“I am delighted with my new smile!”

I would like to express my thanks to all staff at the Dorridge branch of One Dental Clinic for the treatment I have just received from them.

I wanted my upper front teeth straightened and from my first contact with the receptionist at the clinic I found the service I received was always very courteous and helpful.

I had my initial consultation with Gursh when he explained the choices of treatment available to me he was very willing to answer all of my questions. This was then followed up in writing with my 3 options and I was given time to think about which would suit me best and also to talk to family about which course they thought I should take.

I proceeded with the course of treatment which necessitated bridge work and 4 crowns
this involved several lengthy appointments.

Both the receptionists and the dental nurse were always friendly and on the days
following longer procedures Erin would phone to see how I felt.

Gursh was always very understanding answered my numerous questions and always
explained what he was about to do. The atmosphere in the surgery was always very
relaxed.

I am delighted with my new smile! The crowns are a perfect match to my existing teeth and it is wonderful to have straight teeth at last!! I was recently at a function with friends where we were having our photographs taken they said they didn’t want to be next to me because I would show up their teeth! I have had such complimentary comments from both family and friends.

Finally I must say that I felt really valued as a patient and found the whole atmosphere in the clinic very personal and friendly. Each visit was a pleasure.

Thank you to you all especially Gursh! You’ve made such a difference to me. Looking forward to seeing you in 6 months!

“I am totally satisfied with the end result and would highly recommend this clinic!”

Some time ago I had to replace my ill fitting full lower denture. The denture I had at the time needed fixing in place before every meal and even then would compete with my food, very often winning. I gave the matter a great deal of thought and decided that my quality of life was important to me and did not relish always having this problem.

I had read a great deal about dental implants and decided to ask more about the procedure, how long it took and of course, how much it would cost. An enquiry later got me a phone call from a dental practice in Dorridge, One Dental Clinic, an appointment for an examination was made and I arrived, with some trepidation I might add, and was seen by Dr. Faresh Desai. My fears left me as soon as we met, I felt completely at ease and he explained the whole procedure to me. No further encouragement was needed I said ‘OK let’s do it’. I have, over my life, been to many dental practices, but this particular practice seemed different somehow and that became more so as the appointments came and went. They listen, all of them. The date of the implant surgery came, but instead of feeling apprehensive I felt excited. I sat down, was sedated, which was brilliant and I woke to find it had all finished.

Kevin Thomas is the Clinical Dental Technician who teams up with Faresh to produce amazing dentures, the sort that you forget are in the mouth.

A couple of months later came ‘fitting’ day and it was an exciting experience. Working together, Faresh prepared my implants to accept the newly worked denture by Kevin, nothing was overlooked. It was an experience like no other with regard to denture wearing.

I am totally satisfied with the end result and would highly recommend this clinic and the team who look after you completely. Well done you guys!

Sincerely,

Peter R (aged 82 3/4)

Dr Kunal Patel

I qualified in 2010 from The University of Sheffield. I enjoy carrying out all aspects of Dentistry, and my passion and area of expertise is adult orthodontics and cosmetic dentistry. Since qualifying I have attended many post-graduate courses worldwide to further my knowledge in the dental field. I have sat and passed post graduate royal college of surgeon exams and am continually studying, attending courses and pushing myself to further my knowledge in the dental field.

I was pleased with my finalist award for 'Best young dentist of the year' in the Midlands by The Dentistry Awards 2015.

For me, being a dentist is all about getting to know my patients and understanding their dental concerns – it's not just about performing the treatment itself. I care about what I do, and endeavour to work to the best of my abilities in providing service and quality dental care to my patients.

I have completed:

  • 12 month certificate course with Chris Orr in advanced cosmetic dentistry
  • Yorkshire Sedation training

I am certified provider of:

  • Six Month Smile
  • Smilelign
  • Inman aligner
  • IAS Clear Brace
  • Enlighten teeth whitening

As well as these certification courses, I have attended numerous one or two day shorter courses and lectures around the UK.

If I'm not behind a dental chair, you will find me either trying to go to the gym or in the driving range trying to make it on the golf course!
