We are always delighted to hear from our patients after treatment has been completed. Here are some of their most recent comments:
Just under one year ago, after living decades with a troublesome bite, aching jaw, and tiny, tiny teeth as if disappearing, I was referred to Finn Dental Specialists by my dentist who had reached the end of the road in being able to care for my mouth. I arrived at Greg Finn’s first appointment feeling desperate, fearing the outcome of this appointment would be resigning myself to the fact that nothing could be done to my mouth and that for the rest of my days I would have to live with an aching jaw, out-of-control grinding and a toothless smile.
Almost ten months later, allowing for delay through the first lockdown, my mouth could not be further from the above-mentioned negative outcome. On Tuesday, As I rose from Greg Finn’s dental chair and looked at my mouth through a hand-held mirror, I saw a mouth more like the one of my much younger self and a smile with teeth that I thought I had lost forever; it is hard to put into words how happy that makes me feel, but one thing sure I am certainly more confident.
This morning I attended a Zoom meeting with colleagues and rather than keeping the webcam switched off, I turned it on and occasionally glanced at the camera to watch myself laughing; I now have to pinch myself that I have this natural looking and wonderful smile.
Thank you, Greg Finn, your lovely dental nurses and your administrative team for each being a part of this journey with its breath-taking outcome. You have spent hours upon hours working on my mouth demonstrating incredible patience and care. When working in difficult areas you have diverted my attention through chatter about all kinds of things, indeed, reflecting back, I remember more the conversations than the dentistry!
Finn Dental Specialists live up to their name, I would not hesitate to recommend them, the best money I have ever spent on myself by far. A BIG thank you.

Best dental surgery in the universe. Thank you Guy and all the staff at Finn Dental.— D Newbury – 26 June 2019
I have been terrified to the core of my soul about dentists until I came to see you wonderful souls. Team Finn rocks!
I have been going here for many years and always seen Greg. I’ve always thought this is the best practice in Beckenham. My teeth are still with me despite my increasingly old age! He has always been a true professional and is a real pleasure to be with. You will always be put at ease when visiting the practice – listening to his stories, wit and wisdom. Nice premises, lovely staff and parking is easy. Don’t think of going elsewhere.— P Turner – April 2019
Absolutely would recommend highly. I’ve always been an anxious patient when it comes to dentistry, but the team has been amazing and changed that completely. For the first time in years I can smile properly. Thank-you.— R Barratt - 4 April 2019
I woke up with a terrible toothache at about 5am. I’ve only got one bad tooth in my mouth but it’s had a lot of work done on it in the past, at other dentists. I felt sure I was going to lose it this time, I was in a lot of pain. Greg saw me right away at 10am. I have very, very bad dentist anxiety – a tough dental patient. Although it wasn’t a fun experience, I think it went really well. He was very calm, very confident, very professional. Just what was needed. And so far I’ve still got the tooth. I felt really good about going there in an emergency, I can’t think of anything they could have done better, I’m really grateful.— C Reveley – April 2019
Superb service. Very friendly and charming team. I’ve known Greg for 30 -odd years and he’s done a wonderful job on my front tooth implant where three other dentists failed. I wouldn’t go anywhere else. Highly recommended.— R Bijlani – March 2019
I have nothing but praise for Finn Dental. The treatment that I and my wife and son have received from Greg Finn has been superb. He is supported by a team who, without exception, I have found to be not only highly professional, conscientious and efficient but also friendly and caring.— H Starte - February 2019

Not forgetting the reception staff who always gave me a friendly smile and were always very helpful and encouraging. The work I have had done is amazing.’— M Gardner July 2018
‘Words really do seem inadequate to express how fantastic Finn Dental practice is. I too am a very anxious patient but when I see Guy Stephens I know I am in safe hands. Guy is awe inspiring in the excellence and care he shows in his artistry and craft of dentistry. Thank you. Agi was assisting him during my last visit and she is kind and brilliant too. All the staff at Finn Dental always go above and beyond for you every time. I cannot recommend them highly enough. In fact I think they may all be earth angels in disguise. They are definitely a blessing to me . Thank you.’— D Newberry July 2018

