Wouldn't trust another dentist now that I am a patient here. Exceptional practice in a state of the art clinic. Have had a range of complex treatments here from root canal to extraction, all which were done with great care and required little or no pain relief afterwards. Would highly recommend! (R.A.)
I have been visiting the Dental Care Centre in Canterbury for approximately 4 years. The dentist Maarten Tonsbeek has a fantastic reputation locally and this has only been confirmed when I have visited. Maarten is extremely precise, knowledgeably and friendly. I would recommend him to anyone interested in seeking a new dentist. (A.K.)
My Wife and I have been a patients of the Dental Care Centre Canterbury for a number of years and we have always been very pleased with the professional and friendly service provided by Maarten and his staff. Maarten takes a great deal of care to explain the treatment to be undertaken and to ensure there is as little discomfort as possible. Although we have moved to a new home 300 miles away,such is our trust and confidence in him that we shall still continue to use the excellent service provided.We very much doubt that we could find a better dentist. (C.J.)
I've been coming to the Dental Care Centre in Canterbury for 6 years, due to the excellent and professional treatment. I can highly recommend Maarten and his team. (T.P.)
Maarten has been looking after my dental needs for over 20 years and has always provided a first class service. It is so nice in this day and age to have someone who bothers to take their time, put you at ease and always explain fully what is going on. (C.C.)
I have been a patient at Maarten Tonsbeek's practice for many years and can honestly say that the level of professionalism and friendliness at the Centre is second to none. I would recommend him to anyone who is looking for a new dentist. He certainly gets my whole family's vote! (S.G.)
I have been a very happy patient of Maarten Tonsbeek for 28 years. I am a very nervous client after having a bad experience with dentistry as a child. Maarten has been brilliant. He has been patient, understanding and has a sense of humour which allays my fears. After required, extensive work I have a prettier smile than ever before. His receptionist Lin and nurse Ann are most charming too! Thank you to them all. (J.C)
I Have been a patient for years and would not go anywhere else. Mr Tonsbeek runs a highly professional unit and his work is exceptional. Extremely accommodating when emergency situations occur. The team are very friendly and we would not hesitate to recommend this dental practice. (E.C.)
I have been going to Maarten Tonsbeek for in excess of 10 years and have complete trust in him as a dental practitioner and his practise. I would recommend them to anyone looking for a new dentist. (M.P.)
I was so pleased to find this dentist over 20 years ago. I was so nervous I used to jump out of the chair every time the drill started up. Now I feel so relaxed at times I could almost fall asleep. Mr. Tonsbeek is a first class dentist. (J.P.)
We have used the Dental Care Centre as a family for many years and have always been very pleased and impressed with the care and treatment we have received. We have found Maarten Tonsbeek is caring to us as his patients including those of us who are anxious or need emergency treatment and is very understanding of our needs and worries. He always explains what he is doing and takes time to answer questions. Maarten and his staff are all very friendly with Lynn always having a smile and welcome and although going to the dentist can sometimes be daunting we always manage many laughs with all of them, which has to be good. We would not go anywhere else to have our teeth looked after and would definitely recommend The Dental Care Centre to anyone looking for an excellent dentist. (L.L.)
Having been with Maarten Tonsbeek for 27 years since he took over the practice, have highly recommended him to family friends and colleagues. He provides a highly professional dental service with an amazing attitude and a relaxing manner which for me always makes my dental visit almost nervous and stress free ! His practice maybe small but it only adds to the genuine friendly service. (S.E.)
