When you enter our practice, you will be treated in the same way we treat our family members.
To us, our patients come first. We understand that visiting the dentist is not something most people look forward to and for many it's something that they fear and dread. Our goal is to make every experience you have with us, calm and gentle. Your needs and concerns will be heard and you will be treated in a completely non-judgemental manner.
We are equipped with the latest techniques and equipment to provide you with pain-free and comfortable dental treatment. You can see from our practice promises, that this is something we are obsessive about.
You will be treated with respect and we will only recommend treatment that will be of benefit to you. We would only advise on treatment that we ourselves would have or would carry out for our family members.
BDS (Lond) 2000, MFGDP(UK) 2003
GDC No: 78336
I graduated from Guy's Dental Hospital in 2000. I have worked at Brightside Dental as an associate since 2004 and in 2010 I took over ownership. The main reason I made the step to take over the practice was to have the opportunity to modernise the practice and provide the best possible service for our patients.
I regularly attend courses and further training to develop my skills and knowledge, to continue to improve the patient experience.
I strive to provide gentle and painless dental care. I have a keen interest in Invisalign teeth straightening and seeing nervous patients, as it is always great to see how transforming someone's smile and improving their confidence can have such a positive impact on their life.
Outside of the practice I enjoy spending time with my family and friends, watching football and attending concerts.
BDS (Sheff) 2012 PG Dip (Orthodontics)
GDC No: 240479
After qualifying from University of Sheffield in 2012, I have since gained a wide range of experience working in various dental practices across England and Wales.
My philosophy is to practice minimally invasive dentistry, with an emphasis on prevention to create happy smiles!
My particular areas of interest are Orthodontics, Cosmetic dentistry and treatment of patients with anxieties & phobias.
I have a postgraduate diploma in Orthodontics and I am a certified Invisalign provider. This means I understand the individual differences of each smile. I pride myself on providing a holistic approach to all my orthodontic cases to allow for a smooth journey and a happy, smiley outcome!
When I'm not at work, I keep fit playing 11-a-side football and competing in Triathlons. I have completed numerous Triathlons across the UK, and plan to continue this in the future. I also have a keen interest in photography, backpacking and love a good music festival!
BDS (Cardiff) 2016
GDC No: 265272
I graduated in 2016 and have since completed my foundation-training year. I am young, eager and motivated to further develop my career and skills as an associate dentist to provide the highest quality care for patients.
Further to this, I completed a Cosmetic Orthodontic course and I am an accredited Invisalign provider. I continue to undertake regular training courses to further my skills, improve my work, and enhance my professional development.
Outside of work I like to keep very active. I go to the gym regularly and also play a lot of sport; football and badminton in the winter and cricket in the summer. I also enjoy travelling and relaxing with family and friends.

MChD/ BChD from Leeds
GDC No: 270763
I graduated in 2017 from the University of Leeds. My interests lie within cosmetic dentistry, facial aesthetics and skincare. I have undertaken operative and aesthetic restorative post graduate training alongside a veneers masterclass, to ensure I am able to provide the highest quality of care to my patients.
I am also a certified invisalign provider. I undertook facial aesthetics training in Harley Street, and I am confident in my skills and attention to detail, to provide subtle natural enhancements for my patients to make them feel more confident with their appearance.
I also have a keen interest in skincare. As an Obagi provider, I am able to prescribe medical grade skin care for my patients who suffer with acne, pigmentation or even for those want to just keep their skin looking youthful! My combination of skills allows me to provide patients with a beautiful smile, whilst also helping them feel confident in their own skin.
Outside of work, I love long distance running and I regularly participate in my local park run! I also play badminton recreationally.
When I’m not at the practice, you’ll find me spending time with my family and friends and playing with my puppy. I’m also a keen traveller and love backpacking!
