I'm not someone who particularly looks forward to sitting in a dentist chair and having been told in the past that I would require to have some invasive surgery to achieve a good smile I have put it off for years.
In the end I made the enquiry and immediately felt at ease with Graham and Sam and as a bonus I was told after my initial consultation that I could achieve a great smile without the surgery thanks to the Smilelign technology. Why did I put it off for so long?
The result is amazing and I'm so pleased.
Thank you Graham and Sam!!
After having spent years staying away from any dentist, I finally took a leap of faith and contacted Graham after hearing nothing but good things about him.
My teeth weren’t in great shape so getting over this hurdle was a huge thing for me.
I needn’t have worried. From the minute I stepped inside and met Sam (Grahams amazing assistant) and Graham they put my mind at rest immediately.
I felt super relaxed with them, considering I have been petrified of stepping inside a dentist for so many years, I couldn’t believe how confident they made me feel.
We talked through the options available for me to finally improve my smile.
Appointments were booked and within a month the progress was amazing. I actually started looking forward to my appointments.
The attention to detail is amazing. Everything they do is bespoke to you. Picking a tooth colour for my new porcelain crowns was something I never thought I would do!! I felt no pain at any of my appts and I had some heavy duty dental work done so this made it the best experience. Everything was always explained in great detail before any work was completed. Nothing was ever too much trouble.
Even though I have now finished my current treatment (I had 10 new porcelain crowns fitted plus lots of dental hygiene work) the ongoing care is still there. The aftercare is second to none and I will now be a regular at Grahams, my fear of dentists finally gone and that’s down to Sam & Graham being the best there is around.
If like me you are waiting to take that first step into finally improving your smile, do it, call Graham & Sam. It’s the best experience I’ve ever had, it’s changed my life and it will definitely change yours.
I thought it would be appropriate to say a few words about my cosmetic work recently conducted at the Graham Wilding Dental Practice, Poulton-Le Fylde.
But first, some background. Graham and Sam have provided dental care to my family and I since 1991 (wow! 31 years, where has it gone ?), and this has always been in a caring, professional and compassionate manner.
My teeth were never particularly good to start with, hence I am extremely grateful to Graham and Sam for supporting my/our dental needs over the years. We are also thankful for the support given to my youngest daughter during her ENT (Ear Nose Throat) journey when she was younger.
Anyway, after enduring years of having a dodgy smile (something that I was very conscious about), I’m happy to report that I received my new cosmetic crowns this week (Oct 2022).
The process was surprisingly straight forward and pain free, and the results are simply marvelous. I can honestly say that I’ve never smiled as much as I have done his week!
Thank you Graham and Sam.
Well, where do I begin? After a tough start to 2022, I decided life is too short to not be happy with something, and that something for me was my smile. Constantly hiding it away, be it behind my hands or looking down to make sure nobody noticed my biggest insecurity, my teeth.
I cant lie, I was absolutely petrified of the thought of sitting in a dentist chair, but I needed to do it for me, for my confidence. As soon as I came across Graham, I knew I had to contact him to see if he could help me feel confident again.
From the first telephone conversation with Graham, I felt at ease straight away. He reassured me that something could be done and that I would soon be so much happier. My first face to face appointment went very smoothly. From the moment I entered the spotless practice, both Graham and his lovely dental nurse Sam made me feel comfortable, and in very safe hands. Their professionalism and calmness is second to none and I felt no more anxiety at anymore of my appointments.
The whole process was smooth, quick, and painless and the final outcome is more than I could of ever imagined. I now smile at every passer by, just because I can!! I literally couldn't be happier and there is not enough thanks in the world to express my sincere appreciation to Graham and Sam.
The artistry is simply phenomenal! I'd recommend Graham to absolutely anybody, without a second thought. THANK YOU! THANK YOU!! THANK YOU!!!
I have been a patient at several dental practices over the years and have always found them impersonal. I’ve also always wanted straight white teeth for as long as I can remember but unfortunately nature and lifestyle choices have meant this has been an unrealistic ambition for me until very recently.
