Patient story 1
“Due to a history of avoiding dentists (Probably based on a number of traumatic episodes in the dentist chair when I was a kid) my teeth were in bad shape both physically and aesthetically which through the years I had grown very conscious of, not smiling for photos, covering my mouth with my hand when laughing and so on.
I realised enough was enough and decided to do something about it. I approached a number of dentists for assessment. The decision to go with Dr Gill at Gipsy Lane was a very easy one as he made the available options clear and took the time to go through the procedures involved and worked with me on a course of action that would suit my teeth and as importantly suit me financially.
The treatment involved filling and crown work and Dr Gill explained every step of the procedure as he carried it out and I would not be exaggerating when I say all virtually pain free ,to the point I started to find my visits quite relaxing.
I am delighted with the results and I am smiling again, and I would like to thank doctor Gill and his team, and could not recommend them enough to any one that needs dental treatment”
Patient story 2
I would just like to write a few words about my son’s experience with you.
When Charlie first came to see you his top teeth were little more than blackened stumps, he had no problems with them until he was about 16, when the enamel started wearing away(I suspect fizzy drinks and chocolate played a large part!) by the time I realised the extent of the damage they had got to the state that you saw when we first came to see you. This had made Charlie really self conscious and reluctant to smile, laugh and even to talk to people. I almost had to drag him to see you as he was so ashamed to let anyone, even a dentist see his teeth.
On the first visit you instantly built up a great rapport with Charlie which was amazing as he had such low self esteem. You put him at ease straight away as you talked us through the extensive treatment he would need in layman’s terms so that we both understood. You explained every detail and offered all the options open to him and at 19yrs old Charlie started his treatment.
Now, just over a year later with just minimal work left to do Charlie is a changed young man, he has a job, girlfriend and a beautiful smile which he uses often. As his Mum I am so grateful to you for the part you played in this and although Charlie doesn’t say much I know he is too.
The last thing I would also like to add that all the way through the treatment you kept me informed of costs and you did your absolute best to make it great value for money, In my mind it is the best investment I have ever made!
Thank you so much
I agree with all of what my Mum said, and would just add that although the treatment was long and quite hard at times it was never painful and I was never worried about coming to see you. I also agree that I feel much better about myself now and have stopped putting my hand over my mouth every time I talk to people. I am getting out and meeting new people now and everything is good. Top Man – Top Dentist.
Thank you very much
