Dr Daniel Sutcliffe Holistic Dentist

From a very young age, I wanted to be a Dentist! Dentistry is a real passion of mine, and I like to keep up-to-date with this ever-changing profession.

I qualified from Manchester University in 2004 and then went on to my first post in Southport, Merseyside. From here, I gained experience in many aspects of Dentistry across various locations and practices, both NHS and private.

In 2006, I was fortunate to secure a position in a prestigious private practice in central Manchester. A few years later, I went on to own the practice.

I am now very proud to be working on Harley Street, London. This has always been a dream of mine!

I feel that my team and I offer our patients the very best that dentistry can offer. I genuinely love meeting new people and thrive on providing bespoke dental care tailored to each patient's needs.

I have recently passed my accreditation at the International Academy of Oral Medicine and Toxicology (IAOMT). I am one of only three dentists in the UK to have this distinction, which involves extensive training in holistic dentistry, including the safe removal of amalgam. I now proudly have extra letters after my name: AIAOMT.

I am proud to have been awarded the What Clinic "Customer Service" award and the UK "Best Cosmetic Dentist" award at the English Hair and Beauty Awards. I have also undertaken many postgraduate training courses and like to stay up-to-date with advancements in technology.

We are always happy to answer any questions you may have. I have a wonderful team surrounding me, and they are only too happy to assist you with your inquiry.

When I switch off from all things teeth, I enjoy spending quality time with my wife, Olivia, and daughter, Aria. I have an active interest in Motorsport and cars and am also a Liverpool Football Club supporter—I hope this doesn't put you off coming to see me! 🙂

Lisa Whittle - Holistic Integrated Mental Health

  • Qualified in Psychotherapy (Children, Adolescents, Adults and Families
  • Living Nutrition
  • Craniosacral Therapy
  • Energy Modalitie

I have a particular interest and focus in helping people enhance their mental and emotional well-being, thereby increasing their level of happiness. I am an accredited psychotherapist but find that working with a whole mind, body, spirit approach is more effective than working with the mind and emotions alone. What someone is eating (or not eating) has a huge impact on how they feel and how their brain and body is working. Vitamins, minerals and herbs can play a significant role in balancing the body and mind. I find this particularly true for children and teenagers to help with depression, anxiety, addiction, ADHD and neurodiversity symptoms. Sometimes the whole solution is nutritional, often I find it is playing a part.

My own healing journey has spanned 30 years plus and along the way I have trained in many of the methods that helped me.

To this end as well as Psychotherapy and Trauma-Informed approaches I am qualified in Living Nutrition, Craniosacral Therapy and Energy Modalities such as Resonance Repatterning, Tera-Mai Seichem, EFT, NLP, IEMT, The Supercoherence System and Flower Essences.
