when part of a tooth supporting a crown broke off. The exceptional and friendly receptionist found an appointment for me on the Saturday morning and Derek was able to carry out the necessary repair work in time for me to catch the flight later that afternoon. I was extremely impressed with the very professional and caring service provided and do not hesitate in recommending the Practice. Exemplary!’
FRIENDLY AND PROFESSIONAL TEAM
‘I would highly recommend Christchurch Dental Practice – excellent service from a very friendly and professional team. I am particularly pleased with my new implant – many thanks to Derek, Ash and the whole team.’
OUTSTANDING DENTAL PRACTICE
‘My husband and I have been attending this outstanding dental practice for many years. We always receive a warm welcome by name on arrival, and all members of staff provide a good balance of friendly and personal service whilst remaining efficient and professional.
Both Derek and Ash are amazing dentists, both of them putting you at ease and explaining what they are doing each step of the way. I would like to say a very big thank you to Dr Ash for work recently undertaken. He is such a perfectionist and so patient.’
KIND AND CONSIDERATE
‘I have been a patient at the practice for the last four years and have found the whole team helpful and professional. I am not the best patient by any means, but Derek has always been so kind and considerate to me which I appreciate so much. Thank you.’
CHANGE MY VIEW OF DENTAL HEALTH
‘Having had horrendous experiences as a child, I could not imagine ever looking forward to dentistry. Derek and his entire team laid that ghost pretty much from the first visit.
I realise that I presented as a challenge but I am convinced that, without Christchurch Dental, my attitude to dental health would have remained negative.’
ALWAYS TAKE THE TIME TO EXPLAIN
‘We have been attending this dental surgery for many years and we have always felt comfortable and confident with the dental treatment we have received. Derek and Ash and the rest of the staff , always take the time to explain what the are doing and we never feel rushed’
WOULD NEVER GO ANYWHERE ELSE
‘Would highly recommend Christchurch Dental, amazing service and the staff are so friendly. It took me a long time to find a good dentist and I would never go anywhere else now.’
FRIENDLY AND HELPFUL
‘As an anxious patient I find everyone at the practice brilliant at putting you at ease, friendly and helpful.
After having treatment today, I have to say that everyone including Derek and Ash went out of their way to make me comfortable and at ease. Ash is brilliant, and I can’t recommend the practice enough.
Thanks very much!’
EVERYONE WAS SO HELPFUL
‘I just love this dental practice! All the staff are so welcoming and accommodating.
I had my check up today and everyone was so helpful with my little baby.
I cannot recommend this dentist enough!!!!’
‘I lost a crown and my dentist was closed so came here through Denplan in despair as I looked like a witch and was going for 2 meals and to a hotel for 2 nights. They were simply marvelous, so kind and caring and they pulled out all the stops for me. I came out smiling (yes really) and I can’t thank them enough. Dr Ash and everyone there, a million thankyous!!!!’
SO PLEASED WITH THE RESULTS
‘Found a dentist I love going to and don’t dread! Recently had a course of whitening and some edge bonding on my front teeth, ready for my wedding next month. So, pleased with the results! The advice given by Derek and the team is always what is best for their patients, they listen to what you want cosmetically also and will do what they can to accommodate! Thank you, guys, really pleased’
WARM AND WELCOMING
‘Derek and the team are so warm and welcoming. Being a nervous patient, it is so important that they make me feel at ease. They are helping me with my quest for straight and healthy teeth using Invisalign and I am very grateful. A great practice which I would highly recommend! Thank you to all.’
I WOULD CERTAINLY RECOMMEND
‘My son-in-law recommended Derek and his team to me and I can see why. All the staff have just the right mix of professionalism and friendly care. As a nervous patient I was greatly reassured by Derek’s explanation of what my treatment entailed, and I was given the opportunity to ask questions. The evening follow up call from Derek was much appreciated. The nearby parking arrangement is a great advantage too. I would certainly recommend the practice to family and friends’
PROFESSIONAL FRIENDLY DENTAL CARE
‘I would like to say a big thank you to Dr Ash and all the team at Christchurch Dental Practice for the friendly professional treatment, care and aftercare they have given me from start to finish.
I can honestly say I have never received such professional friendly dental care in my life.
I’ll openly admit to being a nervous patient, But Dr Ash and the team made me feel at ease during my treatment, from the moment I turn up for my appointment, to the moment I leave.
From my very first visit, right through to the end of my treatment, everyone at the practice has treated me exceptionally well, the whole team are always professional, always polite and friendly, all are a credit to dentistry and to the practice.
So to all the team.. A big thank you once again for looking after me like you have and for the warm welcome each time I visit.’
