Brilliant Dental Practice
Highly recommend Dimitri Mantazis and all the staff
So pleased with all the work I have had... done. It was a long haul but the patience and work that was done has been amazing, and I never once felt a thing. Best dentist ever.read more
I suffered a broken tooth whilst visiting Brighton and the practice managed to squeeze me in last minute.
I suffer... hugely with dental anxiety and Dimitri made me feel so relaxed. There was even a TV on the ceiling for me to watch and I was asked to pick something that I liked to watch.
I am considering coming back to him to have further treatment! Huge thanks to all staff for being so understandable of my nerves.read more
Not a huge fan of going to the dentist but all the staff were very friendly and put me at ease. Dimitri is an excellent... dentist with a calming nature, I had 3 fairly large fillings done and had no pain whatsoever when the anesthetic wore off. I could not recommend Hove Dental Clinic enough.read more
I spent 10 years travelling hundreds of miles to the dentist I saw as a kid because I was so nervous about going, but... then I found Jen and Dimitri! They are so good at making you feel at ease, are total experts, and are lovely people as well. I can't recommend them enough.read more
I had a fantastic experience at Hove Dental Clinic last week. Dimitri made me feel very relaxed and gave me fantastic... advice. My teeth now look better than I could have imagined! Thank you so much.read more
Dimitri Mantazis has been our family dentist for 13 years, hes a superb dentist I have always been extremely happy... with his work and hes been amazing with my boys with his calming personality.
Always friendly always polite.
We wouldn't dream of going anywhere else.
I cannot recommend him and his lovely team highly enough!read more
I recommend Hove Dental Clinic, Last week I saw Dimitri when he removed a difficult Crown. He explained his planned... procedure and reassured me that if at any point I wanted him to stop I was to raise my left arm. I've never been told that by a Dentist before! He made me feel very calm and relaxed.
I also highly recommend Jen Lynch the Hygenist.
I was a VERY nervous patient and attended (on recommendation) this practice a few years ago. Dimitri completely wowed... me! He his caring, empathetic and very kind. If you are a nervous patient please go to him.
I am ashamed to admit that I rarely visited a dentist after some awful experiences as a child and I paid the price in having to have a lot of work done and a few gum issues. However I now go regularly for hygiene and check-up's. They never do anything that is unnecessary and always explain everything in straight forward terms. Their work is exemplary. Jenny (hygienist) is equally amazing. I used to have child's numbing gel just for a check-up - that's how bad things were for me! Now I can zone out in the chair and can honestly say I have NEVER been uncomfortable, or worried whilst in their hands. I cannot recommend this team enough. From reception to chair they are wonderful. I travel 40 miles to see them from Fairlight in East Sussex and will continue to do so.read more
I am very impressed by not only the skills and expertise of Dimitri but also his superb judgement and delivery. I’ve... had a 12 year problem with a molar that had, at times, caused me excruciating pain but mostly a feeling of being unwell. Having researched the best dentist in Brighton, Dimitri talked through my options and we decided that I should opt for extraction. The extraction was very complex but I felt very little discomfort during the lengthy operation. Aftercare guidance was optimal and follow up timed well. I am very happy to have 1) decided to approach Dimitri and 2) opt for the extractionread more
I needed to find a new dentist and after a year of searching and visiting various dental practices, I decided to join... this clinic. Since that moment I have never looked back and my recent crown filling, excellently carried out to a very high standard by Dimitri, just proved to me I had made the best choice. Dimitri is a great communicator and takes time to explain every procedure in great detail which is most reassuring. Dimitri and the entire team show true professionalism in their work, and at the same time treat me with care, kindness and respect. The modern building, together with the most up to date, high tech equipment (especially those calming blue/orange, overhead lights, TV, strawberry, mint or cinnamon flavour mouthwashes) only adds to a truely amazing dental experience. Highly recommended.read more
Dimitris has been looking after my teeth for more than a decade and I've grown to trust and value both his advice and... treatment over that time. He is patient, with a calm, confidence-inspiring professional manner – and he has incredibly soft skills: you can hardly feel the needle (!!) I'd recommend the practice without hesitation.read more
Just over 6 months ago, Dimitri successfully fixed a problem which another dentist had been unable to solve, despite... two attempts to do so. I am completely pleased with the result. I have just had my first 6-monthly check-up with him and was pleased that the review of the state of my teeth was very thorough. Helpful advice was provided concerning how to keep my teeth in good condition and what I might expect in terms of problems as time moves on.read more
A fantastic experience (yes this is possible at a dentist). I needed urgent treatment as I was in pain and away from... home. The professionals here saw me within an hour on a Saturday. My problem was successfully resolved in a most professional and painless manner. Outstanding and thank you.read more
I am really needle phobic and having only just joined the practice hadn’t yet gotten to know any of the staff. The... thought of having to have 3 fillings a few weeks ago was filling me with dread to the point where I hadn’t slept properly for a nearly a week beforehand.
