"Due to an infected dentigenous cyst on my wisdom tooth, I was examined by 3 different consultant dentists at various dental practices, all of whom suggested that dental surgery plus bone graft was required. They estimated the time under anesthetic and surgery would be in the region of 90-120 minutes.

However, following a meeting with Dr Abdel Tawfik who is a Consultant Oral Surgeon and is a specialist in Sedation at the SDS, I decided that I would follow his expert advice and had the procedure performed by him in under 20 minutes and thankfully did not require a bone graft as the previous dentists had advised.

A month later and I am pleased to say that I am extremely happy with the results of my dental operation and relieved by the short sedation recommended by Dr Tawfik. Although it was a slightly complicated procedure, Dr Tawfik made the whole process much easier and far less daunting.

I thoroughly recommend Dr Tawfik’s practice and wish him continued success in the future."
