DentalCarePlus Reviews and Testimonials
Looking for a DentalCarePlus patient review or patient testimonial?
Our patients and our referring dentists choose DentalCarePlus for many reasons, chiefly “dental implants is what you do”, “qualified and experienced implant dentists”, “exceptional value for money, without compromising on quality of care”, “experience in complex cases, such as all on four” …
Continually meeting our patients’ expectations with their treatment and experience at DentalCarePlus means many patients are more than willing to take time to write us a testimonial. Here are a select few.
“I arrived at Dental Care Plus with a mouth full of rotten teeth, on examination by Stephen Garner told me that all my teeth had to come out, and politely told me that my month was also very infected and once the teeth were out I would feel healthier. Stephen took all my teeth out including my wisdom teeth, and guess what I never felt a thing; my old teeth were replaced with temporary dentures until my gums healed up ready for stage two. I arrived back at Dental Care Plus ready for the implants, which Stephen did in one sitting, and some weeks later, I arrived back again after my gums had healed up. None of which was uncomfortable or distressing. I have a fantastic smile and would recommend anyone who is a little bit hesitant, to try Dental Care Plus as I did. They have a very professional team in place from the lovely receptionist to the calming dental nurse Rachael who was always there to put me at ease. I feel twenty years younger and cannot stop smiling.”
“I needed a single implant for a naturally missing tooth after completing orthodontic treatment. I had been postponing the procedure for fear of pain. The least I can say is: the fear was unjustified and I wish I had it done sooner! I did experience very minimal discomfort during the procedure.
I am very grateful to have found Mr Garner’s team at DentalCarePlus Manchester. I felt very comfortable on my first visit and throughout the treatment thanks to the exceptional dental nurse Rachel. Mr Garner who is an expert in dental implants and Sana at reception who would be very accommodating when scheduling or rearranging appointments. Last but not least, the result exceeded my expectations: the implant restoration looks amazing and blends very naturally with my own teeth!
Thanks very much to the whole team at DentalCarePlus Manchester.”
“After having a fall aged 11 losing my two front teeth, I went on to have extensive dental work over the years. Aged 50 I had reached the point of needing either a full top denture or Implants. I began my research into implants, getting quoted 25k for them far too much money for me. I went to lots of different Implant Clinics they were either too expensive or I didn’t feel comfortable with them, I was seriously thinking of going abroad.
Then I came across Dental Care Plus after reading all about them I decided to make an appointment. My first point of call was speaking to Vicky she was really nice and very helpful, she made me a consultation with Ioanis who made me feel at ease straight away, my case wasn’t straight forward I had a lot of bone loss, he explained what needed to be done also it would take at least 12 months if all went well.
I went away and still did a little more research on what Ioanis had said to me also went to another couple of places but decided I felt more comfortable with Ioanis than anybody else I had spoken too.
Once I had agreed to the treatment we set a date to say I was feeling very nervous was an understatement, both Ioanis & Vicky were fantastic at explaining things.
My first procedure was having some difficult extractions & having a full arch of dentures all went well even the dentures looked good. I got given pain killers and also got a call from Vicky the next day asking if I was alright.
I went on over the next few months having bone grafts done & sinus lifts, waiting a few months before having the implants fitted… Having the implants was a scary time but it actually wasn’t as bad as I thought it would be. Everything got explained to me whilst Ioanis was carrying out the procedure both Vicky & Ioanis making me feel at ease.
After 3 months I went back to the clinic to see how things had gone, after another scan to see if all the implants had taken, turned out that 2 had failed, Ioanis said not to worry he would re do them for me no additional cost but it would delay the finished treatment by 3 months. I didn’t mind how long it took as long as the outcome was good. Another 3 months went by and the new implants had taken. After a lot of impressions taken I now have my lovely new teeth, I am really pleased with them I was never rushed we looked at the teeth decided how I wanted them to look both Ioanis & Vicky helping me , at no point was I rushed. I would definitely recommend Ioanis he is a highly skilled Implant surgeon he has restored my confidence and given me a lovely smile.
I wouldn’t hesitate in using DentalCarePlus again not only are they competitive they are extremely skilled and knowledgeable. Thank you Ioanis & Vicky.”
