How a footballer patient at our Glasgow clinic benefits from dental implants after a nightmare tackle

Our team at the Glasgow clinic see people from all walks of life.

In this testimonial that we received the patient – a footballer told of the benefits from dental implants after a nightmare tackle.

This was a powerful testimonial from a sportsman who discovered the the preferred solution to his major problem was dental implant work.

The 39-year-old wrote two us when he completed his treatment as follows:

“I have been a professional footballer for 20 years and suffered a severe blow to the mouth after an accidental tackle, causing me to instantaneously loose my two front teeth.

“The incident occurred on a Saturday evening and being very anxious and in a lot of physical pain, I wanted to seek dental treatment immediately.

“Dr Friel was recommended to me by a friend and after speaking with him late on the Saturday evening, he made arrangements to see me first thing on the Sunday morning.

“PUT AT EASE”

“I was immediately impressed by his willingness to see me outwith practice hours. At this time, I was in a great deal of pain and very concerned about the outcome – I had always taken great care of my teeth and felt very anxious at the thought of possibly no longer having what I considered to be a nice smile.

“After this first meeting with Dr Friel, I was immediately put at ease and left feeling confident that the problem, although serious, could be fixed. My treatment spanned over a 15-month period.

“Throughout this time, the treatment I received from Dr Friel was of the absolute highest standard. From the outset, I felt confident in what was going to be achieved, as each part of the treatment was thoroughly explained to me. Being a very complex treatment, there was obviously pain involved, but I really did feel that this was kept to an absolute minimum.

“RESTORED MY CONFIDENCE”

“Dr Friel‘s attention to detail and his patience continually impressed me throughout treatment. My treatment was finalised two weeks ago with my two new teeth being put in and I am absolutely delighted with the result. The shape and shade of each new tooth has exceeded my expectations and the overall effect has restored my confidence. I would highly recommend Dr Friel not only to friends, but also to other professional sportsmen.”

We were delighted – as we always are – to receive feedback from a patient. The entire teams appreciated the time taken to put together a testimonial. And it was particularly good to learn that this patient’s smile makeover – or even smile rescue – had been appreciated so much. The testimonial for this patient was received after treatment completion in 2011 but the sentiment and the benefits to patients from implant surgery still remain the same.
