Dr Moraes has transformed my dental health.
As he will testify, his approach is not revolutionary, but when compared to other (UK) dentists, he really is a break from the norm.
He has an exceptional manner, very friendly and personable, and puts you at ease from the first second. The key to Dr Morae's approach though is that he avoids lecturing you like teacher to naughty child. His role is to help, to educate, to inform, he does not want you to fear coming to the dentist. Rather than just telling me to floss more, he explained why it was important and this was a motivation in itself, he even showed me the best way to do it!
The pinnacle of my excellent experience with Dr Moraes was having a crown replaced in May. My old crown was fitted by an NHS dentist in my teens, over 15 years ago. It was very unsightly from the outset and often appeared grey and discoloured, particularly in sunlight. A barrage of ridicule from my peers at the time led me to become very, very self-conscious about this, to the point where I avoided showing my teeth when smiling. This became normal behaviour for me.
It has been an absolute revelation to now have a crown that looks exactly like a real tooth. It is the mirror of the partner tooth and was painstakingly crafted by Dr Morae's fantastic technician, Atsu. I discussed the colour and shape in depth, in advance. I wasn't disappointed.
Dr Moraes and his team put me at ease for the duration of fitting the crown. I felt absolutely no pain throughout and they talked me through every part of the procedure. Dr Moraes even re-shaped a section of my gum to compliment the new crown., again, this was painless.
I have recommended Dr Moraes to all my family and friends and often find myself sharing his approach to dental health. I hope to keep him as my dentist for many years to come.
It feels amazing to be smiling again, thank you!
"FROM DAY ONE THE INTERACTION WITH ITALO WAS LIKE NONE OTHER THAN I HAD HAD IN THE DENTAL ENVIRONMENT...
IT WAS INSTEAD LIKE PICKING UP WHERE I HAD LEFT OFF WITH A UNIVERSITY COLLEAGUE WHOM I TRUSTED 200%. AND IT STILL IS."
From my very first appointment I have felt 100% confident in Dr Moraes and I'm thrilled with my new teeth.
He and his team do everything to make sure you understand the treatment, what will happen, the procedures and they listen to every question you have - even if you ask a lot!
My experience was that they ensure you feel comfortable and pain free throughout - this has by far been the best dental clinic I've visited anywhere in the world. The level of expertise in cosmetic dentistry is incredible and I would highly recommend a visit for anyone who values you a great smile.
"I COMPLETELY TRUST AND RECOMMEND DR. ITALO CARPES MORAES. I WAS IMPRESSED SINCE MY FIRST APPOINTMENT, 3 OR 4 YEARS AGO. HE HAS THE ABILITY OF PUTTING PATIENTS AT EASE AND HE ALSO EXPLAINS US THE IMPORTANCE OF TAKING CARE OF OUR DENTAL HEALTH."
I am dangerously near the age of 50 and spent a life as a "failed professional" sportsman but banker for the time being... I had a super bad crash on my bike aged 16 obliterating my front teeth.
Ever since I went though life with various half decent / passable combinations of replacement teeth. Never really happy with them but more important things in life etc was what I recited to myself..
In my 40s I began to get round to the things I really should have got nailed once and for all and this was a box I needed to tick. I was recommended Italo after a series of strange coincidences.
I can't say it was life changing yet. But 3 months later I can testify that the last time I was as comfortable with my smile and front 4 teeth was shortly before going to Yarm on my bike with tennis rackets and a football 330 miles away and 33 years ago.
From day one the interaction with Italo was like none other than I had had in the dental environment... It was instead like picking up where I had left off with a university colleague whom I trusted 200%. And it still is.
I have no hesitation in recommending him and would be happy to pay testimony to his competence.
"FOR YEARS, I’VE BEEN HARANGUED, LECTURED AND BOSSED BY DENTISTS. AND IT DIDN’T WORK … MY BRUSHING TECHNIQUE REMAINED AWFUL.
THEN, I MET ITALO.
HIS MOTIVATIONAL STYLE, CALM MANNER, AND CLEAR EXPLANATIONS WORKED THEIR MAGIC. A GREAT CHARACTER WITH SUPERB COMMUNICATION SKILLS. HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!"
I broke my front tooth and had it ‘fixed’ by my local NHS dentist who spent about 10 minutes on a white filling. It looked terrible and I was very self-conscious of it but I was under the impression the only way I could improve it cosmetically was to have a crown or a porcelain veneer which I did not really want to do. I had been going to Smilepod quite regularly for teeth cleaning as it is convenient being close to my office and I met with Dr Italo and we spoke about my front tooth.
Dr Italo explained that he could improve the look of it massively with a white filling done properly. We discussed it at length and I was very reassured by him. He was very confident that he could achieve a great result which is something I just did not think was possible with a white filling.
Dr Italo spent nearly two hours on my tooth and now you would not know there was a white filling there. He was absolutely meticulous with his work and I could not be happier with the results.
Your smile is so important and he has restored my confidence. Thank you very much Dr Italo!
