Our History

We've been around for more than 30 years, and specialised exclusively in full mouth dental implants since 2007. Now with a team of 80+ experts, clinicians, nurses and engineers across our 4 locations, this is our story...

More than 30 years ago, Dr Padmanabhhan Vijayanarayanan (Dr Vijay Sr), a bright, ambitious young radiologist working in Brunei, decided he had to help his wife who had struggled for years with poor oral health. Back then,it was either ill-fitting dentures or multiple trips around the globe seeking pioneering new procedures at a cost of $80,000. He chose the latter, which would ultimately take two years and numerous trips overseas to deliver ad solution…It worked.

A previously unhappy wife and mother’s life was transformed. Little did he know at the time that, 20 years later, his eldest son, Dr Rajesh Vijayanarayanan (Dr Vijay), would start a clinic in Liverpool dedicated exclusively to dental implants – evolving ultimately to limit practice to full-arch rehabilitation in 2014– before going on to open a second clinic in London Heathrow in 2015, and third clinic in Solihull in 2021.
