About The Implant Experts

Our state-of-the-art Implant Centre is unlike any dental practice you will ever have visited. Purpose designed, it combines a superb clinical environment for our medical professionals, with welcoming and reassuring surroundings for our patients.

We have transformed the interior of a beautiful Georgian building whilst retaining many of it most attractive features like the grand staircase, the high ceilings and the tall windows which flood the rooms with natural light. The entry and reception areas look more like the lounge of a boutique hotel than a dental surgery, and the bright, cheerful appearance is enhanced by the vibrant paintings of a local artist.

Included in the redesign are no less than three surgeries which are all equipped to the very highest standards and include the latest dental technology available.   A CT 3D scanning room and a dentist training facility complete the medical facilities.

Caring, friendly and committed to your welfare our experienced staff are dedicated to providing you with the highest quality of professional care.

Our promise

  • We will take account of your own wishes.
  • We will provide personal care that is unique to you as an individual.
  • We will explain your options and their costs, so that you can make an informed choice.
  • We will always explain what we are doing.
  • We will do all we can to look after your general well-being.
  • We will ask you about your general health, and about any medicines being taken. This helps us to treat you safely.
  • We will keep all information about you confidential.
  • We will screen you for mouth cancer at routine checkups.

"The whole experience was professionally organised in a friendly and reassuring way"
90%Reviewed 09 Apr 2018 Review verified by phone.
Treatment Received: Dental Implants
I am very pleased with my front tooth implant. It is money very well spent, as the tooth is just like my own and I can eat normally. The procedure requires commitment as the appointments are over several months. Also, if you are happy with an NHS denture that comes out when you eat or moves around and you would prefer to spend the money on a holiday then perhaps this option isn't for you. However, for me, as a 70-year-old Grandmother, I found the treatment painless. If a little uncomfortable for the one appointment that took an hour when the implant was fitted.

Everything is fully explained, I am glad I just went ahead and did it. Apart from being able to eat normally, I also look like my old self.

I chose this clinic from professional recommendation as being the clinic and dentist who taught other practices how to do this procedure. The whole experience was professionally organised in a friendly and reassuring way. I would not hesitate in recommending this clinic.

Treatment Received: Dental Implants, Single Implant
I had a tooth extracted and a bridge fitted by another dental practice, this fell off on a weekly basis. I was really lacking confidence in the whole process. I really can’t recommend Sinead Allis and the rest of the team enough. I was clearly in safe hands. I sailed through the process of having a replacement crown (which has never budged) and implant with no complications and are very very happy with the results.

They are all experts in their chosen fields. Everyone is polite and friendly, the whole atmosphere is calming and professional.

"Thank you, for helping me overcoming my fear of dentistry and doing such an excellent job"
100%Reviewed 16 Feb 2018 Review verified by email.
Treatment Received: Extractions, Sedation for dental treatments
I only had a simple extraction with oral sedation, being a nervous patient. The whole atmosphere of the clinic was calm and relaxing. Sinead and her team were brilliant, so caring, efficient, professional and thorough. Thank you, for helping me overcoming my fear of dentistry and doing such an excellent job. Reasonable price and worth every penny. My husband is thinking of having implants and I would recommend the clinic wholeheartedly.

I was referred by my own dentist, the receptionist rang me the next day and offered me an immediate appointment. Lovely waiting room, beautiful building, spotlessly clean. All the staff was polite and professional.

"I am so impressed with the dental surgeon, she was brilliant"
100%Reviewed 18 Nov 2016 We were unable to verify the reviewer.
Treatment Received: Dental Implants
Having moved house I moved dentist and she was unhappy with a four molar implant and bridge that I had. It wasn't very old but had been less than well fitted and could cause serious problems. Evidently the work in the bone was still good but the bridge did not fit. I was referred to The Implant Experts who first clearly explained what was wrong, why something should be done and then with immense care and attention supervised the fabrication of a new bridge. It was a tricky one to get right and to fit. I was very impressed with the attention to detail and determination to get it really right. It has just been fitted and it feels completely right. In a mirror you would never know they weren't mine. I am so impressed with the dental surgeon, she was brilliant.
The clinic is spacious, well appointed, has parking space and once I discovered where I was supposed to park I managed to maneuver. The reception staff and nurses were all excellent, friendly and helpful.

