My six year old girl had a lot of dental work carried out as an outpatient in The Bon Secours Hospital for one day due to weak enamel. We both had an excellent experience. It was as if my daughter had nothing done. She had no pain or discomfort of any kind after her treatment. The standard of care was outstanding and the advice we received from Jennifer to take this approach was very much appreciated. My daughter has no memory of the work done, just the thrill of sitting in a big chair with lovely glasses on.
