Treatment Received: Dental Crowns, Dental Implants
I was introduced to Dr Karimi by a friend of mine when I told her about my front crown falling out. She immediately said there is only one place for you to go for your treatment and that is Dr Karimi, NDS. I was extremely apprehensive as the loss of my front crown - although temporarily replaced - was a tremendous shock and my confidence received a big knock as I dare not smile, go out to Restaurants, etc., or even socialise! Within moments of meeting Dr Karimi and his Team I felt totally reassured and ready to face the procedure of having an implant. Having had the implant done I also had the tooth next to it crowned and now I am happily smiling again. My two front teeth look so good, I wish I had done something about it many years ago instead of waiting for the inevitable crown to fall out! The costs were explained in advance and I believe the prices charged were extremely fair.

I cannot speak highly enough about all the treatment I received at Norfolk Dental Specialists. The professionalism, the care and thoughtfulness is second to none. I also was most impressed by the way Dr Karimi was always explaining to his Dental Nurses the various procedures thus constantly adding to their knowledge and skills too. I must also thank the lovely Nurses for always being prepared to hold my hand if I got scared by the noise of extractions etc. As and when I need more treatment there is only one practice I would feel totally confident of going to - Norfolk Dental Specialists - Thank you all so very very much and I wish you a very happy 2017.

"I have had an extremely positive experience at all stages"

Treatment Received: Hygienist Session
I was recommended to go to Norfolk Dental Specialists by my dentist, for hygienist treatment for gum problems. The treatments have been on-going and have improved my oral health hugely. I have only ever had the length of appointment that was strictly necessary for the treatments I have needed, and have found it very good value for money.
I have had an extremely positive experience at all stages during my treatment. The hygienist is thoughtful, communicative and informative, and despite being a rather nervous patient, I have always been put at my ease. The practice is very organized and all of the staff are helpful, positive and courteous.

"I cannot recommend the practice too highly"
100%Reviewed 11 Dec 2016 Review verified by email.
Treatment Received: Dental Implants
I had 6 implants because I had a denture but found it difficult to speak clearly and eating wasn't easy.
I would definitely recommend this solution, which, though expensive has given me the ability to speak, eat and smile again!

On my first visit, I was impressed by Hamed 's approach and his explanation of the procedure. When it took place, the professionalism and team work were extremely impressive. Pain was "not allowed" and Hamed and his nurses attended to every small detail of physical comfort,including keeping my lips moisturised all the time. there was plenty of re-assurance and real kindness.
Altogether, I cannot recommend the practice too highly, a charming , very helpful receptionist, excellent nurses and brilliant surgeon?

"I am delighted with the outcome"
100%Reviewed 20 Nov 2016 Review verified by email.
Treatment Received: Dental Implants
I had four implants as I had gaps both sides of my mouth which made chewing quite difficult and restricted what I could eat, The treatment was carried out over a number of weeks and I was made to feel very comfortable and pain free at all times. The new teeth soon felt normal and I am hardly aware of them now. I would certainly recommend implants. It is a fairly expensive treatment but for me a good investment.
My Dentist recommended Norfolk Dental Specialists. The clinic has a very welcoming atmosphere and all the staff are very professional and caring. My treatment options were fully explained and everything went to plan. I am delighted with the outcome.

"Dr Imran Sharif is undoubtedly a very talented dental surgeon and I would recommend him most highly"
100%Reviewed 30 Oct 2016 Review verified by phone and email.
Treatment Received: Extractions, Dental Implants
Four years ago I had an abscess under one of back teeth and it was found that the tooth was broken as well so nothing could be done to save it. NDS was recommended to me and Dr Imran Sharif recommended extraction of the tooth and an implant. When the tooth was removed, Dr Sharif enabled my blocked sinus to drain and once everything had healed inserted my new implant with and extra piece of bone. The implant works exactly as one of your own teeth and you don't know it's there which means you can enjoy your food again!

