“Outstanding service provided by Dr Collie Moran and his team. I had a ceramic crown and it has been done perfectly and efficiently. Barbara and Raymond are also very professional and customer service oriented. It’s been a long time I didn’t feel so comfortable in a dental practice and I’d definitely come back now regularly. You can trust them and always find answers to all your questions and doubts about the treatment and the products they use."
“It was with some intrepidation that I booked at a new dentist, I needn’t have worried however. From the moment I arrive, I'm made to feel relaxed and welcome by Ray at the front desk. The care provided is excellent. Having now had a couple of visits I would certainly recommend Dr Britto and Putney Hill Dental to anyone looking for a dentist - excellent all round."
“Wonderful, friendly, professional service, a very big thank you to Dr Moran and his staff. I was made to feel very comfortable. I completely trust his judgement and would recommend the dental practice to my family and friends without any doubt. Thanks again!"
“A first class dental practice. Dr Collie Moran has carried out extensive work on my teeth, including crowns and a wisdom tooth extraction and is always highly professional and diligent in what he does. One of the most important factors for me is that I completely trust Collie’s judgement. He always explains dental options to you in a considered and balanced manner. I have no hesitation whatsoever in recommending this practice to others - in fact, I consider myself very fortunate to have this quality of dental practice available to me locally. Collie is also well supported by an excellent team so there is much strength in depth at this practice. Highly recommended."
“Really recommend this practice - the hygienist gave me a thorough clean and now my teeth are sparkling! I had some staining from drinking too many cuppas and she really took the time to make sure it was all gone. She also gave me some good tips for taking care of my teeth. Raymond on the desk was also lovely and welcoming! Great experience."
“I have been a patient of Collie’s for around eighteen years and I can’t recommend him more highly. He is super with nervous patients and very reassuring. I have had various treatments over the years and he is always gentle and skillful. Barbara is an excellent hygienist too."
“Collie and Barbara are both gentle and super efficient. Been a patient for two years now and always happy with my service. Sometimes a struggle to get in so book early but a testament to a great job. Both give really good advice and suggestions without being pushy."
