“Would Happily Talk To Anyone About My Experience If It Helps”

Having always been petrified of the dentist and requiring extensive dental work … I did my research and for me discovered the best dentist in the world Mr Nourish.

He restored my faith in dentistry as all through this long process he promised me it wouldn’t hurt and it hasn’t and we’ve also injected , pardon the pun, humour into the appointments that may seem strange but it helped me to remain calm.

Also mustn’t forget the nursing and reception staff they are always smiling, happy to chat and brilliant at putting patients at ease. I recommend this surgery and would happily talk to anyone about my experience if it helps them through the door as that’s the hardest step, once in, you’ve got all the support you will ever need.

“Totally Pain Free”

The most caring and considerate Dentist with outstanding quality work!

As someone with a huge phobia of needles, I had put the dentist off for too many years since my last visit. Which meant lots of work was due to fix multiple cavities and a broken tooth. Mr Nourish was incredibly understanding of my problems, he made the experience very relaxed and totally pain free!

All my repair work is completely natural looking and unnoticeable!

Advanced Dental Care are the only Dentist I would choose now!

Highly recommended!!! Especially if you have a phobia of needles or the dentist chair.

~Will H-J

“Everything As Pain Free As Possible”

Fantastic practice. All the staff are very friendly, helpful and patient. Always happy to put my mind at ease if I have any questions after a treatment, which means a lot as I’m a worrier! I’ve always been afraid of the dentist and avoided going for years due to a bad experience as a kid, but thanks to the team I always feel relaxed and safe. And of course, the fact that they make everything as pain free as possible helps 🙂

Thanks for always making it a pleasant experience!

~Reanne Ebley

“They Don’t Judge You”

What a journey it’s been to get that SMILE! From day 1 I’ve felt welcomed and at ease with all the staff- they are friendly and they don’t judge you! Today I had my braces off and I am really happy with the outcome, I am now on the last leg of this experience! I can’t thank the staff enough! Definitely recommend 😁

~Rachel Scaccia

“Without Any Pain Whatsoever”

As pleasant an experience as it’s possible to have at the dentist’s. Lately I’ve even had small fillings and a crown without injections and without any pain whatsoever. I never knew such a thing was possible! It fills me with confidence about visiting the dentist, and is a great incentive to take care of small issues before they become big ones. Highly recommend this friendly and efficient practice.

~Belinda Bauer

“Pain Free Experience”

The staff are so friendly and approachable. They are all absolutely amazing with young children. Also, I had my first filling today and it was a pain free experience. Fantastic experience overall.

~Lauren Goffin

“I Can Now Finally Smile With Confidence & Actually Show Teeth In Photos”

Last year I decided to get braces as I was always unhappy about my teeth and it was the best decision EVER 😊 Andy and his team really made the whole experience less painful and scary! You hear all horror stories about visiting the dentist but at Advance Dental Care you won’t get that as everyone is super friendly & caring. The atmosphere is really relaxed which meant that any worries which I had were all taken away!

I had my braces taken off last October & I haven’t stopped showing them off 😊 I can now finally smile with confidence & actually show teeth in photos!

Thank you, Advance Dental Care, for making visits to the dentist enjoyable 😊

~Mandy Wong

“Andy Nourish Exceeded Expectations”

Excellent practice in every way. I received treatment and advice following an accident which left my front teeth broken and displaced. Andy Nourish exceeded expectations in his support and treatment.

All dental work I’ve received has been carried out with great expertise and care, and time has been taken to thoroughly discuss the next steps.

Communication has been excellent, appointments prompt and the reception team are very warm and welcoming.  Five stars well deserved – highly recommended!

~Vicky Featherstone

“You Feel Like A Person Not Just Another Patient”

A very friendly service where you feel like a person not just another patient.  Appointment reminders are sent via a text and phone call so there isn’t any last-minute panicking of missing an appointment. Late appointments are available which suit me better around my work.

Loving the results from my brace after only a few months they were off.

Would highly recommend advance dental!

~Donna Shire

“Helpful Staff In A Welcoming Environment”

Fabulous Experience (never thought I would say that about a visit to the Dentist). Very friendly and helpful staff in a welcoming environment. Had TWO root fillings and a new crown CAD designed and made all within an hour and DIDN’T feel a thing – Big thanks to the Team.

~Brian Hortop

“Make You Feel Like Part Of The Family”

I went to see Dr Nourish after years of invisalign with my original dentist and being terribly unhappy with the end results. Dr Nourish was very knowledgeable and discussed my requirements and the options available to me.