"The whole Dental Implants process was explained and pain free"
100%Reviewed 06 Sep 2016 Review verified by phone and email.
Treatment Received: Dental Implants
When professionals are forward thinking and determined to deliver an excellent service, great things can happen. I have recently been referred to the Implant Centre by my very patient and long suffering dentist Mr Underhill after the root under an existing crown deteriorated to the point where a replacement crown was not a viable option.. Together with Sinead Allis, they have supported me through the implant process with utmost care and attention. The whole process was explained and pain free, yes honestly! I did not need to even take the prescribed pain killers.I would not hesitate to recommend the clinic to anyone. In terms of value? Hmmm, tricky.Of course it is expensive, but it is difficult to put a price on your health. I guess the price is relative to an individuals circumstances.

This clinic was recommended by my dentist, in whom I have a lot of trust.Everyone is so friendly and helpful, from Gemma at the front desk to Sinead and her nurses. Nothing is too much trouble.

"I now have a lovely mouth of teeth since my Dental Implant was placed!"
80%Reviewed 02 Sep 2016 Review verified by phone and email.
Treatment Received: Dental Implants, Extractions
I had an implant on one tooth where I had an old crown. The work necessitated removal of both the old crown and the old tooth. Not a pleasant experience but it was really worth it and I now have a lovely mouth of teeth! I would recommend the treatment to a friend.

I chose the clinic in Ahford Rd Maidstone as the brochure was very helpful in explaining the procedures. My experience was first class treatment and the dentist was most helpful during the initial assessment si I knew what to expect and the costs involved. I received first class treatment

"I’m so pleased"
100%Reviewed 27 May 2016 We were unable to verify the reviewer.
Treatment Received: Bone Graft, Sinus Lift, Implant Bridge
Bone Graft, Sinus Lift and Implant Bridge

I grew up in the times when there were school dentists. You know the ones that said “put your hand up if it hurts” no anaesthetics. So I have always been scared of the dentist. About three years ago I got the most incredible toothache. I had several abscesses and needed to see the dentist. Unfortunately I had to have most of my teeth taken out due to gum disease. My top set being the worst affected. What was left was unstable and at risk.
Working in care with the elderly there was no way I could have dentures, but only being 47 I wasn’t prepared to be gummy. It broke my heart and my confidence and the job I do at present requires me to have a lot of effective communication with the public.
My dentist suggested having my 6 remaining top teeth removed and a 4 implant bridge, bone graft and sinus lift, to give me a whole top set of teeth. It sounded great but I was so scared not only about the treatment but the costs. I did shop around and was shocked at how costly this procedure is and how many hidden extras there can be. It took me 3 months to make the decision and two more abscesses to say “yes it’s time to go ahead with the referral!”
On the day of surgery I was surprisingly calm. I even drove the 2 hour drive to Kent. I was greeted by the team who I felt I knew well by then. The four hour surgery went quickly and was completely pain free. I even fell asleep at one point. That night I went out and enjoyed a light meal. The hotel room was great – If I could I would have slipped the bed in my bag, it was so comfortable I slept really well.
The swelling came two days later and was gone two days after that. I did take pain relief regularly for a week to 9 days. I’m so pleased I had this done and there was no hidden extras or unpleasant surprises. Now I can smile all the time.
I first met the team at the implant experts in March. Straight away I felt comfortable, the whole team is so friendly and approachable. I spent several hours going over everything. I also had time to go out for a walk and talk about it with my man. This helped as we had time to think of questions we wanted answers to from the morning’s conversation.
All my concerns, an overnight stay, finances, dates and times of surgery were sorted out before I left that day. I felt so excited and it was all happening in May. I was reassured that should I need anything before this date I could phone, email and talk to any member of the team at any time.

"As soon as I walked in through the door I knew I was in the right place"
100%Reviewed 06 May 2016 Review verified by phone and email.
Treatment Received: Dental Implants
Everything about my treatment with Dr Sinead Allis exceeded my expectations. She explained the implant procedure clearly and completed it very professionally. I was a little anxious about the treatment but that was soon dispelled. Dr Sinead's calm and confident manner soon putting me at ease.

This clinic was recommended to me by my own dentist. As soon as I walked in through the door I knew I was in the right place to have my treatment. Great atmosphere along with comfortable waiting area and calming video system. Reception staff were extremely polite and helpful.

"First class dental treatment"
100%Reviewed 01 May 2016 Review verified by phone.
Treatment Received: Dental Implants
I had to have an implant having lost my front tooth following a clash of heads with my dog! The treatment from start to finish has been well explained (so I knew exactly what was happening) and, I'm glad to say, absolutely painless.
It's true what they say, you get what you pay for. It isn't the cheapest treatment but it is definitely worth it.

The experience from the first consultation to the final treatment was first class. Everyone involved with the clinic was extremely professional and friendly. The treatment was completed by Sinead and she even called me in the evening following my first treatment to check everything was okay.
I would definitely recommend The Implant Experts to anyone requiring this or similar treatment. They make going to the dentist a pleasure!
