DentalcarePlus Dental Implant Centres Patient Testimonials
Prior to treatment: Because of decay, poor care and minimum preventive dentistry in earlier years, I had already lost quite a large number of teeth.
A decision with my dentist pointed to the option of plates of false teeth upper and lower. An upper was constructed but I never liked the idea of lower plate and continued with what was provided. An upper plate with no 'matching' and very few lower teeth to bite against was the worst of both worlds. Further extractions made the matter quite serious, and over the course of a few years, became almost impossible. The ever increasing use of dental fixatives made talking and eating very difficult. My dentist recommended two dental implant centres, where I went for further advice. The centre she recommended was in Marlow, now Dental Care Plus.
Examinations, a plan of procedure, costing and timing set me on a course of hi-tech dentistry that I scarcely knew existed; all procedures carefully explained, computer visual presentations, and every effort to reassure given. It was a trippy experience indeed. I costed the whole (very extensive) procedure on a scale of total cost divided by the number of weeks likely to live in remaining life. The weekly cost was well worth the eventual payment.
When the time came, it was all I could have hoped for. True, there was some discomfort as the work was major - from almost no teeth to a full set of matched upper and lower, firmly fixed, and for the first time for years, I could actually bite using opposing artificial teeth.
No more dental fixative; no more worrying that my conversations with friends would be punctuated with embarrassing loose dentures; no more diets that consisted of soup, yoghurts, and mushy weetabix.
I would happily recommend this Dental Care Plus to those interested in ending dental uncertainty, and replacing it with absolute confidence to talk, eat normally, and enjoy life once more.

I cannot praise the DentalCarePlus Implant Centre too highly. Throughout my entire treatment plan, I received professional quality care, delivered with empathy & consideration. Every effort was made to make me feel comfortable, confident & secure. I was quite sorry when my treatment was completed, as I always enjoyed my visits!
I recommend the DentalCarePlus Implant Centre whenever I get the opportunity.
Thank you ALL.

I am absolutely thrilled with the results from my dental implants and I have had eleven of them. I did do extensive research before I settled on Dentalcare Plus, and without doubt, I made the absolute right choice.
Before making a decision on a clinic, I had weighed up the pros and cons of each establishment; taking into account my own personal impression of the clinic and dental surgeon. I did have one other consultation at a different clinic, but, unlike the service offered at Dentalcare Plus, I was told my dental scans would not be insitu, but at other locations that I would need to travel to each time; plus the quotes were substantially more for less treatment it appeared. Also, other clinics appeared to have a less professional approach and harangued me for a commitment to their plan, which I considered decidedly unprofessional and did not inspire me with any confidence to proceed with them.
Dentalcare Plus were extremely open and frank about treatment and costs from the outset. Prices were reasonable, and you can pay as you go. Plus, scanners were on the premises, and the clinic was exactly what I was looking for location wise.
At my initial consultation, my mouth was scanned for an accurate assessment of what was needed for the best outcome, and also to determine the costs involved. Carlos, was my dental surgeon, and I cannot recommend his expertise and artistry enough. He completely put me at my ease at each visit and his approach was both professional and caring. He talked my through each process and explained each detail to me while looking at the xrays. I felt immediately relaxed and very confident in his ability throughout. It was a longer process than I had immediately accounted for, because I required extensive bone grafting. At each stage, everything was very closely monitored and assessed, and nothing was hurried to get the very best results. Some stages, particularly the sinus lift I needed, were traumatic and did leave me with extensive facial bruising, but this is obviously different for all patients. Strangely, I did not experience much pain, just swelling perhaps for a day or two.
Now all my treatment is over, apart from check-ups. The results are more than I hoped for. My smile is back to how it used to be and my confidence is regained, I feel fantastic! My teeth look so natural, you would never know I have had anything done; the colour match is perfect!
One thing remains to be done, and that is to thank my talented dental surgeon Carlos and the wonderful team that work alongside him. I was treated with such consideration and care throughout by all the staff, and I cannot recommend this dental practice highly enough.

I like steaks but before my treatment I had to be very selective in the types I could eat - and I was always the last to finish whatever I ate. Things were only going to get worse.
I had five implants.
The treatment was excellent and though the experience was not particularly pleasant, it was not too bad - not painful, and afterwards just short periods of jaw ache and careful eating at times. It is quite a long drawn out process.
The team were friendly, understanding and helpful. Everything was explained very fully and there were no surprises.
The results are great - well worth the money - and the process is thoroughly recommended. I am delighted with the results and would definitely go for it again if I had my life again.
PS After this, I expect sugar in my coffee when I come for my check up!

In 1942 in occupied Belgium, I had surgery to tonsils and adenoids. An accident in theatre destroyed the enamel on my upper incisors. Ever since, I went from dentist to dentist, having caps, then extractions, then partial dentures, damaged teeth by clasps, precision attachments, root treatments, crowns, all leading to loss of teeth, eating problems and fear of losing my partial denture until, at the end of my tether, I went looking for an implant practice.
DentalCarePlus struck me at once by their professionalism. Helpful receptionists eased me into the surgery where I was advised by Dr Ribo that bone loss prevented fixed implanted teeth as a possibility but an over-denture would be feasible.
Surgery is never fun. The removal of my remaining upper teeth however was handled painlessly. A temporary full upper denture was waiting for me to tide me over.
Implantation surgery was somewhat traumatic due to extensive bruising but proper care was always available. Uncovering the implants was a similar experience.
Once all that was over, the over-denture was fitted and with minor adjustments was very comfortable. My new teeth look good and they feel good. I can eat what I like; I can smile, grin and grimace again. I am happy.

