I was a patient of this lovely lady when she was in the Cavan dental surgery and I have to say it was fantastic treatment! Pain free root canal almost a year ago and not a single problem since. I would highly recommend her to anyone seeking the best dental care. Noel Thompson

Rachael and the staff of Frazer Dentist deserve more than 5 Stars! The advice, guidance and overall experience I had with them last week has been second to none. It is evident that they have the customers best interests at heart at a very reasonable price. The aftercare service is also brilliant and I would highly recommend this practice to anyone. The relaxed, fresh and modern atmosphere greets you at the entrance and it really has been a pleasure to be a client of theirs! Thomas Whyte

Hi, I would like to say how impressed I am with Frazer Dental. I was a very nervous patient, had to be always sedated and travel an hour to go to dentist which was a nightmare, but since I went to Rachael just 10 mins down the road she made me feel so relaxed I could not believe it. I would highly recommend Rachael and her team to all nervous patients. She’s great. I will be visiting Rachael in the future. Fiona  W.

Girls made my 7 year old so relaxed getting teeth cleaned & getting protective coating!! Highly recommend!! Sara Parge

Had work done here today and to say I hate going to the dentist is an understatement but not any more friendly pain free amazing dentist will never go any were else. Celine Moloney

Have to comment on our visit this evening. Had a terrified 11 year old that was trying really hard to be strong, facing a tooth extraction with an abscess. (Had a really traumatic abscess loaded tooth extraction elsewhere previously). Rachel was really super with Sean, explained everything to him. Definitely well equipped to deal with children. Could not praise her enough!! 1 very happy relieved little boy tonight .pain-free. highly recommend this surgery. 🙂 Elaine Carolan

This lady is the nicest person ever been a very nervous patient and having suffered so bad for along time and going from dentist to dentist this lady had a lot of work to leave me pain free and I was suffering so bad I'd was up night after night she even stayed open on Thursday night till nearly 12 o'clock to try leave me as pain free for my sister’s wedding. If anyone has a serious nervous problem then I can not recommend Rachel highly enough. She is very understanding and you don't feel like she is judging you like some of the dentist’s I've been to. Her nurse and all her staff care is out standing . 5 out of 5. Olivia Marron

Best dentist I’ve ever been to. It’s amazing how a good attitude, a bit of understanding and compassion can change your opinion of something you have feared most of your adult life. It’s a shame really there aren’t more like you. Jessica Browne
