Miss Tadpole (Tad)October 2023
Everyone was so friendly and nice. Great experience. Was nice to feel a little relief.
I needed a tooth taken out but my own dentist couldn’t do this due to medications I am taking. I was referred to the NHS hospital whose waiting list was a minimum 2 years. I couldn’t wait this long as my tooth flared up in pain frequently. I telephoned Harwood Dental Care, a private dental practise who not only saw me the same day but due to a cancellation actually took my tooth out. Absolutely brilliant. No pain, extraction in minutes, straight forward procedure and finally I am pain free. Massive thanks to Dr Dipesh Patel, and his staff.

I feel very blessed by having Dr Dipesh Patel and his team for my dental care. They have managed my rather complicated requirements with great expertise and skill. They always have patience and demonstrate their care in every aspect of their work. They really do want to see the best outcome and I am grateful that has been achieved. Thank you. Dipesh.
Maxine JohnsonMarch 2023
Excellent care and attention by all the team at Harwood Dental Care, Dr’s Vilas and Dipesh Patel are so caring and professional. Would highly recommend especially if being nervous about the dentist is a concern. Many thanks Harwood dental care.

Lovely dentist! I used to be very nervous of going to the dentist due to previous bad experiences at other practices, but immediately my mind was put at ease upon my first visit; dentists will do procedures at your pace, and you’re allowed to take breaks if needed. They’re extremely accommodating and friendly!
I have been going for a few years now, I can safely say that I am a lot less nervous to visit now, and I always leave smiling! 🙂
Ryan SweetnamJanuary 2023
Having moved home and needing to change dentist, this was my first visit to Harwood.
Dr. Patel, in particular, was excellent. Reassuring, informative, experienced, and friendly. Couldn’t have asked for more and will be sending my whole family.
Mark BJanuary 2023
I had Enlighten teeth whitening treatment done at Harwood Dental Care. The whole team was super professional and made everything clear and simple to understand. Really happy with the results and aftercare
After having a bad experience in an NHS dentist with my daughter, I brought her here and I was so happy with the full experience. Every one was so friendly and I felt that they actually cared about her teeth. I would definitely recommend coming here.
Victoria McArdleJanuary 2023
I went to Harwood Dental as I wanted to fix my smile with Invisalign. From the first consultation, Vilas and the team were friendly, informative and reliable. I ended up moving cities part way through treatment but the staff were always patient and accommodating in order to ensure my treatment wasn’t compromised. The treatment itself was fast, straightforward and I’m sooooo happy with the result!! Couldn’t recommend Harwood Dental Care enough!! Thanks so much, my teeth have never looked better!! 🙂
Ruth ArmstrongDecember 2022
I’m quite a nervous patient but all the staff are so kind and very reassuring. The dentist (Dipesh) takes time to explain exactly what is going to happen and frequently checks to make sure I’m ok. Would definitely recommend!
K KDecember 2022
Visited Harwood Dental Care for a consultation on Cosmetic Dentistry for my wonky front teeth, I was given a few options which included Invisalign or Veneers. I decided to go for a quickish fix and went with Veneers. I am extremely pleased with the result, Vilas and her team reassured me throughout the treatment. I can smile at everyone 😁🤣. I would highly recommend Harwood Dental Care. Thank you so much Karen 😁
Amelia SusulowskyNovember 2022
I would highly recommend Dipesh and the Harwood Dental Care team. I had Invisalign and whitening treatment and I’m so happy with the results. The results were fast and exceeded my expectations. The team were lovely throughout the process and I felt at ease at every appointment. Thank you!

