As the year draws to a close, I thought I would reflect on and share some of the key highlights of 2022.
New Harley Street Premises
As the world started to return to a welcome sense of normality following the removal of COVID restrictions in February, we began to look ahead to not only how LLOC was growing as a Clinic, but how we could better support the needs and treatments of our existing and new patients. We, therefore, took the decision to relocate from our long-established premises at 57a Wimpole street to a beautifully light-filled property in Harley Street. Situated in the heart of Marylebone and just a short distance from the elegant Cavendish Square Gardens, we wanted our prestigious new location to be a testament to our clients who travel from all around London and beyond to receive their treatment from us. Our aim was to create a space that was modern, attractive and welcoming. With attention to detail and beautiful aesthetics, we wanted it to underline the world-class level of care we ensure is given to every patient. From your feedback, we believe we have achieved this.
European Society of Lingual Orthodontists
During the ESLO Congress in Sorrento in June, I was honoured to be elected as President of the European Society of Lingual Orthodontists. I will hold this role for two years, and as well as supporting the strategic direction of the Society, I will be responsible for the 2024 Congress, which brings together lingual orthodontists from all over the World.
Winner of Top Doctors award
This has been a year of many changes, accomplishments and recognition for LLOC, and we were therefore delighted to finish with another high note by becoming a Top Doctors award winner. The award was nominated by our peers and we were thrilled to be recognised for our skills which places us amongst the highest-level of specialists in the UK, and around the world.
Looking forward to 2023
2022 has been a momentous year for the Clinic and we have been honoured by the many existing and new patients and their families who we have come to know and befriend over the year. This has been a wonderful experience for me and my team, but I say truthfully that absolutely none of this would have happened if it had not been for your support, your trust in our services, and your engagement with the Clinic.
With many thanks and wishing you much happiness for 2023, and many years of beautiful smiles.
