Taking the step to life-changing dental implant treatment is an important decision; firstly as it involves surgery and secondly, because it can be a significant investment.
Every patient has different medical needs, personal requirements and priorities, so choosing the right dental team that you trust to safely deliver outstanding results and a positive treatment experience is a very personal decision.
There are many factors that contribute to successful dental implant treatment. We have outlined below the key reasons why hundreds of patients have chosen to have their Smile in a Day same-day implant procedure at TDC Implant Centres.
Legally, any qualified dentist can surgically place implants, regardless of how recently or frequently they do so. At TDC we only work with highly qualified and experienced practitioners.
The highly experienced dental teams that carry out our Smile in a Day procedure have been personally recruited by Dr Michael Zybutz, our Lead Surgeon. Michael is a Diplomate of The American Board of Periodontology and a world authority on dental implants, aesthetics and bone regeneration.
As a Periodontist, Michael specialises in the area of dentistry that is to do with the gums, roots and bone and the placement of dental implants. To become a Specialist, dentists are required to undertake three further years of specific training after finishing their dental degree. Only then can they register as a Specialist with the General Dental Council (GDC).
Michael is the only UK registered Specialist Periodontist accredited to the American Academy of Cosmetic Dentistry and has over 25 years of experience in placing dental implants.
He is renowned for successfully treating patients who have been told that their cases are too complex for treatment, including correcting failed treatments carried out elsewhere.
The TDC team routinely place dental implants and a full set of fixed teeth all in one day using our highly skilled, clinically safe Smile in a Day technique. Our patients arrive for surgery and leave, just hours later, with fixed teeth on implants. Their smiles and confidence are instantly restored – and there is no need to wear a removable denture during the healing phase.
No more dental pain, slipping dentures or worry about loose and missing teeth.
We are very proud of our reputation for excellence, our consistently outstanding results and 5 star reviews from our patients.
These confirm that we consistently achieve the very highest standards of patient satisfaction that we set ourselves. We subscribe to independently verified online review platforms, TrustPilot and Feefo so that patients know that our reviews can be trusted.
We routinely treat patients with severe gum disease and bone loss, many of whom have been told by their own dentist that they are not suitable for dental implants.
Due to the specific positioning of the implants, the procedure can be successfully carried out, without the need for sinus lifts or bone grafts in almost all cases.
In some cases of extreme bone loss, zygomatic (cheekbone) implants may be needed – but the procedure can still be carried out in a day. TDC are one of the few implant providers in the UK able to offer placement of zygomatic implants.
As any extractions, implant surgery and the placement of the temporary fixed teeth are performed on the same day, TDC Smile in a Day patients can avoid multiple surgical visits and months of healing time.
The procedure is also virtually pain-free; ideal for nervous patients or anyone looking for an immediate and safe solution.
Our Smile in a Day same-day implant technique is the most advanced dental implant protocol available.
TDC, the Original Home of Smile in a Day, won the “Most Innovative Dental Treatment or Service” Award at the My Face My Body industry awards in 2012.
We use the latest techniques and technology including CBCT scans and 3D printing/modelling of your jaw to ensure precise analysis, surgical planning and measurements for your new teeth
The quality of the implants and other materials used for your implant surgery can affect both short and longer-term success rates, as well as the aesthetics of your new teeth.
At TDC, we never compromise on quality to save cost. Everything we do is underpinned with quality to ensure your safety and the best possible results.
Advanced Aesthetic Dentist Dr Anthony Zybutz leads the aesthetic dentistry at TDC Implant Centres and is renowned for his work in restoring beautiful smiles.
He ensures the perfect fit, function and look of your new smile.
Having treated thousands of patients, he and his team of experienced restorative dentists know that having a beautiful new smile is about more than just aesthetics – it is often about restoring well-being, quality of life and self-confidence that only a top-quality implant solution can provide.
We want you to have the smile you have always wanted, so will spend time with you to plan how your new smile will look – both for your new teeth that we place on the day of your surgery and your final, permanent set.
Most patients prefer a natural-looking smile, but some want a dazzling Hollywood smile!
We encourage you to bring in old photos as it helps us get the size, shape and tooth colour exactly right.
No detail is too small.
“We change our patients’ lives by restoring their ability to eat, speak and smile with confidence, ridding them of dental pain and embarrassment forever. Our patients place their trust in us, even when others have told them they are not suitable for implants. We take that responsibility very seriously.”

Ensuring that we deliver outstanding results is just one part of the service that we offer. We strive to make the treatment journey of each patient as smooth and stress-free as it can possibly be.
We pride ourselves on being professional and caring at all times, and have a deep-rooted company ethos that places the needs and wishes of each individual patient at the heart of what we do. We will never rush you and will always keep you informed. We will always take the time to listen and to answer your questions openly and honestly.
Whichever of our three dental implant centres you choose, you will have your own dedicated Implant Patient Co-ordinator who will be there with you at every stage of your dental treatment. They will answer your questions, book your appointments and make sure you are fully up to date with your treatment steps from start to finish.
They will be there on the day of your surgery to welcome you and to look after anyone who is accompanying you.
Brothers, Drs Michael and Anthony Zybutz originally set up TDC Implant Centres to help people whose quality of life is affected by severe dental problems or from wearing dentures, including those who have been told that nothing can be done for them.
They knew that their Smile in a Day same-day dental implant protocol could change lives by restoring bite function and a natural-looking smile in one day.
Being family-run has many advantages – knowing each-other inside out, Michael and Anthony complement each-other’s skills and work together seamlessly – and this filters out across our three centres. Above all, it means that people are at the heart of everything we do whether you are a patient, a valued supplier or a member of the TDC dental team.
“The care at TDC is excellent. Everybody, right from Anthony, Michael, the nurses. You really feel like you’re in the right hands, that everything was being taken seriously and done properly.”
Glenda, TDC patient
Our centres are conveniently located in London’s Harley Street, Folkestone in Kent and Peterborough in Cambridgeshire. This gives you real peace of mind because:
From 2013, TDC’s Drs Michael and Anthony Zybutz and the TDC team appeared on Channel 5’s “Botched Up Bodies”, correcting botched dental treatment, (performed both abroad and in the UK), that had left people disfigured and in pain.
They used the Smile in a Day technique to restore the teeth, smiles and confidence of these patients. The transformation, including the actual surgical procedures, can be seen in the examples here.
And in May 2018, the TDC team treated patient Rebecca Webbon on a prime-time national TV show. The life-transformation show featured Rebecca undergoing treatment and the change it has made to her life.
Our patients tell us that they choose TDC for overall peace of mind – it’s the combination of our skill, experience and the whole team’s approach to excellence and patient care that sets us apart from other dentists.
If you would like to know more about TDC Implant Centres and how our Smile in a Day same-day dental implant procedure could help you, you can book your free consultation at any of our three dedicated implant centres in Harley Street, Folkestone or Peterborough.
Or you can call 02035536415 to speak with one of our friendly Patient Advisers – they will be very happy to help you, including answering any questions you may have concerning dental implant costs and finance options.
We care about delivering outstanding results to our patients, but also about making sure the whole process is a life-affirming experience – so winning the “Best Customer Experience” category at the 2018 My Face My Body Awards was a very proud moment.
