Although my appointment was delayed, I was kept fully aware of the wait and chose to sit in the lovely warm waiting room, reading my book. As usual all procedures and options were explained. I'm really happy to be with this amazing practice.
I cannot believe that I had 2 roots removed today, my fear of the dentist has left my teeth needing some attention (a lot). I have gone from having to have someone drive me for just a check up, having a scale and polish to X-rays on another session. I can’t believe I wasn’t shaking or crying today, knowing I was having roots removed. I did it, no crying, drove myself and came out smiling. Thank you Desford Dentist for helping be to begin to overcome my fears and I will be a regular patient. Carole
I would like to say a massive thank-you to Bavisha and Kayleigh for their amazing support and patience towards me, giving me a chance to regain my confidence in recieving dental treatment! As a very nervous person who has not been seen by a dentist in 12 years i must say that the reassurance i recieved is definitely life changing and has helped me view the dentist as a much less scary place! I have now finally got my smile back and i am extremely grateful. I would definitely recommend this practice.
I had got to be the most nervous patient in the country but I have got to say that Mr Hanish Chotai was the best dentist I’ve ever had and really puts you at ease. I would highly recommend to anyone who is nervous.
Title: A Dentist who Truly Cares: Highly Recommend for Nervous PatientsRating: ⭐⭐⭐⭐⭐I recently had an incredibly positive experience with a dentist who specializes in treating nervous patients. After being in so much pain the worse i have ever experienced and being scared to go due to childhood trauma, From the moment I walked into their clinic, I felt a sense of genuine care and compassion that immediately put me at ease. I cannot recommend this dentist highly enough for anyone who experiences dental anxiety or nervousness.One of the most remarkable aspects of this dentist's practice is their ability to create a comfortable atmosphere. The waiting area was relaxing, and the staff members were understanding and empathetic. They took the time to listen to my concerns and addressed them with patience and kindness. This sense of understanding continued throughout the entire appointment, making me feel completely supported and valued as a patient.The dentist himself was exceptional. Not only did he possess an impressive depth of knowledge and expertise, but he also had an extraordinary ability to explain procedures and treatments in a clear and concise manner. He took the time to answer all my questions and ensured I felt comfortable and informed every step of the way.More importantly, this dentist didn't rush through the appointment, nor did they dismiss my fears or anxieties. They actively worked to establish trust and provided strategies to manage my nervousness, such as regular check-ins and gentle numbing techniques. Their patience and gentle approach truly made a significant difference in my overall experience.During the treatment itself, the dentist's gentle touch and calming demeanor helped alleviate any discomfort or anxiety I had been feeling. They continuously checked in with me, providing reassurance and making sure I was as comfortable as possible. Their dedication to patient comfort was evident in every aspect of their practice, to their consideration for any potential pain during procedures.Even after the appointment, and tooth extraction which i felt absolutely no pain what so ever , the dentist followed up with me to ensure I was still feeling comfortable and happy with the outcome. This level of care and attention made me feel valued as a patient, reinforcing my confidence in their ability to deliver exceptional dental services.Overall, I wholeheartedly recommend this dentist to anyone who experiences dental anxiety or nervousness. Their genuine care, understanding, and unmatched skill in treating nervous patients make them an outstanding practitioner. Thanks to their expertise and compassionate approach, I now no longer fear dental visits and feel empowered to prioritize my oral health, with desford dental practice.If you're seeking a dentist who will provide unparalleled care for nervous patients, look no further. This dentist truly goes above and beyond, ensuring a positive, stress-free experience that will leave you smiling.Thank you to this exceptional dentist and their team for restoring my faith in dental care and making a lifelong impact on my oral health journey.Angela murphy .tooth extraction today after waiting 10 mins at very most .Once again team thankyou 🙏
Really pleased with the help and support I have received. Ria has been fantastic, listened to what I wanted to change about my teeth and came up with a plan to achieve it. I'm really pleased with the end results, I now feel confident when smiling and highly recommend them.
I had an appointment Tuesday 6th June to have a filling refill, I must say it went much better than I thought and after around 5 minutes I manage to relax more and realised there wasn't any pain but just sounds from the equipment being used. I've been going to Desford Dental Care for many years and they are all lovely and make you feel welcome and comfortable. I recommend going if you are the nervous type. Thank you for a good experience, Regards Sal
I’ve been going to Desford dental Care for 16 years and was/am an anxious patient. Hanish and Shilpa over the years have been wonderful in helping my anxiety. I’ve now had a root filling with Laura and she was so very good and very reassuring and patient. Can not praise her highly enough.
The best dental practice I have ever visited. *****Five stars is not enough! Being an extremely nervous patient due to previous bad dental experiences it was such a relief to find a dental practice where all of the staff I have come into contact with have listened to me and understood my fears. Their advice, guidance and understanding in each appointment has been a very welcome change. I have total confidence in this dental practice and no longer have the anxiety I had about visiting the dentist as I know I am in safe hands. I have total trust in them especially as they involve you in making decisions about what treatment you need and what your options are. With special thanks to all of the receptionists, Dr Hanish Chotai and Mrs Nakshi Mehta.
