Just to let you know that I had a wonderful steak on Friday at lunchtime, and my mother-in-law said it was important that I had a good steak just to try my tooth out (...) I might add that it is a revelation to have treatment from someone who knows how to treat patients with care. The tooth feels wonderful - in fact slightly better than the one I had before.
Dear Mr. MacFarlane,
As we are shortly moving from Newbury to West Dorset, we felt we would like to send a short note of thanks to yourself and the staff at The Briars for looking after our dental health for the past many years.Many thanks and best wishes
It's now day 2 with my new tooth and I'm very happy with it. The work you did yesterday to profile the rear surface has been very successful. There is no impact with LL1 as before. Also the augmentation to UL2 has significantly restored my speech by closing the gap.
Thank you for your work and a superb result.
Thank you so much for the fantastic job you did on my teeth, I am so pleased I have not stopped smiling. If you could email me pictures that would be great... just in case I ever forget.
To You All,
Thank you very much for your help making my new smile look so good!
At my last visit you asked me if I would let you have my feelings on the sedation technique used during my recent visit and I am very happy to do so as it may help other people who are as nervous as me. As I told you, it was brilliant. It just felt like I had fallen asleep for a couple of hours and I can honestly say that I felt no pain at all during the RCT. I do vaguely remember having an x-ray taken and being asked to bite together at the end but apart from that I was blissfully unaware of anything. For someone like me who gets extremely anxious in the dentist's chair, it was definitely the right choice and I would be more than happy to have it again should I need similar treatment in the future. I'd also just like to add that everyone involved that afternoon was very understanding and patient - thank you all very much!
Dear Mr McFarlane,
I cannot believe that something as mundane as a tooth could give so much pleasure. However I am absolutely thrilled with mine, and I can't begin to tell you how grateful I am for the perfect match and fit. I am no longer an embarrassment at meal times.
With best wishes
I have been coming to Briars for over 70 years, I have had different dentists over the years and the great standards are maintained.
Dear the Briars Team,
This is just a short not of appreciation from my new wife and I for the assistance Dc McFarlane gave to my father-in-law on Sunday Morning after his unfortunate breakfast incident, losing a capped tooth. You can imagine that 2 hours before the wedding tensions were running high, and by helping us out in this way, we managed to get him to the wedding on time and ready to give E away. We are on honeymoon now but just wanted to email you our thanks.
Thank you for all your care, skill and attention throughout, so glad to have been introduced to you.
Dear Dr Foot,
First let me express my admiration and appreciation for your very efficient lady "Angie" whom I have spoken to on two occasions today. She was pleasant and helpful in the extreme.
With every best wish, and many thanks

Hi Dr Chan,
I would like to thank you for your kindness on Monday. It was a baptism of fire having an extraction on my first appointment with you but you made it pain a free and relaxing occasion - a very special talent. Please also pass on my thanks to your lovely nurse and the receptionist - they were all so friendly, as well as being professional – great assets to the practice.
My thanks again
As I sit by the fire on a Sunday night I can reflect on the long journey from when I first visited The Briars Dental Practice to last Thursday afternoon, when I happily drove home with a complete new bridge. During all the discussions, emails re options and costs, visits treatments your approach has been totally professional. I had complete trust and faith in your ability.
I am delighted and so pleased to chat, smile and laugh at ease.
Thank you and thank you also to Karen for her work and emotional support.
Dear Mr Macfarlane,