Have been at this practice for some 18 years during which time I have first class service Fixing an appointment both time/ day has never been a problem However the main point of this review is to say the treatment, and post visit advise, has left me very comfortable in the service provided Would not hesitate to recommend the Dental Care Centre (
Just a line to say thank you very much for the work you did for me last week. I’m very pleased with both the appearance and feel. You are blessed with a gift! (J.B)
I just wanted to thank you for a great experience over the last few days. I've been really struggling to find a new dental surgery in the area and feel like I really lucked out by discovering the Dental Care Centre through a casual Google search. From having the car park opposite, to the lovely receptionist, to the no-nonsense way appointments and time were managed, to Mr. Tonsbeek? Excellent mix of professional efficiency and unhurried, personable bedside manner, I was delighted with the whole experience and look forward to visiting the surgery regularly for years to come. (M.Howells)
I have been visiting this dental surgery for about a year now and have been impressed by the availability and care offered. Mr. Tonsbeek's dental care is first class - just had a crown fitted and was really impressed by the quality of the lab work - and would recommend this surgery to anyone looking for a dentist in Canterbury. (Melissa Cleary)
I can highly recommend Maarten Tonsbeek as a dentist. He is very knowledgeable, offers very good service and the prices are very fair. He always puts you at ease and makes a trip to the dentist a pleasure. (William Betham)
I had a bad night’s sleep due to a raging toothache. This morning I sent an email to Mr Tonsbeek's surgery and the receptionist telephoned back within 5 minutes. An appointment was arranged for 10am and the nasty old tooth was removed.
I was really impressed, not only by the service, but also Mr Tonsbeek’s professionalism. I hadn't even realised that he had removed the tooth as it was such a totally painless experience. I could not recommend Mr Tonsbeek highly enough. Well done.
(Rev. Tony Budell, a very grateful patient indeed)
My husband and I have been with this practice since 1974. We have therefore been with Mr. Tonsbeek since he began here. I am a very nervous patient but have always found Maarten Tonsbeek to be very kind, courteous and understanding, putting me at ease, especially through the extensive treatment that I have required. I now have a prettier smile than I had in my youth!
A word about the receptionists, we have always found them friendly and polite. We love the decor which has a relaxing atmosphere and reflects the Dutch master that Mr. Tonsbeek is! We have no hesitation in recommending this practice. (Mrs. Janice Connor)
You have been looking after my husband and myself for many years, and have managed, through kindness and understanding to cure me of my phobia of dentistry! I must admit that at the suggestion of need for root fillings filled me with dread. I took my courage in both hands and came to see you. To my surprise I had no pain either at the time of the procedure, or afterwards. In fact you were brilliant. I actually am looking forward to seeing you in six months time, can you believe. Many thanks. (Mrs. M. Sparks)
At the Dental Care Centre you will discover a pleasant, peaceful atmosphere, where the walls are tastefully decorated with Van Gogh floral prints.
Above all, you will find a highly skilled, unpretentious professional who clearly enjoys tricky dental challenges and glows with satisfaction when they are met. I came to Mr. Tonsbeek in some desperation towards the end of 2008, after a succession of negative experiences with several dental practices in Canterbury. After having received the treatment, I can once again smile confidently in public, due to the expert care and attention I have been fortunate to receive. At every stage of my treatment, I was kept fully informed of procedures, options and costs. Consequently, I have pleasure in recommending his services. (Ms. Hilary Rouse-Amadi)
Maarten Tonsbeek has been looking after my family's dental health for many years and I cannot recommend him highly enough. Reassuring, infinitely patient and thoroughly professional Maarten Tonsbeek takes all the anxiety out of a visit to the dentist. He is enthusiastic about his work and keeps abreast of all the new developments in dentistry. (Mrs. Jane Chakravorty)
I have been going to Maarten Tonsbeek for over 20 years now and he is the best dentist in the universe. I live abroad part of the time and have always come back - from Egypt, the Bahamas, Bermuda and Canada, to have him do my teeth. I have a front crown he did which is perfect, and he always gives honest, reliable and correct advice at all times. He also keeps fully up-to-date with new techniques and procedures, and has a very good 'bedside' manner. Heartily recommended. (
Mrs. Diane Antone)
I was very pleased and impressed with the caring and professional way Mr. Tonsbeek dealt with my dental treatment. (
Mrs. L. Parkinson)
With Mr. Tonsbeek I always feel I am in very safe hands. You feel instantly reassured and are made to feel very welcome by his receptionist. The surgery is the most modern I have ever seen and the fact that he almost without fail, sees you on the appointed time or even before, is a real bonus. The advantage with a small practice is that you always see the same dentist. With previous practices I have attended, you never managed to see the same dentist twice. I have been going to him for the last 15 years and would not go anywhere else. ( Mr. F. Jones)
