Root canal without tears
★★★★★
Some weeks after having a crown fitted, I developed a nasty painful infection underneath it. Following successful treatment with antibiotics I was referred to Dr Ray Bellamy for root canal treatment. I spent nearly two and a half hours in the chair and didn't feel a thing -not even the injection! The next day there was no soreness or stiffness at all. Some four months later,the tooth is working perfectly. This was a first class job done by a highly skilled professional.rnI Registered with the practice in 2007 at the age of 65 and thanks to the excellent work of the whole team most of my teeth have been saved.Money well spent!”
- David Morgan
EXTREMELY IMPRESSED
★★★★★
I’m very impressed by this practice and very grateful to Dr Philip Pettermerides who has arrived half an hour earlier to fit the appointment in his busy schedule. I had a problem with a crown on implant which was placed years ago in other country and I have found this practice just by chance searching for the dentists working with Nobel implants. My options were very well explained to me before and during the treatment. The old crown was fixed back at the first appointment. As a person, who had to visit the dentists in four different countries on regular basis, I can say that level of professionalism and expertise is extremely high at this dental care. I have an impression that all people at this practice love their job (starting with the kind receptionist Carol) and really care for their patients and I would strongly recommend it to my friends.Thank you so much to the whole team.”
- Tatyana A
such a warm and caring reception
★★★★★
I have had more than one implant here and can say the treatment is amazing: without discomfort, with consideration (being told every step of the procedure) and with a very high level of competence, expertise and experience. Also, that step beyond - listening to and answering any queries, plus being so friendly and approachable. Also the excellent aftercare.rn Thank you”

Excellent treatment and result
★★★★★
I have recently had a front tooth crown fitted and it is excellent. It blends beautifully with my own teeth and I am now smiling with confidence. My dental treatment by Philip was excellent - kind, thoughtful and, above all, efficient. I cannot recommend him (and his team) highly enough.”

Appearance does matter!
★★★★★
Having a tooth implant was a daunting prospect but I'm so glad I took the plunge. I cannot fault the care and attention received and the aftercare has also been excellent. I am truly delighted with my new tooth and can smile again with confidence. It has been worth every penny! ”

I had my lingual brace removed yesterday! I'm very pleased with the results. The treatment along the way, with Eva, was excellent: professional; clearly explained; always delivered with a smile. rnI came back to Edgar Buildings, having had a dental implant, because the treatment was so good. I am pleased that I did.”

Root canal work
★★★★★
I have recently had two sessions of root canal work completed by Ray Bellamy. He was excellent and I have never before felt I was in such competent and thorough hands when undergoing such work. Everything was well explained and there was negligible pain during or after the procedure.”

ThankYou !
★★★★★
When I first arrived at Edgar Buildings, my mouth was a complete mess. Many years of NHS drilling and filling and re-filling and extractions had left me with a pretty constant level of discomfort, and I was beginning to find myself automatically choosing soft foods on menus and losing my pleasure in foreign travel as I suffered toothache and lost fillings wherever I went… Deciding that I needed to take proactive action to regain my quality of life, I asked friends and family for advice – and was delighted to discover my saviours in Drs Philip Pettemerides and Raphael Bellamy (not forgetting their lovely staff). My initial discussions with them were both realistic and encouraging. Over the past seven months, as we have worked through my pre-agreed treatment plan, I have been increasingly impressed by their level of dedication and professionalism. Several potentially doomed teeth have been saved following many hours of patient attention. Fillings and crowns have been replaced. Implants are planned. Throughout the process, everything has been discussed and explained fully to me at every stage. Although I still have some way to go, it would be no exaggeration to say that my life has already improved on all levels. I am now able to eat what I want; my teeth no longer hurt – and I am already planning my next travels…I would unreservedly recommend this practice to anyone. ”

What superb treatment
★★★★★
This is the second time I have used Edgar Buildings Dental Care; both for Root Canal Treatment. I consider myself very fortunate to have been treated by Ray Bellamy on both occasions. He is obviously an expert in his field and a perfectionist. That'll do is just not in his vocabulary. It took several visits to complete the treatment to his satisfaction, but he is a very determined man and was not happy until it was completed properly. He is very thorough and puts you at ease by explaining everything that he is doing. I even nodded off during the treatment (this from a man who is petrified of dentists) If I ever need Root Canal treatment again, there is only one man I will allow to do it.”

Root Canal TreatmentCrown
★★★★★
Fortunately, I have been a patient at this practice for many years and have always experienced the best of care. This was especially so following a riding accident many years ago, which caused tremendous damage to my jaw and teeth. Dr. Philip Pettemerides has always offered and given the most professional of care and expertise, as indeed on my latest visit. Dr Ray bellamy has just completed root canal treatment with the usual diligance and care that I so appreciate from this practice. Perhaps more importantly, I had no requirement for either pain relief or antibiotics because of treatment well done. My thanks again!”

From my first phone call onwards I have been very impressed with the care I have been given. All costs are discussed before treatment starts so there are no nasty surprises. During treatment every step has been explained and the treatment was painless. Follow up is excellent your endodontist will call you within 48 hours to check that all is well. Would definitely return to this practice.”

