Absolutely amazing dentist, I rung them up in the morning in a dramatic flap. They booked me in that day and helped me in every way they could. Best dentist I have ever had experience with. Happy I found them and very happy to have registered with them to be a patient !

Dr Tony did a fantastic job of composite bonding and gum contouring for me. All staff were helpful and polite during every visit I made. I would definitely recommend this dentist.
I contacted Start Smiling as I wanted to close the gaps on my teeth. From beginning to end the experience was professional, painless and the whole place had a real family vibe.I couldn't be happier with the outcome, my teeth are unbelievably better and look amazing!Special mention to Rhonda as she always went above and beyond to make sure I was happy and knew exactly what I was doing if I had any questions.Have recommended to friends who have also had the same treatments and they are just as happy!Only place to go if you want the perfect smile!

I am thrilled, in my early sixties, to have invested in a Smile Makeover with Dr Tom at Start Smiling! I discovered the practice when researching Aesthetic Dentistry Awards and the accolades won by this talented team galvanized me into action! My initial fear of being judged vain was allayed at the very first consultation, when I came away believing that beautiful teeth are not solely the privilege of the young!From the outset, Dr Tom was confident he could achieve my perfect smile and in less than a year (and it would have been considerably less were it not for lockdown), he has delivered on his promise!The work required was greater than I expected but the process faster than I ever imagined! Each step of the treatment was carefully explained and all charges detailed in a clear and transparent quotation. I felt safe, comfortable and pain-free at all times.Despite unexpected challenges along the way, Dr Tom remained calm, focused and driven in his pursuit for perfection! After one particularly arduous session, he called later in the evening to check on my well-being, a gesture so typical of a friendly practice, priding itself on customer care. Thanks to Dr Tom’s dedication, patience and meticulous skills, I am delighted to finally be smiling a very natural and beautiful, perfect smile!I’ve been told I look ten years younger, and that’s a compliment that can only be attributed to the fantastic team at Start Smiling! The service I’ve received from everyone at the practice has been outstanding; their kindness, support and professionalism, reassuring at even the most daunting of appointments. I’ve always had a warm welcome and come away feeling truly valued as a patient.Needless to say, I’ve entrusted the future care of my teeth to Start Smiling!If you’re looking for expert dental treatment, I highly recommend them! You’ll be in safe hands and it’s likely to be the best investment you ever make!

The entire team at Start Smiling, Ingatestone are outstanding! From entering and interacting with the staff at reception to my dentist (Dr Tony) - I couldn't have had a better experience! I was extremely nervous when I first went to have my braces put in but everyone at Start Smiling made me feel at ease, celebrated each little victory with me and were just extremely supportive and they were very patient and answered all my questions and addressed all my concerns - I constantly felt in the best possible hands! Even throughout Covid, they were in touch constantly and made sure I was okay and despite the delay due to lockdown, my braces still came off within the estimated timeframe!I cannot thank you all enough for the best experience and I would highly recommend Start Smiling, Ingatestone to all those who would like any dental treatment that they offer!xx

I contacted Start Smiling in June, having lost a veneer on the first day of Lockdown in March, I was more than keen to get some help in rectifying this and replacing the other veneers I had.Following an informative Skype consultation with Tony I decided to book my face-to-face consultation with him.From the moment I first walked into this professional establishment I felt welcome and at ease, each member of staff I came into contact with had a friendly, welcoming face.Following this consultation I decided to proceed with what was going to be quite a journey to regain my confidence in my smile. Due to being given medication when a baby the enamel on my front teeth, both top and bottom, never developed correctly. I had previously had the top teeth corrected with veneers, which were more than ready for replacement and I had always wanted something done about my lower teeth. Tony offered his advice and I went ahead.Treatment started in July, I had 7 visits in total my final visit being the end of October. Each visit I was made to feel as comfortable as possible and even after a 4hour long appointment I left still knowing I had made the right choice and more than happy with how the treatment was going. I never left the practice looking anything but presentable, the temporary fitment provided when my old veneers were removed was nothing short of amazing.Procedures at each appointment were performed with care and everything was fully explained.Tony was always on hand with any concerns or queries I had, a mere e-mail away, he always responded the same day and put my mind at total ease.Each time I visited the staff welcomed me by my name and with a happy, friendly demeanour - making me feel like their only patient.I will be staying with Tony and the Start Smiling gang for future dental check-ups and treatment, the hour-long drive there and back for me is more than worth it.I honestly cannot recommend Tony and the team highly enough.... I can indeed “Start Smiling”.

