Patient RM - November 2020

 

"Dear Dr Emma,

 

I just wanted to say thank you for today. I was prepared for any eventuality to be honest, you never know how children will react to things. I’m super proud of xxxx as I know he’s generally sensitive and I’m just glad he allowed you to sort of finish the job. Thank you so much for your respectful approach. I think it’s empowering for children to feel listened to."

Patient AL - 2020

As a practising dentist with 45 years’ experience,  I am well placed to comment on another dentist’s performance. A dentist requires 3 skills that are actually unrelated to each other:

 

1. Communication - This is essential to help a patient understand what the options are, as well as the risks and benefits of each option.  The dentist also has to put the patient at ease, as dentistry is arduous to most people.  This can only be achieved by taking time to explain every aspect of the intended treatment, and deal with any and all concerns.

2. Considerate - pain-free care. The dentist has to be gentle and understanding to the patient’s needs.  If they feel pain, you must never ignore them, but give more anaesthetic.  If they need to swallow, cough, rest, visit the toilet or whatever, the dentist has to be aware of discomfort, and take prompt action to care for the patient.

3. Quality of dentistry provided - The only person able to professionally judge dental work, is another dentist.  As far as a patient is concerned, if it “didn’t hurt and looks lovely” they are satisfied.  A dentist also considers the long-term future of work carried out, as well as many other factors, so is much more critical of any other dentists’ work.

I choose my own dentist with the greatest care. Having now completed considerable implant bridge treatment over the last 2 years, I am extremely satisfied with all 3 of the above essential requirements, and am more than happy to recommend him to other patients and dentists.

Testimonials from referring dentists

"AJ Ray-Chaudhuri has been a fantastic colleague to refer patients to, both for periodontal and/ or combined periodontal - restorative assessment and planning.

I can be sure that patients will get the very best up to date care with AJ and that the dentition and periodontium will be considered as a whole in planning the road to periodontal stability and a happy customer!

AJ is also incredibly approachable and maintains open lines of coms throughout to discuss cases and update on their progress."

Dr Emily Tucker - Fellows Dental Practice Eastbourne - March 2021

 

"Dear AJ,

Thank you for treating our patient. She was absolutely thrilled with the service, the treatment outcome and the professionalism. She was very grateful to you and your team.Her husband echoed the same comments too.

Thank you again.

Kind Regards"

Dr A Jawahar - Hurst Dental Practice

"...I've been very fortunate to have the absolute pleasure of working with AJ for the last 4 years. He is one of the most approachable Consultants I have ever come across in my career and is always on hand to offer advice to myself day and night. Anyone that has met him will quickly realise his true passion in life is dentistry and his knowledge on the subject is second to none.
 

AJ is quite exceptional as he is a Specialist in multiple fields of dentistry. Having referred multiple patients to AJ over the years I know when a patient sees AJ they are receiving the very best in Specialist diagnostic advice, consequential treatment planning, gum treatment, root canal treatment, implant treatment as well as crown and bridge treatment.
 

AJ has a fantastic rapport with all the patients I have seen him treat over the years. He has always kept me informed about my patients journey with him from start to finish. I would have no hesitation to refer anyone of my family to his very attentive and detailed dental care.
 

Hearing him speak at lectures has completely changed my approach to dentistry and revitalised my passion for dentistry. Honestly speaking there is no dental problem big or small for AJ and I would fully recommend seeing him if you are looking for good quality dental treatment..."

Maninder Mann - Principle dentist Bourbon Street Dental Care

"...I have been referring to AJ for over 6 years now and I must say that I can not recommend him enough. He is a very friendly, enthusiastic and a passionate dentist. As he is a registered Specialist in many fields I feel my patients get an all-round opinion on what would be best for them. AJ is also very approachable. I can communicate with him personally by phone, text or email. I have even phoned him on a Sunday night for an opinion and he has been more than happy to help me. My patients are always kept in the loop with As excellent communication skills and regular letters from his administrative team. All my patients get on really well with AJ and all my patients are even given his personal mobile and email address just in case they have queries or problems; now that’s what I call service! On a final note when the patient finishes treatment with AJ the dental work he completes is nothing short of amazing..."

