No judgment dentistry – This is a safe space
I was so nervous when I contacted winning smiles as I had not seen a dentist for some time and knew my gums were a mess and my bottom 2 teeth were very loose. Denise contacted me the following day, she was so kind and sympathetic as I was so nervous about seeing the dentist.
I did not want to be judged for having not had any treatment for so long. Denise reassured me that my consultation with Andrew Fennell would be judgemental free and very professional. I booked to see Andrew a few weeks later and from that day all I can say is that I have never looked back.
Before my implant treatment, I have had several intense treatments for my gum disease with Anita Sarkadi.
Anita has been amazing, treating my gum disease over several months and there has now been a vast improvement in my gum health.
Andrew and Sam – what can I say -over several months I have had treatment for dental implants for my bottom two teeth.
The treatment was almost painless as advertised and knowing how scared I was this was a blessing.
I can not thank you both for your patience, and the professionalism and kindness that you showed to me.
I now have the confidence to smile again!
I’m incredibly grateful to them.
I had advanced gum disease and missing/ failing teeth. The worse they got the harder it was to fix. I was so terrified of both the dentist and of being judged for allowing things to get so bad that I couldn’t even phone. In a brave moment, I filled in the contact section of the Winning Smiles website. Denise phoned me the following day. She listened, was sympathetic and booked me in for a consultation with Andrew. At our first meeting, I had scans and Andrew explained what treatments I was suitable for. I was given detailed costs of my options and I left to consider them without pressure. I opted for both upper and lower implants. Andrew explained my best chance of a good outcome was to have immediate fixed teeth on the bottom and a temporary denture at the top while my bone grafts/implants healed and integrated. The surgery was a long day but at no point was I in any pain or discomfort. Andrew and his dental nurse Sam checked on me constantly and reassured me throughout. I left with fixed lower teeth and a temporary upper denture. The next day I was slightly swollen but much better than I had expected which I told Andrew when he phoned to check on me. The remainder of my treatment was done over the following few months without pain or stress. Fast forward to today when I had my first check-up since my upper teeth were fitted. I can’t describe how thrilled I am with the final results. I smile without thinking about it, eat what I want and my general health has greatly improved. My new teeth look amazing but very natural which was exactly the look I wanted. I’m no longer terrified of the dentist and happily attend my checkups/hygiene appointments. My treatment was fantastic from start to finish and I can’t recommend Andrew, Sam and the team more highly. I really wish I’d found them sooner. This has really been a life-changing experience and I’m incredibly grateful to them.
This review is a long time coming but something I keep meaning to do.
Like most I had a phobia for dentistry but I was left with little choice as my gums were receding and my top teeth were falling out. It was going to be false teeth or implants .
Implants it was. Of course, I was terrified having all my teeth taken out. I also had to undergo a bone graft so I was in it for the long haul.
It was the best decision I ever made. Honestly, it’s not as bad as you might think. The team make you comfortable and they go above and beyond to make this scary process worth the wait. My teeth look amazing.
2 years on Andrew has become my trusted friend and when you are having such major work done that is the relationship you want.
The whole team at Winning Smiles are first class. Thank you all for everything your kindness and hard work and of course putting up with me.
Would I recommend it… it goes without question. If you choose to have implants Andrew is defo the best.
My first consultation at the surgery, was with Andrew Fennell.
We discussed my concerns and worries; he explained all options and suggested, what he considered was best for me.
My treatment was completed in June. I had six porcelain crowns fitted, which truly gave me a “Winning Smile”. Andrew and his team were brilliant.
I cannot thank him enough.. I would highly recommend Andrew, his team, and all at Winning Smiles Dental Surgery!
embarrassed to laugh and smile
I have recently had teeth implants on my upper jaw and I am so pleased with the results!!! Andrew is amazing and made me feel so comfortable and at ease throughout the whole procedure.. Which I can say was painless 🙂
My dental nurse Sam was so lovely too as were all the staff!! I have always been so embarrassed to laugh and smile and now thanks to Winning Smiles and Andrew I have the confidence to be myself and not hide my mouth… Thank you so much xx
I forget that I have implants
After an accident which resulted in losing some of my upper teeth I had dentures made by a previous dentist which I hated.
