Dental Implant Patient Testimonial 

It is now two weeks since I finished my dental implant treatment and I have to say I am exceptionally pleased with the outcome. 

I wish to put on record my appreciation and gratitude to all the implant team for the care and professionalism in treating me. The entire team from Mr Gulati, Mr Brophy, Stacey, the support nurses and of course Maureen, Mr Gulati's secretary made what could have been a traumatic experience into something that was anything but. I am afraid that when it comes to dental treatment I am one of life's biggest cowards but I can honestly say that at no time did I experience pain and only minimal post-operative soreness. In my opinion this speaks volume for the care taken. It has been exemplary. 

I have mentioned and recommended The McIndoe Centre TAO implant team to everybody who asks about my treatment.
