" Claire provided me with care that was second to none. I was always at ease and welcomed by Claire. She has a wonderful way of explaining everything, there were no hidden costs and I now have a smile that I love. "

" To my dentist lady. Thank you very much for helping me with my teeth. When I look in the mirror I will always remember you. I’m not afraid to smile because I’ve got nice white teeth. "

" My children and I have all seen Claire. They not only have (and will have) fantastic teeth but have enjoyed the whole straight forward process too. She, and her team, are all brilliant to deal with. And they are very good at calming nerves. The fact that she is in South Kensington is a massive plus too. "

" When our eldest daughter started sprouting crooked adult teeth, we lost no time in making an appointment with Claire and were not sure what to expect. The surgery is friendly and welcoming from the moment you walk in the door, and any misgivings we had about ‘scary orthodontists’ quickly evaporated. Our daughter took to Claire immediately, and actually managed to share a joke and a smile whilst being fitted for a brace. Claire has a very practical approach, which is especially welcome where children are involved. She avoids taking unnecessary action, preferring with children to see how growing teeth space and position themselves before deciding on whether a brace is the right way to go. I have two younger daughters and will have no hesitation in taking them straight to Claire when the time comes. Our eldest’s beautiful smile is a daily and welcome reminder of a job done well. "

" Dear Dr Nightingale, Thank you so much for Hannah’s wonderful new smile. It seems like a long time ago that we presented you with a mouth that looked like something from a Victorian horror story but, as you promised on that day, we’ve certainly got the “wow” factor and she and we couldn’t be happier. I hope the incredible results you have achieved are as satisfying to you as they are to her. "

" Dear Mrs Nightingale, We wanted to thank you for your superb care for Minal over the past 2/3 years. Minal was truly privileged to have you, a perfectionist, as his orthodontist! The result you have managed to achieve is superb. "
- Minal's Mother -
" Having taken years to finally decide to fix my smile – Claire and her team came highly recommended and rightly so. They are professional, efficient and provide an excellent service. Claire is a perfectionist – she will not rest until your smile is perfect. What more could you ask of an orthodontist? Don’t hesitate. "

" Dear Claire, I just wanted to say thank you for giving me the support and having faith in me when I didn’t believe in myself. I am so pleased with the outcome of treatment, it has definitely been worth the wait. I admire the work that you do, especially your sense of humour (particularly when it comes to me having impressions!!). If I had any other doctor, I fear the outcome may have been very different. When I am discharged, it will be a chapter of my life finally closed, yet I will be sorry because I’ll also feel I will be losing a friend. "

" At 33 I was hesitant to start orthodontic treatment, following my experience of train tracks at the age of 11. However, my past treatment had left me with severe over-crowing in my bottom teeth, which from time to time really ached.
When I talked to Claire about the fact that my teeth bothered me, but I didn’t want to repeat the treatment that I’d had as a child, she explained that there were a number different options available to me and that I needn’t go down the route of having train tracks again. Claire introduced me to Invisalign, which to my delight, nobody noticed I was wearing! Just under 2 years later I have the perfect teeth! When I look at old photos (e.g. those taken on our wedding day), I kick myself that I didn’t look into treatment sooner.
Claire is incredibly knowledgeable but she has a calm and friendly approach and is very good at explaining things simply. There is no clock watching in her consultations, she makes you feel as if you can ask as many questions as you like, however silly they might sound. The treatment itself was also relaxed, administered very professionally with minimal discomfort.
I found all of the staff at the practice relaxed and friendly. They put me at ease and always found time to fit me in when best suited me.
The practice itself is very pleasant. High-tech, impeccably clean and the waiting area stocked with a fantastic choice of magazines!
I would definitely recommend this practice (and frequently do) to anyone who is interested in having treatment. "

" Dear Mrs Nightingale, Thank you for your hard work, skill and dedication shown over the course of my treatment. I looked forward to each visit and felt reassured in your hands. To me you are like a craftsman making my dreams come true. Heartfelt thanks. "

" I had previously had some Orthodontic treatment as a teenager which over time needed correcting. As a professional man I thought it might be rather awkward as train tracks would not have been a great image so I put off doing anything about it. Eventually I got round to seeing Claire who clearly explained all of the options including Invisalign which is the method I chose for my treatment. It was virtually impossible to tell at a conversational distance that I was wearing a dental brace and my clients never guessed. The final result is perfect. My only regret is that I did not see Claire sooner. As well as being a superb Orthodontist, Claire has a fantastic sense of humour and I cannot recommend her more highly. "

" Thank you so much for an amazing presentation last night.
I was in awe of your clinical skills, you must get immense job satisfaction as you truly transform your patients lives for the better. As I mentioned briefly, I only wish my daddy (who was an orthodontist) was there last night in this amazing room seeing such amazing work!! "

" Hi Claire.
Just a note to say what an excellent evening was had by all last night. A tour de force if I may say. Your problem solving, lateral thinking, three dimensional spatial awareness of the geometry and physics of how and where teeth will move to and end up is quite fantastic. "
