“I would just like to express my sincere gratitude for all the help that you have given me over the past few weeks following my sailing accident.

Dentist's surgeries have always, until now, filled me with fear and dread - probably as a result of having fillings without any anaesthetics as a child.

The way that you have all managed to squeeze my numerous appointments into your busy schedule, treated me and re-assured me throughout the various procedures and generally put me at ease (even during the extraction process) has been nothing short of brilliant.

And.. the real bonus is that, apart from being virtually pain free throughout the process, the temporary teeth that you have made for me look far better than my own teeth did prior to the accident. What could be better!

Whilst I don't think I will ever be 100% comfortable in the dentist chair, I will certainly no longer fear the prospect of making an appointment. See you all in a couple of months.”