I joined Desford Dentists more than ten years ago after another dentist carried out excessive cosmetic work on my, then, perfectly healthy teeth and convinced me to have veneers that I could have avoided.Since I've been with Hanish he has repaired and corrected the damage done to my teeth and, using superior materials to previously, has given me a smile that everybody comments on.His friendly and caring nature along with his vast knowledge of dentistry has led me to recommend his practice to numerous friends and family.All of the staff from the reception are so polite and helpful and nothing seems too much trouble.Recently Laura (trained by Hanish) carried out a root canal procedure on myself and I hardly felt a thing. Hanush himself frequently looked in to check on progress and he gave her work the thumbs up after checking my x-ray results.This is the new benchmark for how all dentist practices should operate and they deserve all the credit and recognition they receive 👏 🙌
I had joined the practice at the beginning of the year, knowing that my teeth was in pretty bad shape. Im someone who gets really nervous at the dentist but I was greeted with Ria who was so lovely and wonderful from the very start! She made me feel at ease and talked me through every process! I did have to have quiet a lot of treatment which meant a lot of needles which I’m not a big fan of, but she made me feel very comfortable and I might even say I don’t mind them anymore! I can’t thank her enough for helping me get my teeth back healthy! I Would also like to mention how lovely the reception staff are as well! Always a smile on there faces and incredibly helpful! Definitely the best dentist I’ve been to! 🙌🏻
I’ve been a patient at Desford Dental Care for many years now, initially as a very nervous patient. Dr Hanish is clearly a very special Dentist who treats his patients with personal care, not often seen in todays constantly challenging society. For this care, I am eternally grateful Hanish, thankyou.Just before Christmas 2022, I visited the practice with a problem and was seen by Laura, and the personal care and approach shown by Hanish, seems to be a distinguishing quality shared by other dentists. The care I received from Laura before Christmas was exemplary and the care and empathy I received today on returning for an extraction was similarly extremely caring and comforting.It’s unusual to find a team that share a similar approach to patient care and well-being.A personal shout out to Laura, for putting me at ease today, for talking to me and explaining, for the follow up call later in the day, and just for taking the time to care, thankyou. Laura, you are an absolute credit to the Desford Dental Care team, Thank you, and all the very best for your future career Laura
I got an emergency appointment on the day I contacted the practice. The extraction a day later wasn’t easy but Ria persevered and removed all the roots. She took time from her lunch to do this as they were very short staffed due to illness. Both Ria and Andrea were professional and calm and even though clearly pushed for time they gave me all the time I needed to get settled and calm me down. Much appreciated and a credit to the practice.
I had composite bonding done by Ria at this practice, she was very skilled, friendly, welcoming, and helped the process go even more smoothly. I’m very pleased with my results and I recommend seeing her. Also a special thanks to Eleanor for her assistance and taking care of me.
I have recently used The Enlighten Evolution3 teeth whitening product as recommended by Mr Pabari at Desford and I couldn’t be happier with the results.Using the product nightly takes a bit of commitment and your gums can become quite sensitive. However, it is only a few weeks and the sensitivity quickly disappears once finished and there’s always the option to stop for a day or more if you need to.In a short time my teeth have gone several shades lighter making my smile look bright and healthy, it’s such a difference. I notice it every time I look in the mirror. It’s a massive confidence boost and I’m absolutely delighted with it. I’ll definitely keep it topped up.I was given great instructions on how to use it and it’s easier than you maybe think it will be. Would definitely recommend.
Have been with this dental practice since it opened. Great, friendly staff. The receptionists are always welcoming and if you ever feel nervous or unsure the dentists are always calm and reassuring. Had an injection to numb for a filling today. I was nervous about it and Hanish made me feel relaxed. Also, very grateful for their work throughout covid as many of my friends at other dental practices could not get face to face appointments and were struck off. This dental practice were there when I needed them.
Recently registered with Desford Dental Care after using a practice in a neighbourhood village for many years.The staff and dentists are professional, friendly, and extremely helpful.Their tips and advice on oral hygiene and technique was great (and something that previous practices that I have used never gave). Highly recommend.
I have been going to this practice for a few years now. I always recommend Desford Dental Care to anyone that asks. The staff are lovely and welcoming, you can see that they get on with each other too which adds to the welcoming atmosphere.I have had a few dentists over my time there and they have all been lovely, if you ask they will give advice.The best dentist practice I have been to!
I have been a patient at this practice for many years and have always received an excellent service from Ria and her team. I have recently undergone ‘Invisalign’ treatment to straighten and whiten my teeth and am very pleased with the final results. Thanks to Ria for her calm and efficient manner and for keeping me informed at every step of the way.
Have been a patient for many years and see the hygienist every 3 months. Have seen several different people during this time. Today I saw Khaleel and I have to say that he did an amazing job ( best clean since Anna Fear left) He did a very thorough job!!! Thank you Khaleel.
Have been a patient for many years and see the hygienist every 3 months. Have seen several different people during this time. Today I saw Dhaleel and I have to say that he did an amazing job ( best clean since Anna Fear left) He did a very thorough job!!! Thank you Dhaleel.
