Having recently returned to live in Sheffield after 25 years of living in Devon and the US, I approached Porter Brook Dental surgery following a recommendation from my very first childhood dentist.

The practice had been taken over by Gaity and Pallavi. Initially anxious as I have a fear of dental work, I should not have been concerned. The care, gentle manner
andtotalprofessionalismfromthesurgerywas fantastic.

After several visits it was decided I required an implant. This was carried out by Pallavi, who is in my opinion the finest, single minded professional dental specialist I have ever encountered, both in the UK and the US.

She carried out my procedure with care and a skill that made feel completely at ease and confident of success.  Bio Oss & Bio Guide were used to build my cavity before the actual implant was undertaken.

The team at Porter Brook Dental Surgery were extremely good at preparing me for my implant procedure, explaining what to expect along the way, which helped ease my apprehension.

I have always used a hygienist for periodontal treatment
; and continue to do so at Porter Brook.

I have also had my teeth whitened.

In conclusion for someone who did not like visiting the dentist prior to coming to Porter Brook, my fear has now diminished giving me total trust in Gaity and Pallavi’s dental skills.

Porter Brook Dental Surgery have given me the finest care, faultless service; and built my confidence as they truly understand patients needs.

My husband and I have recommended Porter Brook Dental Surgery to friends and will continue to do so.


I received two treatments at Porter Brook Dental Centre, a filling and an extraction of a retained roots of a molar tooth. I was postponing my treatment because I didn't want to go to just any dentist as I expected the extraction of a retained roots to be complicated.

When I decided to go to PBDC, I was already expecting higher standards than in the NHS practice, but I was still positively surprised by the quality of service provided there. I was convinced that tooth extraction cannot be pleasant, but Dr. Gaitonde conducted the procedure with no discomfort felt by me.

There were no complications and I can recommend Porter Brook Dental Centre to anyone who wants their dentistry needs taken care of professionally by a friendly staff and absolutely pain and stress free.





Hear how our patient - Mr. Green received calm and gentle dentistry


I have been a patient at Porter Brook Dental Surgery for a few years now. I chose this surgery specifically because I have a fear of going to the dentist. Their commitment to calm and gentle dentistry keeps me coming back. Just an appointment for a check up at the dentist used to fill me with dread, but I've improved so much since coming here. 

I recently had to have a large filling replaced; the patience, care and understanding I received from Gaity and his team was fantastic. I would definitely recommend this practice without hesitation.