I approached this dental care for an Invisalign treatment to fix gaps on my teeth and my overbite. From Consultation to throughout all procedures, they were all delivered very professionally and the all staff were very kind and helpful! I recently finished my treatment and I’m more than happy with the results I got from Invisalign.
Big thanks to Dr. Vilas Patel and other staff for the help throughout the way!
Phoebe McqueenJuly 2022
I’ve just completed an Invisalign and whitening treatment and had edge bonding with Vilas. I’ve always been self conscious about the gaps and twisted teeth I had on the top row, and how yellow they are. Within 6 months my teeth have been completely transformed and I couldn’t be happier with them. I feel so much more confident, I can smile with my teeth showing again and not feel self conscious about how yellow they looked. The edge bonding has such a natural finish and I’ve had so many compliments on them.
Dr Vilas Patel is a wonderful dentist and tailors treatments and appointments to your own needs. I highly recommend Harwood Dental Practice if you have any medical or cosmetic concerns, they really consider every small detail and have care and compassion for their patients.
Erika LoweJuly 2022
I went to Harwood Dental Care as i am getting older and wasn’t happy with my smile anymore. My teeth were pretty crooked especially the bottom ones and looked quite yellow. As my own teeth are very healthy I decided to have them straightened and whitened with Invisalign clear aligners. I had a consultation with Dipesh who explained how this was a faster and more hygienic method than traditional braces. Dipesh and the whole team at Harwood Dental Care are extremely professional and so friendly and nothing was too much trouble. I loved how I could always be fitted in for my appointments each month around work/children. I never had to wait. My treatment took approximately 7 months and i cannot tell you how thrilled I am with my new smile😁 It has really boosted my confidence, i honestly can t stop smiling! I would highly recommend the team at Harwood Dental Care, the service there was second to none. A huge Thank you!
Nushin GebelliJune 2022
I recently discovered Harwood Dental Care through a recommendation from a friend. When I arrived, I was met by such a warm, friendly team and felt at ease straight away. I initially went because a very old, permanent retainer that Id had from years previous through other dental care had broken and I could see that my teeth had moved significantly. When I was younger I had very crooked teeth and used to get bullied as a result. My smile is very important to me. Dipesh listened to me and how much this means to me. I instantly felt at ease and stress free. He offered me a variety of options of which I chose to move forward with the Invisalign treatment. Throughout the treatment Dipesh and the team were incredible and so friendly. I looked forward to going to the dentist and felt pampered each time! They really looked after me and the whole process has been stress free. The end results have been nothing short of amazing. I now have my dream smile and I feel incredibly blessed to have found Harwood Dental Care as they are the best dentists Iv ever been to. Their attention to detail, customer service and efficiency are outstanding. Thank you so so much to Dipesh and the team! The absolute best! I highly recommend and I can’t thank them enough! Thank you so much.
Marina PJune 2022
I came to Harwood Dental care in need of a dental implant before my wedding and I’m so happy with the results, the team were great in arranging a prompt consultation with Dipesh where I was given plenty of information and time to consider my options. I chose to follow the recommendations I was given and I’m so pleased with how my teeth look now! Even months since having my teeth whitened I still get lots of compliments and can really tell the difference in photos. The implant fitting itself felt surprisingly quick and easy for such an invasive procedure, during my recovery I had regular check-ups so always felt assured that if I had any problems the dentists would be available to help. The most thorough, professional and friendly service I have ever received! Thank you Dipesh, Jonathan and team
Caz LeesApril 2022
An absolute pleasure from start to finish. Enjoyed every visit for my Invisalign with Dipesh. What an incredible dentist he is! Thanks for my perfect results
Olivia BartlettMarch 2022
I am amazed at how lovely each member of staff you come into contact with at Harwood dental are, I instantly felt I was in safe hands when I met my wonderful dentist Vilas and her assistant Millie, together they have fixed a massive insecurity of mine, and now all I can think is why didn’t I do it sooner! Vilas made me feel so comfortable in her chair, I feel the value for money was incredible and the outcome of my composite bonding is even better than I could’ve imagined my teeth are perfect, but still so natural. Thank you to both Vilas and Millie
ruby mercerDecember 2021
I was so impressed the moment I walked in to reception with a friendly welcome from Kath the receptionist. My dental surgeon, Dr Dipesh, puts you at ease immediately and explains everything. This was the first time in 50 yrs Iv ever felt comfortable in a dentists chair, well reasonably comfortable if you know what I mean!! My treatment included a dental implant amongst other things. What an amazing result! Thank you so much to you and your team Dipesh. Highly recommended. 5*
Judith BoltonMay 2021
My daughter has received wonderful care from Harwood Dental Practice. Due to treatment when she was little, the side effects of the medication was discolouration of her front 2 teeth, leaving her with very low confidence. Using Boutique whitening and then a coating to her front teeth she now has beautiful teeth that she is proud to show off. Thank you
Heather DaviesMarch 2021
After being held down as a youngster at the dentist, my relationship with this profession has been very poor. Previous to visiting Dipesh at Harwood, I had not been to the dentist for over 15 years! My daughter googled dentists sensitive to patients with phobias and following a chat with Dipesh on the phone, she booked me in. From the first visit, I was put at ease by all the staff and Dipesh was sensitive from the moment we met, never condescending and always ready to listen, if not curious how I felt. He NEVER pushed my boundaries and always listened to my fears and found alternative ways to achieve my goals. I am now happy to visit him for check ups and know that he will find a way forward for anything I need in the future. Following treatment, I am much happier with my smile but more importantly, my biggest fear in life is now manageable! Thank you Dipesh and Harwood, you have literally changed my life

