Thank you to all Staff at Muirhead Dental Practice. My invisalign treatment has come to an end and my teeth are just the way I wanted. I will definitely recommend you to friends and family.

Afsana, Shipley


As well as my teeth looking so much better without the big space between my top and bottom teeth, the work that you have done has also stopped my neck pains and headaches.

Natasha, Leeds


I am writing to thank you for the excellent job you have done on my front teeth – I am really delighted with them.

Virginia, Bradford


The teeth in my lower jaw were crowned in 2003. It took a day in the surgery, no pain, and it was affordable! Three years on, and I’m delighted with the work. Thank you Rob, for giving me back my smil

Beryl, Shipley


If you are in a position to choose private dental treatment then I would have no reservation in recommending Rob. My teeth look 20 years younger, what is that worth?

Chris, Baildon


As a fellow dentist, it is always interesting/daunting being on the receiving end of treatment. My experience with Rob and his team was exceptional and made me proud to be part of the profession.
