Nowadays there really is no need for anybody to suffer the indignation of absent or unsightly teeth. I enjoy all aspects of dentistry, but my special interests are implants, orthodontics and cosmetic dentistry.
I have over ten years’ experience placing dental implants and over sixteen years’ experience in orthodontics. I have completed numerous tuition courses in Boston, London, Spain, Germany and South Africa to become proficient in advanced procedures such as ridge augmentation (including bone grafting), sinus augmentation and utilising Plasma Rich in Growth Factors which speeds up healing and reduces discomfort.
My latest interest is dentofacial orthopaedics which is a revolutionary advance in orthodontics. This is a holistic approach which aims to correct the skeletal imbalance intrinsic to some malocclusions (“crooked teeth”) and often removes the need for tooth extractions.
I have attended a series of courses by the world-renowned Texan orthodontist, Dr Skip Truitt, on this subject.
I have a passion for “minimally invasive” dentistry. I believe that wherever possible, it is best to maintain or enhance what nature has provided, I think my patients appreciate this too!
I like to lead my team by example, providing an experience whereby the patient feels reassured, confident and a part of the decision-making process.
To me, work rarely feels like “work”, which is a very fortunate place to be!
