I am confident

5 50 Dentist Consultation, Dentist Consultation

I went for a dentist consultation at this clinic and the whole thing was amazing and I'll be having the procedure within just a few months but that they will do an amazing job.

The clinic was very neat and hygienic, The doctor was very good and treated me with great respect. They told me what would happen and how the procedure will go and the recovery too. They are reasonable with pricing, they charge exactly as they quoted no surprises at all.

I can't recommend this practice enough

4.9 50 Dental Implants, Dental Crowns • Paid: £1500

Previously 2 implants and today 2 crowns

I had two very painless implants 3 years ago. Today I had two temporary crowns put in. Dr Murgai was as always kind and explained everything. I have had a lot of dental work over the years and I am nervous of visiting the dentist. I can't recommend this practice enough. Don't go abroad for implants, you won't save money in the long run. Pay the money. It's local, clean and I have always had a good experience.

Highly recommend

5 50 Dental Implants • Paid: £8

Full implants

After visiting so many clinics for consultations for full implants, including the possibility of flying to Budapest to have all the work done (which they wanted cash), don't advise this! Visiting 2 Harley St clinics, Whippendell Dental Clinic was local and by far the most honest and realistic advise I had had! Dr Murgai was very reassuring and accommodating , I had work over 6 months every evening after my treatment I had a call to check how I was, the sessions were not rushed and overall am very happy , now my wife has decided to have some implants done as she saw how well the whole treatment went, thanks I will highly recommend the clinic for any dental procedures.

Reassuring and positive

4.8 50 Fillings • Paid: £1700

Having had bad experiences in the past with dentists, I decided to attend this clinic based on the reviews I had read. Still feeling negative about dentists, I attended my initial consultation. The dentist was very reassuring and positive which was a good sign for me as every other dentist I had seen would make me feel like I had the worst teeth in the history of teeth!!
The treatment went well and the Dentist kept me informed of the treatment every step of the way. Another good point also is they did not make me feel like a pest when I would phone them if I had a problem, a question or needed reassurance. The staff are great and made me feel very welcome and I felt like an individual, not just an entry in the appointment diary. I have finally found a dentist I can trust and feel comfortable with!
