I have been a happy patient with the Lincoln Smile Centre since its initiation some years ago. All staff are very courteous and any treatment required is of the highest standard coupled with the use of all the latest dental equipment and I can honestly say that I never have that "scared" feeling when an appointment is due. The Lincoln Smile Centre also has free parking facilities for visiting patients removing the problem of where to parkMrs M.N. - Lincoln, updated March 2013
I hadn't been to a dentist for over 30 years and my memories were not pleasant ones. Lincoln Smile Centre was recommended to me as a dental practice that is modern, friendly and having been treated there my admiration for their advancement in dental practice and equipment is enormous.
First impressions are the receptionist who smiles and puts you at ease straight away, followed secondly by the relaxed calming welcome by the dental nurse and the dentist, who are both caring and professional. Thirdly the modern equipment and advancement in anaesthetic is incomparable to my previous experiences, but finally and most importantly the skill of the dentist in his repair of my teeth and the excellent match of my dentures. I would have no hesitation in recommending this practice to anyone needing dental and hygiene work.T. T. - Collingham, updated February 2013
I have been delighted with the result of my implants as they feel no different from my own teeth and I can enjoy laughing and eating again.
The treatment was long but was exactly as set out in the treatment plan and I felt very looked after by Tom and his Team, who were caring and professional during the different procedures, especially during the actual surgery when I felt no pain.
I would recommend implants to anyone. For me they were worth the expense.
The whole experience was managed so well and I recommend and rate Lincoln Smile Centre extremely highlyB.J. Lincoln, December 2012
To Tom and the whole of Lincoln Smile Centre team.
Thanks so much for making what was, and could have been a very traumatic time for me, a very positive experience
D.M. (Lincoln) - December 2012
I have been most impressed by Tom and his caring dental team, top marks!!.
Due to a denture intolerance and complex bite I decided to have a permanent porcelain bridge supported by 3 implants. Every possibility was explored by Tom to achieve the best outcome to suit my individual needs.
A care plan was made and everything discussed fully with me.
The procedure, although intense, was relatively pain free. Tom being a perfectionist, has done a wonderful job along with his team.
I would highly recommend the dental practice and implants, I intend on having further implants in the future. It has been a great confidence booster too.Mr F.S. (Lincoln) - December 2012
The service and treatment has been superb. Tom is a fantastic dentist and the Invisalign treatment has had amazing results. I would recommend this treatment to anyone considering improving their smile.
S.M, Gainsborough, Nov 2012
After years of avoiding going to the dentist and suffering from dental phobia I was finally forced into seeing a dentist due to severe toothache. Tom Smithard is a fantastic dentist who put me at ease, kept me calm and allayed my fears. I would thoroughly recommend Tom and the Lincoln Smile Centre, now my dental fear is a thing of the past. Thank you.
Mrs S. C. (Lincoln) March 2012
Mr Tom Smithard carried out restorative treatment for me on three teeth, including a dental implant in 2011. Mr Smithard and his team started with a thorough oral check-up and, after discussion with me, proposed a treatment plan. I was very happy with this plan, which was carried out in a caring and friendly manner with no or minimal pain during and after the appointments.
I was kept informed of the progress of the treatment at all times. I am delighted with the outcome, especially the implant: I was quite self-conscious about the gap which showed when smiling, and have had a marked confidence boost since the procedure. I would recommend Mr Smithard and the practice to family and friends and will continue to visit in the future for my dental health needs.
Mr T. M. (Lincoln) June 2011
Having just had two implants, I would like to say how pleased I am with the finished result. The dental team from the start put me at ease, and were very caring, friendly and approachable at all times. During my treatment I never suffered any pain, in fact it was just like a normal dental appointment, only longer. I am very happy with the outcome of the treatment. I now have two less gaps and a complete smile, together with a one hundred per cent satisfaction. I would certainly advise anyone thinking of having the treatment to go along and have a chat. You will find them very friendly. Thoroughly recommended.
Mr J.W. (Lincoln) September 2011
Background For many years I have had a dentist phobia, and in the past used to put up with toothache until the discomfort and pain exceeded my fear of seeing a dentist. I am very please to say that since moving to Lincolnshire in 2005 I have frequently consulted Niel Bosman as my dental practitioner including attending for check-ups and hygienist visits while free of any pain or discomfort, Niel has achieved this remarkable turn-around in by having patience with me and allowing me to build trust and confidence in him as a dentist and become comfortable that he puts my comfort and wellbeing ahead of getting the job done.Customer Service
Lincoln Smile Centre provide excellent service, and have been very accommodating with regard to fitting appointments around my busy working life, this has frequently meant appointments at 8.00am allowing me the rest of the day to get on with my work,
I have been very impressed by their polite and considerate telephone calls on the day following treatment enquiring about my well being and making sure I am happy with the results of any work done. And a very helpful telephone call to remind me of appointments a few days before.