I wanted my teeth to look and feel natural without having to glue them in every morning and remove them at night. I decided to visit Winning Smiles for a consultation regarding implants. Andrew advised and explained everything and provided a detailed breakdown of the costs.
I was happy to go ahead and am so pleased that I plucked up the courage to have the implants fitted. Andrew is very skilled, he and his team are totally professional and put you at ease. Nothing is too much trouble and I can’t thank them enough. I have had no pain whatsoever, I can eat and talk normally now, in fact I forget that I have implants as they just feel and look like natural teeth, and the best thing ever is that I no longer have to remove my dentures every night!
Andrew was absolutely amazing
I went to Andrew Fennell with many problems
Crowns needing replacing
And needing many implants
Straight away I was put on a step by step plan of action
Teeth whitening for readiness of implants and new crowns
Andrew was absolutely amazing all way through procedures
And I’m glad to say that my work was completed after a long journey and I’m delighted
I can smile and laugh again instead of hiding my teeth
He is Fantastic
And so are all staff
So friendly and kind
Tuesday I went back to Andrew for a check and I ended up having a wisdom tooth out there and then so I wouldn’t encounter a further problem
Thank you Andrew
Thoroughly recommend this dentist
I would 1000% recommend winning smiles
Decided 2 years after first consultation to get my bridges removed as they were loose damaged and looked awful.
Andrew Fennell and sam were wonderful from the off. And very 1st consultation.
Andrew put me at ease, and made me feel that no question I had couldn’t be answered.
Through a lot of surgery, bone grafts, stitches and teeth removal, over a period of months, andrew and sam were always helpful, professional, and always made sure I was coping well and comfortable.
I now am able to laugh and smile again without covering my mouth anymore and my confidence is returning.
I would 1000% recommend winning smiles
All the staff are wonderful and helpful and friendly.
Nothing is too much trouble either.
All through lockdown, I still had treatment, everything was very clean, hygienic , and was totally covid secure.
Can’t thank Andrew enough.
I didn’t look at any reviews, but went on my own personal experience of meeting Andrew, as he was recommended to me by my regular dentist for the work I needed doing.
Can honestly say the recommendation and my own gut feeling was spot on.
Thank you Andrew. You are simply wonderful and top at what you do.
Would recommend to anyone, with any fears to see Andrew, it will change your life.
Thank you all
I now have a winning smile
After breaking my front lateral incisor, from eating some crusty bread, I visited my own dentist, who suggested a consultation with a private dentist who specialised in the provision of implants.
Winning Smiles were recommended to me and I arranged for a consultation with Dr. Andrew Fennell. Andrew was very professional and advised me of the procedure for an implant, including the costs. I found Andrew and all his staff to be very friendly, helpful and Covid secure on every visit throughout the procedure. I am very pleased with the result and true to say I now have a Winning Smile.
Totally pain free new veneers
After my son Jamie had his top composite veneers done I booked to have my top ones done . As a very nervous patient who would normally be sedated I sat for numerous hours while Jamie and Racheal fitted my new composite veneers .
They made me feel totally at ease and totally pain free my new veneers look amazing so much so I’m having the bottoms ones done . Thankyou so much to you both your the best and I now have a winning smile

also excellent value for money.
Cant recommend or thank winning smiles enough,
I wish I had it done years ago.
Without reservation, recommending Winning Smiles
I had several upper crowns and a bridge fitted 15-20 years. ago. I thought my teeth could look better.
From my first visit, this was the practice for me and I didn’t even consider looking elsewhere. Everyone was so friendly and efficient.
I first saw Alex and subsequently Andrew. Due to medication, implants are not a recommended option for me.
