SAY HELLO TO OUR

Paediatric Team

Our team at Happy Kids Dental offers an enhanced level of children’s dental care in London. We are experienced working with special educational needs and always speak to children using language on their level.

At Happy Kids Dental, we hope you will view our team as an extension of your family – our aim is that parents consider dental visits an integral part of their children’s healthy lifestyle. To achieve this, we have gathered a team of dentists with a specific interest in paediatrics, who work together seamlessly to deliver individually tailored care – beginning with a comprehensive oral-health assessment, and ending with a bespoke treatment plan. Our dual-qualified dental hygienists/therapists are adept at building positive patient relationships, making prevention fun and easy while being able to help with the transition to treatment. Because our team is multidisciplinary, we can care for our patients continually until they turn 18 – an approach that results in less anxiety and better long-term oral health. Holistic, compassionate and comprehensive, our team represents our ethos.

Stephanie Oiknine

Orthodontist

DMD MSc MOrth RCSEd
Specialist Orthodontist
GDC No. 195243

Stephanie completed her specialist training in orthodontics at King’s College London. Stephanie was awarded the distinction for her outstanding work on her Master’s degree and the membership in Orthodontics by the Royal College of Surgeons. Stephanie originally qualified in dentistry at Tel Aviv University. She then undertook further training in advanced general dentistry and trained with experts in the field of aesthetic dentistry at the Hadassah University of Jerusalem. After practising for five years in general and aesthetic dentistry, she relocated to London and began her specialist training in orthodontics. Her background in aesthetic dentistry has given Stephanie an eye for detail that is often lacking in traditional orthodontics.

Stephanie believes that orthodontics is about more than straight teeth; it is where art meets science, and detail meets beauty. At Happy Kids Dental, Stephanie uses the most contemporary techniques to provide orthodontics for children. She believes in interceptive treatments for children, where possible avoiding extraction, working with growth and development patterns, as well as functional treatments and fixed braces.

A certified Invisalign practitioner, Stephanie is also qualified to provide Incognito and WIN lingual braces. She considers all modern systems for her cases, including ceramic braces.

Stephanie has expertise with cases involving jaw surgery and those requiring multidisciplinary treatments involving restorative dentistry or gum surgery. She works closely with the team to provide results that encompass all aspects of the smile, jaw, and face.