elle mulvaneyMarch 2021
Really happy with my teeth straightening & whitening process which I have just completed! Originally my teeth weren’t straight and I hoped to have a straight, white smile – which I have managed to achieve using Invisalign and Boutique whitening. I always enjoyed coming to the dental practice as everyone was friendly and helpful, and now I have finished my treatment I am so happy with the results and would recommend to anyone who hopes to get a straighter and whiter smile! Thanks so much 🙂
Suzanne GriffinFeb 2021
I’ve had a fabulous experience at Harwood Dental Care and had brilliant service from Dipesh. I decided at the start of 2020 to get my teeth straightened using Invisalign followed by Boutique whitening. From start to finish everything was clearly explained, with Dipesh setting my expectation for the end results. It took almost 11 months from start to finish (luckily for me the pandemic didn’t interrupt my treatment) and I am really happy with the results. I can’t stop smiling!!! I’ve attached a couple of photos – one at the start of the treatment and one at the end. Thank you Dipesh and the whole team.
Steve SaundersFeb 2021
I took my daughter here yesterday and the staff are so friendly . In particular Dr Dipesh Patel. Such a nice man and he treated my daughter with care and concern and couldn’t really have asked for better service.
Sophia ChumberAugust 2020
I cannot recommend Dipesh and Harwood Dental Practice highly enough. Despite years of delayed visits to the dentist and neglect to my teeth; Dipesh and his team came to my rescue to ensure I have a gleaming smile for as long as possible. I am still incredibly sad to be back in London and away from their practice. You receive a wonderful welcome, an incredible service and definitely the best giggles amongst the team. Highly recommend this practice. Please sign up if you live nearby.
Amy OwenAugust 2020
Vilas gave me the best smile i could have hoped for! I had the Invisalign treatment followed by whitening and composite bonding to give me the perfect smile. I would recommend Harwood Dental care for all dentistry services!
J PrimeJuly 2020
I have had a dental phobia for many years, going back to a traumatic experience as a child followed by some poor treatment as a teenager after a sports injury. Over the years I tried a few times to visit a dentist but was not able to get through the door. This resulted in me having several problems with my teeth. I finally started looking into my phobia and came across this site and in particular Harwood Dental Care. From the moment of my first telephone contact I can only say that my experience has been great. I was ashamed of the state of my teeth and I was also embarrassed that, as an adult, that I would get emotional even just walking through the door. Dipesh and his team are brilliant, there is no judgement just support and encouragement. Having had the initial assessment I have now started my treatment, I had sedation whilst some fillings were done along with a couple of extractions. The only thing I remember about the treatment was seeing a bright light, I do recall any sounds and felt no pain or discomfort at all. I would say to anyone reading this who has a dental phobia or are nervous about visiting a dentist that they should contact Harwood Dental Care. I am so relieved that finally I have started to deal with my phobia, I have further treatment planned and will require sedation but I am already feeling so much better, physically and mentally. Accepting I had an issue was the first step but I would not have been able to progress if it had not been for the help, support and understanding that I have received from Dipesh and his amazing team – thank you so much!

Hannah VipondJuly 2020
Vilas was amazing! I initially visited Harwood Dental Care unhappy with the crookedness and unevenness of my teeth. The treatment I received was Invisalign, boutique whitening and composite bonding – this completely changed my outlook on my teeth, I’m no longer self conscious and absolutely love my new smile! My overall experience at Harwood Dental Care couldn’t be faulted, even throughout the Covid-19 pandemic. Every visit I was made to feel calm, the team were professional and caring. I chose Harwood Dental Care after being recommended by a friend, and I will definitely go on to recommend to my friends too.
Becky WilsonApril 2019
Great place, very welcoming and friendly, make you feel completely comfortable and at ease and looks a very clean and hygienic place. Highly recommended.