However Dr Dimitri and his lovely nurse Hayley were so gentle, kind and reassuring that I shouldn’t have worried. The numbing gel beforehand and Dimitri’s administration meant I barely felt the injections at all, for which I am so grateful. And after that, everything else was a breeze. I completely trust them now and am glad to be a patient of this practice where I know I will be taken care of.
I also had an appointment with Jen the hygienist last night. She was so gentle, warm and friendly and it was a completely different experience to the hygeinist I had always seen previously. I never realised that a trip to the hygeinist could be so comfortable! I feel very lucky to have found this practice!read more
Diemetris took great care and time to explain every detail. Extremely professional and person centred.
I highly... recommend his services. Jenny was equally professional and each visit is relaxed and productive.
My daughter and her family (my granddaughters) have joined here to and have found the experience a good one.
Well done to the whole team and thankyou for keeping a smile on my face that I am proud of.read more
Dr Mantazis and his team are kind, caring an professional. Having had some very bad experiences in the past with poor... dentistry it was truly a pleasure to be treated by this centre of excellence.read more
I have been in the care of Dimitri and Jen for over five years following a friend's recommendation when I was looking... for a good dentist. I have since enjoyed dental care and treatment of the highest quality.
Following several painless, very necessary crowns and a root canal treatment, I have become increasingly impressed with the very high standard of Dimitri's work (ably assisted by Hayley) and his level of commitment to the highest levels of dental care. He is also a very good listener, has a relaxed reassuring manner and always takes time to discuss and explain.
Jen is a marvellous hygienist who again provides superior treatment and complements Dimitri's side of the practice perfectly.
I have complete confidence in Dimitri, Jen and the team at Hove Dental Clinic and recommend without hesitation.read more
Fantastic - I've been coming to Hove Dental Clinic for over a year now for check ups and more. It's always been a... straight forward easy going experience, Dimitri the Dentist and Jenny the Hygienist are both fantastic along with the other staff at the practice, always making me feel at ease.read more
This is an outstanding dental practice. The whole team are professional and warm, from reception through treatment.... Most importantly Dimitri Mantzis is a brilliant dentist. I am really happy to have discovered this place.read more
So around 3 months ago i researched over 30 different dentists in the whole of sussex after being so petrified of the... dentist i hadnt been for nearly 5 years i decided to pluck up the courage and go to see dimitri at hove dental clinic. From day 1 of walking through the door i havent felt anything like i did at many other practices i have been to previously. My fears have gone completely and i wouldnt recommend it highly enough! Dimitri and Hayley have changed not only the way i feel about going to the dentist but how much more confident i am with my smile. When i went i knew the condition of my teeth and gums were critical i pulled my own teeth out i had broken teeth, DIY fillings etc and couldnt bare to smile at anything. I have attached a photo of day 1 to now. All i can say is they shudnt be called dentists maybe magicians! For anyone who is thinking about using Hove Dental Clinic i would say dont think twice dont wait around its the perfect place for anyone with or without the fear of going. 5*** .... here is my picture to show you all just the difference!read more
