25-year-old Hussein and Hassan Dalghous, best known for their ‘Twin Workout’ YouTube channel, are pioneering dentists from Leeds who specialise in the fast-growing area of restorative and cosmetic dentistry.
The pair, who attended Roundhay School, are determined to improve the nation’s oral health and make a visit to the dentist a more positive and transformative experience.
The twins are planning an ambitious expansion programme to open 400 new clinics (via a franchise model) across the nation over the next three years. These new clinics will offer access to the best dental specialists and modern day procedures including facial aesthetics, implants, teeth straightening, veneers, and complex surgical extractions and bone grafts.
Although oral health in the UK has never been better than it is today, research shows that 39% of adults don’t go to the dentist regularly, 31% of adults have tooth decay and a whopping 74% of adults have had a tooth extracted, while 34% fear a visit to the dentist.
The twins attained their dental degrees at the prestigious University of Valencia, and now practice at their father Dr Abdul Dalghous’s Yorkshire Dental Suite, who himself is a highly trained oral surgeon and Maxillofacial specialist.
A look at the Yorkshire Dental Suite founded by the twins’ father Dr Abdul Dalghous, reveals some of the ideas that the dynamic twins have put into practice to change the dental experience.
The luxurious clinic, which is the highest rated dental practice on Google and Facebook in the North of England, appears more like a day spa than a dental clinic with its leather sofas, expensive artwork and lighting, top spec fit out and high tech equipment.
Talking about why he chose dentistry as a career, Hussein Dalghous explains: “Until the eighteenth century there were no professional dentists. Dentistry was close to torture! It wasn’t until the introduction of the NHS in 1948 that the British population had free access to dental treatment by which time treatment procedures had improved.
“However, we have come a long way since then. It is the new best in class cosmetic and restorative treatments that we want to make more widely available across the country.
“Dentistry is so predictable now for both the dentist and patient. The days of metal braces are gone and patients can now transform their smiles in a discreet and stress-free way with treatments like clear aligners, whitening and composite bonding.
“We see ourselves as dental industry visionaries who are on a mission to get people back to the dentist. Although cosmetic dentistry is booming, there are so many work days lost to dental problems each year in the UK.”
His twin brother, Hassan Dalghous adds: “We see first hand how a good dentist can affect a patient’s life. As dental professionals we are truly blessed to have the powers we have. We want to make the type of service we offer in Leeds accessible to patients nationwide. Reduce the shocking statistics out there and stop people going abroad to places likeTurkey as we have seen the damaging effects this can lead to.”
“Our clinics will offer patients access to the most advanced techniques in general, cosmetic and reconstructive dentistry rarely available outside London. And for those that want a dazzling smile, there’s access to our new teeth whitening product which has radically improved the way whitening treatment is performed.
“With all of this set up, we hope to become known as the nation’s smile doctors. The only downside is we may end up with less time in the gym!”