“I had been pondering having dental implants for several years and been for many consultations. I was unhappy with the appearance of my teeth and mainly fed up with the difficulty I was having eating any hard food. The dentists seemed worried that I did not have enough bone in the jaw to support treatment which included a couple of implants with a bridge. I did not go away feeling confident that the treatment would work.
After a lot of research I decided to go to Dental Care Plus in Almondsbury for a final consultation. What a difference! Yannis was confident that he could do the procedure including a bone graft and I had no more doubts that the treatment wouldn’t work. The surgery itself was very clean and the dental assistant was so re-assuring, friendly and helpful, she too had an implant so had first hand experience of what I was going through. The receptionist was friendly and always returned my calls straight away. They really are a very professional and happy team.
When the surgery day arrived I was very nervous, but pleasantly surprised to find that it was no more painful or unpleasant that having a root filling or crown prep and fitting. Yannis and Yvonne were very competent during the surgery, and chatted to me throughout about what was happening. After the surgery, I took some painkillers which worked well. However, I had a dull ache for a few more days than expected and was advised to return to the surgery. Yannis knew what was wrong immediately, put it right and I had no further discomfort. Yannis was absolutely spot on, with everything he told me, throughout the treatment.
I had the bridge fitted two months ago. It is so fantastic to be able to eat anything I like, the implants are rock solid, unlike the rest of my teeth. I am so thrilled with them that I am thinking of having a top bridge replaced. If you are considering implants, do go along and see Yannis, you won’t regret it. The prices are extremely competitive too.”
“Having been quoted a ridiculous, greedy price for implants in my native Bath, I went online …and found Dental Care Plus…who quoted just over half for the same treatment. You get what you pay for, I thought to myself; if it’s cheap, it must be second rate…mmmm!
Well, the first appointment is free…so…From the very first phone call, to Shelley, through the months of treatment, which wasn’t all straight forward, the whole process was excellent, professional, well organised, flexible …and exactly what Yannis had said it would be at the first interview. He takes such care to explain everything, to answer any questions; nothing is too much bother, and when there are hiccups (I had three implants), a simple phone call and everything was sorted out. Yannis and his Nurse, Yvonne, are an amazing team, good humoured and efficient whatever the situation. There were real LoL moments…pain is minimal, and Yannis’ instructions and explanations are comprehensive and helpful. He is so calm, confident and authoritative; I rapidly developed complete confidence in him…justified!
He does nothing but implants…doesn’t dabble in it, or do a couple a week. He is an expert.
If you are just looking at the website, and wondering…I promise you, the team and their work are fantastic! Their prices may be better than elsewhere (especially so if you live in Bath!) but their equipment is cutting edge, and the work done is excellent..brilliant value.
As you may have gathered, I am delighted with the work that they have done for me; I know that I can go back if there is ever a problem; I simply can’t recommend them highly enough! Shelley gives a wonderfully warm welcome, and hot drinks, on occasion!
(As a plus, the Clinic is very easy to access…and there is ALWAYS parking. For a Bathonian, that is very good news!)
I have no connection, other than as a customer.”
“I have recently completed my treatment plan with you which has involved 5 implants/crowns . Also I had insufficient bone in the gum for immediate replacement of the implants .lastly a bridge of the lower front teeth. Due to the complicated nature of the treatment, the plan took just over a year to complete. I have been very impressed with the quality of the advice , the dental care provided and the staff . Thank you all I can now eat meat again.”
“I have just finished quite extensive implant treatment at the Bristol clinic and have to say how pleased I am with both the service and the outcome. The treatment plan was carefully explained from beginning to end, there was very little discomfort considering the amount of work I had done and I am delighted with the final results.
Thank you Ioannis and the team!”
“The service from my first enquiry to my surgery (and thereafter) has been nothing but excellent and very attentive. Every step was explained thoroughly and a detailed plan was provided with associated costs. I was pleasantly surprised to find the costs highly competitive.
Every member of the team is extremely professional and they did a wonderful job of putting my nervousness at ease. The treatment itself was relatively painless and any discomfort during or after any procedure, was minor and to be expected.
I am extremely happy with the results. The new tooth fits perfectly, is aesthetically pleasing and I can enjoy eating again! I would highly recommend this wonderful clinic.“
I had suffered with gingivitis for years. I had lost some back teeth and tried to look after the ones I had left the best I could but many were loose and I knew that eventually they would all drop out as my gums deteriorated. There was an unpleasant blood loss each morning in my mouth.
