I qualified in 1989 from Guy’s Hospital and was invited to stay as a House Officer where I worked post qualifying. I worked in general practice for a time in Eastbourne and in Lewes for the last 15 years. I have a particular interest in Endodontics and have undergone advanced endodontic training at the Eastman Dental Hosptical. I was awarded the Postgraduate Certicate in Endodontics from University College London in 2007. I am a member of the British Endodontic Society. I am a past president of the British Denatl Association Brighton Section. I accept an increasing number of referrals from dentists within my practice and other local practitioners. I have facilities to offer Intravenous Sedation and Dr Rex Yetton FRCA (an anaethetist at the Royal Sussex County Hosptial Brighton) attends our pratice for regular sessions to provide this service.
My surgery hours are Monday, Wednesday and Friday 8.30am-4.45pm. Tuesday and Thursday 3.15 to 8.15
Endodontic treatment is the treatment of the inside of the tooth. Most of Endodontics comprises what is known as root canal treatment. It enables you to keep natural teeth as a healthy foundation for chewing, biting and smiling for years to come.
Endodontic treatment becomes necessary when the pulp of the tooth becomes inflamed or infected. The endodontist removes the inflamed or infected pulp, carefully and precisely cleans and shapes the inside of the tooth and fills and seals the space.
After root canal treatment by the endodontist, patients return to their own dentist for the tooth to be crowned or otherwise restored to function.
