Firstly, I will always remember speaking to Paula for the first time – her care, fantastic efficiency, and great kindness to me regarding my daughter’s accident. My daughters teeth were a great concern to me and as her mother, I wanted to best for her. I have certainly found that in Russell who explained the treatment in great detail, who put us at ease and nothing was too much trouble. The end result is just fantastic! I would have no hesitation recommending StoneRock and would be more than happy to do so”. E.G. Oxted, Surrey

” Thank you, Ian, for the successful root filling and crown. I was afraid of dentists as a child that got over this as I grew up.

All your staff are most helpful and I am grateful to you all.” K.H.

“Today I experienced my first appointment of Root Surface Debridement. To claim I was scared, nervous, frightened and apprehensive of the process probably would sum up some of my feelings. Dr Mitchelle Mbaeri and Amiee were both very understanding, caring and supportive and gave encouragement and clear instructions/guidance of what would happen next throughout my one-hour appointment. They work well as a team and are a credit to the practice.” H.T.

“My first experience of implant? Fantastic, no pain, no worries what-so-ever! Thank you, Richard and Amiee for an enjoyable experience.” M.L-B.
“Mitchelle, Amiee and the receptionists, as well as being very professional are also extremely caring, kind and thoughtful. The little touches, the vaseline on my lips, was much appreciated. Dentists are not my favourite people, but at StoneRock I felt cared for and relaxed – enough to have a laugh! Thank you so much.” R.M.
“I have found that with all staff, receptionists, dental nurses and the dentists, everyone is highly professional in their service to me. The receptionists, Paula and Nicky are polite and helpful. Mitchelle whom I have met and have had working on my teeth is very knowledgeable, professional, caring and gentle in her manner. Amiee is lovely and is very welcoming, A highly efficient and caring individual who is very attentive. I certainly don’t feel the normal trepidation in coming to the dentist as many people do, as I know I’m always in good hands, plus I always seem to leave with a smile on my face. Good work from everyone, well done to all!” N.A.

“Dear All. I really don’t know where to start, except perhaps with a HUGE thank you. You are all STARS. My superstars in the order I was introduced to them, have to be – Christine, Russell and the last to take centre stage, Ian! Thank you, Thank you, Thank you. You have all been wonderful, looking back I can’t believe I was such a baby! It’s not just the wonderful dentistry you do, it’s the caring, the little things; warm welcome, telephone calls before and afterwards too to make sure everything went according to plan. The whole thing makes into something special. Christine and Russell, I believe you know I can trust you now. But Ian I would like you to know, just how much I appreciate what you achieved for me last time. You said I may have some discomfort the next day, and that this would be normal. I rushed home, of course expecting the worst…! Waiting for something terrible to happen. It was fantastic, no pain whatsoever, from the moment I left you. Everything feels so much better, there are no words. Things have been so strange of late (waiting for the 48 hours to pass…), I promise you, you’ve achieved a miracle. My deep and sincere thanks”. V.T.
“To a wonderful team, I cannot thank you too much for all you have done for me, the support from all of you has been second to none. Thank you again”. T.M.

“It was great fun. My teeth are very well and I liked the slidey chair!” G.H.
“Thank you, Russell, for a nice jolly experience as always!” P.H.
“Ian, I am absolutely fine again today and so grateful to you for having saved that beastly tooth! You are a wonderful dentist – not only very, very skilled but a terribly good ‘people person’. No matter how capable people are, they fall short if they are incapable of providing understanding and reassurance – this is particularly important for anyone in the health care of any kind, but also in many other walks of life and some people just do not have it.” J
“Having just completed the treatment for implants, I would like to say a big thank you to all at StoneRock and would strongly recommend.”D.W.
“I have not been to the dentist for 8 years (I am ashamed to admit). I had a toothache that was akin to ‘labour pains’ every 20 minutes and doubled over the worktop! I discovered this dentist by chance and the first thing I did was to cry my eyes out in the chair! I was reassured and comforted – NEVER made to feel silly or irresponsible for my dental fear or the state of my teeth. I have now had a root canal on my tooth with oral sedation (I thought I may need knocking out!) and I am so proud of myself.”
The dentists Ian and Russell are patient and caring and the nurses professional and sympathetic. The receptionists are helpful and polite and never sigh. I have recommended my experience to all who will listen. I am now happy to come back and not filled with terror. Thank you, everyone.” H.L.
“Dear Uncle Ian, thank you for fixing my tooth. It is great. It looks like my usual tooth. It doesn’t hurt at all. Once again thank you.” R.K
“Ian, I can’t believe its over 4 years since I first had dental treatment at StoneRock. It must be yet another ‘age’ think but I would have to put it at 2 to 3 years if I didn’t have the records to prove otherwise! Over such time, it is all too easy to take for granted something that at one time was seen as exceptional. So I’m taking just a moment to thank you to you and all your colleagues for the excellent treatment I have received yesterday and over the years since my first visit.” J.L.
“First class in every way – so glad to have come here!” G.G.
“Ian, just a few lines to thank you and the team at StoneRock for your personal care and high level of professionalism throughout my recent procedure at the practice. A visit which could have been traumatic for me was instead calm, smooth and almost completely eradicated from my memory. I feel we have reached the chocolate brownie stage” I need so no more save my many thanks to you once again.”
“I have referred from a dentist in Rye, apprehensive at first, but excellent welcome by the receptionists, wonderfully helpful with local knowledge at it was my first time to Hawkhurst. Very relaxed feeling, lovely toilet and dental facilities and up-to-date magazines; a godsend. Perhaps other dental practices should visit to ‘up their game’ in the field of dentistry and presentation etc! Obviously, very content staff which is pleasing to see in today’s economy!! Hats off to the management – it works!” J.M.
“Dr Peirce I am writing to thank you for all the support, patience and professionalism you showed whilst treating my dental implant/retained crown. Being a nervous and fearful patient, your calm understanding, consideration and kindness gave me confidence with the procedure, which made it far less stressful for me. The treatment, including full explanations of operating procedures and the strategy you used, was excellent, and I am writing to confirm that I wish to have surgery for the same treatment on the second tooth we discussed. My very best wishes to you.” T.D.
“Thanks, I had a great time!” G

