Back in March 2018 I had an accident whilst out walking my dog, which resulted in me damaging my upper two front teeth and my kneecap ! My Husband came home and contacted our Dental practise Saving Smiles, they advised me to go straight away to the surgery and Mr Nigel Kirkpatrick who was our dentist of nearly 30 years, would see me straight away to assess the damage. After x-raying my teeth it was apparent I would have to lose one of them as the damage had reached right up into the root. Mr Kirkpatrick manage to temporarily fill the teeth fusing them together, giving me a bit of breathing space to get over the initial shock of the accident and let my mouth settle down. He gave me some great advice about the options available going forward, for me to consider over the following days, I decided to go for a tooth implant if it was possible, I felt it would be the nearest thing to having my own tooth back ! Mr Kirkpatrick couldn’t perform the implant procedure but he highly recommended and booked me in to see one of his colleagues Dr Vivak Shah, who had also recently taken over the practice from him. Dr Shah or Vivak as we now call him was amazing he explained the procedure and told me it would take approximately 9 months if i was a successful candidate for the dental implant. Also he costed the treatment and reminded us that the private dental plan we had would cover some of the costs in the event of an accident which the practise also dealt with for me. I was extremely anxious about the treatment ahead, I don’t know if it was apparent, Vivak took moulds of my teeth and booked me in to have the tooth extracted 2 weeks later. At the appointment he fitted the plate with the one denture straight away, which Vivak said I would hate ! and he was right I did with a vengeance, but I would have hated it more if I had been left with a gap ! Vivak always talked through the treatment before and during the procedure which was very reassuring, I completely trust him and the team, I can honestly say I did not experience any pain during any of the procedures, I experienced a little discomfort after the surgery for a few days when stitches were needed but nothing salt water and ibuprofen couldn’t deal with! Today I have finished the treatment ! The implant was completed in time for Christmas approximately 9 months and was the best present ever 🎁 to myself, an improvement even on my old teeth ! The implant is FANTASTIC, I can taste food again now, it has given me back my confidence in talking to people and also eating out in restaurants. It was not a good year for me but thanks to Vivak and the team at Saving Smiles I can smile once again here’s to 2019 ! 🎉 Thank you again – F Eastmond – 23rd Jan 2019
We moved to the area 28 years ago. We have always received excellent service. We are always confident that any treatment needed by either of us, will always be dealt with, very professionally. Yes, don’t hesitate in making contact with the Practice. If you are looking for professional treatment in a pleasant and relaxed atmosphere then, Saving Smiles, Weedon, will definitely fit the bill.
Friendly and caring practiceWithout any doubt, this is the friendliest, most relaxing and caring service I have attended in the past 60 years. The standard of treatment, after care and advice I received could be described in no other way than – ‘Superb.
Christmas Holiday Service
Woke up Christmas morning to find that I had swallowed a filling. Rand up December 27th got an appointment on the 28th and visited the surgery and wizz bang a new filling there and then! Well done to all who treated me with great respect. Thanks.
Lovely DentistI must say that having moved to Rushden from London I was looking for a good dentist for the family and I have been extremely lucky in finding this practice. Not only is it spotless and clean with friendly receptionists but the dentist is very friendly and courteous. They are brilliant with my son and makes him laugh throughout his appointment and this puts him totally at ease with the dentist and makes a trip there enjoyable. They explain all treatment needed thoroughly and does not do unnecessary work. I couldn’t. recommend this practice enough. Old fashioned dentists with old fashioned values but modern premises and modern equipment. Best of both worlds.
A brilliant village facility offering first class treatment
Ok so I’m a Denplan patient. We go on holiday in 2 days, l awoke with a very bruised tooth, called into the Surgery this morning, asking if l could possibly be seen before the holiday. I was asked to wait – within 5 minutes l was in the dentist’s chair and, some 10 minutes later, “problem solved” – you really can’t ask for better than that! Having read previous, not so complimentary reviews, l would strongly disagree with any adverse criticism of the Hygenist, they are the most gentle of practitioners, just ask my Wife! It’s a 10 out of 10 from me -thank you Saving Smiles. You are a Professional and, thoroughly pleasant group of people.
