I had a difficult wisdom tooth which had to come out and was fused to the bone. Unfortunately I got an infection in the bone afterwards, but Mr Sidebottom was very attentive and supportive and dealt with the issues in a calm and timely manner. I could not fault his caring attitude.

Mr Sidebottom provided clear information in a calm, reassuring manner, from my first consultation. He explained all the issues and answered all my questions, giving me confidence in the procedure that was to follow. On admission for day surgery he again reassured me about the procedures and answered my unasked questions because I was too nervous to think of any! I had complete confidence in him. After my operation he came to explain the process and discuss the next steps. Again, I was complete reassured.