CLEAN, COMFORTABLE AND MODERN
‘WOW this place deserves 10/10! I haven’t even had my treatment here yet, but I have had my consultation and my discussions appointment. I have all of my treatments booked in the next few months, the first impression I had of this practice is wonderful the staff who I have met so far have been outstanding, being a nervous patient and not much confidence with my teeth, I feel fully assured that I will be a happy girl once I’ve had my treatment. I already feel confident with my dentist Ashvin he has been very supportive and understanding, the practice is clean, comfortable and modern and your made to feel welcome by the lovely Clare on reception on both occasions she has made me feel comfortable and the communication is great. Look forward to seeing you guys soon. Thank you, Christchurch dental practice’
NOTHING IS EVER TOO MUCH TROUBLE
‘Derek and his team have looked after me through my Invisalign treatment which started last year!
They are always professional and courteous, and nothing is ever too much trouble!
I would highly recommend them if you are thinking of Invisalign, it was the best decision I made going to Christchurch Dentist Practice!
Thank you guys’
‘I would thoroughly recommend this dentist – Derek is amazing and so friendly he makes you feel very relaxed and comfortable. Derek did my crowns for me and I am so pleased with the end result – I finally feel comfortable and happy with my teeth! He is such a perfectionist wanting to get it just right which I think is a great quality to have. I can’t recommend enough, and all the staff are super friendly – I honestly would not go to another dentist now! Thank you, Derek and team’
IT WAS SO EXCITING
‘I went to Christchurch dental practice for my six-month smiles.
My teeth were very crooked and I was getting more conscious of them all the time .Once I had made the decision to have braces I went for a consultation with Derek who made me feel at ease and was very professional.
A few weeks later I had my braces put on and things started to move very quickly it was so exciting. I found them quite comfortable to live with , I went every four weeks to get them tightened which sometimes made them ache for a day but nothing to moan about as when they were tightened you could really see them changing .
It took one year for the finished result a bit longer than some as I have a small bottom jaw which Derek worked really hard on and put a lot of thought into getting me a slight over bite which was achieved with a great result.
Last of all I had some whitening which was the perfect finish.
I absolutely love my teeth and people complement me all the time.
I would recommend the six month smile and Christchurch dental practice to anyone wanting perfect teeth.
Thanks to Derek and all the staff’
NO LONGER THE DREADED VISIT
‘Derek and his team have been looking after my family and myself since he took over Christchurch many years ago. I cannot recommend highly enough the care we have received over those years. It is no longer the dreaded visit to the dentist that used to be the case but more a case of a visit to friends. Derek’s passion for dentistry and his professionalism come across and the whole team at Christchurch are a credit to the practice. Anyone looking for a dentist in Ipswich have struck gold if you come across this practice.’
FRIENDLY, PROFESSIONAL AND NONJUDGMENTAL
‘It started with a phone call. I was very nervous and embarrassed as I had neglected my teeth due to balancing caring for my late partner and our children.
The staff were friendly, professional and nonjudgmental. After extensive treatment and dental implant surgery, I am now smiling again and even allowed my photo to be taken. I highly recommend the practice. Thank you.’
SUPPORTIVE AND PATIENT
‘As a very nervous patient, I have always found Derek supportive and patient, I have a very bad gag reflex but have found all treatments to be comfortable.’
VERY FRIENDLY AND HELPFUL
‘Thanks Ash for the great work done. Also very friendly and helpful.’
FRIENDLY AND PROFESSIONAL
‘An excellent dental practice with a friendly and professional staff.’

BEST DENTIST EVER
‘Thank you so much to Derek and Harriet both my fav’s!
Best Dentist ever!!!!
Derek you rock!
Calm and kind and caring that’s why I come all the way from Halesworth!
Staff are all lovely.
Seriously recommend to everyone.’
‘Derek and the team at Christchurch Dental are excellent. I used to be quite nervous at the dentist but this has improved at each visit over the years that I have been seeing Derek. I am currently going through Invisalign. The results so far have been great and Derek’s patience and care are much appreciated.’
A WONDERFUL TEAM OF STAFF AND EXPERT DENTISTS
‘I just wanted to drop you an email to thank you for the way your practice dealt with my daughter’s emergency appointment that she had today.
**** was having some serious toothache and was in floods of tears yesterday (Friday) around 15.30. We drove to get her seen by her normal dentist but they said they couldn’t see her despite her being in so much pain. This is when I called you guys. I spoke to Clare and she managed to get **** an emergency appointment today – which was superb.
We have just got home and unfortunately **** had to have an injection and her tooth filled, which for any ten year old is an ordeal.
However with Dr Ash’s gentleness and reassurance **** was soon relaxed whilst having her injection and filling.
Dr Ash really impressed me with the way he spoke to **** and explained brilliantly exactly what he was going to do, but put in a way that **** could understand and most importantly not worry about. Also Cara was a calming influence whilst **** was having her treatment.
So a massive thank you from me and my wife. I don’t believe there are many dental practices that would even come close to having such a wonderful team of staff and expert dentists.
It would be appreciated if you would share this email with all involved including Suzanne who was also great today.
Thanks again Derek, you guys are awesome.’
VERY GOOD PRACTICE
‘Very good practice. Have been going here for years never had an issue with the service they give here.’
