I have been placing implants for over 15 years, as well as providing dental sedation (twilight sedation for nervous patients) following completion of the post graduate training at Guys Hospital- London.

I desperately needed new veneers and replacement crowns - my teeth, I felt, were and looked in a complete mess and I wanted my smile back. I went to see Dr Walsh for a consultation and was immediately put at ease with his calm and courteous manner. Dr Walsh explained what he could do in great detail and I have to say I was more than impressed - after several weeks of treatment I am so very very happy and absolutely thrilled with the end result. Dr Walsh helped me over my nervousness with his calm demeanour - I cannot take the smile off my face now - I have been given back great confidence and simply could not recommend Birkbeck Dentistry and Dr. Walsh enough. I would also like to say that the lovely members of the Team, including Samantha, Claire, Katherine and Tina were an absolute delight, always helpful and answering any questions. If you need a new smile you could not find a better place than Birkbeck and Dr Walsh to get one.
Had Implant treatment with Dr Walsh. He is approachable and explained the process in full and then re-explained every step of the way. Put me at my ease and never rushed the treatment, only continuing when I was ready. His team are very nice and also approachable. If you need Implant treatment, you can't go wrong with Dr Walsh, thank you. Very happy with my Implant, by the next day was totally unaware I had had it done.
Simply the best in town. Having been a customer for over 10 years I can give the practice no greater praise than to say, on my recommendation, my partner and her 16 year old daughter recently transferred to the practice from their previous one just 5 miles away. I first went to Birkbeck Dentistry over 10 years ago when I needed two implants having seen the faultless, undetectable implants Peter Walsh had done for a nurse’s two front teeth. My implants have remained looking natural from the very first day to this matching my own teeth perfectly and have given me no problems. I have also had root canal treatment and crowns at the practice again all without any follow-up problems. Already a modern practice when I joined, it has continued to invest substantially since with all up to the moment technology. You can even watch your crowns being made in a glass case while you wait in the reception area.
I am a really nervous patient and on my first apt I shook from head to toe in the chair and the dentist was very good with me and so were the nurses. Each appointment after that Mr Walsh was very caring, patient and kind to me and I would recommend him to anyone. Having 4 implants was so much easier than I thought it would be and I felt no pain at all either during or after the implants. I felt Mr Walsh totally put me at my ease every visit.
I was so happy to be able to see and be treated I such a short time, I had problems on Sunday saw Peter on Monday and Tuesday I have had a new Crown and Bridge fitted within the hour.
My wife and I have been with Birkbeck for some years now. Peter and his team are the best value for money we know of. If you've got a dental problem - bite the bullet ( mind your teeth) and call Beverley.
I had been thinking about having a tooth implant for a number of months, I had read so much about it on the internet and was anxious about going ahead with the procedure. I had a consultation with Peter Walsh who completely put my mind at rest, I cant say how please i am that i did, I would not hesitate in recommending him to anyone who is anxious, and the results are fabulous
For me I wish I had found this earlier on to have this sort of thing done as it is so easy and pain free .It was a friend that recommended this and I thought this implant is what I need to go for and I have never looked back. Even having a tooth out is so easy these days as I did not even realise he had done it.
The treatment which Peter Walsh conducted for me was very extensive. I required three implants and one crown to replace some old crowns and a bridge. Two of the implants required the old roots removing first. Dr Walsh gave a good explanation of what the procedure would consist of and how long it would take. His treatment was virtually pain free, bit of soreness after but that is expected after having teeth removed and implants, but nothing to stop you getting on with your daily life. Practice is very clean and tidy, and the staff are all helpful and you even receive a phone call the next day to make sure everything is alright.
This is a happy and very practical dentistry where nothing is impossible. When I am away and have to look for temporary cover I do not find any other services comparable. A small problem is the telephone reception system which if staff are busy can be a bit of a nightmare but it could be the modern technology system is beyond my comprehension That's all for now but I will not hesitate to bring any other observations to the management 's attention M.
