Martin is a firm believer in being experienced in the placement and the restoration of the implants to ensure the replacement teeth are in exactly the right place. The person who places the implant must have the experience of the restorative process.

Martin believes in only working with the best, most experienced Dental Technicians who are qualified and trained in the chosen Implant system. He expects the highest standard and quality of technical work from the laboratory. This also applies to the support staff at Silverwell St who have undertaken approved courses to fully understand how the implant process works.
