Find a cosmetic or implant dentist near you
TeethWise, the first cosmetic dental clinic search and comparison website was launched in November 2013. The user-friendly platform allows patients to find clinics in their area and compare them based on cost, qualifications, accreditations and other distinguishing factors. It provides patients with additional peace of mind by carrying out background checks on dentists (GDC and CQC) and providing patient feedback on clinic profiles.
The site was founded by Eoin Holohan as a result of difficulties he experienced finding an affordable dental implant surgeon. Eoin suffered from a developmental anomaly known as hypodontia which resulted in 7 of his adult teeth failing to develop. When he was informed they would need to be replaced with dental implants he visited a specialist and was quoted £20,000 for the surgery. After travelling to Hungary for consultations he discovered the most economical treatment options were actually in the UK and thought about the best way to communicate this to patients.
TeethWise was set up to make it easy for other patients to find affordable dental implant surgeons. After its initial success the site was expanded to help patients searching for all private and cosmetic dental treatments. Based in Google Campus London, the site now has 600 dental clinics listed and helps UK patients by:
- Creating a one stop shop for patients considering cosmetic dentistry
- Making the process of selecting a dentist easier by publishing patient reviews
- Connecting those with limited access to NHS dentists to affordable private dentists
