In His Own Words

Dental implants are often one of the simplest treatment choices, provided they are delivered in a correct manner and in an appropriate setting. Choosing to have dental implants can be a life-changing decision for many patients, so choosing the right clinic and dentist is extremely important.

My attitude to patient care is very simple – I believe in treating my patients in the way I would wish to be treated myself. This might sound obvious, but when helping a patient make an important decision, it’s important to me personally that they understand every aspect of their proposed treatment. This way I can be sure that they have complete confidence in their treatment decision and my skills as a dentist experienced in implants. The key to providing precise, effective and comfortable dental implants is making full use of the latest dental technologies such as CT scans and a digital work flow to meticulously plan each operation.

This, combined with high quality implant systems supported by impeccable research and evidence, means that my patient and I can be sure of their treatment.
