Meet our Team

All our dentists adhere to the rules governing the profession under strict guidance from the General Dental Council (GDC) "Standards for Dental Professionals".

 I am proud to be a general practitioner but lucky enough to be able to chose the aspects of general dentistry  I wish to undertake! Together with my wife Eve we have owned this practice since 2010 and amidst many worthless distractions, have built this into a successful  private practice. I love being a dentist and tolerate running a business to be able to practice the dentistry I want.

I focus mainly on dental implantology, crown and bridgework and Invisalign.

Outside of work I am a keen tennis player which comes distant second to family time with my wife and  2 wonderful boys

I started out in 1995 as a trainee orthodontic nurse in Hong Kong which taught me a great deal at a young age. Putting me in good stead to become a Registered Dental Nurse here in the United Kingdom.

Gaining a wealth of experience in many areas of dental healthcare within the NHS and private sector has brought me to where I am today. I stepped into the role of Practice manager in a previous position and have remained in this role ever since !

 

My role is to ensure that our dedicated team have all the support and resources they require to enable them to provide you with the very highest level of care possible and ensure the smooth daily running of our practice. I am also available to discuss all aspects of our patient's – or a potential patient's - dental healthcare/treatment. I pride myself in being an approachable individual and enjoy my role within the practice.

 

Martin and I have used our knowledge, experience’s within dentistry and our personal expectations to develop a uniquely bespoke practice that would benefit our patients.

 

Outside of work I love being with my two boys they keep me very busy being a full-time mum.I enjoy traveling, pilates and body jungle. Being with family and friends is very important to me.

Patient Journey

We will do our best to provide you with the most convenient appointment time to suit your diary. We offer early morning and late night appointments with the ability to arrange your dental examination and hygiene appointment at the same time.

As a new patient you will be asked to complete a medical questionnaire so that your dentist understands your health history prior to meeting you. This will be routinely reviewed to make sure we remain informed. At your first appointment your dentist will chat to you to find out about your oral health routine and how satisfied you are with your smile. After a thorough dental examination, including mouth cancer screening and x-rays if required, a treatment plan and estimate will be devised.

Your dentist will talk to you about preventative techniques to improve your oral health and help you reduce the need for any dental treatment in the future.

At Botesdale Dental Practice, our aim is for every patient who comes into the practice to feel at home, no matter what the reason for their visit is. The whole team wants every patient's journey at the practice to be relaxed, positive, and as unique as they are.

Every patient will have their own set of needs, desires, hopes and fears about dental treatment, so we will spend time getting to know you to find out what yours are, and to answer any questions you may have. We strive to provide the highest standards of treatment for every patient, at every appointment, in every aspect of dentistry. All of this is done by our dedicated team who offer an unrivalled set of skills and treatments, provided in a caring, compassionate manner, all under one roof.

The Botesdale Dental Practice believes that excellent care in dentistry begins with meeting with a patient, then exceeding the expectations of that patient. We aim to deliver a completely personalised service in a comfortable and relaxed environment, using the most advanced equipment, materials and techniques.

We wish to provide a service that goes above and beyond the usual experience many people have become use to. A service that as a family practice we would want for ourselves and our family members. We want our patients to receive a personal experience they value.

Located in the tranquil village of Botesdale, the practice has been designed with comfort in mind. Your first point of contact will be our helpful, friendly reception team, Eve & Sue who can answer many of your questions. They will ascertain what has brought you to the practice and will match the appropriate appointment to suit your needs.

While you wait for your appointments you can relax in our comfortable homely waiting area, where you can enjoy a little you time and generally make yourself at home.

Following your initial consultation, you will be advised on the treatments suggested by our dentist who will create and implement a full treatment plan for your perusal. Our dentist will have overall responsibility for your care at all times.