I first heard Graham’s radio advert one morning in late 2021 whilst on the school run. It sounded both credible and inviting and I felt compelled to make an enquiry. The response was both swift and non-judgmental and after a brief telephone consultation, I went for an initial meeting at Graham’s clinic in beautiful Poulton-le-Flyde. It was clear from the outset that this was going to be a very different experience to that which I had previously endured…
Graham is a hugely compassionate professional. His warm, welcoming manner is totally refreshing when compared with the insincere brief exchange of pleasantries I had unfortunately become used to. He took the time to explain the course of treatment in great detail and provided a full costing for the work involved. It was an easy decision to proceed based both on the value proposition and (more importantly for me) that I immediately felt safe in his care and that of his friendly assistant Samantha.
As we progressed through the Treatment Plan, the difference in approach became even more apparent. Regular checks to ensure you are comfortable, more than adequate analgesia and updates in terms of how much longer he would be at each sitting were all new to me. A text message follow up after every visit was also comforting and well received even though I never actually experienced any pain.
Suffice to say, I’m absolutely delighted with the outcome. My new smile looks natural and fresh and is a testament to Graham’s tremendous skill and experience.
I would have no hesitation recommending Graham’s services. The entire patient experience was a delight from start to finish and sets the standard against which other practitioners should be judged.
From the very first phone call I was made to feel welcome and included in the whole process. Graham and Sam make a great team and their friendly but professional manner would put even the most nervous client at ease. I can honestly say that I didn’t feel pain once throughout any of my treatment and that is indeed testament to Graham’s skill and experience. Now, on completion, I couldn’t be happier with the finished results - the artistry of the technicians to produce such realistic crowns is truly amazing and I do indeed now have my smile back so thanks to all involved.

My patient journey and experience with Graham and Sam has been exceptional. I didn’t think it possible that my damaged teeth and receding gums, could be transformed into something so natural and beautiful. I can now smile with confidence. Thank you to Graham and Sam.
After years of talking about sorting my ancient crowns out, I used lockdown as an excuse to get things moving. The initial consultation over whatsapp was great and subsequent visits to the surgery were made so easy by Graham and Sam. The service is fantastic, with Graham even giving me a phone after procedures to check all was ok and if any tweaks were needed. After having 16 teeth crowned with no pain, my smile is now fabulous. I would highly recommend Graham for his cosmetic dentistry skills, at a not too painful cost!

After plucking up enough courage to give Graham a ring for a consultation about my teeth, which were in a bad way after years off neglect and having some bad experiences from other dentists, I managed to shake my way through the consultation - probably damaging the chair in the process with my finger nails, whilst Graham and Sam watched on in disbelief as I laid there like a gibbering wreck in tears. I think they thought ‘Oh my god we’ve not even done anything yet . . !’
After my consultation Graham and Sam talked me through what was going to be my next six months of treatment . . . and with the words “don’t worry” in the back of my head from Sam, I decided to go ahead with the treatment.
Graham is a genius in the dentistry world along with his flawless approach, attention to detail and friendly attitude. Also with Sam’s reassurance, kind words of encouragement, funny little stories, and her caring text messages . . . I don’t think I could have done it anywhere else.
It has changed me from a gibbering wreck into someone who now skips into the dentist surgery.
I seriously recommend Graham Wilding to be the only Dentist you should ever visit. He should be cloned in the dentist world.
Ian Manning, Singleton
From the very beginning I found Graham and Sam to be genuinely charming people who very quickly made me feel comfortable and relaxed. The treatment plan was clear and sensible, without being persuasive. The whole process was well organised and painless and now I have a lovely smile to be proud of. I can heartily recommend this friendly dental duo.
