At the age of 19, I suffered an accident that nearly 20 years later would lead to the loss of my front tooth. The thought of losing my tooth caused me a great deal of anxiety throughout the years but as soon as I met Pete for the first time I felt reassured and at ease. My dentist had recommended that I consult Pete about the possibility of replacing the tooth with a dental implant.
My case was quite complicated and in order to achieve a good result, I first required a significant amount of orthodontic treatment. The communication between Pete and my orthodontist was fantastic and it gave me great confidence that they cared just as much about the outcome as I did.
After a significant amount of work, I am absolutely delighted with my new smile and can’t thank Pete and his whole team enough. Pete sets very high standards and it is obvious that dentistry is more than just a job to him. Pete’s experience, skill and attention to detail shine through and I cannot recommend him highly enough.
It would be unfair not to mention the rest of the team who were also fantastic. They were always friendly, welcoming and very efficient. You can have great confidence in Pete and his team, No 9 really is a fantastic dental practice!
I visited No9 dental practice on a personal recommendation. I knew that Dr Peter Buchan had won many awards for his cosmetic dental work so I felt totally reassured.
I arranged my first visit over the phone, the receptionist was lovely, really helpful and accommodating. I flew up from London Gatwick for the day and went along to my first appointment. From that first meeting, all the staff were so lovely and kind. I felt totally at ease.
Dr Buchan explained my treatment plan fully – he told me exactly what would happen, when and how. So I left that day feeling very confident and excited about getting a new smile.
I had my treatment, which again although a lot of dental work, was a lovely experience. I was made to feel very special and I was well looked after and cared for.
When all my treatment was complete I nearly cried when I saw my new smile. It is a complete and beautiful transformation. Why didn’t I do this years ago?
It’s literally changed my life in the fact I can now smile with total confidence, I feel like a different person. Thank you so much to all the team – I’m so grateful for all you care. Please do not hesitate to go and at least have a chat about transforming your smile. The end result will be amazing.
I feel more confident with the way I look with my new dentures and would recommend anyone considering dental surgery to seriously consider using No9 Dental Practice.
I am proof (even at my age) that Peter has amazing skills and assisted by all his wonderful staff I can truly say that I am absolutely delighted with the result and the new confidence it has given me. The treatment caused me no anxiety or discomfort and certainly, there was no need for the ‘bravery’ I had anticipated.
I can only thank Peter and his team for their professionalism, their guidance and their understanding- any fears or worries I had were rationalised in a friendly and sympathetic manner… I would say to anyone; if your teeth are a source of worry or embarrassment please make an appointment for a consultation, you won’t regret it. I wish it was something I had done years ago.
Before my implants, my life was almost unbearable and the impact on my family was not good. I had been considering implants for some time but was mainly put off by the lengthy process and costs. However, having come through the whole process without any problems or pain, my whole experience was certainly worth the cost and time. I have taken on a whole new lease of life and can’t thank you enough.
The quality of care was excellent! To anyone thinking of getting braces, I would definitely encourage them to do so. My only regret is that I didn’t get them sooner. I am so happy with the end result, and it has made me a lot more confident, as I was self-conscious of my teeth beforehand. I am so glad that I finally went through with this treatment. It was well worth the time and money.
I was recommended by my own dentist to No9. The first appointment I had was great from when I walked in the door…The quality of care I received was second to none. The implants were in and I never felt a thing.
When my treatment was finished I could not stop smiling as I could not believe the end result… This is the best decision I have ever made in my life and I have never felt so at ease going to the dentist, from the minute you walk in the door Peter and his staff are truly fantastic.
Peter was recommended to me by a friend who herself is having extensive treatment undertaken and as a result of my treatment I myself would have absolutely no hesitation in recommending him for treatments involving dental implants, braces and crowns.
Since having my treatment done the benefits I have felt have been enormous. Not only do my new implants and crown look great and seamlessly blend with my other (wonderfully straightened) teeth, but the difference I have experienced with eating has changed my life!
