Dr Tony Aneiros has literally changed my life. It sounds very dramatic to say having my teeth done could have such a huge effect, but it truly has. For the first time I can smile without dropping my face to the floor or covering my mouth. The dental team talked through all of my options and made it possible for me to have the work done at a price I could afford. They were so friendly and professional that all of my usual worries associated with dentistry simply weren't there! Now I smile freely and confidently. I can't wait to smile from ear to ear on my wedding day and be proud of my teeth. I never imagined that it would effect the rest of me in such a positive way, but it really has.

At 50 years of age and petrified with dentistry – putting off way too many check-ups and enduring what I now know was unnecessary pain and discomfort – I happened upon Dr Tom Sealey. ‘Never before have I felt so at ease with anybody in a “white coat” with the exception of those attractive girls in the perfume counter in Debenhams – but you know what I mean. I have since undertaken, under his guidance; Fillings, root canals, extraction and, more recently, dental alignment and a full smile makeover. I’m a radio presenter so it was with trepidation that I considered the possibility of major work in the area from which I make my living. After a very detailed and unrushed consultation (allowing me plenty of time to have all queries and concerns answered), we discussed the various options that were available with a full explanation of the pros and cons of each and every treatment. I had no doubt whatsoever that all available treatments were available to me and that, whatever route I chose, I was in the very best hands – a feeling that put me at such ease people who knew of my fear of dentistry (which really was immense) found astonishing. In their words, “I’d been hypnotised” to be as confident as I honestly felt. The team at Start Smiling – from reception, to Rhonda, Dr Tom’s exceptionally capable, soft spoken assistant, made me feel I really was valued and that I would be guided every step, with reassurance from the very beginning through to what I hoped would be anything like as good as the portfolio of previous happy clients. I’m not an emotional man but truly shed a tear when after just months of Cfast braces, whitening and bonding, I had the smile I wish I’d had many years previous. I now smile in family photos as opposed to the hard look I had adopted, appearing to never look like I enjoyed the many happy moments spent with my family. As a successful radio presenter, it is not uncommon for me to be approached at what I’m pleased to say is a regular occurrence for a “selfie” which I have never been happier to now willingly take part in, previously I was embarrassed if I’m honest. My life has been turned around, I cannot recommend highly enough the professionalism with which Dr Tom and his team handled my treatment. I was informed, guided and valued and taken on a journey that has changed my perception of dentistry. I have never had such a U-turn in any profession – Dr Tom and his team are a credit to the industry and I cannot recommend them highly enough to anybody who will listen. I will smile for many years – not just at the results but because the experience has given me confidence to tackle other tasks in life I didn’t think I could handle – and will do so smiling!

I am a nervous patient and had two implants placed with Dr Tony Aneiros at the same time as having some bad teeth taken out. I found the whole experience and support from the team to be very professional. I had no pain the next day, which I couldn't believe, and now have a new set of comfortable lower teeth kept in place with the dental implants. I been very happy with all the treatment since.

“I was first referred to Alison (Hygienist) in April 2008. My gums were receeding and bled everytime I brushed my teeth. She deep cleaned my teeth and put me on a course of antibiotics. She taught me how to clean my teeth properly. With perseverance my bleeding has been reduced from 63% to 7%. The depth recession of my gums has been reduced from 59% to 4%. My gums have been made healthy enough for me to have my veneers fitted and to be confident enough to smile again”.
