Patient Survey

At Diamond Court Dental Practice we constantly strive to improve the service that we provide to our patients. We strongly value all forms of feedback and would be most grateful if you would spare just a few minutes to participate in our annual patient survey.

The results of the survey are completely anonymous and, in previous years, the survey has led to significant changes to the practice and the way in which it is run. This has included the implementation of daily emergency appointments, the installation of automatic doors in our main entrance and cosmetic improvements to the surgeries and waiting room.

Please also find a comments box at the end of the survey which gives you the opportunity to make any additional suggestions or comments about the practice or to expand on any of your answers.

If you have any questions about the survey, please don’t hesitate to contact us at [email protected] or call (01629) 812991.

The survey can be accessed through the following link.  Thank-you very much for your help – it is greatly appreciated!