VERY SAFE PAIR OF HANDS
‘I have always found visits to Derek’s practice to be pleasurable and free from anxiety. Staff are warm and welcoming, the waiting area is attractive, Derek is very friendly and explains everything that he is doing, and the treatments are efficient and have been without problems. I feel I am in a very safe pair of hands and on the basis of work that I’ve had done over the years would recommend this practice to anyone.’
THIS DENTAL PRACTICE IS OUTSTANDING
‘This dental practice is outstanding. We always receive a warm welcome by name on arrival, and all the staff manage to provide a wonderful balance of friendly and personal service whilst remaining efficient and professional. The dental care is excellent and I cannot recommend this practice highly enough.’
‘I have not been to the dentist for a long time as I am nervous. Everyone was very friendly and helped me through my ordeal. I highly recommend Christchurch.’
An asset to the practice
‘My second appointment with Dr Ash, really comfortable, good work. An asset to the practice.’
‘Derek is an excellent dentist who takes pride in offering the highest level of service. It’s a really friendly small practice where patients really matter. Highly recommended.’
The dental care is excellent
‘This dental practice is outstanding. We always receive a warm welcome by name on arrival, and all the staff manage to provide a wonderful balance of a friendly and personal service whilst remaining efficient and professional. The dental care is excellent, and I cannot recommend this practice highly enough.’
The smile I always dreamt of
‘My husband suggested that I have my teeth done for our wedding, as he knew I hated having my photo taken and never smiled in photos. Derek is very warm and friendly and put me at ease. We discussed all my options given the limited timescale before the wedding. I could not have imagined having such beautiful teeth, I smiled all day long on my wedding day and couldn’t believe how relaxed I felt in front of the camera! The whole team at Christchurch Dental are kind, friendly and professional. Everyone makes time to go that extra mile to make your experience perfect! Thank you so much to Derek and his team for giving me the smile I have always dreamed of.’
Thank you for all your help
‘A friend recommended this dental surgery to me and I’m glad he did. Derek is a great dentist and always has a smile on his face and talks you through all the processes. The staff are also amazing, with you being greeted with a warm smile and cheery ‘hello’ every time you arrive. Thank you for all your help’
‘I had an appointment yesterday with Derek and the hygienist who’s name I can’t remember and I always get super nervous going to the dentist but every time I come to you I leave feeling happy and even though I’ll never be fully relaxed – because I’m terrified of dentists in general, I’ve never had a better experience than with you guys. The receptionist should also be mentioned because she is super nice and patient and professional and always smiley which really helps my anxiety. You also put up with me changing my appointments due to work and have never been funny with me about it (again, it’s the lovely receptionist who puts up with this, I’m so sorry). So, I just wanted to say thank you. I was too wimpy to say it in person! Keep up the fabulous work, best dental surgery ever!’
I am forever grateful
‘I haven’t taken a photo of me smiling and showing my teeth for 25 years until today! I literally cannot thank Derek and the team enough for everything they have done for me during my treatment. Their time and patience getting to know each patient on a none to one basis is second to none – Derek has completely cured my fear of dentists, which believe me, I never thought I would say! You have not only changed my smile but the way I see myself! I am a completely new person now thanks to this team, and for that, I am forever grateful’
‘I would thoroughly recommend this dentist – Derek is amazing and so friendly he makes you feel very relaxed and comfortable. Derek did my crowns for me and I am so pleased with the end result – I finally feel comfortable and happy with my teeth! He is such a perfectionist wanting to get it just right which I think is a great quality to have. I can’t recommend enough and all the staff are super friendly – I honestly would not go to another dentist now! Thank you, Derek and team’
Smile Makeover including Invisalign
‘I’d like to say a big thank you for the superb dentistry work you have done for me in the last couple of years to straighten, restore and improve the appearance of my teeth. The results have genuinely exceeded my expectations.
Previously I’d always felt self-conscious of my teeth, especially when I smiled; strange as it may sound I never completely came to terms with my crooked teeth, but at the same time I sort of felt stuck with them. Consequently, for most of my adult life (more years than I care to admit) I often felt very self-conscious in social situations because of the appearance of my teeth. With hindsight, I should have made the decision to get my teeth straightened years ago….but I’m so glad I’ve done it now. I want to let you know above all how much it means to me to make it a reality.
I’d also like to thank you for all you’ve done for me over more than 10 years in maintaining the health and appearance of my teeth – especially given the not insignificant challenges you’ve faced in my case (and yes it really is that long!). I feel incredibly fortunate to have you as my dentist and I can’t overstate how much I appreciate your work and the knowledge and authority that underpins it.
Indeed everything about your practice is absolutely first class, so please extend my ‘thank you’ to the whole team’
‘The best dentist I’ve ever had. Derek eases you by talking through everything he is doing. I have been a patient for over 3 years and cannot sing the praises of all the team enough.
Everyone is lovely, coming to the dentist no longer has to be something to dread.’
Thank you for everything!
