Patient Stories

Here are some of the comments The Gallery Dental and Implant Centre has received from patients. If you would like to give us feedback on your dental treatment, please email us.


I was always conscious about the gap where two teeth were missing and I rarely ate on that side. When I came into the surgery no detail was left out and I was completely confident about the whole procedure. I was surprisingly relaxed and it was no different than any dental procedures I’d had before. Everyone was just lovely and went over and above to make me comfortable. I love my implants and I am always showing people! This treatment has affected my life for the better – I only wish I had done it earlier and not waited for 10 years. I have recommended this practice to lots of people and have shared my positive experience and casting aside any fears that they may have.


I want to thank you for the successful new mouth that you have achieved for me. I am very pleased with the result.

There cannot be many who feel no trepidation at the thought of having four implants with a central bridge between them, but I had a much better experience than expected and feel grateful for the efforts that you made to keep any pain to a minimum.

The whole process has taken quite a while and several necessary stages, but it has all been worthwhile as the new teeth have worked very well from the moment of being finally fitted by you and with no apparent problems.

At 82 years of age I had to consider carefully whether it was worthwhile having implants but now feel that it definitely was. I came to see you through recommendation and would certainly recommend you to anyone considering implants and other dentals treatment.

My thanks to you and all the team at the practice.


I’ve been a patient of Dr. Balaji for six years now. Prior to that I struggled to find a dentist who really took the time to listern to concerns and the paid that I was experiencing in my teeth. Dr Balaji took the time. He is the best dental surgeon that I’ve ever been to. He is always very thorough in his explanations of suitable treatment options.
Dr Balaji has a very kind, sincere personality and always makes me feel comfortable.
The entire team at The Gallery are all very professional and friendly and take the time to care about you personally.
I would highly recommend the practice to anyone who is looking for the best dental treatment and reassurance that you will be well looked after.


Thank you very much for my lovely new teeth and all the care I have received over the last 6 months from all of you. I was very nervous about the procedures to be undertaken. You have all made me relaxed and comfortable at all times. Sending my thanks and best wishes.


Before I came to the practice, I had rampant gum disease, and frankly I was scared of losing my teeth. Kate has helped me get my gums back to a healthy state, and she is always kind and gentle.
The biggest improvement I have had is my front six teeth. After many years of poor dental work Balaji managed to replace my old crowns with some super natural looking teeth. People always comment on how great they look. Balaji has changed my attitude to coming to the dentist entirely. I completely trust him and he makes me feel relaxed.


If there is anyone out there who is in need of dental services of any kind, I can strongly recommend The Gallery Dental Centre. All the staff are extremely friendly, as well as being hugely talented. For someone like me who used to find every visit to the dentist a fear-inducing experience, the quiet confidence of The Gallery has been an oasis.


I have been under you and your teams care now for a number of years and thanks to you all I could not be happier with all the results in the implants, crowns and hygienist departments.
But at the front of your team arranging all your appointments is Magda, who has without doubt the most perfect attributes one could find in a receptionist.
From my own personal experience of having to recently cancel appointments to see yourself and Kate, Magda could not have been more helpful in attempting to re-book them at the earliest possible opportunity.
Relying on other cancellations to get me appointments sooner than was initially available must have been very frustrating as she rung me a number of times with days that I unfortunately just could not attend. Undaunted and unfazed, Magda neither neglected nor gave up until it was smiles all round when she rang me yet again with a next day appointment I could attend for both yourself and Kate.
Nothing was, or is, too much trouble for Magda who exudes the most friendly and happiest of attitudes whether on the phone or in person.
Magda is clearly a dedicated person and would be an asset to anyone, but thankfully for us all she’s within your practice at this time.


Dear Dr. Balaji,

Today is my final examination of my dental implant.

First, I want to thank you most sincerely for the wonderful implant and crown, it looks amazing. It was a huge decision for me to spend this amount of money on one tooth. What I did know was that I didn’t want a plate or any kind of solution which would require me putting in and removing a false tooth. The dental implant is extremely comfortable and feels that I have a complete set of my own teeth.

Throughout the entire process I have found your explanations of what will be happening each time I visit you easy to understand and I have felt your gentle, calm demeanour very reassuring. Your dental assistant was also very encouraging especially when I was dreading the sinus graft. I absolutely hate going to any dentist so this has been a huge thing for me.

Added to this I must mention of Magdalena your Receptionist who is a breath of fresh air. She is a sunny smiley person and although I would turn up nervous she is always there with a lovely sunny greeting which also had a calming effect on me. She is a great asset to your practice.

Thank you so much from the bottom of my heart. I love my new implant!


I love my new teeth – they are just what I wished for, look fantastic and love it every time I look in the mirror!
The staff made me feel at ease throughout my treatment and made me feel very cared about. Any questions I had were very well explained and answered with detail. The team are very caring and extremely pleasant. They made me feel important. More importantly, the level of care I received totally exceeded my expectations.
I couldn’t be more please and wished I’d done it years ago, so I would definitely recommend a friend the to visit the practice.


Before I received by restorative treatment, everything was explained in great detail and was easy to understand. I was made to feel comfortable and the concerns that I did have were dealt with in a satisfactory manner.

The team went out of their way to make the experience as pleasant as possible, and the quality of the care was above my expectations.

I am very happy with the result of the treatment. It has made feel significantly more confident with social activities, so I would definitely recommend the practice!
