BDS (London) MSc 1985
MSc (KCL) 2013
GDC No. 60883
Paul qualified from Kings College London in 1985. Modern dentistry is extremely complex. Very early on he realised that if it is practised privately at the highest level; once patients understand his way of working, they really appreciate being treated gently and kindly, having time spent with them, and using best quality materials, advanced techniques and state of the art equipment. Treatments provided in this way using high magnification optics are more stress free, comfortable, longer lasting, and in the long run, more economical. Several of Paul's patients have been with him since qualification and as a result, he has gained considerable insight into what treatments work and last well.
It has been proven that smiling is good for you and a beautiful smile can be beneficial to health and wellbeing. Paul is amongst the first of a small number of Dentists in the UK to complete the MSc degree course in Aesthetic Dentistry from Kings College London with distinction. This was a demanding three year course which has enabled him to offer state of the art cosmetic dental treatment; with in depth knowledge to ensure that the work you choose looks wonderful, is minimally invasive, and long lasting. Paul offers treatments ranging from isolated problem areas such as discoloured fillings to a mini-makeover (Whitening + minor work) to full smile-makeovers. Paul is also an Invisalign provider.
Paul has been involved in continuous Postgraduate Education ever since qualification, and completed the UCL Eastman Diploma in Restorative Dentistry in December 2000. He is currently a Module Lead and first examiner on the Kings College Aesthetic Dentistry MSc course, and am a former Chairman and for 10 years Secretary of the Brighton British Dental Association. He looks forward to meeting you.
