Handwritten Testimonials

I became Dr Patel’s patient after transferring from a private dentist to the NHS. I was nervous about having a new dentist after many years. I needn’t have worried, Viraj immediately put me at ease with his friendly, welcoming manner. After my first treatment I had complete confidence in him, he always explained everything he is doing and constantly checks that I am comfortable.

Last year we started talking about the option of me having implants. This in my humble opinion is when Viraj excelled. He was so patient and went through every step with me many times until I felt that I was ready to proceed. Throughout the procedure he was amazing, guiding me through every step, reassuring me and as always checking with me that I was comfortable. I am extremely pleased with the results and would not hesitate to recommend him to anyone.

In my personal opinion I think this young dentist with his warm, friendly manner and his high standards of dentistry has an amazing future ahead of him.

Handwritten Testimonial

I feel I have to express my gratitude and thanks for the high standard of dental care Dr Dhroov Thanki has given to my 87 year old mother, who has substantial and difficult dental issues. His professional and holistic approach, for a young man at the dawn of his career, is exemplary and goes far beyond what a patient expects. it is fair to say as a layman the standard of care I personally have received at Wigston House Dental Practice has always been excellent which highlights the generous, considerate manner that Dhroov has not only for his patient but also for his dental nurse colleague Jo. They work as a wonderful team.

Thank you Dhroov.

Excellent Service

Visited my dentist last week and I have nothing but praise for the dentist and his lovely nurse. They both were so friendly making me feel at ease the whole time. I have always been apprehensive of the dentist but they both made me feel comfortable and I will not be frightened to go back to see them in 6 months. Would certainly recommend this practice as everyone seems nice.
