Welcome to Harpenden Smiles Dental Studio located in Harpenden, Hertfordshire. We deliver high quality, bespoke dentistry with the emphasis firmly on you.   

From your very first visit we put you at the forefront of all we do by listening carefully and finding out exactly what you want so we can tailor a treatment plan to fit your unique requirements. Along the way we fully explain every element of the treatment process, including how much it will cost and how long it will take.

We offer all aspects of general and cosmetic dentistry, with no compromise on the quality of our equipment, the standard of techniques or the time we give to you. We also have a team of highly qualified, experienced staff who have undertaken additional training to become experts in more involved treatments such as crowns, implants and root canal work. No matter how complex your case, you will have access to the most advanced dentistry, thanks to our affiliation with Hertfordshire Dental Specialists that is staffed by a team of registered specialists.

Just as we are part of our community (we sponsor local rugby and hockey clubs), we want all our patients to feel part of our friendly practice, including nervous patients who we greet with a comforting smile as they walk into our homely waiting room. We further ease their anxieties by using the Magic Wand to deliver local anaesthetic and can provide IV sedation if required. We also welcome children and would love to see them from as early an age as possible so they can get used to the relaxing Harpenden Smiles experience and we can set them on the path to lifelong oral health.

Hi I don’t use social media, however Michael did a fantastic job. He is very professional – fixed a tricky root canal and made an amazing Crown. He takes great care, doesn’t rush and clearly wants to do great work, which he did, What made the experience easier for me is Michael has great conversation.
