“I’ve recently had my final dental implant appointment with Chris and I was amazed to see how well my new tooth fits and looks! I am beyond happy with it! Chris has always made sure that everything was explained to me from the first consultation throughout the whole process. I've always been very scared of the dentist and was feeling very nervous leading up to my first implant procedure, but to my suprise I wasn't experiencing any pain and the procedure seemed quick and painless. I am very grateful to Chris for giving me my smile back!“
"I was referred to Chris by my own dentist as I needed implants. I had a lot of work done on my front teeth back in 2017. Chris organised this to be done in one day. Temporary teeth were fitted to go away with while gum was settling for my proper teeth. Temporary teeth looked amazing too. I have been back to get the teeth and gums checked by Chris, again treated so kindly by all staff."
