Dr Patricia Szymczak is the owner and principal dentist at our practices. She has 17 years hands-on clinical experience in dentistry in the UK and Poland, both working as a dental associate and running her own practices.
Patricia graduated from The Pomeranian Medical Academy in Szczecin, Poland, in 2001 and has since completed an MSc in Aesthetic Implantology. She is also an accredited Invisalign, Inman Aligner and Six Month Smiles provider, and is part way through an MSc in Orthdontics.
Patricia has treated patients in Central London and the West of England for the last 10 years, previously at her practice in Westminster and now at Sunnyside Dental Practice and Riverhead Dental Practice in Kent. Patricia is frequently commended for her relaxed friendly chair-side manner, and her exceptional depth and breath of experience. She has a keen interest in minimally invasive dentistry, root canal therapy and deep experience with cosmetic braces and implants.
From an early age, it was Patricia's dream to become a dentist because she wanted to help people find the best way to deal with the practical health issues they experience in their lives. She idealised the dental profession, thinking that all dentists aim to serve their patients and do the best for them. Her experience of the profession is that it often falls short of this aspiration. Many people are scared of going to the dentist. The profession sometimes exacerbates this problem by treating people in an unsympathetic manner and with a lack of compassion.
Patricia likes to remind dentists that there is a person, who has emotions and feelings, attached to the mouth that they are treating. At our practices, patients are treated as individuals. We help them overcome their fear, seek to gain their trust and put them in control of their dental health.
We deliver Enlightened Dentistry - an exceptional customer experience that focuses on making our patients feel good about every interaction they have with us. We improve lives by giving our patients confidence in everything that they do.
By changing the culture in the dental industry, Patricia aims to dramatically improve the patient experience and the level of service they receive. Here's a short video from Patrica explaining her approach.
