Being a patient at Harley Street Dental and Implant Clinic is not quite like going to any other dental practice. It is something to do with the heritage, which is discernible as you enter the listed building just around the corner from Wimpole Street, the home of modern dentistry.
But it’s more than that. Many patients at Harley Street Dental and Implant Clinic say they struggled to find a practice where they felt comfortable, often because of a phobia of the dentist inspired by some unpleasant childhood experience.
Generations of patients have told Harley Street Dental and Implant Clinic dentists they neglected their teeth for years, afraid to put themselves in the hands of clinicians they didn’t know and couldn’t trust.
From the 1920s to the digital age these patients entered the reception hall and sat nervously beneath the chandelier waiting for their first appointment after being urged inside by someone they trusted, and who trusted Harley Street Dental and Implant Clinic. Many that day discovered a place where they felt safe and where clinical excellence was suddenly accessible to them because their new dentist could communicate and understand their needs.
That might be why nearly all new patients at Harley Street Dental and Implant Clinic come through personal recommendation, and it has always been that way. There is probably no other dental practice in the world that has cared for four generations of the same families in the same surgeries, and this tradition of stability, longevity and trust runs through the building, its staff and its patients.
