Before my treatment with Richard I always had problems withmy teeth; constant pain, embarrassment, lack of confidence — even to thepoint where I would tend to avoid social situations. Eating was challenging,smiling was not an option for me and photographs were something I had to avoid.
After being advised to have a consultation with Richard he assured me that hecould help and explained everything in great detail but was always positiveabout the treatment.
Once the initial treatment was performed I was quite frankly amazed at thedifference in my quality of life – I was lucky enough not to experience anypain immediately after or since and my life is so much easier and better – nownothing is a problem — eating, smiling, social gatherings and even photographsaren’t a problem anymore. I really do wish I had the treatment many yearsago.
Every part of the practice is en example of outstanding professional, moderncustomer service — from booking an appointment, excellent communication leading up to, to how you are treated with dignity and respect when attending an appointment along with the follow up care is also exemplary.
So happy the practice is open with great measures to protect us patients! I first arrived to this practice in August 2018 as a young woman with the fear of a denture being my only option, to very quickly realising I am in good hands. Richard’s overwhelming expertise has saved me and I am now very close to getting the smile I have been waiting for. The whole team has welcomed me and made me feel very comfortable no matter the time or day I need help! Special mention to Bernadette the secretary, for always being on the other end of the phone, listening to my problems and making sure I am seen quickly and even working around my shift patterns. I’m looking forward to working with the rest of the team! I would 100 % recommend this practice!
The confidence I now feel has truly exceeded all of my expectations. I just can’t thank Sophie enough, I really felt like she went above and beyond to give me the look I always wanted.g for.
I had a dental implant, which after about 30-40 years had become loose and infected so had to be removed. I was a crisis point as my mouth was such a mess (no bone), I could not have another one and a normal denture would not stay in I was in despair. My dentist Dr David Lee suggested zygomatic implants and referred me to Dr Richard Brookshaw. After a long consultation it was agreed that I was a suitable candidate for surgery. Everything was explained to me in detail and a step by step treatment plan was drawn up, a date for surgery was decided and my dentist Dr Lee liaised with Dr Brookshaw throughout the treatment. When I arrived for surgery I was made very comfortable, and when I came round from the sedation it was all over. I didn’t feel any pain or discomfort and in no way was I at all incapacitated, life carried on as usual. The care I received both before and after surgery was truly wonderful. The final bridge is now in place and looks and feels great. I cannot think of anything negative to say. If anyone is feeling hesitant about a zygomatic implant I would say “Go for it” you will never regret it. My self confidence is boundless eating, speaking swimming etc. The team have a wonderful combination of friendliness and professionalism and of course the end results are just super. Many thanks for all your kindness.
As someone afraid of dentists resulting in having lost some teeth now decided a better option than a denture was needed. All options were explained but bone loss had taken place and the choice was now limited.
I was referred to Richard Brookshaw for possible Zygomatic implants and an initial consultation was arranged. He explained the full process and the stages that would take place, giving me assurances that when the procedure took place I would definitely leave with “teeth” which was a relief. Information was sent to me relating to all the stages of the process, which is a great help to refer to. His explanation and answering questions gave me the confidence and trust in him to take to the next stage.
Two further appointments were made one for impressions and decisions on what I wanted from the temporary implants. The second was for the actual procedure.
The procedure was done by Richard and his Team assisting, all went well and at the end of the day I had a top set of teeth to be proud of, an emotional feeling on seeing them even though temporary.
