After many years of treatment at Rycote including implants and crowns I cannot recommend the service or treatment high enough. I’ve yet to experience any pain during any procedure which is testament to the care and skill of Nick and his team.

Great friendly and reassuring staff. My gums are now in great condition after a year at this surgery. Well worth the price, which is reasonable. I wouldn’t change.

I have been a patient with Nick for seven years. He runs an excellent practice, with staff that are very helpful and professional. His own skills as a dentist are exemplary such that, after having had a range of treatments, including a crown and a tooth implant, I am totally satisfied. I have no hesitation in recommending Nick to my friends and family.

I have been a patient at Rycote House Dental Practice for several years and would highly recommend Nick and his charming team, not only for their excellent patient care and expertise, but also for the extremely friendly and efficient service. Everyone at the practice has my gratitude for making this formerly very nervous patient feel completely at ease

Socrates practice has looked after our teeth for years. This has encompassed both my husband and I (over 50) and our children, who are now married and use them for their family. Throughout the generations they not only have an excellent level of dental care but show great empathy and concern dealing with each family member in a most sensitive way.

Teeth are a great indication of age if not cared for, Socrates have a maintenance and restorative approach and will never, unless absolutely necessary, undertake any work that would impinge on the longevity and health of the natural teeth.

Friends comment on our teeth, we always recommend Socrates, they question as to cost but in our view we have always got excellent value for money as when it is sorted by experts like this it gets done once, properly. We can’t praise them enough, you get one set of natural teeth and they understand that.

We can highly recommend Rycote Dental Practice. Both of us had previously experienced some unpleasant dental visits and in need of some attention we visited Rycote.

Dr Socrates put us at ease with his calm and relaxing manner, whilst explaining the treatment needed. Following our treatment, we continued as regular patients. We did move away from the area 12 years ago but still visit Rycote for regular checks, and work if necessary, despite it being a round trip in excess of 120 miles. In addition to Dr Socrates professional and friendly manner, this is replicated by all staff.

On the recommendation of a friend seven years ago I contacted Rycote House Dental Practice in Aylesbury. I was immediately impressed by the professionalism of Nick Socrates and his team who provide a personal and efficient service. Fears of the dentist’s chair are dispelled when in their care and I have been delighted with my new implants which have been fitted both skilfully and painlessly.

My mother and I have attended Dr. Socrates’ Dental Practice for many years. We have both undergone extensive dental work, check-ups and regular oral hygiene. Dr. Socrates dentistry is excellent and combined with the care and attention from all the staff – visiting the Practice is always a great pleasure.

Pen and paper testimonial

After having my teeth looked after by an excellent dental surgeon for 22 years and moving house I started to look for an equally perfect replacement. I have found Nick Socrates’ Rycote Dental Practice through a Google search. The surgery’s website seemed to be more welcoming and reassuring that any others I’ve looked at.

During my initial appointment I had an extended examination plus a number of X-rays and at the end was presented with a detailed proposed treatment plan with prices. All the way through Nick explained the problems, showed me the X-rays, gave me my options and finally his recommendations. He unquestionably made a lot of effort to find the best and most economical solution for a tricky dental situation (I was contemplating dental implants).

The implants were inserted without any pain or discomfort. Also, after a traumatic and unsuccessful experience of having a root canal at his regular dentist, my husband turned to Nick for help and was offered a knowledgeable and professional solution that put an end to my husband’s continuous pain. Nick Socrates and his staff are all very friendly and accommodating. My husband and I can recommend the Nick Socrates’ Rycote House Dental Practice to anyone with no hesitation.
