Missed Appointments

Please try to arrive on time for your appointment, or a few minutes early if it is your first visit to us so that you have time to fill in the necessary forms.

As a courtesy, we attempt to remind our patients of appointments by email and by text.   If we are not able to contact you, it is still your responsibility to attend the appointment and our missed appointment policy will still apply. Please ensure that you advise us of any change in your contact details.

Patient testimonials

“It is always a pleasure to visit the surgery here! Kind staff, Gentle dentists!

Mrs. B, Otford

“Having been terrified of dentists I came here in 1979 bringing my family along too.  They have always been friendly but relaxed in manner whilst being very professional.  I wouldn’t want to have to go anywhere else as I have complete trust in their judgement.  Hoping they will continue for many years!”

Anonymous

“In my experience, McKenzie’s practice epitomises everything that is good about a Dental Surgery.  It is for that reason that I have now been a patient with them for over 30 years.  What better recommendation could there be?

The Staff involved with my care are a delight.  They are extremely professional but also very friendly & caring.  In all honesty, I cannot profess to ever enjoying a visit to the dentist but because I am treated with the utmost consideration, always put at my ease and my individual needs understood I am assured that the experience is the best I can possibly hope for.

The overwhelming feeling at this practice is of a large family unit rather that an impersonal business with everyone respecting and caring for each other as well as for patients.  I would have no hesitation whatsoever in recommending anyone to this surgery.  Treatment of the highest possible standard is guaranteed”

Julie, Paddock Wood