My original dentist had told me further work on my smile was no longer possible and I was to live with it as terrible as it was. Dr Nourish reassured me this wasn’t the case and after 6 months of braces and his calm and caring dentistry I am happy with the end results.

The rest of the staff at the surgery are so amazing and friendly and make you feel like part of the family. I have already recommended this surgery and will carry on recommending them!!!! Xxx

~Fay McCaw

“The Aftercare Was Second To None”

Fantastic service, I highly recommend Andy and his team.  I had braces fitted as painless as they could be, the aftercare was second to none. Really pleased with the results and will have all further dental work carried out at this surgery, Exceptional !! x

~Ann Cheeseman

“Attentive, Helpful And Very Competent”

I had over 6-month treatment in this practice and I am very lucky to have such a fantastic specialist! Attentive, helpful and very competent. Dr Nourish and Dr Lock provide an extremely high standard of dental treatment and care!

The treatment I have received has been of an excellent standard. I have always been treated with dignity and respect, given ongoing information about procedures and asked about my comfort during the procedures.

Also, I’d like to mention a great service, providing by reception team, and the clinical staff they all are always polite, helpful and welcoming!

Highly recommended. Thank you again

~Julija Novikova

“Have So Much Self Confidence Now”

Such an amazing practice, staff are very helpful and friendly and go out of their way to make you feel comfortable, never been happier with my smile and have so much self-confidence now! Couldn’t recommend them enough, thank you!

~Cara Taylor

“I Look Forward To Seeing The Dentist Now”

After 38 years of using my family dentist I wondered if it could be done better. After searching and finding this one I have been completely overwhelmed by the differences in the experiences of visiting the dentist. They just can’t do enough for you and the staff are so happy and welcoming.

They sincerely do give you what you want and provide a plan for you to follow with complete confidence and transparency to ensure your mouth stays wide open in all your photos with a gob of gnashers to be proud of once again! if like me you neglected and abused dental hygiene for too long and became embarrassed of your teeth.

I look forward to seeing the dentist now…can’t recommend them highly enough. Minimum discomfort and maximum service. I will be seeing them for ever more.

~Nathan Davies

“Amazing Pain Free Treatment”

First class service. Amazing pain free treatment. I was so impressed and so very grateful that I have found a brilliant dentist and dental staff. A very warm welcome is given from the minute you enter the dentist’s surgery and carries on throughout your stay. Thank you to Andrew and team.

~Ruth Ellis

“The Treatment Was All Pain Free”

Fantastic dentist, all the staff are friendly and professional. I never felt rushed Andy was happy to answer all questions/concerns. The treatment was all pain free. I would definitely recommend this dental practice.

~Louise Cuddihy

“Pain Free And Comfortable”

I’ve been a patient at the practice for around six years and consider myself as a regular, I needed a lot of work when I first became a patient and unfortunately have needed a lot of dental work in the six years I’ve been a patient at Advance dental practice. Gareth has looked after me the last few years but I’ve also been seen by Andrew for some specialist work (Snoring Device).

Overall my experience has been fantastic, let’s face it nobody like going to the dentist but as I’ve learnt the hard way it’s a key part of looking after your health and overall wellbeing. Having bad teeth causes so much pain, confidence issues and can really effect much more than just your smile.

My experience has always been first class, the building is really modern and clean and well presented. The waiting room has a well-stocked selection of magazines that are all current and updated monthly (no more 1990’s national geographic or kindly donated woman’s weekly). There is always a fresh covering of appropriate info on the walls to let you know what current deals are on cosmetic treatment and informative notices on all manner of dental related matters. The ladies on reception are friendly and efficient and always welcome you.

In terms of the treatment I’ve had a few dentists in my life and my experience has varied from horrific to just ok until I became a patient at Advance. I’ve never struggled to get an appointment within a reasonable amount of time and always been really impressed with how quick they have squeezed me in If I had a problem that needed urgent attention.

The treatment has always been talked through by Gareth with any options presented to me clearly and in a way, that allows me sight of all the pros and cons as well as the costs. Gareth is really friendly and considers the patient at all stages of treatment, he constantly checks that your pain free and comfortable and manages your expectations through the treatment. The nurses are all lovely and chatty and the whole team seem to really get on well to create a relaxed friendly environment that feels more like you’re in a health club or spa than a dentist!

