You might be interested in the Financial Section on this site. Banks, like Building Societies, often have a restricted range of services - and are notoriously conservative when investing your money. This usually results in very low rates of return. Our financial section covers other Financial Institutions, Mortgages, Investment Consultants, Credit & Finance Companies - and Crowd Funding!

Amber Valley Dental Practice

28A Pentrich Rd, Swanwick, Alfreton DE55 1BQ, UK – 01773 540648

I was so nervous as it had been a long while since I had been to a dentist after a bad experience. It was fine. The receptionist was lovely and friendly and helpful, the dental nurse was reassuring and the dentist filled me with confidence for my treatment. I should have come here a long while ago.

Visited this practice first in 2010 and I was quite indifferent with the service but having said that, the past couple of years I cannot fault the level of service I have received. Lovely people working there, been in pain a couple of times and they have always seen me on the same day!!!! Would recommend to others if you are looking for a good practice, choose this one.

Refine Specialist Dental Care

Alfreton Primary Care Centre, Church St, Alfreton DE55 7AH, UK – 01773 830560

I would totally recommend this place. I am terrified of dentists and had to have 4 removed today, he gave me anaesthetic and told me if I was in any pain at all let him know. Then he left it to settle pain wise then continued, he removed them rapidly. He totally made me feel calm and gave me support throughout. Now I am not worried at all about going for my next appointment for another removal. Total respect to him!!!

As I'm sure is the case with most people, I loath the dentist. However, upon breaking my wisdom tooth it seemed it was time to suck it up and be brave once more. I was referred to Refine by my own dentist and found the whole process to be smooth and painless (as much is possible). Gurdeep was outstanding, a true professional and a credit to the industry. I was kept informed of exactly what was happening and he was quick and clean with the procedure, minimising any discomfort. If you usually hate going to the dentist and are looking for one to trust, take it from the worlds #1 chicken, Gurdeep and refine are outstanding!
