After qualifying from St Bartholomews and The Royal London School of Medicine and Dentistry with Distinction Honour's. I began working in the general dental sector and also at a Harley Street Cosmetic Surgery, where I continued to develop my cosmetic and advanced restorative dentistry skills. I then decided to pursue international studies in the US, Brazil and France. Following this, I became one of the first UK dentists to be a specialist in Dental Implants from a prestigious Sao Paulo University. I founded The Smile Studios, where my team and I maintain and develop our high standards of dental services. I lecture at national and international events, my studies have also been published in international journals and more recently, I’ve been lecturing at national Universities and for the British Dental Association in affiliation with my role as the Philips’ Sonicare Ambassador.
My specialist interests are in cosmetics and dental implants, although I thoroughly enjoy general dentistry as well. My gentle yet preventive approach to dentistry helps my patients to get the best yet minimally invasive techniques so that their teeth can last a lifetime with no worries.
Some of my special simple tips include investing in the right toothbrush. Philips’ Sonicare brushes are the best on the market as they won’t damage your pearly whites. Another handy hint is to chew sugar-free gum after a meal, as it’ll increase saliva flow, while picking up debris – leaving you with a lovely clean mouth!
My schedule gets quite busy as I’m also a visiting surgeon, so travel around the UK performing difficult treatments on patients, which some practices are unable to perform. When I do get some free time, I devote a lot of it to charity work. I’ve been involved in fundraising abroad, in places such as Asia and South America. I also like to catch a Harlequins Rugby match when I can being a keen fan.

Kathy has been working as a dentist in the area since 1978 and has a special interest in cosmetic dentistry including tooth whitening, veneers, natural looking fillings and preventive dentistry. She works closely with Danny Temkin (our oral surgeon specializing in implants), to restore the implants and to ensure that all patients experience a high degree of continuity.
She is quick to detect other symptoms such as headaches and stiff necks which may be caused by jaw clenching and teeth grinding. These can easily be overlooked but under Kathy’s watchful eye, a revolutionary splint can very quickly minimise the very source of the pain. Those that know Kathy are always appreciative of the fact that she makes a point of being available to patients. It goes without saying that she is particularly aware and sensitive to the needs of nervous and anxious patients.

Junior qualified at The Royal London Hospital and has worked as a hygienist at this practice for many years. He believes that continual learning is fundamental to staying in tune with current treatment options as well as working in conjunction to the prescription of the dentist.
Patient centred care is at the heart of his philosophy. The knowledge that a healthy and clean oral cavity will sustain simple and complex dental work for many years is fundamental. Yet he is aware that the work done as a hygienist constitutes only 20%, it's the 80% of the patients' home care that will have the greatest effect on oral health. To this end, Junior places huge emphasis on an effective oral health regime.
