“I can’t praise or thank Shrik Kotecha enough and his team at Glen Dental enough for the emergency root canal treatment that he has had to do on my upper front tooth. I was really afraid that I was going to lose my front tooth however his calm manner really helped to reassure me and I am now looking back having had all the treatment and wondering why I was getting so worked up.”