Great friendly service, brought back my white smile through teeth whitening, wouldn’t use anyone else now
Excellent serviceMay 2019
I attended the practice with my three children for examination appointments. All the staff are welcoming and professional and gave import…
Alan BarnesMay 2019
Yet again Harwood Dental Care provide me with exceptional service within just an hour of contacting them. I cannot stress enough that this practice is the best Health Care I have ever experienced with Professional and caring staff putting their Patients first. Cannot recommend more highly.
Felicity DayFebruary 2019
I am one of those nervous patients. Like most people I fear the dentist. I decided to go private because I was unhappy with my teeth and desperately wanted them fixing. I was warmly welcomed and Dr Patel sat and listened to what I wanted. I explained I was a nervous patient and he was so kind and nothing was too much trouble and my consultation wasn’t rushed. Within a few weeks I had arranged for a long appointment (4 hours ) to get all my teeth cleaned, filled and looking wonderful. Once again the staff were lovely. From the lady at reception, the poor dental nurse Emma who had to put up with me and of course Dr Patel. Everything was at my pace and it was all very calm. I am so happy with my teeth now they honestly look amazing! I would 100% reccomend Dr Patel and his amazing staff!
Excellent dental surgeryMarch 2019
I have been a patient here all my life and been very impressed with the transformation of the surgery. I had no problems before but two particular dentists are brilliant. Very kind and caring. All the team are very smart and professional.The surgery is very modern and clean. Cannot fault any aspects of the care I have received here. Would highly recommend this dental surgery.
Layken RamsayApril 2019
I had braces here and the dentist dipesh was fantastic. There a lovely bunch even the receptionists, they go above and beyond to help. Would definitely recommend
Andy PerrettMay 2019
I am getting married in July this year and I had been deliberating for ages about getting my teeth done before the wedding. I not sure what was putting me off, perhaps the cost or just the idea of having a brace on for a long time with lots of social events already planned. I thought I had left it too late to get my teeth sorted in time for the wedding – there was only 12 months to go. I went for my initial consultation in July last year and met Vilas who advised me on everything I needed to know. After this consultation, I had no doubts I wanted to do it. By the end of August the brace was on and amazingly, the middle of February the brace was off again! I couldn’t believe the progress and how quick it was. We’re now in May, well in advance of the wedding in July and I have already finished my whitening, had my final appointment and my teeth are looking perfect for the big day!! I want to say a huge thankyou to Vilas for her expertise. She, and the whole team at Harwood Dental are very friendly. I hadn’t been to a dentist since before I left for uni, over 10 years ago, so at first I was a bit nervous about getting my teeth looked at, almost a little embarrassed. But every appointment I was made to feel comfortable and relaxed. I went for the bracket rather than invisilign and even the appointments to fit and remove the brace were so easy. It took about a week to get used to the brace being on but I generally experienced no pain or discomfort and the results are amazing. I feel so much more confident and already can’t wait to see my wedding photos ????????????! I would certainly recommend Harwood Dental Care and thankyou again!
Tooth Hurts is always a good time to go! 🙂 Great facilities. Great people. Would recommend to everyone.
Mike CorristineMarch 2019
Excellent service by Professional People, investing in the very latest technology, from instant photos of problem areas thrown on a large screen monitor showing exactly what is being recommended to the latest 3D scanner so if like me you suffer from a very sensitive gab reflex big bulky moulds for caps bridges etc are a thing of the past, made to feel welcome and at ease from the moment you enter, would highly recommend.
Jade HJanuary 2019
After feeling self conscious about my teeth for years I finally decided to seek treatment. Harwood Dental Care was recommended to me and I have been really pleased with my treatment from start to finish. My teeth are now perfectly straight! Dipesh, and all of the staff at Harwood are professional and friendly and the clinic is spotlessly clean. I wouldn’t hesitate to recommend them to anyone else!
Five stars all round! My children have been attending Harwood Dental Care in Bolton for a number of years now. Each appointment we have attended, I have always found the Dentist Surgery to firstly be spotless; Reception is always extremely well kept and very clean. Receptionists themselves are always welcoming and polite. Our particular dentist that we attend and my children are registered with is genuinely one of the best dentists I have ever known. He is always so friendly and reassuring to my children, he truly is wonderful at his job and completely goes the extra mile in talking to them and making their experience and time there a fun and positive one! We honestly could not recommend this Dentist Surgery (and the team there!) enough.
Lisa McdonaldSeptember 2018
Don’t usually leave reviews but felt it was vital to do so for Harwood dental care. After many years of avoiding the dentist due to real phobia to everything to do with dental work I needed to see a dentist. I searched for a surgery that could deal with phobic patients and offer sedation. I found them and never looked back. I have been treated so well the time and effort all the team have offered me has been invaluable. There patience and caring attitude towards me has reduced my anxiety so much. I required sedation for even a teeth clean I was that scared, I was never judged by the team for being so anxious and scared and that was so important to me. I trust the team and now feel less anxious when visiting. If you are anxious/phobic this is the surgery to visit without a doubt. Thanks to all the team. Special thanks to Cath, Jessica, Lisa, Victoria, Vicky. Even bigger thanks to Vilas ( My Dentist )