Andrew has replaced my crowns, added a couple more and replaced the bridge. He suggested the new be a tiny fraction longer than the old ones, saying to see more teeth when I spoke and smiled would be a nicer look – of course, he is right!
Throughout the whole process, Andrew was patient, informative and explained everything.
He happily answered all my questions even the ones I knew were quite trivial. I was expecting some pain but there was absolutely none even at my 5 hour+ appointment! Anyway, I already trusted Andrew to know he would not have let me suffer any pain.
I am so happy with what Andrew has achieved. I feel he does everything possible to give the best smile possible by telling his patients what he can do but equally important what he can’t do.
Alex did some cosmetic fillings and arranged some bleaching which has made a big difference to my (own) bottom teeth. This and everything Andrew has done leaves me, without reservation, recommending Winning Smiles. Thank you!
I was recommended Winning Smiles by a friend of mine after a previous bad experience with another dentist. I met Andrew for a consultation at the end of may and knew instantly he was a very decent human being but more importantly a very good dentist. During my initial appointment he explained both thoroughly and simply every stage of my treatment. Now just four months later I have a full set of upper jaw implants and two single implants on my lower jaw. I just cannot emphasis the improvement in my appearance and ability to eat everything. Finally I just want to stress how painless the whole procedure was and have no hesitation in recommending Andrew and all the other helpful members of staff. Thanks for everything

Having put up with my dodgy teeth for a long time I decided to have a chat winning smiles .
I met Jamie who advised me on the best treatment for me . Very professional , had all the answers and did a fantastic job. 2 new crowns and filled a gap where I had a tooth removed years ago. I am very happy with the results and highly recommend these guys. Very professional and friendly . The only pain was the price but that’s the going rate for this kind of work. Thanks
Second Implant Fitted
When my dentist suggested a tooth needed to be removed and I should consider an implant ….. I was slightly horrified. Thankfully his recommendation was Andrew and his amazing team at ‘Winning Smiles’. From the lovely Denise on reception through to Andrew the team were professional and reassuring. Today I had my second implant / tooth fitted. I feel amazing and became overwhelmed as I thanked Andrew tonight.
This investment in your smile is worth every penny and I’m just beyond thankful I didn’t go anywhere else. Thanks, everyone. Have a well earned holiday Andrew. See you all in 6 months 😀
Astounded By Level of Care
I left the RAF about 14 years ago and never got round to signing-up with a civilian dentist. About a year ago an upper front crown came loose so I had to get it sorted out. For many years “getting my teeth done” had been on my bucket list and I decided it was finally time to (carefully) bite the bullet. I drive a taxi for a living and Winning Smiles was recommended to me by a random customer – who had a perfect smile. I only met the guy that one time and wish I could track him down to thank him.
Anyway, I booked myself in for a check up and that’s where my journey began. Since then I’ve had loads of work done – including fillings, crowns, root canal work, a bone graft, removal of a cyst, extraction of a wisdom tooth, bleaching and an implant.
Having spent 30 years being treated by military dentists I’m astounded by the level of care and professionalism of the Winning Smiles team. The receptionists are brilliant – super efficient, friendly and always smiling – and they do all have fabulous smiles! As for Charlotte, Jamie, Lauren and head honcho Andrew – wow, all outstanding and extremely good at what they do. Doctor Fennel is a master of the dark art of cosmetic dentistry, a true perfectionist who oh so obviously loves his job.
My teeth are now back to how they should be (far better, in fact) and I can’t thank the Winning Smiles team enough. The upper front crown (put in by a RAF dentist) that came loose and started me on my journey had been in there for about 40 years and had always been a few shades whiter than my other teeth so I’d got used to “smiling with my mouth closed”. Nowadays I’m just getting the hang of smiling properly – and I love it!
My only regret is that I didn’t do this many years ago and, if you’re reading this and thinking of “getting your teeth done”, I urge you to take the plunge and give Winning Smiles a call – you won’t regret it!
