My jaw operation has given me great confidence . After being very anxious about the idea of surgery, going ahead with it has been the best decision I’ve made.  I’m glad that my teeth are now in the best possible position, in order  to give me a lifetime of better dental health. Would like to say a big thank you to my consultant surgeon and the oral surgery team for their support and care.

Last February you kindly operated on a rodent ulcer on the side of my nose. You did brilliant work on my face. After eight months, the scar is hardly noticeable. I remember you saying that within six months it would look a lot better, as I was rather distressed! My very grateful thanks – I was so lucky to have you as my surgeon.

B.S., October 2015

I felt I had to write to you via email to thank you so much for your care and attention when having my recent operation to remove a rodent ulcer from my face. Your confidence lifted me as I was not looking forward to this procedure at all, but your manner and assurance was exemplary and made facing the task much easier. I can only praise you…for the treatment I received. My wife and I would once again thank you very much and wish you and your family the very best for the year ahead.
