Every visit to this clinic has been a pleasure, not something one would normally hear about the dentists, but I wanted to share my experience at Skin and Smiles, I almost look forward to the next visit. I took advantage of a first free consultation in which my options were outlined, and led onto several others for investigation, 3D scanning, Xrays, and discussions about what I wanted to achieve. Dr Murgai is honest in what can be achieved, is most detailed in his explanations of treatment and costs. His range of high-tech equipment is outstanding and it complements his professional skill and personable manner, along with his in-depth knowledge and consummate expertise has ensured each visit has been most beneficial. He explained each step of the process and allowed me several options with a full financial breakdown of costs and the honest expectation of the desired outcome. There was no pressure to chose the any particular options, the possibilities of what could be achieved and at what price was my choice and I’m so very pleased with the work. The team at this clinic are pleasant, professional and most importantly are friendly yet efficient; nothing is too much trouble. I always feel confident in their capacity to put me at my ease. The practice manager phones a couple of days after major works to enquire how I feel and I know that if there was a problem, their 24-hour support line is there if needed. I know they would accommodate me at very short notice, later the same day if needed. The team which surrounds Dr Murgai are wonderful, his practice manager, his dental nurses, his hygienist, and his laboratory technicians are superb and experts in their particular dental field. My teeth/gums have deteriorated over the years and whilst I’ve had treatment by other dentists over the years, it was time to seriously assess my long-term prospects. Dr Murgai took a holistic approach of my mouth, and we discussed the options available. This was reassuring and I didn’t feel as though I was just another customer. The different costs of alternative treatments were thoroughly explained in a treatment plan and I was given the choice of which of the packages I wanted. I’ve felt safe and reassured in every way since my first free consultation to my very soon to be completed transformation. I had contemplated going abroad for implants as the cost was less, I can emphatically state that having a local professional expert clinic was been the best option for me. I am so pleased I chose Skin and Smiles for my work; it’s been worth the investment. They are dedicated professionals and worthy of my utmost praise and recommendation.

I went to skin and smiles as I had previously been unhappy with 2 other dentists and I was aware that I could be in danger of losing another tooth. I wanted one place to go to get everything sorted and not to have to look for a specialist for crowns, implants etc Very professional service and I was immediately made to feel at ease and I knew I had made the right choice I had to have a crown on a tooth that was cracked and this was all sorted within the same appointment, very impressive I also needed an implant and whilst this took several months from start to finish, I knew I was in good hands. I had a little discomfort which dissipated after a few days I am so pleased with how my teeth look and would definitely recommend them

I recently completed the process of a tooth implant which was rather lengthly as it also involved an extraction and bone graft. I cant recommend Dr Murgai and his team highly enough. Professional dentistry at its best. Thank you I am thrilled with the results Kind regards Kristina Taylor

Just a few words to say thanks to Dr Murgai and all the team at Skin and Smiles post my treatment for a dental implant. Firstly I would like to echo the reviews from those who have reservations regarding dental treatment. As someone who is anxious with dental care I can say that my treatment was first class. I was completely put at ease by their care, communication and professionalism. In my case the treatment was complex, including an extraction, yet was carried out without causing me any discomfort or worry and I am extremely pleased with the quality of the work Dr Murgai has undertaken. Their surgery is modern and well equipped while the interior is well lit and comfortable. It really does put you at ease from the start. It is also within easy walking distance of Watford tube station. I thoroughly recommend this practice and would have no hesitation in returning in future should I require similar treatment.
