I felt so cared for and safeChristine, Greece, 03 08 21

Been going to UK NHS and Private sector dentists for over 50 years, and have never before experienced the care Dr Kouroklidis provides. I left after having planning and teeth cleaning deep clean, feeling great, no pain, not even a nudge, he is so gentle and attentive. Asking many times was I ok? Did I need a break, was there any pain? Unbelievable caring and delicate approach. As I walked back home, I thought to myself I have been laying in the cradle of Kouroklidis. I felt so cared for and safe. Astonishingly good experience, back today for my check-up. The actual price was €460 incl. X-Ray and first check-up appointment. Plus €25 for a panoramic 3D scan at a clinic in the centre. €485 in total.