So from me it’s a big big thumbs up!

~Stuart Ornek

“Impressed By The Staff At Advance”

Having had the misfortune to require some unexpected dental treatment this week, I was impressed by the staff at Advance. Not being a great lover of “The Dentist” I was looked after by Diane and Sarah who were both professional and friendly in attending to my needs. I can’t recommend them highly enough. Thanks all.

~Adrian Lock

“I Am Delighted With The Results”

My experience has been excellent from my initial consultation and through my treatment plan. I am delighted with the results so far and would highly recommend Andy and his team, exceptional service 😄

~Jacqueline George

“If You’ve Not 100% Happy With Your Smile – Andy And Team Will Sort You Out”

I’ve been a patient at Advanced Dental Care for about 4 years. They have been fantastic over the years, good availability of appointments and text reminders. I’m writing this review because for the last 19 months, I had a brace fitted. I was never offered this as a child and have never been 100% happy with my smile.

I spoke to Andy about it and we discussed options. 19 months later, the braces are off and I’m thrilled with the result. It was a big commitment, both financially and on my time, but I was offered various payment methods and choose an interest free monthly payment option to spread the cost. They open early and I was always able to get an appointment first thing so I could get to work on time.

I’ve moved to the other side of Cardiff 2 years ago but still travel to Barry to attend this practice – I cannot speak highly enough of the whole team.

If you’ve not 100% happy with your smile – Andy and team will sort you out!

~Edwina O’Hart

“My New Found Confidence”

For the past twenty months I’ve worn fixed braces, during this time I’ve received the most wonderful care from all the team at the Advance Dental and Orthodontic Practice.  The whole experience has been confidence inspiring, the results are more than I dared to hope for and for the first time in 30 years I have a beautiful smile that I’m proud to show off.

The Team at Advance Dental Care more than live up to the promises they make to their patients. I never felt rushed, judged or criticised during my appointments.  They were always happy to answer my questions and gave me information at a pace I could manage.

At the end of this course of treatment I found myself thinking that I was going to miss my monthly appointments!  As a ‘nervous’ patient I would never have considered this a possibility before I joined this practice.

So, a Very Big Thank You to all the team at Advance Dental Care for my new smile, my new found confidence and an unexpected but most welcome collateral benefit – I’ve managed to lose those stubborn pounds I’ve been trying to shift for years 🙂

~Natalie Schell

“Amazing And So Happy To Have My Mouth Back”

I have today completed my treatment with Andrew Nourish when my mini implant assisted denture was fitted.  Amazing and so happy to have “my mouth back”.  No restrictive plate and the feeling that this is the closest thing you will get to having your own teeth back.

Andrew Nourish is friendly, easy to talk to, and has made this whole experience very easy.  Would recommend to anyone with dentures as my confidence today

has increased as I now no longer must worry about my dentures slipping and are so looking forward to eating things that I had to cut out of my diet because my conventional dentures could not cope with the hardness of certain foods.

~Review left by the user – pg1144

“Communication Was Outstanding”

These guys are top notch. Straight away they make you feel at ease and are genuine with their care. Communication was outstanding as was the treatment received. Highly recommended!

~Dave Passey

“I Went Away Feeling Incredibly”

What a brilliant experience. I had a crown put in. No horrible things in my mouth, it was made then and there, and I went away feeling incredibly well looked after.

Thank you, all of you

~Mark Stone

“I No Longer Worry About The Dentist”

After being terrified of dentists since I was little I went to Highlight Park and had Gareth as my dentist and he’s been fantastic. Very calming and explains everything to you. I no longer worry about the dentist at all now, and wouldn’t go anywhere else.

~Rhian Evans

“I Have Never Been So At Ease In A Dentist Chair”

I would not hesitate in recommending the team. So friendly, they all make you feel welcome, I have never been so at ease in a dentist chair and that say something. Thank you, guys.

Brilliant experience on both visits to the practice. Staff could not be more welcoming. Looking forward to getting my treatment finished!

~Richard Turner


My name is Wendy Walker – I was very very scared of the Dentist. I made the appointment because my son is getting married. I was made at ease by the Receptionists, the Dentist, Andrew, and the Dental Nurse were wonderful – weren´t judgemental with my horrid teeth. Each appointment has been enjoyable. I had my teeth out with no pain at all; even the injection was pain free. I would recommend this Dentist to everyone.

