After years of playing football and rugby as a youth into my early twenties, my teeth took some knocks. Admittedly, I didn’t look after them as well as I could have either. Over the last ten years I began to lose more of my upper teeth and eventually I had 2 left. I did get some dentures, which I never found comfortable but over the years the loss of teeth had a profound effect on my confidence and even simply what I could eat. I had to investigate implants. Was I nervous, yes! I need not have been. The team at Coppertop Dental Surgery, Dr Pretam Gharat and his team (the specialist) were all great throughout the whole process. I won’t lie, the procedure isn’t comfortable, more so for the next week or so. You have had surgery on your mouth after all, but it does heel, the pain goes away and it’s simply a game changer for me. I have been able to eat apples and nuts for the first time in 20 years without worrying about breaking a tooth. The personal confidence is just as significant. To be able to smile again without thinking about it! It’s expensive, but worth every penny in my opinion. I cannot recommend doing this enough if you can, the whole team are there with you throughout. I will get the bottom teeth done next!

Pretam/Santoshi – keep up the great work.

I had an implant a year ago and was lucky enough to find Pretam and Santoshi who work with my dental practice. From my first appointment I felt very comfortable, the whole process was explained in great detail and all of my questions were answered. I would highly recommend Pretam and wouldn’t hesitate to see him again if needed.

I had a really good experience of having my first implant with Dr Pretam Gharat. He was very welcoming, clearly explained what the process would be to remove a completely broken tooth and replace it with a new implant. He was accurate with the timeframe needed and all the work was done in my dental practice, making it extremely convenient. Even when there was a slight issue with the final fit of the new tooth, he resolved this without any fuss and with a quick response. Overall, I am very happy with the result and the service, I will be considering a second implant next year to give me a full set of teeth again as well.

I have been a patient at Coppertop Surgery in Camberley for many years and have always found the staff to be friendly,polite and helpful. If I have concerns over treatment and costs I know I can discuss it with Miss Purdom my dentist or the receptionist. The practice always appears calm and friendly and the whole family are treated professionally and courteously at all times.

What I like about Coppertop is its cleanliness, friendliness, always efficient and professional

I see Miss Purdom and I have always been delighted with the service and help my family have received from the practice, the staff are all friendly and helpful the practice is close to where I live. Miss Purdom is an excellent competent dentist in whom I have every confidence.
