Fantastic dentist changed my smile with invisible braces

I used to never smile and hated my gappy teeth. Depen changed all that when he recommended Invisalign invisible braces. Not only did they straighten my teeth the trays were comfortable and removable. So much better than metal braces!

How satisfied were you with the outcome of your treatment?Extremely satisfied. I used to hate my gappy teeth and never smiled. Depen changed all that when he recommended Invisalign treatment, not only did it straighten my teeth the trays were so comfortable and invisible! It was a godsend having removable braces compared to fixed metal train track ones. I am so much more confident now and can't stop smiling, the best dentist in Surrey 🙂
What I liked:Depen was very reassuring and put me at ease as I used to be afraid of the dentist but not any more!
What could have been improved?Nothing- service skills and manner all excellent

Overall rating for this dentist:I had come to visit Depen to fix my chipped tooth. The tooth chipped on Saturday and Depen was kind enough to squeeze me in on the Monday. He repaired my tooth and it looks better than before! My tooth was fixed quickly and it looked so natural the colour and symmetry was spot on, very happy!

Overall rating for this dentist:I found Depen earlier this year when I had bad toothache. Not only did he sort it out quickly and efficiently I found him to be friendly and thorough in his explanations. I now see him regularly and he is always very thorough and professional. I would have no hesitation in recommending him.

Overall rating for this dentist:Not only great care and consideration for the patient but also never too busy to take the time to explain what is going on. Ongoing care of your mouth is the priority rather than just selling services.

A very happy customer

Overall rating for this dentist:Due to bad experience in the past I had a great fear of dental treatment and my teeth were in a bad way. Having seen the good reviews for Depen's work, I braved it- and with his patience and professional help my dental health is restored and I now go regularly for my appointments without any nervousness whatsoever. I thoroughly recommend Depen.

Overall rating for this dentist:I have visited Dr Patel on several occasions, and had a variety of work done including fillings and a root canal and crown. Though I was quite anxious about the treatment, I have to say that Dr Patel was extremely professional and made me feel at ease. Dr Patel was able to rectify some poor work done by a previous dentist, so I am grateful to him for that. He was able to save one of my teeth by putting in a brand new root filling. What is more, I could barely feel Dr Patel's drill - judging by the feedback, I am not the first to say that!

What I liked:OK. so... I've broken my arms, elbow and toes - I'd go through that pain again. The thing I've always been terrified about was a dentist and his drill. I've been with Depen for a few weeks... And I apparently still need a bit of work. I was terrified - and today I bit the bullet, had bloody hour of it. I did not feel a thing. Thats a fact. I've have no axe to grind here... just want to help people that are scared of that drill.

What I liked:My name is Jade, I am a patient of Dr. Depen Patel and I wanted to write a testimony for Depen as I am very happy with all the treatment I have received over the past two years and I couldn't thank him enough for helping me overcome my fears of attending the dentist. I first attended the dentist in spring 2011 when I was suffering with a bad toothache which had been lasting for several months, it eventually got to the point where I could only eat on one side. My mum was the one who had recommended me to see Depen as he had really helped her with the same problem I was suffering from. I booked an appointment and he told me I would need a number of fillings done. Since then I have had numerous treatments from root canals to having teeth removed and Depen has always made me feel at ease and helped me to calm down when I have been worked up at times. His real care for patients shows as he would constantly ask if I was ok and offer me short breaks if needed during treatments, where in past experiences with other dentists they would just want to get the job done as quick as possible without caring about me being in pain or not. Now I have finished the main treatment I needed, I frequently attend my dentist for regular checkups and I am really glad I have overcome my fears of going to the dentist and would definitely recommend Dr Patel to others.

