We recently moved back to the UK from Canada, where our 12 year old son had a negative experience whilst undergoing routine dental treatment.
Since this experience and whenever we have tried to book an appointment, he becomes nervous and has an anxiety attack.
We then discovered Yasmin, and mentioned our son's experience and our concern to her and after assessing him, she decided to begin Orthodontic treatment. Over several visits, Yasmin's sympathetic patience and sheer dedication built a relationship of trust between her and our son. Her calm, friendly yet firm approach gave our son the confidence he needed and when he required two extractions, she used the wand as a local anaesthetic and he didn't even realise that his teeth were already out!
We are very grateful to Yasmin for all her support, especially in making our son overcome his fear of visiting the clinic over such a short period of time.
Recently, our son's brace wire somehow popped out of place and as soon as Yasmin was informed, she arranged an immediate appointment for him to go see her and we were grateful for her recommendations.
At every visit she has taken her time to explain to our son of all the stages involved and only moves on to the next stage once she is assured that he is happy and comfortable with it. Her assisting staff have always been conscientious and friendly.
We would highly recommend Yasmin for her specialist work and for the fact that she uses the latest technology available. We wish we had known about her sooner!
Should you wish to contact us regarding our experience with her, please obtain our contact details from her and we would be happy to chat.
Thank you Yasmin for making this a turning point for our son and also a memorable and comfortable journey for him.
Wanted to reach out to any families that are looking for an Orthodontist recommendation. We have recently moved back to the states and were in mid-treatment with Dr Yasmin George.
She has gone above and beyond communicating with our new Orthodontist, to make sure we stayed on track. Our new Orthodontist has commented on what great treatment both of my girls were given by Dr George!! If you have any questions, feel free to reach out to me.

Matthew and I would like to personally thank you for firstly persuading us to come to you for treatment to Matthew's teeth and for being so patient with us throughout his treatment. We are all delighted with the final outcome and Matthew in particular loves his new look. As you know I was very undecided at the outset, as I was getting conflicting comments on how best to proceed. However we are so pleased that you convinced us that your plan of work was the best solution and have already recommended your name to friends of ours.
Hilary and Matthew (Orthodontics)
I love my new smile, thank you Yasmin.
LS (Smile Makeover)
Dr George was all we could ask for. Her dedication to perfection resulted in incredible results. I also appreciated her honesty and persistence when my son fell short on his responsibilities in keeping his teeth and gums brushed properly. I would highly recommend Dr George.
RB (re his son's orthodontic treatment)
It has been my sincere pleasure to meet with Dr. George. I would recommend her without exception. Her patient orthodontic treatment and records are exemplary. She exhibits a superior knowledge of growth and development combined with early orthodontic treatment. She is extremely knowledgeable in all phases of dentistry. In my opinion she is one of the finest dentists in London. She is and will continue to be a premier dentist.
Donald F. Bozic, Pediatric Dentist Carmel, Indiana USA
Dear Yasmin, the service that we have received from you has been both very professional and has given our son the confidence to be able to smile without being conscious of crooked teeth. You afforded us the time to examine Matthew's teeth thoroughly, to give a full assessment of the work that needed to be undertaken,the timespan involved, time to think about the proposed treatment plan and an opportunity to answer any concerns we might have had without feeling pressurised.
Thank you for Matthew's new look and I will recommend your services highly to anyone seeking professional and good dentistry.
Dr George was very thorough from start to finish for my front tooth implant procedures and crowns. I am very pleased with the final outcome! Dr George followed up with a personal phone call to check everything was ok the day after my implant surgery.
SG (implants and crowns)
We appreciated Dr. George's honesty in explaining how our previous course of treatment was changing our daughter's profile and face shape. She looked at past photos, used technology, and asked many questions. The end result in a short period of time is absolutely stunning. We are very happy.
Very thorough assessment and treatment plan. She also picked up on some other issues and referred us to a specialist to have treatment which was very beneficial in the long run. It was a hard road for my 16 year old teenager but it was worth it in the end and both my daughter and myself are VERY satisfied with the results.
I was very self¬-conscious of my teeth. Dr. George did an excellent job of sympathising with my position and helped define exactly what my options were to make me more comfortable with my smile.
KG (cosmetic dentistry, veneers)
I was quite nervous about my experience but I felt right from the start that I was given great advice and complete honesty to help me decide which way to go with the treatment. The treatment and post treatment went really well and I was so pleased with the service and the end result.
KH (cosmetic dentistry)
I was very pleased with the work Dr George did for my daughter.
Yasmin and the team have been fantastic throughout the whole process; from my initial consultation to the day 18 months later when my braces finally came off! Although not especially wary of dentists, I was anxious about the possible pain and uncomfortableness of the treatment I would be having, but Yasmin and all the team were incredibly supportive and understanding at every stage. Yasmin explained everything we would be doing at every step, and was more than happy to answer any questions or concerns I had, which was excellent. I've now finished my treatment and the results have been incredible! I've had so many compliments about my straighter, whiter teeth, and the difference the realignment of my lower jaw has made to my profile has been amazing! I am thrilled with the results and wouldn't hesitate in recommending Dr George to anyone.
Dr George was excellent from start to finish. very professional and friendly and even made going to the dentist enjoyable!
ML (orthodontics and teeth whitening)
I am very happy with my new smile, I think the team led by Yasmin did a great job.
