What Our Patients Think

Barbara Higgs

I have only been a patient of yours for a couple of months and on my first visit I declared myself to be a nervous patient (aka wimp).

Last Tuesday, I had a filling done by Lara and I would-like to say that I am very pleased with the treatment and also the way I was treated. Lara couldn’t have been kinder or more considerate, so please could you pass on my thanks to her.

Having recently completed a course of root canal treatment at Courthouse Dental Practice I would have no hesitation in recommending Courthouse Dental Practice and in particular Dr Patel for dental work. Being a nervous dental patient it is of great reassurance to find a dentist who is not only approachable, professional and efficient but also sympathetic to the needs of the nervous patient.

The treatment journey from start to finish was clearly explained as were the costs involved which allowed me to make informed choices on my treatment options.

The work carried out was of a very high standard, went smoothly and, most importantly for me, comfortably. Dr Patel is a particularly personable dentist and the practice as a whole is friendly and well organised.

Dear Dr Patel, I would like say a few words to express my complete satisfaction from the service that I recently received from the practice and how happy I am now. With regards to my discoloured tooth, I was getting very conscious of the fact that it appeared to be getting browner every month so with your recommendation of the treatments you suggested which was very well explained to me and the further treatment of whitening the rest of my teeth and straighten my two front teeth. I can honestly say how happy I am to now have a whiter smile which I am no longer conscious of and glad to show off.

I believe that the practice carried out all of my treatments at very reasonable prices and would most certainly recommend yourself and the practice to all my friends and family, it is nice to have finally found a dentist whom I believe is very thorough and caring.

Mrs Greig

I have recently gone through having a partial metal replacement tooth fitted. I found Dr Raoul Patel to be very informative and kind throughout my treatment, always giving me honest and helpful answers to all my questions. The Courthouse Dental Practice made my whole treatment as stress free as possible and I can now smile and eat again with confidence! I have no hesitation in recommending Dr Raoul Patel and the Courthouse Dental Practice.

From reception to treatment my experience with the Courthouse Dental Practice has been second to none. Always a relaxed and friendly atmosphere. Dr Raoul Patel has always given me clear advice as to the treatment I have needed in a professional and reassuring manner. I have had a dental plate replaced with a bridge, at his suggestion and this has been such a big success.

Given me a boost of confidence. Without, doubt, I would recommend the Courthouse Dental Practice to anyone, knowing full well that they would receive the utmost care and attention.

Mr Grant

To whom it may concern, I had a disastrous visit to a school dentist at 14 years of age and only returned to them when obliged to under my employment regulations at 21. For the first three years I was so anxious that I had a general anaesthetic before I was finally persuaded to trust an injection only. Even then, I would gip the chain until my hands were white.

A good number of years ago I moved to New castle where, I found a wonderful dentist, so much so that for over 10 years I travelled north from my home above to be treated by tum.

However, knowing this was not sustainable, I sought out a dental practice nearer home. On the 6th attempt I discovered Dr Raoul Patel about a year ago, and he has been the best dentist I have ever known.

The factors that distinguish his practice one that he talks you through and during the procedure, nothing comes as a surprise, he is extremely patient and courteous at all times, and always puts me at ease. In fact, he made me feel like I was the his only patient he had and that is a special quality. I recommend hum unreservedly.

Mr Mepham

He is so good I persuaded my wife to charge her dentist! PS. I am extremely happy that dental problem that his dogged me for 50 years has been resolved with excellent results. Thank you P.RS I must add that the service of the Reception Staff and Dental Nurses is just great.

I saw Laila the hygienist and highly recommend her service. Not only did Laila do a wonderful job of cleaning, but she also provided expert oral care advice for the maintenance and protection of my teeth. Laila was so helpful and professional and has such a wonderfully warm manner that I felt relaxed, comfortable and confident with a process I have normally felt nervous about in the past. Thank you, Laila!!! I am genuinely looking forward to my next appointment with you.