We moved to the area a while back and Saving Smile was recommended by a neighbour. We all attend as a family and couldn’t be happier with the professionalism and care shown. Judith in particular spent time explaining exactly what she was doing and why, this was of great appreciation as it was the first couple of trips to the dentist for our toddler. I personally required some work and Judith was helpful, professional and reassuring during every stage of the procedures and took time to explain aftercare in great detail. I rarely write reviews but I honestly can’t recommend Saving Smile enough.
I am extremely happy with the care I always receive . Many thanks.
Mr Kirk Patrick is excellent and I have been with the surgery for many years and the staff are always polite and helpful especially if booking urgent appointments. In summary the best dentist you could have.
Mr Kirkpatrick and his staff are always helpful, friendly and professional, I have always received exceptional care and would recommend to anyone.
Always friends and made to feel at ease 🙂
Very understanding for a nervous patient and excellent work.
Always punctual and the results of recent treatment, exceeded my expectations.
Lovely friendly staff and dentist. The dentist is fantastic with my Son and I and she always talks and explains things to him in an amazingly lovely way.
Always get courteous and professional treatment. Moving 20 miles distance away from the establishment i still go there because of the personnel looking after my teeth and the jaw massage!!
Mr Kirkpatrick has been my dentist for more than forty years. During that time he has given me a first class service in a friendly and professional manner; his dental work has been faultless and I have always found his advice to be very reliable. I cannot recommend him too highly. The practice staff are friendly and efficient.
Fantastic service, kind, caring staff. Friendly helpful staff, professional
I have been a customer for many years and have always been relaxed and at ease If you have any worries the dentists will put you at ease as long as you explain to them what your worries are. They will explain everything. Excellent for children and adults alike. Very much recommended.
I have been a patient of Queen Street Dental Practice for several years now and without doubt the best dentist I have ever had.
My dentist is wonderful. Owing to a traumatic experience in my teens, I have found it almost impossible to drag myself anywhere near a dentist. I did find a lovely person in West Oxfordshire, but they retired and I was in despair. Moving to Rushden, a friend recommended this dentist. I can now confidently say that, if something goes wrong, I now have no hesitation in ringing and making an appointment. They are extremely professional, but is also extremely compassionate. They also have a sense of humour. I have no hesitation whatsoever in recommending them.
Building is clean. Receptionist friendly and helpful. The dentists obviously care about their work. There is a hygienist at the surgery.
Outstanding from the moment I walked into the practice.Very child friendly my son had a very traumatic accident knocking his front teeth.The dentists went out there way to make him feel at ease and over the last couple of months have kept regular checks on him.I would definitely recommend this practice…My son is a very happy little boy now….100% child friendly
Heaven I found a dental practice on my doorstep – apart from the convenient location the welcoming professional staff made my visit a pleasure – hard to believe with my fear of being in a dental chair. Thorough examination with compassionate patient and kind staff.
I am new to the Daventry area. Large part of a previously filled tooth broke off. Phoned WDS expecting to wait a week or more for attention. The service was busy; I left a message and the receptionist phoned me within an hour. I was given an appointment for the following morning as a new NHS patient. Spent a few minutes in the waiting room filling in the obligatory form and then ushered in as the next patient. Very thorough check and options discussed. Had the necessary treatment there and then without having to return. Top job. Most professional dental practice I have ever attended. I will be going back for regular checks. Many thanks.
Having recently moved into the area my daughter recommended Weedon Dental Surgey to me as she was thrilled with the treatment she had received there. For the last 12 months I have undergone extensive treatment which has revolutionised both the functionality and cosmetic appearance of my teeth. It has been done by an outstanding dentist who is personable, caring and extremely talented backed up by a an excellent team of staff. All my treatment was discussed with me and amended where appropriate. I would have no hesitation in recommending this surgery to anyone.
