The Somnowell appliance fitted for my husband by Andre has been a great success. It enabled us to have a stress free holiday without the usual sleepless nights due to snoring and the resultant lack of energy. It is surprising and gratifying that such a simple appliance can make such a significant difference.
We were especially impressed by the prompt, professional and friendly service received from Andre Hedger and his team at the surgery.
The investment in the device was significant, but worth every penny!!
I had a very severe dental phobia from a very bad childhood experience which meant I didn't go to a dentist for over thirty years, would have nothing to do with anyone in this trade and coped with severe pain rather than receive treatment.
Someone put me on to Andre in Bookham who had a reputation for looking after people with phobias and nervous people.
Andre doesn't use needles in his treatment which was the mainstay of my phobia having had one broken whilst in my gum. the man who did made the mistake of putting his fingers back in my mouth after he pulled the remains of the needle out so l bit him as hard as a 10 year old could!
Right from my first visit l was treated with kindness and sympathy and Andre and his staff were so kind and helpful to me which helped me relax enough for my first
inspection in over thirty years. Andre has a way of relaxing you enabling him to work on you and for you to gain in confidence and watch the fear fade slowly away.
Andres staff too have the same technique in helping you making the whole experience as stress free as possible.
The first visit was the most difficult but l can say now that yes l still get apprehensive about going which is perfectly healthy and normal but l have total confidence in Andre and his staff in the way they helped me overcome my phobia and fear. Having lived with it for so many years it's nice to lose it and all the baggage that goes with it.
My Sincerest thanks go to Andre and his very helpful and kind staff.
I have been a patient of Andre's for many years. I have always received great care, patience and understanding - plus brilliant dentistry.
I have been a patient of Andre for more than 20 years - during the last few years I developed a phobia about tumours. Coming to see him for my 6 monthly checks was becoming extremely difficult and making me very anxious. Andre was very understanding as he looks at 'the whole person' not just your teeth! Andre recommended a few sessions of hypnotherapy with him, which have been very successful and I have come to terms with my irrational behaviour.
Andre's excellent reputation goes far and wide. He has treated my children and is now doing orthodontic work on my granddaughter. She travels from Scotland for this as my daughter will not have anyone else treat her daughter.
Such is our confidence in Andre!
What an amazing difference! Thank you so much for your hard work and patience. My new teeth have had a massive impact on my confidence and I'm very grateful to you for that
I am delighted with my new implant and thank you for all your excellent work and for your patience and kindness (and also that of the team) on the day of my operation. I am so pleased with the result and to have the gaps in my teeth replaced after a long while makes such a difference to confidence levels!
I wish to thank you for all the kind help and gentle treatment I have received at your surgery from yourself and your staff. You have given me confidence and reassurance and have enabled me to smile!
My daughter is so pleased with the work she has had done - it has changed the way she smiles and made her feel more confident.
We are extremely pleased with our son's orthodontic treatment. Alex was not keen to have any braces at 14 but now at 17 he's absolutely delighted with his smile!
"I came to Dr. Hedger with headaches, low energy and tension in the head. Since his treatment all these symptoms have virtually disappeared. I cannot recommend Andre's work highly enough."
I normally have problems after dental treatment, but have had none with your practice. Andre's work is amazing and he obviously has that magic touch!
I am delighted to be able to tell you that the hypnosis really did work! I had X-Rays all round last week and I also managed to get myself into a very relaxed state with the self hypnosis. My dentist Dr. C was very impressed!!!
I would like to thank you for the care, attention and professional way you have worked on my teeth
The upper denture is excellent - tight and comfortable - I look forward to the bottom denture being as good! Can you cure lumbago too?
Since I have been back in Japan I have done nothing but praise my experiences in your Surgery....
I really appreciate being able to count you all at the surgery as my friends - some might say a rather unusual relationship to have between a Dental Practice and one of its patients, but so it is.
Thank you for all your time, hard work and patience you spent working on my teeth. I am really pleased now with the way I look and I feel much more confident.
Many thanks for all the excellent Dentistry.
Thank you for your kindness and courtesy in explaining to me in greater detail than my own dentist what was happening to my dentures.
Thank you so much for taking me on as a patient, I am so grateful for your kindness and expertise.
Thanks for the enduring patience. I am grateful for at last finding you all and feeling safe.
I would like to say thank you for my dental treatment and understanding on your part for someone like myself who worries so much and is so nervous. What is obviously an awkward procedure was made easier for me by your care.
This is to thank you for all the good advice and reassurance you gave me when I saw you yesterday -ostensibly to just get my teeth checked! You are so much more than just a dentist!
This is a thank you to you and all 'team members' because I am so pleased with my front teeth. They really do look better than I can remember and I so appreciate the professionalism and care of you all."
"Thank you for my smile"