 ~W.Walker from Barry


For the whole team at Advance Dental Care, a very festive Thank you for one of the best Christmas presents I’ve ever had – Braces! I look forward to seeing you in the New Year p>

 ~Natalie Scholl


My experience was excellent for explanation and treatment, especially for my cold sensitive teeth.

~John Abrams


Having a lovely holiday, glad to say you have made a wonderful job of my plate.  No discomfort, many thanks for fitting me in at such short notice.

~R Roberts


I have always wanted a beautiful white smile, never thought it was possible, but I was proven wrong.  I’d recommend anyone looking for that beautiful smile to Advance Dental Care.  Andrew and the team have been fab and changed my life 🙂

 ~Patient from Barry


To Gareth,Thanks very much for making me lose my fear of the dentist, P.S. If you leave, I’m following.



The care you receive is exceptionalIt was a long time before I plucked up the courage to go to the dentist, but I’m so glad I did.  The care you receive is exceptional and everyone is so lovely. 

You’re made to feel very welcome and put at ease.  The results are amazing and I would definitely recommend Andrew and staff to everyone, especially if you haven’t been for some time and are very nervous like me.  Go for it.

~Olwen Harrington


I have found my smile again. For Over 40 years I did not smile properly as I was embarrassed about my crocked, yellow  front teeth.

After having the 6 front teeth crowned, I go around smiling at everyone.

The professionalism I encountered from the practice and staff was outstanding and I would fully recommend both the practice and the treatment.

~Marilyn McLucas from Cardiff


 To Staff at Advance Dental Practice – Many thanks for your kind attention over the last few weeks, P.S. Have a good Christmas! 

~Sylvia Pemberton


In the past I had negative experiences at the dentist. Andy changed all that! Previously anaesthetics hadn’t worked 100% thus causing anxiety!  Today I had a filling with Andy and didn’t feel a thing.  Can’t fault that!



To Andy and the team, it’s appreciated more than you know! Thank you for being so accommodating over the years, you’ve made this a very pleasant experience! Love



I had a deep root canal done and can’t believe how pain free the whole thing was. After having bad experiences in the past it’s made me nervous about coming to the dentist, but I am so happy I’ve come here as the whole experience has been nerve and pain free especially the injection!

 ~Jade Jones


My two fab dentists, U Star, thank you for my lush teeth, can’t wait for the from

~Carolyn Louise


I first came to have my teeth sorted out and I immediately felt at ease with the staff and Andy. The whole process has been better than I could have ever imagined, it was quick and easy.

The reception staff are so friendly and so helpful, I always got an appointment to suit the hours of my job.

The end result is amazing, so pleased, can’t stop smiling all day! I would recommend the dentist for your treatment, it’s the best place to come. Thanks girls.

~Jaqueline from Cardiff


I was feeling quite apprehensive this morning attending the surgery, but I found it to be the most efficient, quick and painless experience I have so far had for dental problems. Dr Andrew, thank you very much for your caring and reassuring approach.

 ~Parween Sethi


After a previous bad experience and subsequently avoiding the dentist for over 10 years I decided that I needed to get my teeth looked at and corrected.

All the staff have been incredible, especially Andy. Andy fitted braces which were surprisingly PAIN FREE and worked really quickly.

I’m thrilled with the result and my teeth are now perfect thanks to Andy and the team.

 ~Kelli Winter


I have always been paranoid about my teeth and would never show them when smiling.  The thought of having braces terrified me, but I am so glad I did.  Andy always made me feel comfortable and supported me throughout the treatment, letting me know exactly what he was doing and always gave me the opportunity to ask questions. 

The staff at Advance Dental Care are so friendly and welcoming.  For the first time in my life I actually looked forward to dentist appointments.  Many people didn’t even notice I had braces and the length of time they were on flew by!

I am so happy with the results and best dental treatment I’ve had!

 ~Chloe Hughes from Barry


Andrea and all the team at Advanced Dental Care, thank you all for the care and attention you have provided throughout my treatment. It is great to be able to smile again with confidence and be able to eat steak. Once again, thank you.

 ~Graham Benson


I can’t thank you enough for your caring the other morning. Bottle of wine for you and just some biscuits for the others. Please thank the dentist again for me, best regards,

~Lyn Walker 


Went to see various other orthodontists with regards to having a brace and within a few minutes of my first consultation with Andrew I knew I wanted to have my teeth perfected here.

All the staff are friendly and extremely helpful. My brace itself only took just over 6 months and I’m more than pleased with the results.


