You are all stars
Dear Mitesh, Linda, and all the other lovely staff,
Thank you so much for all your continued help and support.
You are all stars.
Root Canal Treatment
Just a note to thank you for your patience, kindness and understanding with my two recent visits for root canal treatment.
I’ve just had the second crown fitted and it’s lovely to smile again with it causing me so much pain.
In fact it was wonderful to have been able to smile so freely with a temporary crown at my daughter’s wedding, a really happy day for everyone.
Sadly my fear of dentistry will probably be always with me but at least I know that with empathy and modern technology I can face it again if I have to.
Me and My Dentures
I had a really bad time as a child with the dentist in the 1970’s and it stayed with me right through my growing years, I was extremely nervous around dentists, in actual fact I was petrified of the dentist, until I came into contact with Linda Blakely at Devon Dental Centre of Excellence.
I had bad gums and had to have my top teeth removed and now have been wearing a top set of dentures for 5 years. Linda looked after me and put me at peace, I have been so pleased with my dentures and even take them out and chase the kids with them to show them what happens if they don’t look after their teeth.
My dentures have become part of me and I can’t express in words how happy I am with them, all the worry I had was erased and people don’t even know I wear dentures, I couldn’t be more pleased with them and the treatment I have received from Linda Blakely and the entire team.
Dear Dr Linda,
My thoughts on how my life has changed since having a special appliance fitted by Dr Linda Blakley.
I was suffering from headaches, deafness, not sleeping properly and my mouth sometimes refused to open making me have to push food through a tiny space in my teeth.
Whats was happening? I was recommended by the Ocular Care Therapist to talk to Dr Linda.
After receiving careful and painless intricate treatment I am now a different person. The headaches and deafness have gone, my mouth now opens properly with a relaxed jaw and my brain is no longer defending itself against pain.
For anybody who suffers from even some of the symptoms just consider having this treatment, it is so good when using the computer, driving, concentrating and of course no more grinding teeth!

Dear Linda and Amy
Now that you finished my treatment I would like to write and thank everyone for the excellent personal service you gave me. This is the first time ever that my fear of the dentist was dealt with. Your team were wonderful and I simply cannot believe I came to your treatment centre so many times feeling relaxed and calm.
On each appointment you took the time and care to inform me what was planned and how you were going to do each particular session. You transformed my fear of the dentist to actually getting a work colleague to visit your practice because she had the same fears and we both ended your treatments looking forward to coming as you made the experience stress-less and pain free.
I cannot thank you enough, the end result is even more spectacular as everyone has noticed how nice my teeth are sol I feel I must give you all a truly grateful, heart felt thank you.
Dental Implant Nurses Course
As a dental nurse, I came to the course with a bit of experience having already assisting with dental implants. I had gained some skills and confidence in my workplace but the course meant that I learnt more of the theory so I could now improve my performance. The course gave me opportunity to really understand the whole subject of dental implants and the nurse and dentists providing the course were very approachable and explained the subject so it was very clear to me. With the combination of theory and practical tasks it was an enjoyable learning experience. It was great to get hands on and place my own implant and to also watch the nurses setting up using the proper asepsis techniques. This course gave me more confidence, knowledge and the skills to do my job to a high standard as a qualified dental care professional

When I first considered implants, naturally I was nervous and anxious as I am not normally a very brave person. However, from the time that I entered your practice I was treated with the utmost courteousness and consideration.
You obviously take a great deal of trouble choosing your staff as, without exception, they are all most friendly, helpful and encouraging .
From the beginning and throughout my treatment I have been treated with professionalism and kindness by you and all the staff. In fact, I have felt part of your "family" and enjoy visiting the surgery when I need follow-up treatment.
On one occasion, when I had a problem at a weekend, you treated me when you were unwell which was much appreciated.
So many people have problems with dentures as I did for a short time that I had them, and I am so glad that I had implants fitted.
Whenever the occasion arises I always recommend implants and without hesitation, recommend your practice if they want a professional and first class job done. I will gladly speak to any of your patients who are apprehensive of commencing treatment, if only to reassure them.
You have given me back my confidence as I no longer need to hide my mouth behind my hand when talking. I naw feel like a new woman for which I thank you and all your staff.
With kind regards,

You asked me to drop you a note concerning my experience with your practice. I have been a patient for the past three years during which a lifetime's partial neglect of my teeth came home to roost so I have been a regular visitor to your premises.
My first impression was what a beautiful reception I received as I walked in the door and met for the first time the wonderful smile and tremendous effciency known as Liz. She exuded confidence and clearly knew what she was talking about. As I met other girls from the front reception I came to realise this was the norm not the exception.
My first treatment with you personally immediately confirmed my expectation that you would carry out your work with a deep knowledge of modern practice and delivered with courtesy and skill. I quickly began to appreciate that you were working using the vanguard of modern practise. Later I was transferred to Anne-Marie Smith who was a delight to deal with. Once again a very skilled practitioner and someone I have come to think of as a friend.
I fully endorse your practice for the award that you are applying for and I must admit that I can think of no criticism of what you do.