Her teeth were a bit of a mess prior to treatment! But now look great. Yasmin was very helpful and patient, explaining all the options possible. The work was carried out quickly and very well. Yasmin's calm and helpful manner has certainly helped cure my daughter's phobia.
MC re his daughter (nervous patient)
I was given a strong personal recommendation to see Yasmin George. For more years than I will admit I have suffered severe dental health problems. Unable to cope with phobia (despite many attempts,) I suffered bouts of infection, chronic pain, and worry over health, particularly when travelling. This had begun to seriously affect my life. The introduction to Yasmin has been a significant turning point, and I hope this testimonial will provide the same for others who, like me, have severe dental phobia. Previously, I could not pass a dental surgery without crossing the road, speak with anyone about dentistry, or even in my professional healthcare-related life feel comfortable in the company of a dentist.
Yasmin has an exceptional approach, a complete sincerity and understanding of my fears, and an enthusiasm to restore my dental health. My reluctance to even be assessed (an otherwise meticulous person, I was very ashamed of my own neglect) was carefully and sensitively managed, and the utter relief of putting myself in Yasmin's expert care was overwhelming. I now feel that Yasmin is a friend who is sharing and steering my journey to achieving good health and who will absolutely ensure I get there.
I have chosen to take intravenous sedation for the work. This is superb, there is simply nothing to fear. The effect is of sleeping and waking up not knowing a thing other than that you are in better health.
I am now well on the road to achieving dental health, I know I can continue this programme, and am looking forward to enjoying the benefits it will bring. Already there has been a very significant positive impact on quality of life and health. There is no looking back!
My thanks go to Yasmin George for her ability to encourage me to take this huge step, where all others have failed, and for meticulously choosing the right team to care for me.
TS (nervous patient)
Thank you for your quite outstanding care and professionalism. I appreciated the phased treatment plan I received, together with estimated costs, which I found most helpful. When it came to the actual treatment, everything was done to make me, the patient, feel valued and cared for. Nothing was ever rushed, I was informed at every stage of the work and involved in the decisions you took. I am delighted with the results and am only sorry I discovered you so late in my life!
MH (crowns and bridges)
Dr. George went to great lengths to explain the processes and desired end result and I have to say that I had complete confidence in her direction and advice at all times.
Yasmin was recommended to me by a General Osteopath that was treating my son to relieve migraines caused by a growth problem with his upper jaw.
Yasmin has done a wonderful job of not only giving Edward a lovely smile but by going the extra mile in ensuring that the issue with his upper jaw was also addressed.
I would not hesitate to recommend Yasmin and her lovely team to anyone.
Yasmin and her team have excelled all our expectations at every stage of the treatment that our son received. It was obvious that our son would require braces in order to correct overcrowding in his mouth, but the various options being proposed to us by other orthodontists seemed rather drastic. An initial consultation with Yasmin resulted in a course of action being outlined in writing and a timescale for the course of treatment. We have been extremely impressed with the level of professionalism at all times and the care and attention paid at each stage of the treatment, Yasmin has always taken the time to see us if one of the brackets has come off and phone calls have always been returned promptly. We would recommend Yasmin very highly and thank her and her team for all the care and attention they have given to our son

We were very happy with the whole experience from start to finish. I felt that the treatment has been performed at a very high level and consistent with the plan that had been given in the States. Accommodating the kids school schedules and ever changing circumstance while arranging appointments is especially appreciated!. Thank you Dr George and staff and we will see soon with our other son!
Yasmin, thank you for all your help and advice regarding the boys it's been invaluable. You have transformed Guy's teeth from our family's hereditary overbite into perfect looking natural teeth. This has given Guy much confidence and has helped with his self-esteem.
JH (child orthodontics)
The reason for my dental phobia goes right back to me as a 3 year old! Believe it or not, I still remember the most awful experience of being held down by nurses, crying and struggling against a huge black rubber mask! Of course following that, I can only remember being frightened and not really remembering any kindness or understanding - the fear just grew over the years. I got round it by seeing dentists who offered IV drugs, I suppose similar to the sedation I receive now, but I am sure it was a deeper anaesthetic and probably against the law!
My overfilled teeth started to crack and the fear of not going to the dentist was as great at the fear of going! I found a practice in North Cheam who offered sedation for nervous patients, I attended the first time because I had broken a tooth and he just patched it with cement, that was in 2007. My last check up was October 2007 and I was told I needed two crowns. By this time the dentist who provided sedation had left the practice and I was to be referred on, I didn't hear any more.
Then I broke another tooth, I became so anxious and worried I would get toothache and not be able to get it treated. In the end the fear of not going to the dentist must have become greater, so I Google'd 'sedation dentist in Surrey' - and here we are!
From the very first phone conversation with Sue to the initial check up with Yasmin, then right through the treatment with Joe taking care of me, I can honestly say the experience got better! I don't even get anxious any more. I can't say I have overcome my phobia - I get round it, with sedation. Can I say that 5 hours in the chair with a cushion and a blanket comfortably sleeping while the work goes on can only best be described as a very nice way to spend the afternoon!
You are all so kind, I no longer feel like a silly child for making a fuss.........................
and just look at my lovely teeth now - thank you Yasmin
I would advise anyone to take that big step and pick up the phone, go along to the practice for a chat and a look round. There is nothing to worry about. I am so pleased I made that call 14 months ago.
As you know I am very happy to talk to any nervous patients - just pass on my number or call me and and I will make contact.
Very many thanks to you all