I would just like to comment on the excellent care I received at your Practice. I came all the way from Sussex to attend your clinics and was not disappointed. Everything from the initial contact as a new patient and the flexibility in your booking system to the high standard of my care was first class.
I received a thorough check-up from your Dentist and an in-depth discussion of my treatment options. The gaps in my teeth that have bothered me for so long have now been filled with bonding and the transformation is amazing. It has been noticed by many!
Thank you very much. I have recommended you highly to friends and family.
I would like to thank you and your staff for an excellent job on replacing my crown. I did not think that it would be such a marvellous match and I can now laugh and smile without being self-conscious anymore.
My wife is also delighted with the result and members of my family could not tell which tooth it was!
I was very impressed with your attention to detail and the way all the staff were both helpful and reassuring.
It has been a very worthwhile investment and excellent value for money. I would definitely recommend anyone to use your services in the future.
I had some dental work started in Budapest 3 years ago… I developed an infection… the implants were in the wrong place… I visited various dentists… I did not hold out any hope when I agreed to speak to Pete Buchan at No9 Dental Practice.
I found the whole experience extremely pleasant, all the staff have been brilliant, very helpful and always professional, and very caring.
I really liked the fact that Pete works with you to produce the ‘look’ you want to achieve rather than a dental standard.
I have now started to improve my lower set of teeth to match; after my four front teeth were finished I could not believe how much easier chewing has become.
Hubby is now ‘well jel’ of my new teeth and thinking of getting his done.
I would recommend No9 Dental Practice to anyone considering cosmetic dental treatment, there really is no need to travel to foreign places, when an extremely talented cosmetic dentist is on your doorstep.
I would like to thank you very much for the excellent treatment which I received in respect of the implant which you inserted.
I was initially anxious, but almost immediately felt able to relax given the professional, sensitive and caring approach of all the staff at the practice. You explained to me in a very clear way exactly what the treatment entails and this was very helpful and reassuring. I would have no hesitation in recommending anyone to have treatment at No9 Dental Practice.
The implant is a great improvement on the bridge and crown which I previously had. It feels completely natural, to the extent that I wish I’d had it done several years ago.
In short, it has been a good investment of time and money, and I would have no hesitation in having further implants if required.
Once again thank you all very much.
After several years of pain, it is difficult to put into words how relieved I was to meet Peter and the other members of staff. Peter managed to put my mind at ease by his manner and quiet confidence.
From the onset, the practice was able to make me feel my care was important to them. It was obvious they enjoyed their work and worked very well together. I chose to have them discuss what was happening during the procedure and was able to relax knowing that Sharon understood everything Peter was doing and, at times, was able to comment on how well his technique was working.
Peter is an excellent dental surgeon and I think perhaps a perfectionist.
I find it quite difficult to put into words just how grateful I am to Peter and the staff at No9. I cannot thank them enough for giving me back my faith in the dental profession. I value their moral outlook as well as their professional care.
In fact, on my last visit, I found myself to be quite emotional with feelings of great relief. I had been suffering pain for years and I just wish I’d been lucky enough to find Peter and No9 earlier.
My crown and implant look very natural and I can now bite an apple again and do not have to worry about breaking them…Peter was just so careful at every stage.
Couldn’t think of a better dentist to come to.
After a good few years of nervously attending Dr Buchan’s Surgery for my check-ups, I have moved away from the area, so will unfortunately no longer be able to attend.
It’s a sad day, as a good dentist that you can trust is a comforting thing to have. I have received great treatment and excellent care from all the staff at No9 and just wanted to say goodbye and thank-you.
Now that the treatment is over and my implant is firmly in place, I thought I would just let you know how delighted I am with the finished result. It looks so natural and nobody would ever know it was not one of my own teeth. I only wish that I had taken the plunge sooner!
