"I am a new patient to the practice. My Dentist is Dr Dhvani Shah.
I had a broken tooth that needed treatment, it’s difficult for me because I'm Autistic, I have Asperger’s and extreme Anxiety Disorder, new things and places make me very anxious.On the day of my appointment I was very nervous, but from the minute I met Dhvani she put me at ease, both her and her nurse were lovely. We decided that I would have root canal work and a crown. When I came for that, I didn’t feel a thing, not even the injection! Unfortunately, over the weekend I developed a very bad infection that made my eye close and my face swell. I came to the practice first thing on Monday, and Dhavani interrupted her busy schedule to see me, giving me antibiotics, which worked very well.
I just wanted to say a huge thank you for everything. You have turned a fear of Dentists into something I look forward to. I feel welcome at your practice. Thank you" F. Millford
"I finally decided at the beginning of the year to ask Mr Patel to discuss with me the possibility of giving my uneven two front teeth a more appealing appearance. How pleased I am that I did ask. Mr Patel explained to me that the best course of treatment in my case would be to have the two teeth crowned with porcelain crowns & just a small white filling at the top of the tooth adjacent to the two front ones.
I took the opportunity to have a course of teeth whitening prior to the preparation work on my teeth & returned for the fitting after the work in the laboratory had been carried out.
I would like to thank everyone at Forest House for the treatment & care I received. I now find myself talking & smiling with more confidence." J. Tuddenham
"Superb care & attention from Diresh & Zoe. From the first appointment all nerves were quickly gone as I was put at ease by their genuine friendliness; they make a great team! I'm super impressed with the outcome of my treatment too.
It makes going to the dentist an entirely different experience when you have people like these taking care of you! Thank you." E. Walmsley
"I have recently had to have a dental extraction and the surgery arranged for the dental surgeon to do the procedure. I had a horrific experience with with a dentist before and was petrified. The lady on the reception was fantastic and promised me I would be extremely well looked after and she kept true to her word I was. The forest house dental team and Dr Patel were truly excellent. They put me at ease and we're kind and gentle. The offending molar was out in minutes. Forest house dental practice are a credit to the dental profession. I cannot thank them enough." R. Elliott
"I have been a patient with the Forest House Dental Practice for many years. It is now several weeks since I completed my most recent course of treatment with the Practice; and I wish to put on record my complete satisfaction at the care and attention to detail which I have experienced.
The Dental Team has always demonstrated concern and skill for my wellbeing, explaining the stages to be adopted for proposed treatments. When one of my front teeth became very painful with infection in the roots, Dr Sarj Patel advised an extraction, which he carried out painlessly, with great skill under local anaesthetic. I was made aware of the situation and alternative ways forward to restore my ‘smile’. I chose to have an implant inserted.
It was necessary that I had a bone graft to provide an improved location for the implant socket and the surgery was carried out very skilfully by my dentist. Whilst the socket healed I was provided with a temporary ‘tooth’ for cosmetic purposes which avoided drawing too much attention to my missing front tooth. The final stage in the reconstruction was carried out by Dr Sarj Patel inserting the implanted tooth which had been carefully colour-matched to my other teeth. I am very pleased with the results which have been achieved by the highly skilled team at the Forest House Dental Practice and my confidence to smile again is restored." W. Gill