Dr H Basra - Principal dentist Conway House Dental Practice

"...I have been fortunate to be working with AJ for over 8 years now across 2 practices in central London. Knowing he is around gives a sense of calm and confidence when treating my patients and has improved my clinical knowledge hugely. 

 

I have nothing but huge admiration for AJ. He treats his fellow colleagues with respect which makes him easily approachable. He is a humble Consultant willing to share his knowledge and skills on a social and professional level without making you feel inferior. This is extremely important as it can be daunting for the majority of us that need and ask for help and guidance. 

 

I have been both fortunate to shadow him on clinics and listening to him lecture on multiple subjects. He is a Specialist in multiple fields (the last of his kind I believe!). He also has a medical law background which enables him to give a more balanced and informative view to patients and dentists which is essential in this current climate. 

 

I am constantly referring patients to AJ for both treatment planning and Restorative treatment including implants, management of gum disease, root canal treatment, crowns, bridges, dentures etc. His level of care is of an exceptional standard and he never pressures anyone into treatment. Moreover, the patient will leave the consultation appointment with a comprehensive dental report highlighting his suggestions with possible treatment and their benefit and risks. He is constantly communicating with the patient and dentist to ensure we have all understood the options. 

 

AJ believes in good planning and consent, exceptional quality of treatment and also great post-treatment care. He takes it upon himself to follow up with patients, something which my patients have been very impressed with. He is a truly accessible Consultant, reachable on his mobile, his website and social media (any time of day) and this is extremely important. 

 

AJ is the first person I would see if I ever needed any dental treatment I’m extremely dental phobic. I would never hesitate to recommend AJ as he is someone whom I would feel more than comfortable having advice and treatment with and able to send both my family and patients to in a blink of an eye..." 

Dr Ronak Patel - Victoria Dental Centre and Chiswick Park Dental Practice

"...I have referred my patients to Mr. Ray-Chaudhuri for over four years now. They have been impressed by his thorough consultations, as well as the care and dentistry that they have received. Being a Consultant in Restorative dentistry and Implantology, I have recommended him for many a expert opinion, periodontal treatments, complex Endodontics, implants and challenging Restorative cases. 

 

He has always kept me updated with regard to the patient's decision and the outcome of treatment.

 

I have also attended many of his courses, which have been very relevant and insightful.

He is ethical, kind and professional. A top-notch clinician, fantastic educator and a credit to the profession..."

Dr. Nina Kelman, Associate Dentist - Conway House Dental Practice

"...As GDPs , we face a tough dilemma for our patients when it comes to referrals for complicated Endodontic, Restorative, Periodontal  or even implant cases. I have been sending my patients to AJ for over 7 years now and never been disappointed with the treatment my patients have received.  Treatment plans have been clear and the attention to detail, not only in the patient communication but the dentistry itself, is the best I have come across. He is passionate about his work and is an inspiration to our dental team.

He is very approachable and keen to involve the referring dentist in all his treatment plans, which makes the patients feels comfortable and well looked after. I would highly recommend AJ’s professional services to patient’s and colleagues who are looking for an ethical, passionate and caring dentist..."

Dr J Basra, Prinicipal Dentist  -  Ash Tree House Dental Practice

 

Testimonials from colleagues

"I have worked with Aj at the Royal Alexandra Children's hospital in Brighton for the past two years, and I can honestly say he is the most calm, kind, patient and understanding dentist I have ever worked for. With patients and staff, dealing with sometimes extremely challenging head and neck cancer patients, Aj never seems flustered! Always having time to explain things to his nurses encouraging them to learn, and a wonderful manor with patients and their friends and relatives.

You are in great hands with Aj."