One of the most important aspects of dental care provided by Niel Bosman has been the time he takes in each consultation, no rush to get on with the next patient and at all times a feeling of calm concern for my well being while he works. At no time has there been any pain caused by Niel during any procedure, including the injection of local anaesthetic, during drilling for fillings or during tooth extraction, this is a fantastic improvement on my experience of NHS dentists. He always checks that I am comfortable during and after each procedure.My Dental Implant
When one of my teeth, that had previously been held together with fillings, shattered, I had to make a decision about having it replaced. Niel Bosman made sure that I understood the range of options available to me. before choosing to have an implant he made sure I understood what I would be committing myself to, he was very specific, made sure that I understood and how long it would take from start to completion of the implant and the time required in the dental chair (for a person with a previous history of dentist phobia, this is essential). I am delighted that he took the time and effort to help me decide to have an implant, it has been in for about two years now, it is and always has been very comfortable, it looks just like my own teeth, and feels as normal as any other tooth in my mouth, in other words I forget it’s there.
Mr. J. Thorpe, Lincoln
The treatment I received at The Lincoln Smile centre was painless with excellent customer care. I was delighted with my veneers, they have given me so much confidence, I wish I had done it years ago. I would definitely recommend The Lincoln Smile Centre.
Although having an implant takes months from start to finish, Niel made sure each stage of the process was comfortable and convenient, and most importantly, pain free. I would highly recommend that anybody who needs to have a tooth replaced should consider this procedure.
Mrs. K. Cox, Mablethorpe
After years of sleepless nights before visiting a dentist I now look forward to my dental visits. The staff are professional, friendly and most of all caring. I love getting photographs taken now and smiling comes naturally as I have had extensive work completed on my teeth. This is due entirely to my confidence in my Dentist, Dr Niel Bosman and his excellent team. I therefore have no hesitation in recommending him to my family and friends.
Mrs. A. Hall, Waddington
I am absolutely delighted with my implant. It is three years old now and has been completely problem-free.
Niel discussed each stage of the procedure with me and I suffered no discomfort.
I would recommend both the implant and Niel without any hesitation.
Mrs. M. Field, Market Rasen
I would be very happy to recommend your services – I am delighted to have my new bridge on my implants fitted, it just feels like normal teeth.
I was initially apprehensive of the process but you and your staff soon put me at ease and I was assured and well informed at very stage. Any fears I had were soon dispelled and I am delighted with my new smile.
Kind regards and best wishes
Mrs. M. Weaver, Lincoln
I was very pleased to choose the Lincoln Smile Centre for my dental treatment.
A very friendly team, who were always available to talk to if I had any questions about my treatment.
Lincoln Smile Centre provide an excellent after care service, I would recommend them to anyone who is considering
Mr. R. McIntyre, Horncastle
With regards to the Lincoln Smile Centre, I have found the customer service to be courteous, professional and helpful in every respect. It is refreshing to find a dentist who takes time and care to explain the situation and the range of options so clearly. I have felt very well cared for whenever we have visited the clinic, be it for treatment or just for a check up.
I have had complex treatments, and we have always been impressed by the painlessness and the speed with which Dr Bosman carried out the work. The outcome was better than I expected; the new tooth has improved my smile, and proved to be quite liberating.
I have every confidence in The Lincoln Smile Centre and the good work of Dr Bosman.
Mrs. J. Page, Lincoln
I found your dental treatment at the Lincoln Smile Centre fantastic! All the staff were friendly and helpful. The hygienist was a lovely person and so encouraging and understanding at me being afraid. Dr Bosman is the gentlest dentist I have ever been too! I just did not feel the injections at all.
I am so thrilled with the outcome it is so much better than I ever imagined, with all the awful gaps I had.
I would thoroughly recommend them to anybody.
Mrs J. O., Lincoln
I have always been very happy with the service you provide, in a wonderfully relaxing atmosphere with extremely friendly and helpful staff.
As regards the implants, they went perfectly, with no pain or discomfort and was looked after really well.
The whole process went extremely well and the implants after two years have not given me the slightest trouble and feel like real teeth.
The implants have been so good that it has given me a lot of confidence and I would not hesitate to have any more fitted in the future and would certainly recommend anyone else to the Practice to have any dental work done.
Mr. S. Parker, Louth
I joined the Cosmetic Dental Studio (now Lincoln Smile Centre) about 4 years ago and could not wish for better. Everyone at the practice is very friendly, treats me as an individual and gives me personal attention which is very rare in today’s busy world.
Niel talked me through how I could enhance my smile and I decided to have all my old amalgam fillings replaced with white fillings. Neil is an extremely skilled professional and made sure that every care was taken to make this a pain free procedure which was done in two sessions.
I was delighted with the results and wished I had the right guidance before as I definitely would have had it done sooner. I have received many compliments since and now when I smile I feel I can do so whole heartedly showing all my pearly whites.
I cannot speak highly enough about Niel and his team. The Lincoln Smile Centre is the first private practice I joined and I would definitely recommend them to anyone who wants great personal service and excellent treatments. Not only has my smile improved but also the overall health of my teeth and gums. It is well worth it. Thank you all at Lincoln Smile Centre!