Tony was great, couldn't be happier with what he did.
I honestly couldn't reccomend Dr Tony Aneiros and his team any higher. I have been having some work done since 2018 and for the entire time that I have been attending the practice my treatment has been excellent. It has always been calm and I haven’t felt rushed like I have previously experienced at other dentists. Dr Aneiros really lived up to the ‘pain free’ claim that they make - I was comfortable throughout my treatments and he consistently explained everything in advance. If I was a nervous patient I think this would definitely be the place to go! He also pays close attention to detail and I always felt that I was in the care of a perfectionist!I also didn't feel pressured like I have been at other dentists (where it felt like I was dealing with salesmen), and instead I have always felt that I was given honest advice which really does make a difference.I couldn’t be happier with my treatment and I would happily recommend Dr Aneiros and the team I have been seeing to my family and friends!

Absolutely fantastic experience going to see Tom and team. I have always disliked my teeth after having an accident and reconstruction when i was a teenager. 20 years later this was the best decision i have ever made. The attention to detail has been truly amazing and every single person in the practice makes you feel welcome and comfortable. Today was my final appointment after 12 months of work and i couldn't be happier. I work with children and families and now have the confidence to be smiling and talking without the need to try and hide my teeth.

Amazing! I've had my teeth cleaned by Alison for over 5 years now, she makes you feel so comfortable and goes through all the steps during the clean. Exceptional service and always gives good oral hygiene self care advice to keep your teeth clean in-between visits.Also, Dr Tom’s knowledge and expertise is outstanding! I highly recommend Start Smiling for keeping your teeth in perfect condition.

Dr Tom Sealey replaced my old upper veneers and did a first-class job. Dr Tom addressed my concerns honestly and in detail when responding to my emails and during my consultations. Dr Tom works meticulously every step of the way, and I am delighted with the final result. Kudos to Simon (the technician) for my natural-looking veneers. Dr Tom and Simon collaborated closely to create my perfect smile. I am also grateful to the dental nurses, practice manager and friendly receptionists. Thanks to the dental hygienists, I have learnt how to take better care of my oral health. Start Smiling provide an all-round top quality service and experience.

I have been going to start smiling for more than 10 and had mainly required the hygienist and checkups.Unfortunately I had a serious accident and damaged my teeth and gums to such an extent that I required a lot of dental work that was ongoing for over a year. This work was carried out by Tony and he had to reconstruct my gums which included a graft. I also required a brace and veneers. During this time I had regular visits with Alison who has guided me through my oral hygiene. I am a very nervous patient but every visit to Start Smiling was totally pain free and all the staff were kind and caring. I cannot thank everyone enough at Start Smiling for giving me back my smile and confidence.

Excellent professional service.
OMG cannot believe how lucky I have been to find Tom and his colleagues - I am a very very nervous patient, I have been terrified of the dentist all of my life, to the detriment of my teeth. I heard about START SMILING through a friend as I was at my wits end and needed loads of work done.I have just finished a six month programme with the team which included crowns, bridges braces and Veneers!!!!! I had sedation for some of the lengthy appointments which the practise organised fo me. Every single member of the team from receptionists to my amazing dentist TOM were so kind and patient with me and literally called me the next day after every appointment to make sure I was OK. My fear of the dentist is definitely subsiding and I feel confident to now keep up hygienist and prevention appointments which is something I haven't done for over 40 years. Oh....and nearly forgot my smile looks FAB xxxx so thankyou so much to everyone at Start Smiling.

