We take pride in running a practice where people love to work, and our patients love to attend.
As well as providing unparalleled, professional dentistry in a welcoming and trusting environment, equally important to us, is a commitment to making a positive difference both locally and globally through the way we run our business.
These commitments form part of our 'IKON in the Community' initiative.
We ensure a proportion of our time and budget is used to help develop our staff and support good causes in a strategic and planned way. We also run our practice in a way that minimises negative effects on the environment.
Our initiative has recently help us achieve an independently assessed gold standard in CSR (Corporate Social Responsibility).
To find out more about this prestigious accolade, please see the Dental CSR website.
We work strategically with our chosen causes for a minimum of 2 years. By committing to this timeframe, we can make significant differences and help the causes achieve more as they know they have long term backing from us and others. To respond to the many smaller local charities in need of support, money raised by our team goes into a community fund which is allocated to good causes in the area.
Dentaid works in the UK, providing free dental care for homeless and vulnerable people, and has also worked in over 70 countries providing safe, sustainable dental treatment in poor and remote communities.
Their mobile dental units visit hostels, day centres and night shelters across the UK, providing emergency treatment for people who find it difficult to access dental care.
They also support dentists around the world by providing equipment, running oral health programmes and sending teams of volunteer dental professionals to help them reach more patients.
Ealing Soup Kitchen has been providing a vital lifeline for the homeless and vulnerable in the area since 1973. As well as hot food, they also run regular drop-ins where they provide clothes, a hairdresser, showers, practical help, games and a doctor on site.
IKON help fund the Soup Kitchen and IKON staff volunteer at the drop-ins.
Ealing Cricket Club was formed in 1870, and is an important part of the local community.
IKON sponsor the Inter Franchise League, a local league competition for U9/8s and U11/10s, with the aim of getting more young people to engage in the sport of cricket.
IKON are proud to be supporting the 2021 Ealing Half Marathon, a fabulous community event that raises millions of pounds for worthy causes.
