Our building works are now complete!
We are delighted to announce that we are now happily settled in to our new extension to the practice. We now have a
- new reception area and spacious waiting room
- private non clinical consultation room
- state of the art sterilisation room
- CBCT scanner so patients do not have to travel to London for CT scans prior to implant placement
We also have disabled access and parking for patients.

She graduated from Kings College, London in 2011 and has since worked in both general practice and at the maxillofacial unit at John Radcliffe Hospital, Oxford. Kruti then went on to complete her 3 year Specialist Periodontist training at the Eastman Dental Hospital, UCL.
In April 2016, Alex Mustard, a Specialist Endodontist will be joining the practice. Endodontics, as defined by the General Dental Council, is the cause, diagnosis, prevention and treatment of diseases and injuries of the tooth root, dental pulp, and surrounding tissue.
Alex has been a Speciality Doctor in Endodontics at the Eastman Dental Hospital, University College London since 2009 and has managed many patients with complex endodontic problems. He has also supervised post graduate students on a variety of Masters and specialist training programmes as well as teaching and lecturing. He is a member of the British Endodontic Society.
In August, Justin Darby joined our team as a Specialist Periodontist.
Justin trained in Australia and qualified in 1999 before working around Australia as a Squadron Leader Dental Officer in the Royal Australian Air Force. In 2007, he completed a three year postgraduate Masters in Periodontics, specialising in gum disease and dental implant placement. Having spent 8 years working as a Specialist Periodontist in private practice in Australia, he has now moved with his family to the UK. He is a registered specialist with the General Dental Council.
In September, we have Nick Coller joining us as a dental hygienist/therapist. Currently, patients have to wait a minimum of 6 weeks for an appointment with Tracey, so the addition of Nick to our team means that we can provide a better service for our own patients and those referred from outside the practice. Nick qualified in 2103 from Kings College Hospital, winning the Tutors' Award, and is highly regarded among his peers, particularly in the management of phobic and nervous patients.
Guy Stephens has just been recognised by the GDC as a Specialist Prosthodontist after 4 years post graduate study. He now joins an elite group who are recognised by their governing body for their outstanding level of expertise.
