Having received awards for its dedication to patient care, standard of dentistry and use of technology, Dental Confidence is now recognised as the number one choice for dental implants

We talk to lead implantologist, Dr. Peter Sanders to find out what his secret is…

If you are considering dental implants, you would be hard pushed to find a dental practice with a better reputation than Dental Confidence. Based in Southampton,

the practice has been designed and furnished to reflect the high standards of dentistry excellence and patient care the implant centre aims for.

By creating a comfortable, relaxing environment, using state of the art technology and providing first class customer service, Dental Confidence makes sure every patient’s individual journey comes as close to perfection as possible.

Award winning service

Over the last year Dental Confidence’s success has been demonstrated through both the dentistry and business awards it has attained. Lead Implantologist and

Clinical Director, Dr Peter Sanders explains, “Winning ‘Best Practice in the South East’ at the Dentistry awards was a great achievement for us and we were

equally delighted to have been selected as the winner for the South Coast Business Award for ‘Best use of Technology’. At Dental Confidence, we have always strived to provide an unrivalled level of patient care and satisfaction – and throughout 2013 this was clearly recognised.”

“Our success has been down to the effort we have put into our customer service, community engagement, research, excellence in dentistry, interior design and the quality of environment we offer,” adds Dr Sanders.

In addition, the practice was also shortlisted as a runner up for ‘best patient care’ and ‘best implant practice’ at the national Private Dentistry Awards.

Technological innovation

Aside from its focus on patient satisfaction, Dental Confidence is also renowned for its dedication to technology. Last year Dr Sanders became the first dentist in the UK to use the ground breaking technique known as intraoral welding, which improves the accuracy of implant restorations. Dr Sanders is one of only a handful of implantologists in the world to have received the specialist training to use this technique. The first patient to receive the treatment in the UK was Mr Dave Dougan, who said, “The surgery was entirely pain free and the implants are perfectly comfortable. I was able to have full extraction and implant placement in a single day, and I must say I was astonished at how quickly I could get on with things – I was eating food the following day.”

Dr Peter Sanders continues to train in all areas of implantology and regularly attends conferences and training events across the globe.

Last year he was also appointed as the Cohort Lead for Faculty of General Dental Practice (UK) Royal College of Surgeons – where he once studied himself – and is now responsible for the structure, content and delivery of the Implant Diploma programme.

“Implants really are the ideal solution to tooth loss and more and more people are really beginning to understand this,” says Dr Sanders, “The success of our practice is largely down to the whole team’s determination to maintain a superior standard of service, to our dedication to technology and the overall excellence in implant dentistry we always strive for.”
