My experience with dentists is not one of the best and having been born in the early 70s did not help either.
Perhaps due to certain predisposition and diet, I've suffered a lot from tooth decay and by the age of 11 I had already had a molar extracted (I still believe the extraction was unnecessary but, 30 years ago, it was a quite common thing to do if a tooth had severe decay).
Things did not get any better and by my late 20s most of my teeth had fillings, several crowns and a bridge (second extraction already taken place- this time well needed as a granduloma had developed underneath a decaying tooth).
Needless to say that all the work done on my mouth was not going to last forever. In fact, in March 2013, two teeth broke irreparably and I found myself with several teeth missing. I felt awful and was embarrassed to smile. Eating was hard too as I could no longer chew properly. I needed to get that sorted ASAP!
I went in search of a good dentist and after three consultations with different dentists, I was referred to Dr Punit.
What came next was a bit of a shock to me. After examining my situation, Dr Punit discovered that I had several infections.
Very calmly, Dr Punit explained to me that my mouth was in a such a bad state there were not quick fixes and the work I needed to have done would take at least 8 months
This was at first very demoralising and I cannot deny that I also got very worried about going through such a long and expensive treatment.
Nevertheless, after giving it some serious thought, I trusted what Dr Punit had told me and we began.
I would be lying if I said that I was not scared or stressed. Time passed by and it was really frustrating not to be able to eat the food I wanted. However everything went well in the end. The treatment lasted nearly 11 months and I had a total of 5 implants, 2 crowns , 2 root canals and a couple of filings done.
I can now be finally proud of my teeth. The infections aren't there anymore and Dr Punit restored my smile and confidence in dentists.
Most importantly I can now chew proper food. Implants are the way forward and I cannot recommending them enough.
If you are thinking about getting your smile back, do not hesitate to see Dr Punit. You will not regret it- Sauro
I had one implant and two crowns done by Dr Punit Shah, it was very well done and I can smile proudly now. I came all the way from the Caribbean to see him and I am very happy I chose him. There was no pain, no problems, and he was very professional even to explain the procedures all the way through. Thank you Dr Punit Shah.
A very professional & personal approach from all members of the team. The implant procedure was easy & went according to plan: a pleasant experience!! Thank you.
As above, like most people I'm not thrilled about having to have dental treatment. But Punit and team make the experience as painless and trauma-free as possible and I'm very, very grateful for this. I'm in the middle of a dental implant and have been very anxious about it, despite trusting Punit and his reassurance that it won't be difficult for me. Sure enough, each stage has been amazingly painless and untraumatic.
I had a really brilliant result from my recent implant procedure and its great how the process was so efficient. Normal procedures like dental hygiene are really wonderful in terms of pricing and level of services. Well done Punit and family for creating a lovely local dentist, which is better than any local NHS equivalent.
Dr Shah took away my fear of having my implant. A very efficient, kind dentist. Many thanks.
Dr Shah and his team (Laboratory) have done a great job on my front tooth crown. I was concerned about colour match and relieved that it looks so good. Thank you!
Thanks so much for the gentle and patient care during my many visits – you gave me my smile back!
Thanks again (and I promise to floss!)
Gone from feeling dental phobic to feeling totally at ease. Was perfectly secure and happy even during implant treatment I feel blessed to have found this surgery. Punit is an absolute star. I unreservedly recommend him to all dental phobics!
FANTASTIC! Beautiful care and craftsmanship from Punit and all his team – Big Thank You!
This is a treatment I had been putting off for about 15 years. It is long and expensive process and required me to be without a front tooth for 8 months. As such, a lot of good quality service and reassurance was required to get me through those months. I really did get this from Mr Shah. He explained everything that would happen in detail so that I knew what to expect. This temporary denture was excellent. The first implant looks great. As others patients have mentioned Dr Shah is very kind and gentle – not your stereotypical dentist!
Having 7 caps including a bridge over a year long period when including preparation work is a long procedure. Throughout this time I can honestly say I have been absolutely delighted. I am particularly frightened at the dentist and as such have avoided going whenever I could if only I had found this practice years ago!
In conclusion – A wonderful professional and very reasonably priced service.
Excellent. My implant surgery was worth the wait. Friendly staff and great dentist that made me feel at ease… and I'm not the best patient! Thank you very much. Very good treatment, and pleased with results. Punit was very kind and gentle and very understanding. Thank you so much!
Just had an implant, it is great already. Thank you so much. I felt really well looked after.
Doctor is super! Makes me feel comfortable and my teeth/implants are perfect. Thank you doctor!
