Perfect Smile-Gateshead Dental Practice

15 Regent Terrace, Gateshead NE8 1LU, UK – 0191 477 2007

I recently moved to Gateshead and so have chosen Perfect Smile as my dental surgery. I am not a fan of going to the dentist (I mean who is?!) and have had lots of bad experiences and unreliable dentists in my life. However my faith has been restored since coming to this surgery. I am seen by Dr Jasmine, who is a lovely woman and is very gentle, informative and made me feel safe and comfortable. I had three fillings fitted today and was initially very nervous but I felt I was in good hands and actually felt extremely relaxed throughout the whole procedure. I’m usually someone who lies there with my eyes wide open watching everything the dentist does however today I was so relaxed and chilled out I just lay back with my eyes closed and was very comfortable. Definitely would recommend this surgery, try and get Jasmine if you can!!!!!

Felt at ease and had a excellent MOT on my gnashers. The practice has a reliable and knowledgeable team. I have been with this practice for over 60 years through the Whitehead and Dunlop days right up to today

Village Dental Practice

44A Front St, Whickham, Newcastle upon Tyne NE16 4DT, UK – 0191 420 0111

Absolutely thrilled with the results of my replacement bridge and realignment of my front teeth. Treatment was carefully planned, excellently performed with beautiful results. I cannot praise Mr Ghai and everyone at Village Dental practice enough, everyone has been so lovely in making me feel comfortable and at ease with the procedures and all my visits! Also having the Village Dental Plan helped reduce the cost of the treatment. Very Happy

My partner and I are extremely happy with the practice. Had a lovely feel when we came in today and the receptionist Beverly was very helpful and informative. Charlotte answered the phone and was helpful and friendly also she squeezed my partner in keep up the great work won’t go else where.

Bensham Dental Practice

24 Saltwell Rd, Gateshead NE8 4XE, UK – 0191 477 1981

Seriously the best dentist I've ever been registered with. The staff are very polite and helpful and the quality of the work is excellent. Highly recommended!

Best dental practice I've ever been to, I highly recommend them to anyone. Their dentist Gaurav is clearly very well educated and passionate about his work. He gave my teeth a thorough examination and clean, and his feedback and attention to detail was excellent. Gaurav's friendly demeanor put me at ease. Besides Gaurav, the staff were all nice and professional, but also friendly and talkative, which made me feel comfortable. The building itself was tidy and well kept, including all the equipment. I was very impressed by the level of service compared to all other dental practices I've visited previously. I was pleasantly surprised by the experience overall. Can't recommend enough, I wish I had joined up earlier

Sunniside Surgery

Awesome place!

Metro Interchange Surgery

5b, New Century House, Jackson St, Gateshead NE8 1HR, UK – 0191 477 6244

I am, by virtue of having long term health problems, a long standing visitor to this practice and generally, the care I receive is good. I rarely see the G.P as the nurses largely oversee the day to day management of my health problems. The doctor, when you do see him, can sometimes appear to be rushed and distracted, but he is a caring G.P. The nurses however, are amazing and the "backbone" of the practice. Both nurses are excellent. I see one nurse in particular and she's absolute brilliant and has supported me, through some really tough times and I know I can ring her, anytime, during surgery hours for advice. The administration and reception staff, are also good, it can take a minute or two for calls to be answered, but they are always helpful and polite. Thank you to all the members of the team, who look after me.

NHS Direct is now NHS 24. Just dial 111 to speak to a professional or click the link below for there self help website. Lots of really useful info but keep clear of heart surgery! If in doubt ask your GP or call 111. Good luck.

Always had great treatment, with respect while in. The nurses on the ward were so helpful and without them I'd have been stuffed. Great help from all. Shame visitors aren't as respectful to staff or those stuck in beds.

Local Restaurants & Places to Eat around Gateshead

Windows on the Tyne Restaurant

Bottle Bank, Gateshead NE8 2AR, UK – 0191 244 9549

A very relaxed dining experience. Good food at reasonable prices when you consider it is a hotel restaurant. The restaurant is cool (almost too cool) so wearing a jacket will not be an issue; those who not to fond of the cold would be best bringing a layer if it is too cool. Food was very tasty and well cooked. The new menu has loads of choices and the staff are very knowledgeable about the menu and will be happy to recommend their favourites. Will definitely eat here again!

Nice restaurant overlooking the River Tyne, pricey but good quality buffet English or continental breakfast. Might get crowded at times and there is a waiting time to secure a table. Coffee was terrible, better stick with a cup of tea

Pizza Hut Restaurants

47/49, Russell Way, Metrocentre, Gateshead NE11 9YZ, UK – 0191 493 2161

Serves very tasty pizza, and great for a quick bite. I hate rushing a meal but unfortunately Pizza Hut has that 'rushed' feel about it. If you are looking for a relaxing meal which serves Italian food you simply have to visit a nice Italian restaurant and enjoy your food with a nice glass of wine and the kind of ambience a pizza deserves.

This is a quality Pizza Hut. The waiters were very nice and funny. They had good music too. The pizza was quick to come and the chips were the best chips I had (they had cheese on too). It's so good and had this really good salt too. The cookie dough was also great (as usual).


409 Durham Rd, Gateshead NE9 5AN, UK – 0191 487 7747

Very good food and reasonable prices. Good service as well.

An excellent Italian Restaurant,reasonabley priced menu with a good selection of Italian n English meals,the staff are over and beyond helpful,always so helpful n friendly,

Brilliant nursery, lovely kind and caring staff. Ran amazingly and lots of fun Montessori activities. My daughter loves this nursery, couldn't fault it feels so homely.

Jewish education establishment with very restricted access to the facility. No off street parking.

Banana Moon Gateshead

Joicey Road, Gateshead NE9 5AT, UK – 0191 487 3777

Banana Moon is a great nursery! The location is perfect with it being next to saltwell park and kids often go for a walk there. My children love going to the nursery and there is lots of activities for them to do every day. Staff are loving, caring and always keep me up to date on everything my kids are doing. All meals are home made as well and there is a good variety of fruit and vegetables every day. Would definitely recommend!

My rather clingy little one has settled so well here. The facilities are clean tidy and new and the staff all lovely.

The Co-operative Childcare

1 Neville St, Newcastle upon Tyne NE1 5DP, UK – 0191 230 2466

Such an amazing nursery! Would recommend them very highly: Lovely friendly staff who can’t do enough to help you… There’s such a great atmosphere you can see why the same staff have stayed there years and years Delicious healthy food for the children each day :-) Always different and interesting toys and activities planned… probably why they got an OFSTED outstanding assessment! I also think it’s really helpful that they’re open longer hours than most nurseries: 7am-630pm My twin boys go there and they’ve always loved it… in fact even if we walk past on a non-nursery day they’re pointing at the door wanting to go in!
