“I actually enjoyed coming to the dentists. Thank you for all your care and attention. Satisfied with the teeth and I can now smile again!! Joy”
Joy, Belper

“I just wanted to pass on post-work praise for Dr Magdalena Stefaniak at Belper. I had a filling replaced with a white composite yesterday and the work and the way I was looked after by her and her assistant – I believe her name was Charlotte – was first rate.

Normally I feel like I’ve been hit by a truck after work like this, but after the numbness wore away I can barely tell it’s happened and the results are excellent.

Please pass on my sincere thanks for a job very well done.”

“I attended the Genesis Belper Practice recently for Botox, as it’s something I’ve always wanted.
The staff were very friendly and welcoming. I was a little nervous the treatment would hurt, but I never felt any discomfort, the Dentist was extremely gentle. The results are amazing, I would recommend to anyone if they were considering Botox or Fillers, that Genesis is the place to go!!! I’ll be heading back. Thank you for a great service! X”

“I went for my first check up since changing my dentist after a really bad experience.
I was so nervous before I went In, but both the dentist and nurse made me feel at ease.
They were positive about any issues that I may have, offered plenty of reassurance, and I am actually looking forward to my next appointment?!!
Would recommend to anyone of a nervous disposition.”
