We moved to Devon in 2018 and Pure Dental was recommended by friends, I wanted implants and Jonny and Lizzie have been wonderful.
All the staff are friendly, helpful. It is excellent service, nothing is too much trouble.
Thank you for your wonderful, relaxing attitude. Five Stars!

If a dental visit can be a pleasant experience none could excel the one I experienced at Pure Dental Centre.
Friendly welcome from the reception staff. The waiting room is the most comfortable experience imaginable (Mags and coffee beyond criticism) Dentists most helpful, Interested and of course excellent.

This practice is absolutely brilliant, from when you come in to when you leave you are made welcome and put at ease.
Lovely staff and very professional. Great :)

Excellent service! I am very very pleased with my new dentures. The old ones were 30 years old. These seem to be an improvement.
— Mr H, 12th June 2019
I want to say a big thank you for your patience and kindness towards me when I first attended your practice. I came with a lot of trauma from awful past experiences due to a very bad accident I had age 9. This severely damaged my mouth and teeth. I would hyperventilate and feel sick with anxiety which stopped me going to the dentist.
I then came to Pure Dental and spoke to Jonathan, his nurse and the lovely receptionist who were all amazing and allowed me to take it at my pace and didn’t make me feel like a silly old lady. Today I actually sat through a filling and didn’t freak out, well done to Jonathan and his lovely nurse. You made me feel proud of myself.

Have been in and out of dentists all my life. Finally found one who is caring and understanding.
Would highly recommend Pure Dental. Just had an implant with bridge , a great job and looks great. Fantastic staff who keep you well informed.

I would just like to send my sincere thanks to Nigel after a wisdom tooth extraction last Tuesday. No pain, no discomfort and super fast healing to the affected area! I cant thank him enough for his care and professionalism.

5* Rated
I have just had a lower denture and implant surgery. Jonny was exceptiona all the way through the procedure. Also Lizzie who assisted throughout.
The treatment I received was first class from all the staff. I would highly recommend the practice.
— Mr H, 7th March 2019
I have been a (very nervous) patient of Jonny Lynd for more than 10 years. A few years ago I was fitted with a single tooth denture. This was satisfactory, but a little inconvenient. After much discussion and repeated reassurance re lac of pain etc, I decided to go ahead with a dental implant. I admit to being absolutley terrified, but thank to the gentleness and kindness of Jonny and his nurses I was surprised at how quick and painless the whole procedure is. (Much easier for the patient than a filling) I would not hesitate to request another implant if required. I am grateful to Jonny and his team for their caring attitude and professionalism.
— Mrs M, 7th January 2019
Dear Jon & Dental Nurse,
Just to say many thanks for your patience and kindness and of course my new beautiful filling. I shall be testing it out on a sticky toffee apple sometime soon!!
— Mrs G - September 2017
Dear Tonia,
Just a note to say a very big Thank you for being a lovely hygienist. I was a very nervous patient until I came to see you, as I had had a really bad experience with my last Dentist.
It is always a pleasure to see you and thanks to you I might keep my teeth a little longer!
Keep up the good work - you are brilliant!
— Mrs G - May 2017
Hi Jonny

I just wanted to say thank you for all you have done for me and how much it means.

I have always been very embarrassed and self conscious about my teeth. If anyone got out a camera I would feel a sense of dread and panic and would try and hide in the background. Now, thanks to you, I will be photo bombing at every opportunity! Seriously though, you have given me confidence and a smile I am no longer ashamed of.