I recently had some major dental work completed by Weedon Dental Surgery. This was much more complex than my usual dental work, with one tooth to have an old root canal redone, and one tooth with a cyst to be removed! The procedures and an outline of the work to be done were explained in a very clear and detailed way by Dr. This gave me confidence in a good outcome. The work was successfully completed in a most professional manner in just two sessions. Thanks again to Dr and the team for a great job!
I’ve been a patient/client at several dentists both in & around Northampton. The dentist here and their team offer outstanding customer service,give detailed feedback and thoughts regarding the best treatment for you.Youre treated with dignity & respect and whilst many people “fear a trip to the dentist” this team makes it literally painless. The most professional treatment I’ve ever received,I know I’m in the best possible hands
I am a very nervous patient when it comes to going to the dentist. I cannot thank you enough to my dentist and nurses who made me feel at ease constantly talking me through things and reassuring me throughout my appointment. Quality service
Just to let you all know how very pleased I was with my dental work that has recently been completed. Vivak did a wonderful job, and completed it in time for my daughters wedding. My teeth were the star attraction ( with the exception of the beautiful bride of course !!!!). Thanks to all for your help and kindness
Great service, the treatment I get every time I go is excellent, a real friendly bunch of guys/girls.
Every time I have been I have been greeted and treated in a manner that is unfaultable.
Don’t mind going to the Dentist at all now. They have all been so good.
Excellent patient care, everyone is so nice, makes going to the dentist a pleasurable experience.
Excellent attention to detail, patient & great tooth/gum care. A good team from start to end of each & every visit.
Having visited the Weedon dental practice over many years, I can honestly say, I have been treated with the utmost respect and courtesy on every visit. And will continue seeking treatment and advice with them for many more years.
Great Surgery with excellent customer care. I have been a patient with Weedon Surgery since earlier in the year, and have had numerous procedures including dental implants. It’s a pleasure visiting this surgery. Vivak is fantastic and I would recommend him strongly
I have been coming to Saving Smiles now for 9 years and my experience here is excellent. I am currently undergoing dental implant surgery, from the start Vivak detailed every step of the procedure. The care was better than I anticipated and I have had an incredible outcome with the treatment. The staff have been excellent and happy all the way through and I highly recommend anyone who considers having dental implant treatment to Saving Smiles
Thanks to the exceptional care I have received at this practice , my teeth and gum health has improved dramatically in the last 3 years. This is down to the treatment and education offered to help improve, what could have led to serious tooth loss. The whole team from top to bottom are very professional, eliminating any of the “fear factor” associated with dentists. Would recommend 100%.
16 reviews 2 months ago- Fantastic surgery! Ive always been very nervouse if not scared of going to the dentist due to previouse experience but at saving smiles that changed. Mr kahn explained the procedure as he carried it out making sure I was happy and at else and after 2 hours in the chair I feel very happy about giving them a call and changing my dentist. Yes nhs is cheaper but I feel you do t get that level of professionalism that i got from saving smiles massive thankyou.

No-one can truthfully say they enjoy a visit to the Dentist, but I can honestly say that the service I received today for a filling was excellent. I was made to feel comfortable, knew exactly what was happening and never felt a thing!….I would recommend this practice for their service, staff and efficiency.
1 review 3 months ago- Excellent prompt friendly & efficient service. Requested appointment & seen & sorted within 15 minutes – could not ask for more.
1 review 3 months ago- Had recent visit for check up. Told Dr Shah I had some sensitivity in tooth and I went straight into another room for some work along with treatment of tooth past. Still had sensitivity some days later and was straight back in for consultation and check up. Also asked me to continue treatment and email him with any issues. Can’t recommend enough Dr Shah and his team for professionalism and customer care putting patients first.