“I was dental phobic before I came to Advance and had avoided treatment for years. They put me at my ease immediately and now my visits hold no fear at all. An excellent, friendly and efficient practice.”

 ~Janet Herd


I have had a phobia relating to the dentist for over 30 years. Gareth gave me the best experience I have ever had.

I’m still nervous but due to his empathy and communication skills, I won’t be afraid next time. My trust in him is building.

What a true asset to your practice.

~Claire Adams from Barry


I have experience of many dental practices and this is by far the best. Housed in modern building, from reception to dentistry, the staff have been excellent amicable, good humoured and caring. I am moving area and I am sure will have difficulty finding a practice as good as this.

 ~David Spray 


After a horrendous experience in another dental practice with ill-fitting veneers, Advance Dental Care well and truly saved me!

Fantastic support throughout from all staff and brilliant results with newly fitted crowns.

Andy has greatly improved the health of my gums and given me the Hollywood smile I craved.

Thanks again.

~Claire McKinty from Cardiff


I have always been paranoid about my teeth and would never show them when smiling. The thought of having braces terrified me, but I am so glad I did.

 ~Chloe Hughes,  Barry 


Today I just had my upper back tooth taken out. I couldn’t believe the dentist when he told me he had given me 2 injections, I never felt a thing.

When it came to the extraction I was nervous but I needn’t have worried. I never felt a thing, I was truly amazed.

~Jeff Bracey, Cardiff


“Gareth and team, with the successful completion of my recent “dental additions” I thought it very important to formally record how impressed I have been with all aspects of Advance Dental Care, Highlight Park.

These comments refer to the initial reception to the actual dental work which I have found really excellent and successful. I shall be handing in to reception a very small token of thanks which I hope you will all enjoy with your morning coffee.

 ~Roy Cornelius Page, Penarth  


I went to see Andrew about 2 years ago as I was self conscious about the appearance of my teeth. Although my teeth where in reasonable condition, I had worn them down by grinding.

Andrew recommended building them up into a natural shape using white filling material. He made impressions of my upper teeth, and then sculpted the first six into a lovely natural, shape. I was, and still am delighted with the result. Mr Nourish you truly are an artist!

If you are considering cosmetic dental work, I highly recommend Andrew Nourish and his great team for a first rate service.

 ~Alyson from Cardiff


Great dentist. Pleased with work carried out. Had new dentures. Fit perfectly. Cost a bit but tried the cheap option (NHS) and as they say “you get what you pay for!” Very happy with Andrew. Wife and three children are booked in now. Thanks for making me smile.

 ~Richard Marshall


Having come from a dental practice where the receptionists were miserable, the atmosphere gloomy and the treatment poor, I can say that Advance Dental Care is the complete opposite.

The staff are friendly and efficient , the atmosphere pleasant and relaxed, and the quality of dental treatment absolutely superb.

~JW, Dinas Powys


I would just like to say that I have had a filling today and no anaesthetic and it was pain free. And the care from the whole practice is fantastic, very welcoming.  I would definitely advise no anaesthetic. Thanks to all at Advance Dental Care.

~Zena Cameron


Advance Dental Care is the BEST dental practice I have ever been to.

From the front line reception staff, the hygienist, dental nurses and Andrew my dentist.

They are all happy, professional and above all up to the minute equipment and pain free. I had the best deep root filling of my life, I did not feel a thing

~Sue White from Barry


At 63 years of age I have seen many dentists across the country and have always been terrified as I have been put through a lot of pain.

That was until I met Andy Nourish, he said a painless extraction and that is exactly what I had. A brilliant, understanding dentist I would highly recommend to anyone. Well done Andy.

~Maurice Cox, Barry


I am very pleased with the results after having a brace. I feel it’s given me confidence with my smile and within myself.

~Jodi Bowles from Barry


Just wanted to say a huge thank you for all your kindness and help whilst I’ve been receiving treatment. You have all been very helpful and I’ve felt totally at ease whenever I come for my appointment.

I’m so pleased with my results, I will be highly recommending the dentist to all my friends.

Thanks again. Keep up the good work, it pays off!

 ~Jacqui from Bridgend


Thanks for the first class care I had last Friday at your practice. I was on holiday in Cardiff when I had the emergency and was treated so quickly and efficiently.

Keep up the brilliant work you do! Thanks again.

 ~Keith Fernandes from Cardiff
