Favourite part of the job
My biggest interest is in rehabilitation of patients who require extensive multidisciplinary dentistry. I take pride in utilizing my specialist skills set to carry out treatments to the highest standard, in order to achieve long – term predictable outcomes. I have an eye for detail and will aim to address the cosmetic concerns relating to a patient’s smile as well as ensuring the treatment is in harmony with the functional requirements of their dentition. I particularly enjoy treating anxious patients and slowly increasing their confidence in visiting the dentist by putting them at ease with my calm patient manner and communication skills.
I specialise in prosthodontics, which is a speciality dedicated to expert diagnoses and treatment planning. Following detailed assessments and discussions, I will provide a comprehensive treatment plan, in keeping with functional and aesthetic demands of the patient.
It’s a speciality that involves providing all kinds of prosthesis, from simple composite bonding to veneers, crowns, bridges, dentures and implants. It requires 3 additional years of training for a dentist and makes you an expert in dealing with complex cases to include full mouth rehabilitations that often involve multiple areas of dentistry, to give you a smile that will predictably last the test of time.
I have worked in multiple dental hospitals throughout the country and gained experience in providing complex extractions and dealing with anxious patients. I have a very calm patient manner and will do my best to make you feel at ease and slowly increase your confidence in visiting the dentist and provide you with teeth you can smile about.
Why you should come see me specifically
Every dentist is different and equally every specialist is different in their own way.
I worked as a dentist for 5 years prior to commencing my specialist training, including posts in hospital. This makes me a very well rounded clinician who can comprehensively deal with all areas of routine dentistry, as well as having specialist skills to firstly diagnose and treatment plan your case and then expertly execute it to give a both a functional as well as aesthetic smile.
For me predictability is very important, and I want the restorations to last the test of time, whether it’s a simple crown or a full mouth rehabilitation on implants.
I have very good attention to detail which has been accentuated through my specialist training. I use photography as a great tool to ensure no detail is spared throughout your treatment journey. As well as this, I have a lot of experience in providing very complex dentistry and can show you cases where I have done something similar, so you can appreciate what will be possible for your smile.
Lastly, I see a lot of patients who have had treatment in the past which they are not happy with and we will work together to make corrections and get your smile to the standard we are really pleased with.
