Get to know YOUR Dentist:
Why did you become a dentist and what do you enjoy most about your work?
I became a dentist predominantly to follow through my passion in science but I can now see how it has allowed me to use my artistic abilities, my scientific knowledge and creative talents combined to produce some beautiful and stunning smiles.
Four words your close friends would use to describe you?
What treatments do you offer?
I create customised, natural-looking healthy smiles based on a sound foundation using interdisciplinary multifaceted dentistry including the latest dentistry, quality dental implants and orthodontics for adults. I use all the latest technologies to formulate personalised treatment plans and options based upon my patient’s needs and requirements.
Top tips to keep healthy teeth?
Regular maintenance and dental check-ups can prevent a whole plethora of dental ailments detecting biological and structural deterioration much sooner; meaning less future dentistry.
I advise regular tooth brushing (preferably with an electric tooth brush) twice a day, with use of interdental cleaning aids and a fluoride toothpaste. A diet that consists of 3-4 meals a day without in between snacking is a good starting point.
What can be done for whiter teeth?
Often teeth can look much better after removal of stains and discolourations but modern teeth whitening treatments work very well too. Alternatively, we can customise the end smile by use of no preparation (no drill and no injection) Ultrathin Veneers. Here we can change the shape and form of your teeth as well as the colour transforming your smile quickly and affordable.
In your opinion, what are the most exciting new treatments available for a smile makeover?
Which products you would recommend?
An electric toothbrush such as Philips Sonicare is great taking the effort out of toothbrushing hence appealing to the majority. For sensitive teeth, I really like Sensodyne Pronamel which helps against acid erosion as well as having a nicer taste than most toothpaste for sensitive teeth.
The best mouthwash I feel is Retardex which helps overcome gum problems as well.

Many people believe that mouthwashes, flossing, and toothpaste will literally ‘wash away their dental problems”.
Unfortunately, they don’t. They cannot fix problems that are much deeper. Mouthwashes simply help and assist to maintain oral health.
They are auxiliary aids taking your cleaning to a higher level but in order for it to be most effective a baseline level of proper tooth brushing and flossing should exist.
