I became a patient of Dr Ivana Matkovic when I was transferred to her care as a result of an unsuccessful, very painful and incomplete treatment by another dental surgeon, who left the clinic at a short notice.
I was due to have two implants fitted in the lower jaw supporting three front crowns. The implants that were fitted by the first dentist were incorrectly inserted, were crooked and as a result of this my gums were not healing properly.
After months of pain, being unable to eat properly (and smile!) and many unsuccessful attempts to rectify the situation, it was suggested that my case will be transferred to Dr Ivana, who at the time was treating my wife. My wife’s treatment included extractions, six implants, sinus lift and bone grafting. Bearing in mind that my wife was always a nervous dental patient (bordering on dental phobia), it was nothing short of a miracle that she returned home after each procedure, highly praising Dr Ivana’s professional and sympathetic manner and her communication skills throughout the treatment. Thank you Dr Ivana for giving my wife back her smile and her confidence.
Dr Ivana started my treatment by removing the incorrectly inserted implants and reviewing this extremely complicated case. All my fears had disappeared as soon as Dr Ivana took over, and with her unique style of care and expertise, she managed to reassure me that there is still hope that I would be smiling again without the fear of opening my mouth.
Dr Ivana is a very capable dental surgeon who possesses a rare combination of extensive professional knowledge, experience and a much appreciated understanding of patients’ fears and apprehensions.
I would not hesitate to recommend Dr Ivana Matkovic to anyone seeking a reliable, professional, caring and successful dental treatment.