I wasn’t sure what could be done as my whole mouth was involved. I had looked at the Dental Implant Centre website and at other webpages and decided to go for an assessment at the Dental Implant Centre in Bristol to find out what my options were; the price of an assessment was reasonable and would be refunded if I went through with the treatment.
From the very beginning I was treated with kindness and respect. Any questions were answered fully and I was given all the information needed to make a decision. I am so pleased that I decided to go ahead with the treatment plan that Yannis developed and my dentures and teeth look and feel great. I’ve had many compliments! And I’m starting on a great journey of rediscovery of food, able to eat different textures and enjoy new tastes. Yannis’ recommendations on shade and size were great. He always made me feel that the final choice was mine and that I was in control of the whole treatment plan – that we were working together. The other members of the team – Yvonne and Shelley – were also very friendly, helpful and supportive – not only to me but to my wife as well, looking after her while I was in the surgery.
Thanks to everyone concerned and I shall look after my new teeth and dentures as I have been taught to do. No future slip ups for me.
I would recommend anyone who has similar problems to those I had to contact the Centre and explore what can be done. I don’t think they would be disappointed.”
“Carlos Ribo is indeed an expert in his field. Very pleased with the result of my implant. Great all round professional service by Alex and others kept me informed each step of the procedure. My regular dentist has endorsed the job as very well done. 10 out of 10 for an all round great service and job. Very highly recommended.”
I wanted to send you a short note before I leave for the US at the weekend.
I quite thought that I may have had to call on you for some minor adjustment at some stage in the past couple of weeks but I’m delighted to report that the overdenture is very comfortable and entirely functional too. I’m really very happy thanks to you and the team.
I also wanted to express my gratitude to you again for managing to complete the treatment in the time frame I had available. It’s going to make a great difference to my time away this trip.
Thanks Again and Best Wishes.”
“I have had mixed experiences with dentists in London so it was a real relief to visit this practice and receive excellent care. The staff were friendly and helpful with answering my questions. As a patient I did not feel that the service was compromised by this. I would gladly recommend this practice to friends and family.”
“I have received treatment at the Manchester DentalCarePlus Implant Centre over a period of twelve months restoring my entire upper arch. As such, I can highly recommend the genius and excellent surgical skills of Mr Stephen Garner. Stephen has given me a superb smile and for that I will always be grateful. He is an expert practitioner and is thoroughly professional in his work.
I would like to mention Rachel and Chloe, who are integral team members at the Centre, and they helped to deliver a first class service.
I am delighted with the outcome of my treatment and I would strongly recommend anyone thinking of dental implants to seriously consider using this highly talented team of people.
Excellent treatment at a very competitive price. Worth every penny!
Thank you all again.”
“After a tooth split that was holding a crown I had to have it removed. This was my only extraction and I felt very self conscious as the gap where an upper tooth had been was just visible when smiling or laughing. I had a single tooth denture and tried that for a few months but was unhappy and decided to go for an implant.
I researched places and cost online and found DentalCarePlus had a very informative website, gave prices upfront whereas others didn’t and offered a free consultation. Their prices are competitive.
The centre is modern, well sited in Marlow and all members of staff pleasant, friendly and professional. From my 1st visit including a scan through the remaining ones to do all the necessary work I was treated kindly, reassured, and my questions answered.
I have attended an aftercare check up and X ray and feel confident I can call on the Centre if needed. I can highly recommend DentalCarePlus if you are thinking of having an implant or implants and you get great value for money.”
I am very pleased with my dental implants from DentalCarePlus Marlow. The benefits have justified the expense.
The team at Marlow were always friendly and professional.
I found DentalCarePlus on the internet, not by any personal recommendation. My decision to go there was simply based on the old adage that, as a rule, “it pays to patronise those who specialise”. And it did.
“I would like to say a big “Thank you” to Mr Garner, Rachel and Sana, I lost several teeth from around the time I turned 60, and was having to contemplate a partial denture. The procedure wasn’t painful once the local anaesthetic had gone in, and the information given plus the team’s professionalism, kindness & good humour, did a lot to reduce anxiety. The implants feel like my own teeth, and I appreciate the cosmetic improvement, & the fact that I can once again eat more or less what I like. The after care has been good, there have been no complications, but it is reassuring to know that you can be seen promptly should any problem arise.
