About Dr Claire Wilkinson

Dr Claire Wilkinson is the Principal Dentist and owner of The Courtyard Clinic in Chertsey, Surrey. She graduated with her initial dental degree from the University of Leeds in 2012. Since then, she has worked in some demanding roles within dentistry, including at The Royal London Hospital, where she developed her skills in delivering maxillofacial surgical treatments and complex restorative procedures. 

In addition, Dr Wilkinson has furthered her studies by completing advanced restorative dentistry courses, including a year-long program run by Dr Chriss Orr. To support her professional development, Dr Wilkinson has also been awarded the Membership of the Faculty of Dental Surgery. 

Dr Wilkinson joined The Courtyard Clinic in 2015 and bought the practice three years later. Since then, she has further built on the practice’s strengths and successes. Her main interests focus on general dentistry; however, as a Dental Phobia Certified dentist, she is noted for her empathetic approach to delivering the best possible standard of care. 

Through her natural love of dentistry, she is able to demonstrate patience and understanding to nervous patients and strives to make everyone feel at ease. 

Alongside her interest in dentistry, Dr Wilkinson has studied skin science and is qualified to provide facial aesthetics treatments using fillers and anti-wrinkle injections. As well as treating patients with skin conditions using medical-grade skin treatments, Dr Wilkinson is also a brand ambassador for ZO, a skin health brand. To further her skills in this area, Dr Wilkinson is a member of the Teoxane Academy, a leader in dermal filler training. 

Outside of her professional work, Dr Wilkinson enjoys hiking, fitness, painting, and singing.

The thought of going to the dentist used to make me feel indescribably anxious to the point of cancelling my appointment and hoping my teeth would look after themselves with no future problems. I suppose it was the thought of losing control, feeling numbness in my mouth after injections, choking etc. My son introduced me to The Courtyard Clinic, Dr Clare Wilkinson and I have not looked back. From calling Alison Muir and making the first appointment and telling her how anxious I was I could not have been in better hands. Dr Clare knew how anxious I was and on my initial consultation/treatment informed me of different types of medication that could help me which in the end I did not need. She reassured me every step of the way continually asking if I was ok and that any time she could stop. That made me feel in control and that she understood and had listened to me. I currently have had two crowns fitted (latest technology used - so no ghastly material used to make an impression of your teeth) The crowns were fitted on the same day! I have also had root canal treatment and Dr Clare is working with me to produce my target " a beautiful smile " with clean, white healthy teeth and gums. My fear of the dentist has nearly all but gone as I still get nervous but I know that Dr Clare and her colleagues are an absolutely brilliant team giving an exceptional individual customer service. Dr Clare and her team have helped me overcome my dentist phobia! Hooray! I

I am very nervous about injections and dental treatment but very pleased to be helped and reassured by Dr Wilkinson and all her staff. My fear is far less since I started having treatment at The Courtyard Clinic in Chertsey and I would recommend to any who suffers from dental phobia

I have never been a fan of going to the dentist but since having my treatment done at the Courtyard Clinic my views have change. The staff always go above and beyond, making sure each visit is stress free. The dentists are extremely knowledgeable and friendly. Now I don’t put off making an appointment, I am so grateful that I found them.

I have been very nervous of a visit to the dentist for years. A good friend recommended The Courtyard Clinic in Chertsey and I booked to see Claire Holly Wilkinson. My initial phone call was handled by Alison and she made me feel at ease very quickly. On arrival I was met by Emma who looked after me and made me feel comfortable. Claire, the dentist, was so friendly I soon began to relax and feel less nervous and anxious. I have now had treatment during 3 visits to the Clinic and I can only say that the whole experience ahs been amazing. Very good dentist with great friendly staff and calm environment.
