After a number of bad experiences with dentists, I had developed a severe fear of dental treatment and had not visited a dentist for years. Eventually I was unable to eat properly and couldn’t sleep - the severe pain and an infection forced me to begin looking for a new dentist. After searching online I contacted Impressions Dental Care and in trepidation I booked an appointment. I need not have worried - Impressions Dental Care is incomparable. After a new patient examination, I was booked in for two sessions of treatment of two hours each. I was given an IV sedative and although I remained conscious during the treatment, I did not experience any pain or discomfort whatsoever - it really was amazing. Marlita (dentist), and Louise and Adele (nurses), radiate compassion and calm - Marlita, Louise and Adele are the epitome of professionalism - throughout my treatment nothing was too much trouble for them - they were always so patient and helpful in explaining and answering my questions. Marlita has a gentle touch and a quiet confidence which put me at ease from the very beginning. I am so glad to have found Impressions Dental Care and I look forward to my check-up in November.

When eating something hard I broke a front tooth clean off, well you can Imagine what I looked like when I smiled, something had to be done, the trouble was that the last time I visited a dentist was 50 years ago!   When I was 13 years old I had a bad experience with a dentist and never returned, but now I had no choice but to return to a dentist to have my tooth replaced, I found Impressions by looking on the internet, and was very impressed by their web page.   I decided to pay them a visit first of all and speak to someone to find out what could be done, so in I went, the receptionist was very helpful and sent me upstairs to have a chat with the practice manager, who spent some 20 minutes explaining the options to me, and recommended I see Marlita who did cosmetic dentistry.   It seemed a very nice place, and everybody was so nice, so I took a deep breath and booked to see Marlita. She was so kind and reassuring, and explained the best way to have my tooth replaced, so I booked an appointment with her there and then.   After an ex-ray and mould was completed the day came when the job had to be done, well Marlita and her trainee were absolutely brilliant, so reassuring and kind, needless to say the treatment was completed without any problems at all.   I was so pleased with my replacement tooth and cannot praise Impressions enough, so if like me, you are uncertain or afraid to go to a dentist then contact Impressions and have a chat, you will I am sure take the plunge and make an appointment.

I am writing this to say a big thank you, which I dont think even covers how I feel, for all that you have done for me over the past couple of months. I have had a dental phobia now for approximately 20 years and from that first telephone call to your practice and chat with chris, to my first visit and chat with Marlita, I cannot praise you enough for helping me to get on the road to combat this phobia. The sedation treatment was a god send and I was very confident as I felt I was in safe hands with all your staff. Many thanks once again.

I have been treated with kindness and respect, and with a great deal of understanding. the sedation used ment i did not know anything about it and would recommend it to anyone with a phobia. I no longer dred going to the dentist.

These last five months have been awful for me and if my husband had not found Impressions Dental Care, I don’t know what I would have done. To you Chris, thank you for being so kind and patient with me and for listening to me ranting on about what had been happening. For you Sam thank you for being so kind and patient with me and for at last getting my tooth out and for you Adele thank you for holding my hand and making me feel that you cared about my well being.

Prior to becoming a patient of Impressions Dentists, I had had a number of very bad experiences, and had over a number of years developed a very bad dental phobia, to the point where even phoning a dentist for an appointment would take a number of days of anxiety. I approached Impressions earlier this year and immediately felt as if they could help. The receptionist on the phoning was calming and reassuring. and even arranged for me to meet with Marlita (Dental Surgeon) prior to having any treatment agreed to discuss my past experiences and concerns. Marlita had a long discussion with me, where she asked me for detailed information about my dental work in the past and my current concerns about coming to a dentist. She talked through all of the options that would be available to me and allowed me to make decisions based on how I felt I could cope with treatments needed. In the end, a short term and long term plan was drawn up to allow me to cope with the current issues with my mouth and then longer term options that would eventually allow me to come to the dentist without being utterly petrified. Prior to coming to Impressions I really felt that if Impressions let me down, I would NEVER go to the dentist again, as I had had enough negative experiences in the past to know that if things went wrong this time - I was done. Impressions did NOT let me down and I know that for the rest of my life, if they are in practice, I will be one of their patients. I have been to the practice 5 times and I have seen Marlita twice for treatment, where I opted to have IV sedation. Rather than spending an hour in the dentists chair scared and crying, I was relaxed and I believe I even had a little sleep. I far cry from my previous dentist’s practices where I felt I was on a conveyor belt and was physically hurt. Impressions treatment, reassurance, and follow up care is second to none, and I know that in the coming years my son, who is now only a small baby, will come with me to the dentist and never develop a phobia like I did, as he will have complete confidence in the team and never associate going to the dentist with anything negative. It is no exaggeration to say that Marlita, Chris and the whole dental team are caring professionals, who work with you towards gaining confidence in dentistry and any treatment needed and without their help and support I would NEVER have got to the point where I can say I have a healthy mouth. I cannot speak highly enough for Impressions Dentists, and if you feel you have reached the point where you cannot go to the dentist and that no one can help you, then call Impressions. I promise you - they can.
