I am absolutely petrified of dentists.
So much so that it took a root canal which filling had fallen away, the tooth broken in half and developed a huge abscess on the gum before I could even call a dentist. I'm new to London so spent a couple of hours researching online and after reading the reviews for Chrysanth Dental Care, I called.
When I explained to the lovely Pearl on reception what my issue was, she had me booked in that same evening to see David the dentist.
Now, this dude is The Dude of dentists. He broke the news that I would need an extraction (obviously my first ever one), and provided a FedEx envelope for me to breathe into as I panic-attacked my way through that piece of news.
He prescribed sedation for me and after popping that, allowed me to relax in the room while it took effect. I was even given his shades to wear because I found the lights a little too bright for me.
The tooth which needed to be drilled into three pieces, was a bit of a 'tusk' as my partner exclaimed, but I didnt feel a thing. I felt so safe with David and his lovely assistant and the whole procedure was over in less than ten minutes.
Off I wobbled with my antibiotics into the hands of my partner (who needed to be present as I was sedated). A week later, my wound is healing well and have had follow up calls from both David and Pearl to make sure I'm all good.
I have found my dentist in London.
I could NOT recommend this clinic any higher. Especially David himself. His skills in dentistry are only topped by his cool nurturing nature and gift for handling weeping nervous wrecks like me.
If you are a nervous patient and need a dentist, book this guy and forget about all the stress, sit back and relax and you may even get to wear his shades.
