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.

Always been nervous about visiting dental practices but the team at Amber Valley have always managed to keep me calm on my appointments. A lovely practice with very nice patient staff.

Somer Cotes Dental Practice

350-352 Lower Somercotes, Somercotes, Alfreton DE55 4LP, UK – 01773 609543

Is a second time when i been there and is brilliant, really nice staff and professional job. I see some people on here saying been waiting for 40 minutes, my appointment was for 15:00 and 15:05 I was in. The dentist is really nice,i had extraction and i didn't feel any pain or anything. Really good job. I really recommended!

Had previous really bad experience with a emergency dentist in Derby. This made me terrified about visiting a dentist. I wasn’t going for regular check ups. I then had a problem crop up with a previous filling becoming lose and pressing on a nerve. I was in agony. But I needed to get something done. On recommendation I contacted (terrified) Somercotes dental practise, the Receptionist Adele or Abbie I think it was instantly put me at ease when I explained my situation. When arriving for the appointment I had booked myself in with the receptionist. Who had long dark hair up in a ponytail, I think it was the lady I spoke to on the phone. She told me not to worry and that everything was going to be fine. I think she could tell I was worked up and was getting a little upset. I had a seat and then was called through. The receptionist had a quiet word with the dentist and explained that I was pretty worried which I thought was a really nice thing to do. I went into the room where I had a little cry (being an idiot) I was handed tissues and allowed to calm down. Then the treatment: I didn’t feel a thing! I was talked through everything that was happening. And regularly asked if I was ok by both the dentist and the dental nurse. I felt very welcome from the minute I entered the practise and very well looked after for the whole experience. I now feel better about going and will book regularly for check ups. Thanks Somercotes Dental Practise

Refine Specialist Dental Care

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

A 22 stone bloke with major dental phobia after a previous dental surgeries inability to extract a canine meant avoiding dentists for a long long time. I was referred to refine and spoke to a young dr / surgeon. He left me feeling relaxed, i knew i needed 7 extractions and he made an action plan, 3 teeth the next visit for the complex ones and 4 the visit after. Well i went today for the 3 to be extracted, he was very professional, constantly talking, reassuring me and letting me know what he was doing and ensuring i was totally numb. I am now home still numb, 3 teeth lighter than an hour ago. Expecting some after pain, but very relaxed. I would not hesitate in recommending revive, their patient customer service is 2nd to none and made a traumatic situation bearable, and i am now confident enough to return next week for the final 4 to be extracted. If you are nervous or afraid of dentists, book a check up with these guys and they will alleviate your fears, the patient care is really tremendous. I am eternally grateful.

Very polite staff. Fantastic treatment (tooth extraction) I never felt a thing.

Somercotes Medical Centre

Somercotes Medical Centre, 22 Nottingham Rd, Somercotes, Alfreton DE55 4JJ, UK – 01773 602141

I can always get an appointment when I need one. The doctors are very professional they listen to you fully and are very caring. The nurses are friendly and reassuring. Me and my family have had nothing but support whenever we have visited

Having moved from derby where (no disrespect intended) every doctor is foreign and do their best to push you out of the door, I made an appointment with doctor mclochlan (??) I was suffering terribly with depression linked to alcoholism and cannabis misuse. Hands down the most supportive understanding and helpful doctor I have ever seen she gave me the support and time I needed to gather my head and get healthy again. 6 months later I am now clean of both of my addictions, no longer on anti depressants and in full time employment. I have also seen Dr Dowd and Dr heafield which were both equally as brilliant as Dr mclochlan(??). All things considered this surgery is an example of when the nhs works absolutely fantastic. I owe Dr mclochlan my life and so much more. Thank you so much .

NHS Direct is now NHS 24. Just dial 111 to speak to a professional or click the link below for there self help website. Lots of really useful info but keep clear of heart surgery! If in doubt ask your GP or call 111. Good luck.

Local Restaurants & Places to Eat around Alfreton


50 King St, Alfreton DE55 7DD, UK – 01773 830690

Really tasty food but the portions were huge. Easily one of the best "Indian" restaurants I've ever been to. Couldn't finish my main as I'd had a starter and there was no chance of dessert. Seemed to be popular with the locals. Really friendly service.

I use this place regularly and in preference to a closer takeaway (Jeer a) A bit shabby, could do with a fresh coat of paint, a small refurbishment maybe but boy is the food top notch!! I compare to takeaways in Rusholme and it stands on a level par. The portions are a decent sized and are perfectly cooked. The quality doesn't diminish at weekends in either sit in or takeaway. All of the relevant food hygiene certs are present. On your first visit don't be put off by its looks!