Carole Leheup, Preesall
“Graham is a master of his craft. He and Sam offer an unrivalled service, providing the time, care and reassurance that you need when embarking upon dental treatment. I am now constantly smiling with my new smile and feel 10 years younger. I really can’t recommend the team highly enough. ”
Jayne Barnes. Little Eccleston
“I was quoted £4,500.00 from a well-known dental clinic in Manchester, for something I didn’t even need! After hearing on the radio about Graham Wilding in Poulton le Fylde, I emailed him. He got back to me straight away and when I told him how my teeth were not straight, he offered me a free consultation so I could consider my options. He and his nurse, Sam, made me feel really at ease and after they explained the fees, I decided to go ahead. Now I am so happy. My teeth look great and the cost was no where near that which I was quoted in Manchester!!! Amazing! Thank you! I would 1000 percent recommend Graham and Sam. So professional!!!”
"Graham was recommended to me by a friend, who had a new smile makeover from him and so I already knew his standards were very high but I was not sure if he would be able to help me in the same way. Both Graham and Sam were very easy to get along with and very quickly I felt at ease with them. But when the treatment was finished, the results were even better! I am still amazed and can’t stop smiling. For anyone considering cosmetic dental treatment I have no hesitation in recommending them."
Ton Smith, Fleetwood
"I have always thought the sort of treatment provided by Graham Wilding Cosmetic Dentistry, was only available in cities like Manchester and Liverpool. So, when I discovered that I did not have to pay city prices for my new smile, I was very pleasantly surprised. Also, being based in Poulton le Fylde, Graham’s surgery is only about 15 minutes from the M55 motorway, so it is very easy to get to from anywhere in the Northwest."
Andrew Thomson, Chorley, Lancashire
"Graham Wilding has been my family’s dentist for over 30 years and he and Sam have always shown the upmost care, professionalism and precision. Not only do I thank Graham and Sam for being reliable and welcoming but for also allowing me to be happy with my smile, thank you for everything!"
"True professionalism, delivered with a personal, friendly and caring approach."
"They are very approachable. I am always asked if I am happy with the treatment."
"I came as a nervous patient and Graham did everything in stages. At any point he would stop. He spent a lot of time with me. He was brilliant in every way."
"Graham has been my dentist for about 15 years. He is careful and caring and provides a good service at a reasonable price."
"Where to start, Graham and Sam immediately put you at ease, provide first class service from the minute you make an appointment and put you completely at ease when you arrive and when you are in the chair. I cannot recommend Graham Wilding Cosmetic Dentistry enough. I had to have my front six teeth bridged following a hockey stick to the mouth and the bridge looks better than my original teeth and I constantly receive compliments about how nice my teeth look.
I have also had several root canals; never felt a thing and their after care is second to none. When we moved away from the area for a short time my family and have had other dentists comment on the quality of Grahams work, and his fantastic reputation within the profession. I would not go anywhere else."
‘Thank you’, does not begin to capture my appreciation for Graham’s recent treatment and preservation of my natural teeth. Following a diagnosis and treatment plan, from another dentist, I felt very uncomfortable and so I approached him for a second opinion. Not only was he able to preserve my damaged natural teeth for another year, when the restorative work was completed, I saved £2,000 on my first quote.
To Graham and Sam, I offer my sincere thanks for the care that you both extended to me. I feel very comfortable and confident in the good hands of people who prioritise preservation over premature dental replacement, extraction or expensive and unnecessary solutions.
I wouldn’t say I’m comfortable in clinical settings i.e. GP surgeries and Dentists but I decided I needed too sort my teeth out. Graham Wilding was the man. After and Initial Consultation, including ‘before ad after’ prediction models, a date was set. It was seamless and painless. Now I have got the smile I should have had years ago.
John, Great Eccleston. 17 October 2020
I’ve given in to vanity and had my teeth done to shade 1. Now, I rarely give recommendations but cosmetic dentist Graham Wilding at Poulton is a master. He’s quiet, gentle and, after 35 years of giving people a perfect smile, he’s a perfectionist - plus a lot more reasonable cost than I feared.
