What our customers say about us
Dr Tara Thomas Helped me Overcome my Dental Anxiety.
Tara had been recommended to me few years ago. I have been suffering from a severe dental anxiety and only visiting dentists every few years - when I absolutely had no choice.
She was able to skilfully guide me through each and every step of the visit, putting me in control of the treatment and going beyond her professional duties to support me. It must have costed her enormously in time and patience. She empowers you to use techniques that work for you – from holding the equipment, placing pictures on the wall – world is your oyster! What is more, she is a true perfectionist producing the highest standard of work medically and aesthetically.
Both my daughter and I have now been able to attend routine and preventative treatment visits regularly. She not only helped me to overcome my dental anxiety, but also made me more confident as a person. Most importantly she helped me to be an epitome for my daughter. I am so thankful that we were able to establish such a good relationship, which I hope will continue over the years.

We have been visiting Tara as a family over the last ten years, and we have always found her to be very friendly, knowledgeable and professional. She has a very calm and supportive approach, particularly with our two children who started visiting Tara when they were both quite young. Neither of them have ever been afraid to visit, even when they required treatment as they, and I felt they were in very safe hands. She takes time to explain exactly what the treatment will involve, and our appointments never feel rushed. Tara is also interested in the overall care and well-being of her patients, not just their dental health. We would highly recommend Tara to anyone looking for a dental expert, with a very friendly, relaxed approach.

Good family dental practice in Guildford with free parking nearby. The whole family are happy with the the professional service provided by Tara Thomas and her team. I am impressed with the recent crown work carried out by Tara on a molar tooth. Email reminders help me to keep track of appointments and check-ups.

Tara and her team manage to deliver very professional dental care in an exceptionally caring and friendly environment. Having been a patient for many years, a visit to the dentist feels like dropping in on an old friend.

From simple fillings to complex bridgework, I have always received excellent treatment from Mrs Thomas. She runs a fantastic general dental practice where I feel totally at ease whenever I go. Her clinical competence gives me every confidence in her diagnosis and treatment planning.

I was recommended to go to your surgery by a friend, and I wasn’t disappointed. Tara you put me at ease straight away, which helped a lot when I was so nervous. You have such a friendly team working with you. I wouldn’t go anywhere else now.
- Mrs M
We have been Tara’s patients for about fifteen years, and sought her out when she moved from a practice in Woking to Austen Road. We appreciate her caring, conservative approach to looking after our teeth, only undertaking treatment which is truly necessary and beneficial. Four years ago, we moved to Devon, where there are dentists!
We would still rather travel the 200 miles to Guildford, however, to see Tara for our dental check-ups and treatment, and plan to continue to do so.

I have lived in Woking for quite some years now and Tara has only ever been my dentist. She sees other members of my family as well and is trustworthy and has a kind demeanor. She is knowledgeable and I will go on trusting her to take care of my teeth.

All my family enjoyed the services of Tara and her staff for over six years. She was extremely friendly as well as professional and proved especially gifted with our daughter. Appointments with Tara have always been characterised by a relaxed atmosphere and clear communication.
We recommended this Practice to many of our Italian friends living in Guildford during our stay in the UK and we are happy to share our positive experience with a wider audience now that we had to move abroad. We truly regret we have to look for a new dentist !! We would have stayed with Tara a million times.

Tara Thomas has been my dentist for five years, and she is one of the very best I have ever known. Tara is exceptionally dedicated to her profession and her clients - her levels of care and commitment are simply outstanding. She is also very knowledgeable and passionate about dentistry and dental care, and works very hard with you to ensure that you look after your teeth properly.

I have been with Tara from when she first opened her own practice and have on every visit been made to feel welcome and comfortable. Her 'chair'-side manner is reassuring and patient when treatment is being done. In fact everyone there is very nice. I will always use Austen Road Dental Practice and I am looking forward to my next appointment!

We have been coming to Tara for the past twenty years. It may sound strange to say, but we always look forward to visiting her surgery, and have suchconfidence in her treatment that we still return...even though we live in France.
