The Village Dental Practice

Southport House Dental Practice

Always friendly and smiley.

Hyslop Dental and Implant Clinic

8 Albert Rd, Southport PR9 0LE, UK – 01704 536003

After attending Hyslop dental for an exam appointment i was told that i needed an implant on my front tooth as my tooth had failed.I Was extremely upset and distressed at this point but i was soon put at ease by James & his team who discussed all options with me and i opted to have an implant. I was nervous about the procedure but the practice has a Ct Scanner on site so we could see the scan and discuss the results straight away which put me at ease. On the day of the procedure i couldn't fault James and his team i was made to feel at total ease throughout and they all helped make it as relaxed as possible. I have now finished all my treatment and i am totally over the moon with the results. I can now eat all my favorite things without worrying and have got my confidence back. The aftercare service has also been amazing and would not hesitate to recommend the Hyslop Dental team. Thanks for everything you have restored my faith in dentists.

When my Dentist told me I was facing the prospect of a denture my heart sank and the guilt of all those years of insufficient care for my teeth hit me hard and confirmed my suspicion - that I was getting older! However, after a short consultation with James Hyslop I was reassured that all was not lost and that Dental Implants could come to my rescue. Today, I have just completed a fairly lengthy course of treatment but my mouth now feels like it is twenty years younger - I have a complete set of teeth which both look, and function normally ( without the bulky plate or problems associated with dentures ). Whilst the process is lengthy (12 months for me for 4 crowns and 3 implants) this is the result of James’ attention to detail and his refusal to take short cuts and at all times allowing plenty of time for the healing process thereby ensuring the best outcome. James is clearly a very experienced professional at the very top of his game and is justifiably proud of the quality of his work. His clinic is fully equipped with all the necessary X-ray and scanning equipment so everything can be carried out ‘in house’ and the staff are always polite,friendly and very attentive. To anyone contemplating this type of dental work I have no hesitation whatsoever in recommending James and his team - I am very pleased with the final outcome for me.


Dr Stephen Dodd

10 Scarisbrick New Rd, Southport PR8 6PY, UK – 01704 360322

I have been to see Dr Dodd several times over the last few months, leaving extremely pleased after each visit. He’s extremely professional and clearly passionate about his work, with a fine eye for detail, but also very friendly creating a relaxed atmosphere. More recently I’ve had my teeth whitened and some cosmetic dentistry using composite bonding. The final result is much better than I could have imagined and am absolutely thrilled with my new smile!

Couture Designer Smile. Stephen provided me with natural looking veneers using the highest quality workmanship I could have asked for. This is one of the best decisions I have ever made. No hesitation in recommending his work.

Kew Surgery & Dental Practice

New surgery, integrated dentists. Free parking. Hospital is 2 minute walk away. But the reception is awful, with uncomfortable chairs, unreadable magazines and an soulless atmosphere.

NHS Direct is now NHS 24. Just dial 111 to speak to a professional or click the link below for there self help website. Lots of really useful info but keep clear of heart surgery! If in doubt ask your GP or call 111. Good luck.

Southport and Formby District General Hospital

Town Lane Kew, Southport PR8 6PN, UK – 01704 547471

Went to the A&E with a painful right foot. The staff were all very professional. The waiting room was very busy for minor injury assessment and treatment. There was a lot of more severe cases which was evident from the number of ambulance crew giving reception details and relatives who were looking for there relatives. Our NHS work really hard under some very challenging conditions and they do a wonderful job and Southport A&E did not disappoint.

Visited the DVT unit @ A&E today and they were amazing! Couldn't fault them, very friendly and reassuring!

Delicious, absolutely delicious. A warm and welcoming atmosphere with pleasant, friendly staff. The food was delicious, we were even brave and tried the frogs legs and snails (which were excellent, if a little intimidating). The mains were spectacular and I could write a short but provocative love letter to the apple tart, it was one of the tastiest things I've ever eaten! 5 stars, have already recommended to friends