Ms. I. Van Noort, Horncastle
I am very happy to make recommendations for dental work carried out by Niel Bosman of The Lincoln Smile Centre. Having had some quite extensive dental work done there which included bridge work, crowns and an implant, I was more than impressed. The service and welcome of the staff are exemplary and I was made to feel at ease immediately. They were all very reassuring and informative about what was going to be done.
The treatment itself was carried out with the utmost care and each step explained to me by Niel along the way. Sometimes I had to be in the dentist chair for up to 2hrs, but at no time did I experience any pain. I was always told what was about to happen, and kept informed of the progress of the operation as it was being done, which was so helpful and calming.
I felt very well cared for at all times during each of my visits as the progress was made through my treatment. I was seen quickly and promptly on each occasion and felt that a very good watch was kept on the outcome of all the procedures that were done. It is 2 years since my work was done and the after care has also been excellent.
I can only say now that I’m absolutely delighted with the dental work that was done and I am no longer afraid to smile with confidence. With my previous loose crown and fillings at the front of my mouth, I did have problems, but now I cannot believe the difference Niel has made and how much better I feel.
The implant treatment was the most extensive part of my dental work and took the longest time, but again was pain free and was worth going through. The new tooth is wonderful and no one would know it wasn’t my tooth, even to me it just feels like any other tooth in my mouth. I’m very impressed.
Mrs. P. King, Lincoln
Back in 2005 I was petrified of the Dentists but I was in terrible pain and had a few bad experiences and consequently did not go for at least 10 years.
I looked through the yellow pages and found the ‘Cosmetic Dental Studio’ as it was known then, and they had an email address so I braved it and emailed them.
I was too terrified to call. I received a lovely reassuring email back and plucked up courage to call and the receptionist put me at ease so I booked an appointment with Niel.
I found him to be very gentle and caring and he really listened to my worries and fears and made me at ease.
I have now been going for 5 years and have treatment with no hesitation thanks to Neil, Jane my Hygienist and the wonderful team at the ‘Lincoln Smile Centre’.
I will always highly recommend them.
Thank you again.
Mrs. C. Tindall, Lincoln
Having lost the post on my upper front crown and having it replaced with a very uncomfortable denture, I decided in a consultation with Niel Bosman to embark into, for me unknown territory, the fitting of a dental implant.
The procedure was carefully explained and I went ahead. The result after nearly 2 years has been excellent, a good match, no pain and was encouraged to stop smoking after nearly 60 years!
Flushed with this success I then went ahead with two more implants filling a long standing gap in my upper jaw, although this process is quite expensive, if successful appears to have a long life.
I would therefore recommend anyone who maybe thinking about implants to talk it over with Niel Bosman as the treatment and hygiene were first class
Mr. P. Wright, Lincoln
In October 2007 I sought Niel’s professional advice regarding the appearance of two upper crowns, which were larger than my original teeth.
Niel made a thorough inspection, including x-rays and gave me two options of treatment. One to replace the crowns with crowns, the other to insert implants. I chose the implants, being a more long term solution. The treatment was carried out over a series of appointments, some two hours long. It was not painful.
Throughout Niel and his assistants were mindful of my comfort and wellbeing and I was given an out of hours number in case I needed it.
I live 25 miles out of Lincoln and was able to drive to and from each appointment. The implants are wonderful and they are trouble free, not only do they look better, they are more reliable than the crowns or my natural teeth.
I have no hesitation in recommending the practice or implants to anyone
Mrs J Green, Horncastle
Mr. Niel Bosman is the best Dentist I have ever been to, The Lincoln Smile Centre cannot be beaten for the excellent treatment it provide the professional manner of the staff.
There is simply no comparison to any other treatment I have ever received elsewhere.
I always leave the Lincoln Smile Centre feeling well cared for and secure in the knowledge that professional treatment is just a phone call away, and the treatment certainly meets my expectations.
I have recently had an implanted tooth which feels like a real tooth and I would certainly recommend the practice to everyone for professional, top quality care before, during and after treatment,
Many Thanks for your excellent service
Mr. R. Prime, Lincoln
Dear Dr. Bosman,
Thank you so much for your most professional and dedicated treatment which I have received, your professional yet sensitive approach towards the treatment always assures me that I am in good hands. There are so many very talented and skilled dentists, but I believe that the most important aspect of being the best dentist is not only the technique but also the sensitivity to understand the patients and the treatments.
I had my implant done two years ago and have hardly noticed it since.
Although you thoroughly explained the procedure, I fully prepared myself for every step I went through and the results were absolutely perfect, more than I expected.
Moreover, I think it’s the most brilliant idea that the staff, hygienist, reception and dental nurses are all rotated so that all of them know what happens and know the patients well. We feel that we are part of a big family AND they are all so kind and friendly.
I have always recommended you to all of my friends and have no hesitation in recommending you to anybody who wants high standard long term professional dental care.
Mrs. R. Day, Grantham
