A word from our patient – Hugh Butcher of Tadcaster

I have always looked after my teeth – a strict father made sure of that! Even as a small child I learned how to “rubber” my teeth with an elastic band pulled between them. Because I had no troublesome issues I only went to the dentist intermittently over the years. Then, at the age of seventy-six, I experienced an extremely painful dental abscess and so, when my wife recommended Hopkinson Dental, I reluctantly agreed to make an appointment.

When I met Adam Kharchi, I found, to my astonishment, that my teeth were not in as good condition as I had assumed.  Reassuringly though, I found that I hadgreat confidence in Adam. My consultation was very thorough and entailed use of the most modern dental equipment along with Adam’s up-to –date knowledge and wide experience. The rationale for any treatment options and their pros and cons were explained in a marvelously clear way and I was encouraged to engage in decision-making withAdam. Plenty of time was available for any questions and advice was given into how to maximise my dental health – not just in the here and now, but into the future.

I then embarked on some treatment sessions and found, to my relief that dental treatment from Adam is totally different from previous experiences. Adam began by gently rehearsing the procedures with me. During treatment calmness pervaded and everything progressed in a highly professional and confident fashion. Dental Nurse Gabriela was anticipating his every move and ensured that everything was ready and on-hand without delay. A summary of the treatment, along with advice about immediate after-care was shared at the end before leaving

The Hopkinson ‘model’ is to work with you long-term, embracing as many preventative measures as part of your daily dental routine as necessary. Regular consultations with the hygienists Jane and Emma are an integral component of this model.

In short, Adam is by far the best Dentist I have ever had!
