A BIG THANK YOU for your caring and excellent dental treatment which I have had. You not only provide such a high standard of Professional care but apply it with such enthusiasm and are a credit to your profession. I will have no hesitation of recommending your practice – your staff also compliment your service.
So thanks to all of you.
After some 20 years of having no dentist due to my terror of the entire species, I broke a tooth and was forced to seek urgent treatment. This led me to Meopham Dental Care a short distance from my home. I was seen quickly and relieved of the pain effortlessly it seemed to me, although it had taken poor Alison some time to coax me into the chair! Gradually over the next few visits to sort out age old problems I began to trust Alison completely and have now even had fillings (albeit without the terrifying drill) and an extraction. If I had found this practice years ago I would have had wonderful teeth and a few more of them.
I am moving shortly to Norfolk and intend to return on a regular basis for my check ups and also to see the Hygienist who is part of the practice and also a much trusted professional.
If there's anyone else out there with a 60 year old phobia relating to dentists, please see Meopham Dental Care at your earliest opportunity. You like me will be eternally grateful.
Having been rather neglectful of my teeth for some time and at the stage where they were beginning to loosen and even come out I decided it was time to act!
I consulted Alison who was really positive about the course of action needed. The treatment has been carried out painlessly and very efficiently. I am now able to smile with confidence and eat much more easily!
Thank you to all the team at Meopham Dental Care who have always been most polite and accommodating. I have no hesitation in telling anyone who needs treatment that they should look no further than this practice.
I have been a patient for nearly 4 years and over that time Alison and her very professional and dedicated team have provided excellent care to me, my teeth and gums! Over the last year, I have been receiving specific additional treatment for implant work which has just recently been completed. I therefore wanted to pass on my sincere thanks for the well informed, considerate care and attention given along this difficult path; in order to successfully achieve the brilliant outcome we have. My appreciation is sent to Alison and each and every one of her wonderful team including Fadi and Paul. In closing, I would confirm that I would highly recommend Meopham Dental Care and will always remain one of your patients.
Superb treatment throughout. Denture extremely well fitted. Excellent advice and service given.
I used another dentist for many years, but became unhappy with their service and so I changed to Meopham Dental Care and have now been with Alison since she took over the practice. She worked out a long term plan to change all my ancient Amalgam fillings and to take care of some other problems, and each treatment resulted in a noticeable improvement, even curing a gum problem that I wasn’t aware of. Recently she successfully tackled a painful and distressing jaw and root canal problem at very short notice. I cannot speak highly enough of Alison and her confident, friendly and professional team and would add that the surgery is a most pleasant and relaxing environment. I would recommend anyone to Meopham Dental Practice.
Needing substantial repairs to a number of my teeth, I asked Alison to review the situation. She clearly explained a plan of action, including procedures and costings, then carried out the dentistry required with sensitivity, precision and expertise. I cannot speak too highly of the professionalism demonstrated over the last few months and the impressive results achieved by Alison and her team. Thank you.
I hope that this will add to your many deserved commendations.
Many thanks again.
Despite being old enough to know better, I was as nervous as a kitten, but from the first visit I have found the standard of care to be exemplary. It is very reassuring to have the proposed treatment and possible options fully explained, and I have developed confidence in the skill and experience of Alison and her team. Well done!
My best dentist. Wow job!
Patient LB (aged 7 years)
Having not visited a dentist for several years it was with some worry with all the level of work I knew was needed. From reception through to treatment they made me feel comfortable and relaxed and explained the work needed each step of the way. The end result is great and I would not hesitate in recommending to others.
Since I moved to the south east Alison has been my dentist for the last ten years. The quality of her work has been exceptional and the procedures she has carried out have given me the best dental health and smile I've ever had.
In particular, the use of implants and the In-Line orthodontic system have transformed my teeth. Coupled with regular check ups and the exemplary work of the in house hygienist it is a complete dental service.
In summary, Alison's practice delivers good old fashioned high quality service standards with cutting edge dentistry. For me, that's a winning combination.
Alison and the team have been treating my 2 daughters and myself since 2010 and I have to say the treatment and level of service we have received has been fantastic and consistently good. With the girls it has all been about preventative care and the team have helped educate them in how to look after their teeth as well as performing seals to prevent decay. I have been treated for a range of things from acute toothache which led to root canal treatment to fantastic cosmetic work such as teeth whitening as well as beautiful veneers. The team from the moment you walk in to when you leave make you feel special and offer a bespoke level of care tailored to your needs. The true test for me is when I'm asked "would you recommend them to a friend" and in the case of Meopham Dental Care - ABSOLUTELY!
I am so grateful to Alison and her team, after being so upset after losing a tooth near the front of my mouth I really hated the gap. Having had an implant my smile has been transformed. Alison was so professional during the implant, I felt completely relaxed as I knew she was in complete control. That then gave me the confidence to have my teeth whitened, I have never had so many compliments. I travel a long way to Meopham dental practice their care is exceptional. I am extremely grateful.
