I had a great experience at Bank view clinic. The staff are all very helpful and friendly. They are efficient and highly qualified in delivering a superb care. I had a procedure with my teeth and it was really great and different from what I had before for the same problem, pain free all through and Thomas , the dentist , was extraordinary and beyond in his skills, reassuring the patient & explaining everything in details. I would highly recommend themread more

My kids attended for a routine check up today. Great, friendly service as ever from Khalid. If your child is apprehensive about visiting the Dentist then do visit Khalid as his calm and reassuring manner makes all the difference. Highly recommended .

A dentist I totally trust, had implants, veneers and crowns done now over 10 years ago and still as strong as ever. Khalid always has time to chat/advise and now my baby boy has seen him twice in his first year to get used to the positive experience of a dentist. Again he took time to explain baby dental care! The whole team is always positive which I think it spreads to the customers ... and he never runs late !read more

Well where do I start. I suppose at the beginning would be good.Here goes.15/04/2019.... Finally after avoiding the dentist for many years I plucked up the courage and called Bank View. Rather nervously (In fact very nervously) the first appointment was in the diary.To be honest I didn't sleep well a few days before as I was still in the days of old dentistry (the dreaded gas mask and all that).Anyway with my partner holding my hand for support I was dragged into Bank View for the first time shortly after the phone call.It was here where I met Khalid for the first time. He took the time out and gave me a through inspection and finally we had a plan, a plan to bring my confidence and self esteem back.After numerous visits (I finally did pluck up the courage to go to the dentist without my partner holding my hand 🙂 )I have walked out of Bank View today with the confidence the courage and self esteem I was lacking (10/12/2019).The staff the dental nurses the hygienist the whole surgery are amazing.My advise would be don't avoid the dentist, as I did. As after the last few months I do feel as comfortable in the dentist chair as I do sat at home on my sofa.Many thanks to you all and have a great Xmas and New year.... You are all game changers.Well recommended.I Hudson.read more

I have been a patient at Bank View Smile Studios for nearly 2 years, the treatment and customer service I receive is always excellent. Would definitely recommend to anyone who is nervous about attending the dentist as their motto is “calm and gentle dentistry”.

Thomas and his assistant Claire were fantastic, they made each of my visits to the dentist very comfortable and fear free. As a child I used to hate visiting the dentist but this is the first dentist I have been to that has been amazing. Thomas was fantastic with my braces and made me feel better with my braces which I was dreading. I would highly recommend them to everyoneread more

Dr Khalid’s a great dentist my whole family love him. He’s done such a fantastic job with my teeth and got rid of a problem that had been bugging me for a decade. The staff at the practice are great too. So friendly and welcoming from the moment you walk into the surgery. No wonder you receive all them awards and get recognised nationally.Keep it up!read more

I've just completed my work experience at Bank view Dental. Overall , this practice can definitely be recognised for their welcoming and professional atmosphere through their interactions with patients and colleague around them. This experience has secured my motivation to study dentistry in the future which was reinforced from Dr Khalid and Dr Thomas's helpful guidance along the course.Many Thanks for this incredible experienceread more
I came for work experience, Dr Khalid was eager to teach about dentistry and provide a challenge and i learnt a lot which would benefit my uni application.
Great service all round. Khalid is great with the kids, has a very understanding approach with them. His mannerisms are second to none.The whole atmosphere of the practice is welcoming and professional.Thank you and keep up the great work.5 stars well deserved!

Bank View Smile Studios is by far, the most professional and hard- working practice that i have attended. It was a real privilege to have a weeks worth of experience here as i was able to witness first hand the level of care and diligence that this practice provides. I saw how Khalid treated his patients with respect and ensured that they knew exactly what was happening with their teeth during the course of their treatment. Home care hygiene is emphasised a lot in which Khalid uses interdental brushes, flosses and 3D models to demonstrate to all patients, young and old, to what they can do to help improve their oral health. The dentist is also supported by incredible staff members that are very kind and friendly. I liked how they always interacted with the patients at reception to make them feel comfortable and at ease. Especially in cases of embarrassed or anxious patients, Khalid and his team were able to relate to them and establish a common ground where the patient is confident in the practice’s abilities to create a happier, more relaxed version of themselves. This practice is most definitely suitable for all ages and i would highly recommend as my own experience at Bank View Smile Studios was absolutely wonderful!read more

