Letters from Phobic Patients
Dear Shrik and staff
I am writing this letter purely to thank you and your staff for the excellent treatment I received, also for the way you managed to make me relax and lose my fear of dentists. I think that happened because of my trust in your abilities. Once again many thanks and I look forward to seeing you all at my next appointment in 6 months time.
As you have know I had not visited a dentist in over 8 years. Because of my experiences of dentists in the past had been quite bad, my teeth were not in a healthy state at all, with lost fillings, broken and chipped teeth nearly down to my gums. I had gaps which stopped me from smiling properly, always covering my mouth with my hand or looking away. I knew I needed extensive work doing. My sister, who lives near to your practice and is a patient of yours recommended I try you saying you were sympathetic to one suffering from such fears of the dentist.
On that first visit, I was so, so nervous. I heard things like root canals, crowns and bridges which filled me with absolute horror as one of my biggest dreads was having to have injections to start these procedures with, I hated injections!
After 10 visits to you my teeth look really good now. I want to thank you very much, not only for saving all my teeth and giving me a confident smile, (I do not have any gaps now) but also for the time you took in making sure I was fully aware of what you intended to do by explaining every procedure and what to expect during each treatment. It gave me so much confidence. You put me at ease from the very first visit and I continued to feel relaxed right the way through all the treatments. You have taken every fear of going to the dentist away, I can honestly say you did not hurt me once during the whole of the treatment, and I didn't even feel the injections!
You are a wonderful dentist with a lovely calming disposition and I would not hesitate in recommending you at all and in fact have already been recommending you to my friends and other relatives, and will continue to do so. If anyone would like to ask me personally about my treatments I would be more than happy to speak with them.
Once again thank you very much for all that you have done and 'see you in six months'!

I didn't want to change my identity, just wanted to look less tired and I feel the wrinkle reduction injections helped me to do this.
- Joesephine Smile Essential
I wanted something enhanced my natural beauty and natural to me means that it is a better version of me, but still is me. I did this for me. It only matters that I see the difference.

I've received so many compliments since my treatment, but what people say: you look good. You look happy.

Thank you for making me feel so relaxed when I came to see you for my fillings. Like many people the dentist is not my favourite place to visit but your calm manner put me totally at ease. I am very pleased with my new white fillings and look forward to my next appointment.
