Michelmersh, Romsey

Treatment: Karen – Cosmetic Dentistry          Colin – Dental Crowns

Karen: For 15 years I hated my oddly shaped front teeth and my “Dracula” eye teeth, looking at photos I realised I was smiling less and less. Sam created two fantastic crowns to replace my front teeth, people are always surprised when they find out my front teeth are crowns – they look so natural and are a great colour match to the rest of my teeth. Smoothing off my “Dracula” eye teeth and my new front teeth gave me back so much lost confidence. Thanks to Sam I now smile all the time!

Colin: As a child growing up in the 1960s and 70s I endured some of the worst dental experiences those years had to offer.  All I remember is being told to “sit down and be brave”, multiple tooth extractions and worst of all, the use of ‘gas’ as the anaesthetic. To this day I can still smell it!  The end result left me flatly refusing any dental care throughout my 20s, 30s and into my 40s, unless driven by excruciating toothache to seek some emergency attention. To say I was scared was an understatement!! Eventually, in 2004, my concerns of possible long-term tooth decay, potentially losing my teeth as became older, coupled with some gentle persuasion by my wife, convinced me to visit Sam at Romsey Dental Care.

From my very first visit it was clear that things had changed dramatically from my earlier recollections of dentistry.  I was put very much at ease and felt for the first time that I actually had some say in my dental treatment.  The first visit was a chat and a look at my teeth without using any instruments at all.  My second visit was only a few days later, with the help of a mild sedative, to allow a proper examination to be carried out.  At that stage I was very lucky and after my years of neglect I only needed some minor treatment to follow.  This time I managed without the sedative and my experience was as good as it was possible to imagine it could be, and from that point I never looked back.

In the years since I crossed my mental barrier I have received treatments I could previously hardly speak of, including root canal work and a crown which included my old nemesis, the upper/lower mouth impression !!  In preparation I was shown techniques to desensitise my mouth and my hair-trigger gag reflex.  In the past I would never have imagined I would willingly opt to receive any of these treatments.

Sam and her team have given me the confidence to have regular check-ups and hygienist appointments ever since.  I will always have a slight moment of trepidation when I step through the door into the surgery but my days of mortal dread have now long gone.  I cannot recommend Romsey Dental Care highly enough and for those potential patients who could be described as ultra-anxious, as I was, I would urge you to give it a try.  My fears dated back for decades and I am so grateful to Sam and all of her team for helping me to overcome them.

Treatment: Dental Bridge

Following many years of discomfort with my teeth and gums, not being happy with how my teeth looked and wanting to be able to show a very proud smile at my daughter’s wedding. I decided to seek professional dentistry. I browsed the Internet in search of a local dental practice and was immediately attracted to Romsey Dental Care. Reading previous reviews assured me that they cared about the professional service they offered.
My first contact by telephone confirmed my thoughts, I was immediately made to feel that not just the dentist but the whole team were going to look after me.
When you first arrive at the practice, again you are made to feel so welcome. I can honestly say that everyone you meet makes you feel so assured that you are going to receive a first class service. From the moment I settled down in the dentist chair for the first time until I finally left the practice after the completion of agreed treatment, I was given a full explanation of my treatment plan and the best care for my teeth in the future. My new look has cured the gum problems I had, but most importantly has given me the confidence to smile more, therefore making me feel a lot happier. Can’t thank you enough Sam.

Treatment: Smile Makeover

Before my visit to Romsey dental care my smile was very guarded, I would normally cover my mouth with one hand during conversation. Since treatment with Sam I have a broad smile and am confident to show my teeth. The treatment plan was clearly explained, and the care from Sam and her staff was excellent.

Treatment: Cosmetic Dentistry and Tooth Whitening

I originally came to Romsey Dental Care for routine dental work and would highly recommend them, the whole team have always been very helpful and friendly. I’ve since had my teeth whitened and some minor cosmetic work too, which was surprisingly straightforward and Sam was great at guiding me through the process. I’m really pleased with the results and if anyone is contemplating having dental work done I would definitely advise talking to Sam.

Other delighted patients:

‘I wanted to write you this email to personally thank you Kevin, for the professional care and approach you and your team provided me with last week. I have gone through almost 9 months of pain and difficulty both with my lower left molar tooth, and the unprofessionalism of “other” dentists. From my initial phone call to you, right through to last Friday’s extraction, your practice has been nothing but exemplary and given me real hope again that good care and treatment is out there and available – you just need to know where to look. My wife and 2 children will now be switching to you, and I am pleased to know that any future dental work is in safe hands.’ SV

‘Exceptional treatment. Pain free and very quick.’ BG

‘Just wanted to say thank you as you did a brilliant job on repairing my mother’s front tooth who was fitted in on an emergency appointment a day or two before Christmas. I was in a panic that drenching day when all went wrong for her and knew your practice is highly regarded so consider us lucky you had a slot available.
As she was staying with us for 3 weeks it could have been a disaster for her if a temporary tooth didn’t hold over that period and she would have felt on a downhill slide to crumbling. She said you took a lot of care and we are all very grateful. She has had an X ray at your suggestion and her dentist said all was well with the gum etc and he was very impressed with your work.’