I have recently moved into the area and was recommended to get in contact with Start Smiling. I only joined them a month ago but have nothing but positive things to say. Tony and his colleagues are a very friendly team and you feel at ease when in the practice. They are very thorough and provide and fantastic service throughout. I have recently had some composite bonging work and whitening treatment with my teeth and have been exceptionally happy with the results. In turn, I have recommended my wife and some friends to join up!Terry Farr, Mountnessing

Amazing team lead by a very skillful cosmetic dentist and supported by a friendly and welcoming reception staff .A sterling service all around from an award winning practice. Thank you

If like me you’re a nervous patient, then this is the dental practice for you.All of the staff are so kind and friendly.Pam on reception always welcomes you like a old friend.Tony my dentist is very gentle and patient and Natalie and Ciara the higenest are always so kind and ensure treatment is carried out at my pace and in a pain free manor.My teeth have never looked and felt this good.
I cannot begin to explain how pleased I am with the outcome of my personalised treatment plan carried out by the team at Start Smiling. I am more confident, smile more, am willing to have more photos taken and am proud to share the journey with whoever will listen! The comments from family and friends make every hurdle worth it and when I see my teeth in the mirror I still have to remind myself…they are mine!Previous experiences had left me extremely nervous about having dentistry work done; the thought of surgery, needles, an implant, veneers and braces (again) filled me with horror. However, I can honestly say, with the support of all of the team, I really should not have worried anywhere near as much as I initially did.Dr Tony and Kira were amazing and were there for me with whatever I needed to know, including follow up calls after appointments. I had received some great work done by Tony in another surgery several years ago and I trusted him, so I found his new practice online and travelled 20 miles each way because I knew that the level of service would be nothing but excellent!Every step of the journey was explained, before during and after. I would say the conversations were transparent and this reduced my anxiety about the treatment I was having. The office staff were also brilliant, a massive thanks to Pam and all the others in offering support, at times even sitting with me before or in between treatments to reassure me. My major phobia is of needles; however, this was not a problem as Tony offered me a numbing agent, which meant I experienced no pain during injections and therefore no longer had to worry about this.The whole practice has such a family feel and many of the team know my first name, something you do not often get these days, this all added to the personalised touch that was given at Start Smiling. A massive thank you to you all for going above and beyond at every point in the journey.Tom Lawson

Dr Tom is by far the best dentist I’ve ever had! He did great work on my smile ahead of my wedding last year (straightened, whitened and shaped) and now I won’t go anywhere else. The hygienists are also fab!

Always been petrified of going to the dentist and avoided going for years, then finally, I plucked up the courage. I came to Start Smiling as had been recommended. I am so pleased I did, I have been seeing Tony and his team who completely put me at ease and been very patient. Tony has completely transformed my smile, I now have lovely straight gleaming teeth and I am no longer nervous. Pam on reception is also very lovely. I 100% recommend Start Smiling Ingayestone.

I have recently visited Start Smiling for my regular hygienist appointment and as always left the surgery with not only clean teeth but the reassurance that I’m being given the best advice possible to help keep my teeth and gums healthy. Being a Diabetic it’s important I look after my gums as well as myself and feel the whole team at Start smiling are fully trained in giving me as much help and information as possible.The whole team at Start Smiling are very friendly and will always go out of their way to make sure you are comfortable and at ease.The tv to watch whilst having treatment makes it even more relaxing.Keep up the good work guys and I can’t wait for my next appointment. 😁 Peter
16:32 24 Aug 18
Had my teeth cleaned recently by Alison the hygienist. Not only did my teeth feel amazing afterwards, she also went the extra mile to really explain to me what I could do to improve my oral health. An all round enjoyable (and painfree!) dental experience - will definitely be returning!
15:57 24 Aug 18
At start smiling the practice is always welcoming and comforting. Staff members are always helpful, in particular Kira Edwards who always has the nicest smile and friendly face. The practise is very highly thought of and I would highly recommend.
19:52 23 Aug 18
Going to the dentist is now a positive experience. Excellent team and highly recommended
19:47 23 Aug 18
First class treatment from a lovely team of people. They make you feel so welcome and the practice has a nice homely feel, not cold and clinical like some practices I have been to
