It is very rare that you meet someone and instantly feel that you are putting your health into the safest of hands.

I had been suffering with facial pain for a couple of years and was diagnosed as having TMJD by my dentist. The issue recently worsened to the extent that I was unable to work on a full-time basis, a job that requires me to speak for up to 8 hours a day. Frustratingly, nobody seemed able to provide me with a solution to the problem, until I met Mr Cascarini, who could see straight away from an MRI scan that I required a bilateral TMJ arthroscopy. At the same time, Mr Cascarini removed a potentially problematic wisdom tooth that other dental surgeons were reluctant to take out due to its proximity to a nerve. Having a wisdom tooth taken out by an inexperienced surgeon is simply not worth the risk given the long term damage that can result if approached incorrectly. In my case, Mr Cascarini did an excellent job and I am recovering very quickly. Although I have only recently had the procedure, I can already feel the TMJ pain that has been bothering me for over five months has disappeared.

I would equally like to show my appreciation to Carla Woodcock, Mr Cascarini’s PA, who has been incredibly efficient and thoughtful throughout the whole process. You actually know that when you are told something is being dealt with, it truly is! To have both a consultant and a PA who work to such a high standard is incredibly rare.

When it comes to any health issue, particularly those that relate to the face, risks simply aren’t worth taking and it is for that reason that I would recommend anyone to see Mr Cascarini.

I actually consider myself very fortunate to have a health issue that falls within Mr Cascarini’s areas of expertise. He is both patient and attentive and immediately puts you at ease. At no time do you feel rushed by Mr Cascarini.

People use the term “brilliant” all too often, but in this case, this is exactly what Mr Cascarini is. What makes him even more wonderful is his incredible modesty.
