I joined this Practice earlier this year when I had a lot of dental pain. Andrew Barber sorted everything out very quickly and efficiently and I was so pleased. Since then he has restored my teeth to their full dental health. I am very impressed by the whole team here. Amy, the hygienist, is such a perfectionist too and my teeth have never felt so clean! Their care during the current situation has been superlative too. We are lucky to have this practice in Cheltenham.read more

I do not normally post reviews of my experiences with service and quality in any sphere as a customer, but I make an exception following my recent treatment at Loval House Dental under the expertise of Andrew Barber and his team.It is not an exaggeration to say that he has transformed the comfort and function of my dentition beyond memory. I have only been under his care for about 2 years, with my greatest improvement in that time, for which I am very grateful.Thank you.read more

I have been more than pleased with the care I have received from Lovat House Dental ,especially Andrew Barber. He has restored my confidence by treating my gums back to good health having had a bad experience and bad advice from my previous dentist.read more

Really great friendly completely pain free service. Went in for root canal work and was very surprised at how painless and comfortable Andrew and his assistant (sorry, can’t remember her name) made it for me.We managed to complete the work in a single sitting.They’ve even phoned me a few times since to check that everything is still ok.Which is nice.I would definitely recommend Lovat House for anyone looking for a dentist.I now fear the tattooist more than the dentist.read more

My Barber suggested that I should see my GP regarding the acid erosion I had been experiencing for many years. As a result of this, and the investigations that followed, I was diagnosed with a Haitus Hernia. It is clear that this had been causing acid erosion and I am now on appropriate medication to reduce acid reflux. I am very grateful to Mr Barber for identifying that there was a medical problem underlying my tooth erosion issues.read more

Mr. Barber carried out a dental implant for me, filling a gap that I have had for some years. I am very happy with the result – I now have my smile back! He ran through the process thoroughly at the beginning, and at each step of the treatment. He explained both the work to be done at each stage and the costs involved. I am happy to reccomend the practice to anyone considering having this kind of work done.read more

I visited Andrew following the completion of my orthodontic treatment to see what could be done to improve the appearance of one “peg” tooth. He talked me through the pros and cons of all the options available. I elected to have a composite build up and I am so pleased, the tooth looks absolutely fantastic and I wouldn’t hesitate in recommending him to friends and family.read more

Andrew has worked wonders with my teeth both aethsetically and restoritively and I would recommend him to others.

It was a delight to find Dr James Barber after many years of indifferent treatment on the NHS. I have now been now registered with James for nearly 5 years and had a number of dental treatments. Every treatment has been painless and without complication. James is both extremely professional and very personable, I’d have no hesitation in recommending him.read more

Mr Barber did veneers on all my front teeth a few years ago. I had always been unhappy with how my teeth looked, and the result was great. Can even smile in photos now. 6 years later still look perfect. Painless and quick process. Can highly recommend him.read more
