Foreword from our founders
Yevhen Hunyak and Roksolana Mykhalus
We are a brother-and-sister team of second-generation dentists. Our parents are doctors and, thanks to their active preventive measures, we never experienced toothache during our childhood, never had any root canal treatments, and have never needed a filling, a crown or an implant placed. We had the best start in life, and want to give our own children the same, fear-free experience of dentistry.
We both chose our career in dentistry because, quite simply, it is our passion – and we want to share it.
We came up with the idea of creating a dental practice that would specialise in children’s dentistry back in 2015. Having both started our own families, it was our children who prompted us to look into creating a family dentist that puts as much focus on children, and their specific needs, as on adults. Yevhen’s daughter had had a bad experience with her visit to a dentist in London and, having lived in the US, we were surprised to find out how difficult it is to find an established private dentist that can provide specialist paediatric care, thereby treating the whole family in a truly comprehensive way. Compared to the world-leading services available in USA, we saw clear room for improvement here in the UK – and that’s how Happy Kids Dental came into being.
With our new practice, we had three key aims:
- The practice should offer truly comprehensive family dentistry – and that means specialist paediatric services. This is crucial for getting children on board with oral hygiene from an early age and enabling them to grow up with only positive experiences of dental visits.
- The practice should be big – able to accommodate all areas of dentistry in-house, from specialist paediatric care and specialist orthodontics to hygiene, endodontics and cosmetic dentistry – as well as providing enough space for children to play and adults to relax.
- The practice should treat children with the same level of care and attention that adults would expect, and offer adults an unrivalled breadth of quality services and bespoke care.
Our main aims agreed on, we got to work! We gathered a team of top specialists in their field and equipped our practice with the latest technology – including an advanced dental microscope, painless computer anaesthesia, sedation systems, dental lasers and the most high-tech systems for caries diagnostics, such as DIAGNOcam. Because we are combining the most innovative and proven treatment techniques with a robust approach to prevention, our team can achieve the best results for smiles that are both healthy and beautiful.
Our investment in people and technology goes hand in hand with our passion for prevention. Statistics show that more than 60% of children in the UK suffer from tooth decay, and 60% of adults have gum disease. That’s why we are big believers in being proactive about prevention. Our approach includes regular, comprehensive examinations by a paediatric dentist from the age of 0 to 18, coupled with regular professional hygiene treatment and early prevention of orthodontic disease. Dental practices with a similar ethos are widespread in the USA – and we think it’s no coincidence that a “Hollywood smile” is desired the world over.
We are so proud of Happy Kids Dental and invite all parents who share our values to come and see for themselves how we’re doing dentistry differently – creating healthy, happy smiles for the whole family.
