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.

Robert

Before undertaking this treatment how did your smile/teeth affect your day to day life? Did you struggle with eating? Was you confidence affected by your smile?

An extraction many years ago caused problems with my jaw leading to pain at times. A old denture to fix the problem damaged another tooth, causing it to collapse. As a result I felt conscious about the gaps that were left.

When you began the treatment process was everything explained to you in a way you could understand? Do you feel you were fully informed before making any decisions?

Yes it was

During the treatment how did you feel? Were your concerns addressed? Were you made to feel as comfortable as possible? Did you feel that there was more that the team could’ve done to improve your experience?

I was a very nervous patient with other dentists, and I was apprehensive at the start because of what having the implants involved. But I was soon put at ease and had total confidence in Balaji’s professionalism. Nothing more could have been done and as a result I was relaxed during the whole procedure and felt no discomfort. Aftercare was excellent and I made a very quick recovery.

Did the quality of care you experience meet your expectations?

Yes, as always. I could not have asked for a better team to do the work. They made all the difference. If I had not felt happy then i would not have had further implants.

Now that the treatment is complete how do you feel about it? Is there more that can be done to improve the outcome? If not please describe your results.

I don’t really think about it as having the implants (and the crown) do not affect me negatively in any way. They have been fitted so well that I forget about them completely, which is how it should be. Nothing more could have been done to improve the outcome. It was better than I hoped for.

Has your experience with our dental team and treatment affected your life now in any way? Is your confidence improved? Do you find eating or socialising easier and more enjoyable?

It has removed the pain in my jaw and I have more confidence when eating something harder, but otherwise has had no effect since I forget all about them and get on with life. The gaps are gone and the implants blend in perfectly

Would you recommend friends and family to our practice? Do you feel that others would benefit from the same treatment options that you undertook?

Yes I would (and have) as I believe Balaji is one of the very best dentists doing implants, and I would not use or recommend anyone else. It is expensive but I feel it is very good value for money when you see the results. You really do get what you pay for.

Eddi

Last year I was introduced to The Gallery Dental Surgery. I was a very, very, nervous patient having had a very bad experience some years ago. I was so nervous that I had attempted, and failed, to visit 3 dental surgeries over the last 4 years, leaving in a panic before even seeing a dentist. I then found Dr Balaji. My initial visit to The Gallery was a whole new experience for me. I was treated with understanding and kindness by everyone and have never looked back.

Last year I had extensive implant and bone reconstruction surgery and I am truly delighted with the result.

Dr Balaji is an amazing dentist and I cannot thank him and his team enough.

Alison

Before undertaking this treatment how did your smile/teeth affect your day to day life? Did you struggle with eating? Was you confidence affected by your smile?

Not aware of any problems affecting my day to day life. I undertook the treatment to preserve my dental health.

When you began the treatment process was everything explained to you in a way you could understand? Do you feel you were fully informed before making any decisions?

I was fully informed both before and during the treatment. Explanations were clear and informative. I appreciated written explanations as well as spoken.

During the treatment how did you feel? Were your concerns addressed? Were you made to feel as comfortable as possible? Did you feel that there was more that the team could’ve done to improve your experience?

I felt very comfortable during the treatment. I had no particular concerns but if they had arisen I feel sure that they would have been discussed. No, I can’t think of anything more that could have been done.

Did the quality of care you experience meet your expectations?

Yes. All members of the team were warm, friendly and extremely professional.

Now that the treatment is complete how do you feel about it? Is there more that can be done to improve the outcome? If not please describe your results.

I am extremely pleased that I was able to undergo the treatment. It is important to me that I do all I can to preserve my dental health and avoid as far as possible what may come as a result of neglect.

Has your experience with our dental team and treatment affected your life now in any way? Is your confidence improved? Do you find eating or socialising easier and more enjoyable?

I cannot think of anything specific as I undertook treatment as a preventative measure. I assume I am able to act in a way now that will lessen the chance of digestive problems that might have arisen otherwise.

Would you recommend friends and family to our practice? Do you feel that others would benefit from the same treatment options that you undertook?

I would highly recommend the practice. I am sure that others would benefit from the same treatment that I had.

The care and advice you and the staff at The Gallery Dental and Implant Centre have given me has been brilliant, this includes Annie (Hygienist), dental staff and the receptionists.

I would also say that I have always been sceptical about the true value of visits to Hygienists but the detailed treatment I received from Kate Barker was the most meaningful I had experienced.

I would (and already have) whole-heartedly recommended The Gallery Dental and Implant Centre for the provision of veneers or implants, and also for hygienist work too.

I have received so many positive comments already about my ‘new teeth’, and the confidence in my smile has returned. I am so happy with them, I think they are perfect.

Dr Balaji and his team are very professional and friendly, and I would not hesitate in recommending The Gallery Dental and Implant Centre to anybody who may need services of this kind. I actually cannot think of any way in which the surgery could be improved.

In addition to Dr Balaji it must be noted that his team are an exceptionally friendly bunch, I almost feel like I am part of the team, and this is due to their obvious enjoyment of their jobs and their willingness to help – not to mention their outgoing friendliness too.

I am really pleased with the treatment I have received from Mr Balaji and his staff. They have been considerate and helpful and the results have been wonderful. They have done their utmost to fit appointments around my work pattern. Mr Balaji explained each stage of the treatment and made sure that I understood what was involved…

My new teeth have changed my life. I can now eat anything and am able to enjoy a nice steak, something I haven’t been able to do for years. It’s also been good for my general confidence, as I no longer have to hide my teeth when I smile.

Balaji is clearly a most talented surgeon, I was always confident, despite the difficulty of the operations, that eventually everything would be fine. Not only is he a gifted surgeon but he is also a most caring person; a gentleman is every true sense of the word.

I can now confidently say that no steak is too tough, no bap too thick or my wife’s pastry too hard (the last one was a joke!) for me and my implants.

WORTH EVERY PENNY AND TOTALLY RECOMMENDED!

I enclose a letter of thanks to you and all the staff, following my treatment for implants. I think I have one more appointment to make but I am already feeling the difference and am really pleased with the results.

I would like to say thank you to all the staff involved in my treatment. Everyone was very helpful, kind and understanding.

Several months have passed since my dental implant treatment was completed, they have been joyous months. I am now able to crunch my way into apple, steak and crust with a pleasure long forgotten.

Throughout my experience I was always dealt with in a professional and amenable manner, I was able to choose the shade of teeth I required, my wishes, fears and concerns were taken into account all the way through my treatment, and I am extremely happy with my new look, it has given me the confidence to smile and not worry about how my teeth look anymore.