A very big thank you to all the team at Greg Finn dental practice for doing such an expert, pain-free and caring job on inserting five implants into my ropey old gums a couple of weeks ago. I cannot recommend them highly enough.
Having already had four implants and a sinus lift on the left side four years ago, which went brilliantly well, the only discomfort during that procedure was having to keep my mouth open for about four hours, this time I decided to opt for sedation.
Dr. Ramassur was the anaesthetist who rang me a week before the procedure to explain what would happen and how I would feel both during and after the sedation. He was extremely reassuring and everything he told me was exactly what I experienced…
Greg was also extremely kind and reassuring when I arrived for the treatment, and the surgeon, Eoin O’Sullivan was a magician. I felt no pain both during and particularly after the procedure. I took two precautionary pain killers that night, but had no need of them again as although there was some swelling, there was no pain.
And also a big thank to the dental nurses who were extremely attentive and comforting throughout.
A brilliant job all round.— Dilly Barlow January 2017
Finn Dental Specialists were recommended to me by a friend’s son who is a dentist and had been trained by Greg. First of all Greg replaced a denture with a bridge in the top of my mouth. I had worn the denture for many, many years and could not believe the difference it made to my confidence and self esteem. Some ten years later I developed an infection in my lower gum and all my remaining teeth were extracted by another dentist who fitted a full bottom plate, which from the outset was very uncomfortable. I sought Greg’s advice and he suggested that I might like implants and after much thought and apprehension I decided to proceed. But I needn’t have worried. Greg explained the whole procedure in great detail which was carried out so efficiently and effectively. Greg, the nurses Jo and Kerry and Hayley became friends and I actually looked forward to visiting the surgery. Now that it is all over, I am so delighted with the result which has been life changing. I would highly recommend Greg and his team for any implant procedures you are considering. You will not be disappointed.— Mary Lee (November 2016)
Eoin placed seven implants for me. All implants went to plan and I have experienced no subsequent problems. Throughout the procedures, which included some bone augmentation, Eoin explained carefully what was planned and how things would go. Their procedures were performed in a way which minimised discomfort and I was very impressed with Eoin’s reassuring and professional manner.— Terence O’Sullivan (no relation!)
We were recommended to use Greg Finn’s practice by a trusted friend who had had very positive experiences. But after years of poor dental attention (and putting off the”evil day”!!), we were quite daunted by the first assessment appointment. We needn’t have worried! From the warm welcome by receptionists, dental nurses and the kind reassuring manner of Greg, we soon knew we were in safe hands!
Treatment for us both was long, tortuous and at times quite traumatic – but the plan of action was carefully explained and executed and it was all worth it to achieve such a high level of dental health and cosmetic improvement.
While we wouldn’t exactly say that we ”enjoyed” visiting the practice, the team’s skills and kindness always made us feel less nervous and more confident!
And after all our visits and dealing with the receptionists, nurses, Tracey, Joao and Greg we now feel part of the Finn family – altogether a wonderful and skillful specialist dental practice.— Louise and Peter Cresswell
Eoin was so lovely and calm when I had my implants. He took such care and attention that I felt totally safe and relaxed during the process and nearly fell asleep! I never thought I would say that about a visit to the dentist.— Ruth Martin
A visit to the dentist is a daunting experience for many people but visiting Greg Finn is not.
Right from the start the door is opened by a smiling nurse who somehow makes you feel at ease and the atmosphere of the waiting room is unlike most dentists with lovely flowers and looking out onto the gardens with the odd chicken roaming around.
I have been visiting Greg for many years and each time have been delighted with the outcome as he is a perfectionist with a manner which makes you laugh but at the same time you feel very safe in his hands.
This year I had five implants done and am absolutely delighted with the result. The expertise of Joao Sousa, implant surgeon, is second to none and, once again, you know that you are in the hands of a caring professional.
I would not hesitate to recommend Finn Dental Specialists.— Maggie Hawkins
What impressed me about the practice from day one was the friendly environment and absolute attention to detail. The treatment plan was spot-on and transparent and patient care was of the highest order. I felt in safe hands throughout the procedures. The results met all my expectations.— Ken Watson
Initially I came to Finn Dental on a recommendation from my daughter who was herself a patient. Unfortunately I have needed a considerable amount of dental work over the last few years but fortunately I had come to Finn Dental. I have had extractions, root canal work and implant surgery all of which have been carried out with great skill and sensitivity and in an atmosphere so friendly and very relaxing. Nothing has ever been too much trouble for anyone – from the skill of the dentists to the nurses and office staff – I cannot give them high enough praise!— Rabbi David L.
