After losing my front teeth, I thought my only option was dentures which I did not want. Glenn suggested a dental bridge which is fixed so would look and feel like my own teeth. He explained the procedures and showed me a model of how the teeth would eventually look. This gave me the confidence to go ahead with the treatment. It took several sessions over a few weeks but he always explained what he was going to do and answering any questions I might have to put me at my ease.
The end result was fantastic. I can now smile without embarrassment. Glenn and the team provide excellent patient care, giving us their care and attention to make our visits as relaxed as possible. I would recommend their dental clinic to all.
I am so pleased with the treatment and service I received from Dr. Glenn Steffin and the staff at East Preston Dental Clinic.
Before I became a patient I have been experiencing a lot of pain and discomfort, which had not been resolved. I was apprehensive of changing to another dentist but I am so glad that I did.
Dr. Steffin was able to identify the cause of my problems and advised me of the best course of treatment, reassuring me all of the way.
My treatment is now complete and I am pain free and my teeth look and feel so much better.
I fully recommend East Preston Dental Clinic as they provide excellent patient care and good value for money.
I was delighted with the care taken and the quality of the treatment/service received from all the staff at the Ferring Dental Clinic.
I would encourage anyone to place themselves in the capable hands of Dr. Steffin at this customer friendly clinic.
The dental treatment that I received (after many years of self neglect) was first class, painless and gave me the confidence to ‘greet the world’ with a smile once again.
On reflection, I can honestly say that the treatment and service was excellent value for the money and outlay made.
I would recommend anyone to sample the service and pain free treatment the clinic provides.
I would like to thank you most sincerely for the first class treatment I received from yourself in the work you were forced to do in putting my teeth in order for the many efforts I had experienced from other practises that left the problems worse.
I can only say that at last I am now able to enjoy my meals with real enjoyment. Thank you, which was worth every penny paid, so I know where to come.
Dear Dr Steffin,
I am writing to you to say how much I appreciate your skills as a caring and gentle dentist.
I do know that it is never top on anyone’s “to do list” to visit the dentist and, more often than not, patients find it is a nerve racking ordeal, but it has to be faced. However, together with your kindness and reassurance, they will feel less worried or afraid.
As far as I am concerned, you have taken away any possible nervousness and apprehension that I have ever felt with other dentists in the past.
I have absolutely no problem at all recommending you to my friends and neighbours.
I have been a patient at Dr. Steffins surgery for nearly two years originally in East Preston and later the Ferring surgery. The treatment I received was carried out with the utmost care and every step was thoroughly explained. I was to feel totally at ease by the whole team. Believe me I feel a new women!
Even my husband who was extremely nervous had an extraction and a filling without an injection! To us Dr Steffin is a genius and we recommend him most highly and his expertise is worth every penny.
I am writing to you to let you know how pleased I am with the service you provide.
Since registering with your practice, I have always received the best treatment, from walking through your door to leaving after my appointments.
I am completely at ease in your clinic, and am treated as a person which other clinic’s do not do. The quality of treatment is extremely good. I never have to worry about my teeth anymore because of your excellent treatment. It is worth my time and my money to have you as my dentist. I am always totally at ease when I visit you, and I could not receive better care.
I am writing to you so that you can put on record how pleased I am with the service that has been provided by East Preston Dental Clinic.
Although I do not mind having an operation I have been, in the past, nervous about having dental treatment. However, I would like to say that you have always been very gentle and reassuring.
I am also very pleased with the standard of the work carried out and felt the fees were reasonable.
May I also say that everybody who works in the practice are both charming and efficient.
I have and would recommend your services.
Whenever I attended my old Hygienist she made my mouth bleed and poked around so much I had headaches after. I used to dread going but I do need my teeth cleaning as I am a smoker.
I met this team at a Wedding Fayre and they suggested trying their hygienist, well I had nothing to lose really as I wasn’t really looking forward to going back to my old one. When I got there I was approached by very friendly staff and they made me feel very comfortable before going in. I explained to the lady what had happened before and she told me that my teeth/gums should not bleed or have headaches. She explained everything to me as she was working on my teeth. Before I knew it, she had carried out her work and I set off back to work feeling great. When I looked in the mirror I could not believe how clean they were and looked whiter than ever before and I didn’t have any whitening done!
The price was exactly the same but the service was much better. I would recommend anyone who has experience what I had to give them a try like I did and I promise you will not be disappointed.
I hope you are well. I write to say a big thank you and all of your colleagues for the support you have provided throughout 2013.
It has been a trying year and to not have to worry about my dental health, knowing it’s in good hands, feels pretty good.
A year ago I started going to East Preston Dental Clinic and in that time I have had various things done. I have always been really pleased with the treatment I have received. Glenn and his staff are very caring and provide all you could want from a dental clinic.
A couple of days ago I needed to have a tooth removed and I can honestly say it was a painless procedure. I didn’t even know that my tooth was out until Glenn showed it to me!
I would not have the slightest hesitation in recommending East Preston Dental Clinic to anybody.
I am only too pleased to write a testimonial letter as I have been very pleased with the treatment I have received at your clinic. Not only have I had a crown put in place but also tooth whitening which I have had many comments on.