I had my teeth whitened at the surgery with the Enlighten system and am really pleased with the results. The process was simple, comfortable and I didn't experience any sensitivity.I have always been nervous about visiting the dentist and avoided seeing a dentist for several years before registering at Desford. Hanish and his team have always put me at ease during my appointments and I have recommended the surgery to my friends and neighbours.
PERFECT IN EVERY WAY!Received new denture under the guidance/treatment/patience/ understanding and total skill of Shiv ( Shivram) and could not be happier, absolutely blown away by the result, BRILLIANT! thankyou Shiv!Very nice to have continuity of Dental Assistant Jess who is quietly reassuring and efficient. All ladies at reception are very friendly, polite andhelpful. THANK YOU TO YOU ALL !!!!
Friendly staff put you at ease as soon as you walk through the door Hanish has been my dentist for over 10 years I was a very nervous patient but no more he is fantastic. I must mention the new hygienist he is super so gentle and done a great job, so friendly
I have been to see Hanish as my dentist for over 10 years. He is always friendly and so concerned for your welfare. He is calm and so conscious of making nervous patients more relaxed.The reception staff are always friendly and welcoming.
Myself and my family have been patients at Desford Dental Care for many years , and my visit today to the practice was like every visit before ………. on arrival the receptionist team are always courteous and helpful. My dentist Ria and her assistant Ellie instantly make you feel welcome and relaxed , which is important in any dentistry .Treatment is always explained clearly and done very professionally to the highest standards .I can only rate Ria and the whole team of people at Desford Dental Care as brilliant ! Thank you .
I am nervous to say the least about visiting the Dentist. I had an appointment with Shilpa this morning for several fillings, She is amazing and so kind patient and reassuring. I would definitely recommend this practice. It has given me the confidence to carry on with the treatment I need thanks to Shilpa and all the staff
Staff are always friendly and welcoming. They all have dealt brilliantly with the changes the pandemic requested of them. Special thanks to Ria who always calms me down, knowing what sort of panic I suffer having to go to the dentist. I also love how there's always a friendly chat with my little daughter to out her ease. Never any pressure, always fun.
Not very often we can say we enjoyed our visit to the dentist but I very happy with the service I have received. Whether it be for a routine dental check-up, treatment or a visit to the Hygienist. Staff are friendly, polite and helpful.Special mention for my Dentist, Ria, genuinely interested in her patients and very thorough with her treatment and advice.
I have been using this dentist for many years and have always found them to be friendly, helpful and professional. Receptionists go above and beyond to help and the staff including the dentists and hygienists are excellent at their job, putting you at ease and always explaining what treatment you require.Excellent covid measures in place.
I have been coming to Desford Dental Care for many years now and have always found the whole team to be friendly, professional, and very helpful, from the ladies on reception to the dental nurses and of course the dentist themselves. I have on many occasions had to call on their services as an emergency case and found them to be very accommodating, I cannot recommend this practice highly enough and I wish them all a happy Christmas, keep up the good work and no doubt I’ll be seeing them all again in 2022.
I've recently completed a course of Invisalign and it's been incredible. Ria explained everything very clearly to me, and was always at the end of the phone in case I had any stupid questions or forget anything (which happened quite a bit). She was very flexible with my more awkward needs for appointments and made the whole process easier than I thought it was going to be. Thanks for the great service Ria!
I was first introduced to Ria at Desford Dental Care following a friends recommendation. Due to a terrible fear of dentists and poor treatment in the past I had not had my teeth looked at for a very long time. The last 6 months Ria has fixed many problems but also calmed my fears at every appointment and the progress has been amazing. I couldn't give a higher recommendation.
Great Professional Service and highly recommended. Best and quietest part of a hefty workday recently was getting a root canal finished. Nearly fell asleep. Dr. Ria also recommended a Dental Hospital appointment for a none dental related item. Thanks :-) ...
Thank you to Yusuf and Nurse Beth today for excellent care, patience and reassuring with my treatment today! I visited 2 weeks ago for my checkup exam Yusuf and Nurse Andrea who were both very thorough, friendly and again reassuring both time the practice was well organized and very calm! Thank you for the 5 star service to all of the team 👍
Great service all round. Was given a few different options for what i needed and honest advice for which would be best. Great care from Yusuf and nurse Lauren, first injection i have not been able to feel. Very impressed. And many thanks to receptionist Kay, Always very professional and friendly and patient finding me a suitable appointment. I Still travel over an hour to this practice after moving away, as found local dentists provide less care and seem more concerned with making money.
Fantastic dental practice. Great staff, and lovely surgery. I have spent the last four weeks transforming my smile with the help of Shilpa. She has done biocelar composites on four of my teeth and the results are amazing. I’ve also had a new wire retainer and plastic retainer and nothing has been a problem. A great dentist with a lovely welcoming atmosphere and very COVID safe, all measures have been taken to avoid you having contact with any other patient and you feel totally at ease, great organisation from you all. Thanks to shilpa and all the staff at Desford Dental :)
