Ethos, Profile and Mission


“I believe in the beauty that comes from within, a healthy mouth can have such a great impact on social interaction, positive self-image and overall body health. A healthy smile is a beautiful smile!

My passion is in prevention, helping you improve your oral health and sense of well-being since improving the health of your mouth can have a positive effect on general health as well. Based on our current knowledge, prevention both at tooth and tooth support levels is possible and should be our priority and ultimate goal towards a healthier mouth/body and long-lasting dentition.

Everyone expects to keep their teeth for life these days, therefore good health of the supporting tissues of the teeth is so important – this is my role, to help you understand the issues involved, overcome them and achieve a stable outcome, a cleaner and healthier mouth for life! It is such a great feeling to achieve together a high level of oral health and then maintain that indefinitely and remain stable over the years!

Clean teeth – Healthy gums – Fresh breath – Improved body health:
a few things to smile about!!”

Mission – My Promise to You

Focus on you as an individual and achieve optimal treatment outcomes through professional excellence:

  • Offer an individualised approach, based on thorough relevant history and detailed assessment of your situation at the beginning, as well as throughout your treatment and follow-up.
  • Discuss all aspects of treatment with you, i.e. aetiology, diagnosis, treatment options, costs and outcomes, aiming to improve your knowledge and understanding of the condition, build appropriate rapport and achieve behaviour modification in terms of optimal plaque control, a crucial factor in resolution of periodontal inflammation.
  • Aim to provide pain-free, gentle and considerate treatment, show empathy and understanding of your individual circumstances.
  • Promote the healing potential of the tissues by appropriate non-surgical therapy in the majority of cases, follow surgical techniques only where absolutely indicated and justified.
  • Apply evidence-based techniques to enhance outcomes.
  • Set up individualised supportive periodontal therapy regimes to ensure stability, also analyse progress at appropriate intervals and adjust regimes as indicated to maintain favourable outcomes.
  • Follow up your progress appropriately and analyse short and long term outcomes of periodontal therapy for the benefit of your care.
