February 2014

Dear Kris,

I write to thank you most sincerely for the care and attention which you afforded to me over the last couple of weeks. I am sure that you will see your attention as quite normal but I would like to assure you that myself and my wife feel that your care and attention in this day and age was absolutely exemplary; I doubt very much that there is another practise anywhere that would have gone to the extraordinary lenghts which you and your team did to relieve my trauma.

You turned out, twice, on a weekend to relieve my agony, even bringing along Kelly and you called in Wendy your receptionist as a baby sitter! Please include my thanks to them as well. I know that I must have mucked up three people's weekend for which I apologise.

Perhaps I should also let you know that, in my opinion, your standard of treatment matches your very, very high standards of care and attention.

Thank you very much

Dear Dr Leeson

I just wanted to express my appreciation of the excellent care I have received from you and your team over the last 2 years since I joined the practice. I came to the practice in an emergency from an NHS dentist and since then I have come to appreciate what a high standard of care you give. I used to suffer from halitosis despite regular six monthly checks with my NHS dentist where I never received any dental hygiene advice or help. Since joining your practice and receiving excellent advice, hygienist care and encouragement I no longer have the problem. It is such a relief!

I also just had a badly fitting gold inlay replaced with CEREC. The procedure was completed in one appointment, was pain free and the results are fantastic. It looks like a normal tooth now and is very comfortable. I am amazed at the new innovations in dental practice and feel very lucky that these are available in your practice. Thank you very much.

Dear Kris, My admiration for you is 100%!!. To see me so quickly and fit me in during the evening even though I was not a regular patient- I just feel so lucky. As I look at my tooth this morning I cant believe what you achieved yesterday. It is fantastic.

Thank you so much for the new crowns fitted in July. It was a fantastic experience, & to have them fitted in less than two hours, and to watch the amazing technology of manufacturing them!

I contacted Gwyneth at the Bishopthorpe dental practice, because I have always been embarrassed about my crooked smile. The whole team were fantastic throughout the entire process, and the environment is relaxed, modern and immaculate. The team know how to put people at ease, and Gwyneth was extremely professional and helpful, explaining each step of the treatment plan with me in full, and making sure I understood what each step entailed. The end result? I now have a smile that I feel proud to show off, and I'm really happy with how it looks. The treatment was completely painless, and the team were really happy to accommodate me at any time if I had any issues or concerns. I cant recommend the team, Gwyneth's expertise, or the professionalism of the practice more highly. Thank you so much for transforming my smile! Thank you, seriously, for the gift you have given me. I'm going to miss you guys, you have been amazing. If all dentists were like you, there would be no more phobias!

Thanks for these, what a difference! Very pleased with the result. Better than expected. I'll now be giving lots of extra cheesy smiles for the wedding photos.

I had thought about having some facial fillers for some time but was sceptical about using anyone without some sort of medical or science background. Therefore when I realised that my dentist offered professional treatment I decided to book an appointment. My treatment was to fill quite a pronounced indent in my forehead, a frown line and having never had any kind of botox or fillers before I was a little nervous but the procedure was explained very clearly to me in my first consultation which included telling me how the procedure would feel and what realistic results could be expected. After the initial consultation I agreed to go ahead. The procedure was carried out under local anesthetic and although was a little uncomfortable it was relatively pain free. Results were noticeable from the beginning, I am very pleased with the results so much so that I will be having some more treatment in the future

A massive thank you for the excellent service that I received from all the staff at Woodthorpe! Lovely warm welcome from the lady on reception and the dental nurses, and the treatment I received from Krs was exceptional. My smile is now much improved thank to you all, Kris especially, and was definitely worth the couple of long drives/getting lost etc! I'd be grateful if you could pass this on to Kris and the ladies. Thanks

October 2012

Following recommendation from a work colleague a little over a year ago, I contacted Woodthorpe Dental Practice enquiring about the possibility of having a dental implant. This had become one of the options available to me as the post and crown I had fitted more than forty years ago had become unstable. From the moment I arrived at the practice and was greeted by Jane Morris the receptionist, I was made to feel very welcome and put at ease at the outset. Dr Devall guided me through the necessary stages of my treatment and I had every confidence that the implant was the way forward not wanting to go down the route of having a denture. I work "front of house" and my smile is important to me. Due to significant bone loss in my case it was necessary to have grafting done which I must say the thought of filled me with dread but I needn't have worried, the procedure was carried out painlessly, professionally and above all, with the strictest of hygiene measures followed, I was guided every step of the way with what was being done and why at time of treatment. The care and courtesy extended to me by Dr Devall, Jane and the dental nurses has been second-to-none and I cannot thank them enough for their kindness. The expertise of Dr Barbie Devall is now evident in my smile and I am more than happy to recommend anyone who is thinking of a dental implant, or any other dental work for that matter, to the care of Woodthorpe Dental Practice. Thank you for giving me the confidence to smile again!

Just to say thank you for the treatment I received at Woodthorpe Dental Centre on February 14th. Having telephoned earlier in the day, with severe toothache, I was kindly dealt with by you receptionist and given an appointment with Alex (Liz being on a well deserved holiday). After my recent experience of emergency dental treatment (at another practice) it was with some trepidation that I arrived at the surgery. Thank you Alex for your calm and gentle approach, and the support from your dental nurse. It was a long hour plus in the chair, but everything was explained stage by stage, and my comfort seemed paramount, for which I am extremely grateful! I was surprised to receive a call this afternoon (15th Feb) from your receptionist (I will find out her name next time) to make sure that the procedure had been effective and that I wouldn't need a follow up appointment on Thursday. I'm please to say so far so good.... I'm not looking forward to the root canal work, but at least I feel confident about the treatment I will receive. Many thanks to you all

The reasons that I am contacting you today are twofold. Firstly, I have for the past few weeks been having dental procedures at your Copmanthorpe surgery by Dr Alex Coleman. Being aged 62 and being someone who since my teens has been trying to look after my teeth, meaning that I have known a number of dentists, I can say without fear of contradiction that Dr Coleman is the finest dentist that I have ever visited and along with her nurse Emily and Jackie in reception, you have a formidable team.

To Karen and Thorpe Dental,

We just wanted to say a huge thank you for all your support and the generous donation of an electric toothbrush as a raffle prize for our recent fundraising day held in memory of Philip Curtis. The event was a huge success with our lovely community coming together and I'm delighted to inform you the day raised just over £1600. We will now be able to fund the purchase of a defibrillator for A.Y.J.S as well as further support the music room fund at the school. This has only been possible with the generosity of so many kind hearted people and local businesses-like yourselves. With many thanks.

Following an accident in early childhood my front two teeth were in a pretty bad state. Over the years I had gold inlays to support them, brace work to straighten them and a range of other treatments too boring to mention!

Some six years ago, following careful discussion with Andy, he propsed building a cantilever bridge to give me two normal sized front teeth.

I play the trumpet and so this was quite important for me. I have to say that the result of the treatment has surpassed my expectation. I am playing more since I retired and really enjoyed playing with some confidence. I'll never become an Alison Balsom or Wynton Marsalis but I have been really impresses with the work undertake.
