Plamen was our dentist for about a year during which time, he carried out two major procedures as well as routine check ups. We found him to be an absolute perfectionist and approached his work with dedication, professionalism and great skill.

Had a filling today, I didn't have an injection and I was surprised to feel no pain at all. It was very quick and painfree. Thank you so much for taking care of me.

Becky Goss

Sandra Taylor

A good experience, a very nervous patient was made to feel very relaxed. thank you.

Very impressed with Plamen and the thorough examination. I am a nervous patient and he put me at ease very quickly. Excellent!

First time I've had fillings with no need for an injection for the drilling. Really surprised and very pleased with the new type of drill.

An amazing result! I'm so pleased with the end result. I was made to feel very relaxed throughout the procedure for my inlay. very happy! thank you

Had a filling today without an injection. It was a painfree experience. The dentist & the nurse both took time to explain the procedure in detail. I was so nervous when I came in & genuinely worried about what was to come! I needn't have been it was all good & I've left feeling more relaxed about the whole "dental" thing!

Very happy with filling procedure - no pain & quick

I had a back upper filling with no injection no pain or discomfort, quick & dare I say pleasant experience!

I treat this practice as my emergency private one as I do not live in Eastbourne. I used it three times. It is the only... dentist you can actually find in the world that will do what you need to have done during your first and only visit (fillings, not complicated extractions). No nonsense, no unnecessary antibiotic courses, no silly assessments, no referring you God knows where etc. Very kind and professional. I highly more

Dentist - Mr. Plamen Kozhuharov I cannot imagine that many people want to extol about a visit to the dentist!... However, after spending about 15 years in the wilderness of dentists I discovered Mr. Kozhuharov. I had to have a large molar extracted which I knew would be difficult, and whilst not normally an anxious person at the dentist I was so so nervous. However, I can honestly say that I was made to feel so much calmer within 10 minutes of sitting in the chair due to his professionalism and confident demeanour. Everything was thoroughly explained to me and the extraction was done with ease and I can honestly say I cried with joy! Mr Kozhuharov is the most proficient, calming dentist. I would highly recommend him. The surgery itself is immaculate, clean and smart, as is the dentist himself. I am relieved to know that he has opened this practice. I totally recommend him.
