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.

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.

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.

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.
