When we’re planning a treatment, we combine expert surgical skills with advanced technology to create a solution that’s effective and personal. The two aspects of our work complement each other beautifully, having created life-changing smiles for many happy patients.
Dr. Veige has a particular interest in minimally invasive guided implant dentistry. This technology uses specialised implant planning software and implant guides to accurately, safely and painlessly place dental implants to restore natural smiles. After all, customer satisfaction is at the heart of our service.
We understand that the needs of each individual are unique, so we take a completely personal approach with every patient. The facilities we have, along with David’s extensive experience providing patients with the most aesthetic, long-lasting smiles, make us a reliable choice for all patients.
David Veige, our Clinical Director, is originally from Guelph, Ontario, Canada. Now living in Harrogate, he is a leader in the industry of clinical dentistry. Not only does he utilise his own in-practice dental laboratory, but he’s a lecturer for multiple implant companies, a clinical mentor to new dentists, a member of the Association of Dental Implantology (ADI) and a member of the International Team for Implantology (ITI). Dr. Veige has placed 3,500 dental implants (and counting!) with a 99% success rate.
David began his education as a dental technician at George Brown College in Toronto before moving to the UK to study Dentistry at the University of Newcastle. He trained as a dental technician, being responsible for the fabrication of highly aesthetic crowns, veneers and implant restorations.
After his graduation, Dr. Veige completed a Masters of Science degree in Implantology. This allowed him to boast skills as both a dental technician and an implant surgeon, which is a rare combination among dentists in the UK. It intertwines both a technical and clinical aspect to his treatment management, giving him a unique and advanced perspective on dental artistry.
Outside of his passion for dentistry, David enjoys living locally and spending time with his wife and three children. To his disappointment, his children have opted for a Yorkshire accent rather than his Canadian one!
Many of our patients are nervous or anxious about visiting the dentist. This is very common and completely understandable. However, we pride ourselves on ensuring our patients are at ease throughout their whole visit. We will reassure you of everything we are doing and why we’re doing it. It is of the utmost importance to us that you have a comfortable experience at Smile Designs from when you step through our doors to when you leave with a life-changing smile.
The team members at our practice really are one big family and we welcome each patient into our community with open arms. We are always here for our patients, ready to answer their questions, give them advice and guide them through their journey so they never feel anxious or alone.