I cant thank Khalid and the whole team at Bank View enough for all their amazing work. From the first moment I walked in the place every one of them were fantastic.I was after getting braces to sort my wonky teeth out for my upcoming wedding. I found Bank View through NHS choices and they had a very good reputation. Even though I wasn't in the immediate area, I still felt it was the right choice and I wasn't wrong in my judgment.I went into the process just wanting straight teeth, that's all I wanted. I left with not only a newfound appreciation for my overall oral hygiene but a slight passion/obsession over it.This was all down to Khalid and his meticulous approach to not only the physical aspect of dentistry but the education aspect to it all. At no point did I ever feel pressured or nervous about any of the treatment, even though I was no fan of the dentist.Ultimately, I cannot recommend Bank View highly enough.read more
If you are embarrassed about the state of your teeth or nervous about visiting a dentist, I would definitely recommend an appointment at Bank View Smile Studios.Calm gentle and non- judgemental dentistry is what is promised and that is exactly what is delivered along with a professional but friendly, welcoming and caring service by all the team . They are all brilliant and put you at your ease as soon as you walk through the door. I first came to the surgery a few months ago after, for various reasons, not having visited a dentist for about 8 years. My teeth had deteriorated badly and as things got worse , the greater my anxiety about visiting a dentist had become. I was ashamed of the appalling state of my teeth and infected gums and the reaction of the dentist was one of my main fears. It really helped that, having finally plucked up the courage to ring and explain that I was nervous and would like to speak with someone before I saw the dentist, I was given an appointment for that day to go to speak with Kathy one of the smile advisors. Having listened to my concerns, Kathy suggested that it would be helpful for me to meet the dentist straight away. That was exactly right for me as it meant that I was enabled to overcome one of my main anxieties at that first appointment. As promised Dr Khalid didn't criticise me at all and at no time during my treatment was I made to feel uncomfortable or judged for the state of my teeth. Quite the opposite, he showed understanding, patience and care at all times. That was so important to me. He is a very skillful dentist. He carried out the necessary extractions quickly and painlessly despite the fact that many of my teeth were broken down to gum level. He very skilfully restored a tooth that I had thought beyond repair and closed a gap between my 2 lower front teeth which had been a source of embarrassment for some time. I knew I was going to need dentures and was concerned about how they might look but Dr Khalid and his technician have crafted dentures which I look really natural. I am very impressed that he was able to do that with very little evidence of how my teeth had looked originally! Quite a challenge! It is an added bonus that the colour of my teeth has also been lightened.Throughout my treatment I have felt comfortable with and very confident in Dr Khalid. He always explained what he was going to do and the outcome has been just as he promised.Before coming to the practice, I had been embarrassed when speaking to people and would always try not show my teeth when I smiled. l now feel much more confident in speaking to people and it is lovely to be able to smile properly again and, also, not to have the worry of what will happen next time I visit the dentist. Thank you so much to all the team - you're all brilliant! I wouldn't normally write such a long detailed review but I just hope it might help someone who is perhaps feeling the same way that I was to take that step to ring and make an appointment. I'm certainly very glad that I did and only wish that I had done it a long time ago.read more

Im currently doing a work experience placement at Bank View Smiles Studios which has allowed me to witness first hand the remarkable service which is on offer at this practice. Everyone is welcoming and genuinely cares about each patient, making for a wonderful atmosphere. Not to mention the highly skilled dentists who not only provide an easy, comfortable experience for the patient but give quality care that i have not seen at any other dentist. I cannot recommend this practice enough and i am thankful for the opportunity to do my placement here.read more

