"I had my 1st experience at Shelley and Pope I was very nervous as I had multiple things wrong with my teeth, when I went in the receptionists were so warm and friendly I was then taken upstairs to see James what a pleasant person he looked at my teeth and put my mind at rest straight away, his nurse was really nice .  After James and the hygienists advice my teeth and gums feel tons better.  I am ready to start my treatment .Thank you."
