Chris Brann, Principal dentist, practice owner and clinical director
(Also makes tea, buys sausage rolls and doughnuts) GDC No. 71716

Chris has been a dentist for almost 22 years – all of it in General Dental Practice – and bought the practice he first started in, Stoke Dental, eleven years ago. In recent years, he has taken on a Clinical Director role and now provides the Invisalign System alongside General and Implant Dentistry.

Outside of work Chris has been a keen sailor and windsurfer but nowadays is more likely to be seen on the Ski slope. He attends slalom race events and enjoys ‘catching some air’ off the jumps. He’s not very good, but generally comes back in one piece.

We are 5 minutes from the A303 (main London west route). Follow your satnav but when you turn into Matts Lane, carry straight on, do not turn down Hamdon Close (some satnavs will try and send you down here). We are on your left.


Car-parking is available in a small parking bay and on the street outside the practice.
