BDS Cardiff (1980 Birmingham) Dip. Hyp. GDC No: 54645
I started work at the New Road Dental Practice in 1985. I had qualified from Cardiff Dental School at the Welsh National School of Medicine in 1980. I worked in South Wales for the next 5 years gaining experience in children’s
dentistry, oral surgery and treating elderly patients. I then worked in the Chepstow Plastic Surgery and Oro-maxillofacial Unit followed by another 2 years as a Registrar in Dentistry in Morriston and Singleton Hospitals in Swansea.
Having grown up In Wychbold and been educated in Worcester I wanted to return home and started working with Matthew Crisp. He had established the practice in Bromsgrove a few years before. Gradually we expanded the practice on New Road whilst working from one surgery which used to be a sitting room. Working in the evenings and Saturday mornings we attracted an ever increasing number of patients, some travelling long distances to be provided with good quality dentistry.
We were joined by the Solanki brothers, (Ravi in 2002 and Pritesh in 2003) who later took over the running of the practice and have allowed the practice to develop in new directions, catering for our patients needs.
We are now a training practice and we have new dentists gaining experience within the practice, learning expert skills in patient management in their first few years of their dental education.
You could say Dentistry is in my genes as my parents were both qualified in Medicine and Dentistry but they chose to work in the field of Dentistry. Having a family of my own allowed me to relate to treating the whole family in the dental surgery. My extensive experience with some people who are nervous and some need encouragement to visit us propelled me to take an extra qualification in advanced dental hypnosis which now equips me to relax patients prior to treatment and allows nervous patients to feel safe and secure in the dental chair.
We pride ourselves in providing a friendly, happy environment for our patients and their families, welcoming newcomers as well as our many “old friends”!!
