The aftercare is second to none and his attention to detail is first class

5 50 Dental Implants

Brilliant. Cannot recommend them enough. If you are thinking of implants Gulshan scores 10/10. The aftercare is second to none and his attention to detail is first class. He always puts the patient first, makes you feel at ease and provides the best dentistry and expertise that you find.

I have complete confidence in him and he's my dentist from now on

5 50 Dental Implants

My initial reason for choosing the Whippendale Dental Clinic for implant treatment was the huge number of 5-star reviews here on WhatClinic. My experience fully justified those reviews and now I add my own 5-star review to them.

Dr Gulshan Murgai has proved to be an absolute star! Not only is he highly experienced, knowledgeable and thoroughly professional, he's also a really nice guy. His staff too are excellent and very friendly. Each time I had an appointment it almost felt as though I was visiting friends!

Here are things that I particularly appreciated:
The preliminary conversations we had to help me decide what approach would be best in my particular case. Very helpful information, all questions answered and guidance is given without any pressure whatsoever. As a result, the conclusion and decision I arrived at proved to be the right one.

The successful procedures Dr Murgai undertook to provide me with a full set of implants and replacement teeth - that now look and feel great and work well. His obvious huge technical skill. The detailed explanations Dr Murgai gave me about everything that I asked - and I asked a lot because I'm into detail and knowing 'whys' and 'hows'.

The exceptional care he took to get everything right - not just 'good enough' but the best possible outcome. If something needed adjusting he took the time and trouble to do that each time it arose.
The state-of-the-art equipment and facilities in which Dr Murgai has invested to enable him to deliver the highest quality dental surgery. The fact that Dr Murgai has his own dental lab and skilled technicians on site so that everything is under his control and done to his high standards.

So was the experience entirely pain-free? You wouldn't expect it to be in my case, with extensive surgery involved, but Dr Murgai did his best to effectively minimise the discomfort. No complaints but I really don't like injections! Still, Dr Murgai's skill meant that I really couldn't feel a whole lot while he was working on me.

So would I recommend Dr Murgai and his clinic? Absolutely! I have complete confidence in him and he's my dentist from now on.

I am confident

5 50 Dentist Consultation

I went for a dentist consultation at this clinic and the whole thing was amazing and I'll be having the procedure within just a few months but that they will do an amazing job.

The clinic was very neat and hygienic, The doctor was very good and treated me with great respect. They told me what would happen and how the procedure will go and the recovery too. They are reasonable with pricing, they charge exactly as they quoted no surprises at all.

Treated by: Dr Gulshan Murgai

Dear Nadia, Firstly thank you for choosing us to help you improve your oral health. Secondly thank you for taking the time to write a review and for your very kind words. We look forward to seeing you again.

Perfect results

5 50 Teeth Whitening • Paid: £300

I can't recommend this practice enough

4.9 50 Dental Implants, Dental Crowns • Paid: £1500

Previously 2 implants and today 2 crowns

I had two very painless implants 3 years ago. Today I had two temporary crowns put in. Dr Murgai was as always kind and explained everything. I have had a lot of dental work over the years and I am nervous of visiting the dentist. I can't recommend this practice enough. Don't go abroad for implants, you won't save money in the long run. Pay the money. It's local, clean and I have always had a good experience.

5 50 Dental Implants • Paid: £8

Full implants

After visiting so many clinics for consultations for full implants, including the possibility of flying to Budapest to have all the work done (which they wanted cash), don't advise this! Visiting 2 Harley St clinics, Whippendell Dental Clinic was local and by far the most honest and realistic advise I had had! Dr Murgai was very reassuring and accommodating , I had work over 6 months every evening after my treatment I had a call to check how I was, the sessions were not rushed and overall am very happy , now my wife has decided to have some implants done as she saw how well the whole treatment went, thanks I will highly recommend the clinic for any dental procedures.

Reassuring and positive

4.8 50 Fillings • Paid: £1700

Having had bad experiences in the past with dentists, I decided to attend this clinic based on the reviews I had read. Still feeling negative about dentists, I attended my initial consultation. The dentist was very reassuring and positive which was a good sign for me as every other dentist I had seen would make me feel like I had the worst teeth in the history of teeth!!
The treatment went well and the Dentist kept me informed of the treatment every step of the way. Another good point also is they did not make me feel like a pest when I would phone them if I had a problem, a question or needed reassurance. The staff are great and made me feel very welcome and I felt like an individual, not just an entry in the appointment diary. I have finally found a dentist I can trust and feel comfortable with!