Thank you so much.
— Mr O, 19th September 2016
I would like to thank Jonny and his team for the time taken and the care shown during the making of my new chrome partial denture. Prior to becoming a patient at Pure Dental Centre I’d had three plastic ones. They were all ill-fitting, needed gluing in and were extremely uncomfortable. My new chrome one is absolutely amazing! It fits perfectly and has done since the day it was fitted. It is very comfortable and as near to my natural teeth as it is possible for a partial denture to be. I would have no hesitation in recommending these to anyone.
— Mrs H, 25th August 2016
After the work was completed, I can smile with confidence again. It’s been a while!
— Mrs G, 16th August 2015
Just to say thank you very much. Teeth look so much better and I didn’t have to pay a fortune! Makes such a difference to me I am totally thrilled. Pure Dental Centre is so professional and friendly and I’ve recommended lots of my friends and family.
— Mrs L, 11th August 2015
Absolutely fantastic. And everybody is sooo nice!
— Mrs R, 6th August 2015
Pure Dental Centre was recommended to me by a friend. Being very apprehensive of treatment I needed, immediately I felt at ease with understanding and high quality care I was shown. How thrilled and amazed I am with overwhelming results. With outstanding professionalism - perfection of such a high standard makes one feel privileged to be a patient. May I express my gratitude and thanks to each of you.
— Mrs H, 5th August 2015
From the first moment my wife and I entered the “Pure Dental Centre” we were impressed by the genuine warmth of the welcome by the charming, helpful and professional staff. The premises are bright, modern, airy and comfortable. There is ample parking and the centre is conveniently situated.
Our initial consultations and my subsequent treatment was carried out by Jonny Lynd which was professional, proficient and caring.
I would have no hesitation in recommending the superb centre to anyone.
— Mr J, 8th July 2015
I just wanted to say thank you for today. Sadly because of a “bad” experience as a child I was really nervous of having a “local” injection. You made me feel safe & looked after. You and your dental Nurse even managed to make me laugh.
You really are very knowledgeable, kind, caring, a true professional who has restored my faith in Dentists.
Thank you, kind regards as always.
— Mrs C, 5th July 2016
The care and treatment I have had at ‘Pure Dental’ has been very good. Both the dentist and his assistants are cheery and make one feel at ease when you really need it - they make visiting the dentist a good experience - surprisingly!
— Mrs H, 7th April 2016
The car mechanic says sorry mate you will need to fit a new engine control unit or scrap the car. Then the local garage says you had a loose wire; It’s fixed!!
So it was my teeth.....My previous dentist (NHS) took one quick look and said those 3 teeth are loose and you are going to lose them and will need a plate.
So I was in for a penny in for a pound and I now have a dentist I would recommend to anyone.
Ian Berridge greeted me with a reassuring smile that puts you at ease.
What was it that this dental practice could do that the NHS could not achieve?
Firstly I was instantly removed from the NHS conveyor belt which moves inexorably forward;
1 minute 10 second to assess, 4 minutes 25 seconds to prepare and 11 minutes and 4 seconds to carry out the treatment and 24 seconds to fix your next appointment.
Secondly, we chatted to assess what treatment would suit my particular crisis, one of my 2 incisors had decided to come loose and retire early, spoiling my smile.
After a few minutes chatting with Ian he announced he could restore my smile using a novel treatment that I’ll not bore you with but the solution was brilliant and it has worked.
It cost less than a top plate on the NHS but more importantly it was not going to wed me to a life of using Fixodent or similar.
What now? I look forward to my next visit to continue treatment with a dentist who, in my opinion, goes that extra mile for his patients. Five stars definitely.
— Mr R, 1st July 2015
This practice offers a most professional, efficient and courteous service in spacious and friendly surroundings. I would highly recommend it to anyone.
— Mrs I, 17th June 2015
I was most impressed with Jonny’s enthusiasm, knowledge and skill. His attention to detail and care to ensure that I was fully informed at all stages was very reassuring. The professionalism of the whole team was exceptional and Jonny and Ian worked together as a team to achieve an excellent result. I am thrilled with my new teeth and would highly recommend the Pure Dental Team to anyone else.
— Mrs F, 29th May 2015
I trust my dentists advice, he does excellent work and as a bonus makes me laugh! What more could you ask for? Thank you Simon.
— Ms D, 19th May 2015
I have spent most of my adult life avoiding my front teeth appearing in photographs. Now thanks to the cosmetic work carried out recently by Jonny Lynd I can now smile for the camera!
You have changed my outlook on life, many thanks.
— Mrs F, 18th May 2015
I moved my family to North Devon over 25 years ago. As one who suffered much pain at the hands of dentists in the 1940’s and 50’s I was particularly anxious to find a good practitioner.
I found that person in Simon Flynn: On the first occasion when the dreaded needle was required he listened carefully to my concerns and delivered absolute pain-free treatment. At the time Simon was a partner in a National Health Service practice. In 2013 he moved into the private sector as a partner at Pure Dental Centre. Because we had all received excellent treatment with Simon I decided to put the whole family on the PDC register.
Since that time we have all enjoyed professional and cheerful service from the practice staff. I wish them every success in the future and would not hesitate for a moment to recommend them to anyone.
— Mr A, 12th May 2015
I am completely and absolutely satisfied with the service I have received from Pure Dental.
Everyone at the centre has been courteous, polite, friendly and caring. My treatment has been superb, any anxiety has been addressed, I have felt no pain whatsoever and I am very pleased with the results. I could not be happier.
— Mrs A, 21st March 2014
I cannot speak highly enough of the Pure Dental Centre.
All treatment advised & explained.
All staff excellent & pleasant.
Couldn’t wish for better treatment.
— Mrs S, 13th March 2014
Dear Simon, and your FAB team. Just wanted to say a big thankyou to you all. From the helpful, kind but professional hygienists/receptionists to the always professional kindness of you and Anna.
My disabled son - now 23 yrs old has never had a filling or major problem with his teeth, due to your constant care and advice, this is despite him being on a cocktail of drugs - daily.
I can be very grateful to you and your team. Regards always.
— Mrs C, 7th March 2014
As a nervous patient, I found the whole experience less stressful than anticipated
The reassurance of Simon Flynn, and his quiet confidence is why I have followed him to his new practice.
From the politeness of the reception staff to the results of brilliant dental care, I have nothing but praise
— Mrs H, 4th March 2014
First-class,caring, efficient dentistry by friendly, attentive dentist and assistant in attractive designer surroundings with all the latest technical aids.
— Mrs A, 4th March 2014
The “Pure Dental Centre” was new for me but several things stood out throughout the course of my treatment. The total professionalism of the whole team from the moment you walk through the door is welcoming and reassuring. The whole approach with attention to detail and personal care was exceptional, everything was explained carefully from the beginning of constructing the treatment plan right through to the concluding visit. To me, humour and dental treatment do not usually fit well together but at the completion of my treatment with Jonny Lynd my closing remark, “I have never had so much fun in a dentist’s chair” served to sum up my whole experience. Without question the best dental treatment and care I have had in my sixty six years!