Root Canal Treatment AND Implants
★★★★★
I have been attending the clinic for the last two years. So much so I would joke with the receptionists that I should have a permanent seat in the waiting room. I had reached a point where I had to change my old bridges and the option offered by the NHS was that of dental plates. I decided otherwise. My treatment at Edgar Buildings included implants and two root canal treatments - the latter coming into the equation when my NHS dentist informed me that nothing could be done with the two offending molars, short of an extraction. Both Gillian Boswell and Ray Bellamy proved her wrong. I can only admire their professional expertise and care. Philip Pettemerides, who inserted the implants has been both caring, patient and extremely professional in his approach. My heartfelt thanks goes to three very efficient, professional and caring dental surgeons. I have even changed allegiance and have had my first appointment with Kathryn Wingfield, the hygienist and have not been disappointed. I cannot fault anyone - charming and courteous receptionists, efficient, calm and kind dental nurses and of course the wonderfully professional specialists themselves. ”

Root canal treatment - excellent treatment and care
★★★★★
I received excellent help and treatment right from when I had booked my appointment. The reception and dental staff were very helpful in answering the questions I had before my first appointment. The dental treatment I received was of extremely high quality and all procedures were explained to me before commencement: how long each procedure would take, what was going to happen, etc. At all times my well-being was taken into consideration and the dentist did his utmost to ensure that I felt no pain (and there was no pain!). I was extrememly impressed with the whole experience and would thoroughly recommend root canal treatment, or indeed any dental treatment, at this practice.”

Mr Bellamy was very sympathetic to my somewhat nervous disposition when faced with mouth injections. The procedure was explained very clearly and carried out with great care and skill. The follow up appointment was much less daunting and the personal call after each appointment was much appreciated. Mary Flitton”

Root canal treatment
★★★★★
I have so far had two treatments to clean out the root canals in two molars-one upper and one lower. The lower one was to replace a previous canal filling which had not been done well approximately four years ago,and has subsequently failed leaving an area of bone loss beneath the tooth,and ulceration on the gum. So far the upper tooth has been completed and the lower tooth has its temporary filing in place allowing time for the bacteria to be destroyed. I have not experienced any pain at all throughout the entire process-and even fell asleep briefly last time!! That has to be a first in my lengthy dental experiences! I cannot speak highly enough of Dr Ray Bellamy and would recommend him to anyone requiring root canal work. He is worth every penny!”
- Jill Lawson
Dental Implants
★★★★★
For years I had coped with a denture, which is better than nothing. A long time ago I had investigated the possibility of dental implants, but I did not have enough bone in my jaw for it to be viable. Philip Pettemerides was recommended to me by two independent friends as an excellent dentist, a year or so on I completely agree. I have had two successfull implants, and whilst expensive, the difference in my life is wonderful. The whole experience was very positive with minimum discomfort, and all the staff seemed of the highest calibre. I am very grateful, and it is fantistic to be denture free!”

Multiple Root Canal Treatment
★★★★☆
I attended two appointments on 31 January and 7 February. The first one for two hours and the second one for one hour 15 minutes. These were both within the planned time frame. The treatment was well explained to me by Dr Ray Bellamy, who did it. He first X-rayed the tooth to ascertain the extent of the treatment required and then showed me the result of the X-ray and explained clearly what he was going to do, so that I could appreciate what was going on. Next came the injections. I was surprised that these seemed to be taking much longer than I had anticipated, but Ray reassured me that administering it slowly would ultimately be less painful. The procedure of cleaning out the root canal was fine; no pain at all and good communication from Ray all the way through with a designated 'close position' and rest intervals from the wide open position. This was not the first time for me to have RCT so I had a good idea of the progress taking place anyway. Irncould picture the three canals as Ray had already shown me on the X-ray. He communicated well with specific information to the dental nurse who was very thorough and it seemed like he was training her. I did not feel any pain during the procedure itself, only later during my 2 hour dark, wet drive back to Weymouth. That evening after showering, I noticed a shadow on the side of my face. The following day a bruise emerged. Ray phoned to see how I was and I told him about it. He apologised and explained that during the injection a blood vessel could have been severed. I was not cross with him; my veins are very near the surface and annoyingly, I bruise very easily, though I have never had this before at the dentist. He must have had to work at a very awkward angle to access one of the distal canals. I felt that he was doing the job well and was extremely thorough and well experienced. The second visit was to finish the job and seal the canals. This all went well and I had no pain whatsoever either during the treatment or afterwards. I noticed that the lens through which he was having to work was a bit dusty, but everything else was clean and fresh. This time he was helped by a different dental nurse, who again seemed to be having training. Being a teacher myself, I did not mind this at all on either occasion. I was a bit taken aback by the fact the Ray did not know about the trauma I had had to my mouth on a crowded Tokyo station, while working in Japan 1987-1991. But he did have access to my records. Although the treatment was expensive for me, I am glad that I belong to BUPA Dental so that I will be able to get a significant reimbursement. Overall, my experience was a positive one and I would have no hesitation in recommending Ray Bellamy to any one else needing RCT. In fact, I already have done. Thank you Ray.”

Level of Service and Satisfaction
★★★★★
I've always been phobic about dentistry, but from Reception to treatment this has been a comfortable, supportive and above all pain-free experience. I have nothing but praise for my own dentist, Sally Davies and the Endodontics specialist Ray Bellamy, and their assistants. The standard of treatment is brilliant, accompanied by a level of information and care that has left me with a feeling of confidence and security that has made a huge difference to my perception and experience of having dental work carried out. Thank you to all the team at Edgar Buildings, Bath (and especially Ray and Sally).”

Back from the dead
★★★★★
My NHS dentist has provided competent and proficient care for my teeth over many years. However, two large molars recently reached the point where all that was on offer was extraction - or a referral to expert care. Ray Bellamy was that expert and I now have two wonderfully-serviceable teeth ready for crowning - veritably 'back from the dead', as he promised.”
