“I have been a patient at Highfield Dental surgery for 38 years. Mr Salil Patel, the principal dentist, is extremely dedicated to helping his patients and providing workable solutions. I have no hesitation in recommending this brilliant dental practice to anyone and the years I have been using them is testament to this.”
‘I’m a very nervous emotional person when it comes to visiting the dentist, having been with my previous one for years, I decided to go to Highfield on the recommendation of my husband. When I made contact for my first appointment I explained to the receptionist my fears, she was so kind, helpful and understanding and recommended Pinal Patel who would be perfect for me. I went along for my first appointment very anxious but as soon as I walked in the receptionists were so friendly they soon put me at ease.
I have now gone back for my second appointment and I can’t thank Pinal Patel enough for being so patience with me and for making sure that throughout my procedure I was ok and not in any pain. He is so kind, understanding, gentle, considerate and very professional.
I would definitely recommend Highfield Dental Practice to all.’
”Dr Uzma Patel,
After going through jaw surgery and having braces I still wanted a few changes to my two teeth that were shorter then others.
Uzma has done an incredible job and I would highly recommend anyone who is wanting Composite Bonding. We went over all the small changes to make it perfect for my individual smile.
Always checking how I was feeling and it really is pain free. I will definitely be going back if I need anything else done. Thank you again for all your time. ”
”Hi the teeth team, how refreshing to get a good quality service, the old saying goes you get what you pay for. All the staff are very polite and helpful especially Uzma Patel who was very understanding as I am a very nervous patient, she made me feel reassured and also did a good job, many thanks to you all.”
Thanks for a very careful and painstaking reconstruction this morning… you have achieved a perfect likeness to the original as far as my tongue is concerned, and it is perfectly profiled to fit with its mates on my upper jaw….I would never have suspected I had had dental work done today.
Looks good in the mirror, too!”
”Today I had my first appointment with Pinal Patel who is new to this surgery. My fears, which are many, were completely unfounded as he appreciated how I felt. This will make future visits less stressful. He is one kind, gentle and very professional dentist..”
”Having been a patient at highfield for more than a decade I can only say I wouldn’t go anywhere else, only today I attended an appointment with Martina who like all the staff was proficient & as always explained everything was to be done. 10/10”
Halloween is around the corner, what child doesn’t like to dress up and “trick or treat” all the neighbours, in their search for some sugary delights.
Children love getting lots of candy treats! But whilst this is a fun time of year, eating too many sweets is a horrifying thought for our teeth.
So our friendly team at Highfield want to give you some good tricks, on how to treat your teeth well this Halloween.
* Make sure you brush your teeth at least twice a day, morning and night.
* Have your sweet treats, along side a main meal, this limits the amount of sugar attacks on your teeth. Continually eating sweets throughout the day is a tooth’s worst nightmare!
*Avoid sticky sweets as these can get stuck in your teeth and stay there for longer, which gives the bacteria more time to harm your teeth.
(And that goes for Mum and Dad too… we know you like to feast on the children’s goodies too).
Have a fangtastic Halloween!!
Lost and Found.
During this pandemic I, like most people, have not been able to see my lovely dentist, Biruntha Vaheeswaran, but the time came when I could put it off no longer, so I was devastated to find out she had left the practise in Chatterton Road. I had been her patient for many years and, having previously had a bad experience with a ‘lucky dip’ search for a dentist, was unwilling to go the same route again. I should not have worried, having asked around I found her! She is now at Highfield Dental in Crofton Road. Orpington. It was such a relief – and added bonus, Claire, the receptionist, was also there! It is a very friendly surgery, super friendly receptionists – and a lovely garden to gaze out on while you wait your appointment, and, big bonus, easy to get to by bus. If you are looking for a dentist, look no further!
I just wanted to say how impressed I was with Martina Oboh. She was such a pleasant person and explained everything she was doing during my filling which is very reassuring as it was my first visit with her.