…I think you will remember how absolutely terrified I was when I came into the surgery…I was a quivering jelly that morning. The level of care and attention were given to me prior to the actual procedure and during it was absolutely wonderful.
From the receptionist to kind nurse, to you, I felt I was being treated with the utmost consideration. You all put me at ease and afterwards I wondered what I had worked myself up so much about.
Each appointment thereafter has been of similar nature and everything has been explained well along the way.
I would recommend having an implant carried out to anyone. It has certainly been an extremely good experience for me and the results are fantastic.
“It is a true pleasure for me to write those few words of recommendation for Peter & his team at No 9.
I have lived for years uncomfortable & unhappy with my teeth; I always believed cosmetic dentistry was out my reach, following a landmark birthday I decided to gift myself with at least a little research into the world of cosmetic dentistry.
I approached No 9 Dental Practice looking for a solution to my teeth insecurities that had been plaguing me for years. I had been for consultations at other dentists but had never gone through with any treatment as I couldn’t see how the procedures they suggested could fit into my life.
During my first consultation, I was immediately struck by Pete’s ability to make me feel at ease, he paid so much attention to detail & gave such insightful advice and information that I knew that this was the right practice for me. Beside his friendly, happy attitude which helped me relaxing before and during treatments, I genuinely believe he is someone that honestly cares & most importantly will not compromise his high professional standards while ensuring he achieves the right results for the patient.
After the end of my initial consultation I scheduled a follow-up meeting, this allowed me time to reflect on the information I’d been given & Pete time to develop the treatment plan that would be right for me. I attended my second appointment & we decided together what treatment was the best in my circumstances.
Pete had worked up a model to show me what he could achieve with my teeth, it was amazing, I couldn’t believe that it was possible!!! I did, however, have a small internal groan that I could for the first time see the teeth I had always wanted but now we had to talk costs; I braced myself (no pun intended) when I asked the question & was pleasantly surprised (well delighted) at the affordability of the treatment.
We set out the treatment plan & over a course of four appointments I now have the teeth I have always aspired to have; I’m 100% pleased with my smile now. I am still amazed at how fantastic my teeth look. The result from having been a dingy yellow for as long as I can remember to now being so beautifully white, all my family, friends & colleagues commenting on the huge difference is just fantastic. I can’t stop smiling and it has given me so much more confidence in every part of my life.
I would also like to thank the team that surrounds Pete – Sharon, Jenna & Stephanie all of whom I feel have been on this journey with me & who I think were as excited about the results as I was! I would honestly recommend anyone who wants to or is thinking about making changes to their smile to consult Pete at No 9.”
“I have recently undergone dental implant treatment carried out at No9 Dental practice, having had problems with various forms of dentures…The main concern I had was the cost of implants- it is not inexpensive but certainly worth the financial outlay in terms of promoting self-confidence every time you open your mouth or smile.
Initially, I was apprehensive about the treatment but soon given reassurance by the professionalism of Peter Buchan and his specialist team of staff at No9…If like me you have considered this type of treatment in the past but never quite got round to making the next step let me assure you that the benefits to be had most definitely outweigh the cost involved.”
“I was in desperate need to find a dentist, a true dentist, one I could trust and who knew what they were doing. After failed attempts at this and now having teeth worse than when I started, I landed here… at No9. The technical standards are extremely high combined with very strong aesthetics and moral values (important) the results can only be described as astounding. I do not exaggerate.
Definitely the right choice, this time, only regret I did not find this practice earlier.
My teeth are looking like my own. No, perhaps better.”
“It was January 2011 when I was first introduced to No9 Dental Practice through a work colleague. I was very nervous as I hadn’t been to a dentist in over 20 years. The staff at N09 were very understanding and patient, the quality of care I received was exceptional. My advice would be, don’t hesitate to book an appointment today as the transformation was life-changing. Just being able to smile again without being self-conscious, to me, a great investment of time and money. Thanks again”
