Why come to Mark for treatment

My experience and knowledge. My passion to deliver the very best treatment at every step of the journey. My commitment to ensuring the very best outcome that I can, ensuring that every patient is listened to in terms of their own expectations from treatment.

Because I treat every patient as an individual caring for their needs and wishes and helping them to understand the options before we start. And because I communicate in a way that patients fully understand what is proposed and they are very involved in the decision making process.

Why do you work at Dental Excellence

Because we truly can make a huge difference influencing for the better a patients quality of life. We really can deliver “Life changing dentistry” What do I enjoy about working here? Beautiful surroundings. Wonderful location. Surrounded by a team of like-minded people with a passion for achieving the very best.

What case are you most proud of and why

I would have to say Patricia. Because she is such an extrovert outgoing person. She loves life. She wants to be busy socialising and meeting people. Wearing a denture stripped her of her dignity, made her someone she wasn’t. She felt miserable and trapped and incapacitated socially. She wouldn’t eat in public. Having implant treatment has given her a new lease of life; she will tell you all this herself. It is a truly heartwarming story about the power of modern dentistry.