A very good dentist. I love it! And if you get scared then they reassure you. And I like that! Thank you for doing my painting on my tooth! Thank you. (Patient aged 11)
Dear Alison, Becky, Karen, Sarah, Louise and Kerry,
I wanted to show my appreciation for being sooo good with me! You have no idea how anxious I was about coming in but you had me enjoy the journey! (Nearly!) Thank you again.
I love you all!
p.s I promise to be a good boy and come in regular
I would like to commend Alison for the excellent dental care both my husband and myself have received.
Her attention to detail along with her full explanations of any dental work required is always appreciated.
Dear Alison, Just wanted to send a quick email to thank you for the work that you did on my teeth and for making me feel confident to smile again. I was with a group of people the other day and talk turned to teeth. This would have made me want to get up and leave before I came to see you. But I sat there and smiled and someone said "You've got nice teeth". A simple comment but one that kept me smiling, because I never thought anyone would ever say that about my teeth! Many thanks for your professional, efficient service, and the excellent advice and treatment that I received. Wish I had come to you years ago!
I have been put off having some necessary dental work for years as I am a very nervous patient. Alison has done a brilliant job. She was very patient and understanding and explained everything so I knew exactly what to expect. All the costs involved were fully explained so I knew exactly where I stood. I am so glad I found this practice. Thank you so much, I only wish I had had the work done earlier.
I would like to take this opportunity to say thank you to Alison, Mr F Barrack, Paul Dumpleton and her professional team for giving me back my smile and the confidence to eat in public without discomfort increasing the selection of foods I can now eat.
Alison always clearly spelt out the treatment plan & implant options taking into consideration what was important to me throughout the process. The treatment plan was spread over 1 year and included a sinus lift. I never felt any great discomfort and always felt in safe hands.
Smile Design created a high quality implant bridge with the colour, fit and design integrating into my own teeth perfectly.
Appointments were always convenient to my work schedule. A massive thank you to you all on the outstanding results.
I will definitely be using & would recommend Meopham Dental Care to friends & colleagues.
Following surgery and radiotherapy to my head and neck, I have been left with on-going specific dental needs which seemed to be beyond normal dentists - but then I was highly recommended, by my sister-in-law, to visit Alison at Meopham Dental Care, and I have never looked back.
Alison, with her wealth of dentistry knowledge, and her very professional and friendly team, have addressed all my dental issues with the minimum of fuss, with a practical, adaptable, down-to-earth, but very caring and friendly attitude.
Meopham Dental Care resides in a lovely modern, inviting, clean building, with no chemical or surgical smells to remind you that you are, in fact, visiting the Dentist.
I would just like to thank Alison and her wonderful team for the cosmetic work done on my teeth. It has changed my smile that I hated to one that I am proud of and given me much more confidence! It was the best thing I ever did. I would recommend Alison and her friendly team to anyone. Once again, thank you.
Dear Alison and her team, A big thank you for helping to cure me of my dentist phobia and giving me the confidence to smile!
After several years of usage of my old denture they had disappeared from normal view and made my face appear to have collapsed. New dentures have now given me a full and proper shaped face. They fit very well and a great deal of care was taken during appointments to ensure a good and comfortable fit. The end result is far better than I expected.
Dear Alison, thank you for everything you’ve done for me. I’m delighted with the result and can hardly believe how you achieved it! Please say thanks to the girls for me.
I just want to say a big thank you to you and your staff. You explained every step of the process without any pressure. I am really pleased with the end result. I would highly recommend your practice.
I have been a patient at Meopham Dental Care for about 4 years. I am 64 years old and when I went to Alison my teeth were full of ancient fillings and I had assorted bridges and caps, in a range of colours. Over time Alison has worked to a programme that has progressively made a very significant change to my appearance. I have had 6 implants too, so unsightly gaps have gone. On one occasion I had a very painful gum infection and when I rang for an appointment I was seen the same day out of the normal practice hours. The treatment I have received has been totally professional and of the highest standard.
Excellent care from a professional team – well worth a 15 mile drive. Alison's starting point was a mouth full of old amalgam fillings. The look and feel of my teeth has been improved in a way I didn’t think was possible. And no further trouble!
I feel it is appropriate to write to you personally in appreciation of your gentle and compassionate manner in dealing with my rather sensitive dental needs especially with regard to the recent treatment, that of dental implants. When you first suggested the idea it was frightening but in fact it was not such an ordeal after all. I was impressed with your skill and precision in doing the work, which has proved very successful. Very many thanks and may you long continue to be my dental practitioner.
Alison 'saved' a tooth that I had been told would have to be extracted. Since then she and her team have provided wonderful care and helped me get over my phobia about dentists.
Six weeks before my daughter’s wedding, I decided I needed repair work on my smile. That was no problem for Meopham Dental Care. I went on to have more corrective work. At all times everything was fully explained and alternatives offered. I have nothing but praise for the staff and the way that the treatment is as painless as possible!
