Just a few words about the Franklin House Dental practice.
I have been a patient at the Frankin House Dental Practice since 1978 and my Daughter since 1982.

That in itself must say something. I would highly recommend the Practice to anyone. The staff always make you feel welcome when you walk in.

When I first came to the Practice I was very nervous, but was soon made to feel at ease. The dentists are very
understanding of people who are frightened of treatment and
do their best to reassure them.

I used to be scared stiff of needles but, thanks to Hardeep and the girls, I no longer am.

I can honestly say that anyone who comes to the Practice
will not regret it


Mr Walia, Just a short note to say a very big thank for all you help, advice and support in relation to Wills teeth. It has been so important for Will to be confident with his teeth, and following a visit to the orthodontist last week hopefully we will achieve the desired end result.

Once again thank you. Kind regards

Julie Robson

I'm a nervous patient but I feel completely at ease with Hardeep and the girls.

Hayley Honeysett

Fantastic place! Was a nervy patient and hadn't been to the dentist for years, made to feel very welcome and was put at ease with my nervousness. 
Very professional and friendly. Highly, highly recommended

Andy Gibbons

Excellent service with a smile..

Being a regulator commuter from Kent to London, it's always tricky organising a dentist appointment. For me, Franklin House is a stones throw from Gillingham Station which allows me to get off, have treatment, and continue my journey to the South Coast. Fast, friendly and extremely professional service tailored to my busy schedule


This is the best Dental Practice I have ever used!
Hardeep is fantastic with the kids and I would always recommend this place to anyone.

Amanda Gray

Fantastic dental practice, I have a fear of dentists they really make you feel comfortable and at ease. I took my 18 month daughter who did not want her teeth to be checked. Hardeep was really patient with her made her laugh, played with her and managed to check her teeth. Would definitely recommend this surgery to anyone.

Raj Dhindsa

Highly recommend, friendly and professional all the time :-)

Emma Allen

I used Franklin House as a child and now take my children there, I would highly recommend

Dan Butler

After an awful experience with a previous dentist I cannot thank Hardeep for his kindness patience when you are nervous. The whole team are wonderful.


I did not feel any pain, even though I had two teeth removed to make way for my new braces.

The staff were really friendly and explained everything.

Franklin House is the best ........

Maya Brooks-Kajona

After searching awhile for a dentist, I remembered I had passed your practice some time back and decided to go in.

The dentist was very nice and answered my questions.
Thank you.


Dear Franklin house Dental Practice,

We have nothing but the highest praise and confidence in your practice. Plenty of parking, a warm welcome, a cosy waiting room and excellent care and treatment make this surgery the best we have ever attended. My wife has had to suspend her ongoing treatment due to other health issues, but looks forward to resuming her visits as soon as is possible. 

As mentioned, my wife has found the treatment outstanding, it is explained in fullest detail to both of us with options
given if available.Every consideration is given for the patients comfort, The dental staff are extremely professional, courteous and friendly. The same applies to the reception and administration staff.

The only downside we could possibly offer is that I feel like falling asleep on the very comfortable sofa in the surgery.

Leslie and Carole Allman

My name is GK and I visited your surgery on 23rd December due to a crown  breaking.
My visit was last minute as my regular Dentist could not see me until after Christmas, so I was very pleased that you Dentist was available. He was very helpful and repaired my crown.
I have already recommended your practise to my Daughter and I will be visiting again.
PS: an added bonus was that all your staff and dentists were in fancy dress for Christmas and there was a very happy atmosphere, which helps nervous patients ,like me , to feel at ease. Many Thanks

I had not been to the dentist for 8 years due to a dental phobia, one day the practice came up in my news feed and I commented that this as the practice that started my phobia when I was 18. 
I had a very nice message back telling me that the practice had changed hands and I should come in for a consultation. 
I came in and saw Hardeep who listened to my history and fears and he was great, really understanding he put me at ease. I came back for x rays and a clean and again he was fantastic so very patient with me. I had to come back again and have a tooth removed and it was a very difficult extraction, it didn't feel like I was a problem and couldn't have been any more caring and understanding of my fears. 
I am so happy with my progress in over coming my fears if dentists and that is all down to Hardeep and staff at the Franklin rooms dental surgery.
I can not thank Hardeep enough

Tracy Stroud 

I would happily recommend you to my friends. 

Very happy with the service, especially being such a nervous patient. 

Mrs Thonas

I am a patient with Franklin House Dental Practice for a few years and have treatment on a regular basis. The Practice had been recommended to me by my boss at the time when I needed urgent treatment and had never have any regrets to go there.
I cannot thank enough Dr Hardeep Walia for excellent care and high standard treatment he gives to his patients.
If you are a very nervous about dental treatment or have a phobia like my partner, this Practice is the right place for you. My partner has a phobia of dentists from his childhood and had not been to the dentist for many-many years. My last visit to Franklin House and outstanding outcome encouraged my partner to visit Dr Walia for treatment. I am very grateful to Dr Walia for his patience and time he spent talking and reassuring my partner.
The result is excellent - my partner has a Hollywood smile now! We could not even dream that so many years of anxiety and fear could be melted down in a few minutes and all problems could be solved so easily.

Thank you very much, Doctor, nurses and receptionists!

Excellent care and service!

Definitely recommend Franklin House Dental Surgery!

Svetlana Collings

I am a nervous, anxious patient who had a tooth extracted by Dr Hardeep Walia recently. He put me at ease and, before I knew it, he was telling me it was all done! I would recommend Hardeep to anyone who is at all anxious about seeing a dentist for treatment.

Sandra Davey

The best dentist I've ever used; I've had a lot of work done on my teeth due to an injury, so have visited many!
Always very clean, the staff are wonderful and so I would highly recommend.

Yvonne Lawrence

Ah found this so must say
Dr Rod King is THE best dentist EVER and he can never be allowed to retire. Im sure I speak for all of us who have had the best treatment EVER from this kind sensitive caring wonderful man. I was so very scared of the dentist and couldnt even have the chair laid back until I joined Dr Kings list and now I cant wait for my 6 month check ups. He is without doubt the very best of dentists and men.
Bless you Dr King
May there always be work for your hands to do.
May your purse always hold a coin or two.
May the sun always shine upon your window pane.
May a rainbow be certain to follow each rain.
May the hand of a friend always be near to you and
May God fill your heart with gladness to cheer you.
Love from me and my family O'Connell's and Williams
