Oral Health & Dentistry Awards 2021

18 GHP / Oral Health &Dentistry Awards 2021 , Nov21769 Dr Jasmine Piran has an excellent reputation for being a gentle dentist who works with patients to create the smile they dreamof, usingminimally invasive general and cosmetic dentistry. Cosmetic Dentist of the Year (Greater London): Jasmine Piran Dr Jasmine Piran’s primary focus is on making sure each patient feels comfortable and relaxed throughout their treatment so the very best results can be achieved. Whether patients are visiting Dr Jasmine for a simple filling or a comprehensive smile makeover, her absolute priority is ensuring a positive dental experience and outcome. Jasmine qualified as a dentist at the prestigious Guy’s, King’s and St. Thomas’ Dental Institute in London in 2004. She has since achieved a master’s degree with distinction in Restorative and Aesthetic Dentistry from the University of Manchester, and she has attended many advanced clinical training courses in America, Switzerland, Italy and the UK. With a special interest in helping people improve their smiles, Jasmine has carried out hundreds of smile makeovers, involving varying combinations of porcelain veneers, tooth whitening, tooth alignment (using Invisalign, clear aligners, fixed braces, Inman aligners, 6 Month Smiles), and composite bonding. By practicing dentistry in Central London, Jasmine feels very fortunate to have people sitting in her chair from all walks of life, and she is always intrigued to hear their stories. One common theme that she has noticed among her patients over the last 10 to 15 years is a general increase in signs of stress. She said, “Your mouth tends to give all your secrets away, even when you aren’t speaking! So very little gets past your dentist… The pressures of life, work, Brexit – a lot of these things feel like they are out of our control and other than running away to live on a desert island (if only!), they can seem like pretty impossible things to fix.” Jasmine has observed that almost all her patients, friends and colleagues, no matter who they are and where they come from, are resistant to truly switching off, which can play a key part in feeling stressed. She encourages them, as well as herself, to take time away from phones – even it’s just on Sunday afternoons. She said, “Why not ‘slide to switch off’ and shimmy yourself out of the rat race for a couple of hours this weekend and see how beautifully peaceful it feels? You might actually enjoy it.” Jasmine has a psychology degree and has trained in hypnotherapy, so she is able to help people who are feeling particularly anxious about going to the dentist. She will work with the patient at their own pace in order to help them feel comfortable and in control of their dental visits. She can offer individualised hypnotherapy to help the patient achieve a deeper sense of relaxation and comfort during their dental treatment appointments. As shown through several positive comments on the company’s website, patients highly rate Dr Jasmine for her ability to make them feel at ease during appointments, as well as for providing a high standard of treatment and care. “Dr Jasmine Piran is a fantastic dentist who truly cares about her patients and makes you feel so relaxed during visits. I would highly recommend Smiles by Jasmine to everyone who is looking for a professional and outstanding clinic in London.” “I was quite nervous about my dental procedure! However, from the moment I arrived, I was made to feel at ease by all the staff. My dentist explained the procedure to me which I appreciated, but at the same time, I felt comfortable and distracted throughout the appointment. Lovely practice. I’ve recommended to all my friends!” “I have hated dentists all my life, but Dr Jasmine Piran always brings a smile to my face. A true professional who truly cares. If only I had met her years ago.” Company: Smiles by Jasmine Contact: Jasmine Piran Email: [email protected] Website: www.smilesbyjasmine.com