Dear Alison and your staff, I would like to thank you for all the care and attention that you have given me during my treatment over the past few years. I was quite wary of 'Implants' and its connotations, but after having three without any problems whatsoever, I would not hesitate to recommend the procedure. I am 69 years old, and the thought of dentures with impending years appalled me. If you have any patients that would like to hear from the 'horse’s mouth' how painless and easy the procedure is, I would be happy to talk to them. Well done all of you and many thanks.
This is the best dentist I have ever been to. Alison has given me back confidence and trust in it. I was scared to death, shaking, being sick and crying, but bit by bit I have got better. I now come to the dentist, although still nervous nothing like I was. I have even had a tooth out without being put to sleep. All the team are really good and dentists are no longer my worst nightmare.
"Before registering at Meopham Dental Care I hadn't had my teeth looked at in over 10 years, I was petrified of going to the dentists and always found an excuse to cancel appointments. My teeth and gum's were in a really bad way so I decided to go private in an attempt to get them sorted. From my first appointment Alison made me feel very safe and secure, taking the time to explain everything she was doing, which was half of my problem of feeling anxious because I wasn't in control. The money is well worth the personal treatment you receive. Having been extremely unhappy with my teeth since I was a teenager, I never smiled in pictures and always had my mouth firmly closed. With Alison I made massive steps to starting to sort out my teeth, growing in confidence with treatment Alison suggested I speak to an Orthodontist called John Costello, I never imagined I would be able to see through having a brace put on but my partner had just proposed and the thought of seeing my hideous teeth in my wedding photo's gave me the courage to go and see him and get a brace fitted. Now two years after my brace has been removed, I cannot begin to explain the difference its made to my life, not only to my confidence but also to my general teeth & gum health, I now smile constantly and never feel self conscious about the way I look. I still get nervous when I see I have a dentist appointment in my calendar, but now I always attend them!"
I am writing to thank you and your excellent staff for the very professional yet friendly care and attention you demonstrated during my recall course of treatment. As a nervous patient you managed to put me at ease straight away and made me feel total comfortable.
As well as appreciating your high standards of professional care may I also say you have a fantastic team working on your behalf. I can thoroughly recommend tour practice to anyone who may be interested especially ‘nervous’ patients like me.
I am now extremely comfortable with visiting the dentist again thanks to you and your team
Fab-tab-u-lo-sa. Re: Alison’s expertise, professionalism, customer care and compassion !
KUDOS to her professional staff too!!
4 months ago I had a lot of problems left and right side which needed attention as eating became difficult. Alison provided excellent upper and lower bridges on the right side enabling me to eat normally again. A crumbly tooth was removed and fillings improved. Overall 100% satisfactory course of treatment.
Now I can smile again!
Thank you so much for my beautiful front tooth. Paul matched the colour and size to perfection with no horrid black line at the top. A fantastic job. Thank you all.
Alison has restored a smile that I had lost over 20 years ago. It has been over 2 years now when I first came to this friendly dentist and she made me feel so at ease that I finally conquered ‘the dreaded dentist visit’. Thank you for recovering my smile.
Alison has looked after me well. She is always welcoming and friendly. The treatment is very through and skilled. All the personnel in reception are helpful and considerate. As a person who has a dread of dentists, I have been made welcome and put at ease.
Just a note to thank you for my treatment.
My new teeth are beautiful. I have even managed to clean them several times!
After having extensive work done, including implants, I would definitely recommend the practice to anyone who would love to have a great smile. They were so helpful with all my treatment and not a bit demanding on what I had done.
I am so pleased to have found Meopham Dental Care and to have Alison as my dentist and Sarah as my Hygienist.
The first thing I noticed, when going to Meopham Dental Care, 5 years ago, is that it doesn’t have the smell of a dental surgery. That helped me to relax a bit straight away.
Alison and Sarah are so understanding, they help me with my gagging and Alison makes sure the treatment is pain free. Alison explains everything and talks through the treatment as to what she is doing next, so there are no surprises. All the dental nurses are kind and understanding too.
My niece and a friend now come here and we all find the care, understanding and treatment we receive is excellent.
Lots of people, like me, don’t like going to the dentist, but now I no longer have a fear of going.
Hi Alison and team,
I meant to write a testimonial before and would like to do so here for your website or newsletter.
"Meopham Dental Care has really helped take care of me over the years. It could have been a life changing event had not Alison noticed I had developed an early form of mouth cancer on my palette, and this only during the interim period of a 6 monthly check up. I was quickly and efficiently referred onwards to the best in the business and have now made a full recovery thanks to the early discovery and treatment. I have had excellent follow up care to keep an eye on any recurrence. I have to thank the whole team for taking me through this difficult and painful experience to a happy conclusion".
Good luck with the practice, I think it is one of the best out there. I will have to find another to replace which may be hard - or commute 60miles.
