The Harley Dental Centre of Excellence, based in Harley Street, is launching a new, lower cost dental scheme spanning implants, invisible braces, cosmetic dental treatments and general dental care. To promote this unique service, in-carriage posters are positioned in a large number of trains in the network as part of a multi-media marketing campaign from 19th September.
