This is our Dental Therapist Paul.
Paul worked at our dental practices until July 2013 as a Dental Nurse, before deciding to pursue a career in Dental Therapy. Paul qualified as a Dental Therapist at Teesside University in June 2016.
Although Paul is at the beginning of his career, he has gained a wealth of knowledge and experience, dealing with a large number of patients from a variety of backgrounds, which has advanced his skills to further his confidence and competence as a Dental Therapist. Paul has experience treating patients holistically with an ethos of minimally invasive dentistry to promote ethical decisions for prolonged natural dentition. Paul has special interests in paediatrics and general restorative procedures, which he will continue to utilise and develop to enhance the care of his patients whilst ensuring periodontal stability.
