Patients just beginning to think about dental implant treatment may find it helpful to attend a free initial consultation with an Implant Coordinator to find out more about the possible treatment options available and associated costs. This appointment does not include a clinical examination and is free of charge for visitors enquiring through this website.  Please use the button in the right hand column to request an appointment.

Once you have decided in principle that you want implant treatment, the next step is a clinical consultation.  This includes a comprehensive oral examination and  x-rays after which you will receive a personalised treatment plan outlining your proposed treatment, timescales and associated costs. The fee for the clinical assessment appointment and provision of your personal treatment plan is �150.00 including X-rays.

Guy is also qualified in both medicine and dentistry and experienced in all types of implant surgery. His particular interest is in the management of failing implant cases, for which he receives referrals from around the UK


'Before and during the treatment I was kept fully informed of all aspects of the procedure and was constantly reassured. The end result is a perfect set of teeth indistinguishable from natural teeth. I cannot imagine that it would be possible to receive a higher level of expertise and care.'

'I have worked with the team at The Implant Centre for three years, I feel more and more excited with the implant cases that I am now confident to treat. I started, as advised, on single cases and I have now completed my first full arch restoration.
My patients come back delighted with the care and attention to detail the team offer. If help is needed they are on hand. Implants have given my patients, myself and my staff a new focus of interest within dentistry.'
Mr Steve Kell, Lewes High Street Dental Practice, East Sussex

'I would have no hesitation in recommending referral to The Implant Centre. It is a valuable service to offer patients and I am very comfortable with the referral process. I welcome the opportunity to continue to provide the final restoration �in surgery�, with all requested support from the implant team.'