Over a period of twelve months, Juan treated me; I had 2 missing molars, 3 molars with nothing above the gum and one septic molar. Understandably, I could not masticate food properly and, despite being 76 years of age, decided to to something about it. I should have taken action 10 years ago.
Juan extracted 3 teeth and has provided 6 implants. The whole procedure was conducted in an extremely proficient, painless and professional manner. Local anaesthetic was used throughout and, apart from 1 or 2 occasions (well worth bearing so as to avoid a general), painlessly applied.
I am now enjoying the results of Juan's excellent work and would not know that some of my teeth are "artificial ". Eating is now straightforward and, cosmetically, I can smile without any unsightly gaps.
I found all the support staff extremely helpful and welcoming.
Overall, if anybody reading this is considering implants, this practice should be top of their list.

I am very pleased with my dental implants from DentalCarePlus Marlow. The benefits have justified the expense.
The team at Marlow were always friendly and professional.
I found DentalCarePlus on the internet, not by any personal recommendation. My decision to go there was simply based on the old adage that, as a rule, "it pays to patronise those who specialise". And it did.

Due to my long established fear of dentistry, I put off having my tooth trouble fixed for over two years. Gradually, the pain in the tooth was so bad, it was effecting my enjoyment of food and my day to day life. My dentist told me the only way to alleviate the pain was to have the tooth removed and an implant fitted. Eventually, I decided to go ahead, however the quote I received was astronomical. A friend recommended DentalCarePlus and I called them for a quote which was half what my dentist had quoted. I decided to have a consultation to see how I felt about Dr Moynes, I was nervous about seeing a new dentist and I wasn't sure I'd be able to go ahead with such invasive dentistry, but Dr Moynes immediately made me feel relaxed and confident that he would be able to help me with the minimum of pain. I did find the procedure daunting and quite stressful, but Dr Moynes was reassuring and understanding and helped me through my fear. The implant was a lot less painful that I had expected and I am thrilled with it now that it is done. I would happily recommend DentalCarePlus, especially to anyone who has a fear of dentistry.

I just want to say thank you again. For years I thought that I would just have to accept the loss of my canine tooth because wearing a partial wasn't a option. I was always a bit self conscientious about my smile but thought that implants were just too expensive. My treatment was well presented and explained in writing and the procedure painless really all in done in a very comfortable setting. The payments were spread out over the stages of my treatment which made easy to budget for. I felt the staff as well went the extra mile to make sure that experience was professional from start to finish. I am glad that I had the procedure done I believe it has given me a extra bit of confidence and will enrich my life after all first impressions do count. Just want to say thank you again and yes I would recommend my friends to Dentalcare Plus.

My name is Simon and I have recently received dental implants at DentalCarePlus.
Prior to the dental implants, I had a lot of problems eating as most of my molars were missing, and chewing my food with my incisors progressively damaged them over a 20-25 year period. You can imagine how pleased I was to have the opportunity to get dental implants.
From the first day to the last, I was treated by Dr. Moynes and his staff in a very professional manner, with warmth and caring which put me at ease throughout the extensive work that needed to be done. I was also very surprised that the process was relatively painless, considering what had to be done, as Dr. Moynes had told me it would be. There was a little discomfort, but that's it.
As for the results, after so many years with so many teeth missing, it feels so good to have my teeth back, being able to chew on both sides of my mouth and chew my food properly and not at the front with my incisors. The implants feel like my teeth, and they do look good.

DentalCarePlus has given me a first class treatment; providing a quick assessment, clear itinerary and instructions. My dental implants feel and look so natural. I have had these for four months now and I still feel 100% satisfied.

Having had my upper left front tooth extracted which resulted in the use of an uncomfortable plate for three months,I decided to investigate an implant. I viewed several web sites varying in detail and price structures.
DentalCarePlus, although not the cheapest and certainly not the dearest, appeared clear on the service offered and the costs involved subject of course to the medical requirements of the particular procedure found necessary.
I contacted DentalCare and received a prompt reply with details of my appointment at Marlow with Gary Moynes.
Dr. Moynes examined my mouth, took a CT Scan and within a few moments discussed the possibilities of an implant.We then agreed details of his clinical assessment and scheduled the procedure and costs.
My initial appointment was in September and I explained that I had planned a long trip abroad starting in mid January. Dr. Moynes was excellent in his planning for my next three appointments at Wimpole Street 1)Implant/abutment placement, 2) Impressions and tooth shade matching ,followed by 3) the final fitting of the new crown.The procedure was completed early in December well in time for my planned trip.
The friendliness and excellent service shown to me by Dr.Moynes and his staff could not have made me feel more at ease and I am grateful for their skills.
The new tooth has been comfortable and I feel no different to having a natural tooth in its place. Based on the treatment I received I would not hesitate recommending the skill of Dr.Gary Moynes and his colleagues at DentalCarePlus.
