Patients just beginning to think about dental implant treatment may find it helpful to attend a complementary preliminary consultation with Dr Sanders.  This appointment does not include a clinical examination and it only takes 20 minutes.  The discussion will help you consider the options for treating your dental problems and decide whether to proceed to a clinical consultation for implants.  The preliminary consultation is free of charge for visitors enquiring through this website.  Please use the form on 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 results in production of a fully-costed individual plan for your treatment.  The fee for the clinical assessment appointment and provision of your personal treatment plan is £98, including a small x-ray.

Courses for dentists

"Following tooth loss my dentist recommended Dr Peter Sanders, if I was to consider implants, referring me to the Dental Confidence Implant Centre.  Placing the implant was swift and simple and it wasn't in the slightest bit painful.  I was amazed - it felt and looked really good - it made such a huge difference.  
I was really pleased I'd chosen Dental Confidence, the practice was great, the staff were accommodating and the after care and advice following the treatment was excellent. Dr Sanders was very professional and took a lot of care to make sure everything was perfect. He made a point of making sure the crown was just right and the colour match was perfect. Now it's impossible to tell which tooth is an implant."

"I was very happy with the implant placement and having it with Dr Sanders also meant that it was done all in one day.  Dr Sanders said it would take him an hour and a half - and it took him an hour and twenty nine minutes!  That was for extraction, implant placement, adding the post and a temporary crown.  I was amazed.  The team at Dental Confidence were lovely, the practice was great and the end results were wonderful.  Both implants are exactly how I wanted them.  I used to have a fear of dentists and injections after having my wisdom teeth removed - but now I don't have that fear."

"Working with Peter has been a real boost, both in profits and in the range of treatments we can now offer. I am now able to think implant when a patient presents with a gap. Patients like to be treated in house whenever possible, and working with Peter allows us to offer this service. I find Peter and his team extremely friendly and professional. Feedback from my patients shows that they are extremely pleased with the treatment they have received." - Nigel Kennedy, Patcham Village Dental Care, Brighton