I would recommend your Heald Green clinic to anyone considering implants, I’m very pleased with the results.”
As a woman in my early 20s I have had confidence issues for years over the two missing lateral incisors I had which were replaced by poor fitting bridges (which kept falling out!) by another dentist.
I was fed up of not wanting to smile on pictures and avoid eating certain foods because of no functionality with my front teeth.
I had received a couple of quotes for the two implants I needed before contacting DentalCarePlus and they were significantly more expensive than what I was charged for the work here.
I have now completed the whole process and have just had my new teeth fitted and I am so happy with the results. I can’t thank Dr Stephen Garner, Rachel and Sana enough for their professional, caring treatment of me.
I was a nervous patient and this was always considered during treatment – which was painless.
Mr J. Sullivan, Manchester
“From my first visit to DentalCare Plus , I have felt at ease and very well cared for……
It is with pleasure that I write about my experience with Mr Stephen Garner, Victoria, Rachel and Sana.
I am a very apprehensive person about any dentistry let alone implant surgery. When I arrived at the surgery Mr Stephen Garner made sure that I understood exactly what was to take place during every step of the way and he assured me that he can and will help me through the entire process.
Mr Garner and his staff could not have been more accommodating. I was seen very quickly and the quality of the care and treatment I have received has been outstanding. Having the dental work was the best investment I ever made.
The staff combines professionalism with genuine concern for the patient.
I am very grateful to have found DentalCarePlus – Mr Stephen Garner and would highly recommend your practice to anyone looking for an outstanding dental implant surgery.
Thank you for the excellent dental work and kindness you have extended to me over the past year.“
Emma Palmer, Manchester
“Following a broken tooth, I lost a dental bridge, which could not be replaced. This resulted in an unsightly gap in the front of my mouth. I was faced with wearing a denture for the rest of my life or having implant work done, I chose the latter. I am so glad that I did. The result is a smile that I can be proud of again, without the fear of a loose denture occurring and a need for its daily removal.
On my introductory visit, I realised that I would in the hands of very professional and courteous medical and practice management teams. Yannis explained the procedure in detail and with great patience. My subsequent treatment followed this comfortable path. I would have no hesitation in highly recommending this practice to anyone seeking dental implant work“.
Richard Moran, Bristol
“I am very pleased to recommend Bristol Dental Care Plus following 3 implants of molars in my upper jaws having previously lost the teeth because of abscesses. I did not fancy the idea of dentures and decided that implants was the way forward as I had gotten fed up of “eating like a rabbit” with my front teeth doing all the chewing.
Yannis and his team were brilliant, they made me feel totally at ease all the time. My appointments were fitted in to suit me and all the way through the treatment, I was informed as to what was being done and the costs involved. I paid for my treatment after each visit thus spreading the cost out over the 18 months of treatment.
I am now getting used to chewing again properly ( I had lost one of the molars over 8 years ago) and now I hardly notice the implants are there.
Thank you Yannis, Yvonne and Shelley for improving my quality of life – my mouth now feels “normal”.
Kathleen Thompson, Bristol
“I unfortunately lost two teeth close together almost at the same time. I also had a molar removed about ten years previously so my dentist had a denture made. It looked amazing and after initial discomfort I was pleased, with it. I had difficulty chewing certain foods. The worse aspect of it was that it did not fit comfortably, it moved whilst eating which hurt, even though I went back regularly for alterations. It never was perfect though. Then one day I was eating a baked potato for lunch and the denture moved and it caused excruciating pain on the roof of my mouth. Later when I got home I saw a cut in the roof of my mouth. This took a long time to heal and I could not eat very hot food. I found it affected my taste, and speech.
I decided to investigate the idea of dental implants. I went to DentalCare Plus. I found the staff very polite and soon put my at my ease.
The procedure was explained to me and I decided to do it. It involved putting the posts into my jaw, on my left side, and a Sinal lift on my right hand side for the “molar” tooth replacement. this was to lift my sinus which had moved down. In all three replacements I had to have bone powder (ground bone mixed with your own blood), as Xrays showed that my jaw bone density had diminished. It was quite normal for my age (60’s).
