Quadrant Dental: A Winning Smile
Following on from our introduction to our full-time clinicians, we now talk to the specialists at Quadrant Dental Practice
I qualiﬁed from Kings College London in 1991. I worked in general practice and subsequently studied for a Master’s degree in Periodontics at the prestigious Eastman Dental Hospital which is part of University College London. Having graduated with an MSc in 1997, I was invited to join the Department of Periodontics at the Eastman. Here I provided complex periodontal treatment in a consultant-led clinic. My thesis was published in ‘The Archives of Oral Biology’ and my research has also been presented at the International Association of Dental Research. In 2001 I was accepted onto the General Dental Council’s specialist register in Periodontics.
I have worked in several prestigious practices over the years. Here I have been able to treat both general and specialist periodontal cases referred to me by other dentists. As of October, I am delighted to be able to offer this service at Quadrant Dental Practice.
I provide care in all aspects of general dentistry as well as in specialist periodontal cases. I am also experienced at restoring implant cases and work very closely with implant providers. I believe in a fully preventive approach and am keen on a close and communicative approach to providing comfortable and successful outcomes. Primarily, I am passionate about ensuring that my patients are fully involved in their care and that they are always made aware of the choices available for their treatment. Gum disease is a very prevalent and insidious disease that has far-reaching health implications, as well as the ability to cause serious bone loss that can lead irreversible consequences of losing teeth. I ﬁrmly believe that early intervention can prevent such a distressing scenario.
I am pleased to be working alongside Judith and her team at Quadrant Dental Practice in Epsom.
I graduated from University College Hospital London, and I am a Fellow of the Royal College of Surgeons of England. I have continued to develop my interest in dental surgery by completing a Master of Science degree in dental implants at Guys’ Hospital London. I am recognised on the list of registered Specialists in Oral Surgery. I have held long-term positions, and been very involved in the Oral Surgery departments, at Epsom, St Helier and East Surrey hospitals.
I enjoy treating patients for their oral surgery needs, such as removal of teeth with advanced decay or painful impacted wisdom teeth. I offer treatment to anxious patients, or those with difﬁ cult surgical cases, under intravenous sedation.
Sedation is provided in practice by anaesthetists from Sedation Solutions, who I have now worked with for over 15 years. Sedation is the safe and effective administration of drugs to alleviate anxiety, increase relaxation and make the patient comfortable. I am pleased to cater for more complex surgical treatments at the Quadrant Dental Practice where I am accompanied by suitably qualiﬁed staff within a well-equipped surgery.
I am happy to consult with and treat patients who wish to have dental implants as part of their overall dental care. I have over 18 years of experience in implant dentistry.
I pride myself on treating all patients in a kind and considerate manner and keeping them fully informed about their treatment and available options. Whether you have pain or symptoms causing you concern, or you have a simple oral surgery or implant query you would like answered please contact Quadrant Dental Practice and book an appointment. I am happy to answer your questions and provide appropriate treatment.
I was recently appointed as the chair-person for the ‘Oral Surgery Managed Clinical Network’. This is a challenging and enjoyable role, which ensures my professional knowledge of current treatments and procedures are kept right up to date.
Outside of dentistry I am married with two teenage children who are both at St Andrews School in Leatherhead. I am passionate about horse riding and compete locally in dressage.
We at Quadrant Dental Practice are welcoming referrals from other practices, but also from patients who wish to speak to us about the services we can provide. Please get in touch and our team will be very happy to spend time to talk you through what we do.
“We will go the extra mile to create your perfect smile.”.
