Dr Dirk Bister and team provided excellent service and wonderful patient care. I was made to feel very comfortable with professional advice throughout the treatment period and beyond. Thank you very much to Dr Bister and his excellent team.

I’m really glad I had my orthodontic consultation at Devonshire House. The service is exemplary and so was my care. Mr Bister is a top expert and second to none. I also admired the lovely relaxing practice itself.

Dirk is truly remarkable in his work. Pure skill, I’m extremely happy with his work and would thoroughly recommend him.

I have had nothing but the most optimal attention and consideration taken the whole time since my treatment continued with you.The lovely, lovely nurse who is always there at each appointment too has been more like family each time I see her, and Mr Bister himself has gone above and beyond, not just professionally, but so supportively too. I couldn’t have even wished for better from the treatment.
