Highgate Dental Practice

About Us

 Highgate Dental Practice – the place for healthy, beautiful smiles that last a lifetime.  

Some of our patients travel from as far afield as Switzerland, New York and Nairobi to visit our practice. Our approach, skills and outcomes are highly regarded, and we go to great lengths to ensure we stay ahead and deliver exceptional outcomes.

Established in 1914, in the heart of London’s beautiful Highgate Village, Highgate Dental Practice has been led by principal dentist, Dr Hugo Hagen since 2000.

We pride ourselves on accomplished work that our patients receive in our relaxed, modern and progressive environment.

Our highly qualified and experienced team of specialists, dentists and hygienists will lead you along a journey to achieving your perfect smile using modern technology and techniques, and a gentle touch.

We are continually investing in the latest equipment and the highest quality of materials to ensure the best results, and it is thanks to our ongoing programme of modernisation and quality assurance that you can be confident of receiving the most up to date treatment options to achieve your desired goals.

We take great pride in the quality of the dentistry and hygiene care we provide and ensure that every member of our team takes part in regular professional development. All colleagues are registered with the General Dental Council (GDC), and our clinic meets the standards set by the Care Quality Commission (CQC) as an additional way of ensuring best practice.

The diverse expertise at our disposal means that all of your dental and beauty care will be offered right here at Highgate Dental Practice, with no need to be referred elsewhere.

Alongside our specialist and cosmetic dental treatments, our facial rejuvenation and skin fillers will achieve truly excellent results. Our clinicians are fully qualified to deliver painless treatment that can help to remove signs of lines and wrinkles that come to us all as part of the ageing process.

Your general health is important to us and we will continually monitor your wellbeing, including back and posture issues, energy levels, and nutrition and stress levels, and should any issues emerge we have close links with a highly regarded nutritional therapist also based in Highgate Village.

You can have total confidence that the treatments we offer will be right for you, and more importantly will help you achieve your perfect smile, thanks to our tried and tested 4-step dental pathway.

Our 4-step dental pathway explained:

  • Pain Control and Emergency Care: we aim to provide immediate emergency care and do not leave urgent dental emergencies untreated.
  • Diagnosis and treatment of Dental Disease: our experienced clinical team take advantage of the latest equipment to help us diagnose and treat dental disease.
  • Dental Function: through diagnosis and careful treatment planning we aim to restore dental function by replacing missing teeth with dentures, bridges and implants; improve existing fillings and old dental work; and correct dental imperfections in our orthodontic clinic.
  • Aesthetic and Cosmetic Treatment: Once we have established overall oral health you will be referred to our Hygiene clinic for maintenance or if you wish to improve your smile we can advise you on a cosmetic dental treatment of your choice and suitability. We strongly believe on minimal intervention approach.

We see the perfect smile as a journey rather than a destination. Once we have completed your pathway of treatment, your care will continue via our team of experienced hygienists and you will be invited to return to our clinic once a year for a dental examination.

Take your first steps on the pathway to your perfect smile by calling us on 020 8340 2138 or by emailing contact@highgatesmiles.co.uk. You can also fill in our contact form and one of our team will be in touch to arrange your initial consultation.

We look forward to welcoming you to Highgate Dental Practice.