After this I had to wait for three months wearing my denture whilst the posts set, before I could have my teeth fitted. It was amazing the day that I had them fitted. Here I am a year later and everything is absolutely fine. I cannot thank the staff enough. I smile knowing that I have a full set of teeth, as it was quite near the front that I had lost my original teeth. I love them!
“The Manchester clinic is excellent, cannot praise the clinic enough. The team go out of their way to make you feel at ease. The treatment was not painful at any time. I would like to say thank you to DentalCarePlus Manchester for giving my smile back.”
“After loosing my two front teeth, I had a temporary denture. This was not ideal, it was soon time to find a dentist to place implants. My local dental practice in Essex was inexperienced and wanted to charge a silly amount! So I searched the internet for better alternatives. Lucky to have found DentalCarePlus. They specialize in implants and work in this field day in day out. This was very important to me.
Although travelling up from Essex, even with the train fairs it worked out far more reasonable in costs. The practice itself in London is very advanced, very friendly staff, I really could not have asked for a better service.
My implants were tricky, as I also had missing bone (void). My Surgeon Carlos fixed all these problems. Forward on a year, the final crowns are now in place. The lab are experts in shaping and colour matching, the final results are brilliant.
Thank you so much to the whole team. My confidence is slowly being restored.”
Adam G (Essex)
“Hi Victoria, just to say a big thank you to Stephen and all the staff for the excellent service provided throughout my recent implant treatment.
I chose the practice firstly for the competitive price and then asked a friend who was an orthodontist to advise me on the 3 practices I had visited and received quotes from with more detailed information. I am happy to say he picked Stephen Garner at The Manchester Dental Implant Clinic.
The treatment plan was carefully explained, costings given and best of all the procedure was performed pain free. The only inconvenience was some bruising which was to be expected. I am thrilled with the final result. Many thanks.”
“After a bridge supporting tooth on my top front jaw failed I was offered Implants by my own dentist which were 2 implants supporting a bridge across my front teeth. After surfing the net I found the DentalCarePlus website and submitted an enquiry. I was quoted the same price for 4 separate Implants as my dentist for 2 + a bridge.
Mr Emmott was extremely professional and explained all the options and the various stages of the procedure very clearly. All of the steps went as planned even the temporary plate didn’t cause too much inconvenience and the finished job looks fantastic and I am extremely pleased with the result and that I took the advice of the 4 separate Implants even though I could have had the 2 + bridge for less and I would highly recommend the service from DentalCarePlus Bristol ”
“I lost a tooth and my regular dentist said I had the choice of a gap in my smile or a plate; unless I was referred to another dentist for an implant. The first two choices were unacceptable. One was unsightly and the other was inconvenient and messy; both offended my vanity.
With this background I started to investigate implants. I left emotion behind and researched the issue as if it were a business decision. I read various internet articles until I had an understanding of the technology and process. I then made a leap in intention and decided that not only would I investigate one implant but I filling the other hidden gaps in my teeth with implants.
I attended consultations with a number of providers before I settled on DentalCarePlus. An overseas provider had some appeal particularly as I enjoy visiting Budapest. However, continuing the business decision approach, I devised criteria to evaluate all the potential providers. I had consultations with each and evaluated facilities and professionalism, cost, and after care. DentalCarePlus came top of my list.
We agreed a plan and integrated timetable and began. Thinking about it was far worse than the reality of the treatment. I had a lot of work done and when I opened my mouth the consultant would observe ‘you have got a lot going on’. However, we worked systematically through the treatment plan and eventually and joyfully came to a finish.
I have absolutely no regrets about having implants or choosing DentalCarePlus. If necessary I would have more implants and choose DentalCarePlus again. ”
“I was really impressed with the care at DentalCarePlus. Prior to the treatment I lost a baby tooth which resulted in an awkward gap in my teeth. The staff were very professional and provided me with a care plan which worked really well for my circumstances. Dr Ribo was very reassuring and ensured the treatment was comfortable and suitable for my implant.
I’d definitely recommend DentalCarePlus. Before using DentalCarePlus I’d shopped around, but the prices at DentalCarePlus were definitely the most competitive I found, and the treatment was better than I expected. ”