I would like to say that from the moment I stepped through the doors of the clinic, I was treated with the utmost respect. I found the service to be the friendliest and taking into account the fact that I am of a nervous disposition in relation to dental procedures, I found all the staff but in particular Glenn, to be a calming influence.
I will most certainly continue to recommend the clinic to my friends.
First of all I am honoured that you have asked me to write about my experience with you and your Dental Clinic.
I came to the Clinic about a year ago after being with a NHS Clinic for many years and was told that my teeth and mouth were healthy. I was not convinced and wanted a second opinion as my mouth was getting me down and I felt my health was suffering.
What I like about Glenn is he put you at ease, explained why and how he will solve the problem to my teeth and gums using visual aids, explains in a language which makes sense and is very precise in everything he does. The Clinic portrays a professional clean and up to date environment with an effective communication system in place, with a friendly caring helpful staff who work well together, giving confidence to the patient.
Glenn suggested that I should change all my filling in my mouth as they were old and starting to break down giving a bad taste in my mouth. Glenn could not tell from the x ray if there was decay in my teeth due to metal compound in the old filling which caused shadows in my teeth and the white filling were more healthy and decay is seen on x rays. I knew that my body rejected metal from the operation I had so this made sense to me. Glenn then would replace the crowns as my gums had receded. I was worried how much this treatment would cost me and was pleased to have a written estimate stating the work to be done and the cost so I knew exactly where I was. So I agreed to have the work done.
I believe I had 16 teeth fillings changed and Glenn found 6 teeth had decay in them and 5 crowns changed with decay in 3 of them. Well worth doing as I could have lost my teeth so easily. I had the work done in 6 long sessions as I wanted to have it done quickly.
I also saw Emma the Hygienist she helped me so much in educating me in how to keep my teeth clean. Yes, I know you may laugh but between us I managed to stop my gums receding and bleeding which has helped my health no end. I see Emma every 3 month and I think it is money well spent.
I am so pleased with my teeth I have managed to talk my wife into starting her treatment with Glenn and she has had trouble with teeth all her life and was so nervous about going. I believe that she is now generally excited to see her mouth when the work is completed.
Do I think having me teeth done is a good investment of time and money? Yes, as I feel better about myself and more confident.
I am just writing to let you know how very pleased I am with the results of the dental treatment you carried out on my behalf.
As you know, I was extremely nervous at the thought of having the work done but cannot speak too highly not only as to the results but also to the kindness and consideration shown throughout.
I would have no hesitation in recommending your services to anybody and have in fact already done so.
It gives me pleasure to recommend your clinic because I was so happy with your treatment.
To anyone who is nervous at having dental treatment, I can reassure them that they will change their minds after visiting the Ferring Dental Clinic.
Dr. Glenn Steffin is so kind and gentle, I found it a pleasure to meet him and his treatment was completely painless. The work that he did for me has made such a difference and I now have so much more confidence and shall never be worried about my teeth again.
I can honestly say that visiting the Ferring Dental Clinic was not only a nice experience – but a good investment of my time and money.
Thank you for taking me from the realms of despair with regards to going to a dentist to someone, who still a tad nervous feels confident whilst in your care. With all the best wishes Lizzie Franklin.
May many more nervous patients feel as I do and walk through the door feeling calmer in themselves.
And that includes the lovely nurses & reception.
Dear Michelle and Glenn,
Just to say thank you for fitting me in quickly last Friday for my big filling…I’m pleased to say – all’s well at present. I’ve finished course of antibiotics, and had “no pain” at all. Many thanks for your care and kindness. It’s much appreciated. I will see you…some when, not too soon hopefully.
Dear Dr. Steffin
Thank you for asking for my views on your dental practice. I am very pleased that I made the choice to come to your practice. I came on recommendation from a couple that I know, after saying in conversation that i had lost my nerve to go back to my dentist.
The treatment I have received has made me lose the fear of the dentist chair (I have walked out of a dentist before now, as I was so nervous). The receptionist is exceptionally friendly and put you at ease, which makes a big difference when you enter the practice.
The use of the “wand” has also been a very big benefit to me as I am terrified of the needle. There is no pain nor after pain when the numbness goes. This to me has taken the stress out of dental treatment altogether. Dr. Steffin is wonderful in explaining all that he is going to do, and you can see the before and after treatment on screen. The treatment that I have received has meant that I can now smile and laugh and not be embarrassed about my teeth.
I must say it has been worth every penny, I have also recommended several of my friends who have taken up the option of Denplan enabling them to have first class treatment without worrying if they can afford it.
I can thoroughly recommend East Preston Dental Clinic, Dr. Steffin and his friendly staff to anyone especially people who are nervous like me.
After our family dentist of many years retired, my husband and I were transferred to a dental practice in Worthing – and it wasn’t a good experience!
So – we moved to Dr Steffin’s practice in East Preston, and then Ferring, and we couldn’t have chosen any better.
He and his team are superb – from the minute we first contacted them they have been really friendly and made us feel totally comfortable – and everything is explained, which makes us feel more at ease without dental treatment.
The hygienist is equally good – my teeth and gums haven’t been this healthy in many years thanks to her gentle but expert guidance and treatment. It almost doesn’t feel like going to the dentist! We certainly don’t dread or fear visits now, and would recommend them to anyone.