“A big heartfelt thank you to Ian and all the staff. You have given me my smile back and cured my fear of dentists! Thank you so much.” S.L.
“Good morning, I could not resist telling you how very, very pleased I am with the work Ian did for me yesterday. I cannot remember when I last felt this comfortable with my smile. Before the treatment I was in a lot of discomfort and feeling very anxious. Today I feel like a new me. Ian is a genius, I can’t thank you enough. Kindest regards”. S
“I am writing to bring to your attention the absolutely exceptional treatment I received from Keith Peirce ever an extemded peroiod through from what I found th absolutely teriifying propect of the extraction of my two front teeth, through the bone enhancement process to the stages of the successful and hugely pleasing fitting of the implants. Keith’s patience, kindness and exemplary reaassurance, talking me literally through every step to help me manage my extreme anxiety was absoltely extra-ordinary in its true sense of the word – in fact I am absolutely sure that I would never have been able to tolerate the level of fear I brought to the dentists chair if I had not been treated by keith. I am thrilled with the result and so I wanted to commed your colleague to you and would be grateful if you would reinforce my total satisfaction and gratitute to Keith. Additonally please extend my compliments to Lou who played an important part in soothing me through her kindness and professionalism as well as Fiona & Paula who were also part of the process of making me feel welcomed and cared for by your practice.” V

“At the beginning of the year I plucked up the courage to attend an open evening at StoneRock…. for some long time I had been concerned about my teeth and gums and eating was becoming increasingly difficult. I made an appointment to see Russell who (very kindly) recommended that I consider their All-on-4 solution. After various scans and impressions, checks I was given an appointment in April for my teeth to be removed and the 4 posts positioned under consious sedation. I remember only being sedated and then a few hours later coming round. A temporary set of teeth were fitted, they looked wonderful. For a couple of days my face was a little swollen but no pain relief was necessary after day one. I found it easy to adjust my diet to softer options. Last month my permanent teeth were fitted and they look and feel even more like my teeth used to (only much better!) The kindness, understanding and expert care from the whole StoneRock team has made my experience a very positive one. I can now eat and am absolutely delighted with my new teeth.” S
“Thank you for a great dentist appointment. Once upon a time a little child called Georgia who had smelly breath. The dentist recommended a fresh, minty toothpaste for her to try. She loved it so much that her and the fresh, minty toothpaste got married in holy matrimoney. At their wedding the Easter Bunny caught the boquet of flowers – he had to bunch Santa to get it!” Miss G. age 12
“Keith, I cant thank you enough for giving me back the confidence to smile properly again. My new front tooth is amazing! I must admit I was nervous about having an implant but as usual you put me at my ease and explained thoroughly every step of the way. I am now one very grateful lady from Tunbridge Wells!” Ms. T
“Ian, a quick note to let you know, my crown has settled beautifully, even better than before! I want to thank you, most sincerely for your care and attention to repair my crown and say how much I appreciate what you’ve done.”
“Ian and Russell, thank you so much for turning my cavernous problem into smart new teeth together! And in such a kind and friendly way.”
“Ian I just wanted to let you know how much I appreciate your practical and informative approach over these past few weeks of my ‘dental difficulties’. Your calm manner, and the way you gave me plenty of time to choose how to go forward, was such a great help. I cant believe how well it all went yesterday – thanks to your skill. Many thanks.”
