"Amazing experience with my disabled daughter's dentist appointment"

About: East Surrey Hospital / Paediatric dentistry

(as a parent/guardian),

My 10 year old daughter is profoundly mentally and physically disabled and does not allow her teeth to be examined. We were referred to Mr Kandiah at East Surrey Hospital. When we arrived Mr Kandiah and his assistant Viv were so welcoming and reassuring. He managed to get my daughter's mouth open without causing her any upset or discomfort and gave her teeth a thorough examination very swiftly and efficiently. He offered sound advice and also gave me a special toothbrush to help me look after her oral hygiene. All in all, it was a very relaxed experience where I had previously thought it would be stressful as my daughter  has such special needs. Thank you so much Mr Kandiah.

Dear Pops mummy,

I have passed you feedback on to Mr. Kandiah who I know was pleased to hear how satisfied you were with how he examined your daughter's teeth and the advice he gave to you.

Kind regards,