My first visit was an emergency appointment due to a gum infection. I was extremely nervous due to previous bad experiences when I was younger. I saw Dr Khalid Master who prescribed antibiotics and took x rays. I needed to have two extractions and worried until my next appointment. I can quite honestly say he is the best dentist I could ever have wished to meet. Extremely professional and most patient and caring. I had my extractions on a Monday which were totally pain free and returned three days later for an impression and one day later I have a fitting which has exceeded all my expectations. Again all pain free and for the first time in ages I can smile with confidence. I am absolutely delighted and can not recommend Khalid and his team highly enough. Fantastic service.read more

I have recently finished my braces treatment at this practice. Dr Khalid, the dentist, was amazing and was thorough in explaining the procedures and made me feel very much at ease. I am absolutely over the moon with my smile and as a result of the fantastic results achieved, and the friendly atmosphere created by the dentists as well as the receptionists, I have decided to join the scheme as a private patient. I cannot recommend this place enough to anybody who is wanting to undergo treatment or is wanting to join. Thank you for allowing me to smile with confidence again.read more

Bank View Smile Studios is an amazing dental practice. I am a biomedical science student, who is hoping to start my graduate entry Dentistry course next September and BVSS kindly gave me the opportunity me to carry out my work experience at the practice. I am observing for a week, however in just the last two days I have learnt more than I could have imagined. I have been working with Dr Khalid Master and dental nurse Hailey and I can honestly say that their work on the different procedures is tremendous. The techniques used are very advanced and that is why the best results are achieved and the patients leave the room smiling. One of the new methods used ensures anaesthetic injections are pain-free - which I thought was impossible! The full dental team are very friendly and informative. Dr Khalid explains each treatment to every patient in detail and the advice he gives is invaluable. They definitely live up to their logo- calm and gentle dentistry. I hope that in time, I will also be a qualified dentist, who provides this high level of care. I will certainly be joining the practice myself. I would highly recommend this practise to everyone, I am sure that you won't be disappointed!read more

Absolutely excellent dentist. Dr khalid made me feel at ease. Has given me an amazing smile and given me so much confidence. Excellent staff, so friendly but also high quality work. Super happy 😃
I'd like to thank Khalid, Thomas and everyone in the Bank view team to give me the wonderful opportunity to take part in work experience. It was a great experience and made me even more sure that I would like to pursue a career in Dentistry.Over the course of the week, I was able to spend many hours with both Dr Thomas and Khalid listening to them, and talking with them about Dentistry. More importantly I learnt that at BVSS the patient comes first above all. It was incredibly rewarding to be able to watch make a patient feel less intimidated by the dentist and get rid of the stigma that 'the dentist is an awful place to be.'As one patient put it Bank View smile studios is a hidden gem in Blackburn. So I would definitely recommend Bank View smile studios to everybody and I have actually joined the practice my self due to the incredible service that is being provided at BVSS. Thank you Khalid and Thomas for the amazing opportunity for this wonderful experience.read more

As a work experience student I witnessed many patients who were very satisfied with the treatment plans provided by their trusted dentist. Patients were willing to travel large distances to get treated because they believed that the dentist has the best idea for what type of treatment should be carried out. I even saw 3 Patients who travelled all the way from Edinburgh in Scotland for their treatment today. All dental staff and patients were very friendly.read more

Excellent practice and the best dentist I have been to, I would like to say thanks to all staff at the practice. The receptionists and dental nurses very helpful and friendly. The practice tried their best and fitted me in for a very fast emergency appointment before my holiday to re-bond a failed tooth Restoration. I would like to add that the failed restoration work was not undertaken by this practice, this was done by a different practice. Khalid did an excellent job of repairing the restoration taking time to prepare and also ensure excellent fit and finish and also that all bonding material was removed after to allow for flossing and cleaning. All work being done was very well explained at all stages. I would highly recommend this dentist to friends and family.read more

I am very pleased with the service and advice received from the Practise.I had slightly crooked teeth ( two of my teeth were behind the others and out of line ) which I was self conscious about and braces wouldn’t be covered under the NHS, however the dentist used a material to layer on top of these two teeth to give the illusion of my teeth being in line with my others. I am extremely happy and very pleased with the outcome and I have utmost confidence in the staff who are always helpful and understanding. Excellent practise overall.read more