My daughter has recently had braces fitted and there wasnt a single topic that was not covered in the consult . once treatment began it was so quick and got her braces fitted in no time . we are now 6 weeks into braces and what a difference . Dipesh and the girls are fantastic and would highly recommend
Reg RossMarch 2019
I started my journey at Harwood dental care 6 months ago, after not attending a dentist for 4years, due to anxiety of being in pain and having to be numbed bad past experiences, I spoke with Dipesh and instantly felt as ease, and excited to get going on fixing my smile, I wanted all new veneers and he managed to convince me round to allowing him to do his thing in hope I’d be happy in my own smile by the end, and he did just that, the difference is unreal not only in my teeth but my train of thought too, I used to not sleep before appointments, avoid them, and have to be driven to and from and accompanied, at Harwood dental care I get up and go myself with not a worry in sight, and that’s been the biggest outcome my parents could have wished for, I’m now a member and can’t wait to be cared for by such a friendly, clean, well organised dentist for the rest of my life. You really do get what you pay for here no corners cut 5 star service.
Excellent dental practice Our family have been patients here for a couple of years now. The clinical care is very good in my opinion. Everything has always been clearly explained, including the reasons, risks and benefits of any procedures I have had done. The practice works to give our children a positive experience and as a result they are always happy to go to their appointments. The admin staff are well organised, and the whole team are very pleasant. Highly recommended!
Becca McCluskeyJuly 2018
I have recently had braces with harwood dental. I am so happy with my end result and my overall experience at the dentist. Thank you very much
Neil RMarch 2019
Like many whom reluctantly visit the dentist, I was very nervous and wanted to get it over and done with asap. Dr Patel advised me of his diagnoses and recommended a course of action. He answered my questions and alleviated my concerns about the procedure. I felt much more comfortable returning for the treatment and the procedure itself was entirely painless and comfortable. The worst part was my phone going off mid procedure! I had expected my tooth to be far worse and naturally feared a root-canal however it was avoided thanks to Patel’s amazing efforts fixing the deep difficult parts of my bad tooth! I cannot say how relieved and grateful I am to his efforts. 5/5 would recommend and visit again.
Kasia ZmudzkaApril 2018

Sonia CrosbyJune 2015

Sue SmithApril 2017
All the staff at the surgery are professional, informative and polite. The actual surgery premises have been fully refurbished and are second to none. I would strongly recommend the surgery, first class!
Andrea PowerJanuary 2019
I have been a patient of Harwood Dental Care for a couple of years now after coming highly recommended by friends and colleagues. All staff are professional and friendly. Dental visits are quite anxiety provoking for me but these anxieties are eased as soon as I walk through the door to be greeted (usually by Kath). I have had extensive dental work carried out by Dipesh and his colleagues and have always been treated with the utmost professionalism. All treatment plans are fully discussed with me and this makes me feel part of the decision making process. The practice is always spotlessly clean. Can’t recommend this team highly enough. WELL DONE! I now have a lovely bright smile again, Thanks guys.
Dawn SikorskiMay 2017
Very modern with all the latest equipment. Both dentists are very friendly and gentle, i used to be terrified of having any treatment done but not anymore.

Great dentists with an excellent manner for patients with special needs or other difficulties. If you need a dentist who can look after you as well as your teeth this is an excellent choice.
Joan LonsdaleSeptember 2016
I am very happy with the dental care received at Harwood Dental Care whilst having been a patient under this Management…..sympathetic and very professional and FREE samples of toothpaste, what more could you ask!!!
Jonathan HarrisOctober 2018
I had clear braces on for about 8 months that transformed my smile from something I was growing increasingly uncomfortable about to one I am happy to show off. I had them whitened too, and they have since received quite a few compliments! Dipesh is a very knowledgable and personable dentist. I had a very pleasurable experience in all of my appointments and am incredibly happy with the end result. If you are looking for a dentist, or to fix crooked/crowded teeth – I couldn’t recommend Hardwood Dental Care enough.
Mark HackettNovember 2016
Excellent, and I’m no fan of dentists, but professional courteous, pleasant, clean, made to feel at ease, would definitely recommend.
I’m glad I made the choice to go with Harwood Dental Care for my treatment, the team are always very friendly and welcoming on each visit. Dipesh was always available to answer any questions and was excellent at talking me through the steps of the treatment. I couldn’t recommend highly enough!
Rachel GreenhalghFebruary 2019
July 2018 I went to Harwood Dental Care for a root canal on my front tooth and to have 2 new crowns on both front teeth, leading up to this I hadn’t been to a dentist in 10 years due to bad experiences again and again. Every appointment I had here I felt comfortable and less anxious each time I had to go back. I am more than ecstatic about my new smile, thank you to Vilas and all her team for my new found confidence, you really are amazing!
Ruth ShawJune 2018
A front tooth broke off at 5.30pm yesterday. By 10.30 am today it had been mended! What superb personal service. Thankyou.