The service I received from the Pure Dental Centre has been excellent. The receptionists were both helpful and friendly and Jonny took great care to make my treatment as painless as possible. I have had very little trouble with my dentures, so, all in all I’m a very satisfied customer.
— Mrs A 6th February 2014
All the staff are friendly and welcoming and make you feel at ease.
My treatment was explained at every step, any questions I had were answered clearly, no matter how trivial.
The dentist listened to me and reassured me.
Thank you
— Mrs T 6th February 2014
After years of being conscious of a very large gap between my front teeth, you were able to minimise the gap to a more natural look and I am absolutely thrilled.

Thank you Jonny Lynd and your team, I wish you I had met you many years ago!!
— Mrs T, 20th August 2013
Had two implants fitted and a bridge. Not as daunting as I first anticipated and quite painless. Very good service and follow-up, I am very pleased with the end result. I can only recommend the treatment I received.
— Mr S, 8th August 2013
I was a very nervous patient, but Jonny made me feel at ease.
My teeth had got quite bad and I was afraid to smile. Now I have my new crowns, I smile all the time.
Thank you to everybody for helping me.
— Mrs F, 15th July 2013
I had an implant done at Pure Dental centre and couldn’t be happier with the result.
I had the utmost confidence in the Dentist and received first class treatment from everyone at the practice.
— Miss D, 18th June 2013
Eureka - At last - a dental centre of excellence. From the moment you enter the surgery you are made to feel special.
The entire team is highly skilled, totally professional and very caring with all modern technology to hand.
They also have a refreshing sense of humour.
They deserve their success
— Mrs L, 15th June 2013

On arrival - a friendly greeting with a smile! All the staff appear to be very happy and that makes for a relaxed environment, exactly what you want from your dental surgery!
— Mrs N, 13th June 2013
A visit to the dentist is not something we may look forward to, but this caring and professional practice, in delightful new premises is the exception.
Exemplary service throughout.
A practice big enough to cope , small enough to care
— Mr W and Family, 11th June 2013
Since discovering Pure Dental I have been treated each time by Mr Lynd and having continuity of treatment is very reassuring. My new denture is perfect in every way and as a patient I have been made feel special. I can thoroughly recommend the practice, the dentist and all of the staff.