Would recommend to friends

What I liked:Before my visit to Depen I had a very deep and irrational fear of visiting the dentist which had culminated since I was a child/young adult, when I had experienced a couple of very bad appointments and also an incident which had ramped up my fear to massive proportions. I related every bad experience I had had to how treatment would be received in the future. I was unable to visualise visiting a dentist let alone being able to sit and wait for an appointment to resolve and seek dental help. I had not been to the dentist in many years and could not face the prospect of subjecting myself to the stress of an appointment or the deep shame I felt from the way I had let my dental health suffer. I was deeply unconfident and unhappy about the condition they were in and felt this, with my fear of the dentist, had built up to something that I felt I could never conquer. This came to a head when I chipped and then subsequently lost one of my front teeth I work in an environment where I speak to a lot of people and had always been severely affected with my confidence and with how I spoke to people often balancing my chin on my hand so that I could cover my mouth as I was very conscious of the fact that not only had I lost one of my front teeth but the condition of the other teeth weren't the greatest and I was acutely aware of this. From my very first visit Depen made me feel at ease and sought to seek out why I was so nervous and frightened, he spent time talking to me to find out the deep rooted issues of why I would sit in the dental chair and physically shake from nerves. I never once felt judged (I had imagined many times a dentists' look of disgust during the examination at the condition I had let myself get into), I always felt reassured with the calm, factual information that Depen gave at every stage of my first examination. I left the appointment feeling positive and a little more confident. On my second visit I had the missing front tooth replaced with a temporary fix again I was struck with severe nerves and panic and had built the treatment up to massive scary proportions. Once again from the moment I walked in and sat in the chair Depen sought to ease my nerves and make sure I was totally at ease with every step of the process, talking to me in a calm and reassuring manner. My third visit was a little more complex in terms of how I was feeling as I was due to have substantial work which would involve several issues that made me feel physically sick with nerves and caused me sleepless nights and lots of thoughts about how I could not go through with it. I even sat in the car for 20 minutes before I could get out and walk into the surgery. I benefitted from Depen talking to me at every single step of the treatment telling me what he would be doing, how he would be doing it and more importantly that I could take a break at any point of the procedure. He reassured me about the numbing process and talked to me about what he would be doing every single step of the way from the numbing to the drilling to the cleaning. Not at any point did I feel that I wanted to get up from the chair and run. It was a long appointment and although I still had nerves I never felt uncomfortable, panicked or misinformed. The process of talking about the treatment and a treatment path as well as Depen's great attitude and helpful, friendly reassuring manner has made me feel much more at ease with visiting the dentist. Without these things I'm sure I would still be the scared frightened patient I was at the start. I can't thank him enough for how he has transformed my perception of a visit to the dentist and for giving me the start of a great smile.

Friendly dental service!

What I liked:My name is Sandra and I am a patient of Dr. Depen Patel. I am writing this testimony to express my gratitude for the services I have received from Dr. Patel over the past two years. I have always had difficulty attending dental appointments due to past experiences in other surgeries; my main problem being caused by an acute gag reflex. This has caused me not only pain, but embarrassment, which then lead to me abandoning dental visits entirely. In the summer of 2010 I was overcome with an excruciating tooth pain. Torn between getting help for my pain and having to relive the terrible fear of visiting a surgery once more, I returned to my original surgery to see my old dentist no less than 2 years after my last visit. In that time my dentist had left the surgery and so I was left with the terrible pain and no dentist. However, my husband was attending a different surgery at the time,which he recommended I visit; with no other choice I booked an appointment. In November 2010 I was introduced to Dr. Patel in which he tried to assess the problem. I told him of my fear of Dentistry, but, at once, he put my mind at ease. Using a very careful means of tooth examination he was able to discover an infection in my tooth; I was amazed by the treatment I had received. Dr. Patel had been gentle, careful, given me breaks to calm myself and had taken his time to examine. From then on, I have visited Dr. Patel frequently as he had put me completely at rest. I have received Root Canals and Crowns from him in the past and, at this moment in time, I am in the process of receiving Cosmetic Treatment to re-aline my bottom set of teeth; this, I have absolutely no fear of. I know that Dr. Patel will look after me and meet my unique needs and I can guarantee an excellent service already. I hope this letter can show what a professional Dentist Dr. Patel is and what an outstanding service I have received, and will receive in the future.