The NDS clinic is an excellent surgery. You are looked after by a very caring team who will help you if you're nervous (as I was) and smooth your way through the procedure. I feel that having the implant was one of the best things I have ever done for myself and it has enabled me to eat comfortably and to enjoy food once again. Dr Imran Sharif is undoubtedly a very talented dental surgeon and I would recommend him most highly.

"Everyone went out of their way to be kind to me and I recommend them unreservedly"
100%Reviewed 19 Oct 2016 Review verified by phone and email.
Treatment Received: Dental Implants
I am terrified of dentists and when a highly visible tooth broke to the point that it was not an option to save it I was mortified to realise that an implant was the only way forward. I decided that as I was having one done I would bit the bullet and get a second one done that was also in my smile line.

The work was carried out over a number of months - it was not fun but the gentle understanding of everyone involved made this a far easier journey than I could have believed possible. It a tad uncomfortable at times but completely painless.

The result has been outstanding - a year down the line I have trouble remembering which of my teeth are the implants - they have settled very well.
I would and have recommended Norfolk Dental Specialists to my friends as my experience was exemplary and the services that I received - fantastic!

I chose this clinic as it was recommended to me by another friend who had had an implant done a couple of years before
On arriving I was welcomed by Paula who recognised my utter terror and was very sympathetic and kind. This sympathy was echoed by Nami, my dentist and his lovely team.
Everyone went out of their way to be kind to me and I recommend them unreservedly.

Dear Wendy, we are so glad to have been able to help you to not only overcome your fear, but that you are now the proud owner of a restored, natural looking smile! It's also heartening for many people considering implants to read, that although possibly uncomfortable at times, you never experienced pain. We work hard to provide the very best in care and treatment and the team are always thrilled to hear how patients feel and what they honestly thought about their treatment and how happy they are with the result. Warm regards, the NDS team.

"I am totally thrilled at the results so far"
100%Reviewed 16 Oct 2016 Review verified by phone and email.
Treatment Received: Periodontitis Treatment
A year ago I stopped smoking,my gums turned soft and started bleeding and my teeth became loose! I didn't like their appearance and I was in pain and very worried. I had heard that Norfolk Dental Specialists were the best to go to so I made an appointment. I was diagnosed by Mr Hamed Karimi who informed me that I had advanced periodontal disease and bone support loss and that the future of my teeth was very uncertain. I proceeded with the suggested treatments and saw the hygienist Miss Natalie Berwick regularly. I'm not going to say that the treatment didn't hurt afterwards, but " no pain,no gain " for my situation. A year later and the disease is well under control and I have only lost two molars so far and I can now look forward to other options of cosmetic dentistry performed by Mr Karimi. I am totally thrilled at the results so far. I wouldn't hesitate in recommending this practice. Cost...well it was worth every penny...last year for my birthday dinner I was struggling with very soft food...this year I'm having rump steak! I think that speaks volumes! My sincere gratitude to NDS and I look forward to seeing you very soon.

I chose Norfolk Dental Specialists because I had heard that they were the best in the area. Totally dedicated specialists and that's what I needed. My first impression,warm,friendly and professional. I cannot fault this practice or its staff in any way and I look forward to a continued working relationship.

Single tooth implant. Impeccable treatment. It appears expensive but it was worth it to me for dental treatment I could trust.

A very pleasant reception and waiting area, with helpful and cheerful service. In the treatment room, Nami carefully explained the options and inspired confidence. The implant surgery was completely painless and not at all uncomfortable. Overall, the NDS clinic has wonderfully positive atmosphere. £2,400.

Hello Bruce, Many thanks for your kind review and for making the correlation between cost and having dental treatment you can trust-which is even more important for advanced procedures such as dental implants. Kind regards and all the very best.

Incredibly kind, caring and professional service throughout. Hugo is immensely talented and I wouldn't hesitate to recommend him to anyone.
